Night vision & unique Dual Lens design  

IP camera with night visionThis camera was built with a dual lens to deliver enhanced day imagery and excellent night vision observation.  One lens is used specifically for day time operation providing a clean and colourful picture.  While the other lens is solely used during low light conditions, with the image automatically switching to a crisp and clear black & white night vision.  The camera features a powerful infrared LED that allows for viewing of up to 30ft away in total darkness.  Be in the know at all times no matter what time of day or night.

Dual motion detection technology with instant alerts to your phone

IP camera with motion detectionFeaturing dual motion detection technology with both Passive Infra-Red (PIR) and smart video motion detection.  Alert accuracy is drastically improved, providing superior motion sensing that ensures more precise motion-activated recordings, push notifications and email alerts with snapshot attachments of the event sent directly to your device. The built-in PIR (Passive Infrared) sensor tracks heat from moving objects such as people or animals, while the video motion detection with customizable sensitivity levels catches all the motion that doesn’t generate heat and is also outside of the PIR sensor’s 20ft range. Instantly know if anything happens at your home, small business or vacation properties all at once!

Listen-in audio with push/email audio alerts.

IP camera with audio alertsFeaturing a powerful built-in microphone that lets you hear what’s happening around the camera straight to your mobile device or computer.  The LIVE Ping also supports a two-way talk feature by connecting an accessory speaker (sold separately) to the audio jack, helping bridge the gap between the camera and the end user.  Being able to talk to your camera from anywhere in the world is a great function to have.

    I must say, for my "bang for the buck", the cameras I purchased have been an ASSET!!! I can monitor each property from wherever and whenever I want! The quality of the video is terrific, and the ability to toggle the sound, on and off is a perk, as well! I had a few setup issues, mainly my fault, that the support team helped me solve without hesitation. I give Lorex Cameras a "thumbs up"!!!

    Good price for this camera, rich feature with on-board motion triggered recording, but NAS motion recording is having bugs; also it is better to have the feature to define motion detect areas like other cams.

    I bought an LNC101 on the Black Friday sale, I wasn't expecting much for the price but was pleasantly surprised at how good this camera is. It works really well in low light unlike another camera I bought from a diff manufacturer and the picture quality is good. The camera settings are easy to adjust using the web interface which is designed well.

    I am currently not using the Lorex apps to record or view but am using a 3rd party program instead. It would have been nice if this camera supported MJPEG video streams instead of just RTSP, but I was able to work around this by using another program to convert the stream.

    Overall, a very good camera and I would be interested in purchasing more in the future if they go on sale again (or next year for Black Friday again!)

    I had a couple of LNC216's already and just finished adding 2 LNC254's to the system. The PTZ functionality of the 254's is very handy and the whole thing was quite easy to setup. Picture quality is great and having the mobile app to view remotely is extremely convenient. Knowing that the house and kids are visually accessible from almost anywhere is real piece of mind.

    Great product.

    I recently purchased two (2) LNC204s. After a little effort and some trial and error, I was able to get both working on a windows PC and an android tablet. (It might have helped if I completely read the directions.) Quality of picture, sound and other features (wireless, alarm, 2-way communication, e-mails, ext. speaker jack, temperature, and memory) are well worth the investment. Good enough to where I purchased two (2) additional LNC204s. The only drawback is that apparently Windows phone devices are not supported by Lorex.

    I got the package deal with the LNC204 indoor Wi-Fi cam and the LNC226X outdoor Wi-Fi cam. The setup for the LNC204 went well. With the LNC226X, the default camera password did not work when trying to connect the camera to L-VIEW for the first time. The password is saved in the Video section of the web configuration and was not the expected 'lorex'. This tells me I ordered a brand new camera but Lorex sent me one that had been previously configured. Both cameras are working AOK.

    I wish there was an option to schedule alerts just based on time, like, every 15 seconds or whatever. With the LNC204, I can set an alert on a whacky temperature to make it fire repeatedly, but the LNC226X only alerts on motion.

    Great product. Excellent hardware.

    Only complaints:
    Lorex should have one app for all camera systems to allow for expandability across different product lines.

    Additionally, there should be an interface for PC viewing and recording to networked PC/NAS.

    I think the size and cost is great, however no matter what I do I can not get the set up going, Sooooo how am I going to write a report about the LNC 204 (2pack)
    When I am able to get it up and running I will consider writing a review at that time./
    Maybe it will give the company more incentive to help me get this on line.

