TV-IP851WIC Wireless Day / Night PTZ Cloud Camera

TRENDnet Logo

TRENDnet's Wireless N Day / Night PTZ Cloud Camera, model TV-IP851WIC, takes the work out of viewing video over the internet. Previously to view video remotely, users needed to perform many complicated and time consuming steps: such as signing up for a third party dynamic IP service and reconfiguring their router. The TRENDnet Cloud service removes all of these complicated steps. Users simply open a web browser and log into the TRENDnet Cloud with their unique password to view and manage this camera. Record crisp video in complete darkness for distances of up to 7.5 meters. A free app for mobile devices brings live video to smart phones and tablets.

About the TV-IP851WIC

Pan the camera side-to-side a remarkable 340° and tilt up-and-down 115° from any internet connection. Record crisp video in complete darkness for distances of up to 7.5 meters. Wireless n technology connects the camera to a wireless network and provides unsurpassed wireless coverage and improved streaming video quality. Add this camera to your wireless network at the touch of a button with Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS). The TV-IP851WIC offers 640 x 480 (VGA) video at up to 20 frames per second (fps), one-way audio, an adjustable lens, motion detection recording, scheduled recordings, email alerts, pan / tilt Auto-Patrol, date and time overlay, and four times digital zoom. A wall / ceiling mounting kit is included and the camera's off white housing blends into most environments.

2 out of 5 eggsNot that easy

Pros: Decent picture for the price

Cons: Hours trying to set up, and still not fully operational

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace baby monitor, but I have spent about three hours so far trying to get it to work on iphone. Got it to link to Ipad via wifi, but wont work on Iphone via 4g. In addition, now image is black and white all the time, and there is no sound, even though it is enabled.

Had a zmoda camera which was even worse than this on.
Does a wifi camera that is plug and play even exist?

Manufacturer Response:

Hello JP,

Please ensure you have the correct app installed. For Cloud Cameras it is the TRENDnet CloudView app. When adding the camera just use the 8 digit number in the custom URL printed on the label. The camera needs to have access to the Internet for you to be able to access it from your mobile network. Double check to ensure the camera has been assigned a valid network address. The black and white image occurs when the camera is in infrared mode for night viewing. The light sensor to trigger day/night mode is in the center right above the lens. If you need assistance with the camera please email and we’ll have someone assist you as soon as possible. Please include a link to this review.

4 out of 5 eggsGood camera for the price

Pros: -Price
-Cloud functionality
-Surprisingly good picture
-fairly easy setup
-very wide viewable range
-Night vision works well

Cons: -Phone App
-Somewhat large and kind of noisy during movement.
-Internal MIC is pretty terrible but it does the job
-No easy way to record video

Other Thoughts: I got this to scan my house in case me home alarm goes off so i can see if someone is actually inside or if something got tripped accidentally. I have no real desire to record video so this was a perfect choice for me. You have to manually adjust the focus on the unit by turning the little plastic circle around the lens, so the people saying that the picture is terrible are probably just dumb. The digital zoom is all but worthless, but this is true of anything running below full HD. The only real complaint I have with this thing is the phone app. You can't adjust any settings from it and you can't access your preset location settings, and panning with it is pretty close to torture. It would be an easy thing to fix I would think, so I don't know why they haven't done it. However the cloud connection software, which seems to work only with JAVA installed on you machine, works flawlessly. I click the swing button and it pans back and forth to every entrance in my house automatically. You can set up as many pan locations as you could possibly want. If they updated the near worthless phone app so you could use the swing function I would have given it 5 eggs, the other issues are nit-picky at best for this price point.

4 out of 5 eggsNice camera for the price

Pros: Price, flexibility, wireless internet connection, pan and scan, email alerts, good night vision, ease of setup, configurable to shut off led's

Cons: email alert triggered when camera switches from day to night mode and back again, low definition camera (this was expected so really should not be a con), Needs a solid wifi connection for reliable operation ( I suspect they eat some bandwidth), the zoom is somewhat worthless because of the low definition.

Other Thoughts: For the price I like and would recommend the camera. I like the flexibility to be able to move them to other locations with ease. The email alert function is very useful but you do have to learn what causes a false trigger such as light changes and day to night mode changes.

