Hands On Research
I have tested this product in my back yard for that last 4 weeks and cannot be happier with it. I also have the INSTEON Wireless IP Camera in my home, so set up took no more than 5 minutes. The image quality is spectacular with vibrant color. Though there are no pan/tint functions on this camera, it is perfect for the application for which I was using it - monitoring my back yard. My back yard extends 50 feet so I cannot comment on the 98 ft range; however I can say that in daylight, at 50 feet, I could see the individual leaves on my Palm tree which was really impressive. I did do extensive testing at night. Within 10 feet of the camera in absolute darkness I was able to recognize a person's face. Within 20 feet, you could recognize a person if you already knew them and could definitely recognize approximate height, weight and gender. At 40 feet face recognition was difficult, however approximates for height, weight and gender could definitely be done. One last note - in the last 4 weeks Southern California has had torrential rain. This camera was exposed to the elements during that time without issue.

    KILOWATT -- cave creek, AZ   7/1/2014
    Thought I'd wait a while to see how this replacement works. It's doing the same greenish images of nothing and the white "ghosts" the earlier ones did. I guess that's the way they are. At least, this one emails the pictures of anyone at my front door. Maybe someday in the next decade or so, Insteon will fix these issues. Maybe not. I feel bad I recommended these cameras to others. Please try to do better! Kilowatt
    JOHN -- dallas, TX   4/13/2014
    Not so impressed with this camera.
    JOHN -- dallas, TX   4/13/2014
    I had a great deal of problem getting this camera to work continuously for several months. It now works (nine months later). I had much better luck with the PTZ camera.
    DAVID -- san leon, TX   4/8/2014
    Seems to work with hub but perhaps my hub is the issue as it is not always on. I did get it to work all they way through my network to public as I did have to reconfigure a portal. Picture is good for the price
    JAMES -- mount joy, PA   3/9/2014
    if you like to do support via email communication, I would avoid purchasing from Insteon. I've been trying to resolve an issue with a camera purchased on 2/7/2014. As of 3/10 i still have not received a requested WMA to replace a transformer/power supply that stopped functioning. if you have time to sit around wait for their backlog of telephone calls to be answered you might have better luck.
    JOEL -- apopka, FL   3/9/2014
    We didn't even set this up because of the problems setting up the indoor IP camera by Insteon. The other reason why we returned this product was the electrical connection needed. We would have had to purchase an electrical distribution panel to connect the power cables unless we were willing to install outlets at every camera inside and outside of the house. We have decided to go with a dedicated NVR camera system which runs PPOE instead of this all in one Insteon home automation. There is potential for Insteon but they need to redesign the user interface and truly make the system "away from home" functional.
    Matteo -- Milwaukee   2/14/2014
    I really like the other Insteon PTZ IP cameras and their integration with HUB, but this one is beyond useless. Field of view is only 25deg., so at 50' you only see an 7'x10' area. With that field of view, it is only useful to cover a normal entry door, and only if you can mount it 40-60' away from building / door. Don't let the demo image on the device info page on this site fool you, in order to get that view, the camera would had to have been across the street at a neighbors house 200ft away. Add to the fact that you need to mount it at least 50ft away from the building to cover an area the size of a door and the limited WiFi range this thing has, puts it at non-usable for any application you might want to do. Also it's the size of a wine bottle and shiny, so trying to mount it to your house without making the place look like a prison is not an option. Insteon - please fix this thing and put a lens on it that has a normal field of view for an outdoor camera like 70 degrees, also please try to shrink it down a bit too. Better yet, scrap this model and just build an outdoor dome version of the model 75790 cameras you already have.
