  • Good camera for the price

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Infrared LEDs for night vision
    Controllable over the net
    Motion sensor
    Alerts to mobile, email, or FTP
    Very configurable
    Smartphone apps
    Speaker and microphone

    Cons:

    I found the camera setup for the PC absolutely useless. It couldn't find the camera at all, even though I could identify the camera in my router and ping it successfully. There was no way to add the cameras IP address manually into the setup. I had to download the android app (which worked effortlessly), allowing me to configure the wireless.

    The full PC software suite wouldn't even install on Windows 7. It appears to be some kind of permissions problem, as the installer couldn't copy files into the Windows System directory (even when run as administrator).

    OtherThoughts:

    Once connected, the camera works well through the web interface. I even got it hooked up through the net with no-ip.com (meaning I can access it remotely from work or while on holiday).

    Bottomline:

    Despite the inability to setup the camera via Windows, it is well worth the money. One setup, it worked easily. The web interface is easy to use, and cross-browser compatible.
