    Great camera

    By Jethroe

    from Arizona

    Comments about Trendnet TV-IP551WI Wireless Day / Night Internet Camera:

    This camera is fairly simple to set up, however getting it to stream for a smart phone is challenging for the non-savvy network user. I was able to get it working after seeking help from an IT friend.

    Low light issues, otherwise good

    By Elliott

    from Connecticut

    Comments about Trendnet TV-IP551WI Wireless Day / Night Internet Camera:

    I have owned this for two weeks. In moderate to low light, there are flashing white and blue lines in the video. In full light the lines are not visable. From reading other website comments this is a design flaw not a bad unit. I was about to contact B&H and exchange it, but having read this is a known issue, I will live with it, given camera was cheap. You get what you pay for.

    Difficult to setup and configure

    By security camera user

      • Difficult To Set Up
      • Not User Friendly
      • Time Sink

      Best Uses

        Comments about Trendnet TV-IP551WI Wireless Day / Night Internet Camera:

        This security camera was not user friendly to setup at all. I have good working knowledge on routers, dns, server applications, and on. I spent over 4 hours trying to set up this camera on wireless mode and set it remote viewing. The user guide and help documents was difficult to follow. I got frustuated and gave up. in comparison to a different product I was able to set the other product in 20 minutes no problem.

        I believe the setup process for this camera needs to be revamped. I don't want to spend hours trying to even to get a product to work.

        The remote viewing feature required an extra step to configure with a router and setup the dns and ports to view remotely. The time wasted on this product I could have purchased a different product and set it up with less time.
