TRENDnet recently sent me a TV-IP551WI to review.  First, some background on TRENDnet:

The Wireless N Day / Night Internet Camera, model TV- IP551WI, transmits real-time video over the Internet. Record crisp video in complete darkness for distances of up to 7.5 meters. Wireless n technology 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).

Record 640 x 480 (VGA) video at up to 20 frames per second (fps). Manage up to 32 TRENDnet cameras with the included complimentary camera management software. Advanced features include adjustable motion detection recording areas, email alerts, scheduled recording sessions, one-way audio, an adjustable lens, and four times digital zoom. A wall / ceiling mounting kit is included and the camera’s off white housing blends into most environments.

Installation

TRENDnet ships a software/installation disk with the camera.  This camera support Wi-Fi Protected Setup mode, making it very easy to establish a link with the camera, but I opted for a full manual installation.  Insert the disk into your PC and you are greeted with this screen.

Click on Install Camera and follow the instructions for a WPS installation…very easy indeed!

  1. I recently bought the same camera for use as a baby monitor and couldn’t be happier with it. Completely agree with the reviewer’s assessment. My only complaint with the camera is that audio doesn’t work over wireless, which is apparently fairly common according to Google. Everything works perfectly over a wired connection, though.
