Featuring separate lenses for day and night time surveillance, the Lorex LNC216 Wireless HD Indoor Network Camera with Night Vision and Motion Detection (NTSC) lets you keep an eye on your premises 24/7. The day lens can capture color images in real-time under a minimum illumination of 0.2 lux. The night lens, combined with the powerful LED, allows you to view up to 30’ away from the camera even in complete darkness. The camera captures and records footage in HD resolution up to 1280 x 800 at 30 fps (in real-time).

With the built-in microphone and speaker, you can communicate with the person at the camera site, and a speaker jack allows you to connect to an external speaker for addressing a larger audience. The indoor network camera features dual motion detection: PIR and video. The integrated PIR sensor can detect an activity up to 23’ away, and sound activated alerts add an extra layer of security to your home or office. Additionally, when any activity is detected, push notifications and email alerts with snapshots ensure you are always aware of what’s going on.

The indoor day/night camera offers ease and flexibility of installation: you can even install it in a location without LAN connectivity. The camera supports IEEE 802.11b/g/n wireless standards. With the included L-View software, you can set up an entire surveillance system consisting of up to 16 cameras for live viewing, recording, and playback. You can add your existing cameras to the system, or purchase new ones (sold separately) to expand your system as per your requirement.

When you’re away from a PC or laptop, your smartphone or tablet can be your personal monitoring equipment thanks to the free Lorex Ping app. Just install the app on your smartphone, scan the QR code, and you’ll be able to view live footage from your camera. You can also record footage to the on-board SD card (sold separately), to an external recording/storage device via the Video Management Software, to your NAS storage/cloud network, to your PC, or even on your smartphone.

    Comments about Lorex LNC216 Wireless HD Indoor Network Camera with Night Vision and Motion Detection (NTSC):

    So far it works the way it should. The temp is off by 10 degrees. Called tech support to see if I could calibrate it. 50 minute wait. That's very poor in my eyes.

      Like it:

      - Extra low lux - so excellent night vision
      - Hook up to laptops and mobile phone is auto and a cinch (I use a macbook)
      - You can hook up to a laptop/mobile with free Lorex download or a dvr ($$)
      - Can watch from anywhere in the world from laptop/mobile
      - Lorex software is free to download and install (I like that)
      - Can turn the flashing led's off via software

      - does not work on batteries (requires outlet power)
      - Bit larger than similar competing products
      - Video is saved in proprietary format and requires either a special player ($$) or a free converter to standard formats)
      - No remote control to change direction or angle

      Verified Buyer


      • cheap
      • Less Then 1 Hr Setup
      • Many options to customize
      • Shows Temperature
      • Small


      • Buggy software
      • Poor Image When Dark

      Best Uses

      • Baby monitor

      Comments about Lorex LNC216 Wireless HD Indoor Network Camera with Night Vision and Motion Detection (NTSC):

      it took 1 hr to set it up; the lens is wide-angle, meaning face recognition is possible only when the face is no farther than a few feet from it and in good light conditions, impossible when dark; the software is buggy: some of the options could not be set, and the worst thing was that motion triggered recording could not be selected because the right-click sub-menu never appeared, no matter how hard i tried. without this option the camera is plain useless.
