The camera was a breeze to install. Using POE and a 16 port NVR, the hardest part of the install was making sure I located the camera in the right place to take advantage of the camera's resolution capabilities. Although a great camera and easy to install, at first I wasn't sure of the real advantage of this camera. Then I realized that I could select a portion of the image, zoom in, and the image was just as detailed as the bigger picture. This increased the value of the camera exponentially. This camera misses nothing. I highly recommend it, plan to buy a couple more.
