It's a clone of the FosCam FI8918W or better FosCam FI8910W.

I've a Foscam FI8918W and it's grand.

Make sure you can turn off the IR LEDS, or else you won't be able to use it looking out the window at nighttime as the IR light with reflect back. (bad glare like the sun shining directly at it).

If you're using it to monitor a driveway or the like, don't expect much from 640x480 resolution, and it doesn't record anything.

My FosCam only sends 5 photos when it detects motion, but it's motion detect is sensitive to light changes, eg. sun going in/out behind the clouds. So you can get "spammed" by it, sending 50+ e-mails a day to you. I even had GMail temporarily stop my account for so much activity, but they reinstated it within an hour.

I got both the Wanscam - Wireless Night Vision Outdoor IP Camera (Waterproof, IR 20M) and the Wanscam - Wireless IP Surveillance Camera with Angle Control (Motion Detection, Night Vision, Free DDNS). Too be honest I haven't tried very hard to set them up, hadnt the time, just tried it a few times on laptop, but my laptop isnt working the best so could be the reason why it wouldnt set up for me. I am going to try it on my main pc. The outdoor one seems good, just have to set it up. think i paid 40euro online for it, for the two,the whole lot came to 100 including the VAT,75 and 25 vat!I saw similar one in power city and it was 79 for the indoor one alone.so seems good deal.

If you want to setup recording Zoneminder is pretty good (and free):

Just need a cheap linux box somewhere in the house, maybe that HP server that was going a while ago.

I was looking to get one as the neighbours keep letting their dogs into our garden but mam insists that she heard it that it was illegal to put them up yourself on Joe Duffy, anyone know anything about that?

You have every right to record anything on your own property.

I think it starts straying into a legal issue if your camera is recording your neighbours property. Not sure about public streets... but imagine they're fine as there's internet webcams all over the place.

Am fairly sure that the software that comes with it allows recording but you have to leave the computer with the software on it on all the time (or at least when you want it to record.