1 out of 5 eggsStay Away

Pros: Software is okay. Easy to set up.

Cons: Can't see any images clearly in day mode and camera is totally useless in night mode. Just completely forget about the zoom.

Other Thoughts: Spend a bit more money and get a lot more camera.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsNo Support and Poor Quality

Pros: The color is white and easy to match with a room

Cons: I spent 2 hours configuring and 1.5 hours on the phone with support. In the end I was told, "sometimes it will work and sometimes it will not work." The GUI is missing a lot of information. The firmware upgrade took six tries, before it would start. Support was no help, they do not listen, do not understood, and don't call you back. Online support never did get back to me.

Other Thoughts: paying for returning this product is not fun.

Manufacturer Response:

3 out of 5 eggsJust ok

Pros: Installed ok, no issues during setup. Like most IP cameras.

Cons: Quality just average. Works ok for my applicaiton, one might not be able to ID a person from +30 ft.

Other Thoughts: for under $200 it's just ok. If I had it to do over I would put my money on a higher priced camera. If one doesn't need higher quality picture it will do.

Manufacturer Response:

4 out of 5 eggsEggxpert Review

Pros: The software for the PC and smartphone worked flawlessly. Nice not to have to setup Dynamic DNS services or router port forwarding. I like the night view over daytime, the picture is clearest in night mode. Solid build for its price point. Motion control is good. Very clear video in night mode. Wifi range better than expected, installed the cam at the furthest point in my home from the router without issue.

Cons: My fish tank puts out a lot of background noise and the mic. was not able to filter it out (heave static), audio should have been better. Color mode video not as crisp as night time. Remote speakers for two way communications would have been nice to have. Digital zoom is not much use do to the poor video quality.

Other Thoughts: I've tested this cam for several weeks and like the packaged software for the PC and smartphone. Never had a connectivity issue to the cam. Good price point but I'm willing to pay more if the cam offered an SD card and speakers for two way communications. I don't think the panning sound is an issue for an entry level cam. I have an $850 cam which offers silent panning and great video quality, expect to pay more if that's what you're looking for.

5 out of 5 eggsFollow up

Pros: Still working great after a month or two. I've come to really enjoy having this camera. It has come in handy for quite a few things. Primarily keeping an eye on a pet recovering from surgery while I was at work/away. After setting the camera up to auto switch between day/night mode, the smartphone app is a fantastic tool to have. I couldn't recommend this enough to anyone who can dream up a use for the camera.

Cons: None since my original thoughts on my first review

4 out of 5 eggsNice Nanny Cam

Pros: The camera has a nice weight to it and feels very well built.

Setup for the camera was very easy. A guided setup with pictures takes you through all the steps no matter which connection type you choose.

Night vision works very good, in complete darkness the camera can easily pick up people and objects with clarity.

The web applet is seems very well designed, it is filled with tons of different options for controlling your camera.

One option I really liked was motion tracking, not many camera's feature this. It easily tracked my movements even in darkness.

Came with a metal wall mount which I did not use but no instructions on how to mount the camera to it were included.

Mobile apps are provided for free for either iOS or Andorid. It also comes with a full version of the SecurView Pro software rather than a trial like many other companies do.

Cons: Power and WLAN activity LED's are too bright., but they can be turned off,

Camera is a bit on the large side and tilt and panning the camera make alot of noise.

SecurView Pro software is over complicated, I could not get a video feed from the camera over Wi-Fi even with the correct settings. Only direct ethernet cable connection was working.

Wi-Fi seems to have a lot quicker refresh rate compared to a direct ethernet cable connection.

Mobile app(s) are buggy. The installation software recommends the trendnet clouldview app however this application is very minimal in terms of features. The trendnet securview app features alot more options and lets you tilt and pan the camera however this also suffers from bugs and force closing on android operating system.

Not actually a "cloud camera" since there is no server recording the video feed unless you set a home computer to do so.

Zoom is lack luster at best.

Other Thoughts: I would have liked to see this camera work with a battery pack instead of just an ac adapter, its not truly wireless.

Overall its a very nice web enabled camera, there are still a bit of bugs to work out though to make it truly a great piece of hardware.
