The white FI9821W V2 H.264 Megapixel Wireless Indoor IP Camera from Foscam records high-quality 720p HD videos 24/7, and can be easily integrated into your existing video surveillance system. This is the newer version of the camera, version 2, and utilizes a 1/4" Color 1.3 Mp CMOS sensor to capture video at a resolution of 1280 x 720. Equipped with remote Internet viewing and night vision capability, it is suitable for installation in homes as well as offices.

The 3.6mm lens, with a 70° field of view, along with the 1.3 Mp CMOS sensor enables this camera to capture crystal clear, richly-colored images. Additionally, with 300° panning and 120° tilt angles, the camera ensures coverage of a broad surveillance area from a single point. When it gets too dark to record normal images, the 11 IR LEDs are automatically activated, providing IR illumination up to 26.24’ (8m). At the same time, the automatic IR filter retracts, enabling the camera to capture clear images even in the thick of the night.

With its built-in microphone and speaker, this camera enables you to communicate with on-site visitors or potential intruders. This nifty and versatile camera even allows you to view footage remotely over the Internet. You can view live footage on a desktop computer using any standard browser, or on your iPhone, Android, or BlackBerry smartphone. This easy-to-install camera can be used to keep an eye on your baby back home, or to monitor activities on your premises.

Note! Audio cannot be heard when viewing videos remotely via the Internet over smartphones.

        I really like this camera. 720P is great. It is so clear. I have three DLinks and thought I would try a Foscam. Had a little difficulty setting it up but I did succeed after a few tries. If you are going to place it in a window to view outside I think a black one would have been better because you get some reflections from the window. I would recommend this camera to my friends.

        First off, for $, I wasn't expecting a whole lot.Overall it is a decent camera. Image quality is very good, motion alarm works great and you can set it up to go on at certain times, or always on. Same with IR. The iPhone app that foscam has out works well with it.However, before buying take note of a few issues. Set up is not exactly easy. The camera tool would not recognize the camera until I disabled the networks adapters that I was not using. Setting up the static IP for it and setting up email alerts is pretty straight forward. (there are several videos on youtube that will help you with this)My major complaint with the camera is that it drops connection using wifi. I recentaly went on a week vacation and the camera dropped connection so I had no acess to my "security" camera.Atleast once a day I have to unplug it and plug it back in. This seems to be a common problem from what I have found. maybe using network cable would fix issue?

              The installation is very easy (Just follow the instructions). The picture is very clear and the light is automatically adjusted.Setup in iPhone and PC is very easy as well.The recording event programming is a bit annoying. And the SD card that I used worked for a certain time and stoped. I did not check it deeply yet.

              Comments about Foscam FI9821W V2 H.264 Megapixel Wireless Indoor IP Camera (White):

              I have three of these units (FI9821W V2) and find them extremely useful... They are supported by plenty of different mobile apps and all browsers.The issue I have is that they are only reliable with the most recent firmware/plugin update (development has stopped and there is a clear final update available from foscam). The problem arises when one wants to update – for this purchase, I needed to sequentially install 8 different updates!! Each update relies upon the previous version being installed. (1 star drop in rating for this)

                    I have a few Foscam cameras already and thought since I needed a couple more I'd get the newer H.264 models.The picture is quite an improvement over the older units and for the most part they're great.The issue I had was that 1 camera was super super slow at responding to pan/tilt commands. The other worked flawlessly but when I mean super slow it was literally click to pan and 10 seconds later it would. I sent that unit back assuming it had issues (this was after trying to troubleshoot it with factory defaults and all that jazz).I'd rate these a 5-star if it weren't for the one that gave me issues.Would I order it again .... Yes

                    This is my 3rd foscam camera that I've purchased, needless to say one of the best on the market (and believe me I've tried them all). Customer support from foscam is prob one of the best. Will definitely be purchasing more as my need becomes larger.

                          B&H got me the Foscam camera very quickly and I thought the installation would be easy since most products are close to plug and play simple. The Foscam is a another story. After 4 days of trying I still can not connect via WIFI let alone on my phone. I have been told that Foscam will walk you through the set up but will charge you. Now the poor instructions make more sense.

                                I've used it for a few days, seems to work. Like the infrared control. Setup is difficult and poor. I had issues with setting up ftp. It is pass or fail, there is no logging information or error code to indicate what went wrong. The problem was with my server, but no way to tell. The interface also got into an invalid state telling me I had too many characters in the url. Couldn't go any further. Took re-installing firmware, factory reset to clear it..

                                  For the money, you can't go wrong. Sure there are better ones out there if you want to spend tons more, but this one does what I want it to. Althouth it's an indoor camera, I have mine set up outside on my electrical box. I know of a guy that installs these for people around town and has had his outside for 2 years without a problem, and this is in MN. Like somebody else mentioned, once you have it connected to your wireless system and installed, call Foscam tech support and let them take control of your PC to set it up for port forwarding. These guys are good. I can now access my camera and control it from anywhere from my iphone.

                                    I really like this camera. 720P is great. It is so clear. I have three DLinks and thought I would try a Foscam. Had a little difficulty setting it up but I did succeed after a few tries. If you are going to place it in a window to view outside I think a black one would have been better because you get some reflections from the window. I would recommend this camera to my friends.

                                          Getting the camera set up requires a lot of help from tech support. However, they do a good job of helping every time I have asked.
                                          Once it is up and going it takes very good pictures and monitoring is easy and clear. It is easy to operate. Love the camera and have made the second purchase and plan to buy three more.

                                            I decided to purchase this unit for my baby monitor instead of the overpriced low quality units that rae branded as baby monitors. I was impressed with the quality of this unit. The video looks great and can be displayed on HD monitors without looking horrible. Set up is a bit tricky and I anticipate that is something Foscam will improve with time. I highly recommend this product for people looking for a great IP camera at a great price.

                                            Good camera for the money spent. Not easiest setup but after all done works very well. Quality is decent night vision is decent. Would recommend

                                            This is my second FI9821W V2 and they are very good little cameras with a very decent image. They do not handle low lighting in color very well. Make sure that daytime light is plentiful otherwise the image will flicker making it difficult to use for motion sensing applications such as with Synology's Surveillance Platform though they are compatible and work fine.

                                                We use this for remote monitoring our business CNC router. The shop manager is especially pleased since he can review the CNC progress over the weekends from the comfort of his home. Foscam has videos online to help setup and configure the camera. It was somewhat difficult to get the camera ported through the network firewall.

                                                        The camera will be used for home security. I like the pan/tilt and infrared features. It works well with third party software for the ipad. It's a little tricky to set up and the PC software has a known problem of crashing the PC after a few minutes of logging in. The sound feature is not widely supported. I'd rate it as 5 stars without these bugs.
