Nice series of cameras

I have two of the pan and tilt foscams and one of these outdoor cams. They are difficult to get going wireless, at least with my system of 3 routers. Folks with just one wireless router should be having no difficulty getting it to go. I wish the outdoor had pan and tilt but it still works great and the night vision is excellant Read More

I had need of a wireless outdoor security camera, and from the reviews this seemed to fill the bill. Having read the drawbacks (broken English directions, no tech support, wireless difficult to configure), I held my breath and clicked the "buy" button. All the good and bad points reaised in the other reviews were spot on: to the good, the camera seems well-made and had a good picture quality, especially in this price range. To the negative side, the directions are charmingly fractured (there are separate directions for setup from a PC or a Macintosh; only the Mac directions inform you of the all-important password needed for initial login), but I was able to complete the installation right up to the point of switching from wired to wireless operation. Then - nothing. I have been unable to make the wireless communication work, which means I have a nice camera which is useless for my application. If an of you installation veterans have any suggestions, I'm all ears. Read More
