207MW

 

Update the firmware first and read the manual if you are having connection problems. It is all in the manual. I use a Netopia 2247-ent router and encountered no issues. As I mentioned - read the manual - it is not a simple PnP. I also have a high level...

This is a superb indoor surveillance camera for the price. Video is excellent. Installation takes a bit of time. I use Synology Surveillance Station for data collection and it is best to use IE for configuring the camera. It also takes some time to set...

Expensive but it works

Pro-quality Camera

 

This is a serious camera for those who have serious needs. Plain and simple - it just works. It plays well with Apple networks components and Macs, as well as with Firefox for Windows. It is highly configurable via a web browser (is also easy to set up...

Excellent image quality, setup was simple on an Apple AirPort network, does not require IE to view remotely, solid construction, decent low-light quality, has not dropped off wireless network since first set up almost a year ago

A bit pricey

I didn't give the software (Nero) a check as I'm running Ubuntu on my machine. Not sure what to say about it.

camera resolution is very good

Requires non-SSL SMTP server for email alerts

WONT FIND MY NETWORK

 

ive sent emails to tech support to no avail, so im throwing my arms up at this cam... just kills me the lack of support for a $380 security cam..

this cam wont find any network

this cam wont find my network on my router no matter what type of cat 5 i use, and i cant reset this cam to its default settings like the manual states, so i cant see it on my network and my router cant see it ; what makes this worse is that i have...

Nice wireless camera

 

I'm going to be buying more of these.

This is a great camera - if you're looking for a surveillance camera, I'd highly recommend it. The wireless connection is rock solid; it's been connected for weeks without a problem. Many options to choose from and the MPEG-4 is true MPEG-4...

None that I have encountered so far

Great camera....... if it worked correctly

 

The camera worked well enough and was easy to configure. All was going well until the wireless portion. The camera could not see my wireless network but could see 2 other SSID's from next door neighbors. I just bought a brand new Linksyys WRT160N...

Decent resolution, small design many configuration options

802.11g didn't work as advertised

Consumer review by:

Very Nice...

 

I plan to buy some more of these!

I plugged this camera into my router and within seconds it was accessible through the network. There are tons of setting variations, and I haven't gone through them all yet. I was impressed when I was viewing the camera in my browser, I unplugged the...

Recording software is my next buy and that's expensive

Consumer review by:

Good for the price

 

Default router IP on the setup is 192.1.1.1. Watch out for that. I overlooked it several times before I noticed it. Aside from that, have had zero issues.

Easy setup, good image quality, decent frame rate, adjustable focus, and excellent wireless range.

None so far. Was well worth the price paid.

Nice camera BUT...

 

Lots of wasted time to get a functional camera. All cameras had the latest firmware. All could not be factory reset. All were confirmed dead. I don't know what to say other than next time I'll probably shop around for an alternative network camera.

FIRST.. this is a nice camera. Functionality is good, options are great, size is great. I have an existing 207w camera on our network as well as 3 206 cameras. All work great. Firmware is the latest in our existing 207w. My issue comes with the fact...

First camera (latest firmware) stopped responding during the configuration of it. Call to Axis confirmed it was dead, could not access it or reset it. Replaced by Newegg (who was great to deal with in this matter). Second camera, started configuring...

Great Security Cam

 

This is a great security cam. I set it up 30 feet away from wireless AP and never got disconnected. Very configurable, can be setup to send you the motion detect video or notification via e-mail or store it on hard drive. Motion detection can also be...

None at this moment

Product Specifications
