Product Details

Linksys Wireless-G Internet Home Monitoring Camera, Model WVC54GCA

The Linksys Wireless-G Internet Home Monitoring Camera sends live video through the Internet to a web browser anywhere in the world! This compact, self-contained unit lets you keep track of your home, your kids, your workplace -- whatever's important to you. Unlike standard "web cams" that require an attached PC, the Internet Home Monitoring Camera contains its own web server, so it can connect directly to a network, either over Wireless-G (802.11g) networking, or over 10/100 Ethernet cable. Choose either MPEG-4 or Motion JPEG video compression for a high-quality, high-framerate, up to 640x480 video stream. The Compact Internet Home Monitoring Camera's unique form-factor and wireless connectivity allows you to mount it on a wall nearly anywhere, or slip it into its included stand for desktop use. Once it's connected to your home network, you can "see what it sees" from any PC in the house, while the video stream is secured from the outside world, hidden behind your Router. If you want the video to be visible from outside your home network, you can open an appropriate port on the Router, and then create password protected accounts to manage access to the camera, or leave it wide open for the world to see. You can also turn on Security Mode, which tells the camera to send a message with a short video attached to up to three email addresses whenever it detects motion in its field of view. You can then log onto the live video stream if the situation warrants. The included Viewer & Recorder utility lets you record the audio/video stream to your local hard drive, "live" or on a predetermined schedule. Let the Linksys Compact Wireless-G Internet Home Monitoring Camera help you keep tabs on your world.

            Comments about Linksys Wireless-G Internet Home Monitoring Camera:

            I am an IT manager and run a county wide network to include many wireless devices and this is the worst webcam I have ever tried to setup. I even brought it into the office so my system engineers could look at it and they found it to be completely inoperable as well. Avoid this product or you will waste your time and money.

                Comments about Linksys Wireless-G Internet Home Monitoring Camera:

                The set up wizard really takes the hard part out of wireless network configuration. Compared to a D-link camera I set up three years ago, this was night and day. In all fairness, Linksys was more difficult three years ago as well. Make sure you give the camera a static IP address as they advise. You also need to spend some time to set up the external access whether you use the [*]service or just open up an external port in your router. This is all pretty well documented, and there are some great tutorials on the web for configuring this product. If you are not a network guru you should consider the TZO.com DNS service, it's free for the first year and only $20/yr after that.
