4 out of 5 eggsIts Great for the Price

Pros: Easy set up. Works as advertised. I find it works all over. I liv in Jersey and I viewed Pictures and video while in Hawaii. Real Time and Live.

Cons: OK, not the best picture in the world. Sometimes jumpy, somtimes it freezes, but really, for under 100 bucks, it's to be expected.

Other Thoughts: I started with one and now I have four. While on vacation, the Alarm went off, We Called our house sitter and was able to watch and listen as the sitter and police went through the house to assure it was secure. What a great piece of mind. We were able to check in on our Pets and assure they were OK. I think these little cams are great for the price. All the techies on here that are taring it apart, go out and buy a $1000 cam if your looking for that kind of quality.

2 out of 5 eggsUpdated EggXpert review

Pros: First of all I want to point out that this is an updated review. I felt the need to provide this update after testing this product more thoroughly.

Very easy to set up. The free Android app is simple to use and has a very basic layout that just about anyone should be able to figure out.

Night vision works well and I'm actually surprised by the range the IR lights provide.

Wide angle lense offers a decent viewing area, despite the relatively low 640 x 480 max resolution.

Offers both Wi-Fi and Ethernet connection options.

Fully adjustable and can be wall-mounted if desired. It ships with everything needed to accomplish this.

Cons: The documentation is simply horrid. It's not that it's just basic, it's completely devoid of info regarding the features offered by this camera. The recording function is not detailed at all and it's not clear if this camera supports PoE or not. All you get is a very basic quick start guide that guides you through the initial set-up using a smartphone.

Forces you to use a smartphone to initially set-up the camera. It's not clear if you can even accomplish this via a PC or Laptop, although Belkin does force you to update the firmware via a PC or laptop (AFTER set-up has been completed). I don't get this at all...

Can't achieve more than 8-10 fps no matter how I configure it. It's possible to set the frame rate to 30 fps but it's just not possible to actually achieve it, even with the video quality set to the lowest setting. Motion is very choppy all the time.

Buggy performance and delays are common. Sometimes there's anywhere from a 30-60 second delay between what you're viewing and what's actually being recorded. The only way to combat this is to keep logging in and out so the feed resets. This is very annoying.

So far, the only time I can view the video\audio feed without any timeouts is when I'm connected to my Wi-Fi at home. This is the single biggest issue I have with this camera. My Galaxy S2 uses Tmobile's HSPA+ 4G network, which averages around 15-25 Mb/s, which should be sufficient for this camera. However, I get constant freezing and timeouts (with the 5 min timeout message). I can't even enable audio when connected via the 4G network. When I try to enable audio, I get a message that the audio should come on shortly but it never does. This is simply unacceptable because I'm unable to view the video feed while on the go for any practical length of time. I have to keep logging in and out to even catch a few minutes of the feed, because it usually freezes after running for a minute or so.

There is a recording feature built into the mobile app. However, there are two issues with it that keep it from actually being useful. First, it limits your recordings to a maximum of 4 minutes in length. There is no way to set this any higher. Once the 4 minutes is up it simply stops recording. Secondly, the quality of the recordings are horrible due to a high level of compression. Since the video signal is already poor to begin with, the heavy compression makes it almost unwatchable on larger screens.

When logged into the video feed from a PC or laptop, there is no record function. You would have to use third party software to capture the feed. Doesn't make any sense...

Other Thoughts: I just wish I would have had the time to test this product more thoroughly back when I first received it. That way my initial review would have been more accurate. As it was, I had a few different products to review at that time so I felt somewhat rushed, therefore my initial review painted this product in a much better light.

Basically it comes down to this... This camera is only viable for monitoring live feeds while you're at home connected to your Wi-Fi. Performance is abysmal in any other scenario, making this product pretty much useless for monitoring on the go. I keep waiting for Belkin to release a new firmware to address the buggy performance, however it still hasn't come. I updated the firmware when I first received this product a few months ago and there hasn't been any updates since then.

If you want the ability to monitor the feed from anywhere, or the ability to record and take snapshots via motion detection, don't even bother with this camera. In fact, I'd say don't even bother with it at all.

1 out of 5 eggsProduct - Bad. Support - Even worse.

Pros: Relatively inexpensive, compared to other similar models.

Cons: Can't access them outside of my home, even in a DMZ. Belkin suggests to lower the quality to 1 fps so it will work. Unacceptable.

Other Thoughts: Don't waste your time or money. Belkin support site shows "Oops, page not found" for every link associated with contacting support for this product.

