ProView Wireless Internet Camera

 

It's overall a decent IP camera that delivers respectable video output.

It excels in internet connectivity, with robust remote management and encryption

The camera itself is quite bulky and lacks features that enhance flexibility

The TRENDnet TV-IP501W ProView Internet Camera lacks a handful of flexible features we would like to see, including full night vision mode, two-way audio and pan and tilt capabilities. Additionally, the camera is large and bulky in comparison to other...

Could have been a good deal

 

The video is not that great at night anyway. I think for the money you can find a better camera.

Easy setup, and came with all the items to install. Camera works

Would have been a great camera for the garage area if you could see through the lens. After installing the camera and viewing the video found that the lens was no good. If was heavily pitted and scratched on the glass which in turn makes worthless...

ATI Radeon 7500 64mb PCI card

 

Updated the firmware to 1.0.4. Will need to get another RMA.

The LAN line works ; WPS button WIFI setup is working ; I can see the camera in my Netgear WNDR3700 WIFI router as attached wireless device

But still couldn't get the camera to work in WIFI even with this replacement (the first camera has the same problem)

WIFI connection not working

Very disappointed

 

I've wasted too much time trying to upgrade the firmware so that I can use the camera outdoors. I have tried to contact customer service at Trendnet and gotten no response. When I try to upload the firmware, it tells me the image file is damaged....

Non so far

Can't upgrade firmware. Won't work outdoors without upgraded firmware. Right now I have a paperweight in the shape of a camera

Not Linux Compatible!

 

Nice feature set, but only for Microsoft users with Active-X

Not Linux-compatible

Consumer review by:

Works fine

 

I will buy a few more of these cameras at some point.

Easy setup (Win 7 x64 for me) out of the box, either wired or wireless n. Good resolution, even in lower light. Also supports RTSP (TCP video streaming) via port 554. The Trendnet smartphone free apps are simple, but do the job. Does have motion...

Manual focus. No optical zoom. No pan and tilt. The software will do 16x digital zoom though, but so can most software media players. The camera has a microphone, but no external speaker (It has an audio "line out" port). The provided PC software is...

Consumer review by:

Good Camera

 

Good Camera, good price, NEWEGG! Easy to install, just make sure you upgrade the firmware first - thanks to the previous reviewer who pointed out that was important. It won't work with IE9 without the upgrade. In no time flat, these were installed and...

None so far, although I just installed them and haven't even installed the IPviewPro software to record stills. I'll update if I have issues

Consumer review by:

average, but acceptable for common use

 

Ok camera, but overpriced for the performance in my opinion; no updates to ROM even though they are well aware one is in need and image quality has been suffering for a long time.

Relatively easy to setup; various mount options, CS Lens (can be replaced), wireless or wired. network drive/share support, can be used with PTZ mounts

still draft N wireless; no updates for over a year; picture quality is only average in good light, completely washed out in very bright light, and very poor low light performance

Consumer review by:

Many features

 

Good value given all the features. The scheduling capability is unlimited and a varying schedule will require some thought to get it set up the way you want. Would have given it 5 stars if not for the firmware.

Many different configurable options. Good picture quality

Software isn't the most intuitive and takes awhile to learn all the quirks. There is a problem with the early firmware that renders outdoor viewing nearly unusable. It wasn't until I read these reviews and found out that upgrading firmware resolves...
