how long does this record for

Asked by: dizzy
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.

Wireless 720p Indoor Plug and Play IP Video Surveillance Camera - White is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Foscam I will try to explain the camera as best as i could. I will ask Questions that you may have following with answers. 1. is it easy to install (is it DIY friendly)? Well if you are limited with networking or do not know much it is not for DIY. you will have to be an network wiz in order to set up this camera to your network. 2. is there an hellp by tech support? Yas you will get the card with the camera free tech support for installation even if they have to enter your computer remotely it is free for first two years which make easier for people that do not have experience in networking. (luckily i did not have to use that card even that took me 5h on first day and another 3h on second day but now is working) the video Hi quality? Yas it is very decent i can recognize my neighbor on the street about 60ft but he is familiar to me. 4. do i need good phone? yas if your phone is older than 4 years it will give you a hard time and you will be frustrated with that said you will trowe all on camera where camera is working fine. 5. can i set up motion detect recording? yas but works only on whole view of camera you can"t select just certain area. 6. where do i record my videos? you can buy an cloud service from them and store offsite videos, you can record videos on your phone, or you can use your old desktop and designate for that somewhere hidden in your home either way protect with the password, also you can record directly onto micro SD card on camera. overall the quality of camera is good and i will use to monitor my front door for ups and other deliveries.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from potentially great camera made useless by stupid firmware I was all set to give this camera a rave review, and then the manufacturer did something that makes it useless. First the good: Image quality is superb, at any light level. In daylight the color is perfect, the image is crisp and sharp, and there's very little noticeable distortion even near the edges. Even the B/W image with the camera's built-in IR illumination is better than I've ever seen before. The IR filter slips in and out exactly when it should, so image quality is always fantastic. WiFi performance is also superb, the best I've ever seen in an IP camera, and I've used lots of them. I intentionally put it in the worse possible location: at the far end of my garage, where the signal has to go through so many walls, chimneys, etc--even cars!--that I don't have the energy to count them all. This camera never drops its WiFi connection, video frames are never skipped, and response to pan/tilt commands is instantaneous. I always try this test with WiFi cameras, and this is the first one that even stayed connected for more than a few minutes. Setup couldn't be easier, with either a smartphone app or a the web interface from a PC. It can be done without ever connecting an ethernet cable to it--something I'd never encountered before. Even someone who knows nothing technical about networking could do it, which is another first for me. Next the weird: This camera talks! I had a scare in the beginning, because plugged in its power and then went into the next room. A minute or two later I thought heard someone talking, in a soft, conversational voice, barely loud enough to hear, and it was over before I could even fully believe I'd heard it. Then a few minutes later I heard the same voice again, but talking longer, so I KNEW I'd heard it this time. I also could tell that it was coming from inside the house, not outside. I was alone, the house was completely quiet and still (no radio, TV, etc), and it freaked me out! The softness and the conversational, almost intimate tone of the voice made it especially creepy, sort of like the way HAL the homicidal computer talks to Dave in 2001. It turns out that the camera goes through some startup exercises (tilt, pan, etc, which all such cameras do, so its moving around on its own didn't faze me), and then it says "Hello. Foscam." A few minutes later it says (no more exact quotations), depending on whether you have an active ethernet cable connected, either that it has successfully made a wired connection or that it's ready for its WiFi setup. All this in a soft, very human, only slightly Chinese-accented female voice. (It may say other things in other situations, but that's all I've heard so far.) After I got over the initial scare, I thought it was sort of neat—a camera with personality. But I soon discovered that any time the camera's power cycles off and back on it goes through the same routine. If you were using it as a baby monitor, or in a covert location for security, having it announce its presence every time it comes on might not be welcome. I decided to see if there was any way to disable that feature, and that's when I crashed head-first into the deal-breaker: the moronic browser-plugin/firmware scheme that quickly makes the camera unusable. The smartphone app provides no access to the camera's internal configuration, only to its pan/tilt, image manipulation and recording functions. To change anything AT ALL about its configuration--even something as simple and important as turning its IR illuminators off and on--you must use the web interface from a PC. First, it ONLY works with Internet Explorer, not Firefox, not Google Chrome, not Microsoft's new Edge for Win10. It's not the only IP camera that's true about, but everything else about this camera seems so cutting-edge that that ancient IE-only restriction is baffling and inexcusable. Second (and this is the killer) it will not allow you to log in until it is running the browser plugin it needs in order to display live video, even though that plugin is totally unnecessary when only