not worth the price

 

The picture is pretty clear, and the install was not that hard

I have three of these installed at a customers location. They are constantly having to be power cycled. What is the deal with this??? For the amount of money you spend you would think they could at least just stay running........ Not impressed, and...

How to Un-Brick after upgrading firmware

 

Here's how I brought my unit back to life - step by step: 1) Download 3.0.2.2899 firmware and have it available on your computer. 2) Reset camera defaults by holding reset button in for 15 seconds while camera power is on. Release button and unplug...

Great NewEgg deal with lots of features for an IP controllable PT Camera. ABS customer support responded to my email request for help after the firmware upgrade made the unit unresponsive. Although their response wasn't perfectly accurate, it did...

Be careful

 

Great price and capabilities

Firmware update defective issue and will no longer work

stuck either way

 

If you DON'T do the firmware update, you won't be able to take advantage of the stated improvements in daylight/night time handling and better web software. If you DO do the update, there's no guarantee you'll ever be able to use the camera again.

When these work, they work fine. Noisy but fine

When I received the three cameras I ordered, they didn't have the latest firmware. The manufacturer mentions IN THESE FEEDBACKS that you should update the firmware. I got the latest firmware from their site and updated two out of three cameras. Neither...

Upgrade the firmware and this rocks.

 

Inexpensive and great picture. Software is now pretty darn good. IR night vision is exceptional for indoor use, and auto levels can be set manually

Getting to know the software took some playing around. The manual is large and I still havent made it all the way through
