Overall i'm pleased, and it only took me a few hours to get them up and working the way i wanted. Video quality is fantastic. Just has to work and be understandable.

Works great clear snapshot s and video come with mounting bracket to. My favorite is tinycam. It's an indoor cam but i use it outdoors in a covered area.

You'll be prompted to enter a new username/password. I also use dynamic dns on my router that provides the name for me to connect to outside my home.



Cons

I have a few 'dashboard' cameras that do 720p, and all of them have better quality than this foscam. This is not clearly explained but there is a cryptic error. The iphone app works for viewing, but your out of luck if want to use the recording functi...  Read More

    Basic networking knowledge is required (setting static ip's, port forwarding, wi-fi set up if you don't have wps).

    The foscam android app, as if this writing, is utterly useless; would not connect no matter what i did.

    Night vision is pretty amazing.

    I haven't gotten into recording, motion detection, or any of the other functions.

    The mounting kit that comes with it should be sufficient, but i did have to buy an electrical extension for it, as the provided cord is short.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    But to use it on smartphones or outside the network is a complete pain.
