The LIVE Ping Wireless Network Camera by Lorex is a wireless security camera that allows you to view and record security video, whether at home or at your place of business. It features dual lenses for day and night viewing, event push notifications and smart video motion detection.

You can record directly to the camera and store your VGA (640 x 480) footage on microSD cards (sold separately), smartphones, tablets or PCs/Macs. It uses H.264 compression so that video files can be streamed directly to connected devices without severely impeding your bandwidth. It can be connected to your home router through a wired Ethernet cable or a Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n connection.

Since you can connect wirelessly, there's an app for iOS and Android connectivity to your camera. Use your smartphone to monitor or view footage. You can even receive snapshot push notifications through your phone or email when an event triggers the camera, giving you some peace of mind when away from your property.

In addition to motion detection, the unit also has sound detection and infrared monitoring. It has two lenses, one for day viewing, and another that is triggered in low-light situations. The PIR and video detection has a 30' range at night via a single high-powered IR LED.

The built-in microphone allows you to listen over the LIVE Ping camera, and an optional external speaker lets you have two-way conversations for added security. The camera supports up to 20 simultaneous users and can be expanded to a four camera system.

Configure Wihtout a PC
All you have to do to activate your camera is plug it into power, connect to the internet with the press of a button, then simply scan the QR code on the back of the camera with your smartphone or tablet using the free downloadable Ping App. The QR code acts as the camera's ID, and once you scan it, you're instantly viewing live video right from your mobile device without the need of a PC.
Easy Internet Connection
The Ping is capable of connecting to the Internet over Wi-Fi with WPS. You can connect over Wi-Fi with no hardwired connection to the router necessary, so there's no need for an Ethernet cable as long as your router has a WPS (WiFi Protected Setup) function. The camera can detect and connect to your Wi-Fi network and start streaming video right away.
Simple microSD and Snapshot Recording
Choose to either record straight to your camera via a microSD card (optional, sold separately) using the built-in video recorder, or transmit directly to your smartphone, tablet, PC or Mac with the free remote viewing applications for mobile devices, laptops and desktop computers. Using H.264 video compression technology the PING maximizes recording space and conserves Internet bandwidth, enabling you to playback captured footage on your device right away.
Night Vision and Dual Lens Design
The LIVE Ping camera was built with a dual lens to deliver enhanced day imagery and night vision recording. One lens is used specifically for daytime operation, while the other lens is solely used during low-light conditions. The camera features an infrared LED that allows for viewing of up to 30ft away in total darkness.
Dual Motion Detection with Instant Alerts
The LIVE Ping camera features dual-motion detection technology with both Passive Infra-Red (PIR) and smart video motion detection. Alert accuracy provides motion sensing with more precise motion-activated recordings, and push notifications and email alerts (with snapshot attachments of the event sent directly to your device). The built-in PIR (Passive Infrared) sensor with a 20' range tracks heat from moving objects such as people or animals, while the video motion detection (with customizable sensitivity levels) catches any motion that doesn't generate heat and is outside the sensor's range.
Listen-in Audio
The LIVE Ping camera features a powerful built-in microphone that lets you hear what's happening around the camera, and delivers that audio straight to your mobile device or computer. The LIVE Ping also supports a two-way talk feature via an accessory speaker (sold separately) to the audio jack, helping bridge the gap between the camera and the end user.

        Comments about Lorex LIVE Ping Wireless Network Camera:

        Excellent camera that can be used as a stand alone or in a multi unit setup. Extremely easy set-up when using the optional WPS button found on most new routers, however that process becomes less clear when using a router without WPS. The issue then becomes configuring the camera for both admin and network purposes. Here the instructions could be better written so for example... the user easily understands that the setup on line 6, page 22 of the instruction manual is asking for the WIFI password/passphrase used to authenticate to the router.Additionally, The iPhone app seems to have issues connecting from outside networks, and it continues to search for the camera without connecting. When using the ipad it seems to easily connect where the iphone cannot

          Fairly easy to set up and use. Best feature is that you don't need a third party to host and forward the transmission of images. Nightime viewing can be problematic, but daytime viewing is excellent, and you can hear what is going on, as well as see. This is my third surveillance camera, from three different manufacturers (the other two were Linksys and Trendnet). This is the best, by far. Can view images on my IPhone.

              I put the camera in a good spot, installed the software, following the directions and hooked it up. I got picture and was pretty happy about it. Then I tried to install the software on my iPhone and it for some reason wouldn't get to the page where it would scan the box it came in. I took it back the next day.

                Comments about Lorex LIVE Ping Wireless Network Camera:

                For the past few years I have used a Linksys WVC54GCA camera which gave me the email alert feature I wanted and a Lorex WL2700 (two cameras and base unit) for night vision and PIR motion detection.
                The LIVE Ping Wireless Network Camera by Lorex gives me all of that in one camera! I can also look in on the house remotely using an app on my Droid phone or iPad and I didn't have to subscribe to anything or learn a new skill set.
