Rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for wide area surveillance Excellent, excellent picture quality. Great for wide area coverage. Has an 80 degree wide lens which gives a nice wide view if objects are reasonably close (30 to 50 feet). The pan & tilt works great, as well as night time mode. We tested this out for about a week for outside use (putting it inside in a window) and it worked great, but then decided to upgrade to the FI9826W to give a tighter view (70 degree width) along with the 3x zoom to get closer to our target area (about 75' to 100' feet away). The browser connection requires a plug-in, then works great. Another aspect of this camera is the connection setup to 3rd party camera software. It only uses RTSP (Real Time Streaming Protocol) for making the connection to software (we tried it with Vitamin D, iSpy and Blue Iris) and found that you can't an use a HTTP handshake (and only Blue Iris had it listed it as a camera to select from). The connection stream string is as follows: rtsp://[user][password]@IP-Address:88/videoMain (for the hi-res stream) rtsp://[user][password]@IP-Address:88/videoSub (for the low res stream) [user] and [password] are the user-id (defaults to admin) and password that you set up in the camera config. IP-Address:88 is the IP address on your LAN (usually and the port (defaults to 88). May 31, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Buy Dropcam Instead I fiddled for a week and was able to view a live feed using a free app. I fiddled unsuccessfully another week trying to connect to a cloud recording service and to enable motion detection e-mail alerts. I returned the foscam and purchased a dropcam. I was connected, recording on a cloud service in five minutes. Buy a Dropcam unless you enjoy technical challenges. November 7, 2014
