6 Reasons For

Good Brand

On average Foscam low megapixel count webcams have good reviews as do all webcams produced by Foscam.

Has a Motion Detector

The FI9821EP has a motion detector. Most of the other webcams of a similar type and age to the FI9821EP do not have a motion detector.

Chart Edit

Very High Maximum Frame Rate

At 60 frames per second, the FI9821EP has a very high maximum frame rate compared to most of the other low megapixel count webcams that have been around for around the same time as the FI9821EP. Across all the webcams of this age and type the maximum frame rates range from 15fps to 60fps, and the average maximum frame rate is 31fps.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Microphone

The FI9821EP has a built-in microphone, as do most of the other webcams of this type and age.

We compared this webcam to all the other webcams with a built-in microphone and we think the Digicom IPC331-T01 is also worth considering.

10 Reasons Against

Difficult to Use

One person who reviewed it thought it was not easy to setup. Brendan Comerford wrote on Amazon “The product itself is promising although not as easy to set-up port forwarding as claimed” and rated it 60 out of 100.

Poor Connectivity

One Foscam FI9821EP reviewer who reviewed it reckoned that it was not wifi compatible. Last year Brendan Comerford scored it 60 out of 100 and he said on Amazon “When delivered I found that it has no WiFi capability” in his review of the Foscam FI9821EP.

Does Not Feature Face Tracking

Most webcams that have been available for a comparable time to the FI9821EP do not feature face tracking. The FI9821EP is no exception to this as it too does not feature face tracking.

Chart Edit

Not USB Powered

The FI9821EP is not USB powered, although this is within the context that most of the other webcams of this age and type are also not USB powered.

Chart Edit

Not Mac Compatible

Most webcams that came out around the same time as the FI9821EP are not Mac compatible. The FI9821EP is no exception to this as it too is not Mac compatible.

Chart Edit

Only RJ-45 Interface

The FI9821EP has a better interface than most webcams of a similar age and type to it. This webcam has an RJ-45 interface, whereas most webcams that were released one year ago have a Wi-Fi interface.

An RJ-45 interface is actually the worst interface amongst all webcams of this age and type.

A USB 2 interface is the best interface across similar types of webcam.
