Most IP cameras have limited angle of view, generally around 120-degrees. For those who needed a wide coverage, they usually get cameras that can pan and tilt, though they can look bulky and intimidating. Here on review is the D-Link DCS-8100LH home camera that offers 180-degree view. What it means is that the camera can capture everything from wall to wall, without any blind spots.
The design is quite unique, with the stand integrated into the unit. I can tilt the camera to about 100-degrees, and the stand is also heavy enough to counter the weight of the camera unit, hence it does not easily topple over. The stand can be rotated around the camera circumference, so you can mount the base on the walls and tilt the camera to level up.
The micro-USB connector to the AC power is angled and the cable runs underneath the stand with a gap. Excellent little design attention.
