Like all reviews you need to read between the lines. The one star from a guy moaning about not beaing able to set it up on an iPhone which quite frankly is a doddle. The others from people who don't know how the things work and how to set them up. Most real issues may have been resolved with a firmware update but a lot of people don't bother or know how to do it properly.
actually the TRENDnet Indoor/Outdoor (TV-IP311PI) Dome Style 3MP dome is only £74.99 at the moment on an amazon lightining deal so that's a nice camera too. The trendnet is not wireless though and uses power over ethernet.

Sorry for the newbie question but how do you record from these if they are wireless or do you just view them on your phone?
really annoying when you are limited to only buying one, might have taken a few of these otherwise.

Just view from the phone. But you can set them up to upload images via ftp or to capture the footage on a PC or NAS.

They keep coming up on the lightining deals, so I think it'll come around again.

​set up motion detection on your phone or PC, email still image on motion detection too. I use ipcam app by robertchoi on phone or tablet and ispy connect ispyconnect.com/ on PC.

There are a few free PC programs you can use. Bear in mind if you have 2 or 3 of these, or similar, then recording at 1080p and 30fps will need a pretty beefy dedicated PC. Plus it will affect your internal network speed. Best to view live at full fps, but drop the frame rate for recording or just record on motion.
Hot!! Paid £104 for this few months back :(. Excellent results.
I've got a couple of Foscam camera and have a Foscam NVR (network video recorder) in the loft (connected via a mains Ethernet socket thing) with it recording to a USB hard drive.

Good hardware, but not too impressed by Foscams software for phones. I use TinyCam Pro to view the cameras and I have not found anyway of viewing the NVR remotely (you would have thought Foscam would have an app to do this remotely).
Also I'm tempted to put the cameras on their own router as unsure if they might be slowing down my network?
Be warmed, Foscam support is ****. I own 6 960p cameras and when I needed a replacement cord for one they weren't interested.
Looking forward to posting pics of the tea leaves that frequent our area.

Damn, missed it. Father is after a dome camera and this would have been perfect.

What do you mean view the NVR remotely?

If it's to actually control the NVR fully, then I don't think there are that many consumer level OEM set-ups out there that enable you to do that. Plus any out there are generally only geared up for IE on a Windows PC. If the cameras are ONVIF compatible, then you could use a third party set-up with an old PC. I'm assuming you're able to view a live feed from outside your network though?

You could test network speed quiet easily (eg 'LAN Speed Test' for PC) with and without the cameras connected. Unless they are Full HD running at 20+ fps then I doubt they will be taking up too much bandwidth.
