It is an INSMA wireless IP camera and it uses an SD card and it can even be linked to FTP and has a lot of great features. However I need some help setting it up.

I read the instructions but for some reason I my phone can’t connect to the camera. The camera talks and says network connection success but on the app it says it’s offline. I am beginning to regret purchasing this camera because I’ve spent over 2 hours trying to get it to work. I’ve attracted some images. Someone please help!! The app is called NetCam.

Thank you god bless.

Pictures to the camera i have:

Junk....you got ripped off.
I figured. It’s ok though after work I’m going to Walmart and buying the Merkury innovations camera. It has 10 reviews and they’re all good, they all say it was the best 30 dollars they’ve spent. Headed to Walmart right after work.

My situation is that I live in an apartment and I need to find a camera that is battery operated and won’t break the bank. I would get in trouble for drilling holes in the wall.

I do but I can’t drill holes to plug in the camera from outside I need something rechargeable
the walmart camera is not battery operated and both cameras are indoor only. oh and the reviews are fake.

Put a camera on a window sill looking out. I'd suggest the Annke cube I61DR, but it's out of stock.

When I get home I’ll see what happens if I plug this camera into my laptop, maybe it will work.

Arlo, AC free. Still junk, but your solution of running with rechargeable batteries

I have not understood what the camera is for. It appears to be an attempt to use a cheap indoor camera outside.

don't get me wrong, Netgear Arlo is not a bad solution, it all depends on your particular application. It looks like in Dagger case, a wire-free installation is the only solution. I may not call junk to all wireless-battery operated products, but for me is useless since most are not ONVIF compliance. But as I mentioned, it all depends on your particular application. In my case, I carry in my tool box, a wireless IP Cam with over 10 years of good service. It helps me during the adjusting phase of equipment's (looking and heard), located at a separate room.
