3 out of 5 eggsAlright, but not reliable

Pros: Decent picture for the cost. Has day/night, controllable LEDs, audio. Nice versatile mounting bracket -- works as a stand, wall or ceiling mount, and allows pointing in any direction in any setup.

Cons: Connection is not very reliable. Has trouble especially with multiple connections at once, even when connected via wired ethernet. I have two, and they both do this -- for many minutes, one just won't be accessible. Try again a while later, and it works fine.

Night mode switching is a bit aggressive, and can't be adjusted. Inside, if there's not light directly shining on the area being watched, it tends to go to night mode.

Other Thoughts: Many ways to access, but basically no documentation. I had to packet sniff to figure some URLs out:

JPG Image: /cgi/jpg/jpg.cgi
MJPG Image: /cgi/mjpg/mjpg.cgi
MJPG image: /cgi/mjpg/mjpeg.cgi (this is used by the included software, but doesn't work properly in browser. I haven't investigated much)

Audio: /cgi/audio/audio.cgi (16-bit PCM, mono, 8000hz. streamed in 3868 byte chunks as mime type multipart/mixed)

By running a proxy in front to remap URLs, I'm able to use this (including audio) with off-the-shelf software (I randomly picked a Trendnet TV-IP121W and used with TinyCam Pro).

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Features

Pros: FTP Still image upload, Motion Detection, Email alerts, Great Desktop software for video recording with audible alarm to scare away intruders.

Cons: Short power cable, grainy image

Other Thoughts: I am really liking this camera. I have it setup with a home FTP server and can manage it from anywhere with internet access. I didn't use the cloud based service because it seemed kind of questionable as far as security goes. I use the camera's built-in emailing feature for everyday motion detection and turn it on from my phone before I leave home. I plan to use the motion detection features of the desktop software when I'm away for long periods of time because it records video and plays an audible alarm when motion is detected. The video recording is kind of jumpy, and the sound is never with the video, but it does it's job.

4 out of 5 eggsNice unit

Pros: Picture is on par with specs. Some nice features in the GUI. Reliable to date.

Cons: GUI needs to be updated to not require activex. Phone app is lacking and is noted in reviews as being malware.

1 out of 5 eggsVery poor product based upon Java

Pros: It was 70% off!

Cons: The tools provided to configure and run the camera are based upon Java and when you try to run them with any recent version of Java you are warned that it will run with unrestricted access which may put your computer and personal information at risk. Then you click run and get a Java error that complains about a missing application-name manifest attribute.

Other Thoughts: Do some research and buy a webcam that is not based upon Java. I also went to the Rosewill website to see if they had updated the tools that would work with a recent Java release, and they do not.

1 out of 5 eggsIncorrectly Assembled

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: I bought two of these. One of them was mistakenly assembled with an IR filter so the IR illuminators are useless and nothing is viewable in the dark.

Other Thoughts: Purchased on sale through neweggflash.

3 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for

Pros: Easy Set up. I didn't use the supplied software though. Just set the IP and used a third party software

Cons: Looses connection a lot. Unreliable

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for, was on sale for $50. Works for a quick or temporary setup.

4 out of 5 eggsNice for child monitoring

Pros: Form factor - well described as about the size of a pack of cigarettes but a little thinner.
The setup was easy.
The night vision is adequate for small to mid-sized bedrooms.
These have microphones to listen in.
The cloud website was easy to set up (if you have your firewall accept the device requests and you make sure the cameras have a default gateway defined.) Also - keep your camera specific activation codes!(separate slip of paper in box)
The related mobile app is free and requires little setup.

Cons: I am getting about 5 frames per second on my local wireless N network, so the video is a little choppy.
Using the free mobile app with the cloud service doesn't always connect and crashes (andriod version)
Mounting bracket could be more compact.
Petty, but wish the power cord was white to match the white camera body (cord is black). I ceiling mounted these and the cord is a little conspicuous.

Other Thoughts: I put 5 of these in the kids' bedrooms and ply rooms. The video and audio quality is not quite on par with actual baby monitors, but I monitor multiple rooms, monitor sitters remotely, and record.
I am also using iSpy and very pleased with it so far, though not getting the audio with this software. I might try other packages.

3 out of 5 eggsnice camera, annoying limitations

Pros: * Good quality video, reasonably clear in daylight and surprisingly sharp in the dark with the IR LEDs on; good frame rate and little delay; stable streaming.

* Easy to operate using the web interface: both viewing the video stream (requires a Java plugin, I used icedtea on Chrome and Firefox and it works fine) and configuring settings seem to work fine, with the exception of motion detection (see below).

