Everything You Want in a Network IP Camera - At the Right Price
720p High-Definition Resolution
Remote Pan / Tilt Control
Capture Images in the Dark
The Smarthome SELECT Vstarcam offers an excellent video resolution at 1280x720 pixels (720p) High-Definition (HD) for crystal clear video, so you an always see exactly what is going on while you're away. Via the ioS or Android App, remotely move the camera left and right (355° pan) and vertically (120° tilt). Use up to 15 different presets to automatically go to specific areas you have designated for viewing. There are 12 built-in infrared (IR) LEDs with IR Cut technology that will capture images in darkness down to 0.8 lux (equivalent to the light from a full moon on a clear night) - in other words, you'll have night vision!
No professional installation, no crawling into the attic, no drilling holes to run audio/video cables and no opening walls is required - once setup, this camera simply requires power. Connect the camera to a wireless router, power it up and install the app. Follow a few steps and in minutes disconnect from the router and take full advantage of the wireless connection. Receive an email notification, capture a screenshot, or record high-definition video of activity when motion has been detected using a built-in, motion sensor with adjustable sensitivity.
Use the built-in microphone and speaker (or the optional 3.5mm microphone input and 3.5mm audio output) to remotely communicate via audio with someone at your home or office. Not only can you store video and images to your phone or tablet, a built-in Micro SD card slot allows you to add up to 64GB of data. This can be used to capture video and images just like a DVR. Remotely view 4 cameras simultaneously. This eliminates going back and forth within an app to find a camera. You can conveniently see all the activity from each camera on a single screen.
Not Just for Your Smartphone and Tablet
The Smarthome SELECT Vstarcam Indoor Wireless HD IP Security Camera is primarily designed for use with your smartphone or tablet to quickly and easily keep track of activities wherever you are via an App on your mobile device. You can record directly to your device and even capture snapshots of anything taking place. However it is not limited to these applications.
This camera, as well as the Smarthome SELECT Vstarcam Outdoor Wireless HD IP Security Camera, can also be setup to act as a more typical surveillance system, using your computer as a DVR. PC software is available (see Manuals tab above) that will allow you to install a desktop program, giving you access to all of your cameras (up to 81 cameras are viewable). From this program you can monitor activity, schedule recordings, and upgrade your camera firmware when needed, all from the comfort of your computer.
* Please note: the desktop client is for PC computers only at this time and is not compatible with Apple/Mac computers.
Installation and Use Considerations
Mobile Device AppsWhen using an app for your smartphone or tablet to access your cameras, any video you capture locally will only be playable from that device. These video files are not intended to be sent out or emailed for use other than with your mobile device and is not recommended.
PC SoftwarePlease download/install the PC Desktop Client Software zip file located in the Manuals tab of this page (above) instead of downloading the files from the website indicated in the owner's manual supplied with your camera. The files on this page have been properly formatted for use on all PC computers.
Image Focus AdjustmentDepending on where you install your camera, the focus will likely need to be adjusted to dial in the optimal image for monitoring, taking snapshots and recording video. The image focus is done manually on the front of the camera. The black dial located on the outside of the lens spins both left and right. Once your camera is installed and functioning, simply rotate the dial in small increments, give the image a moment to adjust on your screen to see the change, and continue to make adjustments until you get the best clarity. There is quite a bit of movement allowed both left and right as you adjust, so take the time to get the picture in the proper focus.
Firmware UpgradePlease download/install the Firmware Upgrade Software zip file located in the Manuals tab of this page (above) instead of downloading the files from the website indicated in the owner's manual supplied with your camera. The files on this page have been properly formatted for use on all PC computers. If upgrading the firmware wirelessly, it may take more than one attempt.
MicroSD Card Video FilesIf you decide to use a MicroSD card (up to 64GB) to record video files locally on your camera, you will need a separate video player to view the files. Please download/install the Video Player for MicroSD Card zip file located in the Manuals tab of this page (above) instead of downloading the files from the website indicated in the owner's manual supplied with your camera. The files on this page have been properly formatted for use on all PC computers.

Remote AccessAs with most IP / Network cameras, the Smarthome SELECT Vstarcam IP cameras are designed to work with a specific set of applications for iOS and Android as outlined in the Owner's Manual.
• These apps are for use with smartphone and tablets, and are not currently intended for use with a PC or Mac computer
• Smarthome SELECT Vstarcam IP cameras will not work with Insteon for Hub, MobiLinc, or any other 3rd party software or application
Wireless Networks and IP CamerasThe strength of any wireless connection between an IP camera and a wireless device such as a smartphone or tablet, especially when transmitting HD 720p or greater resolution, is directly related to the quality of several things: • your wireless networking devices (modem, router, access point, etc.)
• the bandwidth you have selected from your Internet Service provider where the camera will be located
• cellular signal strength or the bandwidth available from the Wi-Fi connection you are remotely connected to
• for an HD 720p video stream, your wireless device must also be capable of displaying video in HD 720p resolution
Legal ConsiderationsSmarthome recommends that you research your local and state laws related to audio and video surveillance before implementing this product. Also, if your network uses a wireless router provided by your cable or satellite provider this IP Camera (and most other IP camera's that allow remote access to your network) may not be compatible. This is because wireless routers provided by your cable or satellite company often restrict port forwarding and other wireless router configurations. Please contact your cable or satellite provider for information regarding this.

- Poor Quality Review by Vic
This is a classic Chinese POH (piece of hardware) powered by POS (piece of s… software). The firmware upgrade software triggers a red flag with my antivirus which marks the software as malicious and removes immediately. I have 3 of these cameras and they all work unpredictably, unexpectedly rebooting themselves from time to time. Lost almost $250 on this garbage.
