Wouldnt connect after a day

 

I hoped installing the updated firmware would help, but it made no difference, The longest it lasted was about 24 hours.

Seems solid and well constructed. Image quality was good. Install was easier than I expected

It wouldn't stay connected longer than a day. Every time I got it working again (after re-installing) it would work for a few hours then it wouldn't connect to the "cloud" anymore. Kind of pointless if you can't see the image. I tried installing using...

Had called Trendnet support before purchasing to verify only thing needed was an Internet connection and no port forwarding or ddns were needed to control the camera and stream video, was told only thing needed was an Internet connection. The ‘cloud'...

Easy setup, great image, quick ship, easy to use remote/phone app

Disappointed

 

Newegg wants me to pay $11 to ship defective unit back

Looks mechanically robust, if only it worked

Wouldn't install or connect to WiFi. Product support was no help. Invested 5 hours banging head against the wall!. Installation software asked to download new firmware but the link never connected to Trendiest. Router indicates unit was permanently...

Nice camera for the price

 

For the price I like and would recommend the camera. I like the flexibility to be able to move them to other locations with ease. The email alert function is very useful but you do have to learn what causes a false trigger such as light changes and day...

Price, flexibility, wireless internet connection, pan and scan, email alerts, good night vision, ease of setup, configurable to shut off led's

email alert triggered when camera switches from day to night mode and back again, low definition camera (this was expected so really should not be a con), Needs a solid wifi connection for reliable operation ( I suspect they eat some bandwidth), the...

TRENDnet TV-IP851WIC

 

paying for returning this product is not fun.

The color is white and easy to match with a room

I spent 2 hours configuring and 1.5 hours on the phone with support. In the end I was told, "sometimes it will work and sometimes it will not work." The GUI is missing a lot of information. The firmware upgrade took six tries, before it would start....

Nice Nanny Cam

 

I would have liked to see this camera work with a battery pack instead of just an ac adapter, its not truly wireless. Overall its a very nice web enabled camera, there are still a bit of bugs to work out though to make it truly a great piece of hardware.

The camera has a nice weight to it and feels very well built ; Setup for the camera was very easy. A guided setup with pictures takes you through all the steps no matter which connection type you choose ; Night vision works very good, in complete...

Power and WLAN activity LED's are too bright., but they can be turned off ; Camera is a bit on the large side and tilt and panning the camera make alot of noise ; SecurView Pro software is over complicated, I could not get a video feed from the camera...
