1 out of 5 eggsflawed design ruin good camera

This review is from: TRENDnet TV-IP311PI (v1.0R) 10/100 Mbps PoE Port Outdoor Vandal Resistant 3 MP HD Dome Day/Night IP Camera

Pros: Good video quality ( day only )
sturdy metal mount

Cons: -unusable night vision due to IR glare
-Cable water proof guard unusable with patch cables
-Mounting requires opening camera cover exposing sensitive internals
- Zero X-Y ( left-right ) adjustment without changing mount or opening camera cover
- Z ( up -down ) adjustment requires opening camera cover and adjusting two very small screws
-web interface live view requires some no-name plugin making mobile use require the app

Other Thoughts: This camera has good video quality. However it has many other problems that make this unit something i can't recommend.

The web interface is decent however it requires some no name plugin install. If you are on a mobile device you can't see live video unless you use the app. Thankfully the rtsp support is decent I used VLC on my ipad during adjustment. one other annoyance is that the IR emitter have no separate on off.

The unit mount is a deal breaker. The mounting screw holes can only be accessed by removing the camera cover. This not only exposes the lens and inside camera cover to dust it also very difficult when you are standing on a ladder. If you think you won't see much dust or pollen perhaps your house exterior is cleaner the mine but most people have eases that are slightly dirty .The cover is attached by a fragile looking grounding strap which further complicates cover removal and replacement.

The unit has several IR emitters and when they work the night vision is reasonable but still has some reflections from the IR. The IR is not well blocked from the lens and since you have to remove the cover to install and adjust even the slightest misalignment of the cover makes the night vision worthless .

I know this is not a PTZ camera. However this camera's design makes even manual adjustment painful. Need to adjust the view left or right 30cm ? Your only choice is to remove the cover, unmount and start over. Need to move the view down a little ? You must remove the cover and adjust two tiny screws on either side of the lens replace the cover and test . Not fun if you are mounting outside standing on ladder. Even worse if you are troubleshooting a IR reflection problem and its dark .

I took a lot of time to plan my installation, I fabricated a mount to give me some left right adjustment, I have professional grade tools and skills. None of this could compensate for the design of this unit.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat camera - on daylight only

This review is from: TRENDnet TV-IP311PI (v1.0R) 10/100 Mbps PoE Port Outdoor Vandal Resistant 3 MP HD Dome Day/Night IP Camera

Pros: It's a power over Ethernet camera that is very compact and doesn't stick out much once mounted. The field of view and resolution is excellent and the daytime pictures just brilliant. Works like a charm on blue iris

Cons: Unusable night vision. Worked with tech support at trendnet with no sucess. All suggested setting changes, camera mount tweaking and lens cover optimization did not solve the issue.
A technically same camera IP-310 (bullet style) will delivery you a incredible good nighttime picture. The dome version IP-311 doesn't, because of reflections.
I'm still hoping to get this worked out or returned and exchanged to the IP-310 style, but as the 30 days have already passed, I don't know what solution we are going to find with trendnet and newegg

5 out of 5 eggsNice Camera for Price

This review is from: TRENDnet TV-IP311PI (v1.0R) 10/100 Mbps PoE Port Outdoor Vandal Resistant 3 MP HD Dome Day/Night IP Camera

Pros: 3MP, POE, Great Picture

Cons: Aver-USA NV6480e16 capture card doesn't natively support, although it works under RTSP.

Other Thoughts: Other reviewers don't know what they are talking about. to give one star because of linux support is a joke. This is an open standards ONVIF camera. doesn't get much more universal than that.

1 out of 5 eggsDONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!

