Trendnet TV-IP121WN Night and Day Security Camera

Small ; Easy to use ; Good mount ; Good software

Price ; Takes time to get a IP

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

Not Bad for the Price

Consumer review (



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...

Great camera, strong IR LEDs


Most of the issues I have with this camera could probably be addressed with a firmware update (assuming the hardware is capable of managing two separate network configurations for the different connections). The IR LEDs are also intensely bright,...

Good image quality for 640x480 (resolution isn't everything!), both day and night. When the camera is focused properly, images are very crisp and the subject is clear enough for my user (who is legally blind) to perceive and understand ; Seems to get...

IP address configuration is screwy -- no separate configuration for wired/wireless; if you set the IP for the wired network, it tries to use the same IP on wireless ; Wireless security doesn't seem very cooperative and doesn't support WPA2, only WPA....

Deffinitly worth it. Does its job quite well for the price.

Image quality is great. You can make out faces and people if needed. Some cameras are so bad that they are worthless, but using this is a surveillance camera is what it is really for. It does a good job at that. The web interface works great and the...

Maybe more powerfull IR LEDs but you can always remedy that with an IR flood light

WOW - Best camera on the market


I took a chance with this company and I do not regret it. I look forward to purchasing more TRENDNET products on a regular basis. Thanks for keeping products affordable TRENDnet.

This camera has all the features for an excellent price. I dare you to try and find an IP Camera that can compete with this one at this price point

No PTZ, but it has night vision. Make sure you update to the latest firmware
