Flexible, but not for outside!
I purchased this cam to monitor security on a jobsite. It was going to be placed indoors pointing out a window. The first page of the manual warns against direct exposure of the sensors to sunlight. Since the window faces east and would get direct sun hits in the morning, this cam was not suitable for the application. I ended up using this for another application and purchased the axis 221 instead (IT has auto-iris and ifrared). The setup on this cam is easy if you are network saavy, I did not even use the axis software to set it up (of course you need to use a wired connection for initial setup). Thereafter the wireless mode was used. Connection seems to be consistent in wireless mode. I would think the megapixel version of this cam (207mw) would be at this price point soon and render this cam obsolete. Make sure you read the fine print though, 30fps capture on this cam at 640x480, only 15fps on 207mw at full resolution (albeit 1024x768 I think). Also load cam station one software for free from axis website (limitation 1 cam). Overall a good cam, just expected a better price point for what you get. A better option might be the vivotek 7138 or 7139
