The Cisco Wireless-N Internet Home Monitoring Camera by Linksys lets you keep an eye on your home or business anytime and from anywhere over the Internet or even using your smartphone. Because of its compact form and wireless connectivity you can quickly set up the camera in the area you need it to monitor.

You can set the camera to send an email alert along with a short video clip of the affected scene to three recipients whenever motion is detected by the camera. You can also record motion video and audio to a local PC's hard drive or to a shared network drive.

See It Live
The Wireless-N Internet Home Monitoring Camera is designed to send live video to your home computers, or through the Internet to a web browser or smartphone anywhere in the world! This compact, self-contained unit lets you keep track of your home, your kids, your workplace -- whatever's important to you.
Greater Security at a Glance
Perfect for keeping an eye on family, property, or anything important to you. The wireless connectivity and compact design makes for easy placement (mounted on a wall, or use the included desktop stand), so you can enjoy the peace of mind of reliable vigilance.
Real-Time Security
In Security Mode, the camera sends an email with a short video attached to up to three recipients whenever it detects motion in its field of view. You can then log onto the live video stream if the situation warrants. Use the included Viewer & Recorder utility to record the audio/video stream from multiple cameras to your local hard drive or shared network drive, "live," or on a predetermined schedule. The camera can also record directly to a compatible NAS device.
Choose Your Audience
You can keep your video stream secure and private within your home network, or share it by creating password-protected accounts. Or simply stream your broadcast to the web for the world to see.

    This camera is easy to set up, has good picture quality, is small enough to place anywhere and is priced fairly. I would give it 5 stars except for one glaring flaw: There is no Mac version of its software. It has a browser-based interface through which you can see the video output, but you cannot hear the audio, and I had bought this specific model because it has a microphone. The fact that you can use some features but not others on a Mac is not well explained, so beware.

      Comments about Linksys Wireless-N Internet Home Monitoring Camera:

      This camera was easy to install, great features for the price and simple enough for the average non-technical person to use. The only reason that I did not give it 5 stars, was because I did have to call to get some technical advise when setting it up for the first time.

        Installed on home network with D-Link Routers. Set-up was easy, although instructions were lacking. People with minimal tech knowledge may struggle a bit. I still can;t get teh blue LED to diable despite slecting the option to do so in the interface. Video is acceptabel for the price paid. The blue LED received a piece of black electrical tape and problem solved.

          1. I use this product for home security.
          2. Things that are great about this product is it was super easy to setup and the web interface works well and is simple.
          3. The thing this is missing the most is the ability to have it send images using FTP on a set interval.
          4. Doesn't have PTZ and IR which other products that are cheaper have.

            Loved this cam. We use it to monitor our home while away. I have it set up to send video to my email account when it detects motion. The quality of the video is quite good for the price.
            The only draw back is setting it up. I had to get a neighbor to set it up for me as I am quite "computer illiterate". I'm sure it's probably easy for anyone with a bit of knowledge of computers.
            I would definately recommend it. It's very reasonable priced for the quality of it.

                Comments about Linksys Wireless-N Internet Home Monitoring Camera:

                Based on the specs this was what I needed and I chose it over D-Link and Panasonic. Unfortunately after spending a lot of time (with Linksys customer supports as well) could not make it work.
                Linksys support recommended changing router security to WPA from WEP, although the camera spec says WEP is supported. FIOS does not provide any tech support for WPA...so in the end I am an unhappy customer returning a unreliable product.

                          The Cisco Wireless-N Internet Home Monitoring Camera by Linksys WVC80N is really awesome. I used DynDNS instead of http://www.tzo.com/ (default one) because it is "FREE". Please don't use CD to configure, directly use your web browser to configure the camera. (Default IP: 192.168.1.1)Configuration(Wireless)is also very easy.But please don't forget to get Dynamic DNS service(www.DynDNS.com) before you start the configuration and also do port forwarding in your router. (port: 8080)There is lot of information in the web, to do the configuration.Even Shipping from B&H was very fast....

I think the picture is rather clear and the fact that I can use my media player to record is awesome! I can't believe how well the camera is working out! I would definitely recommend this camera to everyone!

Once confident that it would work reliably I purchased another 3 units and installed them around the chicken coop to supplement the first unit. I am very happy with their performance and ease of use. I would highly recommend this camera. Buying from B&H was a positive experience. No issues with online ordering and receiving notification of order fulfillment [...]

                              Nice cam, super easy setup, a little bulky and I had an issue with the wireless freezing up but overall lots of options. However, I went back to the Dlink camera since it had a few more features I liked.

                                    This is my 1st IP camera, so I can't compare, and I woudn't know what else to buy. It was chalanging to set up also linksys N-draft router's port forwarding, smtp for sending motion detection, but now I can see my video online 1 month free through dyndns and I receive e-mails, videos or pics.

                                          I was able to set up the camera easily following directions provided. I have a Mac and the item had been advertised as "mac-compatible." The provided software runs on Mac - in fact the CD I got didn't seem to have any Windows software - but lacks the CameraUtility application which is needed to finalize the setup. This is available only for Windows as a download after searching; I use it in Parallels. Then there is a trick involving the Airport Utility software. You must find the DHCP table under Logs and Statistics to discover the IP address assigned by the Airport device to the camera. Then you can access the camera. Changing settings is then possible, but the web interface gives no control over the sound from the camera, and despite using the CameraUtility application to (after long searching to find the control) turn on the microphone, I am still not able to hear sound from the camera over the web interface. Phone help was very helpful when I sought it concerning setup; I haven't discussed with them the sound problem but the other posts suggest web-based sound just doesn't work. The motion detection works well after adjusting the sensitivity and emailing a short snippet of detected motion works. In summary, both Mac-compatibility and basic features could stand improvement.

                                              I had to call cisco for helping me set up this wireless product.. I am a gear head/ techy savy and pretty much this is probably one of the hardest device i ever dealt with..

                                                    I have 3 cameras in my apartment, and everyday I have to restart one of them, (because it just stop showing video, the camera is working but no picture). I called to Linksys/Cisco, spent many hours on the phone with them, they restored the cameras, they tried every setting possible, but nothing helped. If you google it, lots of people complaining about it, but no action from Linksys/Cisco side. Stay away from that camera if you are planning on using multiple units.

                                                    Works well...Very functional,easy to set up & use. Be aware that this camera obviously requires a wireless router to be already set up. Also, the DDNS used for remote viewing will require a subscription to an additional(albeit small) monthly fee. It would be nice if the power cable was quite a bit longer...as is it limits placement of the camera without the use of an extension cord. Works best with internet explorer...other browsers not supported well.
