Not what I thought I bought. – Outdoor Waterproof 300KP CMOS Wireless WiFi Network Surveillance Camera w/ 22-LED Night Vision Reviews

posted by allies on 07/12/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
I can agree that the case is really good. But there is not much more on good things what I can say about it.
Cons:
For WIFI I thought to buy another antenna in the hope the lag was improving. But when I found out that also LAN had this issue I monitored it for while Outcome is a huge lag what I don't see in any other equipment what is around. Assembly errors and technical enough to also open it and to fix it myself. firmware button is great to click on. but not sure why it is there in the first place.
Other:
Does not work correct with Zoneminder. and generates so much error that I have not added this camera as the log file was bigger then the recording it did. Asked several support question, but the only question I get was if it was working. For a PAN /TILT, the frozen images works indeed.
Bottomline:
It was not what I expected for this price. Cstmr support responded in the same lag as the camera did. There are better camera's around for the same price.
