          Comments about Panasonic BLVT164P Pan-Tilt Day/Night Network Camera:

          Panasonic supplies it own FREE Dynamic DNS using Viewnetcam (you need to update the camera firmware immediately otherwise you can not register on their site). This is very useful service as then all your other IP cameras can be remotely addressed via the same free online account (using different port numbers).If your router supports uPnP the camera can automatically set up the necessary access ports to the internet. Panasonic's own Smartphone app and using internet browsers other than IE could be improved (accessing the camera's setup requires the Windows/Mac software add-in for browser - the may be other methods).The 9V power supply is 110-240V 50/60Hz so is good to use worldwide. The cord to the camera approx 6-8ft long. A longer cable would be required if mounting the camera in a ceiling corner (you would likely consider modifying a network cable to carry the power over cat5). The package does not come with a network cable.Heat activated motion detection and control outputs provide added functionality to updgrading your security and surveillance abilities.I will likely purchase the wireless camera model next (BLVT164W) but the cable only version is 30% cheaper and is worthwhile to test the software and internet service.

          This camera is amazing. The picture is much better than an older model I have owned for quite some time. Setup is not the most simple thing, but the Pannasonic tech support was able to guide me through things on the phone with ease. If you are buying a product like this you need to make sure that you or someone you know will be able to assist with the router setup and port forwarding in order to view the camera over the internet.
