BAD customer service

 

i understand that cost control is important in running any kinds of business. at the same time, there needs to be cost set aside to cover defective products and unexpected problems that you may encounter. nickleing and diming royal customers who have...

works well when it works

i've had foscam ip cams for a while. a few months ago, i purchased my 5th one to set it up in one of my kids bedroom as a babycam. i've set them up multiple times for my friends and family, and it was no problem. however the night vision function was...

Good basic camera

 

I purchased this through another company (sorry newegg) for financial reasons but wanted to leave a review here because I shop at new egg fairly regularly + this doesn't have a review. I run a dedicated box for video security with the freeware iSpy...

motorized PTZ capability ; IR ; Wireless & Wired ; Decent length power cable ; Great GUI ; Compatible with iSpy freeware application ; decent mounting bracket with good range of motion

Resolution is dated ; IR doesnt throw very far

Nice...Really Nice

 

FOSCAM FAQ is pretty impressive and they cover just about all of the problems you might encounter. I've been using it to monitor inside & outside activity and it works as expected and I'm still trying to fine tune it to make it better. Note: Tabbing...

Motor is very quiet and the IR works extremely well especially in low light. I bought this combo set because I needed a surveillance camera to work with my Synology NAS system and after previewing several others this particular camera stuck out as the...

The power cord is very short so it will need to be by an electrical outlet or use an extension cord. When setting up your camera with a host name it’s impossible to use your own host name or another “Host” or “Domain” name. You can only use the few...

Nice hardware when it works, flaky software

 

Nice quality for the resolution with and without infrared ; Tech support is good especially considering they are helping from Hong Kong

WebUI is very "young" and somewhat flaky at times ; One of the units failed during upgrading (I had to upgrade to try to get wireless settings to take). Make sure update for firmware takes before running update for UI ; I bought from a Marketplace...

Best Value (if you know what you're doing)

 

Ignore the other review. I have 3 of these now, and have used 1 for over a year. No problems with the device whatsoever. I recommend setting "Save PTZ positions" on in the menu, as it's disabled by default, for some reason. Allows you to save position...

Best Bang for your Buck ; Wireless and Stand-Alone. No PC required ; 2-Way Audio ; Infrared ; Great for Baby Monitor ; Tons of video clients available. I use "tinyCam Monitor" on Android devices, to watch the baby while at work or on travel. There's...

Directions are "iffy ; If you have a basic understanding of networking, you should be fine. WiFi setup consists of plugging directly into a router or computer to initialize, select to your WiFi network, then disconnect and install wherever you want it....

Great Camera; Not good for continuous recording

 

I was looking for a camera that had a continuous recording feature to record what my dogs are doing all day. I have had some neighbors complain about the noise they make and wanted to know if it was true. The camera is very good about sending you...

Great picture, somewhat easy to set up

did not meet my needs

Consumer review by:

ok for monitoring, not recording

 

instructions are minimal! Initial set up is easy but not nothing really there on how to record, how to set up record times, or how to connect remotely.About me... technology savvy

fairly easy for simple use

not clear on how to remote access

Consumer review by:

Good camera for connecting wirelessly

 

I bought one to see how well it worked. Once I finally got it setup, I'm happy with it. I'm going to purchase more to secure my entire home.This product has... Adequate viewing area, Many good, useful features

App features finger tip control

Difficult to set up for external internet use

Ron is a very smart and helpful IT person.

 

Ron is a great worker and should be commend. The IT service was well polite and took time to help me understand what to put into the smart phone to activate the end product. We need more smart IT like RON working for this company.This product has......

THe camera is a great product to use at home. The remote access from smart phone is very handy

When you need to enter a new IP Address. Usually cable provider change the IP address from time to time

Consumer review by:

Okay camera

 

This is not a bad ip camera for $70. With that said, it was very confusing to set up for remote access. Just check out other reviewer complaints and you will see what I mean. Also, the Foscam remote applications are not that good lacking complete...

Good deal for the price paid

Lacking remote control capabilities, very slow updating and choppy
