Axis 207W network camera

 

If you need to place a Web camera far away from a wired connection or computer, then the Axis 207W is a good choice; the large image size and high frame rate are bonuses. If, on the other hand, you just want a simple Webcam, the 207W is probably overkill.

Lots of configuration options ; large image size ; solid frame rates ; picture looks bright ; uses fast 802.11g wireless ; small and lightweight

Interference from AirPort Express in some setups ; partial frame dropping when located at the outer edge of the wireless range ; washed-out colors ; expensive

Aimed at users with serious remote-monitoring needs, as well as dedicated hobbyists, the 207W can do everything from watch a shipping door to keep an eye on the backyard. The camera's built-in Web server and 802.11g wireless capabilities mean you can...

Email does not work with google or hotmail

 

I didn't give the software (Nero) a check as I'm running Ubuntu on my machine. Not sure what to say about it.

Nice wireless camera

 

I'm going to be buying more of these.

This is a great camera - if you're looking for a surveillance camera, I'd highly recommend it. The wireless connection is rock solid; it's been connected for weeks without a problem. Many options to choose from and the MPEG-4 is true MPEG-4...

None that I have encountered so far

AXIS COMMUNICATION INC. AXIS 207W WRLS NETWORK CAMERA WIRELESS 802.11G 30FPS IN VGA RES

 

Good hardware, but confusing installation, one out of two cameras is working, was not able to set it up on the internet and the one piece of software which is easy to use, monitor and record will cost an additional $600.00. I''m wondering if the other...

Good picture quality, good wide view - hardware works fine

Camera software management is free for one view but the camera one station is expensive if you have more than one camera. I have two cameras in an office building lobby, and one needs to be reset everyday. Could not make it work outside the network,...

Very Nice...

 

I plan to buy some more of these!

I plugged this camera into my router and within seconds it was accessible through the network. There are tons of setting variations, and I haven't gone through them all yet. I was impressed when I was viewing the camera in my browser, I unplugged the...

Recording software is my next buy and that's expensive

Nice camera BUT...

 

Lots of wasted time to get a functional camera. All cameras had the latest firmware. All could not be factory reset. All were confirmed dead. I don't know what to say other than next time I'll probably shop around for an alternative network camera.

FIRST.. this is a nice camera. Functionality is good, options are great, size is great. I have an existing 207w camera on our network as well as 3 206 cameras. All work great. Firmware is the latest in our existing 207w. My issue comes with the fact...

First camera (latest firmware) stopped responding during the configuration of it. Call to Axis confirmed it was dead, could not access it or reset it. Replaced by Newegg (who was great to deal with in this matter). Second camera, started configuring...

Great Security Cam

 

This is a great security cam. I set it up 30 feet away from wireless AP and never got disconnected. Very configurable, can be setup to send you the motion detect video or notification via e-mail or store it on hard drive. Motion detection can also be...

AXIS 207W WRLS NETWORK CAMERA WIRELESS 802.11G 30FPS IN VGA RES

 

If you seek a top-notch IP camera, this is a great one for your home or office.

This is a powerful little camera which works remarkable will in all lighting conditions including at night. The wireless feature enable you to place it just about anywhere and it''s size makes it almost unnoticeable. The microphone is extremely sensitive.

It is a bit pricey and requires some technical ability to set it up properly. But once set up, it''s great.
