        I also picked up 2 and flashed one successfully using the instructions posted. Initial impressions - good picture quality and lots of configuration options. Not at all a bad deal for $25 bucks.

          Completely agree with MTerry. Just flashed both. Easy to do, and for $25, I dont know if you could find a better IP cam. Plan on stopping back and getting more.

              Whata Deal -

              I can confirm they work with the HomeSeer NetCam plugin. Also look at the option for DDNS - although there is nothing input into the fields, it is enabled with checkbox.

                      Updated FW on IPCams that I purchased. Easy. Here are the instructions. If you have never done anything like this or do not feel comfortable doing the firmware upgrade please don't attempt it; you can brick your camera.

                      Download the software used to flash the firmware at:

                      http://www.everbesthk.com/8-download...ade_207_XP.zip

                      Download the firmware to flash the IP camera at:

                      http://www.northq.com/download/9006/FW-NQ-9006.1009.zip

                      Install the software. Use compatibility mode if you are using W7. The application will not run in 64 Bit mode.

                      1 - Connect the included cable to the IPCam
                      2 - Install the camera on the same network switch as the upgrading machine.
                      3 - then insert a paperclip into the reset hole on the side of the unit.
                      4 - While holding down the reset button, plug in the power adapter.
                      5 - This will put the device into a firmware upgrade mode.
                      6 - The power light should flash while the network light should stay solid

                      Firmware upgrade
                      1 - You have the run the updater as THE administrator, not just as an administrator in MS Windows 7
                      2 - Open the Upgrade Utility app you installed earlier,
                      3 - select your current network adapter, the click browse targets.
                      4 - If the application finds the device,
                      5 - click on the Files button then
                      6 - navigate to where you saved the firmware file.
                      7 - Once you're ready, click on upgrade.
                      8 - It should wipe the EEPROM, write the new firmware, then
                      9 - verify that the image has been written successfully.

                      The process should take about 5 minutes or so. When it's finished, the device will reboot and once the power and network lights are solid, you should be good to go.



                      It will pull an IP from your DHCP server. The login is "Administrator" with no password (Blank).

                      This is the default screen of the IP Camera once you've updated the firmware.

                      Users of MS IE will need to download an activex component to use the camera.

                            From the Very last page of the northq Installation Guide.

                            Streaming Video/Audio through Internet Camera
                            To snapshot a JPEG image from the Internet Camera with specified resolution and quality:

                            http://IP Address/img/snapshot.cgi?[size=value][&quality=value]

                            Size = 1(160*128)
                            2(320*240)
                            3(640*480)
                            Quality = 1(Very low)
                            2(Low) 3(Normal)
                            4(High)
                            5(Very high)


                            To stream M-JPEG video from the Internet Camera (M-JPEG mode only)

                            http://IP Address/img/mjpeg.cgi or http://IP Address/img/main_mjpeg.htm

                            To stream video through the RTP/RTSP protocol from Internet Camera (MPEG-4 mode only)

                            rtsp://IP Address/img/media.sav

                            Note: Users need to specify the desired protocol in the players. To snapshot a JPEG image (160*128, very low quality) through a mobile phone:

                            http://IP Address/img/mobile.cgi
