New wiki pages: Foscam FI8918W and WPA2 for WebDT 366
« on: April 07, 2011, 03:00:35 am »
Hi all, just a few new wiki pages for those who are interested.

The Foscam F8918 is the newer version of the IP surveillance camera with pan and tilt controls.

http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Foscam_FI8918W

Also for those who still have WebDT 366 and want WPA2 security:

http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/WebDT_366_WPA2

I know most of this will be superceded when the new pad orbiter stuff comes out and probably with the newer android stuff too bu it is a cheap addition. Only no resume from suspend at this stage.

Thanks for great wiki page.

I'm looking really hard and can't find better webcam for this price (60-70$). And also found some great resources for Foscam webcams:

I found non-Foscam branded clone on dealextreme, but not sure if new firmware will work for it:

Where did you buy yours and how much did you pay for it?

I got mine off ebay. I think about $90AUS. Try to get the genuine ones as I think somepeople have problems with the fake ones. Do a search on google for more info but I remember when searching around some of the older model (8908) fakes people had firmware updating issues.

I just ordered one from Dealextreme for 66$ + free shipping, after import duties it will cost me around 90$ also. I read comments on Dealextreme page and last two guys that bought it few weeks ago had no problems with updating with Foscam firmware so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Cheers,
