Network setup is a real pain in the neck with this camera. I've installed dozens of IP cams from 5 different brands before and none gave me so many problems just trying to get it to show up on the network. First of all, the software works when it feels like it, depending on what you're running on your Windows PC. Second, to upgrade firmware was a 4 or 5 step process, because you can't upgrade to the latest until you've upgraded one version up and then another version up, and then the latest. To top it off, cables coming out of this thing are thicker and more numerous than a plate of fettucine. For a wireless outdoor cam, that's ridiculous. And last but not least, cables, including power cable, are so short, you might as well get no cable at all. Next time Foscam, why don't you make them even shorter, like 2 inches long while you're at it.

Product Overview

The Foscam FI9805P is one of Foscam's latest HD 960p, 1.3 Megapixel Outdoor IP cameras. The plug and play feature allows the ability to connect via smartphone by simply scanning the QR code on the underside of the camera. Bypassing the need to access your router and setup port forwarding, the FI9805P can be set up effortlessly by anyone, even those with very little IT experience. The FI9805P improves on the FI8905W in the following respects:

- 60 second easy setup with QR code scan via Smartphone
- Cloud enabled camera for live viewing and storage via FoscamCloud (free trial included)
- Improved low light & night vision performance of 30 meters
- Wider lens of 4mm, giving a 70° viewing angle (wider than the FI8904W)
- Updated web interface with all features and options included in MJPEG cameras like the FI8905W/FI8904W
- Enhanced MAC as well as Safari/Chrome/Firefox compatibility Multidevice viewing compatible with FI8905W/FI8904W and all other Foscam MJPEG cameras
- Free bounded DDNS service via MyFoscam.org

The Foscam FI9805P Outdoor Megapixel IP Camera adopts a 960p HD video quality (1280 x 960) as well as a high performance media processor, single SOC chip (built-in ARM+DSP) and high speed video protocol processor. As a result, it is capable of H.264 video compression allowing for extremely smooth video transmission with 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 manual video recording.

It is smartphone compatible (Iphone, Android & Blackberry) as well as viewable over the internet network using the standard Safari browser (no app necessary). The camera functions well as part of a home or office security system with remote internet monitoring ability.
