Yes, it does everything it says. You can do an internet search for great independent tutorials. If you don't have a static IP address, you can get a free account with tzodotcom that will take care of this. I'm not sure about the 1 lux low-light feature, though. There is a single street light in my driveway, and the camera can't see my vehicles at night. Maybe another light would help. Daytime is GREAT, however! Great little gadget for monitoring your home when you're away! Motion detection will send an email with a 5-second clip.

Great camera

on 1/15/2010

Easy to set up. Got all information I needed from the pdf to open/redirect through ports. Works great. Sound sometimes intermittent even on a LAN. The ptz function sometimes lag when on an outside wifi connection. Has threads for standard camera stand for temporary use and key holes for more permanent wall mount. A camera that can easily be moved around for different uses. Had relatives overseas try it out without any problems. Read More

Product Overview

Cisco® Small Business Video Surveillance products provide customizable ways for small business owners to monitor and protect their companies. These high-quality solutions can be optimized for many different applications and sites.

The Cisco WVC210 Wireless-G PTZ Internet Video Camera sends live video through the Internet to a web browser anywhere in the world. The camera supports dual codecs (MPEG-4 and MJPEG), which can be used simultaneously. MPEG-4 gives efficient bandwidth consumption with good-quality compression and is optimal for real-time viewing of video. MJPEG gives optimal video quality, making it ideal for large-volume storage to a network attached storage (NAS) device.

The Cisco WVC210's audio capabilities include two-way audio, an embedded microphone, external speaker and microphone ports, and voice compression. With extensive support for features such as IP multicast, Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP), Real Time Protocol (RTP), and 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), it enables video to be viewed from multiple endpoints and client applications, such as 3G phones and QuickTime clients on PCs or Wi-Fi phones. Network protocols such as 802.1p priority, 802.1Q VLANs, and Dynamic DNS (DDNS) are also supported. The WVC210 can also be managed securely using HTTPS.

The pan/tilt and digital zoom functions allow you to remotely control the camera movement and focus, giving you maximum remote flexibility. Up to 10 simultaneous unicast users can access the camera at any time. Software is included for monitoring multiple cameras and recording to your hard drive, with advanced search by time and date. Recording can be set up to start by motion trigger or by manual or scheduled recording. Playback is available on Windows Media Player, with no need for a proprietary player.

You can also enable security mode, which tells the camera to send a message with a short attached video to up to three email addresses whenever it detects motion in its field of view. You can then log in to the live video stream if the situation warrants. Wireless security features include Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP), Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA), and WPA2.
