Functions well but remote picture high-quality mediocre making use of foscam application. This was acquired to observe our pet cat when absent from the home. As these, it didn’t need to have to be fancy or prime good quality but i was looking for reliability. The unit i acquired from amazon should have been a person that had been sitting on the shelf for a appreciable time the software was pretty out of date and demanded more than an hour to bring it up to day. This procedure was not as straightforward as you might believe either as it required multiple downloads of the program and each a single had to be used in turn. There was no ‘latest’ software package that could be applied just the after. The browser plug-in (when jogging on windows) has been replaced by a common ‘exe’ file which operates just fine. The android foscam application for my mobile cellular phone and tablet each hook up reliably and present a affordable (but not wonderful high-quality) photograph. The panning does perform well even though after you get the knack of it and the infra-pink lights can be either instantly or manually switched on. A improved picture is presented by the ip cam viewer simple from the android play shop.

Solved the dilemma that i had he was incredibly great. Aldrin britto solved the problem that i had he was really good.

A respectable camera for the value you fork out. I not long ago obtained the fi9821p, as i am not a very tecchie particular person and i preferred a cctv that was as consumer helpful as doable, to just plug in and play. Perfectly, i hit on a couple snags, words like: smtp, ssid, port forwarding, arrived up in the instruction guide and i imagined: wtf???. If i never sort this out it’s likely back to the manufacturer.I was emotion pretty confused. Comi identified some of the information, but nevertheless experienced a several problems logging in. Anyhow, i checked out the aid page and contacted the fantastic people at foscam technical assistance (produced positive i applied my pre-paid global contacting card, as to get in touch with the us can expense a bit), helped entire the logging in procedure and established up the e-mail notification procedure, a lot of thanks walter. Now i am a happy bunnythe camera alone, does have a bit of a time lag, but as prolonged as it does what i have compensated for – which it does, so it fits me wonderful. Note to foscam: remember to put some of your directions in layman’s language, this sort of as the beneath.

Foscam FI9821P Plug and Play HD 1280 x 720p H.264 Wireless/Wired Pan/Tilt IP Camera – 26ft Night Vision and 2.8mm Lens (70° Viewing Angle) (White) : Good but not suitable for my requirements due to noise. The item was fairly easy to setup. I have 4 d link ip cameras all of which work with ease. My intention was to try a ptz camera and thought i would try a different manufacturer as it was cheaper. The reviews claimed it was quiet and the motion smooth. I would suggest that this would do the job adequately if neither of those points are an issue. Retailer was quick to accept my return and refund accordingly. I would buy from this retailer again but the product failed my expectations.

    A decent camera for the price you pay. I recently purchased the fi9821p, as i am not a very tecchie person and i wanted a cctv that was as user friendly as possible, to just plug in and play. Well, i hit on a few snags, words like: smtp, ssid, port forwarding, came up in the instruction manual and i thought: wtf???. If i don’t sort this out it’s going back to the manufacturer.I was feeling very confused. Comi found some of the information, but still had a few issues logging in. Anyhow, i checked out the support page and contacted the good folks at foscam technical support (made sure i used my pre-paid international calling card, as to contact the us can cost a bit), helped complete the logging in process and set up the email notification process, many thanks walter. Now i am a happy bunnythe camera itself, does have a bit of a time lag, but as long as it does what i’ve paid for – which it does, so it suits me fine.

      If this was the plug and play version, i would of sent the hard version back. Pros: you can change position, the infrared light can be controlled remotely and you can store video on an sd card on the device and control remotely. Cons: insanely frustrating software, everything i. Setting to record on sd card needed a forum visit. If you change any of the most basic setting it feels like you need to restart for everything (but it doesn’t tell you), stuff just won’t work. The reason i purchased this camera is because we sometimes get the off mouse in the attic and this had motion detection and an ir i can turn off. I opted for this version because after looking at the setup videos playing with router settings, i just knew i’d probably get this to work and every other wireless device would probably stop working. So i set everything up, which took ages, i realised only after a while that even after changing settings a reboot was often needed. A classic example of a thing i found frustrating was setting it up to record after movement was detected.

    Works well but remote picture quality mediocre using foscam app. This was bought to monitor our pet cat when away from the house. As such, it didn’t need to be fancy or top quality but i was looking for reliability. The unit i acquired from amazon must have been one that had been sitting on the shelf for a considerable time; the software was very out of date and required over an hour to bring it up to date. This process was not as straightforward as you might think either as it required multiple downloads of the software and each one had to be applied in turn. There was no ‘latest’ software that could be applied just the once. The browser plug-in (when running on windows) has been replaced by a universal “exe” file which works just fine. The android foscam app for my mobile phone and tablet both connect reliably and provide a reasonable (but not great quality) picture. The panning does work well though once you get the knack of it and the infra-red lights can be either automatically or manually switched on. A better image is provided by the ip cam viewer basic from the android play store.

    Great picture quality let down by poor reliability. This is the second foscam camera i’ve purchased. The first was the fi9821w v2 which works brilliantly. I decided to get this one which is meant to be a step up with the plug and play facility. Although setting it up was much easier with this camera, the overall usability has been very average to poor. The biggest problem i found was playing back recording using an sd card. It seems to freeze up when searching, keeps coming up with a timeout message and has been generally very unreliable in playback. It may be a firmware update is required but looking at the foscam forums, a number of others are experiencing similar problems. It’s a shame because the pc picture quality is excellent and viewing it on mobile devices is also very good. I just wish foscam would improve their firmware/software to make it more reliable and simple to use.
