The image quality looked good and I appeared to be getting a decent frame rate although there was nothing to tell me what my rate was. But one thing I noticed right off the bat was some "fisheye" distortion in the video. Figure 5 shows a capture from a camera pointing out my front window. This was a bit annoying, but once I zoomed in a bit using the controls on the bottom of the window, the distortion was no longer noticeable.

In the live video mode, the system can be configured to view a single camera, view all cameras simultaneously at a low resolution, or it can rotate through all of your cameras. Figure 6 shows the display of both of my cameras, one looking out the front window, and one out the back.

The title on the videos is a configurable item, and the time-stamp can be displayed or not. I found that at least once, the timestamp shown in the video was a couple of hours off from what the base station was configured to.

One thing that would have been nice was the ability to change the color of the overlays. Figure 7 shows an image out my front window after a snow-storm. There's a time-overlay present, but you can't see it because of the snow.
