Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CamMan The technology works very well.....if you know technology...
The question: would you recommend this product? Yes & No. Really! It requires that you know how to change settings in your router so that you can port forward the camera's IP to allow users to pull it up on the net....other than THAT....it works fantastic! I have it in my mother's room (94 w Alzheimer’s). I have it set up on her chair, her bed, her bathroom and the doors to the room. Fantastic vid day and night. I can also hear her and could talk to her, if she could hear. I can also watch the aides and nurses. I can make sure she is safe on my phone, my computer etc. My sister in another state can pull her up. It really does work great.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Savvybuyer once installed works
It is very frustrating to install it. The logo does not scan (said it is not their camera). Had a few tech support calls before I finally got hold of Brandon, who took control of my laptop and installed both of my cameras within 35minutes. Once installed it works. Here are what to expect:
1. Night vision is practically non existent. I had dim light and you cant see much more than a few feet away.
2. With light, it does give decent pictures. Audio does nork
If you don't have huge expectations (for the price, you shouldn't), you can be quite satisfied as it does basically what it said (besides the ez install). Great for monitoring children with the two way audio

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mmm Good camera but not Plug and Play
This camera is not "Plug and Play" I had to call customer support and they had problems getting it set up correctly. After they got it working it works okay but be aware it has false triggers caused by flashing lights or TV.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Procontractor HORRIBLE! THEIR TECH SUPPORT WORSE
Their claim to fame is that you get free live setup help. WHAT A JOKE! wait times are over an hour. Then the reps are rude and impatient. They set it up alright but try using it. BIG MISTAKE

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BenFromFL Hardware good, software wonky
It looks and feels good. I put in the CD to install the camera software but software seemed "universal" so I installed the software for this model from their website, still didn't work completely. Finally found I should just go to the cameras IP address in my browser and use the software built into the camera. Even then there are too many settings. Find myself googling some of the features because they don't explain what it means. Need some tech skills to get all the fun out of it. Took a few days of playing to figure it out but now I got it down. The mobile app is a good, although you can't access recorded videos from the SD card on the app, only view live and start recording. I would like to try a Dlink just to compare.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JB Foscam wireless 720p plug and play.
When it first arrived it was pretty easy to install. When it came to set the settings up and the app. it took getting to know how it works and understanding but worked at the end. Now i can check on my house during the day to see how the baby sitter is doing with my kids right on my phone. It really gives you a safty blanket that you didnt have before. It works perfectly couldn't ask for more especially at the low pricing compared to others. I regret not buying more of them.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MILFORDMAN PLUG 'N PLAY? Ahhh...NO!
'They' make it sound simple to set-up - IT S NOT!
after 3 days and countless hours
trying to do it on my own
I decided to call TECH SUPPORT
which took control of my computer
everything for me
when he was setting it up
you should see all the steps he went through
to get it to work!
this is in no way - a simple PLUG 'N PLAY step up
you need to be tech savvy!
call tech support right from start
it's a 30+ minute wait
but it's worth it
once set-up - THE CAMERAS ARE GREAT!
all in all - I am not sure if I will keep them
I will try them out for the next month
and see what happens
I have yet to view them from outside my home
which will be the real test..

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tillou Great Camera; horrible setup
This is a great little camera as far as picture quality is concerned. Also the app on iPhone is pretty basic to use as well. The setup on the other hand is not exactly easy. I would warn anyone with little to no experience with setting up wireless router's or internet connections to think twice. I would like to think I have basic experience with home networking and let me tell you it took me a few days to get this little thing to connect through wireless. The camera itself is great though and for the price for the deal of the day, I couldn't pass it up. This camera is doing great as a second set of eyes on the kids in their play area.