* The status LEDs on the front of the camera can be turned off so the camera is completely invisible in the dark (IR LEDs are a different story, see below).

Cons: * The camera doesn't have true PIR detection, rather one that's based on differences between consecutive images, so I'm guessing that (e.g.) lights from a passing car could trigger it on as well; the camera sensor has to be running at all time, and IR LEDs must be on when dark, in order for it to work. That said, this appears to be the standard detection mechanism used in cameras of this sort, so I can't complain about it that much.

* Defining motion detection areas requires ActiveX and so has to be done with Internet Explorer, which I don't use. It may be that the provided software (which needs to run on Windows) can be used for that, but I cannot use that as well. This also means that motion based triggering for doing FTP uploads or sending email notifications won't work; fixed schedule triggers (e.g. a picture every 30 seconds) work fine. I guess this is a known limitation, yet I find it an unacceptable one given the choices that software vendors have today.

* I could not register the camera with the monitoring website (, which kept claiming "device offline" whereas it was connected to my router (tried both wired and wireless). It may be that I have to have a PC running the provided software in order to connect to the service---? In any case, I should be able to monitor it remotely without the said service (see below), albeit not on a mobile device.
* IR LEDs produce a dim reddish glow when on, which makes them clearly visible in the dark; not clear why this is the case---?

* Switching to night vision and back emits a loud clicking; it sounds as if the relay that drives the IR LEDs is doing this. This is especially annoying when light level is borderline and the camera switches back and forth... I just keep it turned off regularly and turn it on by hand when needed, but this would prevent the motion detection from working in the dark.

* The camera body and mounting kit are entirely white, but it ships with a black power brick and cord. Go figure.

* Sloppy documentation with many typos, hard to read.

Other Thoughts: * I managed to connect to the camera from the outside world via an SSH tunnel to my home server. The video stream is as clear as it is on my home network, but that would vary based on your uplink and where the stream travels through on the Internet. In theory, I could use the same method to watch video from a mobile device, but I haven't gone through the pain. For some reason, plain port forwarding from the router to the camera did not work for me, but I have to say that I did not insist that much---the SSH solution would be way more secure and just a tiny bit less convenient.

* Haven't tried mounting it yet, but I suspect that the straight angled DC plug sticks out more that I'd want it to; I may end up replacing it with a square-angled, white one (the camera takes a standard 5V DC input).

* Bottom line: I'll need to get a Windows machine to talk to the camera in order to be able to use it's full line of features, namely motion detection and native remote monitoring on mobile devices. The image recognition based motion detection is inferior to PIR and/or microwave technologies used by alarm sensors, but I guess that's common in these consumer devices and to be expected. All in all, seems like a good buy for under $50.

4 out of 5 eggsNight vision

Pros: very good image (IR) in absolutely no light.
very simple to configure even in linux (via ethernet).
good instruction on how to expose stream to an internet device for monitoring.
wireless just "works" and hasn't had to be re-started in 3 weeks.

I am hesitant to install bloatware just to configure a wireless device, and many surveillance servers are running some locked down linux variant, so I thought I would initially use this camera in a manner that might simulate real world application. I plugged the camera in and attached its ethernet connection to my router. In linux, I went to my router's admin page and found the camera in the list of dhcp clients, and obtained its IP address. I opened another browser tab to that ip address, and logged in the camera's admin UI. I set up its wireless connection, and brought that up. I then gave the wireless connection a static ip, and then disconnected the ethernet. The camera has been feeding a stream since, which is about 3 weeks. I use mplayer to view the recorded stream, because mplayer doesn't require a file lock, it just shows the contents. So I don't worry about the requirement of Java to use a browser - I can point mplayer at a port and view its stream via mplayer, vlc, or other client software.

Because it uses 5VDC, I can connect it into a common battery-backed power supply so that even in power loss it will continue to record. Some systems have strange voltage requirements, and that requires you to buy a proprietary system at $$$$.

Camera, bracket, and adjustments are very solid construction. Easy to aim in a fixed position.

Cons: Includes software that might fool some into thinking that this device is limited to windows.

Setting up zoom does require windows/activex. Boo.

Power/IR lights are on the front and very bright. I would probably put 4 layers of electrical tape over those. Why make it obvious that it's a camera? You want your fakes to have lights, but not your real camera...

No sweep servo, all you get is one fixed-position, relatively narrow view.

Other Thoughts: I set it up in a completely dark room, and then felt my way around in the dark. On the video, I could see everything clearly enough to ID me and everything I touched.
