One handy installation guide,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wireless IP camera Pan/Tilt 2-ways Audio Mobile Viewing WEP/WPA/WAP2 wireless Wi-Fi Pan/Tilt internet IP camera day and night vision CCTV security monitor built-in microphone and speaker allow you to communicate with people directly support mobile phone viewing (Camera)
No matter how much I would like to give 5 stars for the price and the built quality; but the only 2 minuses (no zoom) and bad documentation do not allow me to give it 5 stars as it is not directed to the average user. No wonder some guys here gave it 1-2 stars that is 'cause they didn't manage to get it working and I don't blame them.
That said I still luv this handy little cam. Well worth the money, depending the use you want it. It can watch a whole room effectively if placed high but remember it has no zoom [UPDATE 28 JAN --> Not seen it myself but one guy that I helped told me that apparently there is an app on the iphone called ipcam which can ZOOM!! That's will be amazing but again I've not seen this with my own eyes]. Impressive infra-red as other people mentioned, I have to admit in pitch black and the image is P E R F E C T!
After 4-5 hours of tinkering I managed to get it going in Wireless Lan Mode and I accessed it successfully over the Internet with my mobile! It is a little gem for £40 you won't find any better. I totally disagree with one guy who says it loses wireless signal, tried it in a home with thick walls to withstand a 6,7 Richter quake and the camera NEVER LOST SIGNAL for over 2 years now!! And that is over 2 floors.
Someone else mentioned that he had to pay DYNDNS in order to access the camera over the Internet. That's absolute rubbish. You can use no-ip to set an account. You don't need DYNDNS.
Overall I'm really happy with my purchase and looking forward to discover more features. I have a 10 page file that I 've tried to upload through the 'video review' link here; but to no avail. Can someone in Amazon help me to upload my word file? It is a handy guide of how to install this camera over WLAN and Internet. I tried through the video section but it rejects it.
My kind regards to everyone,
If anyone wants any help, please feel free to message me here and I 'll give you my email address or alternatively I can install the camera for you remotely over a weekend if you still find it hard! No pro!
And NO! I don't own or have shares in the company;) I have a job thank you! I just do it because I like learning new stuff and helping people :)
PS. (update April 2013)
I've noticed that this cam is now advertised by Amazon with a built-in mic and speakers. I had one user asking me on how to setup this but as far as I know
there are NO audio settings at all for this model! Beware then as if you are buying the camera with the intend to use audio! If you know anything more on this or want to share your experience configuring the audio; please post here.

I've just emailed you the guide. Let me know if it helped or if u get stuck. It will be also useful if u want additional info to tell me your router model and number. Like NetGear WNR1000 for example.

Thank you for the guide - I seem to have different software than what you are referring to in the guide but with a bit of trial and error I managed to get it working remotely - fantastic!

Some other guys here mentioned the same thing. Since I wrote the guide the software has changed slightly but the core modules are still the same ;) Glad I was of some help mate! Well done :)

The only difference to camera functionality that I can see is that though the option to turn off the IR emitters is there it is greyed out and cannot be changed - a bit of a pain if you have it pointed out of a window at night.

Good to know. Thanks for the tip! It is really annoying when things you want to activate/de-activate they are just GREYED out..It sucks:)
