Damn if only this was 1080p. Still a hot deal, but would like 1080p really like my current system.

HEAT from me!
These things have so many technical issues you'll lose all your hair. I'd keep looking elsewhere...
Really great deal! I've got 2 Foscam Cameras, indoors and outdoors recording at 1080p. More expensive than others but you can record to a NAS drive with no issues.
What a cracking deal!
What reviews? I haven't read anything bad about this model
Fantastic little camera full HD and quick to set up with a QR code that you scan with your phone/tablet.
With the reviews this thing gets £70 seems over priced
Er... is that a good price..? :|
can get a 5mp reolink 423 for around £150, much better cameras
People still buy Foscam? What, are we still in the 1990s? FOSCAM have never evolved, they are leagues behind others in terms of price and picture quality
Good spot, thanks.
Yeah, like my Dacia is just as good as a Bentley. It’s a car isn’t it?
how are these compared to hikvision cameras (wired) i have the old HD cameras which are all connected up, i understand they now have the POE cameras which are even better, just wondered what these where like
How to set a ftp for motion detection video storage?I CAN'T find the settings in the my FOSCAM APP
I have 2 from Groupon at £31.99 a couple of weeks back. Have been monitoring the dogs whilst in Tenerife. I had a couple of spare SD cards so no extra cost for me personally. Easy to set up with a QR code on the back of the camera.
Foscam is now offering a FREE cloud service as well as additional paid packages. https://www.foscam.com/company/cloudservice.html
How much do they charge for their cloud services? Can't find any info on Foscam site. Where are their servers based?
Heated ! Great cameras, have 3 up and running around the house to monitor dogs and they do the job very well. Have them linked to OWLR app and have almost instant connection both at home and whilst out and about. Plus I can monitor all 3 at the same time. Their cloud prices are a bit steep but am happy to use SD cards when needed.
I am currently playing with a £19 Xiaomi Dafang camera and I am blown away at the image quality. It also has movement tracking. If you only need a few internal cameras I would recommend anyone take a look at these and grab them when on special.
Whats the night performance like on these. I have a 5 year old Foscam that I gave up on as I could never get the contrast right. It was either too dark or too light such that faces just became all white like ghosts. I gave up on it in the end but would like to get it working again really, even if I have to buy a new camera. Thanks
Cat 5 is far better - I now run mine with Cat 5 and a powerline adapter as the wifi was so poor. I tried a number of different aerials but they didn't make a massive difference - range and stability were poor. Mine runs onto a Foscam NVR. In terms of software I use the latest Thanks Nexy I didn't realise you could do that!
Proper PoE is a different beast, and you're right that this isn't a PoE model. Passive injectors and splitters are just a simple hijack of the wire pairs that 10/100mb (non-gigabit) ethernet doesn't need. Put the power in at one end, pull it back out at the other. Cheap, quick and dirty but effectively.
Not being au fait with PoE I didn't think this cam did PoE? The PSUE is 12v and I thought PoE was 48v?
Hi, Merry xmas! Do you know when this deal end?
I bought a load of "Lorex" branded cameras from Maplin for under £50, 1080p POE IP cameras, I flashed them with Dahua Software.
Numerous Foscam products are now priced higher than they were before this latest ‘promotion’
Have found the Foscam cams pretty poor. You can get something by a decent make like Dahua for the same money.
No subtitles I'm afraid on CCTV ;)
There are lots of things.... Actually when I found this offer going on I just shared without much checking. You can browse the site for your preferred model. Almost all products there come with discounts (more or less).
I like the WIFI NVR kits 3104W, so easy to use
Once I would have voted this hot. I have a couple of cameras and an nvr. The firmware is buggy on all of them. The nvr that allows me to view my one 1080p camera cannot record at 1080p. The Wi-Fi on the 1080p is dreadful resulting in constant drops. The other cameras have better wifi but a number of other firmware related issues.I'd be very careful before spending good money on Foscam hardware.
The code works Great don't no why cold thanks for posting :D
Your garden, kitchen, next room, anywhere as long as you are connected to the IP camera via network interface. Certainly you are not leaving your lovely baby alone at home and drive 50miles for shopping :D
When your away?! Where do you go?! (shock) (cheeky)
Caution when buying: Have just had a delivery of one of these and it is a V1 camera. The current model is the V3 so they are obviously getting rid of old stock as well. The V1 is older hardware so will not accept the current Firmware update. Awaiting an answer from Amazon re replacement.
Foscam really are a (poo) company. They were supposed to offer 700 units at £29.99, but figured it would be better to wait a few days and bump the price up to £34.99.
There's already a post for this. Pity they have now pushed it up by £5 since the weekend.
Yes, I use mine as a baby monitor and could view it through an app called TinyCam Monitor. You could install this app on any android device. There are plenty of apps that support Foscam. I also have an app installed on an iPad and IP Camera Viewer installed on a pc.
It's the same for me, all works well, but when not in the browser it fails to follow any motion detection rules. I read somewhere that it works OK with FTP to another location, but not so when SD card. Definitely a bug. The other thing is there are now a few versions of this C1, I am using V3 delivered by Amazon, and the firmware for this is different, so perhaps they have forgotten to correct it for this firmware. The quality of the camera and the angle is very good, I would have been very happy keeping the product otherwise.
Seems a bit odd. All I can say is that when I tested it, it worked fine for me with those instructions.
I followed the instructions to record to SD card - https://www.foscam.com/Faqs/view/id/85.html but that only works with a browser open as reported on the Foscam support forums.
So under Action Detection, did you set the schedule (fill in the little red blocks) and save it? Edit: Here's the Foscam instructions: https://www.foscam.com/faqs/view.html?id=87
Thats general for all cameras. The main difference between brands is better support and updates. I don't own a Xiomi camera, but do own quite a few Foscam ones. Generally software bugs and firmware updates will be released more regularly for more well known brands like Foscam.
Is that in general for all cameras or just well received brands? (I was originally looking at the Xiomi one which looked quite low profile)
Choose a strong password and keep the firmware up to date and you'll be fine.
How is the security of attacks from the internet? I've been reading about these cheap ones and they even have built in vulnerabilities...

