I haven't actually got one, but i remember when they were released, they were pretty good. the resolution is 640x480 (which is enough to see someone in, or around your house) and it can even send you mms messages or short video clips to an email address on motion detection

You can hook it up to a wireless router, or even a wired router via an ethernet cable.

is it worth buying you think?
or any cheaper

Well I've just ordered one. I'll let you know what its like when it comes.

Hey I dont mind anyone finding it cheaper, thats what we are here for, finding bargains. I did a quick google on it and didnt see it cheaper, but I'm pleased you did.

Ordered from Broadbandstuff by the way not the original posters

Have you got one of these MikeT

If anyone has one and wants to allow a demo for a while, it'd be great!

Just thinking...you'll need a static ip (or at least one that rarely changes) to access this reliably over the internet...

Its worth mentioning from what i've read about this camera is that if you use WPA encryption on your wireless network this camera has issues with dropping the connection after certain periods. Although its ok with WEP encryption but that could be hacked by someone determined enough. That said its still a great price for what it is.

yes a demo would be great so we can see how this actually looks

Hi, This is a reasonably good IP Camera and works with either a wired or wireless network as there's an Ethernet port on the camera itself as well as built in WiFi (802.11g). One thing that this and a lot of IP Cameras insist on though is MSIE which is a slight annoyance where preference is given to using Firefox/Opera/Safari web-browsers. This IP Camera used to cost in the region of £99.99-£149.99 therefore voted hot.

Hope this is of some help.

Hi, This is right however these also work with dynamically assigned IP addresses particularly with routers that support dyndns.org.

Hope this is of some help.

A review at PC Pro.

It sounds very powerful for the money but to get all the features mentioned in other posts in this thread you do need to subscribe to a 3rd party service.

Seems like a nifty product and from review suggests it will work with Intamac security system (and presumably my BT VP1000 system).

As for DDNS this uses their Sololink service. Would have preferred DynDNS as thats free but you do get a years license with Sololink at least. It seems thats all setup on the camera so it probably doesnt matter what wireless router you use?

Would like to here how this performs on WPA encryption. Would be tempted if theres no drop outs.

Hi Mikeyp, You're right about this product using Linksys Solo Link however in order to get dynamic dns to work this is not required. Using dyndns.org on your router works the same. Hope this helps. The 1-year worth of Solo Link is something that's cause for concern as I'd bought several of these 2-3 years ago and Solo Link was valid for 90-days only even though the packaging and the Solo Link page on the IP Camera itself said that there was a 1-year free trial. Never did take this up with Linksys as IP Cameras weren't used immediately. Can be quite fiddly to set-up however solidly made kit. Linksys customer support is second to none IMHO. Worth buying Linksys because of the latter.

Best Regards.
