I have had the pleasure of reviewing quick cams in the past to use with laptops and desktops that had no camera built in and was delighted to be able to skype and to chat with people around the world at no extra cost. This cam is a bit different in that it does not require a full computer to set up. With the advent of hand held devices such as the iPad or Galaxy tablet or any other hand held device, you can set up your cam to either record action on its own or taking pictures automatically just by movement in front of the camera. That means that this unit could be primarily a security device that can be viewed by a hand held device anywhere in the world.
I found that the picture is remarkably sharp and clear. Every time something moves across its field of vision, it will take a picture and send it to your email which means that it actually alarms you when something moved in front of the cam. This feature alone makes this unit worth its minimal cost.
I would definitely endorse this product as a must have , even if you wish your house watched while you are one holidays. Great product, the Belkin NetCam HD!
