Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mastadruma WIFI camera with cell phone control for at home peace of mind.
This WIFI camera is a nice tool for your home or business. You are able to configure it to your iPhone or Android device to real-time monitor the camera and audio. The camera has a color and night vision automatic mode that it sets to upon light detection. You can choose it to trigger an alarm if something moves past the lens. You are able to move the camera left and right/up or down, however, the zoom feature doesn't seem to work on this model. The App is very limited and seems quite rushed when the GUI was developed. The installation was rather lengthy and required the reboot of my router and phone a few times. Once connected over my home WIFI network, the camera was easy to use. The delay from the command on the app to what you actually see is minimal. The picture quality is very nice. I was able to set this camera up and go to work, while monitoring my dog to make sure she was not misbehaving. I attached a picture that I grabbed from my iPhone. Overall, I give this camera a review of average.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by austinlightpollution Nice but vary hard
Camera was vary hard to install I know lots about PC but program was as bad as can be instructions were no help seems the DVD had problems and there are many biases with this too numerous to list but here is what I consider top
1 Don't own a router? You cannot use this camera
2 PC owner? It is vary complicated install my problem I was unable to use my PC program to run the software for cam corrupt software maybe it was isolated case? where I got bad copy of software? but at this point my PC rejects it and cannot install it or reinstall it or uninstall it.....
People in who have access to internet but not router cannot use these cams
Many other issues...... Who can who cannot
In the photo I did get it to work with help of tec help my PC rejected the software but my droid works the cams nicely but have to be 100 feet from my router to get it to work but this is learning curve for me dispite a professional Imaging background most difficult thing ever for my to date working on my droid but limitations

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by astonman It's Ok But There Are Better Options
I tried this DIY wireless/wired IP camera for over a week before writing this review. I wanted to give adequate time to see if my initial impression would change or remain the same.
Along with the camera you get a CAT 5E Ethernet cable, the software disk, an optional mounting stand and hardware, a power cable, and a quick start guide. The initial set up was fairly easy and requires connecting the camera to your router, plugging in the power, and downloading the app for iOS or Android. With the app I scanned the QR code on the camera and the app did the rest. Switching to WiFi took a few tries but it worked. After a week of use here are the pros and cons as I see them...
Fairly easy set up
Can record to SD card which means no fees for cloud recording
Can pan and tilt
Tons of options (motion detect, alarm connection, 2-way talk, etc)
Surprisingly good picture quality
Cheap build quality
Poorly designed app
WiFi viewing was hit and miss for me (and I have an excellent router)
Pan and tilt was jerky and a pain to use
This IP camera is decent but at it's current price point, there are other cameras that are easier to use and of better quality.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mark If I can set it up........anyone can do it!
I'm not great with computers,had my son help me set it up. Took about two hours to install but we were unable to connect to my I-phone. Called customer support, best customer support I have ever had! Joe and Michael were great, ten minutes all problems were resolved! Love my camera!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by stumped1 poor software
Software was far too complicated, and hard to use. Playback was also complicated and unintuitive.
Contacted tech support twice (who were easy to get ahold of, and helpful as they could be), but couldn't help with a poor product. Poor software design.
Easily returned the product directly to store for refund.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by none The 3 easy steps are really more like 24 steps
Have been trying to set my camera up for weeks. Can't get passed my router password. Don't understand why the camera will not auto recognize the router like other devices.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GoBucks1974 Great live view when it works
The actual live view from the camera was great, even at night. It is small, compact and easy to mount. However, because of the way it connects to the internet, it worked for 2 days and then would be down for 2 days. After 2 hours on the phone with my internet provider and 45 min on the phone with the tech guy from the camera manufacturer, we called it quits. We returned the cameras to the store for a full refund. We have purchased a totally different system from a different security camera company instead.
