    If you are going to use this on a remote property or location, here is a lot to help you –

    1. Get some cheap sunglasses,break it, and tape one of the lenses over the camera to use it on the outdoors – it is really designed for indoor use & low light – a light sensitive and polarizing filter or sunglass is best –

    2. Do call Tech support for help – they are great !

    3. You need to know the IP address of your home ROUTER to enable people far away to look at this over the internet – and unfortunately that IP address is assigned by your Internet Service Provider (Verizon or Comcast for many of you & me too!) . and … they change that address and give you a new one occasionally. Normally you can get that from the main screen when typing 192.168.1.1 into your browser and an info page will provide you the 4 numbers you need.

    4. You also need to make sure that the router has “Port forwarding” enable for port #80. This is a default mode on some routers – not for others. Logging into the router control panel will have a page somewhere that lets you enable this if need be. Ignore this step and test – might just work (mine did!). For multiple cameras they each need to be forwarding on different port #s… 80, 81, 82, 83…. and the router needs to enable all of those ports to be forwarded….

    5. Once you know the IP address and enabled port forwarding, call a friend and have them put the IP address into their browser as an address – and add “:80″ (or other numbers for multiple camera situation) into the browser – that should let them see you or your view !! Note that they need to have Java and ActiveX installed and allowed in their browser !!

    6. As an example – making up the numbers here – if your router says the IP address is XX.yyy.ZZ.AA then you would put http://xX.yyy.ZZ.AA:80 into the browser – then put in the username and password for the camera – and viola – it works !!

    7. Note that if you power down the router, reset it, or if Verizon or Comcast does some maintenance work, the IP address #s change – so you need a way to get that data when needed! (I’m still working on that – it’d be nice if you could get it email’ed on demand from your ISP…..)

    Have fun – great camera otherwise (this imnprtant info above was not in the help or Tech doc CD I got with the cmaera!!

    I bought this wireless camera for $69.99 on sale through amazon. It has crystal clear video and works flawlessly. I can’t imagine why anyone would spend more money or say anything negative about this camera. I use it to view my dogs during the day and am able to use it with my iphone. There is an itunes application called cam-viewer that works great with this camera and the iphone. I highly recommend this camera.

    I’m very happy with this device. It does what I need quite well, plus a whole lot more that I may use someday. I’ll likely end up buying more of these.

    I was initially concerned about the fact that the setup seemed to need Windows. It turned out that wasn’t the case. However, for either Mac or Windows, the initial setup has to be done over Ethernet — and my network is all wireless. Fortunately I still had an old wired router. I used it to set up an Ethernet LAN with my MacBook and the Trendnet camera. Then I logged onto the router to find the camera’s IP address, and used that to log onto the camera directly. I entered the wireless network information, rebooted it, and it immediately found the WLAN. I put my wired router back on the shelf and haven’t needed it since.

    I have a reasonable level of network expertise. For someone who doesn’t, and/or who doesn’t have any access to Ethernet, you will need some help with this product setup — after which I think you’ll be well satisfied.

    As I’ve come to expect, the Amazon ordering and shipping experience worked well with this product. I’m a happy camper.

    Install and set-up went OK, test position close to the WLAN router went OK.

    Installed at the intended location the “W” started to act up within a day, unplugging and replugging would get it back to work for a few hours.

    Then it quit, won’t even do “W” mode when close to the router. Works just fine when on the wire.

    Reading a few of the other “trials and tribulations” I think this one will go back. ;) :)

    Update on the above:

    I obtained a RMA from the seller and a replacement (naturally it’s “pay up-front” for that! ;) :) ), but then decided that there had to be a solution to the WLAN problem.

    There sure was: get EVERY ONE of the settings correct and it works. That includes ALL the Wireless settings including the encryption i.e. if the router is set to HEX make sure the cam settings are in HEX too! The other pit fall: correct channel! for some strange reason the channel setting will revert back to the default (6) unless one sets the channel, selects mode as “ad-hoc”, then “apply”. After the “Apply” go back and reset the mode to “Infrastructure”. The channel setting finally stayed!

    Next project will be getting the focus as clear as possible for the outside, the reviews keep mentioning the excellent picture quality … not so far! ;) :)

    Got it to work on the wire (network cabling) but I am having problems getting to work on my wireless network… Did a firmware update but still no luck….