    I purchased a LNC216 to watch my house in the winter time while I vacation in the south. The main reason I selected the LNC216 was the ability to monitor the temperature in my home. Learning the system setup is a little tough and customer service wait times could be improved. I would recommend Lorex.

    This is to update my June 1 review. As planned I submitted a support ticket to find out why my LN104 didn't connect via the Cloud Connection. Within 24 hours I had a response that the LN104 doesn't work on the Cloud Connection but instead the Lorex Ping application which is downloaded from the Apple Store will provide remote connection. I did as instructed and sure enough IT DOES!! I am impressed. Up from 4 to 5 stars

    Have installed a LN104 in my home for security and to be able to watch our dogs while we are off-premises. So far am very pleased except for one problem. I installed a SD memory card which is great as it works even when the camera is off line. The pictures both live and recorded are great. Only problem so far is that I have been unable to connect via the Cloud Connection. When I go to (user name).lorexddns.net, the browser responds that it is unable to connect to that site. So much for off-premise monitoring. I plan to call Support and see what I am doing wrong.

    So far, So good! I haven't mastered the full potential of the LNC204PK2 cameras yet, but I am impressed with the picture quality of the cameras. I originally bought them to use as a "home monitor" when I go RVing this summer. One of the features that I liked was the ability to see the temperature. Living in Florida, you have to run the A/C to keep the house from mildewing; with the temp display, I can monitor my A/C operation along with the outside security of the property. One of my other concerns was what would happen when the power "went off"? No problem here either, the cameras are able to find my Wifi router when the electricity comes back on and they begin to send out their HD pictures. I am very hopeful that all of the other features will work this well. I am considering a couple more cameras for other parts of the house. These cameras are a great buy and very simple to operate.

    I like this LNC226X ip camera for its video both in quality and in fps (speed). I have several cameras for security around my house and the LNC226X provides the best view of moving objects and people of any of my cameras. I like the easy hookup with the ability to effortlessly view my LNC226X over the internet with the Ping App on my iPhone or iPad. I have settled on using a wired connection because in my network the wireless connection was too slow and flakey. I was able to connect wirelessly, but I was not happy with the results. The wired connection works just great for me. I have installed a 32gig micro-sd card in the camera and have set the camera to record continuously to it. I have my camera set to motion detect and record to a disk on my router. All of this works well for me. I have had a difficult time getting used to the l-view and l-play software. However, I have been able to use them to successfully find and copy to cd video that I would want to share with whomever. The client software is the week link on this camera. I would really like to use a third party software to be able to see all of my cameras in one app. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find a way to do this. Customer support has been very good, but they are limited in what they can do to help me.

    In summary, I think the LNC226X is a great camera! However, the software is in a nascent state and needs to be upgraded or Lorex needs to find a way to let folks use third party software to control the LNC226X.

    I purchased the Lorex HD 720p Wireless Wi-Fi Camera. Prior to purchasing the cameras, I watched the video that claimed how quick and easy the setup is. After receiving my cameras, I followed the same instructions on the video and on the manual, and the setup was truly that easy and simple. Once the app is located and downloaded, the rest is quick and easy. I am able to connect to the camera via mobile or Wi-fi when I am away from the house, and check the images of my home.

    The quality of the video is ok, but I was hoping for better resolution since it claims to be HD. The night vision works well indoors and the picture quality is ok as well. Setting up recording and other preferences and features (alarms, temperatures, etc) took a little longer to program, and might be difficult for those that are not too tech savvy.

    The cameras do not include the micro SD card, but can easily be purchase, for recording and storing images. Recorded information can be reviewed, but you have to scroll all the way down many, many, dates to get to the latest recording. I would prefer if it can be sorted by date, so that the latest recording is on top, not at the bottom of the file.

    Overall, I am happy with the product and have purchased another set of Lorex IP cameras.

    These are great little surveillance cameras that provides great night vision images even with minimal or no light. The ping feature is a great way to stay in touch with home - sweet - home while travelling. The only thing is about the swivel unit as it needs tightening frequently.

    Bought two cameras to monitor house while we are away. Wanted something that could "watch" the hot water in a dark basement and monitor house temperature for furnace problems. The LCN204 does exactly that. It certainly has many more capabilities that, at this point, are not needed in my circumstance. Nice to know they are easily available. Set up was surprisingly simple and quick -- I'm no computer expert. I can now view both cameras from my desktop, Samsung tablet and Microsoft Surface Pro.

    this is a great little camera. I have it mounted on window sill overlooking driveway. Surprising
    good resolution. I can eliminate most of window glare. For night viewing through window in order to eliminate reflection of IR night light I set night control to manual/day so light doesn't
    come on; set to B/W with contrast at 4 and brightness 9/10. and max light sensitivity. Able to see quite clearly to end of driveway with only street light ( pic somewhat grainy but more than
    adequate). Got it for $70 on black fri. sale. What can be bad about that!

