    • Best answerNo Batteries; It requires household AC-line power; it has a small block transformer that plugs into a regular outlet, and has about a 6-ft long connection to the terminal power connector that plugs into the camera; much like a portable radio might have. Also, this model has no pan/tilt/zoom capability; it sees what it sees, based on where you place it - the only way to change the view is to just physically move the camera (with your human-hands).

  • Q: Can you see at night thru a window with this camera?  (6 Answers)

    By Anonymous 

    • Best answerYes, it will see through a window at night; however the image tends to be degraded by reflections bouncing off the inside of the window. I have mine set up to shoot through a window; the window-blinds are behind (more 'inside') the camera; but at night, the inside lights cause the image of the blinds to be reflected off the inside-face of the window, and back into the camera lens, making the image somewhat noisy. Clean the window real well; and the more 'straight-on' (90 degrees/right-angle) you can point the camera at the window, the better. The more slanted it is, the more reflection you will get.

  • Q: remote recording? Can you use this in a cottage up north and control it on a computer at home?  (6 Answers)

    By Renogaw 

    • Best answerYes, you would need an Internet browser that can run Java and/or the MyDLink Lite app on your smart phone. Note, however, there are limitations on what you can "control," remotely. Since the product does not have tilt/pan functionality your image is static. That said, with the 1150 you can turn sound on/off, take a picture, switch between day/night/auto mode, turn sound detection on/off, turn motion detection on/off, and turn extender mode on/off.

    • Best answerThis lag time is about 1/2 a second. The notifications come quickly and I am able to go right to the camera from the notification and see what is happening. For me I was surprised and impressed.
