Why is this important?
If you plan to access the camera remotely, such as from your office at work, you must connect the camera to the internet. Without the proper security, your camera can be accessed by an intruder on the internet.
If you don't expect to use the remote access feature of this camera, you can disregard the remainder of my review.
This camera provides the choice to connect from the web using an unencrypted connection and optionally with an encrypted connection using SSLv3. If you set up the camera using only the unencrypted option, even your login credentials are visible on the internet. With the encryption enabled, your credentials are protected. However, in 2014, a security vulnerability was discovered in SSLv3 that allows an attacker access to information in the encrypted connection. Most major sites have switched from using SSL to TLS, and the latest versions of Firefox will not even connect to sites that use SSLv3. This includes your camera! So, if you set up this camera for your home's security, you may actually negate that security by providing someone with a view into your house!
I contacted Panasonic to find out if they will release a firmware update for the camera to address this issue. As expected, Panasonic has no plans to do so. This diminishes my confidence in Panasonic's products.
This camera is a great choice if it's not connected to the internet. I really like many of the advanced features that it offers and the ability to save images triggered by timers or sensors. If you know how, you can overcome the security problems by connecting to the camera remotely through a VPN. However, if you want to watch the video stream remotely, you're better off choosing a different product.
I have used the camera from work but you will need to test out your work connection as sometimes the ports that are used for the camera are blocked by your companies network team. Being in IT I was able to get around this but it might be an issue for other users. I can view from my phone but it would probably chew up data plan limits if done for a period of time.
I used the camera a lot from work when we were having a basement finished and I had to have the contractors in the house when no one was there. I had the camera pointed at the basement door and when the contractors would come and go I could easily see if they were wandering around the house when they shouldn't have been. The nice feature on this is you can set the camera to record to its own memory, when it detects either sound or movement. I used that for when the contractors were there and later in the day I could see what they were up to in my house. I only have one camera but you can add more around the house. Just remember this model uses ethernet cable only, it is not wireless. Panasonic offers a wireless version but this one is not it. That could limit your ability to put around the house unless your house is cabled or you are using some other device to extend your ethernet connection to where the camera is.
Overall I think the camera itself is very good. Panasonic just needs to improve the setup of the camera to view on-line or it will limit this product to more advanced users. Also, the price is not cheap compared to other products in the same category. I've tried other cameras that were easier to setup but didn't offer same camera quality or ability to pan the camera.
