Great purchase – Standalone IP Wireless WIFI/LAN Camera with Night Vision and Pan/Tilt Motors Reviews

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

Pros:
Definitely easy to use (but I work daily with Wifi)
Great quality image, even in total dark using embedded IR leds.
Good focus range, it catches a face since the stairway till looking into the camera.
FTP upload works fine
Motion detection and its scheduler is really perfect!
Motor is silent, you don't even know while it is rotating...
Cons:
The only con is the front blinking led, definitely too bright, that makes the camera difficult to hide. I solved with a piece of black tape in front of the led.
You have to verify the speed of your ISP SMTP server if you want both to eMail you on motion detection and to start ftp upload sequence. On motion detection, the camera will complete eMail sending before starting ftp upload. As an eMail with attachment can last some seconds, you will lose some useful snapshot during this period. I now use FTP only.
Other:
Right after my purchase, the white model appeared on DX. If I knew it, I'd prefer the white as the camera is on top of a white forniture.
Bottomline:
I made a port Nat from my ADSL router to the camera, so I can monitor my house from my office.
