With the current state of economy in many countries being worse than just bad it's only natural for people (and companies) to do their best in order to ensure the safety of both their loved ones and their property in general. One of the easiest ways to do that is to install both a state of the art alarm system and one or more IP cameras. As many of you know there are quite a few people in charge of security in several companies around the world who ask for my opinion quite often when it comes to choosing surveillance IP cameras since during the past 6 years i have both used and reviewed quite a few of them by most of the leading manufacturers in the field. ZAVIO is such a company and although they are not very known in the market their products such as the F3106 IP Camera we have here today have a very nice price/performance ratio.

Although at first i did not really know what to expect from ZAVIO since they have been around for just over 5 years in the end after quite a few days of testing the F3106 IP Camera proved to be quite good for its price range since it produced very good image quality, has a plethora of settings, comes with an SD/SDHC card slot and also features a built-in wireless 802.11b/g/n WPS compatible antenna. On the downside the F3106 IP Camera does not feature autofocus and night vision mode which no matter how you see it are two very important features for any IP camera, especially for outdoor models. Of course many people/companies do not require night vision mode since they may use the unit in rooms with plenty of light while the lack of autofocus is not hard to setup in closed areas. As for the rest let's move forward and see what the F3106 IP camera by ZAVIO is all about.
