F19928P review without repeating all the other good information you can read from other reviewers.
I just received this Foscam camera yesterday. While I haven’t mounted this yet, I have been preparing for it for quite sometime. I have purchased many Foscam cameras over the years. I have over 15 total in two homes. Like other reviewers, this is a step up from everything that Foscam has done. In this price range, this is a good buy. There are plenty of other cameras that you can buy that have more features or have a better known name than Foscam, but for this price point I am very happy so far. I have mine set up with a POE splitter. I have seen questions and answer about POE and I want to answer the biggest question regarding that here. While it is not POE ready, it and any of your older Foscam cameras that have an ethernet port and a power port or dongle, can be set up to have power over ethernet. It required in my case a POE splitter that is 12V. This camera has a 12 volt power supply. So with a splitter you connect the ethernet cable coming from a POE switch to the splitter and the ethernet cable on the splitter to the ethernet dongle of the camera that is supplied. You could also use a POE injector that has the correct 12V capacity if you did not have a POE switch. Older cameras take a 5v splitter and you can buy several types on Amazon and another reviewer has discussed this. For those of you that want to mount this using your own junction box that is waterproof, I had found one on YouTube and found the parts after a long search. You will need a 6″x6″x4″ plastic junction box, a Heyco LTCG 1 NPT BLK 8.5 Split N/N (this is the waterproof theaded part that protects the wire cable and the cluster of other cables), a package of O-Ring Dash 124 Silicone 0.1in Pk25 from Grainger, I also bought hex nuts that go on the inside of the box. For the ethernet cable waterproofing I bought a six foot long Ultratite Empty conduit, 1/2 inch, with fittings from Lowes. I have included a picture. It is possible to run everything through the larger hole in the F19928P mount, but I chose to use a junction box for easy access to my splitter and cables.
Sturdy little Camera, Fit my needs very well.
I have had this for a few days but I have been testing it quite extensively. Here is what I have discovered.
Foscam 9928 a very nice camera!
A huge ip camera that has great reviews on Youtube, so I got one. It was supereasy to connect using ethernet cable following the instructions manual included in the box. However, I wanted to use only wifi, so called the Help line for tech support, number shown on a card in the product box. Within a short time, tech support guy Chris had it working flawlessly on wifi, provided info so I could set it up on blue iris and an ip viewer app on my cellphone. Very happy now. Will recommend this company as this now my 4th camera from Foscam (see my previous reviews over past years), and have had success with them all. No wonder I keep buying more, huh.
Great PTZ camera
Great security camera. Much bigger in person and a very sturdy piece of hardware. The video stream is very clear during the day and at night. When I first installed it there was a audible buzzing sound in the video stream. I contacted Foscam support and JR Roberto advised me to install the newly released firmware update and that got rid of the buzzing sound. One thing I am not happy with is that if you ever have to perform a hard reset on the camera you can only do it by getting up on a ladder and unscrewing the front to access the reset button. The FI9900p camera had the hard reset button attached to the cords so it was easy to reset them as needed since they were connected to power sources inside the house. Hopefully I won’t have to do a hard reset on this one. Overall very happy with this camera so far, it has been much more reliable than the FI9900p (the camera it replaced).
Great camera, but it has significant flaws
This is a 5 star camera in many aspects. Quality of build, image quality, GUI interface, etc.
