Great cam if you can deal with the technical setup issues and are interested in great video quality and/or night vision. Forget it if you're interested in audio.
1. VIDEO QUALITY - One of the best I've seen for an IP-based camera, especially in this price range.
2. NIGHT VISION - SUPERB! I tried it in a dark room with all lights off and I could see in the room just as if the lights were on (of course everything is in black and white in this case). Blows anything I've tried before out of the water.
1. AUDIO QUALITY
a) I bought this camera for a baby monitor after reading the review of someone else who bought for the same reason and said the audio quality was good. That's not true at all. Maybe they got a superior version of the product, but I doubt it. The audio makes a pretty loud static noise every time the image updates, which for me is just over once per second. It's even more pronounced in wireless mode than in wired mode. I'm sure you can imagine how annoying that could get listening to that repetitive noise all day while the baby sleeps. It's still not bearable, even in wired mode. My guess is that the processor in the device draws too much power/makes too much noise and interferes with the audio recording.
b) When you pan/tilt the camera, it makes a LOT of noise. I could deal with this if it weren't for 1a.
c) I tried the "2 way" audio feature to send audio to the camera, and it sounds really distorted on the other end.
2. UNSIGNED ACTIVEX - In order to use the audio or MJPEG video features you have to use Internet Explorer and you have to install an "Untitled" ActiveX object that is unsigned. Getting this working requires jumping through a few hoops and is not for the technically light hearted. If they'd just pay for a certificate and get their control signed, it would save people a lot of trouble.
3. PAN/TILT CONTROL - Not that great. If you press the button to move the pan/tilt a little bit, it moves just a tiny amount. You have to hold down the button to get it to move any usable distance, and then a delay in the image update makes it hard to time the movements just right. There should be some sort of velocity control for how fast the camera moves.
4. DOCUMENTATION - Not very good, unless you know Chinese. Sentences are not well written, but can be understood with some effort.
5. INSTALL/SETUP - Not very good. The camera comes with some software that's supposed to auto-detect your cameras and let you configure them, but I never got it working. The camera was still accessible via the web interface, however.
I'm most likely going to return the camera and look for something better suited to my needs. If I think of a good reason to have a good quality night vision camera around for the video alone, then I'll keep it.
This camera worked well for me for about 2 years after which it would no longer power up. I bought this camera 5 years ago. If you look on Amazon or use your favorite search engine, you can now find many higher quality cameras (even HD, and even with decent audio) out there for a similar or even lower price, so at this point I'd recommend you pass on this one.
There are a couple if items to note though that bothered me.
1. audio quality.
the 2-way speaker works fine with 1 minor problem, the output volume on the device is too low. Increasing the mic volume on my computer causes too great a distortion in sound for anything to make sense for the listener. There is an RCA jack to plug in some external speakers to fix this problem though.
2. The device will not reconnect to the wireless network if rebooted through the web interface. Unless I've made changes to the wireless setup, anything that causes the device to reboot results in my having to pull the power cable and reconnect. This is also true if I have to power cycle my wireless router. This is a real problem that you should be aware of as updating the firmware is not an option, see next paragraph.
There are 2 types of firmware updates for this camera, one is a "WebUI" update that simply updates the web interface. The second is a device firmware update that the manufacturer simply chooses not to provide.
What's nice about this camera is you can unplug it - bring it to the another conference room and plug it in and it reestablishes itself on the same IP address on the same WiFi connection. This allows us to use the same URL for remote employees to connect to the camera without reconfiguration with each move.
The pan & tilt work well, and remote employees were using the camera to go back and forth to different speakers as well as viewing a white board used in the meetings. Admittedly it's a little unnerving the first time the camera stops on you, but the remote attendees really benefited using this. The image quality is serviceable - I would like it to be a bit better, occasionally we need to move the camera closer to white board images, but for collaboration purposes this works.
We have several people viewing at the same time, with one designated controller. We have a decent network here, so not much problem with the streaming. The image is real time not chopped up like a web cam, so this really helps people keep up with a conversation.
I haven't used the audio portion as we use teleconferencing services.
Bottom line - this little camera is a work horse, and produced some surprising productivity gains.
