Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Foscam FI8910W Pan & Tilt IP/Network Camera with Two-Way Audio and Night Vision. The BoolPool rating for this product is Very Good, with 4.20 stars, and the price range is $84.95 - $99.99.

The Foscam FI8910W features high quality video and audio, wireless N connectivity, pan/tilt, remote internet viewing, motion detection, night-vision, embedded IR-Cut filter as well as a built in network video recording system. In addition, it is smartphone compatible (iPhone, Android & Blackberry) as well as viewable over the internet using standard web-browsers. The camera functions well as an iPhone baby monitor or as part of a home or office security system with remote internet monitoring ability.

The FI8910W distinguishes itself with an embedded IR-Cut filter providing enhanced picture and color quality. The IR-Cut filter automatically adjusts the lighting exposure via mechanical filter to provide true and accurately colored images that are not washed out. In addition, the FI8910W has an upgraded and higher quality external housing as well as an included 2 year extended warranty.

Some buyers found this IP camera hard to install and setup as it requires the knowledge of networking. The software seems to be substandard and many features do not work on Mac computers. A few reviewers also complained about poor technical support from the company.

Overall, Foscam FI8910W Pan & Tilt IP/Network Camera with Two-Way Audio and Night Vision is a perfect IP cam for nearly any home use - surveillance, keeping an eye on your kids, your pets, or your cars - and just as important, it's extremely affordable.
