If you need distance, resolution is important for face recognition or reading license plates. For installations where the subject is close, the less expensive Focam cameras with 640 x 480 res is fine.

Sold by 1SaleADay - an authorized Foscam reseller, so you get the phone tech support and US warranty

Foscam does not provide Mfr warranty unless you buy directly buy from them. Link

So, be careful when you buy from Newegg (or any other retailer) who has a limited return window.

I have 3 Foscam cameras. They are GREAT. But, this is not a deal. You can find them cheaper at other places. dtatha is correct about the warranty. So, be careful.

Buy from their authorized the dealers and you should be ok.

I had a dropcam and wanted to augment it with this camera...setup seemed a pain compared to the dropcam so I returned it.

Please find me this model cheaper as I have been looking for a while and can only find the cheaper low resolution ones for less. Not sure if you understand the difference between the $62 dollar one I bought last year as a hot deal here and this one.

Cheapest I have seen is $139.99

If you read that page, you will see 1SaleADay (the seller in this deal) is authorized.

Not sure what all these posters are talking about, unless they are thinking of the older models. The guy who sent it back is fair enough.

I actually have this camera. It was easy to set up. Hook up the wire, use the provided app to find the camera and set up the IP address etc. Once you can get into the web interface you can change the rest of the IP addresses. No different than setting up my Panasonic wireless cameras.

>> Infrared Motion Detection (with email notification and image upload via FTP)

Has anyone actually turned this feature into a text message alert in addition to email?
For example, via If This Then That ?

FYI -
Over Christmas my dropcam iOS and Android app notified me of movement in my house at 11:30pm local time, 6:30am where I was 5,000+ miles away. The picture showed police officers with flashlights walking through my house. The local PD would give no info over the phone, and by the time a neighbor made it there they were gone. My security company told me the front door sensor went off.

Without the dropcam alert, I never would have realized they had been there. They didn't leave a business card .

Anyway, I'd like to add more cameras, but I'd also like to eliminate the monthly fee. But to make it as useful:
- I'd want a page not an email.
- I'd want video immediately uploaded to a remote location. A local SD card could just be stolen.

FTP can save alerts to the internet, or another PC so you would need a place to upload to. It is very inexpensive (if not free) to get a website, or other space to use. A PC in a relatives house could be made to work for example.

I have not seen the built in software in the new camera, but I would imagine it would be easy to do. Software that can be purchased for cameras offer more configurations. With the one time purchase of software like Blue Iris you could do many things including controlling all the cameras in one user interface.


If you are the cameras to cover interior spaces, you probably would be better off getting a lower resolution camera (640 x 480) since the subjects will probably be close to the cameras. You can find the foscam models for less than $70 when on sale and of course other brands. Spending money on software (PC or MAC have different options) would be the best way to spend money and do what you want well. There are many choices. I chose blueiris since I use a PC, but there are plenty of others to use if you prefer.

The new foscam firmware comes with ddns built in that you can turn on. From there you can remotely see the cameras right away as well as looking in the buffer in the SD card.

If you want to use IFTTT, then you can use this recipe. Change it to the email address that your camera is sending email from.
