    "This is a really awful security camera. It doesn't work the way I would want. You can't hear much audio out of it."

    "Price wise, the Foscam systems seem to maintain price stability and have many of the double or triple priced systems The 300 degree panning range is as good as most of the higher priced competition gets. I don't feel qualified to state that open source code is less, the same, or more secure"

    "I was looking for a highly rated home security camera system and this really fit the bill somewhat. You get a very wide view with a really clear picture. It's a clever way to use a webcam, but maybe not the most practical. "

    "The world is a dangerous place, but it becomes less dangerous with a top of the line security camera. If a thief thinks that he will come in the middle of the night to steal from my family, well he has another thing coming with this camera. "

    "I found this to be an OK camera. I found the connection to be dropping frequently and talked with a tech expert who suggested I buy a router extender, which solved the problem. I think Wansview could have spent a little more for a higher quality product with better range, but it does work. The picture is ok, I can make out images, but I guess you get what you pay for. It is ok if you are looking to spend very little on a security camera, just be aware the range is limited."
