Sorry i forgot about another question i had. once the sd card in the camera is full will it automaticly delete or write over the oldest video and continue to save the latest video? thanks again

Yes - but I HIGHLY recommend you upgrade to a 32 GB card - because everything (rain, snow, squirrels, cats, possums, leaves & trees moving, you name it) triggers the motion and they have made SOME slight improvements on motion control but in night vision mode, just a drizzle keeps it recording almost continuously. With the on line version, they do back up the motions to their server but it will over right once the card fills up - use the 2GB in your regular still camera and invest in the 32GB, trust me, it's worth it.

Thanks Bob thats really helpful to know but thats a bummer that they would have full profile admin capabilities when logged in online. ill have to do some more research maybe on that other software you recomended.

I tried Blue Iris' free trial, it works but each person accessing would need an account (so each would have to buy the software and open an account) OR share the account (and thus, same problem!) They have a free trail for a couple of weeks and if I recall, it's about $50 for the software, can't remember exactly their price. It does have more capability than Logitech's software and works fine - and Blue Iris, unlike Logitech, actually is working to make major enhancements - Logitech is like watching a turtle cross and 8 lane interstate highway - slow and kind of scary! Oh, they will get there, but at their own sluggish pace and under their own terms - I have serious concerns the engineers at Logitech think any of us are capable of knowing what we want and need in a security system - they have somehow deemed themselves smarter than their users. Change comes VERY (excruitatingly) slow with Logitech. It's kind of sad actually, that they can make a great camera and then muck it up with lousy software and minimalist features. It's like they dummed it down for consumers; in reality most of their users are sophisticated end users who wants features AND ease of installation (which is their strong suit!) if it helps, I'd buy 'em again BUT if things don't change soon, I may not say that in another year or so. They really need to step it up a few notches and get over their dummy approach to selling these to soccer moms and computer illiterates. That is not their market but apparently they think it is. Good luck.

one thing i really like about logitech is that you dont need to set up a ddns account threw your isp or someone else to view it online. do you know of any other cameras that may work this way as well or any other type of software that would support the 750e camera but allso have the cappability for multi viewer veiwing. im finding alot of cameras that will allow like up to 16 people to view the camera at once and each are able to have there own password but all of them require you to set up ddns threw your isp

Not really, just Blue Iris - but I'm sure there may be others - there is a thread on this on this forum -- just type in Blue Iris and several threads should pop up. Logitech is supposedly working on this in a future release but it could be 3-6 or more months before we see a significant update to the software - right now it's all bug fixes - no real enhancements or new capabilties.

So one more noob questions for the 750e camera. Can the 750E camera be mounted to the ceiling? Example would be hanging down from a roof? Also when was the last time Logitech updated the software for the 750E camera?
Thanks for everyone replying also.

Yes, you can hang-mount it.
Last update was 4/1/2011.

I have to generally agree with this analysis. I have two cameras and will probably get a third. So I'm satisfied enough to be a customer, but barely. The lack of Mac support is a disappointment. The lack of support for rtsp (official support that the customer service guys can help with) is a real annoyance. I've had trouble with the powerline networking with one of the cameras (probably due to old house electric wiring, but hard to know. But the Commander software is not well implemented. And why can't you schedule recording? Why can't I define "ignore" spots for motion detection (instead of making a patchwork of "look here" areas)?
