Rated 5 out of 5Â by ClaireS Peace of mind!
Having these cameras in my living room give me the greatest peace of mind. I can check in on my dogs through out the day to make sure all is well. OR I can check on them and see when they have destroyed things! The color (as you can see in the attached picture) does vary by the amount of light in the room. I have the blinds closed and the tv on. That is the only light in the room.
Very easy to set up. I am able to access the picture from work on a PC, from another room in the house or even on my smart phone. I can use a Windows, Android or Iphone to view the image. I also like the ability to change the view remotely.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by percomtek Great afforable network IP camera
The price for the camera is a pretty good. Set up is pretty straight forward with a little technical know how. They also have how-to videos on their website. You can find Foscam vids on YouTube. The model I bought (FI8910) came with DDNS (free) so you can watch your camera over the internet in less than 30 minutes. I've tried the camera apps on an iPod and android tablet. They are OK but I prefer a full web browser. With IE you get more features enabled even though I like Firefox. Pan/Tilt, Night vision, record and 2-way audio. Only thing missing is a Zoom feature - but for the price I'm very happy. I bought two : )

Rated 3 out of 5Â by mo168lee not easy to set up. camera shutter too slow to catch movement.
The set up was not very easy. The instruction in the enclosed manual and on-line video is not very accurate. I found the instruction in the enclosed CD is much easier to follow. Once I get the camera up and running it works fine both in day time and night vision mode.
Pros: records short video when motion is detected. Sends out 6 shots of photos when motion is detected. Able to control pan & tilt remotely. two way audio.
Cons: There are a few issues which I would like to point out for other potential buyers:
1. When lighting condition in the room changes, the camera will sent out an e-mail notification which doesn't bother me, but might be annoying for some.
2. the camera shutter is too slow to capture movement. So the image is blurred if a person walks by quickly.
3. The iPhone App doesn't work outside of my home network. I found a 3rd party app (free) which works much better.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by jfr1908 Excellent camera for phone, internet and home network!
I love this camera!
I was able to set it up to view on my home network, over the internet from anywhere in the world and on my phone! I have an Android phone but I have also viewed it on my iPad and an iPhone. I thought the setup was very easy. It works quite well. I can even Pan and Tilt using my phone!! With the built in webserver you don't need to install anything to view it from the internet. This is EXACTLY what I was looking for.
The only CON is no zoom feature....at least I have not found one yet.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by JJTech Donât count on technical support!
First of all you can sometimes wait an hour for them to pick up the phone. Itâs off shore âsupportâ so itâs very, very difficult to understand each other much less solve your problem.
If you are pretty technical, you should be able to do it yourself with the help of YouTube videos.
Equipment wise, seems to be OK. Software, not the greatest. It isnât very user friendly. The camera may take a while to show in their âIP Camera Toolâ window and then quickly disappear. One of the two Foscam cameras that we bought keeps going off line.
