I've set up IP cams before so I know my way around port forwarding and DDNS and to my surprise I didn't need to do any of that with this camera. Bonus!
I registered for an eye spy account via their site, typed in my login into the camera's camera registration page and within seconds - and I mean that - the camera was all set up for remote viewing 'and' recording from my eye spy account. That said, within a few minutes I had loads of recordings on my account due to my moving the camera around the place and stuff - but hey it actually worked.
As for the camera itself, very good quality on the build front and has impressive features for what is really marked for home use - as I can't see many home users making use of the functions the camera has. But for business users or more advanced users who want to record to a NAS box etc everything you need is there out-of-the-box.
I did have to update the firmware on it (as my camera's software was a couple of versions behind - since I bought it second hand off someone). But the good folk at eye spy pointed me in the right direction and now all set with the latest firmware.
All in all a great little outdoor camera and quite different from the standard bullet type ones you'll find elsewhere.
However, if you want to set things up yourself, or change routers, then be prepared to struggle for some hours/days.
Some brief details of my experience. The best bit has to be the ease of setup, it took me literally a few minutes to get everything setup and working with my router and also eyespy's web portal. Equally impressive is the portal itself (but that's another discussion really).
The quality of the video is really quite good and it is a true day night camera with good daylight colour rendering. The nightvision is ok too but can't really give that much info on this as I have floodlights outside so don't really make use of the IR lights built into the cam but from what I have seen it does have good reach in pitch darkness.
It's a very compact unit compared to bullet type cameras and fits in very well into the confined space I've shoved it in. The connections look ok in terms of waterproofing but it hasn't rained that much so not really put this to the test.
The camera has a lot of features that I'm still finding my way around and you can end up spending a lot of time tinkering (as my wife has already complained about!)
The two things that did let me down was the zoom and the colour. It does have lots of zoom capability but as its digital zoom it becomes very pixelated and I can't imagine it will really be useful any more than say x3....and it doesn't come in any other colour than white and is a bit of a giveaway even in the dark.
However I'm nitpicking as I think its a great bit of kit given the price and what you get for it.
