This is a night vision camera with a reasonable indoor night vision distance. The infrared LEDs are activated during darkness This 'monochromatic' light is interpreted as a black and white image. During daylight there is some color cast caused by a missing infrared filter. The 'annoying' flashing LED can be switched off by software, so this camera can act as a kind of stealth camera. During night, little kids are mesmerized by the slightly visible visual part of the infrared LEDs.
The backlash in the gears and mechanism are causing that the presets are not always accurate. The camera is described as a PTZ, but zoom is not available. The sound quality is not great because it is disrupted by digital noise. In Firefox, the capability of sound is not available. This can be easily avoided by using FLV. The only minor is that no PAN and Tilt controls are available. IExplorer is fully supported, including sound. The supplied Super Client is restricted for one hour of use, but supports full sound.
I am waiting for a firmware update which will support sound in Firefox and other Internet Browsers.
A great camera for night viewing that will send e-mails or FTP images to a server during motion detection. It is easy to configure with the supplied software. It consumes low power so it can run day and night 24/7. It does not require an Ethernet cable (only during setup), wireless is supported.
