TRENDnet TV-IP312W Review: Excellent Night-Vision Camera
TRENDnet makes a wide range of networking products. I have had great
results with most of their products I have tried. (The exception
being a KVM switch, more on that another time.) The TV-IP312W
night-vision IP camera is a stellar performer that I highly recommend.
This is a plug and play camera, simply plug in ethernet and power and
you can start using it.
- Night-Vision, including infrared illumination
- Built-in microphone for audio monitoring
- 640x480, color in daylight, grayscale at night
- Full built-in webserver for standalone operation
- Built in ethernet and wireless capability
It works well as a security camera or as a baby monitor. The frame
rate is quite good over a wired network. I haven't tried the wireless
I use it with Java software to watch the live image and watch the
audio level on a PC and Roku PhotoBridge HD1000 via VNC.
I have technical details and
software for the TV-IP312W available here.
