Image Quality is good at 15 frames per second so the motion will not be smooth
There are no controls other than the initial wi-fi setup.

Internet controls and settings are done through an on-line CMS

During our week long test, we were never able to get the Dropcam HD to create accurate color.
Black and Green appeared Pink and Magenta. Don't expect accurate color. DropCam's response was candid and I applaud them for that.

"the color inaccuracy that you are noticing with your Dropcam HD's video is actually a side effect of the IR filter over your camera's lens. This filter is required in order for the night vision feature to function.

Unfortunately, this means that in certain lighting conditions with a lot of UV present, the colors will seem a little bit off. This is especially prevalent in sunny outdoor scenes."
