do not buy



This is hands down the worst electronic device I've ever purchased. Very bad support (hours on phone with no result). Very difficult to set up. Product simply does not work as advertised

Decent security camera


The deal breaker here for me is the limited choice of the recording feature. It's either always record, or scheduled recording. No motion detection triggered recording to your samba drive. Although there is an option to send you a small clip to...

Extremely easy setup with the included CD ; Nice design compared to other brand ; Decent video quality

No screws included for wall mounting ; No good motion detection triggered recording, basically limited choices for recording ; No horizontal/vertical video mirror

No Good as a baby monitor


Good piece of hardware. The software was ok. Lots of features to play with.

I was easily able to set this camera up. It had no problem connecting to my existing WiFi network. If the room has adequate lighting, the picture is great

For low light room (even those with a night light in them) the picture was dark or just simly black. Also the delay when you view the images through the rtsp service had an extreme delay (longer than I was willing to wait when using this as a baby...

Total Junk


If you just want to use it for a wired camera then it is fine. But to place it anywhere with out a wire it is worthless. Usually Linksys makes good products, this one is not.

Works well wired

Will not work wireless. I've worked with many IP Cameras. This one simply does not work. Perhaps it is a bad camera, I don't know. Don't have time to RMA so I'm just going to throw it in the trash

Weak antenna


This unit just isn't worked out.

easy to set up, especially with their software

weak antenna. I want it on the edge of my network, apparently, and it doesn't get a signal, while my iPhone and my laptop have no problem in the same location. I have moved it around quite a bit but no luck getting a stable signal ; The physical unit...

Linksys Wireless-N+RJ45 IP Camera with 1-Way Audio / Wi-Fi Protected Setup / MAX Resolution 640x480(WVC80N)


(1) Does not have night vision - will transmit black screen in darkness, and highly noisy picture in low light. However sensitivity can be adjusted within limits. (2) 1-way sound works only remotely - cannot be tested from within the network. (3) have...

(1) Very good video quality (after adjusting quality in camera's "Image" menu). (2) works both wired and wireless (have to be setup while connected wired); (3) painless setup (provided you are not a newbie in networking - automatic software setup did...

(1) Do not buy this if you do not have Linksys router, are not network savvy, or want to view the video from a highly secure environment like govt. office; (2) "automatic" setup through "TZO" server (will work only for Linksys router) is a trial...

Linksys WBC80N wireless IP Camera


I wanted a crib monitor that we could view at any of 3 computers throughout the house. It does that, but as noted above, I don't typically use IE, so I just need to open IE if I want audio. My daughter and son-in-law can view remotely without much...

crisp image 640 x 480 ; seems to be stable wirelessly over a month's use ; Was able to get it to work with so that my daughter can link to camera without having to keep track of ip address and port number

Audio only works with Internet Explorer ; Other browsers (firefox, safari) return only video ; Can view only on iPhone 4. Couldn't get it to work on blackberry

Good Stuff


i have this setup in my apartment by the door since mgmt put it into my lease that they can enter anytime and won't let me change the locks ; products works as intended/advertised ; not hard to setup

bit clunky with dark situations or situations where light changes fast

Very Good Monitoring System


Overall very happy with this camera, I have three of them setup around my house to see if I have any intruders while I'm not at home. I don't understand why this camera has such low ratings. It has many great features for a good price and easy...

Many features, motion detection, quick email updates directly to my smartphone, usually within 30 sec i get an email notification when my motion sensor has been triggered, can view live feed no matter where I am as long as I have an internet...

decent resolution-could be better, no zoom, the biggest drag I think is that its not battery powered. Its wireless so can be set-up virtually anywhere BUT you need A/C power, which sort of defeats the purpose of being wireless

Easy to use Internet Camera


I have it setup to use my router's port and I recommend using the IP Camera Viewer Lite for the Android phone.

Very easy to setup. Great resolution

I still haven't got the audio to work
