    By now, you’re probably aware of how an IP camera works. You set it up just like you would with CCTV analog cameras but with the added instruction of connecting the IP camera to an NVR and to the internet via an Ethernet cable.

    Now, for best results, you would need to acquire a static IP address so that you can access the IP camera by using an internet browser of choice.

    The problem is, a domain static IP address can be costly and you will have to incur monthly fees for that.

    Wouldn’t it be great if there is an IP camera with an included static IP address that you can use for it?

    There actually are IP cameras that have that as a free add-on and I am going to talk about one today.

    The Foscam FI9802W IP Camera is a pretty good IP camera in the sense that you get a free static IP address for use with it.

    Right out of the box, the Foscam FI9802W IP Camera works as intended. You just need to install it outside in order for you to maximize the equipment.

    Before anything else, I want to talk about the actual IP camera. The Foscam FI9802W IP Camera is a bullet-type IP camera that has a maximum supported resolution of 720P (1280×720). This IP camera comes in either black or white and you choose one based on your preference.

    Aside from the 720p maximum resolution, the Foscam FI9802W IP Camera also has a single SOC chip with a built-in ARM+DSP processor. For those of you who do not know, the included SOC chip is quite fast and that the processor works twice as much to deliver a high-speed IP camera.

    Since this IP camera only has a maximum resolution of 720p, it won’t take much of your storage space. Furthermore, this IP camera comes with a standard H.264 compression algorithm to further cut down on the final video file size.

    Although the Foscam FI9802W IP Camera only has a 1-megapixel camera, it still provides decent quality in most cases.

    It also comes with 36 Infrared LEDs and an IR filter to help the IP camera, especially in low-light situations and in dark areas.

    Since this is a bullet-type IP camera, it can only see from one angle and cannot be controlled to look in another direction.

    Still, the lens of this IP camera has a 54-degree angle view which, in most cases, is pretty adequate.

    It also comes with its companion software in that it allows you to tweak certain settings like how the IP camera will notify you in case of any motion being detected, what resolution do you want the IP camera to use, and so much more.

    The Foscam FI9802W IP Camera also has its very own IP address so that you do not need to subscribe to a static IP address which should be pretty good for a lot of people.

    The Foscam FI9802W IP Camera is an affordable IP camera with free IP address, 1-megapixel camera, 720p resolution support, and great night-vision.

  • Uncategorized 06.11.2016 Comments Off on Mortal Kombat XL Will Be Coming to the PC After All

    Back in the day when NetherRealm Studios released the Mortal Kombat XL, the game developers were “sure” that the Mortal Kombat X’s expansion pack will only be made available on the console versions of the game.

    That is probably due to the fact that the PC port of the game has a lot of in-game issues that hasn’t been ironed out.

    But just recently, NetherRealm studios hinted and ultimately confirmed that the Mortal Kombat XL will be coming to the PC after all.

    To ensure that the game will have a steady PC launch, the gaming company has opened the “Mortal Kombat XL Enhanced Online Beta” program.

    Basically, this is their fancy name for the online open beta program of the game. This is so that any issues that may arise will be fixed prior to the release of the game.

    For those people who are interested in playing the beta version of the game, just fire up your Steam client and search for the Mortal Kombat XL. You will then be redirected to the game’s beta program and you just to have to enroll yourself. After that, you can now download the beta patch of the game.

    Mortal Kombat XL’s game developers are wise to create a beta program for the game. The cancellation of Mortal Kombat XL’s release in the PC was never fully disclosed but a lot of players think that this was entirely because of the myriad of issues that’s plaguing the PC port of the game.

    I also think that the game developers are now focusing on releasing Mortal Kombat XL to the PC because of the push from the community.

    You see, a lot of Mortal Kombat X players really want to play the game on the PC since, well, the PC is way better in terms of hardware specs.

    Unfortunately, not all PC ports of the game are great and as of this time of writing, only the console versions of the game are playable.

    Now, because Mortal Kombat XL will be on the beta program for quite some time, there is still no official release window for the game.

    According to the gaming company, they want to iron out every major issue that comes up so that the Mortal Kombat XL PC port’s release will be seamless.

    Warner Bros, the ones who are responsible for publishing the game, also acknowledges the game developers’ decision about the beta program.

    They know all too well that the original PC port of the game suffered from a lot of issues and it is only fitting that they take their time to really fix and improve the game even further.

    This is great news, especially for the people who have been clamoring for a PC release all this time.

    Mortal Kombat XL will release some amazing characters to the mix such as the Alien from the Alien series, Leatherface from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise, and much more.

    As of this time of writing, there is still no release date for the PC port of the game but if you want to try it out, fire up your Steam client and search for Mortal Kombat XL and download the Beta patch.

    Mortal Kombat XL is available on Playstation 4 and Xbox One and will soon be available on the PC as well.
