4 out of 5 stars   Very nice IP cameras...setup a little difficult
By D from SFL (Miami, fl) August 28, 2014
Review submitted for Foscam 2 pack FI9821W v2 1.0 Megapixel (1280x720p) H.264 Wireless IP Camera - Black (E1FOSFI9821WB)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Good IR vision, good user interface, good picture quality.
Cons: Very difficult to setup for remote viewing, even with tech support. Not really there fault since I don't have a vanilla router, but not that far from mainstream. Their tech support got me on the right track and I got both cameras working. If your not somewhat Techy this could be a nightmare.
Other Comments: None.

4 out of 5 stars   Nice camera
By palmjet (Palm Coast) August 05, 2014
Review submitted for Foscam FI9821W V2 (Black) 1.0 Megapixel (1280x720p) H.264 Wireless IP Camera (FOSFI9821WB)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: I like the motion detection in this camera, it works quite precise. The build quality is also very good and the camera provides a clear picture.
Cons: Camera locked up a few times, needing a power reset. That's very unhandy if you are not present at the time. Maybe a new firmware will help. The camera was still reachable with a ping test, but I could not find a way to SSH in the camera to reset it that way.
Other Comments: The Foscam Ipad app is terrible and a work in progress. The Windows program is much better.

4 out of 5 stars   Nice camera, easy home network setup remote viewing setup was a challenge
By First time Foscam customer June 14, 2014
Review submitted for Foscam FI9821W V2 (White) 1.0 Megapixel (1280x720p) H.264 Wireless IP Camera (FOSFI9821WW)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Great picture, able see in color in low light, good night vision, easy setup with home network. Remote viewing, pan & tilt, motion detection area/zone setup, can capture picture(s) and notify via email, recording, viewing angle was decent.
Cons: The camera makes a noticeable click sound when switching from normal to low light (to night vision) such as when you turn off the light in a room. Setup with home network (wifi) was easy. However, when I tried to setup to view from remote locations like at work or over 3G/4G, it was frustrating. The instructions manual did not help. Tried googling and got a bunch of instructions and suggestions that were too technical for me to understand. Called tech support the next day, waited about 3 minutes, talked to a person. He asked me to download and run a small program (to assign a user name & password) to give him access to my computer. He went in, changed some router settings, typed some instructions for me to follow. Downloaded the Foscam app onto my iphone, updated settings per his procedures and was able to view remotely over 3G. Also tried the Foscam app it on the android phone and also can see over 4G.
Other Comments: Have not tried the audio yet.

5 out of 5 stars   Foscam FI8921W V2 purchase
By Jay Cash (San Jose CA) June 11, 2014
Review submitted for Foscam FI9821W V2 (Black) 1.0 Megapixel (1280x720p) H.264 Wireless IP Camera (FOSFI9821WB)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: I love the sound and video quality of the new HD camera. Mine is up and working. The interface is also much improved on the app and the sound works both when viewing from a remote PC as well as my iPhone.
Cons: The camera required both a system firmware update and two application/software firmware updates which was easily found and downloaded from the Foscam website under the support tab. The script in the zip file did not work, but I updated each file separately and that worked just fine. The iPhone Foscam Pro application does not work with this camera but the Camera viewer 4 Foscam Lite app works great ( I paid for the in-app upgrade to get rid of the advertisements). I also have a FI8910W and both are working with that app.

5 out of 5 stars   Foscam FI9821W V2
By Daveb (Illinois) June 10, 2014
Review submitted for Foscam 2 pack FI9821W v2 1.0 Megapixel (1280x720p) H.264 Wireless IP Camera - White (E1FOSFI9821WW)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Good quality images Good night vision Can monitor over the Internet Price at BuyDig competitive, possibly best on the Internet Prompt attention to security issues with new firmware(FW)
Cons: Set up is a bit daunting for the non-technical person Set up for viewing over the Internet would require help from a tech-savvy friend Several recent firmware updates addressed security issues but FW updates are also require a techie to apply for most people
Other Comments: Now own 4 of these units and may purchase 1-2 more.

4 out of 5 stars   Great cameras!
June 01, 2014
Review submitted for Foscam 2 pack FI9821W v2 1.0 Megapixel (1280x720p) H.264 Wireless IP Camera - White (E1FOSFI9821WW)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: I have 4 of these and have been using Foscam for 4 years now. Foscam has had firmware issues in the past, but seem to have stepped up their game a bit in the last year. These cameras can't be beat for the price. Awesome HD picture and reliable connectivity
Cons: Connection time is a couple of seconds with the HD models.. my SD model is almost instant. I completely understand HD requires higher bandwidth and compression which all takes time, but I would like if it were a bit faster. I also would like more of a wide angle lens.. these are great, but a bit wider would be a plus
Other Comments: Great cameras, you will not be sorry if you pick a few of these up!

Review submitted for Foscam FI9821W V2 (Black) 1.0 Megapixel (1280x720p) H.264 Wireless IP Camera (FOSFI9821WB)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: Good picture quality Good control of scanning Versatile mounting options Good night vision with controllable IR and IR cut filter Reasonably good instructional videos Instructional docs are so-so (see below) Fairly easy to set up on your network if you understand networks Easy to set up external network access if you understand routers and ports Will sync time to Internet time sites (URL or IP)
Cons: Not particularly easy to set up Some docs have not been updated to have images from the latest firmware/software Not that easy to set up on your network if you don't understand networks Not easy to set up external network access unless you understand routers and ports Have not gotten motion detection to work yet. Some third party mobile apps (for purchase) have not been updated for the latest camera/software versions -- wait before buying Quirky DST setting -- must specify number of minutes to advance for DST
Other Comments: Very good cost/benefit ratio Bought 2 -- Considering buying 2 more

Review submitted for Foscam FI9821W V2 (Black) 1.0 Megapixel (1280x720p) H.264 Wireless IP Camera (FOSFI9821WB)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: IR low light condition is great Camera quality is good Price isn't bad
Cons: - There is no wizard to set this up, you need to understand networking, port forwarding, etc. and be comfortable debugging and figuring things out yourself. - Very confused initially on how to get SD video record upon motion. I messed with directories and formatting, still didn't work. To be honest, I can't remember how I finally got it working, but it had to do with selecting the correct (and confusing) options via the browser UI - Plugins and browser compatibility is spotty at best. I found I had to use a combination of chrome, firefow, and internet explorer (multiple version of this browser too!) to get everything configured. Looks like there is a firmware update for IE 11 which may help. I'd recommend to use IE for the most part as it seemed to work best. - I ended up use Live Cams for iphone for remote viewing with no-ip DDNS. That worked well.
