Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week
- Price - Functionality for that price - Excellent IR! - Ease of use / installation - Compatible with Synology NAS (select Foscam)
- Was delivered with US powerplug?! - No clear links to firmware or website from software (nu check for update function) - Motion detection only useful in (light) controlled environments - Slow image (moving people hard to identify) on 640x480
It seems this is a Foscam clone, however, you can't be sure unless you figure out whether you bricked your cam after a firmware upgrade attempt (haven't tried it for that reason). References to firmware upgrades are not to be found on a supported location. Only forums mention possible locations. Risk.
If you there is a lot of fluctuation in the light (sun/clouds), motion detection is a disaster. Even with the setting set to 1.
Motion is not working for this camera. Moving people are hard to identify. It's like playing a 1st-person-shooter on a 100ms screen.
The tilt/pan function, and having WiFi is actually quite impressive for this price! And the IR is excellent! I can't see a thing walking around my house at night, this thing sees it all.
A nice gadget to play around with. If you need a real serious security solution: spend more.
