    So does this camera, by itself, not record video? From what I'm getting you have to be "lucky" to receive the email right away from the camera and begin recording yourself?   (2 Answers)

      Answer

      You have to subscribe to their service and the camera will start recording videos automatically and will be stored in their server. Without the subscription, they record still pictures of anything he camera thought moved including shadows, lamp shades or sunlight reflection. Then, you get bombarded with emails after emails of false alerts that you still have to go through in case something did happen. This could take a few hours of your time. The camera itself is ok but not the best. Look for something else.

          does it broadcast its own ssid? I want to be able to connect my phone(using wi-fi) directly to the camera without using the internet. Is this possible?   (3 Answers)

            The short answer is no -- to view the camera feed the camera needs to be connected to the internet via wifi, and you can only stream the video from the Belkin NetCam servers. The camera does not broadcast video directly via wifi. The full answer is that the camera only broadcasts its own SSID when it is in Configuration mode (there's a switch on the back to switch between Configuration and Camera mode). While in Configuration mode you can change your phone to the same network and access the camera's settings through the Belkin NetCam app. However, once you have made the desired changes, you need to switch the camera back to Camera mode to have the changes take effect and for the camera video to be accessible in the app from your phone. The camera and the app do a surprisingly good job of poking the necessary hole in your router to be accessible from the internet, but this convenience of course is creating security implication that you may be trying to avoid based on the context of your question to stream the video on the same ssid!

                No. You will need a dedicated wireless router to make this work.

                  Yes you can. If you only want to monitor your business, it's fine. But if you're thinking of using the motion sensor, forget about it. It'll pick up any shadows and light changes and you'll get multiple false alerts.
