I have had a Foscam FI9821 hanging outside upside down under an overhang, for 3+ years in the northeast. For something that's suppose to be indoors to survive that long is amazing.
Disagree I had several of these FI9821 that worked perfectly for over two years, and they're still working for someone else now, for over a third year of service. For an inexpensive 720P camera, this is an EXCELLENT deal.
I have 27 IP cameras which includes 15 being Foscams (3 being the old 8910 which still works for over 5 years, used at less important area) installed in 3 different locations, 1 of them is my business which has 10 IP cameras.
I must admit in over 5 years, a coupe of them did die on me. I think 4. But overall, they have been reliable to me. I have 2 of them outside under the sofit. Survived PA winters.

I have them feeding back to Blue Iris (cost $60... definitely worth it). For quick access, I use web browser to view them remotely. I also view them remotely using ipads as I can rotate through cameras.
On iOS, I use Livecams Pro and IP Viewer Pro. On Android, I use Tinycam. They all work great.
When Foscam 9821 V1 first came out, it was the first 720p and it was about $100. The V2 came out later and it was $100. I did buy several of them at that price. With all the newer versions now with 1080p and other features (like Wide Dynamic Lighting in the C1), the price for these drops as expected. I don't mind 720p as it is clear enough for me. I fear 1080p would hog too much bandwidth. I do have 3 amcrest being 1080p so I do place them depending on the importance of the location. Like Amcrest 1080p at the front entrance door of my business for face recognition... and the old foscam 8910 in the closet so I know the employees hanging out in the closet. I do have a foscam 9810 V2 used as a baby monitor... still do now.
In short, I definitely recommend these. These works just as good and won't break a budget. I do recommend Blue Iris to go with these if you have more than 4 IP cameras.

What's the difference between the 9821 and the 9816? I have a couple of the 9821 and they're good for what I need.

My two Foscams (FI8910W) died after about 4 years. That was constant on for those 4 years.

I was hoping consumer electronics would last longer than that but I guess 4 isn't terrible.

I have 5 foscam cameras. 2 of them are the FI9821. The motor to pan the camera died in one of them so I moved it to a location I didn't need that feature. Overall for the price I like them. I will add I've had one of the FI9821outside, but covered by an overhang, for almost 2 years and had zero issues with that one. It's survived Denver winters and summers. Bugs seem to love the infared lights though so they will cover the lense from time to time.

They're ONVIF capable. No browser plug-ins necessary after the initial setup. And there are settings in Firefox and Chrome to allow plugins besides Flash. Finally, other browsers (like Pale Moon) still allow and support plugins.

I will agree with you about cloud-based cameras. Wouldn't trust them, won't ever trust them.
