It's a pretty standard camera, it can be mounted on a wall and even comes with screws for that purpose. However, it's packaged with an AC adapter and a CAT5 cable that's each no longer than 60cm. This means that mounting it on a wall in a corner it is too far away from even your desk, never mind the wall plug for the AC adapter. So unless you have this standing right next to your router or switch, you will have to buy an extra CAT5 cable and some flex to splice into the AC adapter to reach anywhere useful for "surveillance". Also, I could not get the camera to operate on WiFi. The AP shows it as connected, but the internal setup website simply doesn't load and no camera software detects it. Thus this is effectively a LAN-only product.

Everything works if you follow the steps properly. Wifi and LAN works all the time. Image quality is very bad. This is not a modern camera but it works well if you need it to monitor something during the day or in a brightly lit room at night. It also has a built-in microphone and works well as a baby monitor.

Very poor picture quality and the viewing angles are just as bad.

The unit does what it says, but the field of view and resolution isn't great. The ac adapter cord had to be lengthened as it was very short. It set up easily and got the wifi working okay. However doesn't have IR so cannot be used at night. Just got the Clever Dog camera, and for an extra R200, it is way better - going to get another.

Bought the camera as to use as a nanny cam. Very straight forward to set up and use. So satisfied I've ordered a second one. Won't recommend using it in big spaces. I bought one that can pan 360 and tilt 90 drug for the family room but using this little camera in my son's room and the kitchen. Returning to work one of these days and so glad I will be able to see my son via my iPhone.

Decent enough camera. Setup is ridiculously easy. The only snag I hit was the setup program was prevented from running by Windows 10. The workaround is to open the Command Prompt as administrator and manually navigate to the optical drive and run the autorun program.
Everything works as the description states. Run the setup, use the included ethernet cable then setup the wireless settings.
My only negative rating is that the maximum resolution is 640x480 and the field of view isn't too wide at all. But at this price I can't really complain.
Updating the firmware over wireless is also a breeze. And the camera integrates seamlessly with the DNR 202L recorder (also stocked by Takealot). But Takealot do sell slightly different models of this camera but both bundled under the same product code. One version integrates out of the box but the other could not be detected by the recorder. A simple firmware upgrade on the recorder fixed this.
Overall a very good camera for a DIY security setup.

The camera works well in lit up areas. its serves its purpose as a basic surveillance option. it is relatively easy to setup. The length of the power cord should be longer to allow you to mount the camera in better areas.

It does what I need it to do, but getting it to work wirelessly was a hassle. That being said, since I figured out the wireless it's been rock solid since, even after swapping routers. As long as the SSID and password are the same the cam just does its thing. I have no issue checking in via 3G on my iPad, but the streaming speed at 640x480 is 1-3FPS, despite having 1Mbps upstream. It's ok and works well, but wait for a sale because it is not worth R800.
