Absolutely blown away by the quality of this camera. The HD picture is crystal clear and has great color. The night vision was superb as well, but as I learned the hard way IR Night Vision lights cannot pass through glass. I installed this security camera inside my sliding glass door frame (upside down at the top), but the IR lights reflected off of the glass doors. I turned off the camera's IR night vision altogether (which was a nice ability), and got a "Heath HZ-4150-BK Zenith" Motion-Activated porch light instead. Now whenever someone walks on (or even close to) to my back porch at night, the motion light pops on and this camera can instantly see and capture them in real time (and in COLOR as opposed to IR"s black and white night vision, so I actually like it better this way).

PROS:
- FTP capable, so it can upload via your wireless network to a PC or laptop.
- SD Card storage if you prefer.
- Motion works great, and you can select any area in the camera's view to "opt out" of the sensor.
- Privacy view (so if your neighbor's window is in view you can black it out, so it won't record that area)
- Pans and Tilts amazingly well, including from my iPhone by simply "swiping" left/right/up/down. The nice thing about the camera being pointed at my back porch is, I can remotely view it from my iPhone, but then "pan" the camera completely around to peer into my house if I want as well. Then when I am done I just pan back to the porch.
- iPhone app works perfectly, and I can view it without any choppiness from anywhere.
- Remote PC viewing is identical quality to local PC viewing (uses the same app)
- You can schedule the camera to record and/or detect motion 24/7, or only certain days and times if you want.

Ok so I was hesistant to purchase this camera at first due to the popularity of other IP Cameras like DropCam and the Samsung HD, and due to the slightly larger size, but this camera is FANTASTIC! This review will share our thoughts abut the Foscam F19826P (the P2P for $199). It took a few minutes to set it up the way we want it, but the features were great and there are many options available to customize for however you want to use it. Out of the box, you can literally just plug the camera in, connect via ethernet or wifi, scan the QR Code on the bottom of the camera, and login. Immediately, the app connected to the camera and the 960P video quality was amazing. FAR FAR FAR superior to both the DropCam Pro and the Samsung HD (yes, we actually ordered those first and sent them back cause they were medicore/crappy at best). Even the 720P video quality is heads-and-shoulders better than either of the other two competitors. The user can select their frame rate, their resolution (960P, 720P, VGA 640x480, VGA 640x360, QVGA 320x240, and QVGA 320x180), their preferred bit rate, stream type (HD Mode, Equilibrium, Smooth-Mode, or User Defined. The camera also offers a concurrent sub-stream that also has options that can be selected.

We LOVE that we have so many recording options without having to pay a monthly fee to some company just to see our videos. We dropped in a 32Gb MicroSD card and we are golden. This camera also allows you to record locally on PC/Mac (havent tested linux yet), and also has the ability to record to FTP. Bonus! The camera also offers PPOE, DDNS, UPnP, customizable port settings, preferred SMTP mail settings, and more. We didn't use most of these features, but it is good to know they are already in the camera if we ever needed them.

Just received the camera this week and set it up yesterday. I am using Blue Iris software to access my security cameras and used the IP Camera search tool on the provided CD to identify the IP address and port. Everything is working as expected for a camera in this price range...good but not perfect. Had one minor issue as I could not get the secure https port to detect in Blue Iris...however...did not spend much time troubleshooting as all my other cameras in Blue Iris use http ports.

I went through several different cameras before finally deciding that this one had all the features and “easy” functionality that I required. So I decided to buy 2 more of the eventual 6 I planned to install. Sadly, I did not have time to install the second two cameras until well after the return policy had expired. I say sadly as the second two cameras I received are a different version of the same camera! The differences are serious enough that they should have different model #’s in my book, thus my Buyer Beware review title!

The first one I received was a Version 2 and the second 2 were version 1’s. And based on the ancient firmware in the second 2 cams (one needed 3 rounds of firmware upgrades to catch up!) these were also probably repacks of some type and not even new merchandise… I would totally dog this review with one star for the Foscam rip-off swap out, but I was an idiot and didn’t check the boxes of the second two cameras when I received them, so I am accepting the blame… But be warned!

The Version 2 cam has MUCH newer firmware available (and is thus, in theory, safer.) It also has additional features from the Version 1 cams. I don’t know all of them, but the 2 main ones that I am REALLY missing is that the V2 can send push alerts to your iPhone via the Foscam program if you have it set up for motion or sound detection alarms. The V1’s don’t support motion phone push alerts (although you can email yourself an alert) and the V1’s also don’t support audio alerts (alarms) at all! [I would have returned the V1’s immediately if I had known...]

Interestingly, however, the V1 cams have a better picture and have MUCH better night vision than the V2 does.
