    Had to send this one back as the camera was out of focus down the left-hand side of the picture. I replaced it with another, but very slightly higher spec camera (fi9831p) that works perfectly well. This seems to be a trait with the foscam cameras as there very good for how much they cost but they could do with tightening up their quality control department.

      Great camera, software needs more work. I’ve had this camera for over three months now and, given the price, i am very happy with it. Like some other reviewers i have the camera pointing through an external window. There are problems with external window reflections in bright sunlight and with rain drops in poor weather, but the camera does a good job, even though it is designed as an indoor camera. It has even captured the odd magpie and wood pigeon mid-flight via motion detection. Given the price and capabilities of the camera, it deserves five stars. However, the software lets the overall package down. It took me about a week to tweak the software settings and get the camera working how i wanted it to work. I know that i am not using it for its intended purpose but some of the software settings were a bit vague and unintuitive, even for basic operations. Therefore the software only gets three stars.

    Albert ferman: i had issues with cameras and repeater. Albert ferman:i had issues with cameras and repeater setup from day one and struggled to get technical support to rectify. After giving up for a few months. I approached foscam again for support 05/06/15 and the technician took full ownership of the problem and worked relentlessly to rectify. So i now expect to have fully functioning equipment. May just convince me to source more foscam product.

    Read first before you buy. . I have the sd version of this camera and has worked flawlessly for nearly 3 years then it failed. So i thought i would upgrade to a hd version which was a big mistake. This model fi9821w v2 has several issues. I had this camera for 2 weeks and had to return it. The mic is unusable due to the popping / crackling noise which if you google it is a big problem with this camera. The second problem was when it switched from day mode to ir mode and back again i was left with a very purple hue on the picture making it unusable in the daytime which required a reboot to fix it every time. ( i think this was a faulty camera with the ir problem as its rarely mentioned on a google search)i upgraded to the latest firmware and tried with both wifi and a wired connection which made no difference. If your not going to use the audio side then this camera is good for the money is ok. The picture quality was good and the ddns works very well.

      Wifi works well even though i placed it in an area where my ipad can’t get a signal. Excellent app for ios and software for pc is good.

        Very good quality video and sound, but a bit fiddly to set up. I have five other ipcams (mostly foscam f18910w) so am very familiar with how to set them up, but this one was a problem. For some reason, windows 7 kept refusing to install the activex control, and wouldn’t let me push it. Eventually it worked, but i’m really not sure why – i don’t think i did anything different, but suddenly it worked.

    Imaging wasn’t quite as sharp as i was expecting but more than adequate for most needs. I found it easy to set up on my wired network, giving it a static ip and also on my wi-fi. As the camera would spend most of it’s time looking out through a window i turned off the infra-red as it bounces back from the glass and whites-out the image. Downloading the android app for my phone allowed me, after setting it up, to view and control my camera from anywhere. A bonus is the supplied mounting bracket. I like the camera and will be looking to buy another with higher resolution and zoom. Edit:with reference to my comment above about image sharpness. I discovered that the serrated ring holding the lens could be carefully turned a small amount, adjusting the focus of the camera and therefore, in my case achieving a sharper image. I can find no mention of this in the manual so i guess it’s not officially sanctioned so take care.