    Camera works seemingly ok internally, externally would have to be weather protected. Power supply cord length is limited. Depending on your wireless service providers policy for bandwidth usage is important as camera will drop connection almost immediately when corporate gets greedy upset.

    The camera itself is exactly what I expected for the money spent. It has quite a few features for a low cost unit, the picture quality is what you should expect for VGA, no more, no less. The night vision should probably be considered good for this type of camera. Hey, you want 60 ft range with HD then go spend the money. I noted that even in complete darkness within 20 ft or less I could easily recognize faces. The L-View disk and downloadable Ping software for Android is actually pretty good, again, they have quite a few advanced features that worked without any problem for me so far. I had the camera up and running on my desktop Window 8.1 PC, 2 Android tablets, and a cell phone without problems. I've driven to wifi-hotspots around town and hooked up to the picture even at a McDonald's, does require a fair signal. It pushes alerts via email that are quick and include a snapshot, so there is a permanent record on the web for security. All in all the product is very satisfactory for the money. I would have rated it a 5 except for the documentation that comes with it. Miserable. Take the time to review the online manual. The brief 'Quick Start" is confusing and misleading, leaves out a lot, clarifies nothing. I probably will buy a second camera in the future to augment the one I have.

    The Lorex LNC204 camera is an amazing camera. Other than some clarity issues with the microphone, everything else is spot on. Even in the darkness of night, it produces clear video. The setup was amazingly easy and I was impressed enough to buy another one.

    I like the LNC204 wireless cameras. I purchased two LNC204 from Costco and received it two days ago. Out of the box the setup was pretty simple. I did exactly what the video demo do and both cameras are on the local network and the internet just like that.

    The video quality is pretty good but a little bit oversaturated for a bright room - even set it to indoor-sunlight and put the brightness to 1. But everything else is good.

    I like the alarm/scheduling feature. I should be able to get an instant snapshot emailed to me before the would be intruder cut off my camera. I ordered micro sd cards to do additional recording.

    I like them so much that we decided to order two more to cover all the first floor of our room.

    I purchased the LNC204 HD wireless cameras. They provide the best reception, color, and quality at a reasonable price. The set-up for remote viewing on my laptop, tablet, and cell phone was super easy. The reception is clear and perfect.

    I really like the built in speaker and microphone which my old cameras did not have. That was one of the major reasons for purchasing this camera set.

    Now I can watch my property when out of town, get e-mail alerts, and feel quite safe that everything will be exactly the way I left it.

    We now have 7 of these LNC 100 Series IP cameras in use in our (2) homes. They are great for keeping an eye on what's happening 3000 miles away in the house we are not occupying. If you have a wireless router with WPS function, setup is extremely simple and you can be operational in less than 5 minutes per camera.

    We have the Lorex software on our Macs, iPads and I-phones and they all work great. E-mail notification function works well.

    My only regret is not buying the 200 series cameras which have built-in temperature readouts.

    After having owned 2 of these cameras for about 2 years now I can honestly say that these are some the best " BANG FOR YOUR BUCK" security cameras on the market. They are easy to setup, work wired or wireless, run off of virtually any USB power supply, portable and easy to place in plain view or hidden. The ability to replicate security video from micro SD cards, to a PC on the network, a NAS or a cloud drive gives me a LOT of piece of mind! Access from mobile Android phone is great, bandwidth dependant of course. The ability to allow 2-way audio just sets it in a whole different bracket from comparably priced cameras. On the business side I can actually give virtual private lessons for martial arts,tactical firearms or computers and networking. On the fun side it is HILARIOUS watching and hearing my miniature dachshunds try to figure out where I'm hiding when I "call" them from my phone...lol. The only improvement I would suggest is a range extender and battery pack for remote locations. However, I'm not entirely sure they haven't already done that and any battery pack for a mobile phone should work fine, as long as it has a usb connection. I have seen better quality and features, but no where near this price! As the owner of several companies that are centered around technology and security I absolutely love and recommend these cameras.

