Foscam FI9821W V2 1-Pack (Black) with Heavy Duty 7-Piece Adjustable Bracket, 9dbi Antenna Booster and 10ft Power Extension

 

Placed RMA request with company on 10/07/2013. Foscam finally contacted me on 10/18/2013 and asked for my receipt which I provided. It is now 10/31/2013 and they have still not forwarded an RMA. Newegg has since refused to help. Will have to go through...

Shipped quick

Device failed after 24 hours of use. Lights up but will not connect to computer or function in any way

seems like a sturdy unit

It is wireless. However, it still needs power via PoE or plug the power supply into 110V outlet. Pan, Tilt, Zoom is good

Not ready for prime time

 

I should have listened to the others who said this product was not ready for market.Go do a little googling and read foscam's online forums about this product.I purchased it for use with a home automation system, and it has been a great disappointment....

Poor software, poor customer service

I bought this camera to monitor the cage of a chameleon. It is great as I am live feeding the camera to the internet so that I can pull it up and watch the chameleon at any time I want.

Video Quality, Easy Setup
