      Best Uses

        Comments about Foscam FI9828W 1.3 MP HD Pan/Tilt/Zoom Wireless Dome IP Camera with 3.7 to 14.8mm Varifocal Lens:

        Spying on pets and casual surveilance.

        The camera claims 90degrees of vertical pan but fails to mention that it is from straight down to horizontal. I would have liked the option to lose some down for some tilt above horizontal.

        There is a big bundle of connectors on a short cable from the camera. All but one (the power) are not needed most of the time. This makes it hard to have a neat installation on an exposed outside location. To get power to the camera a fat 7/16" hole is needed in a wall.

        I could only get partial control from various generic IP cam software products (iSpy on Windows, IPcam Basic on Android) and the proprietary browser plugin requires a browser update.