accessing the camera's configuration. But no plugin, no access--AT ALL. The first time I connected via the web interface (which I had to do in order to set up the network configuration I need) everything went great. I hardly noticed when it said I needed to install the plugin, it installed in a few seconds, and I was right where I needed to be. But when I tried to connect via the web interface the second time, to see if I could disable the automatic talking, I entered my user name and password, and immediately a box popped up saying, "Please relogin after installing the plugins." I had installed the plugin the first time, but I humored it and uninstalled then reinstalled it. No good. Same brick-wall message. Long story short: I tried EVERYTHING, and there is no way to get past this brick wall. I searched for that message online, and I got hundreds of hits. Foscam customers all over the world are stuck exactly where I am, and the company seems not to care. They're still selling cameras, and THAT is what they care about. From the first few threads I read, I got the general idea that the problem is in the weirdly interdependent and arcane way Foscam manages the camera's firmware and the browser plugin, so that if they somehow get out of sync with each other you're stuck not only at a brick wall but with a brick in the form of a camera. You can't get into the camera's configuration until you change its firmware, but you can't change the firmware because you can't get into the camera's configuration. It's a Catch-22. So onto the brick-pile this camera goes, and I'd advise ANYBODY who's thinking about paying money for this camera not to do it. Avoid it like the plague. That's a shame, because it's an extraordinarily good camera made completely useless by very, VERY stupid software management.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent camera, but very frustrating setup/software experience I was looking for a WiFi camera that could record to a local SD card, and then would allow me to play back images and video when motion triggered, which is why I tested this Foscam FI9821P camera. However, I had very poor luck with getting this camera set up the way I needed it. I have no complaints with the quality of the camera (the image quality and basic functions seem fine), but getting it connected and getting it to record was a different issue. First off, I had a horrible time getting this to connect to my WiFi network, and I have a fair amount of experience at this, having successfully connected a couple dozen devices to it including two other webcams. I normally lock my network to MAC addresses for extra security, but even after turning that off I was never able to get the iPhone Foscam app to configure the camera via WiFi. (It's supposed to be as simple as scanning a QR code with your phone, but that just never worked for me.) I finally installed the Foscam Client software on my computer and hooked up to the camera via a wired Ethernet cable. This allowed me to enter my WiFi password and connect to the camera via WiFi, but as soon as I locked my WiFi back down to MAC, I lost access. I finally found out that the MAC both printed on the unit and reported via the Foscam software is the hardwire Ethernet MAC (even when the camera is connected via WiFi). By studying the connected device MAC addresses on my router I was finally able to figure out what unidentified MAC went with this camera, so now I can connect to it with my restricted MAC list, but it shouldn't be this hard to set up. Once I got it connected, the iPhone app seems to have virtually no controls as to recording (where does it record, for how long, etc.). The PC software has a few more controls, but despite the fact that it looks like it is set up to record to the SD card, I'm only getting snapshot images to there and no actual video recordings from motion detection. I can manually take pictures and videos with the app, but that seems to be all. I also have found no way to play back anything on the SD card other than by removing it from the camera and placing it into my computer. Foscam does offer to let you call them for technical support, and in theory they will even do remote setup of your camera for you. This sounds nice, but when I tried to call in there seemed to be no separate category for setup (it all goes to technical support), and the predicted wait time was 34 minutes before I could speak with anyone. I didn't have that long to wait on hold. So if you can get this camera set up and configured as you want it, it may work great for you. But I've decided it's not worth the hassle for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good WiFi camera This wireless camera was very easy to set up - just download the Foscam app from the app store, scan the QR code, enter your WiFi details, and you're up and running. The camera is noted to support 802.11n, but I was very disappointed to find that this camera only suppports the 2.4Ghz band; so my first attempts at setting up the WiFi failed until I realized this. It and my house would greatly benefit from the 5GHz band with the number of devices we have on WiFi. I was pleased to find that the camera is well-supported in TinyCam Monitor, even supporting pan and tilt from that app. This allows me to use many cameras from multiple vendors in a single app.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great security camera with easy to use software - FINALLY! I have purchased ip cameras in the past and found that the setup has always been tedious and complicated. I got this camera set up on my Mac in about 5 minutes, even without having wps on my router. Video and image capture is great when viewing it online on a computer. The new Foscam App is also really easy to use on my iphone. I was viewing my dog within minutes using the QR code on the back to pair the camera. I will definitely be looking to pickup a couple more for friends and family for the holidays.
