Ease of Use

There was a problem in fixing it properly and maintaining connectivity. Poor guidance in the product guide. Sought tech support but it still did not work. I have asked for replacement. If I get a good replacement, it would be worth the spend.

Very good picture quality

by Bart on 1/22/2010

This wireless camera has a very clear picture and good sound. I can hear my dogs barking on the front porch-just wish I could talk back to them to hush them up. The motion detection also works very well although you may have to make adjustments for the wind blowing trees etc. I have this camera outside now but I don't believe it is meant for outdoor use. The setup went easier than other cameras I have tried. The only downside is the slow transmission rate but I will see if that can be adjusted.

The best Camera for everything!!

by Vance03 on 2/20/2010

I never tried to use a wireless network camera before and now that I did...I can't believe I waited this long. I needed one to keep an eye on my teen daughter after school. It was easy to set up and I could see everything. I was able to set it up to record for specific times and have it downloaded to my computer via the network. I could also sign in the website and periodically check in on her. The audio was good also. The software that come with it is kind of sluggish but I didnt need it. You can playback all recordings with windows media player. It also has motion detection recording so that you dont have to use a lot of hard drive space if no activity is going on. I recommend anyone to get this camera because even in low lighting, it is great! A+

Product Overview

The Wireless-N Internet Home Monitoring Camera is designed to send live video to your home computers, or through the Internet to a web browser or smartphone anywhere in the world! This compact, self-contained unit lets you keep track of your home, your kids, your workplace -- whatever's important to you.

A Camera That Stands Alone
Unlike standard "web cams" that require an attached PC, the Internet Home Monitoring Camera contains its own web server, so it can connect directly to a network, over either Wireless-N or wired Ethernet. High-quality, high-framerate video compression creates a sharp, up to 640x480, video stream. View the real-time feed on your networked computers at home, on the Web, or on your web or RTSP-enabled smartphone when you're on the go.

Greater Security at a Glance
Perfect for keeping an eye on family, property, or anything important to you. The wireless connectivity and compact design makes for easy placement (mounted on a wall, or use the included desktop stand), so you can enjoy the peace of mind of reliable vigilance.

Real-Time Security
In Security Mode, the camera sends an email with a short video attached to up to three recipients whenever it detects motion in its field of view. You can then log onto the live video stream if the situation warrants. Use the included Viewer & Recorder utility to record the audio/video stream from multiple cameras to your local hard drive or shared network drive, “live,” or on a predetermined schedule. The camera can also record directly to a compatible NAS device.

Choose Your Audience
You can keep your video stream secure and private within your home network, or share it by creating password-protected accounts. Or simply stream your broadcast to the web for the world to see.