3 out of 5 eggsUpdated review after new firmware

Pros: Please read my review below. I am unable to add to it so I have to write a new review. After updating the firmware I waited for 2 days before the camera finally connected back on it's own. As of now, the camera is more stable so I am going to give it a fair chance and I will update again in a month or so. The camera still is not getting more than 8 fps and I have moved the wireless router around a bit to see if it is the signal to no avail. Average FPS 7.9 when I have it set to 25-30 and checked other various settings. The program crashed in the first 5 minutes of changing settings. I gave it one more start because the "5 minute timeout" was fixed with the firmware. After a few more updates I believe this camera will turn out to be ok. I will update again if I see any significant changes

Cons: Still not performing like it should be after the newest firmware update but I believe Belkin is working on the bugs at this time as the newest firmware has corrected the "5 minute time out." This was one of the biggest issues for a lot of people as I found out by searching for a solution.

Other Thoughts: I will update again and believe this camera has to potential if the software issues can be addressed.

2 out of 5 eggsNice little camera - many issues with software

Pros: Camera quality is decent for the price (600x480) and excellent audio range.

The camera range is great for setting up in a room to be able to view either in full color in well lit rooms. It does change to black and white of course when it is dark and the night vision is enabled. The night vision is decent up to 10-12 feet, anything over that and it fades out with the exception of further distances having a light on in another room further away, the sensitivity picks the light up and images can be distinguished such of that of a person or furniture (tested at 30 ft).

The audio is excellent on this camera. I am able to hear from outside my house. I set it up outside above my front door and I can hear people that live on both sides of me along with my dog inside my house barking. My dog sounds like it is outside about 10 ft from the camera and I was shocked that it was my own dog barking all day long that is 20 foot from the door in the kitchen. It would be great if this was water and moisture proof. I will not leave it outside although I have tested it for a week now under my porch outside even during rain and high humidity. It is a nice to be at work and be able to see if anyone is on my property which is very small but I am able to view both my car and motorcycle which are parked within 20 feet of the camera next to each other.
If you get a lot of packages delivered to your front door while not at home, it would be great to have this mounted to see if anyone is trying to take them. Positive ID on a face would have to be no more than 10 feet from the camera which does not make it ideal for this however.

Cons: This camera has several issues that need to be addressed.

First, I had to install the software twice to make it work. Nothing else worked as it would not connect even after changing settings and turning the camera off/on and even unplugging. No big deal but a little trouble shooting right off the bat. After the second install on the phone it worked great for about a day but then had more issues such as the 5 second time out, very choppy frame rates (even though the camera is less than 10 feet from the router), and sometimes saying the camera was offline when I know it was not the speed of the internet connection on phone or computer. I have 15 Megabit download and 1.5 Megabit upload cable internet and 4G on the phone which gets 7 Megabit down and 2 Megabit upload. I checked it multiple times to see if it was my connection and it absolutely was not.

I spent over 2 weeks using the camera and searched many forums to resolve my issues and that leads me to Belkin support. They know about all of these issues and I know they will address them but after the second firmware I can say avoid this camera and search for something that is ready to be released. They did not do a good job in the R&D (research and development) of this product and there are many unhappy customers. I truly believe they will fix this but to have the general public trouble shoot these issues is not good business. After the second firmware update the camera is not connecting at all. I had a time limit to review this product but a little over 2 weeks is enough for me to say avoid at this time!

Here is another issue... when trying to log on with IE (Internet Explorer) the webpage loads over and over to infinity. I have had to use Firefox to log in.

5 minute time out - you have to restart the camera which is extremely unacceptable. In the app it says to use it as a P2P if this happens but this should be easier to do and the average user will not take this step.

Choppy frame rates - a car or person will be in the frame and next thing you know is they disappear from lag issue. The software should find the issue and not have you rely on troubleshooting this yourself.

Latest firmware not working - I am sure I will have to reinstall the app and do even more trouble shooting to get this to work. I have unplugged the camera, toggled the switch and still unable to connect using the phone or computer to see the camera. Not being see by the router either... will make an average person pull their hair out. I know I will get it working, but again... unacceptable.

Other Thoughts: Belkin, please address these issues. You have a very capable camera but the software needs to be ready before releasing this to the general public. I have been trouble shooting for over 2 weeks to get this to work right and after the latest firmware, it's obvious it will take longer.

