Cheap PTZ camera – Standalone IP Wireless WIFI/LAN Camera with Night Vision and Pan/Tilt Motors Reviews

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

Pros:
This is actually a Foscam FI-8908W camera. It is bang for buck for a PTZ camera (well technically no zoom so PT). It has M-Jpeg output so it is easily integrated into various applications and control systems.
Cons:
Low Resolution. Mounting bracket is this swivel piece of **.Would be better if you could mount the base directly to the ceiling. If integrating it into a system the protocol is a bit wierd. Has commands to start moving in the direction (up, down, left, right) and requires a stop command as well.
Other:
Requires firmware update to get preset functionality. Integrated it into my Control4 system and am extremely happy with the solution.
Bottomline:
Its a cheap pan tilt camera. Go buy one.
