Does it record video with sound?
Question by: Irina on 23 Apr 2013 21:36:30
Answer by: Phil Stewkesbury (Admin) on 23 Apr 2013 21:36:30
I want to use this as a weather cam. That means pointing it slightly upwards with the sky filling 2/3 of the view.
It it suitable for that purpose?
Question by: Ray on 10 Mar 2012 22:52:57
It should be fine for this.
Please bear in mind that, if budgets permit, an IP camera with a wire-connected auto-iris lens is always going to perform better with widely varying lighting conditions (such as the Axis M1113). The camera is able to open & close the lens iris to regulate the amount of light reaching the sensor.

Is this unit suitable for use inside a cold store operating at -18 degrees C, and at a distance of 300 metres from the pc in my office?
- The unit would be totally inside the cold room.
Question by: Phil on 19 Feb 2012 15:46:23
Sorry, that's too cold, the camera is only approved for use to minus 5°C.
The maximum distance for a network cable run is nominally 100 metres. You can extend this using a Veracity OutReach device.
It's hard to comment on what range you might achieve using wireless due to site factors such as the number and thickness of walls in the way, and the position of your router. Typically the maximum wireless reach would be 30-40 metres. Placing the camera inside a largely metal container such as a cold store will reduce the wireless reach.
Hope that helps.

I have a house in France and would like to monitor activity around it and speak to our French neighbours if we see them passing. I have an ADSL router in the house which I understand will have to be left on while I'm away.
a) how will I contact the camera from my PC in Britain?
b) can I control the camera from my PC i.e. switch on, zoom etc?
c) will the camera link wirelessly to my router through thick French farmhouse walls.
d) are there any on-going costs (other than power) involved when using the system?
Question by: peter t on 10 Feb 2012 13:56:29
a) You simply use your browser on your PC e.g. Internet Explorer to view and hear your camera. You will of course need speakers on your PC/laptop to hear, and a microphone if you wish to speak via the camera.
b) I don't think you can remotely power-down/up your camera via the web. Zoom would be digital-only i.e. this camera does not have an optical zoom lens.
c) It's not possible to say whether your wireless link will work well, it depends on your router, its position, camera position, number of walls in the way, wall thickness etc. We have not received any negative feedback regarding the wireless performance of this camera.
d) EyeSpy247 allow you to use their web portal to access and view your camera free-of-charge for the first year, they tell us that it will then cost approx. £5 per month.
Hope that helps ...

Can I plug the network cable from the camera into a Devolo plug on my home network?
Question by: Colin Rowling on 28 Dec 2011 21:09:30
Yes, there should be no problem with using Devolo 'network over mains' devices with your IP camera.
Bear in mind that this will only extend the network (over the mains) to your camera, it will not actually provide power to the camera. The normal separate power lead will still be required.

We are looking for a webcam to allow our school parents to follow the progress of a major building project. This will require an external installation. We also wish to use it for recording progress within the school and producing time lapse summaries. Would your camera be suitable for this and how close does the camera need to be to the router ?
Question by: Stephen Welch on 16 Jul 2011 20:24:46
The EyeSpy247 EXT will allow scheduled upload of avi clips (or snapshots) via FTP. You would then need some way of converting those avi files into flash or another video format to allow viewers to play via a website, or you could allow downloading of clips to then play locally via VLC or other media player that supports avi video playback.
Alternatively, you could link a camera to an eyespy247 web account and use the secheduling system on the eyespy247 platform to capture images based on a schedule, and then set up a generic guest account to allow your users to login and view the images.
I'm sorry that it's not possible to say how far the IP camera's wireless signal will reach, as it has as much to do with your router or Wireless Access Point and building construction as it does with the camera. It's probably best to test whether your signal reaches the intended installation location by testing the wireless signal reach with a wireless laptop or netbook.

