For a novice user, it's easy to install. Just plug in the camera into your router with the supplied cable. Then use the app to configure the wifi for the camera and done. No need for portforwarding. Scan de QR code on the camera with the mobile app (android and ios) and you can view your camera from anywhere.
The PC application (also available for MAC) has the same functionality, but I find it easier to work with. Camera has a telnet server (admin/admin), with busybox shell. You can look inside the system pretty easy. There's a writable flash chip (~4MB) which still has space for about 3MB. It allows for some simple modding I suppose. Using the SD card you may install more things by using wget. The chip is mips, so more than enough existing compiled software (from routers) out there to use. Mail feature works ok, sends up to 3 pictures at once of a motion alert or any other tampering of the camera. Image quality is allright. Does get blurry when the camera is rotating. The camera logs in with a unique username and password to a internet proxy. With the app you'll be able to see the camera through the proxy. If the people that made the camera want to watch your camera, they could in theory. I blocked the internet for the camera. Motion detection is kind of meh. It does always work when somebody is close to the camera. When someone is a few meters away it doesn't always pick up the motion, even on high sensitivity. Regulary gets triggerd by switching to IR/normal or camera rotation. You need an SD card to be able to save files to an FTP server. The FTP server will be used to back-up all files on the SD card every 30min or so. The SD card will be written to in a raw format. You can't open the files by plugging in the card in your PC. You can download them trough the application though. Video format is HKV which is only playable trough the special video player application on your pc, or on your phone. No support a regular player. SD card works like a ring buffer. If the card is full, the oldest file will be removed. I just wonder how long the SD card will survive this, since some sectors are being used more than others (file location sectors for example). Maximum SD card size is 32GB, if bigger only 32GB will be used. Application links:
Others: http://www.scc21.net/ For about 40 euro, this is a fantastic deal. I couldn't find any cheaper 720p camera.
I do like the fact that you can use your phone to view the camera feed, but I have my doubts about the network security when you allow the camera to connect to the internet.
The manual is in English and (I think) Chinese. The audio quality is pretty bad. The speaker is almost not audible, and the microphone doesn't produce enough volume to hear properly. Furthermore the audio is stuttering. That doesn't matter too much though, I want 720p video, and this camera delivers. With the telnet server I'm definitely going to try and add some features to the camera. Benchmark page: http://goo.gl/eILb5z
