There was a quality control problem, which was somewhat easily solved. Although, it's a "gotcha" and would most likely drive a less experienced person crazy (I'll go over that further down in this review). The physical installation went well, but again, there is one small design flaw that was annoying, and which added maybe ten minutes to the process. However, over all, it was pretty easy and painless.
The camera was shipped and delivered on time. Out of the box, it was in good shape, and all components were there. I was pleased to see a 6dbi antenna, instead of the usual 3dbi that come with these low-end cameras. I did not have to do any readjustments or tweaks to the optics. Picture is Chrystal clear, and the 4x mechanical zoom is sweet. The ptz movement is nice and smooth, too.
Initial configuration of the camera is exactly like all the other cameras in this class (Hootoo, and other brands). Connect it directly to the router, via ethernet, find it's ip, connect and play with it to make sure everything works, and then set the admin password, ssid, wireless security configuration, etc. Then, disconnect the ethernet and test for wireless connectivity. This all went fast and easy.
I then took it out to the location and mounted it. It is a nice compact unit, but it is difficult to get a screwdriver to the screws. I had to remove the camera and housing from the base so that I could get a screwdriver to the mounting screws.Read more ›

Unboxing was easy. You must unscrew the dome, counter-clockwise, to get the foam out of the dome. It was EXTREMELY difficult to unscrew the dome. I wish I would have read that on here. Putting it back on was easier as I took a dot of dish soap and put it on my finger and went around the threads on the dome and was careful not to cross thread it when I put it back on. Just be aware that the dome may be VERY difficult to get off.
The software that came on the CD was not useful to me. I used the Ethernet cable and plugged it into my router so it would get an IP address. I went into the router and determined what the IP address was under DHCP client list. It was easy to identify as the hostname appeared as ipcam or something like that. I then hit the IP address with my browser (Chrome), logged in as admin and a blank password, and set the network settings. I set my camera to have a static IP, otherwise I'd be playing guess the IP every time my router reboots. Then I went into the wireless settings, clicked scan, clicked scan again, selected my wireless network, set the security settings (look on your wireless router security settings for the correct encryption settings), put in the wireless password (I really hope you have one), saved the settings, put some user accounts on it, and unplugged the Ethernet cable. I then tested it to make sure it worked on the wireless. I then mounted it to a wall, outside.
You will need to drill a 7/8" hole, possibly 1", to stick the cables through.Read more ›
I mounted it outdoors under a short awning which provides it some protection from the elements, but it has functioned well in windy, rainy conditions. Our temperatures don't normally drop below 32°F so I can't speak to performance in freezing temperatures.
The web interface is a bit clunky, but does the job.
The image quality is decent, just be aware that you'll see some high contrast between brightly lit and shaded areas. You're at the mercy of the camera's aperture control for deciding which area to set the exposure for.
The motion detection with email notifications is a nice feature. It emails a sequence of images to one or multiple email addresses.
You can adjust the sensitivity of the motion detection so you don't keep getting emails on windy days when the trees and bushes are getting blown around.
If you're not using a PC with IE, you won't be able to hear any sound. I use a mac so I can't speak to the quality of the audio.
I opted to wire the camera to my home network router using an ethernet cable for better performance and have not tried connecting to it wirelessly.
If you're looking for a basic outdoor security cam that can pan, zoom, tilt, and is reasonably priced, this camera should suit you fine.

This is a 5 star camera except for two issues. First, it would be nice to have IR capability for night time viewing. HooToo charges extra for that. Read morePublished on March 29, 2013 by D. Thompson
