This add-on camera expands your existing Logitech Alert system, so you can see what’s going on in other rooms or locations. It uses your existing outlets and electrical wiring to connect to your network and transmit video without new wires or networking hassles. All recorded video is backed up to your PC when it is connected to your network.
Pros: Video quality is VERY good. Setup on PC is easy. Fairly granular/concise and advanced control. Audio quality is ok and volume (gain possibly) is controllable. Video can be flipped/rotated to accomodate for unique mounting situations. Many mounting options/hardware included. Can be mounted to a window/other surfaces easily with included hardware (to face either way). Viewing from Droid X was simple, convenient and quality looked good.
Cons: Small lag when viewing from local network (1-3 Seconds), larger lag when viewing from Web/smartphone (2-6 seconds). I have set up 2 systems at 2 different locations and when setting up 1 or 2 cameras on the same circuit, I had good results. When installing 3 or more cameras, however, I have had several issues with the cameras either not being detected at all or dropping off from time to time. I plugged all the powerline network adapters into the same extention cord and ran long network cables to all the cameras to fix the issue but this defeats the whole purpose of powerline networking now, doesn't it?
Other Thoughts: VIEWING from web/smartphone is free, CONTROLLING from web/smartphone is $80. Powerline networking even just 1 camera is not possible for some electrical systems as some electrical systems will have unique characteristics which will prevent these devices from communicating properly.
