We bought two 9805s, and were assured by Foscam that they'd be fine for outdoor use in Canada's climate. We also ordered power cords and they sent the wrong ones, but insisted that I pay the return postage.
That was a sign of bad things to come. The cameras didn't last two seasons and are now dead. The app is buggy and freezes. Any upgrades require the cameras to be unmounted (hugely inconvenient) and brought indoors to LAN update.
The software was not user friendly and as so many others have mentioned, it's not compatible with pretty much every operating system. Not recommended.
