640x480 resolution? Ideal for capturing pixelated burglars.

Low res average reviews probably best spending a little but more to get a product that can visualise real life rather than 8 bit burglars

Can't see this has better specs than the Tenvis IP cameras that are available from around £20.

Just to make one thing clear.
While this camera is "wireless" (i.e. uses WiFi to send its images), it's NOT wire-less. It still needs a wire to connect it to its power supply. So nobody should buy this thinking they can just take the camera (and none of the pictures anywhere show the camera connected to its wall adapter) and put it anywhere they like. Users are limited to placing the camera close enough to a mains socket to allow this "wireless" camera to be powered - and then route the power cable conveniently.

Having said that, the same applies to all other "wireless" IP cameras, too.

I don't know why people bother with wifi based security cameras. Wifi is unreliable and can be easily taken down with an old laptop, wifi dongle and certain versions of linux.

Perhaps because it's easier than routing tens or hundreds of metres of networking cable through floors/walls/ceilings/attics etc.

Wifi isn't unreliable, some routers/equipment are, but they would be over UTP too. Only hackable if they're still using WEP, but that being the case there's probably not much worth nicking anyway. :)

Well I still stand by my comment, I have used Foscams by wifi in the past so have some experience. with things like this its worth doing properly, you have to run power cable anyway so another cable (usually you get both power and video combined anyway) wont make much difference and then you have a system that cant be interfered with from outside parties.

Wifi can be very unreliable, lots of different factors can affect it's range and stability. for example I have a wireless 2.4Ghz digital nature cam and when that locks up and requires a power cycle it slows down wifi traffic on my network to a snails pace.

As for the WEP comment, I said nothing about hacking. Every wifi device (computers, tablets, cams or whatever) can be knocked off their network (effectively jammed) with a simple command. It doesn't matter whether your using WEP,WPA,WPA2 etc, all you need is a cheap wifi enabled laptop and linux running from a USB stick. Anyone can do it ;)

If your IP cam is hundreds of metres away, it's unlikely that WiFi will have the range to connect, anyway.

I put some ethernet cable in a few years ago to link various points in the house to the router upstairs, I had a 100m spool of solid core cable and ran out.
