does that mean the export sets sold by Marix won't be covered by warranty in Singapore?

cos I see them carrying "12 Months Repair Warranty (Carry-in) for Factory Defects" for the export sets too.

so what's the difference between the $129 and the $199 other than the SD card and the PSB power adapter?
My guess is got repair warranty but no support in SG. Go back to factory for tech support. If totally no warranty. They shld put as no warranty for export set.

Hi all, for the clicking sound in vStarCam T series even in the latest model it's still there. May I confirm there's nothing we can do about it ?

I read that there was a reply from the factory that it's a normal behavior for the camera.

If I buy the export set, means it come with out the approved adaptor hor, will the unapproved one catch fire especially if the vstarcam is left 24*7 ?

After using the Eye 4 app for my T7838WIP for a few days I found it almost use up my data plan usage..I guess it's normal that I need more data if I plan to use my ipad to monitor ?

Or it would be better to use the webUI instead ?

For peace of mind, go for Local set, at least you know they paid at least 20-30K to test the power adapter for "hours" to ensure your family safety.


If you go for EXPORT sets, don't blame these vendors if your home caught fire due to the adapters caught fire. Just that simple. You took your own risks

Err, high resolution means more data flow, means more data usage. If you set 2048kbps resolution and watching, your machine is sending our 2048kbps to you, so over a long period of time, you can imagine how much data you use. I use WIFI if I need to be a "security guard" while I work

Relay clicking sound you mean when camera switches between IR to non-IR?
