Belkin's NetCam lets you keep an eye on things from anywhere


Belkin has just released the new NetCam – a device that allows users to monitor their home or office with a free smartphone or tablet app from anywhere.

Buy something else


They're cheap.

They're cheap. The frame rate is awful, if you want to record video you need to subscribe to their online service (which they charge you for). If you're somewhat tech savvy you can get to the video stream through a security exploit, (however with the...

Waste of Money


I have been working with tech support for days and cannot get this camera to work within my network, and I have a very, very advanced network. The camera will work on the smart phone a little, but not on the network. You have no MAC address provided,...

Its Great for the Price


I started with one and now I have four. While on vacation, the Alarm went off, We Called our house sitter and was able to watch and listen as the sitter and police went through the house to assure it was secure. What a great piece of mind. We were able...

Easy set up. Works as advertised. I find it works all over. I liv in Jersey and I viewed Pictures and video while in Hawaii. Real Time and Live.

OK, not the best picture in the world. Sometimes jumpy, somtimes it freezes, but really, for under 100 bucks, it's to be expected.

Updated EggXpert review


I just wish I would have had the time to test this product more thoroughly back when I first received it. That way my initial review would have been more accurate. As it was, I had a few different products to review at that time so I felt somewhat...

First of all I want to point out that this is an updated review. I felt the need to provide this update after testing this product more thoroughly. Very easy to set up. The free Android app is simple to use and has a very basic layout that just about...

The documentation is simply horrid. It's not that it's just basic, it's completely devoid of info regarding the features offered by this camera. The recording function is not detailed at all and it's not clear if this camera supports PoE or not. All...

Product - Bad. Support - Even worse.


Don't waste your time or money. Belkin support site shows "Oops, page not found" for every link associated with contacting support for this product.

Relatively inexpensive, compared to other similar models.

Can't access them outside of my home, even in a DMZ. Belkin suggests to lower the quality to 1 fps so it will work. Unacceptable.

Updated review after new firmware


I will update again and believe this camera has to potential if the software issues can be addressed.

Please read my review below. I am unable to add to it so I have to write a new review. After updating the firmware I waited for 2 days before the camera finally connected back on it's own. As of now, the camera is more stable so I am going to give it a...

Still not performing like it should be after the newest firmware update but I believe Belkin is working on the bugs at this time as the newest firmware has corrected the "5 minute time out." This was one of the biggest issues for a lot of people as I...

Nice little camera - many issues with software


Belkin, please address these issues. You have a very capable camera but the software needs to be ready before releasing this to the general public. I have been trouble shooting for over 2 weeks to get this to work right and after the latest firmware,...

Camera quality is decent for the price (600x480) and excellent audio range. The camera range is great for setting up in a room to be able to view either in full color in well lit rooms. It does change to black and white of course when it is dark and...

This camera has several issues that need to be addressed. First, I had to install the software twice to make it work. Nothing else worked as it would not connect even after changing settings and turning the camera off/on and even unplugging. No big...

OK Camera


You can not set this up on a computer. I tried several ways and it just is not possible that I can find. Wired connection is only 10/100, yet it has wireless n, why no gigabit connection with wired? Description say it has 640x480, 320x240 and 160x120...

Easy to set up (with iDevice or Android device) decent video quality Good sound quality can record to your smart device Easy to move around, just unplug and then plug it back in, it remembers connection info. Will send e-mail alerts with pics if you...

Must have an iDevice or Android device, no Windows Phone support Unable to set up on a computer Can not record to a computer Included instructions are poor is a little warm to touch (not hot or dangerous, but I was surprised that it was as warm as it...

Affordable Night-vision Monitoring


I always make sure to get a camera with audio capabilities just in case there is a situation taking place that moves off camera. I've had one issue when my network gets unstable. The camera never got reinitialized to the router. I do have about 3...

Setup was very easy to do, and follow the instruction pamphlet. Wireless setup via an Android smart phone was extremely easy to follow. The step by step wizard guides you through the process. Image quality is decent for this type of camera. Network...

The WiFi range is not great. If the device is with in 10 to 20 feet of a wireless router it seems to be pretty good. The frame rate seems to drop drastically after this point. At about 50 feet I cannot get a connection to the router. The router can see...
