    Panasonic WV-SW174W reviews

    WV-SW174W HD Outdoor Pan-Tilt Wireless Network Camera with 1.95mm Fixed Lens (Silver) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from So far it sucks... Have the previous consumer model with an antenna. The older one works fantastically. Never drops. The new disconnect from the wireless network every couple of hours. To be fair it may be the signal, so I am in the process of adding a booster. It does get a 70%+ signal regularly, but apparently that's not enough. Would probably be fined wired. No night vision...which stinks. The older model had that too !

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great HD Quality - Bad WIFi Great Cameras. Bought two of them to put outside two pools. They are not really good wireless as if the connection is lost, i cannot view the camera again until i physically have to unplug it and plug it back in. When using Ethernet the connection is stable and works fine. The best part about the camera is def the quality of the picture. I have other Panasonic models and their pictures are good but in comparison to this model the picture is really detailed!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome outdoor camera Pan and tilt, wifi, great picture. Only thing I would change would be ability to hard wire instead of using a power adapter. This would enable me to mount in place of existing outdoor light, of which I have an overabundance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Professional, but for everyone! Very good product, plug and play easily; image quality is nice. The B&H's service is also wonderful: I've sent my order from Vietnam on 22nd December and I had received products on 25th!
