|The Foscam FI9820W Wireless IP Camera is Foscam's first HD 720p Megapixel IP camera. It adopts a high performance media processor and high speed video protocol processor making it capable of H.264 video compression for extremely smooth video transmission, increased FPS and minimal bandwidth consumption. In addition, due to the small file sizes produced by H.264 video compression it has the ability to save tremendous hard drive space when doing video recording. Furthermore, the FI9820W also features a built-in DVR via on-board SD Card slot for direct recording on the camera itself up to 32GB. It is smartphone compatible (Iphone, Android & Blackberry) as well as viewable over the internet network using the standard Safari browser (no app necessary, no sound). The camera functions well as an iPhone baby monitor or as part of a home or office security system with remote internet monitoring ability.|
I am not new to IP cameras. I have several of the old foscams as well as other megapixel cameras, IPS, Axis, etc, This camera is rubbish. In daylight the images are ok, but indoors even with medium light, the picture is poor. This is a known issue with the camera and is addressed in online forums. Audio is poor as well. Whatever you do, DO NOT BUY from Foscam Digital Technologies LLC, aka, foscam.us they are a distributor with horrible customer service. The promised to refund my purchased but then refused one day after I could file a complaint for a refund and while they had my return in hand.
