Very Nice, Very Functional Camera


We initially bought a fixed IP camera from another manufacturer, which works fine (and is still running in another location), but which we realized would not cover the main area we wanted to view. After searching (mostly by reading reviews by other...

Easy install, easy to use, great picture, controls and functionality. Absolutely a great buy at the price and everything we wanted in an IP camera ; We really like that you can control access to the camera by accounts and that you can physically turn...

Excellent camera, excellent Panasonic customer support


My wife and I wanted to keep an eye on the nanny with our baby from work. After researching the network cameras for several months, it seemed that only Panasonic cameras consistently received positive (usually glowing reviews) whereas cameras from...

Easy setup for wired or wireless connection. Excellent Panasonic customer support to walk you through every stage of configuration if you need

Camera works nicely now. Software is convenient to use (motion sensing recording, etc)

Camera died after 15 minutes of use. I called Newegg who redirected me to manufacturer. I had to jump through hoops to get authorization to send it back. I also had to spend MY MONEY on shipping to return it for repair and then waited 3 weeks until I...

Excellent IP camera.


Very versatile camera, the wireless features, and hosted remote site (for internet viewing), add great value to the camera.

Slightly more expensive than others, but pan/tilt, zoom capability makes up for this.

Excellent IP camera.


Set up was pretty straight forward, BUT you will want to initially set this up as a hard wired unit. Once initial setup done, switch to Wireless setup and complete this functionality.

Very versatile camera, the wireless features, and hosted remote site (for internet viewing), add great value to the camera. Everything works well out of the box

Slightly more expensive than others, but pan/tilt, zoom capability makes up for this. Some technical knowledge needed on port forwarding for Internet viewing (on your local router)
