If you're looking for WiFi connectivity this one isn't for you because even though it says it has it in the description, it does not have it. I was planning to do PoE anyhow but was going to install via WiFi first so this just accelerated my plans to wire them up. The included s/w lets you assign the LAN IP address and change the port as well as do camera settings. The Camera Management System s/w doesn't allow recording to a HDD but rather requires a NAS. It is pretty rudimentary so I just got BlueIris which is very powerful and sets up to record to HDD quite easily. The Camera itself is fixed and comes in close in mode, I changed it to more wide angle which requires adjusting the focus. I recommend doing this before installing on the house so that you're not on the ladder with your laptop adjusting it. I also recommend the bracket, PID 14731 and put the included screws in the camera flange before getting on the ladder to make it much easier to mount the camera. Would I buy again? Yup. As a matter of fact, I'm going to get at least one more.
