Comments about Foscam FI9826W 1.3MP Wireless/Wired Indoor PTZ IP Camera (Black):
I received the camera last week. Here are a few problems: The CD that came with the camera is unusable, so I ended up downloading the software and the users' manual online. It was easy to set it up though - not sure whether someone who is not familiar with computers will be able to do it alone. I don't like the available DNS options since it supports NO-IP and DynDNS, which are not free anymore. The websites of the other 2 DNS providers are in Chinese, so I could not use them. Finally, I was forced to use the default Foscam domain. Another problem is that the software package (Foscam Camera Client) that comes with the camera cannot recognize my camera. I have tried everything, but nothing works. Apart from that, the guys who developed the software did a poor job (very limited options).Something that is important, but is missing from the web-interface is the option to manage your disk when it gets full. It would also be nice if the developers added an option to run your own scripts when certain things happen (e.g., motion detection, full disk, etc.). I am still not sure (because I have not used yet an SD card) whether I will be able to manage and delete my recordings online (I was told by the Foscam support that the web-interface allows you to do so).Other than that the camera is good. I might buy one more cheaper camera that does not have the optical zoom, which I find useless.