    We bought two LNC-116 cameras, and they work fine - simple setup, clear images, and amazing low-light capability.
    However, the playback software )L-Play), is very buggy. It's almost impossible to proceed to a specific time in a recording. Tech Support tells me that my only recourse is to return the product, they won't have a fix until the next release of the software, and they don't know when that will be.
    To complicate that issue, the software is supposed to check for updates when it is launched, but it doesn't, even though there is an update available. By the way, the available update (v1.0.10), which I found with the help of Tech Support, is even bugier than the original (v 1.0.0)

    I purchased the LNC104-3PK and love them. The cameras were fairly easy to set up. There were some differences between the instructions on the iPhone app and the hard copy manual, but I was able to install easy enough. They have been working great. I did a fair amount of research and these seemed to have the best 'bang for the buck'. The picture quality is good and the sound too. I purchased them to make sure my 85 yr old mother is doing ok in her home with her caretaker. I monitor using my phone and on my PC during work. I highly recommend them.

    I got my camera a few days ago and I am very happy with my decision. I was a little confused about the set up, but the tech support worked with me every step of the way. What's nice is that right out of the box it is really ready to go with very little effort and no technical background. Just connect to the router, install the app on your phone, and you're ready to stream remotely. I thought it would be harder but it was not. Impressive tech at an affordable price. I got it for about 120 at Home Depot.

    I originally purchased two LNC 104 cameras sand installed those without any problems using the WSP feature. I had cameras before but those that you have to set up with port forwarding etc. They work but a lot harder to install and keep going. No problems with the IP cams the have been running for about five months without a glitch. I have since purchased two additional, the LNC 204. from the time I took them out of the box, install the Lorex PING app and used the WPS on the router, both cameras were running in less than ten minutes. They are great and the picture is perfectly clear on all four. If you need cams to watch inside your house or business, I definitely recommend any of those two models.

    The cameras were not difficult to set up, and start using. I have been using the mobile app on my Android phone, and it seems to work well. I have had to reset the cameras via my phone from time to time due to the cameras not responding/handshaking.

    The quality is ok, typically 1024x768, and the night vision may need some tuning based on location/lighting. Normally the fps remain between 8~15 regardless of any connection.

    All in all, these were a good buy when compared to some of those terrible baby monitor sets that have awful features and UI. The lorex cameras can be used for home security, baby monitoring, etc...based on what you need.

    The cameras are great however recording video to MicroSD cards limits your functionality of these cameras. For example, even if you set a HD resolution to record, the cameras record at 6 fps and set to a low mobile resolution. This is hard coded and cannot be changed. Perhaps a future firmware upgrade.

    The other issue I have is while recording to MicroSD card you can't take advantage of the video playback app that is included with the cameras as that App is only used to work with videos stored on a NAS. To play back videos from SD you have to view the cameras live and click the SD card playback button which only allows you to view 5 minute segments and you cannot seek through your video meaning you have to watch the entire video which is a huge waist of time. You can download the videos from the web interface however they are only 5 minute segments and are in a format your computer cannot read. The format is CRF. The only thing I got to play it was Windows media player class but it had no sound. Even the camera viewing software couldn't play it.

    If recording to a NAS (Network attached storage) you can view your videos seamlessly through the camera playback software. Videos are recorded in 5 minute chunks and when writing to a NAS the system creates an XML database of the files in which the playback software uses to allow you index and seek through your entire videos instead of having to view each 5 minute segment.

    The night vision is good. High Def seems to work OK however it still can be a little grainy. I will test out on a much faster NAS this weekend. I recommend wired connection. I had a few times where my cameras lost signal for some reason. Could be due to wifi interference. There were within 40 feet of the router with only 1 wall between them.

    Just bought a 2 pack of LNC240 cameras and set them up without issue on my network. Not quite as fast as the video promo but not bad. Definitely an improvement over my Mole IP camera but so far seems a little slow on the snapshot for motion detection. I did some tests walking through the detection zones and got emails with room shots and no one in the pictures. I will agree with the other reviewer on motion sensitivity, seems a fleck of dust in the air will trigger an email. I need to fiddle some more with the settings but still happy with them so far.
    I use them for home monitoring when out of town.
    One thing that would be nice, and this is a feature with the Mole camera, is that you can write your own email message for the motion detection. This was nice because you could include the local police phone number and have it in the email if you are being notified there is a burglar in your home. With Lorex you only get a canned alert.
    I bought these for the higher resolution and it does provide a clear view of a room. Ability to listen and speak through them is nice too. Also nice that you can turn off the lights on the front and keep them a little more stealthy. Overall I am happy with the puchase, $199 for two at Costco on sale.

