This is the third Hootoo PTZ camera I have bought and installed in my home security system. I also have a Foscam, and an Agasio. I like all three brands. The Foscam does seem to work best, but the Hootoo cameras are right there too, and seem to give the most bang for the buck. I can highly recommend this Hootoo camera to anyone thinking of getting a PTZ, pan-&-tilt, wireless ip camera.

Configuring any of these little ip cameras can be a challenge to the novice. Instructions that come with them are usually written by people who do not clearly understand English. Thus, can be pretty confusing. They also depend on the user having working knowledge of wireless and wired networking. In addition to configuring the camera, the installer should know how to configure the router for reserved ip addresses on your local home network, port assignment and forwarding, and DDNS to view the cameras from phones and other remote/off-site computers.

Most routers come with pre-set DDNS providers, which you will need to establish accounts with (either paid, or free) prior to configuring your router, if you intend to be viewing from remote locations outside you home network.. The cameras can also be setup independent of the router for DDNS. However, the DDNS providers the cameras are pre-set to were all in China. I would think that users in other countries might have problems with that, because when they view their home networks remotely while traveling, they would be viewing them via China. Personally, I wanted a provider with servers on my home soil and closer to home. So, I chose to use one of the DNS providers pre-set in my router, which was in my home country (the U.S.).

The product comes with everything stated - IP camera, network cable, antenna, CD, user's manual, power adapter and some drywall screws.

The camera had some thin strings of glue on it - apparently from the packaging. I couldn't easily remove the glue, so I left it on the camera. There wasn't any glue on the lens. The camera is about the size of a can of coca cola - so it was a little bigger than I expected.

Setup was nice and easy. I opened the CD and copied everything to my computer (MacBook Pro). I then connected the camera (with the network cable) to my router, and started the camera software. It easily found the camera, and after a few clicks, I was able to make the changes to the settings to match my environment. I then disconnected it from the router and placed it on my desk. I was able to set the camera to do motion detection and send copies via FTP of the pictures to my computer. The software is easy enough to figure out so that I didn't even have to read the manual.

The pictures are nice and fairly clear for what you would expect out of VGA (640x480). The web interface is nice, and the camera scrolls up/down and left/right.

My concerns: On motion-detection, the camera sometimes detects motion and sometimes it does not. However, this may be due to the sensitivity setting that I chose (5 out of 10). And, I have the camera pointed outside, so if the wind blows the tree limbs, it will take pictures. And, one out of every 50 images, the image will be a little messed up - where the bottom 1/3 of the picture is blank.

I could not get my router to properly forward the IP address and port number to the camera, so I couldn't test it to see if I could connect to it outside of my home network.

I recently bought several different brands of wireless IP cameras. I planed to install some for my own home and for my in-law's home. I previously compared Tenvis JPT3815W, EasyN EasyN FS-613A-M136 and HooToo HT-IP206 cameras on amazon.com. IP206 is perfect for garage door opener control after tinkering with camera settings. Excellent for those who forget to close their door or need to open the door remotely for large-item delivery. Caution: Make sure no kids or other people around the door. EasyN and HooToo have much better outbound audio for remote listening. Good for baby monitoring. All have inadequate incoming audio. Listeners next to the camera can hardly understand the words without repeating by the remote person speaking into IP Cam Viewer. Luckily, you can phone in instead of relying on the camera if you want to speak to people next to the camera.
I just got a Hootoo HT-IP210F camera. It is an upgrade from IP206. Slightly more expensive. If you are comfortable playing with your router settings, you can set up these cameras in a few minutes. Since I have done this before, so it is no brainer for me. Hooked it up to my router with RJ45 ethernet cable. Easily found the LAN IP for 210F on my PC (wirelessly linked to the same router) using the finding camera software from Hootoo (other vendor's camera finder software likely works as well). Entered its LAN IP address in my Google Chrome browser and I saw the web control interface and camera view right away. From the interface you can set up WiFi password to link to your router wirelessly without a cable. 210F will reboot. Unplug the RJ45 cable. Surprisingly you won't see your camera using the previous LAN IP. This is because 210F gets a different IP for WiFi connection! Not the same as your wired connection IP.
