So If I hook this up to my network, will I be able to monitor the feed in real time when I am away from the house?

Stupid should hurt.

I'm not only tired but anything but a techie.

For purposes of detecting home intrustion, how would this item be compared, positive and negative, to the Brite Line electricity line cameras featured in Woot plus under regular woot?

I'm wondering if each has a motion detector in the camera? And if it actually notifies your phone if there is an intrusion which you can then view? I am interested in protecton and notification not taped images of who entered my house which I will review laer.

I'm sure you bright techy folks will also have other comparisons to offer that I wouldn't even think of regarding capablities and performance.

From their website:
SD Card Recording

Feel comfort knowing you can check on your property when you’re not there. This wireless IP camera has an embedded SD card slot that can support a micro SD card up to 64GB. You have the option to continuously record, motion detected record or set a schedule to only record during certain times of the day.

Free Zviewer PC Software & Email Notifications

The free Zviewer PC Software is an easy to use solution that can record the footage from your camera to your computer. This software makes it simple to be able to view, record, and playback video from your camera. With this software you can even send email notification to your e-mail or mobile phone when motion automatically triggers video recording

Those Amazon reviews aren't very helpful. It devolved into a flamewar.

I bought 2 of these back when they were $99 on Woot. I'm somewhat a techie but these still are somewhat difficult to setup. I still can't get the two of them to display on on the iPhone software they give you. Works great with one though. I have both of them setup at a vacation home. One looking out at the view and the other on the inside for potential thiefs. The best thing is that you can set them up with motion detection that will either record and/or send a picture by email to you. Even though they are 720, I am not impressed at all with the quality of the picture. The picture gets blurry the farther you get from it (> 20 feet) and don't expect to get a clear image in the email you are sent either. A 3 star by amazon standard is about right.

BTW, as a monitor for a baby, you can set it up on your phone and they will work from any location. If you are using wifi in a home they are best, but OK across the internet also.

Yes, works pretty good across the internet.

I notice your video was at night, and of stuff that is outside - but this is an indoor camera. How do you have it set up? I was under the impression that the IR would reflect and flood the camera if you tried to do night time shots through a window.

Did you get your van back and did they catch the scumbags?

does this connect wirelessly to my wireless router or do you have to hook up (wired - RJ45)directly to my router/modem?

thanks,

The fact that this camera supports ONVIF at this price is pretty awesome. This compatibility is really hard to find in this price range and opens up a lot of flexibility for program/VMS usage, like Milestone or Genetec. Personally, I like Milestone X-Protect Go for a full-featured free selection.

It does wireless, but wired is better. normally you never notice packet loss on WiFi because most everything you do is TCP, but with streaming cameras video is often streamed UDP so a lost/dropped packet is really lost which can cause skipped video frames. Although, in a home environment this isn't really a big deal.

No card included. That appears to be an add-on specifically by that 3rd party vendor, not Zmodo.

Guess it won't work for me, since I've got a BlackBerry phone.

I bought one of these recently and am very disappointed.

If you can get it consistently up on your wi-fi, the picture is pretty good. However, I bought it as a baby monitor and I'd say about 95% or more of the time, I cannot get access to it on our wi-fi network from my iPhone or iPad. It just says "Camera Offline". I've tried it from various places in the house and don't have any issues doing other wi-fi access with my mobile devices. If I reboot the camera, then I may be able to get access the first time, but after that, it's back to being offline. So, it's effectively useless to me as a monitor.

But, we've been having an issue with an animal leaving presents in our backyard so we decided to try to use the recording capabilities to catch the animal in the act and find out what it was. Putting it up against a window does not work due to the reflection from the camera itself. So, we mounted it outside (it was a nice night) and aimed it in the problem area. And night time is apparently too dark for it. It seems to have detected motion because there were recordings on the card....only they were completely black....well, until the sun came up.

It's going in the e-waste bin for us.

Yeah, but there are some good things about it, like I can drop it on the floor without bricking it, it has excellent call quality, standard charging port, microSDHC slot, can play any mp3 file (and I have 30gb worth of those), and most of all, it has a real keyboard. If iphone had half of those things, I might've considered it. I don't really use too many apps anyway, mainly just weather for my work.

Camera content: I used a "motion-sensing" app on my computer about 15 years ago. It simply used alteration of pixels in a user-specified area as a passive motion sensor and trigger for emailing pics of what was going on. It was not camera-specific; IOW, I could hook up my old video camera to it and it worked. The software was a little buggy, but hey, it was 15 years ago. There should be some nice freeware apps by now that would work like that, with any camera...

Guess again. There are BlackBerry apps that work with this camera, like this one.

Has anyone notice how much heat they generate? I also noticed mine "clicking" when setting it up - seemed odd to me.

I had them all working just fine, viewed it on my Android, Tablet and PC and then it said User Name / Password incorrect - made no sense.

Guess its time for a call to the help desk or return them.

Works fine as long as it is plug directly into the router. Not much use that way. No solutions on their web site. Calling tech support Monday.

This is not the same unit as the link on Amazon. The Amazon product includes a 16GB SD Card which this does not have.
