From the manufacturer
Modern life and work pulls us all in a million different directions.
How can we take charge?
With the Foscam FI9821P, you can pull everything together, in one place - check in on your home, kids, pets, even your office, right in the palm of your hand.
Instant access and remote viewing with our web and mobile apps means that you never have to wonder again if the kids are home from school, if the dog needs to be let out, or if you forgot to shut that window before it started pouring. Juggling life's responsibilities just got a lot easier.
The FI9821P is more than a security camera.
We've made security both simpler and more versatile than ever before: stay connected to what you love and never miss a moment no matter where you are.
Way Talk allows you to participate in the moment, not merely watch it. Your video feed is securely streamed in rich 720P detail, while remote pan/tilt even allows you to turn your view with an exceptional 300°/120° range of freedom. Our recording choices let you preserve footage how you want, when you want. Local storage does not charge monthly fees.
Reliability, value, and intelligence are our gold standards.
Foscam wouldn't be an internationally recognized brand in security, for over 10 years running, if we didn't understand that reliability, value, and intelligence are all three necessary for making an outstanding security camera.
The FI9821P features enhanced night vision (up to 26ft) and comes equipped with digital zoom (magnifies up to 6x). Say goodbye to straining and guessing at blurry, grainy, or poorly illuminated scenes: you'll enjoy crisp, well illuminated footage in 720P HD. Our smart alert and motion technology even avoids false alarms (e.g. plants swaying in wind).
Rich HD video quality.
Foscam build its own hardware in-house, ensuring exceptionally solid build quality with no cut corners. The result is a truly rich HD 720P stream offering incredible density of detail at a value that is unrivaled in the home security market, which is flooded with low-quality brands offering subpar HD video with cheaply sourced parts.
Full PTZ control.
The FI9821P's livestream is easy to maneuver remotely using either the Foscam smartphone app or your computer's web browser. Mount it on your wall, table, or shelf. It is reliable but affordable, and you don't have to sacrifice the versatility and control that crucially let you follow and record the action when a motion alert has been triggered - even if an intruder's movements place them outside of the camera's 75° stationary viewing range.
See through total darkness.
Night vision is one of the areas where higher quality hardware makes the most difference. The FI9821P's enhanced night vision uses high-intensity IR LEDs that illuminate details in crisp, clear night vision up to 26 feet away. Functions such as app push alerts and smart motion detection especially benefit from better night vision: the alerts are more sensitive and relevant, and this advantage is further enhanced by an intuitive app interface for customizing your motion sensitivity and alert settings.
No expensive monthly fees.
Choose and pay for only what you need: we believe in offering a full suite of storage options. Record video directly to an SD card (not included) by using the camera's SD slot, or send and store video by FTP, absolutely free. We even support NVRs (not included), NAS, and local hard drive recording. Our affordable Foscam Cloud service is also available to safeguard your footage from theft or damage by recording it to our secure Cloud (30-day trial included).
Be there, even when you're not.
- See your cameras in realtime on your smartphone.
- View recorded Cloud footage with convenient search and scan functions.
- Schedule recordings, configure alerts, and pan/tilt/zoom right from your mobile.
- Enjoy 24/7 access using our beautifully designed App, free with your camera.
Get only the alerts you care about.
- Smart motion detection is seamlessly integrated to your phone.
- You can receive push alerts any time relevant motion is detected.
- Custom motion sensitivity settings tailor the alerts to your camera's environment.
- Sound alerts can also detect events around or behind the camera's visual range (e.g. a baby crying or window breaking).
Secure cloud access over the web.
- 30-day Foscam Cloud trial included with your camera.
- Easily scan your Cloud footage with 24/7 access and unrivaled affordability.
- Quickly find and download any recording you're looking for.
- Offsite storage protects recordings against any footage loss that could result from damage such as fire, or theft of the camera.

The Foscam FI9821P is Foscam's first "Plug & Play" camera 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 FI9821P can be set up effortlessly by anyone, even those with very little IT experience. The FI9821P also features 1280 x 720p video resolution, h.264 video compression, built-in DVR via SD card (upto 32gb), two-way audio, Wi-Fi-N capability, pan/tilt, remote internet viewing, motion detection, night-vision as well as network video recording capability. In addition, it is smartphone compatible (iPhone, Android - app required) as well as viewable over the internet using standard browsers on PC (Firefox, IE & Chrome) or Mac (Safari only). The camera functions well as a smartphone baby, pet or elderly parent monitor or as part of a complete home/office security system with remote internet monitoring ability. The FI9821P improves on the FI8910W by adopting high performance media and video processors capable of H.264 video compression which allows for ultra-smooth high definition video transmission, increased FPS and minimal bandwidth consumption. In addition, due to the small file sizes produced by H.264 video compression it has the ability to save tremendous disk space when doing video recording.

BTW -- the Firefox about:config edit mentioned in some comments does not work for me (using Firefox 52.0 32 bit)... nothing but a grey screen appears (even after plugin re-install, cache clear & re-start).
The problem is that the Foscam plugin is incompatible with secure connection protocols (e.g., https). You can make PTZ access work by: 1) being sure no other process (like streaming) is accessing the camera; 2) using temporary browser work-arounds like Firefox Extended Support Release).
Want a great way to drive off customers?? Sell a browser-dependent product, then break its interface and / or fail to support browser security evolution. I will NEVER purchase another Foscam product.
Items to note: the IR lights glow red in the dark, which can be annoying. There are lights on the back that blink to indicate power on and connection status that can also be annoying when the room is dark. The motor that controls the pan/tilt function of the camera is somewhat noisy, but it doesn't seem to bother our daughter and doesn't wake her if she is sleeping.
I wasn't able to find a free app for iphone that worked well - they all seemed to have limited functionality and were somewhat buggy. I ended up purchasing the "FoscamPro" app for $5 and that works very well.
I see this particular model working better as a remote security camera than as a child monitor, but it works well for the price point.
Really excellent product for such a reasonable price!
When you are on the same network it works pretty good. I run it at the highest resolution at 4MB and it runs perfectly smooth. The second you leave your home network the quality is sub par. My cell gets great signal and LTE runs super fast, but I have to put the quality slider at 50% quality just to get a OK stuttering picture. I then also went to another home where the wifi is super strong with a super fast connection. Still had to use 50% quality settings.
Also, once set up, my camera did not stop the motion alarm feature, swamping my email inbox with pictures. This continued, though I had the feature turned off in the settings.
The camera comes with a service support code, which allows you to contact Foscam's service for free. After waiting in line for over an hour I gave up.
