Foscam fi8919w
« on: February 25, 2015, 06:44:08 pm »
Has anyone seen an issue with the video where it flashes? Not sure why mine is doing it, but it seems like it only does it when it gets very bright out.
Most current firmware is installed. Camera is connected to the network via cat5, not wireless.
This happened in BI3 as well as in BI4. It isn't the software, as I can view the camera directly through its web page, and it is doing it there as well.

That's a common problem with some of the Foscam's. I had two FI8905's with the latest firmware that did the same thing. I ended up giving one to a friend and I junked the other one. I've seen it happen with my FI8910's once in while also. It happens when the sun is out or sometimes from the bright snow. I don't know of any cure for it. I no longer purchase Foscam's.

Ok, thanks for the info!! I only have the one foscam. Bought it to try it out. Other than that it works "ok". Nowhere as nice as the mobotix and axis cameras I have. (obviously)

Thanks!!

I'm still using two Foscam FI8910W's and they work fairly well. I've replaced all my other Foscam's with Hik's and ESC's. Great cameras.  :)