    It works great on the wire and has some pretty cool features… Since the wireless does not work yet, have not been able to deploy it in my garage for security… May just need to pull a network drop out to the garage…

    REVISED 2/5/2010 – Operator error has now been resolved.

    I was looking for was an IP camera that could detect motion and then capture a still image every 5 to 10 seconds until that motion ceased. The included SecurView software doesn’t allow you to capture a single image, but it will allow you to record a short movie when motion is detected. (You can apparently specify the maximum size of the movie file). Alas, Linux is the only OS that I run 24/7 in this house, and SecurView only runs under Windows.

    Someone here said that they got this camera to work with ZoneMinder (ZM) which runs under Linux, but I was not successful. (Apparently, there is a kludge you can patch into ZM to skip some extraneous garbage the camera injects into the video stream. I’m looking for something with a smaller foot-print than ZM, so I never tried that patch. BTW, the URI for video is /cgi/mjpg/mjpeg.cgi – don’t hit that with your browser though). You can get an image from the camera into a browser by hitting the camera with the URI /cgi/jpg/image.cgi. But ZM didn’t like that either, even using the username:password@host/URI format. (Rumor is that the camera is either missing or generating invalid HTTP headers so ZM can’t handle it – and sorry dude, it’s a TRENDnet problem).

    I didn’t have any trouble getting wireless networking going, WPA2-PRS using AES, (thanks to someone else here who explained the work-around for setting the channel number). I did have to barrow a laptop running Windows to do the configuration. :- (The configuration software is browser based, but it requires an Active-X control to do video streaming — in order to set up motion detection in the camera — so you have to use MSIE – as advertised). But the configuration user interface (in the camera itself) is feature rich and I thought that I’d died and gone to Linux heaven. (The camera itself is actually running Linux, hit the URI /cgi/systemlog.cgi for the camera’s syslog).

    You can specify an NTP server to get date/time at camera boot. You can turn off the LEDs on the front of the camera. You can time-stamp the video/images. You can create user accounts (on the camera) with unique passwords. You can configure an FTP ‘event server’ (active or passive) to which you can upload snapshots while viewing live video, You can give the camera a name that it uses as part of the path name to where it uploads images via FTP. (Also includes the date). You can configure motion detection (in the camera) using two adjustable portals within the view, and FTP those images to your FTP server. You can configure an EMAIL server for the same reason – I didn’t try it, someone else says here says it works. You can specify ‘schedule triggers’ (based on specific days and times) and upload snapshots to your FTP or EMAIL server. These are all configuration items within the camera.

    Be aware that there are other issues with this camera. Motion detection (in the camera anyway) appears to be based on changes in the ambient light. (I get lots of false detections at dawn and dusk). Night vision isn’t great – street light alone isn’t enough. The rumor is that the camera crashes every couple of days too. (Someone posted a work-around for that however: they just invoke the URI /cgi/restart.cgi every midnight to reboot the camera — and I presume that this person is also running an NTP server, to reset the date/time in the camera.) And, I wouldn’t call the software configuration in the camera all that ‘intuitive’.

    Windows users should be very happy with SecurView, which definitely allows you to watch real-time video and supports multiple cameras. SecurView can definitely detect motion and capture movies when motion occurs. (Over a wireless network, I don’t think that you’d be able to monitor more than 3 or 4 live feeds).

    If you want to use this camera under Linux, (to watch live video) you can apparently get ZoneMinder working by patching and compiling ZM yourself. Or, just use schedules and motion detection to FTP or EMail snap-shots up to your server. The 640×480 JPEG images take up about 40K per snap-shot.

    For the cost, this camera does a terrific job. And now that I’ve figured out how to use it, I’m going to buy a couple more for home security usage.

    I bought one of these cameras, knowing that it was claimed to be reliant on active-x for the video stream, but my Mac-based application could work around that. My early experiments at setup and use were with Firefox and, as expected, the live video wasn’t available. I went thru the setup and put it online and then went to a different machine using Safari (v3.1) and lo and behold: It streamed the video using an ultracam.jar applet. I troubleshot the Firefox installation and found an incompatibility with /library/internet plug-ins/javaplugincocoa.bundle. Once that plug-in was removed, the video stream worked under Firefox with the same ultracam applet. Also tested successfully with Opera v9.62.

