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...

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

the camera his minimal picture adjustment options. i can either have black and white (0 saturation) or various shades of pink (1 to 99 saturation). even a black jacket looks brownish pink at 30 saturation... RMA here we come this thing is junk. I don't...

fast setup.. less than 5min

everything in the picture is a shade of pink

Perfect for Baby monitor


After looking at 20 or so wireless cameras I came across this one which is exactly what I was looking for. I wanted a baby monitor that I could use with my android phone so I can listen and check on our baby. Setup the camera just as the instructions...

none so far

Easy Peasy!


I've been looking for a good wireless webcam since I saw the price of standalone video baby monitors. ($150-$200) I went with Trendnet because I've purchased a few of their print servers and they work great. When I came across this one I liked the fact...

Easy to set up. All you need to do is follow instructions and have a little knowledge of how your router is set up ; Free iTunes and Android market apps. (Looks great on a Xoom!) ; Website viewer (more in other thoughts) ; One way audio. (really nice...

SecurView Pro on the PC is kind of garbage. I just stick to the web browser when viewing on the computer ; Unfortunately to get the full functionality of the website viewer you need to use IE

Useless in the dark


This might work better with an IR floodlight but for the money , assuming you don't need wireless, I'd buy the TP-Link SC3430 and an IR Flood.

Setup was quick (I used web setup) ; Wireless 11n worked flawlessly ; UI is responsive and seems stable ; iOS viewer app

IR LEDs only effective out to 60cm (work at 850nm) ; VGA resolution is limiting ; Internet Explorer / ActiveX required for setup of alarm events ; Runs warm ; Power cable is only about 5ft / 160cm ; Not PoE

Consumer review by: N/A (



I purchased this camera for our second home despite mediocre reviews here and on other sites. Other reviews reported instability, especially when connected over wireless. Some even stated it would not work with WPA2, despite the spec saying otherwise....

Android app works well (search for SecureView in the market) ; Night vision works pretty well ; Config was simple (see cons about ActiveX plugin) ; Java applet for viewing on any cross-platform browser ; Video settings like IR sensitivity, frame rate,...

Three features require an ActiveX plugin, meaning one must use Internet Explorer for those three features. They are: administratively configuring the screen areas to monitor for motion detection, zooming in and out while watching the picture, and...
