The Foscam FI9804P is one of Foscam's latest "Plug & Play" cameras featuring the ability to connect via smartphone by simply scanning the QR code on the underside of the camera. Bypassing the need to access your router and setup port forwarding, the FI9804P can be set up effortlessly by anyone, even those with very little IT experience. The FI9804P adopts 720p HD video quality (1280 x 720) as well as a high performance media processor, single SOC chip (built-in ARM+DSP) and high speed video protocol processor. As a result, it is capable of H.264 video compression allowing for extremely smooth video transmission with minimal bandwidth consumption. In addition, due to the small file sizes produced by H.264 video compression it has the ability to save tremendous hard drive space when doing manual video recording. The Foscam FI9804P features 720p HD quality video, H.264 video compression, Wireless-N capability, remote internet viewing, motion detection, and night vision. In addition, it is smartphone compatible (Iphone, Android & Blackberry) as well as viewable over the internet using a compatible app. The camera functions well as part of a home or office security system with remote internet monitoring ability. With 60 second easy setup with QR code scan via Smartphone and the option of live viewing and storage via FoscamCloud (free trial included), this is one of the best values available for an outdoor surveillance camera purchase.

a cd, a wall wart a wall mount and small stuff. The funny thing on the box is, that IF the camera is used in any country outside the US,
the reach of the infra red-night vision is only 8 Meters (about 22 feet) -if it is used in the US it is 20 meters (about 50 feet) if you can believe the box (see pictures)....... European laws make the maker responsible for any statement they print on the box.....(that made them loose the first half star......no BS please....I am allergic
Setup, I dont have a cd rom drive anymore, so I needed to download the firmware and software needed from foscam.us
I do advice updating the firmware, it made some thing quite a bit easier. A small tool called ipcameratool helps you finding your camera in your IP setup.
IMPORTANT: If you plan on using the camera wireless, you MUST first set everything up via Ethernet cable.
I was able to setup the Alarm function (snapshot on movement) , motion detection, email, ddns (ip resolution over a unified address provided by FOSCAM) and Alarms within less then 1 hr. I admit I am computer savvy but I am NOT a rocket scientist.. If I can do it you can do it!
Small tip: I had problems with the camera reasigning the ip address when I disconnected from ethernet and connected via wifi.
So what I did is, I switched of DHCP and asigned the IP manually.
Port forwarding was reasonably easy, my Verizon router was very well programmed, setting the port was no problem. (This point may be a bit tricky for absolute beginners).
Email.......ok, that one was tricky. I tried first using gmail, but the information available to me was not correct and i did not manage to set it up via gmail. I know it has been done, and the support line at Foscam will know what to do. But since I run a server at 1&1 anyway, I used that smtp settings and it worked like a charm.
The picture quality is astonishing good. The motion alert works fantastic, the camera seems sturdy. So far, I give it 4 stars.
But I always update my reviews if things change. Please keep an eye on my review.
If you have questions, please ask, I am always happy to help IF I can.
Have a great day
I uploaded a nightime shot, I am really impressed by the quality

Still like this IP Cam a lot. All our Foscams continue to work well but there are a couple of things I should have mentioned in the original review. First, be sure to buy Foscam products from Amazon or directly from their web site. There are plenty of fakes out there so be careful. Second, I have experience with setting up over a dozen of these so it is no big deal for me, but you may want to pay for setting up your first one (and take a lot of notes). Port forwarding, which is necessary to be able to view them remotely, was a real mystery the first time I tried to set it up in my router. One recent improvement is they now offer free Dynamic DNS so you no longer have to go to somewhere like NOIP.com and setup an DDNS account. Third, getting it to send email alarms can be problematic on some email systems. I have had no problems with Charter or Wave Broadband, but Centurylink was a headache when trying to setup two for my sister. I did finally get it to work but I am not sure why. Fourth, the HD (720P and above) models (FI98xx) are the only way to go. Avoid the FI89XX models, the resolution (640 x 480) and clarity suck. I replaced all of ours with FI98xx models and it was well worth it. Fifth, they are most dependable when hard wired by Ethernet cable which half of ours are. I have to occasionally reboot the wireless ones, especially after a power outage. Sixth, you do need to get AC power to the camera. There is an alternative to that with Power Over Ethernet models (POE) but I don't have any of those and you still have to get a CAT 5 Ethernet cable to the cam and you need extra equipment (a POE hub / switch). Seventh, using Blue Iris means you have to have a computer running all the time, but you don't necessarily need to run Blue Iris. You can access the cams remotely with out it and they have built-in email and video alarm capability even without Blue Iris. Last, I recently picked up a FI9803 and it also has a good HD picture, is smaller and inexpensive but they probably work better in less exposed areas because the visor is small and not adjustable like the FI9804 and FI9805.

One of the attractions was that it can be used on a wifi network. Well, that's the theory anyway! I have found it to be very unreliable when connected wirelessly and I've given it the very best opportunity to excel. For context, and for those who will ask, I have downloaded the latest firmware for the camera, I initially connected it via ethernet to configure it, I have given it a static IP address. I have used an IP address that is outside the (DHCP) range that can be automatically assigned by my router. I have employed a number of wifi extenders and bought the hi-gain aerial for this unit. Even with all of that in place and the camera no more than a few feet from the wifi repeater unit it was losing connection somewhere between 30 and 90 times a day. Not good for a security camera! I checked the radiated wifi using a scanner and found the signal and throughput to be excellent.
I'm now using the camera on a wired connection but I still get a number of disconnections per day. I really have no idea what can be causing it now but it's working more frequently than not so I can live with it. If Foscam could sort out this problem it would be an excellent camera.
Excellent picture quality
Foscam require you to agree to email marketing in order to download updates
Auto infra-red for night time recording
Good motion sensing
Easy to fit
Integrates easily with Synology DS414J
The disconnection problem.
The big bundle of wires that necessitate a large hole to feed them through.
If you search for Foscam disconnection you'll find numerous posts with all sorts of explanations. I did, and I tried them all! (Even the ones that advise you to reduce the brightness to fix disconnections...)
For the price, it's a fairly good camera. However, for absolute, total peace of mind you need 100% uptime and this can't deliver that just yet.
Good quality picture. Easy to set up (provided you know what you are doing !!!)
Consigliatissimo a tutti
Il meglio di una videocamera a prezzo competitivo e di alta qualità. Facile Nell installazione e nella configurazione
Make sure you buy this camera form Foscam so that you get support.
