5 Reasons For

Foscam Has Good Webcam Reviews

On average Foscam built-in microphone webcams have good reviews as do all webcams built by Foscam.

Has a Motion Detector

The FI9821EP has a motion detector. Most of the other built-in microphone webcams that have been around for more than a year do not have a motion detector.

We compared all the other webcams with a motion detector to this webcam and we think the D-Link DCS-5000L-E[plb_3580133_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

We compared all the other webcams which also have a motion detector to this webcam and we think the Samsung SNH-V6110BN[plb_3418909_price] is also worth considering.

1280x720@30fps Resolution At Capture Speed
