  • Affordable, but hard to set up, and low quality. Seldom work unless hardwired into the network, and our three started dying off after 13 months. Jul 08, 2019

  • So nice and easy to connect multiple cameras Feb 07, 2019

  • Have used this as a baby monitor for 4+ years. Must be plugged in (no batteries).Can use outside of wifi if desired to check in if out and babysitter is with children, etc. No issues, would recommend. Aug 24, 2018

  • Almost loved this until it lost connection 3 occasions and I couldn’t hear anything. Ran into my babies room to find her screaming. There should be an alarm for poor connection. Apr 28, 2018

    We used this in addition to our other monitor when hubby was deployed so he could log in and check on the baby and talk to him! Feb 18, 2018

    Great camera with a great picture! Jan 02, 2018

  • We used this with an app on our phone instead of a traditional monitor. Loved using my phone instead of the small cheapy monitors. The night mode stopped working after a year, but still worth it. Jul 08, 2017

    Currently using this camera to watch our little one. The camera has great picture and a wide range of movement. The app is less than stellar and connecting when not on wifi is slow. Apr 07, 2017

  • This is pretty awesome camera. Setup was easy and customer service is great when you have any question. The video quality is pretty good compared some other cameras we've had. Mar 26, 2017

  • Way cheaper than a traditional baby monitor. A little confusing to setup, but worth the effort! Easy to control using a free app on my smartphone or laptop. Model: FI8918W Oct 08, 2014

  • It does a great job but my son can see the lights during the night. it doesnt keep him up but at times he is staring at it before putting himself back to sleep. Sep 30, 2014

  • Very cost effective vs. other monitors. Can view the video on your phone also. Sep 29, 2014

    Less expensive than most baby monitors and has so many great features. Listen and view from your phone, take photos, movement alarm, move camera around, zoom and more. Aug 31, 2014

  • Everything that you need from a video monitor at a fraction of the price. Plus, you can monitor through your cell phone! Aug 22, 2014

  • You can connect even when you're not in the house (so you can be on your deck, or at a restaurant and check in on your little one!) Jul 29, 2014

  • So far so good for us. Works great inside the house and outside. We can pan across the room. No zooming, but most dont. If you have the mic and speaker on at the same time there is feedback. Jul 24, 2014

  • Best thing ever. Better mounting capabilities would be nice. But I still love it. Very reliable Jul 24, 2014

  • The image is good. It's CHALLENGING to get set up. iPhone app isn't very good. Jul 23, 2014

  • this is way more affordable than most monitors and i love that i can check my daughter from my phone Apr 29, 2014

    Great camera for a great price. Picks up every little noise and returns a clear picture even if there's very little light in the room. Apr 03, 2014

    This camera is great. Resolution is great. Color and infrared for night is awesome. I love that you can access from all your mobile devices at home and away as well as pan the crib bc he moves a lot Mar 16, 2014

  • Love it, except our first one broke after less than 5 months' use. We hope it was a lemon. I love the ability to see the image from any device in the house. Feb 26, 2014

  • great for the tech savvy parent, I love being able to access the monitor from my phone Feb 16, 2014

  • This works great with two caveats. They are still working out the kinks of the smart phone app. It eats data like crazy if you live in the country like me and have a data cap. I still love it!! Feb 01, 2014

  • This works great with the iPhone. It can get a tad glitchy but we just moved the camera to the other side of the room and all is well now. It travels well, too! Oct 18, 2013

  • Connects with any of my iDevices via the foscam app. A little glitchy but no problems for my geeky tech hubby. Sep 24, 2013

  • I have the white version of this camera. It works great. Love that I can peak in my child from iPhone wherever I am. You can pan the room & take pics too. Great pic quality. Sound is bad though. Aug 27, 2013

  • we had some issues with the first one we ordered (the camera kept resetting on its own) but amazon shipped us a new one and it's been bug free since. Aug 20, 2013

  • this little guy came with us almost everywhere we traveled. kept charlie highly entertained Apr 06, 2013
