The black FI9826W 1.3MP Wireless/Wired Indoor PTZ IP Camera from Foscam is a versatile surveillance solution that can be wired directly into a system, or it can transmit wirelessly, allowing it to be placed just about anywhere without needing to run cables. Utilizing a 1.3MP 1/4" color CMOS sensor to capture video in 960TVL, it has display output of up to 1280x960 for high resolution recording and viewing. An 12 IR-LED emitter array circles the lens to give the camera true night-vision with a reach of up to 26' in complete darkness. A optical zoom lens and integrated motors on the horizontal and vertical axis give this camera 300° Pan, 120° Tilt, and 3x Zoom capabilities that are controllable through the included software or mobile apps. There are also programmable guard tours that will automatically control the P/T functions along a preset route. The camera supports 2-way audio using the built-in microphone and speaker. There are also ports that allow an external mic and speakers to be connected, for example as part of a PA system.

A built-in MicroSD slot accepts cards up to 32GB for local file storage, and you can save to remote drives using the software. The included surveillance software is compatible with Windows and Mac OS computers and allows you to live-view, record, playback, control the Pan and Tilt, customize the camera and system, and add/delete users with different access levels. Up to eight different users can have access to the camera with three access levels that are all password-protected. Camera customization includes recording resolution, setting motion-detection and sensitivity, setting privacy zones, and adjusting all aspects of the image. For monitoring the camera on-the-go, there is an app for iOS and Android devices. You can even have up to four email address automatically receive email alerts, with a snapshot attached, when a motion-detection event occurs.

          Comments about Foscam FI9826W 1.3MP Wireless/Wired Indoor PTZ IP Camera (Black):

          I received the camera last week. Here are a few problems: The CD that came with the camera is unusable, so I ended up downloading the software and the users' manual online. It was easy to set it up though - not sure whether someone who is not familiar with computers will be able to do it alone. I don't like the available DNS options since it supports NO-IP and DynDNS, which are not free anymore. The websites of the other 2 DNS providers are in Chinese, so I could not use them. Finally, I was forced to use the default Foscam domain. Another problem is that the software package (Foscam Camera Client) that comes with the camera cannot recognize my camera. I have tried everything, but nothing works. Apart from that, the guys who developed the software did a poor job (very limited options).Something that is important, but is missing from the web-interface is the option to manage your disk when it gets full. It would also be nice if the developers added an option to run your own scripts when certain things happen (e.g., motion detection, full disk, etc.). I am still not sure (because I have not used yet an SD card) whether I will be able to manage and delete my recordings online (I was told by the Foscam support that the web-interface allows you to do so).Other than that the camera is good. I might buy one more cheaper camera that does not have the optical zoom, which I find useless.
