    A couple years ago we were gifted an 8904W and it never got installed until a few weeks back. We have a crazy neighbour that was harassing us constantly and we finally put up the camera to watch him and record anything necessary for the police. That immediately stopped all the harassment and I decided for the safety of the house I wanted more to watch the driveway and the front door. I saw this great deal here on B&H and picked up two 8905W's bundled together. What a brilliant camera!

    I installed one over the long driveway and we can now see both our cars, our trailer, and the gate to the back yard. It provides a great view at night and the night vision lets us see all the way to the street; a distance of about 75 feet from the camera's location. It provides crisp video, even at night. The other camera we installed pointing at our front door and a little past the corner of the house it resides on. This lets us see who walks up and when they are at the step to the door. This is a challenging location for this camera as it does not have a wide enough angle of view, allowing only about four and a half feet side-to-side from a distance of about six or seven feet away. Not horrible, but not brilliant. I knew this going in but the two-camera deal was hard to pass up and it will suffice until I can get a wider-angled camera in there, and this one can then move elsewhere.

    The software it comes with is a bit tricky at first and even on a new computer seems to run a bit slow. I chalk this up to the interface it uses (ActiveX). It doesn't officially support anything other than Internet Explorer (gag) and that's unfortunate as it makes setup and monitor difficult for those of us who like real browsers. Once configured, it does a great job alarming and recording and has a lot of options to configure. The email feature is awesome and nice to have. However, sometimes it seems the email will catch a picture of the individual or object that triggered the alarm, but the video shows nothing. For those who will be setting this up to remote view it does require some time to read the instructions and you should be prepared to read the manual to your wireless router at home. I work in IT networking and setting up a router and port forwarding and static IPs on my home network is something I do all the time. To the average person, just read and take it slow and you'll have it working in no time at all! And boy is it cool to log in from work or my iPhone and see what's going on. Despite not working to configure well for IE, it works well in monitor mode in Safari on a mobile device.

    The cameras are LARGE! They are about the size of a typical bread pan, or perhaps a large drink cup from a fast food chain. So be prepared to make some space for them. The plugs have open ends for ethernet and power so if you can't hide them out of the weather, seal them up with some electricians tape or something similarly water resistant. I hope they eventually fix that or make them a sealed plug, but for now be warned. They have stood up to wind and rain just fine once sealed. The other downside to these is the ring of reddish LEDs that is the IR lights for night vision. These cameras in the day are not stealthy due to size and shiny silver colour. They are also not stealthy in the night because of this large ring of LEDs. If you need a more hidden option for night watching, keep looking. I don't find it a problem as I want people to know this is there.

    Overall, I'd buy these again for long-distance viewing or to cover a larger area from the corner of a roof - say, the back yard. Well worth the cost for some security and very easy to use.

    The FI8905W Outdoor Wireless IP Camera camera has a great price point on B&H but is a very unreliable and borderline faulty product. The housing is sturdy but the mounting arm is really a complete piece of junk.

    My first camera came with broken internal parts and was quickly replaced by B&H.

    My second camera died after 3 months of normal use. I basically had to beg, lie, and threaten to expose Foscam support to assist me with an RMA.

    4 weeks later, my third camera now installed has a flickering/flashing image during daylight viewing. The firmware is current and up to date. Searching online reveals I am not alone.

    This camera does require some more advanced knowledge of networking to configure properly.

    No point in paying for a sub-par product that has no to little support from the manufacturer. Simply a waste of money and time.

      I use these on my horse farm with my Ayrmesh network to monitor horses indoors and outdoors. These cameras have operated at -18 and 80+ Fahrenheit, in snow and rainstorms and continue to work well. The IR is terrific and illuminates out to the advertised 100'. For the price, you can't get a better performing, more robust, easy to configure camera. Works great with Blue Iris monitoring software.

      I found some odd software issues. It seems that whenever I add a password to the camera, it ceases to operate normally. I ended up leaving the password blank just so I could use the camera. Other than that, the instruction manual is helpful, albeit entertaining in the use of English.

      Comments about Foscam FI8905W Outdoor Wireless IP Camera (Silver):

      I want to emphasize that I walked into this knowing that cheap Wi Fi cameras are likely a challenge. So this is not a criticism; I got a cheap Wi Fi camera!
      The set up is tortuous and you need to know your IT. The instructions are terrible and Foscam should be ashamed of them. But I battled through and have a sort-of working camera. I have yet to understand why it's not pushing out to the WAN; and why it only works on 320x240 resolution. But the e-mail motion detection is working... and of course, it is a powerful deterrent.
      Would I recommend it? Only to someone with good to great IT skills who can't afford something better.

        Comments about Foscam FI8905W Outdoor Wireless IP Camera (Silver):

        First off, hats off to B&H. Shipped out same day as my order, at my door in 4 days, and that was over a weekend.

        I've used several indoor Foscams. This one proves to be easy to setup and use. Good video quality and night vision is also quite good. The physical size is large, mainly I think, to accomodate the 60 LEDs.

        Unfortunately this cam has a 30 degree field of view, and so it was too narrow for my application. This one is going back only for that reason and I will probably order the FI8904W with a 45 degree FOV.