Can I view images remotely on my pc or phone without using your portal?
Question by: Charlie Parker on 11 Jul 2011 15:35:40
Yes. You need to configure your router for port forwarding, to allow your camera to be viewed from outside your Local Area Network (LAN).
And also, you need to be able to find your home/office on the internet, if you have a fixed IP address from your Internet Service Provider (ISP) then you can simply visit the IP address that they allocate to you. Otherwise (if you have the more common dynamic IP address) then you may need to use a free service such as www.dynDNS.com to track your changing IP address and lead you to your home/office on the internet.
Hope that helps ...
Answer by: Phil Stewkesbury (Admin) on 11 Jul 2011 15:35:40
We are looking at using one or more (probably 4) of these cameras remotely, we expect to use extended range WiFi with a directional antenna on the router, and are fairly confident about the range, which might approach 500m direct line of sight.
We need to plan a power budget with either solar or wind turbine or both, can you give me some idea as to actual power consumption in daylight and night modes ? do the movement sensors/alarms add to power requirements ? are there other options which will affect power requirements ? As a ball-park we note the included power adapter is a 12V 1 A supply.
Question by: Don Jones on 9 Jun 2011 18:42:19
We've checked the EyeSpy247 power draw with their Tech Support team and they recommend allowing for the 1 Amp max at 12V DC:
As a general rule we would not advise anything else than 12V 1A as there are many power draw elements in the camera and in any combination could end up drawing max power at any given time.
Answer by: Phil Stewkesbury (Admin) on 9 Jun 2011 18:42:19
This camera sounds great. So it will connect to my wireless router OK? Are there any restrictions to what router it will connect to wirelessly.
By chance I have a mobile data dongle providing wireless internet in my office, I'm using the mifi product from 3, would this work ?
Question by: Mark on 7 Apr 2011 17:25:55
This response from the Tech Support guys at EyeSpy247:
This is not a wifi router we have yet come across so don't know for sure how it would work.
Unlike most other wifi devices IP cameras (not just ours) need to be explicitly told which wifi LAN to connect to and without first being able to configure this using a LAN cable connection to a router I'm not sure if thw mifi product would be automatically be able to see the camera as a device.
Coupled to this, most mobile enabled wifi routers (dongles, etc) don't have real world IP addreses as they are allocated dynamic IP addresses which are normally not internet routable and hence there would be no way of remotely accessing the camera, if that is also what the user needs to do.
The bottom line being, they won't know till they try it but given the fact that the camera needs to be configured first off with the routers wifi details I'm not sure how they would get it to work.
Answer by: Phil Stewkesbury (Admin) on 7 Apr 2011 17:25:55
is the traffic encripted from my router to eyespy's server ie can images be intercepted whilst traveling throungh the internet.
And also what will happen when we move from IPv4 to IPv6 will it stop working
Question by: Ian on 1 Apr 2011 18:16:25
EyeSpy247 Tech Support advise us:
"The cameras upload recordings to our platform using SMTP which is not encrypted on the cameras.
The cameras are currently set to use IPv4 but as and when IPv6 becomes more prevalent we will be updating our firmware to accommodate it."

Is this wireless and is the picture in colour.can use it outdoor and can this one tilt and turn
Question by: ISPY on 1 Dec 2010 00:03:55
Yes it is wireless. It delivers colour images during the day and can use built-in infra-red LEDs overnight to deliver black & white video in low-light.
It is ready to use outdoors.
It's a fixed camera, no pan & tilt functions.

i want to be able to use the eyespy web portal but am concerned about my internet connection dropping whilst i am away. is there a way i can have this working alongside a nas device, and would it be easy enough to do? any suggestions would be great. thanks, james
Question by: james on 5 Oct 2010 22:24:40
As well as being able to upload recordings via email to the EyeSpy247 portal you can use ftp (file transfer protocol to a remote server or even a local one that allows it), then there is recording via http (using both GET and POST protocols), and finally you also have the ability to use a local SMB/CIFS server (which is what I believe most NAS servers use).
You would need to check the particular method supported by your chosen NAS (Network Attached Storage) box.
Hope that helps ...
Answer by: Phil Stewkesbury (Admin) on 5 Oct 2010 22:24:40
Can I use this camera with my own software or will it only work if connected to eyespy's website? Does it come with any viewing or recording software and is it useable on safari?
Question by: alburt on 27 Sep 2010 09:18:21
Yes, you can use the EyeSpy247 network cameras without connecting to their web portal.
The cameras are provided with free CCTV recording and playback software on a CD in the box.
The EyeSpy247 cameras will work with most browsers including Safari.
Hope that helps ...
Answer by: Phil Stewkesbury (Admin) on 27 Sep 2010 09:18:21
Does this camera have proper ir lights or are they bright lights like on the PTZ?
Also, does the video have the nasty purple tinge of the Y-cams?
If it does what I need it might work out better than getting a y-cam and sticking it in a shell so any help on the above would be mighty useful.
Question by: memman on 25 Sep 2010 17:29:49
This EyeSpy247 outdoor wireless IP camera has built-in infra-red LED lights (not white LEDs as used by the EyeSpy247 PTZ).
The colour rendition from this camera is truer than that from the Y-cam's with IR LEDs.
Answer by: Phil Stewkesbury (Admin) on 25 Sep 2010 17:29:49
For the price it is a rather good piece of kit IMHO.
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.... Techno-phobeReview by Bondie
A good camera, well priced and functional. Eyeyspy247 aftercare is fantastic.
However, if you want to set things up yourself, or change routers, then be prepared to struggle for some hours/days.
