Product Description

This Wifi b/g wireless IP camera has its own built in web server. You can view the video from your own home network or you can configure your router to view and control the camera from computers or cellphones on the internet, without dependence on any third party web sites or subscriptions. With the built-in microphone you can listen in. Excellent MPEG4 or MJPEG video quality at a full 640 x 480 resolution with up to 30 frames per second for fluid, natural motion color. For viewing or recording a single camera no software is required besides just your browser. For viewing or recording multiple Sharx IP cameras the included MultiView software for PCs supports up to 4 Sharx IP cameras simultaneously. Truly amazing to see the streaming video on your web enabled cell phone. For frequent use we recommend to upgrade your cellphone service to unlimited data, which costs just $15/mo extra on the ATT network. You can see motion even on non-3G phones like SonyEricsson w580i. If your phone does not support video you can see automatically refreshing JPEG images. At home, you can use this camera with your laptop or iPhone as a baby or pet monitor, and the very high light sensitivity in "moonlight mode" allows you to view out from a window to see what's happening in the street as long as there is some background light available. For night vision in absolute, total darkness with no visible light, upgrade to SCNC2607 which adds infrared night vision and a higher quality, wide angle lens. Wireless operation supports WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption. On routers with UPnP feature the camera can set itself up automatically, and on routers without UPnP (such as Apple's Airport series) the camera can be set up with our step by step instructions.

    I was looking for a reliable 802.11 wireless monitoring camera. I tried two other brands. One would need rebooting every few hours to keep it functional. The video quality on the other was poor.

    I decided to try Sharx camera, after reading the reviews on Amazon.

    I have been using this camera for a week now. It didn’t need rebooting like the other brand. The picture quality is amazing as compared to other two brands that I tried.

    Cons:

    The manual may be little a difficult for someone not very familiar with computers. But I believe this is overcome by the excellent customer support.

    Pros:

    Excellent Video Qaulity.

    Reliable Motion Detection.

    Excellent Customer Support.

    Good integration with free dynamic dns, for accessing it from outside (linksys required paid service)

    Email from Gmail SMTP server using port 465 (Not possible with the other two brands that I tested)

    Moonlight mode for night video

    Overall a very well balanced and reliable camera.

    This product is fantastic. It is packed with a lot of great features. Even though there are a lot of advanced features, as long as you have the most basic knowledge about your network, you will have no problem setting this thing up and running in no time at all. I was totally amazed at the amount of detail in the manual. It is written in English (not dumb pictures that make no sense) and is full of detail. It talks about iPhone Apps you can use and third party websites to register your home IP Address automatically so you can always access the camera from outside your house. Everything you could want to do with this camera is discussed in great detail in the manual, I cannot tell you how impressed I was in this day and age of weak user guides that are just basic pictures and that is supposed to tell you how some advanced piece of networking gear is supposed to work. Great job Sharx, you earned my future business. Oh, and the email support was prompt and full of detailed information and that was on a weekend.

    The product itself is quite robust in the features that it offers. It comes with PC software (to bad for us Mac users) and a manual, if you could call it that without laughing. The physical installation was simple and the built-in server works very well. Unfortunately, the configuration of the wireless can be a headache for the non-techie. I consider myself and ubberteckie and I was baffled by the many times I had jump back and forth in the manual; from the beginning to the appendix… back and forth. Whoever wrote that manual was basically spewing all their random thoughts on paper and never bothered to look back. I hate to rate the product so low because of how well it functions. But I felt I had to warn those using the wireless features connectivity. The wireless transmitter is also very week.

    I bought 3 sharx cameras to watch my new nanny. the set up is very easy, just read the enclosed user manual and follow the directions. within 15 mins i got the video image live on my home computer. the cameras are installed in living room, baby bed room and dining room. all 3 video can be seen in one control window. (i use the app called Multilive, which is included in the setup CD)

    i emailed the web addresses of the cameras to my friends, they tried it and everything worked well for them too.

    to watch the live video at my work though, is another story. my company has very good firewall, blocking pretty much every port. each of my cameras need an open port to work. port 80 is common for internet use, tried that first and it worked. if you experience the same difficulty watching the video from work, just try the following steps: in the camera setting screen, click network, then click UPNP. change the external HTTP/RTSP port range to 80 — 80. for multiple cameras, you need to contact your IT department to see what other port numbers are available. try 8080 and 1755, they are common open ports.

    Watch Video Here: http://www.amazon.com/review/R3ITTPMBZ9UCU0 I purchased this camera mainly to use with my Smart Phone. It was easy to setup and can now view live video on my phone or any of my PC’s.

    I use this camera mainly to view wildlife behind my house. I have motion detector flood lights that light up the area at night, so I normally don’t need the Moonlight Mode, although it does work great in low light.

    The attached video was taken at night without using the Moonlight Mode. I’ll attach another video showing what a video looks like with Moonlight Mode turned on.

    This is an amazing camera and has a very sharp picture. I do wish it had an external mic jack like my SCNC2601. The audio is much louder and more sensitive when using an external mic. An external mic jack is on my wish list for the next smart phone supported model. :-)

    Comparing this camera to my SCNC2601, I would say the SCNC2606 has a sharper picture but I do like the SCNC2601 for it’s Pan and Tilt capabilities and its external mic and speaker jacks. Both are great cameras and work great locally or over the internet.

