Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mark Very good Camera
Pros>Easy to set up, install SW, Wireless. Installed it before my vacation and could connect from overseas and see what is going on in my family room, entry doors, windows, garage door. Tested it - was emailing me images at any motion in front of the camera, night infra red also working. Planning to install couple more and cover more areas.
Cons>Had one question when setting up wireless and alarms to email, took me awhile to wait for the tech support, but the directions where good, and we get it going. Also it does not have a feature to follow the object, only records (take five shots) what is in front of the camera. But given the price it is still pretty good.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jenny Excellent! If you can get past the set up...
I was looking for a "pet cam" so that when we went away over the weekend I could keep an eye on my cat and make sure everything looked ok and that she had enough food. I was mainly looking for one that would allow me to view the feed over my smart phone. Over the Labor Day sale I saw this camera very reasonably priced (around 60 dollars) as well as color imaging, the ability to rotate the camera remotely, and night viewing. I wasn't expecting much but figured I would give it a shot since it had everything on my list. I will say that set-up even with the directions was difficult. But if you can get past the set-up (I had to google help from other users) the camera is excellent! The picture is clear, I haven't had any issues with the connection or the remote controls, and it is pretty easy to maneuver. I would definitely recommend!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ClaireS Peace of mind is 100%
Having these cameras in my living room give me the greatest peace of mind. I can check in on my dogs through out the day to make sure all is well. The color (as you can see in the attached picture) does vary by the amount of light in the room. I have the blinds closed and the tv on. That is the only light in the room.
Very easy to set up. I am able to access the picture from work on a PC, from another room in the house or even on my smart phone. I can use a Windows, Android or Iphone to view the image. I also like the ability to change the view remotely.

The camera can be managed, so far only from the same IP address as it has. Tried but still haven't figure out how to manage from remote.

Easy set up and excellent Baby monitor. Supports sound and voice with Foscam pro $6 app with iPhone.
Need static Ip or Dns service for web access.
Camera needs FTP Server to upload images on motion .
App suggests one for $10 a month.
Nice cam, Great Picture, Night and Day and the app supports turning the leds on and off. Wish I would have bought 2 of them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Great camera for security or baby monitor!
I have the camera mounted to the all and I have it set with default points so I can look all around the room easily. You can monitor video and audio from any computer and most smart phones (Android / iPhone / iPad / ideapad A1 / Transformer Pad Infinity) personally confirmed. There are free apps (Pro version usually required for audio. Usually $1.99) that work great for monitoring even when you are not at home.
A small amount of technical knowledge is helpful for monitoring outside the home (port forwarding and basic security). Night vision is great but there is an audible click when it engages/disengages. It has a speaker for two way audio built in. It isn't water proof so it should be for indoor use only.
I own three of these (this was my third purchased) and I use one at home and one at the baby sitter's to monitor the cribs from anywhere. I've done a lot of research, you won't find a better camera for the price on the market today.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DaleS Product works better than I anticipated
I bought this one to try it in my basement. The pan/tilt works well as does the low light level IR feature. I would recommend this product. I bought on sale for $69 from Home Depot. The software/application works well, but there are other options available for free download. I have not figured out how to view when Im away from home yet.
