Answer: 
This depends on the size of the Micro SD card used (max is 32GB). Like wise, the mfg gives you up to 4 hours of free online storage as well. I hope this helps.

Answer: 
This unit will hold an SD Card up to 32G. Depending on the frame rate (720 at 30/60) it will record from 4 - 8 hours. The fewer frames per second will increase the amount of recording space rather than time. This is just an estimate based on the size of the SD card that it will hold.

Answer: 
I haven't hit a limit, but truthfully I haven't tried any recordings longer than two minutes. The camera has no internal storage -- you must record to a smartphone or similar device. I would imagine that the device capacity is the limiting factor.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not the easiset wifi webcam to work with, good picture but a pain to set up We have a number of interior and exterior security cameras around out home and decided to try out this Foscam 720p Wifi camera with the pan/tilt feature. The picture quality is good, however the set up is a pain in the neck, particularly if you have multiple wifi routers and want to move it from one router to another. I was also disappointed that I couldn't stream the video it captures to the existing cloud video service I subscribe to and instead have to subscribe to the Foscam service if I want the events to be captured for subsequent review. If you are building your own security system, there are probably more flexible options available. When we first received the camera, we decided to test it out and connected it to one of our home wifi routers without any problem. This picture quality is good, there are both PC and Android/Apple apps and it connects quite easily following the instructions in the quick start guide (download the app, connect your phone to your home wifi system and capture the QR code on the base of the webcam). The PC and mobile apps allow you to remotely control the pan/tilt of the camera and also switch infrared on/off. You can capture pictures and videos remotely. I did like the ease with which you can set up a schedule to deactivate the motion sensor so that you can stop the camera sending alerts in the evenings or at weekends when you are home. Where it became problematic was when we decided to move it to a different wifi router in our home. When you first install the router, it 'binds' itself you your home wifi router, When you want to move it to a different router, you have to make it forget the previous router. The only way you can do this is to hit the 'reset' button on the base of the camera. While the audio from the webcam indicated the reset had been successful, it would not connect to the new AT&T U-Verse wifi router. After several unsuccessful attempts with the app and the new router to add the camera, we resorted to connecting the camera using the cable. At this point, we were able to connect the camera to the router and then using the User Interface, we were able to set the wifi router up so we could use the camera on the new server wirelessly. In all honesty, a complete pain in the neck and about an hour of wasted time for something that should have taken about 10 minutes max. The other aspect of the camera I didn't like was that it will not record motion/audio activated events without subscribing to Foscam's cloud service. I already have a cloud service and no matter how many ways I tried, I couldn't get my cloud service connected to the Foscam camera. I don't want to have multiple cloud accounts/apps to monitor the camera events and decided not to subscribe to the Foscam cloud service. Without the subscription, the camera will still send alerts to the phone app as long as you have the phone app 'active' on your phone or tablet. I find this quite annoying which is why I was disappointed I couldn't connect the camera to my existing service where I can review motion activated events when I want to and not each time I get a message. I also thought that the subscription rates for the Foscam cloud service were a little on the expensive side. I found the documentation was also inaccurate. For viewing the webcam using the Foscam PC app, the URL provided in their Quick Start Guide doesn't work. Just remove the HTTPS:// and use the www. instead and you'll be fine. I also had to install an executable as according to the message from the User Interface, Foscam won't work with 64 bit browsers like Internet Explorer or Firefox. If you are building out your own home security system like we are, there are other cameras available that have similar features but will give you the flexibility to connect them to your existing cloud monitoring service without trying to get you to buy their service instead.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy as 1-2-3 Probably the easiest camera installation I have ever done in my career. I admit I had already had the app downloaded for a different model of Foscam camera. This one was online and sending data in under 5 minutes with the quick start card and QR code decal scan. It has a clearer picture then my Snugcam and we are currently using it as a nanny cam in our nursery. The phone alerts are easy to set up. The 2 way audio is clear. and the night vision is very clear. March 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nice picture I installed this camera on the ceiling of my garage to point at the entry doors. It came with all the mounting hardware needed. The setup was pretty simple with the application on my phone. The video quality of the device is very good during the day and also in night time mode. The application