Nice camera but has it’s flaws.
I do like this camera, but it does have it’s minor flaws. First, and the biggest for me is what you read on some of the other reviews. The maximum upward tilt is not very good. I suspect they should mount the camera further down and put a deeper dome. I have mine mounted way up high on a gabled side of my house and even that isn’t high enough to raise the camera as high as I would like. Daytime image is spectacular, night time, not so perfect. It casts strange reflections inside the dome. I think next I will try one of the domeless outdoor cameras. I will say this one is nicely built. Not plastic but appears to be cast aluminum. Ours is hard wired so I cannot comment on the wireless quality.
How to hide the cables!
People are complaining it doesn’t tilt to 90 degree to see horizon but I really don’t see that problem. I mounted just under the porch ceiling and I can definitely see ‘above’ the horizon line than my camera as long as it is set to 960p mode which shows more top and bottom areas than 720p. And this camera has much stronger wireless reception than my indoor Foscam camera which had zero signal at the same location. Yes when zoomed in, it doesn’t show the highest portion but that’s not a big deal. Actually my biggest concern before purchasing this camera was how to hide all these cables as I didn’t want to make a big hole on the wall or use a separate ugly electric box so I came up with an idea as attached pic. I made my own box and attached the camera on it, keeping it clean look while hiding all the cables inside. I made this with some scrap pieces of wood and paint that I already had and used two ‘L’ shape brackets only on the top. I made it taller so that I would have enough room to store all the cables including power adaptor & left over extension cord. So only cable coming out of this box is the extension cord going to the power outlet.
Great visuals, but the audio is non-existent
Great product, and the extra money spent for pantilt and optical zoom is worth it. Installation is pretty easy, and it comes with a license for Blue Iris, which is a program you can use to view the output of the camera. You can see from the photos I’ve added just how awesome the optical zoom is. First image is zoomed all the way out, second is zoomed all the way in. There are a few things I have to ding it on, though.
Decent outdoor option- NEEDS BROWSER PLUGIN UPDATE TO WORK
If you really need the dome style that can pan/tilt for outdoor use, it’s a decent option. At $250, I think it could be much cheaper. You’re honestly just getting a dome camera in an outdoor casing with a wall mount. I’d consider a typical dome camera under an eve for weather protection for cheaper.
A bargain for the DIYers out there!
Despite lack of support from the company on this product, I found I was able to configure and use this camera for the job I had in mind. What’s more, is I was told by several vendors around my hometown that a similarly capable camera would cost ten times what this one does. For the DIY installation, this camera can’t be beat for it’s functionality and price.
