Excellent ip camera for interior monitoring. Some minor software issues. . Like many of the reviews for this ip camera, this one is a bit on the long side. I’ve therefore tried to summarise my findings before embarking on more detailed comments on setup and functionallity. The product is relatively easy to set up on a pc using the documentation and software on the supplied cd. A browser interface allows access to the huge range of configuration settings and a smartphone app allows remote viewing over local wi-fi hotspots or maybe 3g. There is a less useful, not particularly intuitive windows p2p application to enable configuration of multiple cameras etc. Motion detection and associated e-mail alerts work well but are not without drawbacks; the camera is clearly more suited to interior monitoring than viewing exterior access through a window. I have not yet tested the camera’s entire plethora of features but from what i’ve seen it would be an ideal monitoring / security camera for internal home, shop or small business. The item came well packaged in a nicely presented box with all the stuff required as listed exhaustively in other reviews.
Ok but no improvement over older model. We use these cameras as baby monitors and usually pick them up for about £40. Had the iprobot 1,2 and 3 now and each lasts about 6-9 months before developing a fault or stopping working (used 24/7). Seems bad but when you consider the price it’s actually good value compared to alternatives. Bought from amazon as hope they may offer better costumer service when this thing eventually goes. Improvements over the last model is you don’t need a pc to set them up but the iphone and ipad apps are garbage and the previous (excellent) apps don’t work with this model.

Hardware is good, software rubbish. Why can’t they just provide the software which is browser based?. I still have not been able to set this thing up because i’d need a windows pc or laptop to do this.
Tenvis IProbot3 HD H.264 IR-Cut Pan/Tilt PTZ Wireless Network IP Camera – Silver : After a bit of faffing with user id and password i was up and running. Foxes in the garden proved fascinating even after dark. And finding out the disgusting stench from a bonfire was actually a neighbour having a barbecue made me glad i had no invite. Being in the post office and telling the courier at the front door of my house that i was only two minutes away if he wanted to wait instead of returning on another day was an unexpected bonus i keep discovering new uses for this camera as it is just so versatile and anybody who has “neighbours from hell” should invest in one of these to gather evidence. This is not just a camera, it is a surveillance system.
