Note: www foscam dot com are the same awful company as www foscam dot-anything else.
I paid what i consider to be well over the odds for a Foscam R4 camera, believing it to be a trusted quality brand over the competition. However, for six months I have experienced constant issue with it and in getting any support for it.
The timestamp on a CCTV camera is kind of crucial. Getting and setting the correct time in an app or on hardware is fairly straight forward these days, and a very very basic element of any technology. Despite this, my R4 is totally unable to maintain the correct time! The camera randomly restarts, changing the time to some random time, resetting the camera position to look at my wall, and it loses its network connection. Just what you want from a top of the range, twice the price, known brand, CCTV camera. While you are being robbed, your camera is looking at a wall and thinks it is yesterday!
I have written to Foscam support a number of times, and it is like talking to a brick wall, as they only seem able to tell me to reset the time to the correct one?
Beware, I did not realise it, but Foscam are actually a Chinese company, feigning the professional service and support of a bonafide and legally regulated organisation from anywhere else. Typical.
You may as well buy the half price versions from Chinese companies that don't pretend to be any good, I have two of them and they are far far better than Foscam.
