HORRIBLE CAMERA!Jan 02, 2012
I recently ordered this camera hoping I could fly my helicopter controlling it at close range. Well I sure was wrong! this camera gets fuzzy and you can hardly tell whats going on when it is 10ft away behind my helicopter box. I am very disappointed and hope to warn potential buyers that the range is terrible and can barely broadcast through a window let alone in the room right beside it. Unless you have one big room where the camera and receiver will both be placed, its not worth it. I just am saying It does not have a range near 200 ft like some are saying.. maybe you could tell whats going on at 50 ft no obstructions sitting still, but otherwis I do not recommend this to anyone and I am planning on returning the camera.

research before buyingApr 09, 2012
i have bought several of these types of camera's form other sellers that work way better. spend the extra couple buck for something reliable. now saying that, with the cost you can't be picky if you are willing to gamble.
SECURITY - DON'T BOTHER ( the tuning is way to sensitive, whereas it it really hard to get a constant clear picture.
I would not use it for home security of any type as i live in a townhouse, and when set up it literaly make a cracking sound on the monitor when the unit transmits through one wall. )
the range is not 200 feet..... maybe 10 feet line of sight. the advertising is false and i think this is why it was a dissapointing buy. i spent $50 bucks on the same type of unit several years ago and it works through the entire house and outside with no problems. this one has trouble transmitting clearly in the same room if large.
Sorry to the seller for the bad review, but people need to know the truth about the item.

Nice ItemJan 31, 2012
Read the reviews before you buy. If you get out of range at all, it gets very scratchy and loses freq easy! Don't know if I would call it a toy but that is how the review is describing this product.
Otherwise it works good. I use it in a blind spot on my home to see when people pull up so no surprise at the door.
If you can keep the camera and monitor close together it works great. Picture quality is that of a 1980's cam corder. Not at all like the crisp clean picture you get from bigger cameras of today.
The instructions say dont get the two power supply's mixed up or you will burn up the equipment, but that is confusing because neither one is marked for which unit it goes to. Like Power supply #1 goes to the camera and #2 goes with the main unit. Also it will eat 9v batts like crazy. 3 hrs is the most I can get out of a 9v batt.
Otherwise for a cheap easy small hidden camera, works great. Easy setup.

does not work wellFeb 25, 2012
By Amazon Customer
1) both units require power. the camera does have a 9v adpt but not the receiver. 2) there is always a line of interferance on the monitor cause by noise. Not a good picture.
3) Picture quality is not clear, grainy and dis-colored
4) 1st range test was only about 50' from base which was located in my bedroom and the camera stopped transmitting in my drive way. I will test it outside later
5) ther is no on board memory storage, so you'll have to set up a computer or something.

Works as expectedJan 22, 2010
By J. Nash
The camera works fine and was easy to setup and use. I'm not good with distances but I'm guessing the range was about 200 ft
