Very Nice By Darryl Hey on 4/11/2017Darryl Hey would recommend this product to a friendi took a chance and bought the camera and i haven't regretted the purchase.
Very easy to set up less than 15 min and has a great view of my tank from anywhere .
Tanking viewing when away By steven on 4/1/2017steven would recommend this product to a friendThis was very easy to set up and connect. I haven't had any issues. Overall quality is good, not great. App is also easy and user friendly. I have a 20L and wouldn't recommend for any smaller. Overall does what I need and I'm able to check in on my tank wherever I am.
A good start, but needs improvement By Charlie on 3/22/2017Charlie would recommend this product to a friendBought this to check in on my tank while a friend was taking care of it while I was away on business and it definitely does its job well enough to serve that function. The iPhone app can be a bit glitchy and will freeze on certain menus, but I had no issues getting the camera set up and running and I've yet to experience the connectivity issues that others speak about. My biggest qualm is that the viewing angle is quite limited in smaller tanks. I've got it running in my nano, and I can see maybe 2/3 of the tank with it placed as close to the top corner as possible. It would be much better suited to larger tanks, or would benefit nicely from a fisheye attachment for using it to view smaller spaces. Overall it does what I purchased it for well enough, and it's been a fun way to drop in on my little ecosystem while I'm away.
Not worth it By Datahoe on 3/17/2017Datahoe wouldn't recommend this product to a friendI had high hopes for this camera but it really isn't that good. The connections were problematic, I had difficulty reconnecting once i opened the app again. The quality really isn't that good. If you change the resolution it takes forever for it to show up properly.
Good idea, bad execution. By Chip on 3/3/2017Chip wouldn't recommend this product to a friendToo expensive for what it does. I had high hopes, but it doesn't do what it does well. You're better off getting a regular IP cam and using it on the outside of the aquarium. I haven't been able to get remote viewing to work. It says connected but there is no picture. It also randomly changes the frame rate to 5fps and I don't know why. Local network viewing seems fine, but I had to set it up on two devices and it kept saying i was putting in the wrong password even though i hadn't changed it yet. I just don't think it's a finished product and it just isn't worth the price.
It needs work. Not ready for prime time. By Chip on 3/2/2017Chip wouldn't recommend this product to a friendSave your money. Too expensive and it needs work. You have too use the app so it can't integrate with apex fusion media and you can't view it in a browser. The app randomly lowers the frame rate to 5 fps for seemingly no reason.
Does this camera support any of the streaming standards that can be integrated into the Apex Fusion Dashboard? IE: RTSP, MJPEG?
Currently the camera is only supported through the downloadable software from Icecap.
Have a great day!
Does this camera have auto white balance to adjust to light spectrun changes throughout the day?
Also, I see no mention of infrared. No lights out capability?
Does this product offer remote (non wifi) cellular data streaming, or is it only viewable via a wifi connection?
The ReefCam is currently only able to connect via a wifi signal to your internet and does not have the ability to connect via a cellular data signal.
Have a great day!
