The Foscam FI9820W Black Wireless IP Camera is Foscam's first HD 720p Megapixel IP camera. It adopts a high performance media processor and high speed video protocol processor making it capable of H.264 video compression for extremely smooth video transmission, increased FPS and minimal bandwidth consumption. In addition, due to the small file sizes produced by H.264 video compression it has the ability to save tremendous hard drive space when doing video recording. Furthermore, the FI9820W also features a built-in DVR via on-board SD Card slot for direct recording on the camera itself up to 32GB. It is smartphone compatible (Iphone, Android & Blackberry) as well as viewable over the internet network using the standard Safari browser (no app necessary, no sound).

Excellent hi-def camera Review by Botox
I'm a newby to cameras, but got it installed with Mac, giving excellent picture over Internet so I can monitor second property. Once you learn how to create static IP address with your router, ip camera for Mac works great, and both livecams pro and ip camera viewer work well on iPhone and iPad. (Posted on 12/26/12)
Good camera poor support Review by FARGO
I have a few 9820s camera was easy to set up but only because I am in the CCTV industry. Poor support for mobile devices and apple computers. This is a huge problem. Love the picture quality out of the 9820 though. (Posted on 12/3/12)
No audio on Mac Review by Miles
Nice camera but doesn't supports audio on a Mac. (Posted on 11/17/12)
Not Great on a Mac Review by Specner
The camera doesn't work with audio or motion detection alarm on non IE browsers. Tried it on Safari, Chrome, Opera and Silk. Currently this camera only plays nicely on PC with IE. It is supported on Blue Iris. (Posted on 11/6/12)
Needs lots of light! Review by Randall
These cameras do have lots of features. I wish they had better low light performance. I have three 8910's that work just fine inside my house, but I couldn't see a thing with these even during the day unless I turned on all the lights and opened up all the blinds. When you have security concerns that's the last thing you want to do. These cams would be great for a small business or store where there is lots of light. They just weren't right for inside my 'not so well lit' home. (Posted on 10/27/12)

Installation Issues Review by Jacob
I could not find the Camera in the IP Camera tool with the other cameras older Foscam cameras. Called Tech support and they were able to remotely fix the issue by installing the new version of IP Camera tools. Seems to work OK now. (Posted on 10/10/12)
6 cams Review by kofseattle

Very poor with low light Review by Paul
I have several Foscam cameras (8910s) and the 9820 has terrible low light and IR light performance. I like the SD memory card but not willing to give up night time performance. (Posted on 10/1/12)
Very Poor for Mac Users Review by Ed_in_Maine
I'm using a MacBook with OS 10.6.8
The IPcam Firmware is V22.214.171.124.1-20120807 and UI is 126.96.36.199, which I believe is the latest at this time(9/29/12)
I've used Safari, Firefox, Chrome and Kindle FIre HD. First there appears to be no support for motion detection. Next the low light video is very poor when compared side-by-side with the prior gen F18910W. And finally there is still no audio not even on the Kindle using TinyCam Pro. At least this website says no audio, but the complete lack of motion is a bad joke.
Then just annoying we can no longer change the admin user ID to anything else so security is lessened.
Specifically in Chrome the video flickers badly. There may be a workaround but I just use Firefox. Still this is just another example this camera is not ready, more like a bata version.
I've liked Foscam in the past and have had three F1890Ws installed for over a year and have been generally happy. But I would not recommend this new camera to a Mac user.
Please Foscam give the non- IE browsers some real support. I would love to upgrade all my cameras but not with this one. (Posted on 9/29/12)
potential, but man Review by clyde
set up has been a real pain and i'm still not there. easy things like finding the ip address using the software that came with the camera didn't work. then, putting it on the wireless network took about 45 minutes because the pop up window wouldn't find any networks. finally, it just worked. now, i've got the camera set up to send me a photo every 120 minutes or email me when it detects motion. i'm getting the 120 minute photo, but not getting anything from motion detection. i'm sure i'll get it configured sooner than later and it will be a good camera, but it seems to have been released before it was ready for prime time.

Decent Hardware, HORRIBLE manual and support Review by Greg
This camera is nice but not without some glaring problems. First, the manual is absolutely TERRIBLE. It was clearly translated from Chinese, but by someone who barely has a grasp of English syntax and grammar. The text is literally at a Kindergarten level. The "mobile" interface erroneously allows the user to pan and tilt the camera, even if they are logged in as "guest," which is supposed to be a view-only account. This is a bug. The camera has a built-in SD card, but one CANNOT record video to the SD card unless one sets up alarm zones. Without alarm zones, you MUST leave a PC running at all times if you want to record video because the only place you can record continuous video is your PC, NOT the built-in SD card. USELESS. Even if you want to kick off recording and then exit your browser you cannot because exiting the browser causes recording to terminate. Attempts to call tech support result in a call to India, and the guy I talked to there, while well meaning, spoke terrible English, went for loooooooong moments of silence without acknowledging my questions, and was a terrible communiactor. Can't we make anything in the USA anymore? And if we can't, can't we at least get Americans who speak and understand English, to support it? (Posted on 9/26/12)
