I bought this because my boyfriend thinks someone is breaking into our house during the day and we wanted to keep an eye out to see if he was just imagining it or not. This has come in much more handy than just that. We now use it for corrective training of our dogs while we are at work. If they are doing something wrong, I wired into the house surround sound and just tell them know remotely. I would recommend this to anyone. I can't wait to get more for a better view of the entire house.

Love this camera! It's a great value. We're currently using it to monitor our daughter's crib. It's a lot of fun for me to login from work to peak at her. <br/><br/> I have had some issues. The biggest is that my first unit had a defective day/night sensor that resulted in very poor image quality since the IR mode was always active. My first response from support was that it's just the way the camera is. I asked for another opinion, who confirmed the issue. <br/><br/> The setup is a bit cumbersome, but not overly so. The manuals are better than other reviews implied -- you can get them online via the vendor's site to judge for yourself. Contrary to another review I read online, the camera does not loose it's settings after the power goes out. <br/><br/> Pros:<br/> - Great value. A comparable Axis camera would cost double.<br/> - Decent image quality -- better than most, but not quite as good as Axis.<br/> - Sturdy mounting bracket.<br/> - Nightvision works quite well.<br/> - Nice set of options -- albeit cumbersome to use.<br/> <br/><br/> Cons:<br/> - Mandatory authentication to view videos -- have to tell people to enter username and password.<br/> - Limited image adjustment capabilities.<br/> - Some features only available in IE/ActiveX, not in Firefox/Java.<br/> - Hard to access images without the vendor's ActiveX or Java viewers. And why can't I easily grab a single frame from the built-in webserver?!<br/> - Lackluster support team.<br/> - Setup requires networking knowledge.<br/> - Can't manually disable the IR/night mode.<br/> <br/><br/> There are also live cams available on the manufacturer's site, as well as a clickable sample of the camera's UI.