    Craig -- Illinois   1/8/2014
    camera is junk. company wont help. I didn't believe the reviews that it is junk, but it is. Camera won't stay on. Company says only way to get new one is to buy a new one and then ship old one back. Problem for me is it's 5 hours away. They give 30 day return on junk one, but I'm not going back to house for 45 days. They won't give you any other options and won't let you talk to customer service managers
    MICHAEL -- cincinnati, OH   1/7/2014
    Much better mounting hardware than prior version
    Tom -- payson, Arizon   1/2/2014
    I am not sure if this camera. We purchased it for our home in the mountains where the temps are much cooler than Phoenix. Mounted it on a deck, hooked it to wifi and can access it from in the Valley. HOWEVER, right around 8:30am it crashes -- screen goes black. Looking at the manual, that means we have everything hooked correctly but the wifi may not be strong enough. I am not buying it. It will come back on about 4ish or so and be on all night so it doesn't make sense that the sun would make this camera crash -- BTW, the camera is under a deck and current temps are in the 30s so having it 'heat' up past 120 degrees is unlikely. Going to call tech support and if they don't have an answer, it will be sent back.
    Peter Hawtrey -- natick, MA   12/16/2013
    Judging from the operating specifications and my experience, this is not an outdoor camera in any part of the country north of Dallas. It is also unreliable, in any temperature. My camera keeps disconnecting no matter how I hook it up to my intranet. I tried wireless , powerwire modems and, finally, wired LAN, but the camera disconnects and reconnects 20 times a day and finally, after a few days, gives up. If I power it down and then up again, it starts all over. So, I do not recommend this camera unless you are just out to have fun and learn about IP cameras. You are better off investing in a much more expensive camera from a company like AXIS if your application is serious. I am surprised that Smarthome does not offer a better line of cameras. This one looks like its from Foscam.
    Bmo -- California   11/4/2013
    This one gets two stars from me for 1 reason. The setup was easy, and it stays connected as long as you have a insteon access point nearby to boost the hubs signal. The camera however has such a terrible field of view that I can only see about 6'x6' worth of area from 25 feet away. I have no idea why they chose this type of lens, but unless you are sitting on half an acre of property you aren't going to see much. I am going to return and see if I can fit one of the insteon pan/tilt indoor ip cams into one of those foscam outdoor dome enclosures.
    JAMES -- reno, NV   10/3/2013
    this thing is driving me nuts.. I broke the antenna and then ordered the high gain one offered--it didnt fit. I adapted it and it works sometimes. this may be the only insteon product that I am not impressed witn
    RADU -- mississauga, ON   9/1/2013
    Shipping was very fast. Installation was simple but the support mechanism is too weak for such a big, heavy camera. Software is good. Please add feature to record 3 min video on ftp on alarm. Lens is too narrow for a still camera. Maybe add lens accessories to it. Overall I'm pleased with the purchase. Thank you!
    Thom -- New Mexico   8/28/2013
    I returned one of these because it kept crashing. When the replacement did the same thing, I consulted with SH Tech always helpful. They suggested I bring the camera inside and see what happens. Sure enough, it performed perfectly. It seems the camera can tolerate a temp 120 degrees inside the housing. The camera generates it's own heat. Combine that with the heat of direct sunlight and -- crash. So you must carefully select where the camera is placed. It's narrow field of view is one consideration. The other is finding a spot in the shade -- all day. It starts to become very limiting. Other than that... ok.
    doctorbeermeister -- santa ana, CA   8/22/2013
    Fairly easy to set up - however the instructions provided were not much help - I used the video tutorials from Foscam. The unit appears well made and IP Camera Viewer 3 from the App Store looks great. The bracket is cheaply made, so I will probably replace that.
    KENNETH M. -- acton, ME   8/18/2013
    Worse than junk. 99% unreliable. Returning item.
    DAVID -- state college, PA   8/17/2013
    The camera has a 12 inch cable hanging from the unit into which you plug the ethernet cable to link it to your computer. Very odd. What to do with the cable? Why not a jack in the back of the unit?
    DANIEL P -- lexington, MA   8/6/2013
    TOO BULKY, but a really nice bang for the buck. Very obvious mounted on a home and should have other than silver. Don't want much for 119.00 do we? lol sorry, YOU ASKED!!!
    RODNEY -- mount vernon, NY   8/3/2013
    no problems
