F18905W My second purchase
on 11 February 2013
I originally purchased the indoor F18910W a few days ago and was so pleased with it that I have now purchased the F18905W outdoor cam. As with my previous F18910W review, this was simple to set up as far as wifi but then I needed the telephone/computer access help of Foscam. This was much quicker this time as it was the same person that helped me before. As with just about every other review the fixing bracket is just about useless due to the fact that this outdoor cam is much heavier and when mounted, it is off centre and the overhang puts a lot of leaverage on the very weak ball clamp of the bracket ( I wonder when Foscam will get the message!!). Having said this the rest of the product is superb and works fine with good night view, up to point i.e. the persons image at night seems over exposed. I will need to see what tweaks I can do on the settings unless anyone has any experience of this??
One other thing that may require that I resite the camera is that the exhaust from my house boiler blows white fumes in front of the camera which triggers the movement detection, so either I duct the fumes away or move the cam, so beware.
Having operated the camera for 2 days there is an issue with the night viewing in that the IR will pick up the exhaust from my boiler which shows as grey billowing vapour (not visible during the day. This triggers the motion detection. I have now ducted the flue away from the camera. Also rain seems to get picked up in the IR night mode which again triggers the motion detector. Other than this the camera works fine and I am very pleased with the product.
