I do not have wireless connection, where the camera will be, but will have a CAT5 wire to connection to the router. Is this suitable? And is there a better alternative for this sort of connection? (Am I paying for the wireless functionality which I do not need when an alternative would do.)
Question by: Simon on 25 Feb 2012 18:13:48
Yes, you can use a wired network connection to this wireless IP camera.
You're not really paying a premium for the wireless capability; there isn't a similar/cheaper camera without the wireless capability.

looking on your video it looks like you have to pay to use EyeSpy247 Servers if so why? i thought it be a Wi-Fi to my router and not to your servers.
all i need is a Wireless IP Camera free from hidden cost
Question by: kevin on 21 Sep 2011 19:29:57
EyeSpy247 offer their web portal service which makes it easy to access your IP camera on the world wide web and also as a service for saving and accessing video clips and images saved from your camera.
They offer this service free of charge for the first year to anyone who purchases one of their cameras. You do not have to use it, and are quite welcome to configure direct access to your EyeSpy247 camera if you prefer.
Answer by: Phil Stewkesbury (Admin) on 21 Sep 2011 19:29:57
Is it really as easy to set up as you say.
I have been reading about IP cameras and often I see that I will need to start messing about with things such as "port numbers", static and dynamic IP adresses.
Quotes such as:
"If you don't have a static IP address for your Internet connection, you'll need to use a service that can assign you a permanent address for your camera" all sound very confusing.
I want a camera set up at home so that I can see my dogs are ok whilst at work.
Question by: Paul on 5 Nov 2010 12:56:05
"Easy" is a relative term - it depends on your experience with IT & Networks.
The EyeSpy247 range are amongst the simplest to setup, and they perform well. Using their web portal to access your IP camera(s) normally enables you to bypass the technicalities of configuring port forwarding in your router or using a DynDNS service to track a changing web IP address at your home. Their cameras and software use plug 'n' play technology to setup your router, and their portal service 'keeps in touch' with your router and learns if your web IP address changes.
We recently helped a customer to set up this EyeSpy PTZ to monitor their dogs at home from their office, they were so pleased with the camera that they bought and added another.
I hope that helps ...

Are the white leds illuminated all the time? If not, what switches them on and off?
Question by: Dave J. on 5 Aug 2010 13:48:20
From the EyeSpy247 PTZ manual:
"These White Light LEDs are designed for the supply of backlighting while under the low-light environments. The LEDs can be turned on by Event Trigger when the light is insufficient. They can also be manually turned on/off on the View Video Screen."

I bought a Y-Cam SD off you and I have been disappointed with the strong pinkish cast to the trees green leaves and other vegetation. If I was buy this camera would it produce natural colours as would not have bought a Y-Cam had I been warned about the colour cast
Question by: Geoff Welding on 30 Jul 2010 20:00:20
Sorry to hear that you were disappointed with the colour rendition from the Y-cam.
The colour rendition from this EyeSpy247 camera is much better, as it has not been adjusted to accept infra-red illumination; it uses white LEDs to illuminate the scene in the dark.

I'd like to monitor my holiday home for security purposes i.e to confirm when guests and cleaners arrive and leave. I've recently added broadband at the property through BT and have installed their wireless router which is 802.11n or 802.11g compatable, is this the best product for my requirements, I like the fact it's easy set up and free to monitor through eyespy247?
Thanks very much
Question by: Mark on 2 Apr 2010 18:57:03
Yes, the EyeSpy247 PTZ offers the advantage of easy setup and free access via their website.

Question by: Ray on 31 Mar 2010 14:23:46
Check the information on page 46 of the manual on the CD supplied with the camera for some further information on connecting to the I/O port on the EyeSpy247 PTZ camera. I'm afraid we haven't looked into compatible devices yet.
Answer by: Phil Stewkesbury (Admin) on 31 Mar 2010 14:23:46
Can I access the cam from a laptop? Sounds like a silly Q but in all reviews I have not seen a laptop mentioned only PC.
Question by: Pete on 6 Mar 2010 15:38:53
Yes, no problem accessing the camera from a laptop rather than a PC.
Bear in mind that it is a 'network' camera, which needs to connect to your wireless router.
Then you can access it from any PC/laptop.

I love the idea of this product but I really want one with the features but for for outdoor, I see you have some outdoor IP cameras but cant see any that you can pan and tilt with ?
Question by: shawn williams on 28 Jan 2010 09:41:35
Take a look at our Axis category, go to page 2 of the list of Axis products; Axis 215 PTZ-E, P5534, Q6032 are all outdoor-ready straight from the manufacturer. We can also provide suitable weatherproof housings which allow you to use Axis 214, 213, 231, 232 and 233 IP cameras outdoors.
We also have a separate category just for PTZ Cameras - most can be housed for weatherproof outdoor use.
Answer by: Phil Stewkesbury (Admin) on 28 Jan 2010 09:41:35
Set up really was a breeze with my BT router and I didn't have to perform any port forwarding whatsoever, something I can't say of my experience with my previous set of Y-cams.
The picture quality ...
