Keep an Eye on Your Pets
Always feel close to your pets, whether at work or on vacation. Did the walker show up as promised? Is the dog sleeping on the sofa? Is the cat scratching your new leather chair? You'll know instantly with the Panasonic PetCam.

See There When You Can't Be There
Place this plug-and-play camera in your home, office, vacation home, or almost anywhere else you'd like to keep an eye on things, with no PC required at the location. The camera can be viewed and controlled from a standard Web browser, video display, or even a compatible cell phone or PDA, with no additional software required. All of the other required software, including control software (TCP/UDP) and e-mail software (SMTP), is already inside the camera.

Control the Camera Remotely
Using a standard Web browser, video display, or even a compatible cell phone or PDA, you can control the movement of the camera. There is Pan (left & right) movement and Tilt (up & down) movement available. You can also assign a "Home Position" that allows you to return the camera to a pre-designated shooting position. Up to eight shooting positions can be registered in advance, so you can aim the camera exactly where you want it. You can also click on the part of the image you want to see, and automatically bring that part to the center of the screen.

When You Need a Little Privacy
With the built-in Privacy mode, your privacy is protected by simply pressing a button. An indicator on the front of the camera turns red, and you know at a glance that the camera is now only accessible by you. The camera can also be set up to show a green light when the camera is being accessed.

Sensor Recording and Email Alerts
With the built-in heat sensor, the camera can be set to record and/or notify you by email when someone enters the room. It can even automatically move to a preset location when triggered, just in case someone was viewing a different part of the room.

Record Only What You Want to Record
The camera can be set to automatically record video at certain times and certain speeds. In addition, with optional, external sensors attached to the camera, it's possible for the camera to email or record when triggered by motion, sound, light, timer, or even a push button. These convenient functions eliminate your need to constantly check the image.

Create Your Own Free Web Address
The free Viewnetcam service allows you to create a personal Web address (e.g. http://bob.viewnetcam.com) so you can view your camera's live images on the Internet. Access your Panasonic Network Camera live from virtually any Internet connection point around the world! Your Web browser is the only software you'll need. Here's how the camera and service works: Special software embedded within your Panasonic Network Camera gives your camera the ability to locate your unique Internet address. No matter what kind of Internet connection you have or which Internet provider you use, the Viewnetcam.com service will keep your camera's Internet address permanent.

First, let me compliment Panasonic on its customer support. It may take a few minutes to get through, but they do know what they are doing. I needed them twice during setup and they came through both times.

Pros: This is a decent camera at a great price; decent low light performance; relatively easy setup; free web access hosted by Panasonic; compatible with any cell phone with a web browser (pics only); motion sensor; reliable.

Cons: slow shutter speed (anything moving is blurry) and really does not do 30 FPS as advertised.

Overall - recommended as a reasonable cost home monitoring system.

Doesn't have as good of optics as a high-end surveillance camera ($$$$), but is truly amazing for the price. I was burgled 5 years ago and haven't been comfortable since then about what I'd find when I got home. Now, while I'm at work, I just leave a browser window open to this camera, which delivers great audio as well as a pretty darn good picture, and I'm now confident nothing ugly is happening while I'm away! The ability to pan across the room is really nice. The ONLY reason I'm only giving 4 stars is that it could yield a better image, but then again I bet the images would be good enough to be able to prosecute some loser that's preying on my home. For the price I HIGHLY recommend!

Although it works better than expected for the price, it doesn't always work.

Pros:
* The image is relatively clear, even in 640x480 mode, and although moving images are a bit blurry, it is easy to see what is going on remotely over a 500kpbs upload connection and a 1.6 mbps download connection. Accessing it locally gives a much better image.
* Works surprisingly well on an Apple iPhone!

Cons:
* It may be an AT&T DSL limitation, but every 3 days or so, it stops transmitting images, and I have have to power off/on the DSL modem and router. This is very inconvenient, as I used it to monitor a 2nd apartment, which I only visit once a week.
* A minor issue is when I disconnected the camera to move it to another location in the room, I had to reset the camera to get it to work.
* About 80% of the time, the audio/photo/full screen toolbar does not appear, so I can't hear anything. Refreshing the page a few times solves the problem. (I'm running the latest version of Internet Explorer on Windows XP with all the updates.)
* The login process is not secure, so a hacker could easily access the camera.

Overall, not too bad, but it would be a lot better if it worked 24x7.

I purchased this camera after buying the much more expensive HCM311A which has two way audio. My plan was to use the cameras to keep an eye on our little guy and the nanny (who knows about the cameras). The C111A provides all the functionality of the 311A at just over half the price. The setup of the cameras was simple if your router does UPnP. The port forwarding and the pseudo static ip assignment worked like a charm.

After 15 minutes work I was able to access both cameras from a single web page from work. The audio is Great and if you turn the gain up all the way, it's like having the baby monitor at work with you. I do computer stuff for a living so your mileage on configuration may vary. I do have two d-link wireless DCS-G900 ip cameras as well (i couldn't pass up the price $75). Their setup was much more complicated and the UPnP implementation was flawed so I had to do the port forwarding myself.

I'm considering ebaying the two d-links and getting a couple of C111As to replace them.

I just wanted to add one bit of information that folks may find useful with regard to this network camera (and the wireless version BL-C131A). I agree with the majority of other reviews here that for the price, this is a great network camera, and the Panasonic customer service is terrific! Once set up, the camera has stayed reliably up and running *as long as you do NOT activate the privacy mode*. This may be an issue with my particular router/ISP (I am on AT&T DSL with a 2Wire brand router), but I find that whenever I activate privacy mode for more than a few minutes, it seems to cause my network to hang up and I can only clear it by resetting the router. This is the only reason I give the product 4 stars instead of 5, otherwise I love this camera for the price. Hopefully Panasonic will fix the lock-up problem in a future firmware update.

I've wanted a network controllable pan/tilt/zoom netcam for a long time, but until recently they have been prohibitively priced. This unit works wonderfully and is very stable/reliable.

Pros: great feature package, robust
Cons: Firefox can't use the zoom via mouse wheel or get audio working, at least not easily.

I own two of the older model 311's and have recently installed one of these 111's in my house. the admin menu for this camera has more options then the 311's, which are nice. The sound feature works in Firefox, while the 311's don't. The quality of the images don't seem quite as sharp as the 311, but it's still ok for home surveillance. The 111 does MPEG video, which is better then the 311 options and means that the recorded images are very portable and readable by others. I've owned both Axis and Toshiba network cameras in the past and the Panasonic line is far better on numerous counts. The C111 Panasonic is a great choice for those looking for 1-way audio, Pan-Tilt and good recording software in the box. -Highly Recommended!
