The FI9806W is a less expensive (lower resolution) version of the Foscam FI9805W.  Similar to it’s big brother, it’s a waterproof outdoor IP camera with all the functions of generic ip cameras, with some extras.

The FI9806W has 0.3 megapixel (640X480) imaging, infrared vision for night vision, as well as weather resistant metal housing. It’s perfect for outdoors day and night, rain or shine. Cammy also supports this camera with auto set up so you’ll be monitoring in minutes.

Unlike an indoor camera, it’s heavier and bulkier and mounting it requires you screw it into a wall outside. You’ll also need easy access to a powerpoint from your outside location. Once setup it will not only capture footage but can deter burglars due to it’s size and appearance.

Overall, a very good camera with lots of great features, but lower resolution than some other outdoor cameras. Depending on what type of dwelling you have, it might just do the job.