This review is from: TRENDnet TV-IP311PI (v1.0R) 10/100 Mbps PoE Port Outdoor Vandal Resistant 3 MP HD Dome Day/Night IP Camera

Pros: easy to install

Cons: Video suite and Install Software is extremely not user friendly. The Installer would not find the cameras. I found them by inputing each IP address and it worked fine but you will have to log into each camera locally to see what is going on.

dont buy and go with something a little more nicer.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat camera hardware wise but onboard ip-camera software has issues

This review is from: TRENDnet TV-IP311PI (v1.0R) 10/100 Mbps PoE Port Outdoor Vandal Resistant 3 MP HD Dome Day/Night IP Camera

Pros: Best Priced 3megapixel High Definition Dome IP Camera for Microsoft Windows only users.
You can Zoom in on live view - which is a very awesome feature.

Cons: -1 star for no linux compatibility:
Absolutely No LINUX Compatibility whatsoever!! Does not work with any wine32 or the 64 bit versions, Does not work with the new PipeLight MS silverlight integrated version of wine. Also Does not work with any playonlinux wine configuration. This camera only works with windows and according to the manual with Apple Macs.
-1 star for restricted remote configuration;
The software is either flawed or it is programmed to prevent remote access configuration through dynamic dns hosting. You cannot change critical functionality such as motion detection and event triggers remotely through the web interface even when logged in as administrator. The only way to effect changes to critical camera functionality is to log on remotely to a local computer connected to the same local network the ip-camera is connected to.
-1 star for event trigger configuration which requires server configuration scripts on the FTP server. The FTP event trigger configuration is highly problematic . The ftp motion detection trigger sends photos to an FTP server but only into a single default directory on your server. It does not create new nested sub directories based on the date or time the snapshot was taken - A cheap 50 dollar indoor Ip-Camera that i bought 5 years ago from D-link does all of this but Trendnet's ip-camera for all its advanced hardware features just cannot seem to get the software portion of an ip-camera right. This is a major problem for me because at the point when I have 10,000 pictures in one directory on my server I cannot hope to view or browse these pictures through a web-interface. In order to view these event snapshots I have to run a bash scrip daily on my server to loop through the days of the month and then move each motion photo event snapshot(s) into a corresponding sub directory so that i can then view motion detection pictures that were taken.


I own 9 ip cameras. Three of them are made by Trendnet. I just purchased a linksys 1080 3MP from newegg. I find it comparable in hardware specs to this camera, although it costs twice as much, hopefully the onboard ip-camera configuration software will be up to my standards.

Other Thoughts: The software interface of this Ip-camera in my opinion has a few major configuration shortcomings that are highly problematic for me.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Camera Amazing Quality

This review is from: TRENDnet TV-IP311PI (v1.0R) 10/100 Mbps PoE Port Outdoor Vandal Resistant 3 MP HD Dome Day/Night IP Camera

Pros: This camera delivers beyond High Definition video. The colors are bright, vibrant and crisp. The Low/No light picture is clean and clear. I installed one of these outside in my backyard enclosure to monitor my pool and entrances. This kit even came with the outdoor dome. I live in FL and have had it up for over a month and have had no issues with condensation. What an amazing value for the price, I am a fan!

Cons: The software that came with the camera on the CD could never find the camera. However it didnt matter, I use a free program called iSpy as a central ip camera server and had no issue using it with that.

Other Thoughts: The person who wrote the poor review, obviously doesn't understand the difference between a PTZ camera and a camera that has Pan and Tilt ranges. This camera is a stationary camera, but once it is mounted you can Pant and Tilt it to center it on what you are looking at

1 out of 5 eggsMisleading Specs

This review is from: TRENDnet TV-IP311PI (v1.0R) 10/100 Mbps PoE Port Outdoor Vandal Resistant 3 MP HD Dome Day/Night IP Camera

Pros: Cheap

Cons: The specs state: Pan: 356 degree and Tilt: 15 - 90 degree. There is no remote control of tilt or pan. If you want to tilt or pan the unit, you must remove the cover, remove the camera shroud, loosen 3 screws, then adjust the camera by hand. then reinstall the cover. I bought this unit expecting a motorized tilt/pan.. It is essentially a fixed position camera, nothing more.