on your mobile device allows you full control of the camera including pan and tilt. You can also install an SD card in the camera which will allow some storage. You can set the camera to automatically record or snap pictures when it detects motion. December 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great portable security camera Setting up the camera was a snap. Ver simple and set up in minutes. You don't need to be a tech genius. Adequate instructions provided. I use this for a piece of mind because of a few break ins in our area. At work I can check in to see what is going on in my house. If I'm expecting a package I point toward the front door so I know when my package arrives. I can even see my cat getting into my Christmas decorations from my office! The camera is somewhat discreet and mingles well with your decor November 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VERY COOL____Great Beginning camera,Nanny Cam,Babysitter, Etc.... WOW>>>> for the price of this camera an the features you receive it is really a great deal... As long as you have internet and a smart phone this system cant be beat. Right now I have the camera installed in my moms kitchen. She has a bad habit of leaving the stove on. Now I can check on her and the stove without having to go there and make her think I'm checking up on her. It gives me a lot of peace of mind, as well as being able to check security, and I can do it from anywhere in the world. I will be ordering a second camera so I can have both the front and back doors covered. It takes snapshots as well as video and can be set up to record to a cloud system. for a small monthly fee The pictures and video's are clear and sharp you can even set up a listen and talk with the 2 way intercom feature. This is a great buy and solid camera for a great price and I don't think you'll be disappointed.. December 29, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Camera, Good Technical Support The Foscam Wireless 720P Indoor IP Video Camera is a nice product. It does however have some compatibility issues with the Foscam plug-in and Chrome also the recommended Foscam app was not compatible with our LG android smart phones. Foscam does however have excellent technical service available to the customer and they offer free "remote installation" to the customer. With this remote access installation they had me up and running in less than 30 minutes. I have provided some photos and a short demo video of the camera in wireless operation via the Foscam console.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great little camera for security We recently had an attempted break in at our office complex. Fortunatly the office next door has a full security system in place and was alerted. I quickly set this camera up in the front office and have it set so that it scans the front door and large area outside as well as the entire front office. Now I can see when someone is snooping around after hours and on weekends. This camera was very easy to set up and easy instructions to connect to wifi and mobile app. I plan on getting a few more of these to connect together for a broader range of security. Highly recommend this camera. Affordable security with the 4 hours of cloud storage, two way audio and motion alert. April 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing picture quality and such an easy set up I recently made the change from Tenvis over to these Foscam cameras for a few differnet reason. I had so many problems with the Tenvis cameras and their apps disconnecting and when we went on vacation recently they quit working so I wasn't able to monitor our home which wasn't good at all. Plus the picture quality and color was so far off on the Tenvis that it was hard to see any details. Now that I have the Foscam I am thrilled with pretty much everything. The color is amazing and I have the cameras mounted on the inside of two windows. Since it has the ir cut, you can easily see through the windows especially at night. The Tenvis cameras were pretty much worthless after dark. I can also listen and speak through the app on my phone or iPad and I haven't had a single problem with them not working remotely and I don't even need to be on wifi to make it work. Sure, it's a data hog for my phone but I just check it really quick and then close the app down. Set up was so simple and there isn't any hassle with port forwarding or anything like that. The Tenvis cameras took hours to set up while these were up and running in under 15 minutes. They have many options to add them and clicking the QR code is the easiest. The app loads quickly too and you can control the camera from there. While my Tenvis camera made my grass look white the Foscam has true colors and is very clear. I did blur the side of the container that's parked in front of our house right now but everything else is a screen shot from the app in my iPad. I also love being able to use a memory card to store my video or photos. I haven't set mine up to automatically record yet but plan on doing that. What I really like is being able to easily see who's at our home. Both windows in the front of our home are in a bedroom and another room with a door so you have to go into those rooms to see the front of the house. Now I can launch the app and see when the mailman, UPS or anyone else is here. If you're trying to decide between the two brands spend the extra money and get the Foscam. In the long run you'll be happy you did and now I'll be selling my old ones in my garage sale. I hope you find this review helpful. October 28, 2015