For the customer - I truly believe in Belkin products and know they will resolve this, but at this time 10/12/13, you may want to find another wifi camera.

3 out of 5 eggsOK Camera

Coming Soon!

Pros: Easy to set up (with iDevice or Android device)

decent video quality

Good sound quality

can record to your smart device

Easy to move around, just unplug and then plug it back in, it remembers connection info.

Will send e-mail alerts with pics if you want, has an adjustable sensitivity.

IR mode works well, nothing spectacular, but works.

Colors are pretty accurate in regular mode with good light, a little off in low light, but nothing bad.

Cons: Must have an iDevice or Android device, no Windows Phone support

Unable to set up on a computer

Can not record to a computer

Included instructions are poor

is a little warm to touch (not hot or dangerous, but I was surprised that it was as warm as it was)

if recording with sound at higher settings, the FPS drop drasticly and it looks like it is recorded in slow motion and sound is off (tested on iPhone 5, iPad 2 and iPad Mini with same results over a wireless n connection)

I am having problems getting the Belkin site to let me monitor the camera from a computer (IE 10. Opera 12, Opera 15 and Chrome). It worked at first, but then I upgraded the firmware and now only the smart device interface works.

Other Thoughts: You can not set this up on a computer. I tried several ways and it just is not possible that I can find.

Wired connection is only 10/100, yet it has wireless n, why no gigabit connection with wired?

Description say it has 640x480, 320x240 and 160x120 resolution, but I could not find 160x120, no big deal for me, but if you need that, then this will not do it.

Online instructions were a little better than the included ones, but not much.

I wish it was made for outdoors or at least offered a housing to use outdoors. I wanted to use it for a front door monitor, but can't mount it outside by the door.

If your looking for a simple camera to check on something when your away, this is fine option, but as a "security" camera, no.
WIth no ability to record to a computer and no way to log in to the camera on a local network it just is not feasible.

Mine is set up in my garage now to let me check if I forgot to close the garage door and sends me alerts when the door is opened (lets me know when my kids are home from school).

I guess it could work as a baby monitor, but as some have mentioned, they have time out issues (longest I have monitored it was 20 minutes and had no issues).

If I had purchased this camera, I would be returning it since it does not fit my needs, but I will keep it for use as described above.

The video is from the camera, no sound, 640x480, 30 fps with high quality selected.
Starts out in IR mode then switches to regular.

5 out of 5 eggsAffordable Night-vision Monitoring

Pros: Setup was very easy to do, and follow the instruction pamphlet.
Wireless setup via an Android smart phone was extremely easy to follow. The step by step wizard guides you through the process.
Image quality is decent for this type of camera.

Network connectivity plays a big role in how well this camera performs. (See my other thoughts section)

Night vision is pretty decent but not great. If there is absolutely no ambient light then the inferred LEDs do not supply much light for distance. Outside with a little ambient light from the surrounds really helps. In low light situations this camera works pretty well.

Audio is a plus whenever you want to monitor an area. This mic is pretty sensitive and will pick up the audio of my neighbors not visible in the frame and across the street.

Wifi connection stability is decent. I like that is has an Ethernet port as well, but I've mainly stuck with the WiFI connection.

Mounted camera stays in place and easy to adjust. Has fairly long power cord so you can mount the camera on a ceiling while being plugged in below.

Each camera you have setup can be monitored from any computer or phone with internet. I've only tried it with Windows and Android.
The inferred lights can be disabled at night if you have an alternate source. This is helpful so the red LEDs do not show up.

You can be alerted via email when motion has been detected.

Able to share your camera

Cons: The WiFi range is not great. If the device is with in 10 to 20 feet of a wireless router it seems to be pretty good. The frame rate seems to drop drastically after this point. At about 50 feet I cannot get a connection to the router. The router can see the camera but the camera cannot see the router. My guess it the camera does not have strong enough signal strength to go the distance..

Would be nice if you could be alerted when the camera loses signal or the power is cut.

Other Thoughts: I always make sure to get a camera with audio capabilities just in case there is a situation taking place that moves off camera.

I've had one issue when my network gets unstable. The camera never got reinitialized to the router. I do have about 3 routers running in my house. I had to recycle the power on the camera then go through the setup again to connect the camera to a different router. It might have been a distance issue or something with the Asus Router I was attaching it to.

Other than that I've had no issues with this camera. It now works great keeping an eye on my tools in the garage.

