skip vstarcam if you don't want to fall into a pit of headaches.
I'm enjoying this.

Im looking for a wireless camera to monitor baby(only when shes sleeping and my parents is in the living room)

Don't require it to be connected to network nor storage.. just mainly a live stream view and preferably on mobile phone and have internal battery

Thinking to get those in-car camera where they already have app for wireless view... any other recommendation?

i rather buy dlink products over foscam honestly. Their motor is lousy, i xhanged my camera with marix 3 times when they distribute foscam back then when motor failed to work. 4th time found motor dislodge somemore when i insist they open up to show me why it fails. End up swap to vstarcam. ps: marix did 1 to 1 exchange. new stocks somemore

I have refunded my buy but I don't mind sharing my experience.

I have no idea on what happened to the camera that I have bought. I set it up as per normal, got the stream from the camera to my laptop using the software provided online. There was no CD included inside the package. Only a very simplified user manual asking me to download their software on a website.

It works but after some period of time, the whole camera will go offline as shown by the software. Offline as in not just the connection to my router is down, but it will not even record on its microSD card until I switch off everything and switch it back on before it works for a while.

The distance of the camera from the router is less than 2 metres. Which shouldn't be any issue but apparently this was not the case.

All of my devices connected to the router is working fine and will not disconnect. Just that camera.

The day before I went to ask for a refund, I have to switch off and on the camera for around 20 times or even more. Sometimes the time gap is just less than 5 minutes before the camera went offline.

Luckily those people selling me the camera didn't ask me to connect using LAN cable. Or else I would have retorted back to them saying why will I want to use LAN cable if I bought an wireless device.

I even asked them whether any buyers encountered the same issue. They told me that some encountered the same issue but the issues are solved by upgrading the firmware, fixing a static IP for the camera etc. Which I find it not really believable as it happened to not only 1 camera, it even happened to the one which I went down for an exchange.

I got very afraid of China brands already. I would rather pay slightly more for a better device. Lesson learnt.
I've got the same experience as you. Initially after I boot up the Vstarcam, everything works fine. After some time like 2-3 days, the camera just rotate back to its original position. Also, when I tried to access the microSD card files, the software eye4 cannot connect to the camera.

Still considering whether to live with booting it up every 2-3 days or refund it. Need to waste my time and parking to go and get a refund. Hope people here have some solutions to this problem.

I'm considering Dlink 5222L @ $189. Any other camera better? Does 5222L have build in speakers or do I need to buy one to plug in?

Dun b shy lah, go do the distribution for vstarcam. Factories normally mailblast to trading n security camera companies to try promote their product. Othwerwise, they won't disclose their price list.

Same goes for those that try to sell metal to metal traders, I get tons of emails everyday

U can distribute n offer us a better price than wat is available now since you mentioned that it is cheap for the benefit of the community here cos MARIX seems to b clearing their warehouse of stocks now
