3 out of 5 eggsLooks good, but outside installation interesting

Pros: Appears to have good image quality in initial tests, and fairly stable on the wireless. Looks attractive and the mounting hardware is well thought out. "Feels" like a solid piece of equipment.

Cons: The connections are NOT what I would have wanted for an outdoor installation. The cord coming from the camera contains a reset switch (appears weatherproof), a CAT5 plug and a power plug (1/8" probably) all in one. So, I'm a little concerned about corrosion/dirt on the connectors under use, especially the CAT5 plug which will have nothing plugged in (thinking about just putting a plug in it for this reason only).

The power plug (separate unit containing plug, transformer and wire) does not plug into a standard outdoor socket and, since it is a molded unit, is difficult to modify. I ended up purchasing a 4 gang weatherproof electrical box and hard wiring a cable to it, then had that cable come out of the box and down to my outdoor weatherproof outlet. I"m sure there are other ways of doing this, but it was the simplest for my use.

Due to the problems figuring out how to get power to the unit safely and weather resistant, I have not completed the installation yet. Just be aware installation may be an issue if you really want to mount it outside.

Other Thoughts: Overall looks very good for the price. Deducted 2 eggs for outdoor installation problems.

2 out of 5 eggsLow resolution and narrow angle

Pros: Relatively inexpensive, has wifi (even though I don't use it), good night time visibility

Cons: The resolution is quite frankly very sub par and doesn't even allow for a decent picture to actually identify people on your property.
The housing is huge, but mostly empty.
The biggest downfall however is the camera viewing angle. It has a 4mm lens, but the field of view is nowhere near what other cameras do with 4mm. I upgraded to a 2.8 manually and it's actually ok now. Upgrades are yay as it is a standard lens that can be purchased online
