Amazing security camera
It is an amazing camera! The instruction is easy to follow to install the camera. It is very easy and simple to do it, even with me – a girl who knows very little about installing any thing like this. I can check my house through the camera with the Foscam apps on my phone when I am not at home. I am surprised with the quality of the video, even in the dark. The camera will dectect any motion in the range and send notifications to my phone. It makes me feel more secure. I will recommend the camera to my friends.
Was a good baby monitor, until the latest firmware update.
tech support is hit-or-miss.
Good camera, but needs a longer power cord.
I bought this camera for our second child’s room after having an older version for the first child’s room. The 720p video quality is very good and the IR emitter(s) do a good job as well. The updated software is also nice, though after initial setup, I’ll never use it again unless I change wireless networks.
Great as a baby monitor
We use this as a baby monitor and I absolutely love being able to check on my daughter from my phone, both for peace of mind before I go to bed each night and for perspective when we hear her call out to help us know whether or not she needs us to intervene or if she will self-resolve. Plus we can see all the crazy positions she sleeps in! I’m so accustomed to being able to peek in on her that it feels strange anytime we go on vacation and don’t have our camera monitor! My mom even downloaded the app on her phone so she can use the monitor when she babysits. We did opt to buy a cheap audio monitor as well, that way we don’t have to keep the app open on our phones all the time in order to listen for our daughter. When we hear her through the audio monitor, it prompts us to check on the camera.
Great little camera and easy to set up. Good value for the bucks.
Fun camera, easy to set up and has great picture quality. Allows for viewing my home from any internet connection. Can always see when a car comes into the neighborhood or when someone steps on the porch. Picks up movement and sound very well. Only down side is the IR going thru glass but that is stated. It would just be nice to be able to do that. Been playing with some external IR lights to cut the glare of the lights reflecting off the glass.
Very easy setup, very contained footprint
I bought this camera to monitor my kid. We recently got a toddler bed and wanted to be able to see whether the kid was going to take a dive or not. Very easy setup, very contained footprint, picture quality is acceptable (especially considering the price). The app is okay, it does the job but it gets a little heavy handed with the BUY OUR CLOUD STORAGE line. You’ll see what I mean when you download it. Not having the cloud storage doesn’t seem to impede usage at all.
