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

Tempting, but it's still only VGA. Maybe it's fine for monitoring a small room in your home, but I need something with higher resolution.

European version sounds problematic beyond the french.

Much of Europe runs on different power standards for homes.

Anyone have definite knowledge that the power adapter has a USA style plug and works on 110 house current?

Never mind - I reread and see that it does include a USA adapter

Thanks!

Guess the easiest thing to do is:

a. mount them in corners near ceiling opposite room entrance to capture most of the room or,

b. mount them inside at windows to capture some of the outside perimeter.

Focal distance and field of view may be issues but like others said, it is cheap enough to give it a try .

i think what they mean is an external wireless network adapter, something like a router thats been flashed with dd-wrt and acts as a wireless bridge to your main router.

only has wired ethernet otherwise.

Android smartphones can do 720p for $10, they're in english, and the wireless works. $30 you might be able to find 1080p video. Still images will be 5-8MP in that price range.

Android smartphones work if you don't need IR like the OP.

Indeed! I have 8 cameras on my home LAN. 4 are cheap USB webcams plugged into a Pogoplug that has linux installed and runs "motion" software that streams hd over the lan/wan with motion detection. The other 4 are old android phones running ip cam Android app. I also have one of those $80 motion wireless cameras that show up on the front page every other week and have millions of 5 star reviews on Amazon. No question about it, for the phones, the picture quality, features and ease of setup are the best! Only problem is, they do get hung up occasionally and require a reboot. The Pogoplug / webcam system comes in a close second for its extreme reliability (been running for years without ever touching a thing), fantastic video and the cost with 4 cams from dollar store and a cheap usb wifi adapter puts the cost at under $30 including dvr/recording capability! The expensive, highly acclaimed wireless network camera: cheap, broken already, took days to configure due to useless/broken/old software and manuals. Once configured, I discovered it could not travel even 20ft from the WiFi router without losing network connectivity. The video quality on that cam was okay, but nothing like the Gen1 Moto Droid cam or the $2 usb cams! The only positive, it includes nightvision lights... So, IMO, modern/cheap mini digital camera technology is vastly superior in every way. Dont even bother buying one of those big fancy "security monitor" camera systems! Any old dime sized, digital cam will beat that ancient analog crap any day!