4 out of 5 eggsA decent little camera

Pros: First impressions when I first opened up this camera, I was actually impressed with it's size, it's not tiny, but it's smaller than a lot of the CCTV and Network cameras I have used in the past. It's lightweight and seems to have ample mounting hardware supplied, though I was happy to just set it on my entertainment center so it could watch my front door. The power adapter has a nice long cord, which makes it easier to place. Setup for me was a breeze, I had the Belkin account setup and the camera running in under 6 minutes. The app for iPhone 4s gave me no trouble and logins were relatively quick. The picture quality, for it's size and cost is relatively good and I was seeing decent frame rates ( 6 ~ 14 fps). When I enabled the motion detection, I used the email feature and any time it saw me or anyone else walk by it snapped 2 pictures and emailed them to me within a minute or so. The audio feature is very sensitive, I was able to hear myself talking in another room. The night vision worked pretty good, I was able to see myself in my living room even at night with the lights off. The iPhone app gave me no trouble recording video clips or snapping pictures from the camera. The camera itself seems to be very stable so far, I have not had to reset it or fiddle with it otherwise.

Cons: This camera, unlike other network cameras I have experience with, does not appear to have very many settings, and there seems to be a lack of a direct login ( like you would see with a home router) instead you have to do everything through Belkin's website. The audio on the camera can be very noisy because it is so sensitive depending on if you have any appliances on, etc. The camera does not have software that runs on the website or a PC that records video continuously, which would make this less effective as a security camera. The motion detection pictures it captured and emailed to me were sometimes blurry. If you try to hide this camera the IR LEDs for the night vision can make it stick out like a sore thumb as they glow dimly red (though I must note that alot of the inexpensive cameras are the same way). The Belkin app has a splash screen ( that you cannot disable) that does delay you getting to your camera for about 2 - 3 seconds.

Other Thoughts: I have had this camera for 2 weeks and have been checking in on it while I am at work and when I have not been home in general. I have not had to reset it or change the settings since I installed it. A few considerations when you buy this camera, don't expect good frame rates or a fast login if you are on a slow connection like DSL. On the connection I tested ( 30mbps download / 5mbps upload) I was setting 6 - 14 frames per second and for mobile it ran about 4 - 8 frames per second on my 3G iPhone 4s with the wifi turned off. I did not get to try this camera on an Android device yet. Some of the features you will need to setup in the camera settings, such as quality and max frame rate, which will affect it's performance and your experience. The camera does have a direct network port as well in case you do not have wireless. Make sure to update the firmware via Belkin's website / camera settings. Keep in mind, the picture is good, but the resolution is only about 640 x 480. You do need to login to the full Belkin Netcam site to get to all the settings. I have not tried the sharing feature yet, but it seems to be rather easy to implement as well.

All in all I was impressed with this camera and I would recommend it for active light monitoring / surveillance. I would not recommend this camera in any situation that you need to go back and review footage or you cannot pay attention to it when events occur. The only thing it can save is the still pictures it sends you via email from the motion detection feature or video and snapshots you take manually. It was easy to implement and seems to be fairly stable with very little issues. I would much prefer to not be tied to Belkin's website, but at the same time, configuration and use was alot easier than most network cameras I have used because of the website. It was very easy to setup and was very user friendly for those will little networking experience.

1 out of 5 eggsNot worth it

Pros: Not much too say here.

Cons: Quirky to setup.

Other Thoughts: I prefer manual setups to automated and after upgrading the firmware cannot access via a straight ip browser connection. Forced to use phone or Belkin website.

3 out of 5 eggsNot good netcam, a few flaws

Pros: The camera delivers an excellent picture. Tested wireless mostly. At close ranges to the router it had excellent quality and framerate. The night vision is excellent, providing a clear view of the room even when it is very dark. I used it on my 75 gallon fish tank, and was able to watch the fish from my phone or tablet.

I also found that the ability to share the stream to others by simply sending them an invite. Then they make their account, and they can instantly share in the picture.

Cons: On the downside, this baby really needs to either be wired into the network, or be very close. Otherwise the framerate starts suffering, badly. One floor makes a huge difference in its ability to talk to my Asus AC router.

Also, I could not get the motion detection to work, period. It would not email me, or alert the app even when sensitivity was cranked all the way up, and I was dancing in front of the camera. As this was going to go into work as a baby monitor, it simply will not work because of this issue

Other Thoughts: I like this camera. Although it falls short in the range department, and the motion detection did not work in wireless mode. Note that I did not try the motion detection in wired mode. If I get that chance I will update my review.