        The mounting bracket is also kind of flimsy, I don't know how long it would hold up especially if subject to windy conditions or a lot of precipitation.

The FOV is a bit limited. Setup is easy but the client application and remote viewing setup requires some intermediate networking skills.

                      I knew nothing about surveillance camers, but wanted to put some outside the home. Not an IT pro, but comfortable with home networking.

                      Serious outdoor cameras start at $1200.00. Foscam (and clones/rebrands) were widely available at $100.00 or so. Be good to learn on. I went for the two-fer deal, in case one came DOA.

                      THE CAMERA. Not 'rock solid' construction but should last for a while under the wide eves of our house. The mount is a joke but is 1/4 x 20 standard camera thread. Pigtail from camera is about 3 ft. terminating in: 1) RJ ethernet connector; 2) connector for power supply (which has another 5 ft of low voltage wire); 3) a reset button. Need to think about how to weatherproof all that.

                      NETWORKING. Decent 'Quick Start' guide. Software includes program to find any Foscams on the ethernet LAN. Then jump to the http (web server) within the camera. (First connection wants to be with Microsoft's IE browser. Later login with Firefox is different but no problem.) Once in, you monitor the camera, setup the wireless IP, etc.

                      SOFTWARE. Allows monitoring of up to 9 Foscams. The two cameras had different releases of both firmware and web server. Went to Foscam's web page to update. Versions in one camera were more recent than 'current release' at Foscam.com (!?). Also, a note that updating firmware "could brick the camera. If it works, leave it alone."

                      So far have stayed within the LAN. Not tried email alerts to cell phone, monitor and control from off-site, etc. Foscam offers to host off-site for a while for free, if you want to let them into your LAN. I've been using the open source 'iSpy' - a bit more sophisticated monitoring, but have to use on-camera web server to change camera controls.

                      IMAGE. Daytime (color) image is *nice*. Night (B+W) image stinks. Huge array of low-red LEDs draws attention to camera. Objects close in totally whited out. In a room, with reflecting walls, might work OK. Outside only mid-distance is properly illuminated. Regardless, image is unuseable for identification because of long frame-exposure time unless the perp is standing stock-still.

                      SUMMARY. Really nice daytime image; not so much at night. Easy to network. Can't beat it for the price. Don't know how they will hold up outside to winter cold, summer heat (with the LEDs on at night, the camera power supply gets warm), or morning dew on the wireless antenna.

                          I use this to monitor my car outside of our Apt. I haven't been able to figure out how to use the video capturing software yet and have been using "Debut video capture software" instead. If you need an ip camera with IR technology built-in and don't want to spend a great deal of $ and have some understanding of wireless networking, then I would say just go for it. I personally wished I had chosen a good webcam instead. The reason? The FI8905W only works with IR if it's outside. Inside, at night, the IR reflects of the window and makes the camera useless. But for $ , I'm not too disappointed.

                          This was the perfect product for watching my driveway, especially at night. It has a stationary, full color lens with great night vision (led) that easily covers the area I needed it for (about 24 wide x 35 long.) I mounted the camera just under the peak of the gable end over the garage door so it is high and straight on. I did have to cut off the camera power end to convert to my power source (I purchased a seperate piece that extends both power and network across ethernet cable so I did not need to install an electrical outlet or figure out an extension cord scheme.) The camera has wireless which easily connects to my household network (just follow the directions carefully!) I have a smartphone app that easily picks up the camera view at any time. And I set this unit up to record on motion and save pictures and video to my computer like a DVR. Awesome stuff. This is not a small unit in comparrison to others out there and the LED does glow for the night vision mod; I call it my cyclops but it adds as another security feature as a noticiable deterent! It does not pan or tilt and does not have sound but records this large area great.

                            Bought this for a WX camera. Due to a flickering problem between light and dark areas I had to point it more to the ground then the sky. Hopefully the problem will be solved with a future firmware update. Also, the picture is a little fuzzy. Otherwise the night vision is very good for seeing creaters within fifty feet or so. The alarm system works and sends e-mails. I had very little problem setting it up as wireless. Just wished the power cord was a little longer.

                            It's bulkier than expected, installation is easy and the wireless part works fine. Nighttime performance is good, noise level is low but in broad daylight the image is burned in. The brightness and contrast adjustment makes little difference. Putting an ND filter in front of the lens makes a dramatic improvement in image quality but then it has to be taken off at night. So the lack of an iris in the objective makes the camera almost useless here in the south-west during the day. Indoor works fine. I've never tried recording video with it.

                            Solid piece of equipment.
                            Images were poor, especially after a few days of being on wireless.
                            I actually returned it because the images were not useful for identifying known people, let alone tresspassers.

                                I think the camera works great. Once I got it set up it works fine. I had isues trying to watch the recorded video in Windows Media Player, but I switched to watch in Quick Time Player and have had no problems. Unfortunately, the tech support form Foscam is very poor. I feel the manual is almost adeguate, but needs more explanation on setup. If one has some IT sense, you can get through it, but I thing the novice may have a problem.
