Trendnet TV-IP121WN Night and Day Security Camera

 

Today we are taking a look at something that is a bit different from what we usually review. We got a sample of Trendnet's night and day security camera which as the name states also work at night. We are going to look at what type of quality we can...

Small ; Easy to use ; Good mount ; Good software

Price ; Takes time to get a IP

Update to previous review

 

These are great for day time security.

Stable security cam. Once configured on the network, they are reliable and provide good service. In my previous review, I was having trouble as previously stated, but after I reset the device and finally got it stable on the network, I no longer have...

Night vision is not that great, but if you're looking for night vision, it's going to cost far more than this.

You get what you pay for.. Really.

 

Do yourself a favor and get a different brand other than TRENDnet. This is EPIC FAIL for sure.

Works fine when it gets a signal. This is not a poor reflection on Newegg in any way. TRENDnet should update the firmware, better yet, they should do a factory recall and incinerate these cameras! These things are extremely irritating and simply a pain...

I am very reluctant to give an overall rating with only one egg, but this is absolutely ridiculous! I see why they sold these things as refurbished. They constantly lose connection to WiFi and even when wired with CAT5. I have to power cycle both of...

Awesome!

 

I purchased two of these TRENDnet IP cams since I already have one TRENDnet cam that does not have night vision LED lights. I'm very pleased with TRENDnet. I can see my entire front yard and back yard simultaneously and the picture is very clear...

Easy to configure, fast frame rate over wireless connection, very rugged hardware, connects to the network quickly after the router reboots, and is compatible with third party software. Well worth the investment

None so far... Take time to configure via wired Ethernet and set up the wireless connection

Good deal when at a low price

 

I got this for $25 which is a great price for an IP camera. I wouldn't have paid a penny more, because it isn't worth anymore than that. Very few people are going to have the tech knowledge and patience to deal with the setup. Altogether I'd estimate...

→Good wireless connectivity →No PC required after setup →View your webcam from anywhere via HTTP -- which works well →Email alerts via motion detection are available and function →Nice IR night vision that toggles automatically w an advertised 15 foot...

→Narrow field of view →ActiveX is required for certain parts of the setup (requires internet explorer, doesn't function with firefox or chrome! it's is broken; see below for elaboration) →Difficult to setup, requires major fiddling →Discontinued and...
