An absolute bargain!

This review is from: [Updated Version] TENVIS JPT3815W HD 720P(1280x720) H.264 P2P Wireless Network IP Camera IR CCTV Security Monitor Webcam WIFI Pan/ Tilt (2-Way Audio, Night Version, PT control, iPhone & Android Mobile View (Black) (Electronics)
This is the 3rd camera purchased in 3 weeks, having at first been hesitant because of the low price I can say that the value for money in tremendous, It would be wrong to say that it can suit all purposes but for most indoor situations it is perfect. The colour rendition is not always correct but this does not detract in any way from the functionality of these cameras.
The software is adequate (always use "NewTenvis") and works flawlessly. Other software such as Ispy also works and can extend the functions e.g. zoom in. It is an electronic zoom only but may be useful for some.
We use the cameras to keep an eye on the property when we are away for extended periods, we do not believe that it will enhance security but it does offer peace of mind.
If you use this to keep an eye on your pets or as a babycam you will not be disappointed or even bird watching is possible if the camera is located under shelter. Wireless range is effective in my instance to about 30 metres so I may well purchase one to go in my remote garage. Email/alarm function works as described maybe a little too sensitive in that sunlight or wind blowing curtains will trigger. Careful location of the camera will avoid this.
Software setup is simplicity but it has to be done from a PC not a tablet or smart phone. I strongly suggest the auto setup and check each camera is using a different port (automatically assigned) this may be the reason why some have mention camera lockup in some reviews. Personally, I have no issues whatsoever and would recommend this camera even above Foscam at 3 times the price
