This is a great price for these IP cams.

To make setup easier go here and read the reviews:

http://www.amazon.com/Vivotek-TC5...bJ-3_0_0_0

Then go here and get the manual for the Vivotek IP7137:

http://download.vivotek.com/downl...ual_en.pdf

Then go here and here for the new software:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Vivot...0643903955

and:

http://www.vivotek.com/web/downlo...nload.aspx

Under All Categories go to Software and get the IW2 (Installation Wizard 2).

This camera is not for the faint of heart. You probably should have some tech abilities and understanding to set it up, and some knowledge of French since this is the European version.
You Tube may also help:

Or search for more under Vivotek.

Good Luck!!!

Unfortunately, there is not much info on this item.
As I said above it's not for the faint of heart, but as far as image quality the 5 star Amazon review is all there is. The 1 star review has to do with that persons ability to connect the camera wirelessly.
But for $15 it may be worth the effort.

im assuming that this either plugs in directly to ethernet or you have to use something like router with dd-wrt in bridge mode to use it wireless.

I'm certain that Rakuten's website doesn't say 91% off of Amazon's price.
