    2.5 lux means it doesn't have a very sensitive CMOS image sensor,
    so you'd probably need an infra-red source in the baby's room.

    Thanks, I will take that into consideration.

    But be warned - shipped from the US means you will probably get to pay
    import duty and VAT in addition to the quoted price!

    Yup, ordered one today and I am expecting to be paying VAT on top.

    Seems very little info out there on this camera, a bit of a gamble but
    hopefully it will do the job.

    For posterity, or those thinking of buying this camera, it arrived
    yesterday and is now sitting happily on my WLAN.

    Seems to work very well, low light performance is OK (IR is fine),
    picture quality is average like any webcam really - good enough. The
    frame rates are relatively low although this improves when you reduce
    the resolution, possibly a bandwidth limit on my 802.11b network?

    The user interface is web-based and a little clunky but works OK.

    I haven't tested all the options yet (sound?) and I am unlikely to use
    the internet broadcast option.

    So for the price (I paid £100 including P&P from the US) it seems like a
    good deal if you want a wireless network or security camera with
    night-vision.

    Access to the picture is via a web interface in any browser which is fun
    as we can access it from any PC on the network with no additional s/w.

    Cheers

    Tell me, what are the mounting options? Can it be screwed to a wall for
    example? Is it marked "indoor use only" etc?

    It comes with what looks like a standard camera screw mounting, a small
    mounting pole with adjustable swivel bracket and a wall fitting with
    rawl plugs etc.

    So, yes, it can be mounted on a wall but it is definitely not weather
    proof or suitable for outside as far as I can see.
