Not bad! 03/04/2013
This review is from: HooToo HT-IP210F Indoor Wireless IP Camera MJPEG CMOS with IR-Cut Filter (Black)
Bright night vision
Wired or Wireless
A relay clicks when turning on / off IR LEDs (automatically turns on and off depending on brightness of the room).
I'd subtract an egg for the cons, but the price outweighs that egg.
This is my first security camera, so I cannot compare it to other cameras. What I can say is that I expected far less from a camera in this price range. The software provided could use some new translations, but it's not that bad and it's easy enough to figure out. The software supports up to 16 cameras on a single screen, as well as motion detection, recording and all the other stuff you would expect. The IR LEDs are plenty bright for indoor use -- far better than I expected, given some of the other reviews. The daytime colors aren't prefect, but they are not bad. I like the ability to save camera positions and automatically rotate the camera on a looping schedule. The motors are fast and quiet too.
The only complaint I have with this camera is the use of a mechanical relay instead of a solid state relay for turning on and off the LEDs. I have a somewhat dark room with a TV in it and the light from the TV causes the camera to click the LEDs on and off -- again and again. It's a little annoying, but considering everything else, I'll manage.
The only function that is missing (imo) is zoom capability - but that's a pricey option for a camera in this price range.
I'd definitely recommend this camera and I may buy one or two more for my home.
