Wanted to get a IP camera that allows you to monitor your place, your kid or your office ?
Recently got a Foscam Wireless Pan/Tilt IP Camera from a local company called Matrix IT Distribution. It was a pretty easy transaction. I emailed them, transferred the money and then next day, it was delivered to my place.
I liked the cost of about SGD149 (for a Pan/Tilt camera, this is a good price to pay) and also the fact their support is pretty good (e.g. they produced a write up on how to set up port forwarding in Singtel MIOBOX (2WIRE ROUTER). I have lots of experience with Starhub and my own router port forwarding but never had any with Singtel (I get the feeling it is not easy … perhaps it is, but I dun know..).
So I am pretty happy to have a guide to help me. Truth be told, it is a pretty easy thing to buy a IP camera but the real benefits is the ability to do the viewing OVER THE INTERNET and in our dynamic IP world, some knowledge are needed in port forwarding (for lay man like me :p). And also, this IP camera can record to a NAS too.
I did noticed that it is cheaper to buy in Amazon but that’s without their local warranty and also you need to ship it back.
Anyhow, sharing the photos of unboxing and will share any fun/experience of setting it up in the future.. so many gadgets, so little money !
Guides for both Windows and Mac.. that’s good
