I have the non-poe version of this camera and it's great. Has had some issues in the past but after several firmware updates it is working wonderfully. The poe version of this camera seems to be the hated stepchild of the Amcrest camera line. Best I can tell it has never had a firmware update despite needing one desperately. I purchased 4 of these and received the cameras and was able to set them up easily and join them to my Blue Iris system, just as the non-poe version. They seemed to be working great, but when I turned off the lights on the one in my son's room (bought it as a baby monitor) it went into night mode, as it should, but instead of staying there it went back to day mode and then back and forth over and over again (as several other reviewers have mentioned). I have attached a video of the camera cycling several times, but it just constantly does it over and over again. I used one of my non-poe cameras in the same...
I received what I believe to be a defective camera. It happens when you crank out anything by the millions. The camera did seem to function for about three hours or so before some issues started. Ultimately though, after trying two different PoE switches, using the supplied power adapter, and several different CAT6 cables, this camera simply wouldn't remain operational for more than 10 minutes without spontaneously rebooting. And when it did reboot, it seemed to get stuck and vibrate quite a bit - like there were misaligned gears or something.
The image quality was excellent, with plenty of configurable options to tweak and adjust it as you see fit. Likewise, there were plenty of network settings available that never were available on Foscam models. But.. there were some that were conspicuous by their absence as well. It's disappointing that after so many years, I am presented with the option of using either Internet Explorer or Safari. It's as though they did a poll...

I have two of these cameras, and both will get stuck in a loop of switching between day and night mode. I would not recommend these until Amcrest can fix this issue in the firmware.
The issues seems to happen in when the lights are dimmed. It appears the camera gets confused if it should be in day or night mode.
Update 2/28/2017: I was told by Amcrest support that this is a known issue and they are working on it. The only solution was to factory reset the cameras. Amcrest Support: R and D is working on that Amcrest Support: What you can do is just reset the camera to factory default and set it up back
I factory reset 1 camera and so far the issue has been fixed. I power cycled 1 camera and the issue has been fixed.
Update 3/7/2017: The camera that was power cycled is now experiencing that day night mode issue. I factory reset this camera and will wait and see if the issue...
