Linksys WVC200 Wireless IP Camera

 

Linksys has a pan, tilt and zoom IP camera at an amazing price, but is it too good to be true?

With a DHCP server on the case, installation is a cinch as you just read the IP address from the front panel and enter it into a web browser. Alternatively, you can use the bundled setup wizard utility which searches for Linksys cameras and takes you...

I Spy With My Roving Eye- Linksys WVC200 Review

 

No it's not a movie with Sid James in it, but the latest wireless PTZ webcam from Linksys. Fancy keeping an eye on the kids, your pets or even work colleagues while you're away? Then the new Linksys WVC200 may have the answers if you have the patience.

Bad Deal - Heres Why...

 

I enjoy Linksys / Cisco product and usually find them to be high quality. The casing on this camera is nice and the interface is much like any other linksys product.

Ability to aim camera via web browser, wireless worked great. Audio with video was nice. High frame rate.

High res and high quality is not impressive.

Bad Deal - Heres Why...

 

I enjoy Linksys / Cisco product and usually find them to be high quality. The casing on this camera is nice and the interface is much like any other linksys product. However the video quality leaves much to be desired. It maxes out at 640x480 but is...

Not Bad

 

Camera works well. Setup is not as difficult as people say. IP address displays on LED screen. Camera has built in webserver. You can type IP address in your browser and set it up online. You just have to hard wire it to your network before you turn it...

Does not support WPA2 security (very sad for a newer product). Webserver not compatible with iPhone. You can configure it but cannot view the video.

Not for Vista Users

 

Motiion detection produces lots of false positives -- emails with ~1MB attachments when there has been nothing moving in front of the camera. It will fill your mailbox, especially if you set the sensitivity too high. At night, the image "noise" is a...

It works. Image quality is acceptable. Sensitive to infrared illumination.

Emailed videos, as a consequence of enabling motion detection, are unviewable in Vista. What's the point if you cannot use this for unattended intruder detection! The device emails a ".ASF" video file which will not play in Vista's Windows Media Player...

Mediocre product from mediocre company

 

Buy used and\or test it *first* or don't buy it at all.

While it all works it's a great bang-for-buck product

Quirky. Most people will be unable to get all their desired functions to work. Camera seems 'unstable' - crashes, loses connection, etc

Not difficult to setup

 

I'm connecting this wireless to a WRK54G router which I've changed from the standard configuration and I still had no problem. I plugged it in to a hard line, logged in on my ROUTER to view the DHCP clients, and found it. Then I logged into the camera...

Setup was easy. I had it operating (via a hardline) within 5 minutes of opening the box

Wireless setup was straightforward, however they didn't mention in the instructions that you must unplug the wired connection, power off, then back on for the wireless to initialize

Awesome

 

Tech Support issues? I dont think its Lynksys - its the outsource of support and they cannot understand us, nor we them. Another great NAFTA deal.... get support back in the USA

Great Cam for the money - everything works just right!

None at present

Product Specifications

The Linksys Wireless-G Pan/Tilt/Zoom Video Camera sends live video through the Internet to a web browser anywhere in the world! The advanced MPEG-4 video compression produces a high-quality, high-framerate, up to 640x480 video stream. MPEG-4 encoding facilitates good video quality in varying bandwidth environments. WVC200 also supports MJPEG compression for video, providing good video quality at high bandwidth rates. The comprehensive video features include an IR filter cut which allow you to see the images in low or no light environments when an IR lamp is used. Snapshots (in JPEG format) of the image can be taken and saved. Snapshots can also be scheduled and sent to an FTP server. If you want the video to be visible from a remote location or from the Internet, you can open an appropriate port on the Router, and then create password protected accounts to manage access to the camera, or leave it wide open for the world to see. Support for Dynamic DNS lets you access your camera using an easy-to-remember "name", even while using a dynamic IP address. The Pan/Tilt and digital zoom function allows you to remotely control the camera movement and focus, giving you maximum flexibility remotely. Up to 10 simultaneous users can have access to the camera at any point in time. Software is included for multiple camera monitoring and recording to your hard drive with advanced search by time and date. Recording can be set up to record by motion trigger, manual or schedule recording and playback on Windows Media Player without the need for a proprietary player. You can also turn on Security Mode, which tells the camera to send a message with a short video attached to up to three email addresses whenever it detects motion in its field of view. You can then log onto the live video stream if the situation warrants. Wireless security features include WEP and WPA.
