Don't Leave Them Unplugged From Power for a Long Time!

Scott A Lentz, Amazon
24 February 2014
  • Summary: I purchased 5 of the TV-IP312W and 2 of the TV-IP312 from Amazon from 2007 to 2009. They were all working fine (after much configuration and updating) in our old house. We built and moved into a new house in 2012. Anyway, I disconnected them all and left them in a box for a little over a year. When I went to install them in the new house over the past week only one would work. The rest all just keep blinking the yellow LED.

Mediocre camera - NOT for Macs, works well with Synology

MyZonDotCom, Amazon
26 May 2012
  • Summary: Fair but not great image. Weak night vision, maybe 10 feet out in a circle about 70% of the image height. No support for Macs. You have to wire it to your router, look in the router DHCP to see what IP address it got (you can reserve an IP for future use) and then use that IP in a web browser to access the setup. That's where you configure it for your wireless network while still wired. No motion detection by the camera--that's done by the Windows software.

OK but may be overpriced unless you need Night vision

Tom Servo, Amazon
18 February 2012
  • Summary: The Trendnet TV-312WN is a 802.11n (150Mbps) WiFi enabled cam with a 10/100Mbit Ethernet port. This camera is a Day/Night cam, meaning that it can work in dark/no light environments due to the 6 Infrared LEDs around the lens. Note however that the effective range of these LEDs is not very far. THE GOOD: + Camera has MPEG4 & MJPEG compression. Some cheaper cams (including those in the Trendnet series) only feature MJPEG compression.

I give up! Camera won't work for more than a few minutes

NickSab "Discerning Consumer", Amazon
11 December 2011
  • Summary: UPDATE 12/16: I ordered a Foscam FI8905W, and while it's not perfect, it WORKS. I've got everything working - motion sensing alerts that send emails and also upload images to my FTP server. I also set up a dynamic DNS service so I can access the camera from anywhere. Point is, the problems I had with the TRENDnet camera weren't related to my technical skills. Also, no complaints about Amazon or SpaceBound - the delivery, packaging, etc. were great.

Very good camera

Ian Robinson, Amazon
1 September 2011
  • Summary: The camera is very robust and works very well after the firmware update. Wireless works fine with my E3000 LinkSys router. Also, the SecurView software provided for free by TrendNet works very well in my Android and PC workstation. This camera has a motion detect trigger feature which can send the pictures to me by e-mail using my own gmail account. I will by another one soon... but I will by the IP312WN. I realy recommend!

Poor documentation, undocumented URLs

E. Williams, Amazon
7 April 2011
  • Summary: For some reason, trendnet does not document the most useful URLs for this camera, so I'll set forth some that I use below. For instance, it is possible to stream the video via rtsp to your blackberry. You can also stream simple mjpeg video to the chrome browser natively. Streaming video: (blackberry) rtsp://ip:port/3gp (must enable 3gpp in the admin panel first. Use rtsp port (default=554)) (chrome browser) [...] (quicktime?

Love this Camera

sparkle7337, Amazon
22 February 2011
  • Summary: Most people will need a little help setting this camera up but once it is up it is so easy to use. The only issue I had is that the software for the camera only works with a pc and I have a mac. This means I can monitor from my mac but I cannot listen or talk. That is one of the reasons I purchased this camera. However, I liked the camera enough that I settled by setting up a simple older pc laptop and I use that for the other features. Not optimum but it works!

Excellent features but extremely poor instructions make setup very difficult

Living in Budapest "livinginhungary", Amazon
13 June 2010
  • Summary: Having read the Amazon reviews for the IP312W I expected some degree of difficulty in setting up the camera. It ended up being much tougher. I'm not an IT specialist but have set up wireless networks and devices to work over the internet. However I could simply not get the IP312 to work over the internet. Actually I still have not gotten it to work on my wireless network.

Multiple cameras do not work together!

Marcos Lacerda "marcos", Amazon
4 June 2010
  • Summary: I bought 4 units of this camera and so far only 3 were delivered. I can tell you right now: if you are not an advanced user or you do not know one that can help you, forget it! You will not be able to configure this camera to work on your network. The instructions manual is a joke. There are much more instructions and hints on other comments here in Amazon than in the manual. But if you are a geek you will make one single camera work on your network.
