Stay away

  • Pros: It's nice when it works. You can set up different users and only allow some of them to pan & tilt the camera.
  • Cons: This camera lasted a little over a year. It loses its connection to the network. You have to reset it and add all your users again, etc. Got to the point it wouldn't stay connected for five minutes.

Good Camera Good price

Pat M., Newegg
23 November 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this camera specifically to monitor around my house, detect motion, record video of possible lurkers and sound an audible alarm to wake me if motion is detected. It does all that exactly as I needed. For the price this camera works fantastic.
  • Pros: Good picture, easy to use interface, easy setup. Motion detection works well and bundled with the free software, can email stills, record video, and sound audible alerts. Multiple picture settings and adjustments. Ability to flip picture for multiple mounting options.
  • Cons: A bit slow pan/tilt. Even with a higher end router with good wifi speeds, or direct link to network. Still very usable. 4x Zoom is useless. Picture is too pixelated while zoom is used. Software is great for free, but there are other software options out there with more functions, but at a high cost.

Can't say I'm impressed

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Needed a number of units-hoped this was the deal but more than likely return and keep shopping
  • Pros: It Is a PTZ webcam! lol. Ok. Its picture clarity is not bad. Price good. Complete kit.
  • Cons: Less of a field of view than I hoped for. Really really slow controls even over a wired 1000Bt full duplex LAN!?! Controls tedious-wish it was setup like a joystick for a fast tilt and pan and zoom. If I was using a cam like this for any mildly serious security-they could rebuild the engine of th...

Very Good

Joseph H., Newegg
10 January 2011
  • Summary: I read in another review that there is an updated version of the software than what is on the CD or even what you can download on the product page. The latest one on the product page version 1.0.1.1329, but if you download the IPView Pro2 software on the TV-IP612WNs page then it works great.
  • Pros: I previously reviewed this, but had something to add in other thoughts. Also, I have 4 of these, and I really like them. They work great, and I can even view them on my DROID with an extra app i bought
  • Cons: None that I can think of

Great camera for the price

Joseph H., Newegg

  • Summary: I am very happy with this camera. I had a TRENDnet fixed camera, but wanted to get several more with Pan/Tilt. I chose this one because of the low cost as compared to all the other PTZ cameras I saw, and I am quite pleased with it. The pan/tilt is a bit slow but it is fine for my needs.
  • Pros: Pan/Tilt works great. Good resolution. Software has many features.
  • Cons: The pan/tilt is a bit slow but it is fine for my needs.

Good bang for the buck..

  • Summary: I'll probably keep this, but I'm hoping TrendNet updates the firmware with more security features and on/off capabilities for administrators.
  • Pros: Does exactly what we expect it to do. Good pricing for a PTZ camera. I actually thought the PTZ function was pretty quick if you turn the setting up to 10 degrees. Pretty good resolution as well.
  • Cons: Camera security is somewhat lacking. Users either do or do not have the ability to pan/tilt. There is no in between. It would be nice if different levels of security was added so that some users can only use presets and others can pan freely, etc. PTZ function is a bit noisy as you can hear a cli...

Mixed feelings . . .

Eric O., Newegg
18 June 2010
  • Summary: I would in my personal opion spend more money and get a better camera, with faster ptz, audio etc.
  • Pros: 1. Has a great resolution 2. Software is pretty nice (Proview)
  • Cons: 1. Horrible mounting bracket, you have to mount the camera to the bracket them try to not drop the camera and bracket while your mounting it, camera starts to be in the way. Really unhappy with the bracket. 2. Speed to PTZ is HORRIBLY SLOW. Not really a ptz if you cant move it around in a timely ...

Ok, but be careful...

  • Summary: I purchased this camera based on assurances from TrendNet that it was fully Mac compatible. THAT IS NOT THE CASE. #1, TrendNet does not provide any written instructions for using this camera with a Mac. #2. If you figure it out on your own, then there are new problems..

Excellent Value-

  • Summary: This camera is worth every cent I spent. I had some trouble doing Port forwarding and TRENDNET helped me through the steps. Before I knew I had my handy little camera online ready for action. I've had it got over 3 months now and seems to be pretty reliable.
