5 out of 5 stars   Taking the low cost into account, this is a great purchase.
By Dadoo (NJ) February 06, 2015
Review submitted for Foscam FI8918W Wireless Pan & Tilt IP/Network Cam w/Night Vision - White (FOSFI8918W)
Verified Purchaser

Verified Reviewer
Pros: IR works great in my 15x30 room. I like the removable antenna, it allows the user to use a stronger antenna, if they choose. It comes in black and white. The 0.3 megapixel limitation is enough for my needs, it's like an old camera phone as far as resolution. Can be used wired, via Ethernet. Has jacks for using an external microphone and speaker, more on this in the "cons" section. Pans and tilts sufficiently for my needs. It is very affordable. If you need better resolution, the prices increase a lot. This camera is good enough for my needs.
Cons: Can be difficult to setup, depending on your level of experience. I had to learn port-forwarding and using a DNS server. Not impossible to learn but it takes time. Can be noisy depending on what you want to use it for, my baby sleeps through any camera movement, yours may not. No volume control for the internal speaker, can be startling. I am looking for an alternative using the speaker jack. Internal microphone is weak, I have an external mic for my critical cams. Instructions need a revision to simplify and make more "American" sounding. I did get mine up and running following the instructions but I can see how some may have an issue with the grammar. The DNS server you are instructed to use is free for 2 years, I believe, I don't know what the costs would be after that time. You can use a different (and free for life) DNS server. If you look on Youtube, there is a guy named AwkwardHamster and his videos will help you setup on a different DNS.
Other Comments: Despite all the cons that I listed, I still give it 5 stars because of the value. To have all of these features for under $50 and be able to use it with your smart phone AND not have to pay some crockpot security company a monthly fee, I believe this camera has earned every star. Buydig.com had the best price for these cameras

4 out of 5 stars   Good choice!
By Mick (SoCal) October 26, 2014
Review submitted for Foscam FI8918W Wireless Pan & Tilt IP/Network Cam w/Night Vision - White (FOSFI8918W)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Less lag (delay) than earlier models. This helps assure that subject matter is captured "in-frame" and fast moving subjects are observable. Relatively inexpensive, having good range and video for a "low end" camera. Very good low-light sensitivity and night vision.
Cons: Color not accurately reproduced under any lighting condition (I.e.; green trees appear blue to blue-grey).
Other Comments: Excellent low cost camera for surveillance or monitoring (local or remote).

4 out of 5 stars   Purchase and Installation of a Foscam FI8918W Wireless Pan & Tilt IP/Network Camera with Night Vision
By Vazinho (Summit, NJ) October 16, 2014
Review submitted for Foscam FI8918W Wireless Pan & Tilt IP/Network Cam w/Night Vision - White (FOSFI8918W)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: The camera works extremely well and reacts to the commands as instructed. The night vision is surprisingly good
Cons: The software is not very friendly and requires a lot of attention. It is rudimentary at best. Be sure to read the instructions and install the software before connecting or putting on the camera. If the proper sequence is not followed the programs will not work well and become very difficult to correct unless the user is somewhat adept with computers.
Other Comments: My reason for not giving the product a 5 star rating is totally due to the accompanying software. The camera itself deserves a 5 star rating.

4 out of 5 stars   Not a bad startup unit
By Seaweid (Auburn, California) June 18, 2014
Review submitted for Foscam FI8918W Wireless Pan & Tilt IP/Network Cam w/Night Vision - White (FOSFI8918W)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Cost / Ease of use & hardware setup / Size - small
Cons: Setup instructions could be better / not "geared" for apple - imac computers and some features are NOT available if you use apple products / software for use with iphone & ipad does not work as good using FOSCAM software from their company site is poor. Still looking for third party software to use.
Other Comments: This camera is a very good entry into security IP camera services. It is the low end, but if all you want is a good everyday INDOOR camera it will do fine. I am not sure the range to router with the supplied small antenna but mine is only forty feet from the router so it transmits well. Also.. for those that are asking about hidden cost/fees to review camera online, as far as I can tell it is all free at the basic level.

2 out of 5 stars   Very Mediocre Product
By Felix (Cincinnati) June 18, 2014
Review submitted for Foscam FI8918W Wireless Pan & Tilt IP/Network Cam w/Night Vision - White (FOSFI8918W)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: 1) Nice packaging
Cons: 1) difficult to set up with respect to a wireless router 2) pan and tilt function doesn't work 3) very poor written installation instructions (chines translation)
Other Comments: Would recommend DLink version of this for about same price. Too much of a hassle to return and replace. Think I'll just live without pan and tilt capability. Great delivery service from BuyDig.

5 out of 5 stars   Foscam Wireless IP cameras are exactly what I needed.
By ecdc (Cleveland, GA) June 16, 2014
Review submitted for Foscam FI8918W Wireless Pan & Tilt IP/Network Cam w/Night Vision - Black (FOSFI8918WB)

Pros: Function well. Provide the ability to set up motion sensitive email alerts. Also provide the ability to hear and speak to someone in the area of the camera. Picture quality is more than adequate as well as the night vision function. Ability to control (adjust) the camera remotely.
Cons: A little difficult to set up. It helps if you know a good bit about wireless networks.
Other Comments: This is a great alternative for those who want to manage their own security for a reasonable amount of money.

Pros: Price
Cons: Read the fine print.....these cameras must be wired to your modem in order to work. Once that is complete, the unit will "wirelessly" transmit the images from the camera to your phone. [...]

4 out of 5 stars   Camera set up
By Bonnie (Idaho) June 10, 2014
Review submitted for Foscam FI8918W Wireless Pan & Tilt IP/Network Cam w/Night Vision - White (FOSFI8918W)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: I have it sitting on my window seal. Can scan the front yard with my computer or phone.
Cons: Cannot figure out how to get it to work from away from home. There is a way to do it but my computer skills are not up to what it takes to set up. The infa red won't work through the window. You get glare but was not intended for this app in the first place. I wanted to go a less expensive way to try it out & see how it worked.
Other Comments: Overall, it's a pretty nice little device.

(Chicago) June 02, 2014
Review submitted for Foscam FI8918W Wireless Pan & Tilt IP/Network Cam w/Night Vision - Black (FOSFI8918WB)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Relatively easy to hook up Price Wireless Admin Page has all the option easily laid out
Cons: Video quality if OK at best. Does not encrypt outgoing feed (The IP Cameras DDNS, IP Address, User Ids and Passwords are exposed in the clear), usually in a text file. [...]
Other Comments: For the price these cameras are a good deal. I would not suggest these types of cameras for any sensitive viewing (baby cam etc..) and would only use WPA2 security. You can use a VPN to secure outgoing data, but that requires a machine to always be running.
