Ease of Use

Works with iPod, too!

by bionicdan on 2/8/2011

This camera was easy to set up and use. It would be a "great" ie "5"-star item if it focused better (automatic or manual) and if it was "weather-proof". Oh, and pan/tilt etc., although optional, would be nice to have already built in to a camera at this price level. As it is, it does a nice monitoring job but is not recommended for low light or extreme environments. As a last feature, power over Ethernet would be nice feature to have in a camera at this price, too. So, overall, okay 4+. But, to get full 5-star ratings, add those features.