    Excellent Day Time colors! Purchased this camera along with the 2607 because the day time colors on this one are better. Both cameras have great video quality, even on my iPhone!

    After researching and trying other options for monitoring my newborn daughter’s nursery, I chose the 2606 because it offers a wide variety of features for an affordable price. Combining a wide angle lens, a low light setting (be sure you enable the “moonlight” setting to get maximum performance), and several simultaneous streaming options including some with two-way audio, the 2606 is a very versatile camera. Unlike some other wireless IP cameras, the 2606 offers several levels of encryption including WPA2-PSK which was a huge selling factor for me. Another HUGE selling factor for me was the cross platform compatibility since my primary system is a Fedora Linux machine. One thing to note on this point is that the included software is Windows only but it’s only used for the initial setup of the camera (really it just scans your network to determine the IP address of the camera). However, all you really need to know after you plug the camera in is what IP address was assigned to it. Once you know the IP address, all settings can be set through a web browser regardless of platform. After installing the included software, simply plug the camera into your router and run the software and your camera will be automatically detected (again if you know how to determine the camera’s IP address then you don’t even have to install the software). The camera also has built-in motion detection and alarming capabilities so you can be notified via several options such as e-mail whenever motion is detected in view of the camera. If you’re looking for a great wireless camera and you don’t need total darkness vision (if you do check out the 2607), then the 2606 is a really nice camera which offers plenty of technology for a reasonable price.

    Watch Video Here: http://www.amazon.com/review/R2MMRHQ2WX4EEC This camera has excellent picture quality, even when light level is low. This video was taken vedry late afternoon on a cloudy day, and with the “moonlight mode” it looks almost like a bright day, except motion gets blurred. If there is more light the motion is clear with 30 frames per second.

    “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover” was never more true in this case. I wanted a camera of higher quality than your typical web-cam, so while I was scrolling through the results of “wireless cam” I initially missed this one due to it’s visual similarity to webcams. But then I saw how highly it was rated and decided to try it. After owning the cam for over a month, I could _not_ be more impressed! It has all the features I was looking for and then some. Most importantly, onboard continuous loop recording to a SD card (or to remote servers), uploading of images to a remote server when motion is detected, and password protected web access (both through [...] or through active streaming using a viewer such as VLC).

    The other reviews have covered most things that can be said, so I’ll only try to fill in a few more blanks. The quality of the picture is excellent for the price. However, the moonlight mode does (understandably) drop the fps, yet unfortunately it still didn’t quite have the sensitivity I had hoped for. There is a street light outside of my home, and although I can see fine with my eyes, the picture is completely dark even in moonlight mode. That’s not too much of a problem though since the night-vision version is more appropriate for that use anyway.

    Here’s a quick run-down of all the settings available, since I don’t think they are documented very well in the detailed specs:

    Camera Setup:

    – Light frequency

    – Image rotation

    – Moonlight mode on/off

    – Power (activity) LED on/off

    – Show FPS

    – Mic on/off

    Stream Setup:

    – Independent Primary/Secondary/Mobile stream image size/framerate/quality settings

    OSD Setup:

    – On Screen Display (overlayed on video) configuration

    Wireless Setup:

    – Infrastructure or AdHoc modes

    – WEP, WPA, and WPA2

    TCP/IP Setup:

    – DNS settings

    – Configurable ports

    – Basic or Digest Access Authentication

    PPoE Setup:

    – PPPoE dial-up on/off

    DDNS Setup:

    – Service, host name, username, password

    UPNP Setup

    – Universal PlugAndPlay Enable/disable

    Alarm Setup

    – Motion Detection (up to 4 configurable zones of sensitivity)

    – Schedule Setup (configurable alarm schedules)

    – Alarm Management (FTP/email/[...] of snapshots when the alarm is triggered)

    – Periodic Sending (FTP/email/[...] of customizable timed periodic snapshots)

    Alarm Server Setup (configure FTP/email/[...] servers)

    SD card Function Setup:

    – Record on alarm on/off

    – Snapshot on alarm on/off

    – Continuous record on/off (and this does truly loop, deleting oldest files to make room for new ones)

    – Snapshot at interval on/off

    – SD card FTP sending on/off

    – Browse SD card

    – Format SD card

    Tools:

    – System identity

    – User management (can add login users, turn anonymous access on/off)

    – Date & Time (configure time servers)

    – Backup or Restore settings

    – Firmware Upgrade (can only be done by support)

    System Tab:

    – Shows SD card status/space, wireless strength, active users, etc.

    Although it’s true as others have mentioned that there’s no phone number for customer service, only email, they are incredibly responsive, and they truly know the product. You can expect a rapid reply that truly addresses your issue and not just canned unintelligent replies. If you buy this cam, be sure to contact them immediately, as they will download new firmware to your camera that fixes bugs and adds new features. This should be done right off the bat since the firmware overwrites your settings.

    For the money, I don’t think you can go wrong with this wireless camera!
