TRENDnet TV-IP551WI Day/Night Network Camera Reviewed

 

Budget minded, Wireless N functionality, Night vision may be better than the TV-IP572PI

Very short power cord, Motion detection was spotty, Transition out of day mode was problematic at times, Manual focus

VGA network camera with entry-level features for under $100

Lacks some features

 

Easy to set up, cheap in price

1. No white balance, in area where there are lots of sunshine, the image will be washed out to white ; 2. Be aware when you are changing the default user name and password (you should do so), the camera might lock you out after you changed your...

Great Case

 

Cheap solution to use for a baby or kids monitor. Haven't set it up for broadcast on the internet yet just bought it to test out and run on my home network.

Inexpensive wireless camera you can set up inside your house to monitor whichever room you choose

Manual focus but you can upgrade to a higher quality cam for more money. Have to know about router setup and ip addresses to make it work properly

TRENDnet TV-IP551W

 

Excellent picture

I purchased two 81-012-059 Trend/TV-1P551W R. After 30 minutes with tech support, I was able to see the two cameras on my smart phone as long as I was in my own house. I got off the telephone with Tech support why offered a 6 month and 12 month plan...

OK For The Price

 

Focus by turning the lens. The distance in video is 3 feet. The original feed was just a touch better/sharper. The sound is coming from a Bluetooth Vivitar VIV1803 Shower Speaker bought on Newegg.

The Shell Shocker price ($22) was too good to pass up. Its not 720p but pretty good for a 640x480 ip cam. Forgetting the great price I paid it still is pretty decent for what it is. The audio is pretty good too

Nothing worth mentioning

Decent Camera

 

Got two of these for 40 bucks from newegg. Not bad considering the price. They are wirless IP cameras. Easy to setup and decent video quality. Great framerate too

So-so

 

Reasonably good picture in good room lighting

No Auto White Balance function therefore is not very usable in many applications (unless you want to constantly be fiddling with the manual brightness & contrast controls). I have this camera facing into our family room and when the sun shines into the...

Not Great

 

I would buy a TRENDnet product again.

None for this camera, TRENDnet has good products but this isn't one of them

Over all just a bad camera, ordered two and sent the other one back unopened. Will not stay connected to wireless, bad picture when connected, very short power cable maybe a little over 24 ; For the price I paid on sale its not cost effective to pay...
