1. It is low resolution - point it outside the window and you will basically see lego cars. Don't buy this expecting it to be good enough for security.
2. For indoor use such as monitoring the baby at night, it does the job but only just. The power cable is very short, so you will struggle to mount this on top of a set of drawers, let alone a wardrobe.
3. It has a very narrow field of view, so you'll to extend that power cable and mount this in the corner of the room if you want to see anything other than half a cot.
4. To set-up wifi, you'll first need to connect it to your router (no network cable included!), and configure it via a PC/Mac. Once you've connected it to your wifi network, you can unplug it from your router and then connect wirelessly from an ipad etc.
5. It doesn't move/you can't pan around with this camera so once you've pointed it in a direction, that's where it stays.
1. Relatively cheap.
2. Infrared is good... bright enough for a small room.
Im summary I'd say this was average (2.5 stars).
I've "played" with IP cams for many years... long enough to have seen tremendous advances in features and interfaces.
I bought the Tenvis because it was (January 2014) a relatively "modern" camera, and I though that I might be spared some of the "old school" frustrations.
The factory default settings of the Tenvis include the use of a static IP address, instead of the usual DHCP.
I'm going to "go on" about this for a bit... including giving you "the fix"... but there are other issues discussed further down.
You might think this is good. (When you first connect, finding the IP address the camera has been assigned can be a minor pain.) But... and it is a big but... Tenvis decided to set my camera, at any rate, to 192.168.1.239.
The problem is with the third number, the "1".
My LAN... and many other people's... is set up for 192.168.1.xxx
Therefor, you can't get into the camera from my LAN. You'll see various discussions on the web about this.
It isn't, in my experience, enough to use the Tenvis "setup" software. (I don't like setup software in general, for IP cams. Use the geek's interface. It is worth the struggle, and leaves you more in control of what is happening to your computer. Do you want to give strangers access to an audio and video feed from someplace important to you?) I only tried the setup software in desperation.
It isn't enough to change the IP address used by a PC on you LAN. You have to make a change inside your router, to change the IP addresses it is using. As long as you have a PC on the LAN that accepts a DHCP IP address assignment, you should then be okay to go into the Tenvis camera, to change the addressing used by that. And then go back, put things back to your preferred scheme. And hope you don't drop any stitches along the way. (I was lucky enough to have a "spare" router... set up a temporary LAN just for this chore.)
The camera offers "motion detection", "beep on alarm", email alerts, FTP services, clients for mobile devices.
Well. Sort of. The motion detection is based on the whole scene. You can't say "look at this bit only", so if there's a window in your scene, and cars are passing, be ready for lots of alarms.
The "beep" only works if you use Internet Explorer to watch the camera's output.
You can have the beep OR email alerts (I haven't tried them, but will give Tenvis the benefit of the doubt) OR FTP uploading. You can't, for instance, get an email alert AND have an image uploaded to an FTP server. (And you can't control how many images are uploaded, even if you do accept having only FPT)
Watching the camera on a mobile device....
With an Android and the same infrastructure as worked fine with other, older, cameras, I couldn't get a "video" image, even if I cut the resoluting to an execrable 160x120 with one frame every two seconds. "Snapshot" worked, so I did have a connection.
As a basic baby, etc, monitor, locally, over your LAN (if you can overcome the static IP address issue)... maybe. Image is reasonable. (Quite a wide angle lens, but that's normal.) But why struggle with this limited device when there are many alternatives? If you really want one, be sure to check the autions... there must be many people selling on their disappointments.
Reluctantly I returned it, as I felt that this was just not up to the job.
Of course they are better cameras on the market but you have to pay a lot more. This camera do it's job.
And No. I don't work for tenvis. I have two models of that camera and going to get another two for my friend's shop.
Delivery - On time
Use - internal to monitor a room about 12' (3.66m) x 10' (3.05m) - send an email on activity.
Coverage - Gets about 80% of the room - more than enough for my purpose.
Getting it working - I am at an advantage of knowing how to set up CCTV Camera's having some previous experience and found this one easy.
Setup - events - up to 3 areas to monitor. Adjust sensitivity and threshold (until it is only sending you one when there is movement), email alert (used gmail account).
Wifi - connected to my wifi fine however only manages about 4-6 frames per second across it. Plug into network if you want more frames.
Recording - not sure if this can be connected to an NVR (camera recorder) of any kind as I haven't used it this way.
Motion detection - even on much more expensive cameras than this (£200-£400) this is always a case of fine tuning and never perfect. Seems to work ok and sends me an email alert with pic.
Picture - as mentioned above can be grainy or none existent in low light (as the camera has no night vision) but fine in normal light.
Value - for the money this is a great little camera for the use described above. If you want a camera for low light monitoring look else where, there is no IR on this one.
