I guess the new firmware by foscam supports web UI and support up to 9 cameras. Saw this somewhere when I Google sometime back.Will put the link if I find it.
then am using FI9820W of foscam which is a hd one. I bought it only because its was the only good quality hd cam i could get in my budget.
IP cams still need a DVR to record to- yes no need for a $1000 capture card any longer- but you still need a higher end core i7 system with a decent hard drive for HD cams.
The main advantage to IP cams is ease of installation because you can run just a single cat5 run to each camera, and you can easily do firmware updates with the cams in place.

I believe this will depend on your network security, and not the camera since they are connected to your network. So, if you've got a pretty good security network then I don't think it should be an issue.

I feel safer when leaving home since installing my foscam. I also got this little app for my iPhone for easy remote access called Cams2Me. I get a live video feed and audio if I want it plus alerts if anything's going on and best of all I can record any and ALL activity. For anyone interested its at Cams2Me.net .. bought mine at Apple Store (you can put on iPad too) tunes.apple.com/us/app/cams2me/id757008976 Best Luck with your set-up!
While the Foscams (and other 640 x 480) are good, they are nowhere near as good as HD cams and for the price, the HD cams are a much better value.
I've been using them daily for 8 months - they are very unique and sophisticated IP Cameras. The motion detection i
There was some problems with Logitech running out of supply - for months - but now they seem to be coming back on the market according to reports from customers on the Internet.
I like the cameras so much - I have made them the first supported camera for a new software I am writing. If you have a Logitech Alert camera and want to help me test the new software - please contact me. Than you. (P.S. I'm not associated with Logitech, I'm just a customer of theirs).
Also they are IP66. You can buyy dedicated NVRs for them on ebay for about $400, which includes an 8 port POE Switch. Whats also cool about the NVR, It supports Third Party cameras, so you could probably use your current Logitechs on them.
