    This review is from: Foscam FI9821W V2 Megapixel HD 1280 x 720p H.264 Wireless/Wired Pan/Tilt IP Camera with IR-Cut Filter – 26ft Night Vision and 2.8mm Lens (70° Viewing Angle) – Black (Electronics)
    Day 1 of the new FI9821W Camera. Had the camera setup and running in about 10 minutes. Although, I’m an experienced IT guru and like a few other comments, it’s not exactly for the non-techy to configure and setup. I couldn’t imagine my brother doing this setup on his own. It did take quite a bit of playing with the cam to get motion detection and the alarm settings the way I needed them. The documentation is lacking some serious QA review, one of the reasons for the 3 stars rather than 4.

    The most frustrating part is that my iphone5 iOS App “PRO Surveillance” isn’t working. While it appears the app supports the cam, I’ve been able to configure the cam and remotely access the 8921W. However, I have no controls. None of the control features move the cam. I’ve sent in a request to the App team to inquire.

    I decided to install the FOSCAM Viewer App (didn’t even know it existed before), but even that App had the same issue. I can configure and log in remotely and see the video. I just can’t control the camera with the App. None of the controls work, except the mic/speaker. I’ve also sent in an inquiry to the FOSCAM support desk. We’ll see what happens next : )

    If there are no indications that the Apps are going to work, I will probably return the camera….although, the quality of the pic and speed is much faster than the 8918W.

    UPDATE: I was using an 8 character passwd with a # sign in the password. I removed the # sign and magically got full control of the Camera.

    UPDATE: Viewing this CAM remotely is much better than previous FI8918W that I had (which malfunctioned after 4 yrs, not bad)…

    Decision: Will keep the Camera as it does the job, and the motion detection is much better than the FI8918W.

    Update after Decision: After I got the camera mounted, and started playing with it more, I noticed that the image isn’t as crisp as the FI8918W. It appears blurry around the outer area. The middle of the cam is clear though. This might be due to light as daytime seems to be good. It’s dusk outside and I have lights turned on, but still blurry. Tried to clean lens, no luck. Hmmm….

    This review is from: Foscam FI9821W V2 Megapixel HD 1280 x 720p H.264 Wireless/Wired Pan/Tilt IP Camera with IR-Cut Filter – 26ft Night Vision and 2.8mm Lens (70° Viewing Angle) – Black (Electronics)
    I purchased this camera to monitor a water meter (for my well) in my crawl space. I also use it to check out activity (pests, water build up during heavy rain). Before I installed this camera I would have to enter the crawl space under my deck and open a small door to access. This meant I was going to get dirty and risk the chances of facing a snake (we live in a wooded area) each time I entered.

    Now I only need to connect to the camera wirelessly. The crawl space is not lighted other than a couple of air vents. I can see most of my crawl space (37 x 55 ft) with one camera (IR on). The only exception is that I cannot see the entrance door (it is behind the camera) and the two corners furthest away that face the camera because my HVAC and well equipment blocks the view.

    I do not use any of the alarm features and do not record. I only stream the video – which is not HI DEF but shows plenty of details for monitoring a space. Additionally – because this camera can pan/tilt, it beats any other camera’s that have a large viewing angle that do not pan/tilt. This feature seems to be underrated for some reason – but one camera that can view a majority of my crawl space is pretty outstanding.

    Additionally – I have no issues with low light (there is nearly zero light for me). I’ve posted two pictures one without the LEDs and one with them turned on (manual is the only setting I use). You have to use them to see in the dark.

    SUPERB VIDEO IMAGE, OUTSTANDING LOW LIGHT SENSITIVITY, December 19, 2013

    This review is from: Foscam FI9821W V2 Megapixel HD 1280 x 720p H.264 Wireless/Wired Pan/Tilt IP Camera with IR-Cut Filter – 26ft Night Vision and 2.8mm Lens (70° Viewing Angle) – Black (Electronics)
    I recently purchased a Foscam 19810w and have been very pleased with this camera. I took a gamble and got the F19821w v2 based on some positive reviews (albeit) some mixed. The question arises as to whether the newer HD camera is worth almost twice the cost of the 19810w.
    Pros: Superb, wide video image. Noticeably clearer than the 19810w.
    Both wifi and hardwire network camera connections work well.
    Thanks to the superb work of Robert Chou, this camera is easy to view over cellphone using the IP Cam Viewer application. This application easily displays and controls both the 19810w and the 19821w v2.
    Similarly, this camera (and the 19810w) work flawlessly using the Blue Iris software. Combine the Blue Iris software with a large storage drive and you have a low cost NVR. Blue Iris also has an excellent android app.

    Cons: Like the 19810(see my previous review), the 19821w v2 is not simple to install. A solid knowledge of port forwarding setup is needed.
    Central Management Software is not intuitive. CMS software must be upgraded from what is on the enclosed CD. Select the MJPEG and H.264 version, not the “ultra” version.
    CMS software appears unable to display both the 19810 and 19821 images simultaneously. The CMS software recognizes both cameras, but only the 19821w seems to work with the software.
    Camera has noticeable rainbow effect when a background light source is present within field of view. If main light source is behind camera, video image is outstanding.
    Night IR lighting seems less clear than the IR on the 19810, although it is still very good. I concur with another reviewer who suggested controlling the IR manually rather than using “auto” mode.

    So is the 19821w v2 worth more than twice as much as the 198210w? Probably not with the current software provided. I will update this review to 5 stars when software is stable, and more user friendly. If a superb image is your primary concern, then this is the camera you want. Few if any cameras match this image at this price.

    UPDATE 12/30/2013 . I have raised my rating from 4 stars to 5 for the following reasons: After looking at the IR image for several days, it seems to be equal to or better than any camera I own. Additionally, the low-light sensitivity of 19821w v2 is spectacular. When my other cameras (2 Panasonics and 1 Foscam 19810) are struggling to provide an image (no IR), the 19821w is crystal clear even with the IR off. Additionally, the image colors with the new 19821w v2 are superb. Note that the 19821w does take longer to load an image because of the increased resolution and bandwidth used. Still, the lag is minimal and the crystal clear image more than makes up for the delay loading. Very pleased with this camera. Forget about using the Foscam client software, however…use Blue Iris instead. And for the cell phone, use IP Cam Viewer Pro from Robert Chou. I plan on replacing my Panasonic IP cameras with these new Foscams.

    UPDATE 7/5/2014. So impressed with how this camera has been working, I purchased a second one at a much lower cost from Amazon. For around $100 this camera is an unbelievable bargain. I have never had any problems with my other two Foscam cameras. Highly recommend this camera.
