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

Nice camera

 

When I first looked at this camera's image, it was almost fogged out. I adjusted the focus ring and it's good now. I've been able to record stills and video with this and the ptz Trendnet camera with linux motion. Nice pictures with time and date...

Very nice picture for it's class. Got it on sale for $30.

none it does what it's supposed to do. Had to revert to firmware 1.05.04 to continue to use camera with Linux motion. But it works well. I discovered this after a firmware upgrade. Now working for a couple years since my original review.

Good device.

 

Work perfectly, stability 24/7.

The software need a update and the video quality can be better.

Works great

 

I use these for monitoring my aquatic tanks when I am away from home. For the most part, I have had no issues from these cameras. They have only had to be power cycled once in the past year. The resolution is as expected for 640x480. I do like the...

Horrible

 

Cheap

I own 2. The reset button is non-functional. Placing a paper clip in the hole touches air and goes strait-thru to the other side. If you take the back off, you may be able to press the reset button, but it is a small piece of metal that wares easily....

Multiple Faulty TRENDnet TV-IP551W

 

Save your money and by something else (and from a different company). There are so many better cameras out there at this price point. This was a total waste of money and time.

Cheap, Just O.K. low light, flexible mount

Poor picture quality, Washed out, Very narrow field of view for a 4mm lens in both the horizontal and vertical directions. Very disappointed with that as the angle of view is basically useless to me unless the camera is mounted a great distance away....

Good picture.

The reset button is not very reliable - may be a defective piece, but could reset the unit once.

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...