    Wireless setup and performance are nominal and straightforward, as are the function with DynDNS and emailed events. One must remember that the default IP address of the camera is probably not in the same non-routable range as most use with their LANs.

    Mac users should not fear this camera. Sporting features like the NTP clock & timestamp, DynDNS, and price make it a really nice deal.

    My first suggestion; leave yourself plenty of time. This will not be accomplished in five minutes. However, I would suspect many of you reading this column are mighty frustrated by now, and are looking to the reviews for assistance. Fact is you will learn more from these reviews than from tech support! Here’s how to set these cameras up (I have four!) TRENDnet Wireless Internet Camera Server (TV-IP110W)

    Step 1. Lose the disk and the instruction manual. They are of little use.

    Step 2. Enter the […] website, find your camera in download section.

    Step 3. Download and install SecureView and IPSetup.

    Step 4. Power up the camera and install the ethernet cable to your router.

    Step 5. Load IPSetup and find your camera, double click and enter the setup program.

    Step 6. Select static IP and record the camera number, configure your settings.

    Step 7. Hint! for email notification, ping your mail server and enter the numeric IP.

    Step 8. Hint! select this NTP time server for your camera <64.90.182.55> otherwise the camera will forget the time each time you unplug it. This is a pain to reset! Make sure you enter your correct timezone, e.g. GMT -5:00 for Eastern US Time Zone

    Step. 9 Port forward your router using the router setup routine. Just do a google on port forwarding!

    Step 10. If port forwarding doesn’t work, select another port, e.g. default port ’80’ did not work for me!

    Step 11. Hint! You don’t need SecureView to capture and email images! Just enable motion detect on the setup screen.

    Step 12. To make sure you can view cameras from a remote location, use a laptop and connect to an unsecured wireless connection, enter “[…]” and record your IP address. Now enter your IP address e.g. […] where the numeric string is your IP and :80 is the port you forwarded under steps 10 and 11.

    Step 13. Hint! Do not try to view camera images on your desktop and wireless laptop at the same time! You will lose connectivity to your IP Cam! Each Camera must have a unique port!

    Step 15: Sit back and enjoy the view!

    PS. Trendnet offers Excellent technical support. They are open on New Year’s Day and were extremely polite and helpful.

    The TRENDnet wireless Internet Camera (TV-IP110W) exceeded my expectations so much I now have a total of 5 of them. I bought these to monitor a second home from my first. The setup was very simple and flawless. I admit I’m a geek so the typical non-geek might have a problem with the over-simplified documentation. The camera’s settings let me easily set them up for indoor/outdoor monitoring etc. Unfortunately, I did have a problem that when power is lost, the camera gives up trying to find the wireless network, prior to my wireless becoming available. This meant needing to reboot the camera manually. Because I was remote I was unable to do so. I installed X10 power models on each camera so that now I can remotely power the cameras on/off as needed remotely. I’ve had the cameras installed for 6 months now and they have performed beautifully.

    I bought this on a Gold Box deal and am very glad I did. First, the image quality is superb. TRENDnet supplies software to assist in setting up the camera but people with a bit of technical experience can go straight to the web interface and set things up there and there are some great features that allow you to set this camera up pretty much however you want.

    All of the camera settings are configurable – brightness, contrast, saturation, frame rate, resolution, and even settings to synchronize with 50 or 60 Hz lighting or outdoors. It also supports WPA2 encryption and three levels of password-protected access. You can have it grab images based on movement (requires accessing the camera with Internet Explorer to configure that for some reason) or on a time schedule, and either have it e-mail the images or ftp them somewhere. And it supports dynamic domain name configuration so you can access the camera even if your IP address changes.

    It also supports time and date stamping the images – pretty much a necessity – but it also supports accessing an NTP server to make sure the onboard clock is accurate.

    And once you get the camera all set up the way you want it, you can save out the configuration file to make it a snap to reconfigure it in case you ever do a hard reset that restores all the defaults.

    Not that it will matter to most, but this camera server is actually a full ARM-based computer running Linux. If you go to the TRENDnet website, besides getting the latest firmware, you can also get the source code for the camera OS for those that want to tinker.

    The final issue is just the value. You are getting a video camera and a web-serving computer with both wired and wireless interfaces for this price. I’m glad I got mine and am using it to monitor my front porch for visitors and also as a way to monitor the weather at home. With multiple cameras, it’s easy to monitor all sorts of things if someone wants to.
