Panasonic BL-C230A IP camera


I'm new to IP cameras but have a better than average knowledge of electronics and computers. Trusting Panasonic for high quality reliable products, I got 2 of these on sale for 149 @. So far I'm pleased with the performance on a wireless network (good...

Designed to mount squarely on a flat surface, makes it difficult to angle the camera. The PTZ feature overcomes this problem in some situations where the angle is not too great. A corner mount adapter would be a welcome addition ; Night time image for...

Won't connect in wireless mode


I have two BL-C201A wired versions. They work well within the limitations of the ambient light as others have noted.

Works in wired mode

This one won't connect wirelessly, it just blinks the red light after it fails to connect. I've reset the unit, and triple checked the WPA2/AES settings. From the router status, I can see the mac address come and go, but it never connects. I emailed...

Panasonic 4 Webmasters


We needed a replacement to the Panasonic arch shaped brother that faithfully set in the attic sun solidly uploading a webcam image 24/7/365 for 5 years until it's lens began to sunburn and blur. After buying every other brand to my horror Panasonic has...

Does it all and the ONLY manufacturer (Panasonic) with a timer based, single FTP image filename upload function (webcam in a box). PLUS can be configured for direct public viewing with no username/password requirements. A webmasters go-to toy and only...

Compared to it's 5 year old companion and other "external antenna" based alternatives it's wireless range is minimal. It's compact cube footprint however is a plus if range is not an issue. Boring to have to buy the same old thing every time because no...

This is a wonderful camera for personal use.


This camera is very, very good for personal use. It has high definition and it's easy to use and set up. The wireless feature is extremely helpful- and an upgrade from my stationary camera that I'd been forced to use for a few years. I enjoy using this...
