Foscam FI8918W

 

Building and trying to monitor your own wireless security camera network may be more hassle than it is worth for most people, but the Foscam FI8918W is a great option if you decide to do it. This wireless camera makes using sophisticated technology easy.

The Foscam FI8918W camera has a large field of view and can pan and tilt to take in even more

The motion-detection email alerts would be more useful if they contained video rather than just photos

Monitoring your own wireless cameras is not for everyone, but if you choose to do it, the Foscam FI8918W offers the best combination of features for the job.

Overall this camera is exactly what I wanted it to be and I intend on ordering 2-3 more. I would recommend this device to friends as long as they understand that the resolution isn't the greatest. I've attached a photo taken of my kids play room so you...

Amazing Device! Does exactly what I expected it to.. VERY customizable interface and very easy to use. Night Vision works great! At LEAST 8meters as they advertized. Mine e-mails me if it detects motion or sound during specified times of the day

640x480 isn't high res these days and while it works for my use (watching the kids at night or while they're in their play room) it may not be high enough resolution for security as you may not be able to make out peoples faces from distance ; Manual...
