3 out of 5 eggsJust as I expected!

Pros: Amazing Device! Does exactly what I expected it to.. VERY customizable interface and very easy to use. Night Vision works great! At LEAST 8meters as they advertized. Mine e-mails me if it detects motion or sound during specified times of the day.

Cons: 640x480 isn't high res these days and while it works for my use (watching the kids at night or while they're in their play room) it may not be high enough resolution for security as you may not be able to make out peoples faces from distance.

Manual focus ring means you can't have it pan/scan a room that has objects closer or farther away than others. Again, acceptable in my case.

Capture speeds - When it detects motion it's not always great at catching it on the camera. NOTE: It is attempting to catch fast moving children in my house...

Upgrades were easy to do but the website housing Firmware and WEBGUI updates is somewhat confusing on which version you can upgrade to. I accidentally upgraded mine to an incompatible version and had to revert to prior version to get wifi to work again.

Other Thoughts: Overall this camera is exactly what I wanted it to be and I intend on ordering 2-3 more. I would recommend this device to friends as long as they understand that the resolution isn't the greatest. I've attached a photo taken of my kids play room so you can see what it does.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat product!

Pros: This camera is amazing for the price. It took me about 15min to setup on my LAN as a wired cam and maybe 10 more min to get it on WIFI. Interface is very easy to understand and very customizable.

Cons: Manual focus only means you need to strategically place it where focus won't need to be adjusted. Tech support isn't that great from the manufacturer but it's easy to use. Upgraded Firmware and WEBGUI and had issues with WiFi connections, had to downgrade Firmware to get WiFi to work again. Resolution is 640x480 which is low for todays specs. Mounting bracket that came with it doesn't make a solid connection so any movement will spin the camera around on the mount.

Other Thoughts: The factory WebGUI didn't have any support for Mobile Phones. New WebGUI does. Firmware updates were easy but cryptic as to which one to install. You can downgrade easily though just be cautious and read the readme files as to which ones work with your hardware.
