Excellent price, hard to set up – VSTARCAM F6836W PTZ Indoor Wireless IP Network Camera with 10-LED IR Night Vision - White Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- Good image - Good pan/tilt, a little slow maybe - Has IR-Cut (better day colors) but is not noisy when switching (good for baby rooms) - Microphone is ok for monitoring baby - WiFi and LAN work fine - You can turn off the green network indicator LED - Very good price
Cons:
- You need to use windows to set it up, or you have to know that the LAN IP address is set to 192.168.1.126 (I think, not sure any more). It would be much nicer if it defaults to using DHCP. - The free VsCam iPhone app from vstarcam doesn't detect the camera. I had to use the Foscam 890x profile on the Live Cams Pro app to make everything work.
Other:
- No built-in speaker although you can attach an external one and actually I never really use it on my other cams - This one comes with a UK power supply :-/
Bottomline:
Great price for a wifi baby monitor.
