Great Little IP camera
 
For an outdoor IP camera, this camera rates high with me and even more so after comparing it with the Toshiba IK-WB15A IP camera. I set it up as a weather cam, but found it did really great as a security cam. With a 2GB SD memory card in it, I have seen over 10,000 images on it. I record every passing vehicle, triggered by motion, and every 60 seconds for the weather. Looking forward to getting the MegaPixel version soon.Down side of this camera, no optical zoom options in this body ...

Exceptional Value
 
As others have indicated, this camera is truly an exceptional value for the money. Everything about it is of high quality from start to finsh... even the packaging it comes in is first rate. I love Panasonic products.When doing my research on which brand and model of networked security camera to buy, I was a little concerned about not having an IR capable camera (such as this model). But after reading the excellent low-lux specifications and good reviews, I took the plunge and bou...

Does NOT INCLUDE any way to power Cam
 
This cam must be powered by a POE hub or a separate additional a/c adapter neither of which are included with the camera. Would have been nice to know this BEFORE purchase. For a $600 item you would think that Panasonic would include a way to TURN IT ON, but NO. The ac adapter is item BB-HCA3A (about $40)and IS NOT RATED FOR OUTSIDE USE (which is the whole idea for using a outside camera). I have not been able to find where the POE hub mentioned in the installation instructions might be availabl...

Security and logging
 
Overall I am very pleased with this camera. I have 3 installed in our vacation home which is over a thousand miles away. I use these combined with software to keep track of visitors and to just enjoy the view from our vacation hideaway. Contrary to other reviews, documentation is available online and on a CD which ships with the camera. Setup is easy if all you want to do is view images remotely. Remote data logging is more complex so expect that to be challenging. Cameras have been in operation...

Large Features Small Price
 
I've had this camera for about a week now and am very happy with it. I'm writing this because the other reviews seem to be very negative due to documentation issues. The documentation is sparse, but the camera and software are very intuitive. The picture quality is great. The motion detection works very well. I've paired this with a Synology DS209+ NAS, which I use to capture motion rather than the FLASH card option.

Panasonic BB-HCM531A
 
First off like to thanks Panasonic customer service for helping me make my decision on the Camera Model: BB-HCM531A. I end up geting 2 of them and had them up now for three weeks.

The Software i got for the cameras Model:BB-HNP15A is nice and easy to record with. the Cameras are easy to set up but if you need help Panasonic Tech sup...

Very good for the price
 
I was looking for an outdoor camera for my home and decided on the BB-HCM531A after taking to the Panasonic tech people. I was tempted to go with the less expensive BB-HCN511A because it has very similar performance specification and I was mounting the camera under an eve and I felt like I could provide it adequate protection from the rain. However, despite assumptions posted several places that suggest the 511A is the same as the 531A without the protective shell, I discover 2 key points that...