agree, not clear how to edit on android app?

Are you in prison ?
I have 21 cameras and need more, I think every house should have at least 4?
I don't suppose there's any rooms to rent? ;)
jammy b a s t a r d lol
Playboy Mansion ;)
I did mention some bad reviews when I called, and was told there are two Foscam's in the UK. That it was the other site www.foscam.co.uk is run by an american company thats support is awful
Not a particularly nice come to buy from. After sales are ****. Avoid
Is there a camera for around £20-£30 that uses secure servers (not chinese), that has the SD storage option as well, night view and a decent picture resolution?
I've got one and I've been testing it for a day. So far I've lost the link from my iphone to the camera and unable to recreate it despite deleting and then recreating. I then tried to access the camera from a browser. Unfortunately it will not work if your Windows PC is 64 bit. I then used the browser from the laptop which runs on Windows 32 bit but still no connection. So far I have no way see what is on the camera real time. I also could not find anywhere in the phone app (when it did work) on how to send a photo or video clip to my email. Support said it can be done but didn't say how so I'll have to chase up unless I return it for a refund. There was also no way to view local recordings through the phone app.
No problem, hopefully it's as good as you think but I am guessing not!
apology mate.. We got the black one at work.. sorry if i was misleading you guys.. I will find out in a couple of days time as i have ordered a few more for testing.
Taken from the manufacturers website: - IR Range N/A It is a downgrade to the C1 in black and this seems like the downgrade!
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.
Damn, missed it. Father is after a dome camera and this would have been perfect. :(
Looking forward to posting pics of the tea leaves that frequent our area.
Be warmed, Foscam support is ****. I own 6 960p cameras and when I needed a replacement cord for one they weren't interested.
Also I'm tempted to put the cameras on their own router as unsure if they might be slowing down my network?
Price gone up to £50.82 now :(