    Update of prev review:

    Product: LNC204 wireless network camera. (2 units)

    Pros: (see my prev review - hardware looks very good and solid)

    Cons: (see my prev review about L-View password issues) Additonally: I have now discoveredc that the "L-Player" software to view recorded files will ONLY function with devices that have at least 1024 x 768 (VGA) displays - I tried to use this software with my ASUS netbook with a 1024 x 600 display and it would not properly display the buttons to retrieve files. Interestingly, the L-View software would not work with my VGA emulation on the netbook (so when using VGA emulation I could not record) and the L-Player software would not work WITHOUT the VGA emulation - so a "hidden" requirement (unless you are computer adept) is that to fully use the camera capabilities, one must have at least VGA (1024 x 768) display resolution. I have tested this on my full-resolution PC and the minimum size of the display window is around 1024 x 730 based on capturing the screen image. So, despite what it says on the package, you MUST have VGA display resolution on your PC device. I have no way of checking on Android devices, so that is still up in the air. Like that say, "Buyer beware!"

    I was skeptical at first, easy setup, hi definition and night vision, a lot to hope for in such a small package. After setting the first camera up using my IPhone, I became a believer. It really is simple and the image is great. I've set up 4 camera in my home and feel confident while away. I do wish I could link more than four cameras but that's the limit. All in all, I'm impressed at the overall quality of these little cameras.

    I'm happy to say I now own three LNC116 camera's. I'm still learning the finer points of their capabilities and setup requirements but its been a joy so far. Its as close to "plug and play" as anything and the software is fairly intuitive. I tried two other brands and was ready to give up when I came across the Lorex product. I'm so glad I went back to the store for the final trip. One thing I strongly recommend if you decide to pursue this on a home network.... Get some cheap UPS's or its gonna get knocked down from time to time and you'll be at work reestablishing WiFi connection more than you care to be. I'm a PC user running an Apple Airport Extreme router and its been simple with the WPS WiFi setup. The cameras have an impressive image quality day and night. mine are in a widow that gets a lot of sun and they adjust beautifully through light changes.

    After reading reviews of similar products, we decided on the LNC104. Even with our older pc, it was so easy to get up and running. Once synced with our wireless router, we put it in place, tested the operation and let it go. Even though we have an alarm system, this will allow us to monitor our home when out of town if something unfortunate happens.We haven't tried to record to a memory card yet or set the alarm features, but I expect everything to operate well. Most amazingly, we could access the camera on an iphone miles away from home. We plan to get a second camera real soon.

    I purchased the Lorex LNC 104 after reviewing several wireless internet camera options online. In general, I'd say that the reviews convinced me that the " video monitoring" user community is one of the most demanding group of consumers I've experienced, ranking right up there with serious cooks who argue the subtleties of "the balance of chef's knives" and the "heat responsiveness expensive cookware".

    There is an expression that the "perfect is the enemy of the good". I was looking for a wireless camera that provided (1) a clear, sharp image, (2) was easy to set up, (3) would work dependably on my computer and on my mobile devices, and (4) could provide both daylight and nightime images that were useful and could be stored. Any other feature was extraneous to these needs, even audio monitoring.

    I discovered that with this product I got everything I wanted. Both the hardware and software work well (and dependably so far), it was pretty easy to set up, although the instructions could use another pass to avoid making assumptions about what users may know and provide a bit more clarity, and I've been pleased with the access and the images. What's more to say?

    While I recognize that user experiences may vary, I'm very happy with the quality of this product and believe I received good value for money. Now my decision is whether or not to get a second or third unit.

    PS. I'm amazed at the number of people who have the time to diss reviewers on this site. It suggests to me that there may be a couple of disgruntled employees who have too much time on their hands.

    I've been researching options for a nanny cam type setup for my 1yr old daughter and her live in nanny. Since, I don't own this lease unit, I would not be allowed to setup any type of hard wired installed camera systems, thus the search for wireless ip cameras ensued. I must say it was a little bit confusing at first trying to figure out the two installation options on the quick install document. However, for my certain network and application with all Apple Products (iPhone,iPad,MacAirBook), I realized I had to configure the wifi each time to have each camera unit get recognized and scanned into setup rather than manually typing the camera id etc and trying to do it that way just didn't seem to work. After completion for each camera totaling 4 max, I tested and found that streaming on 3G network from my iPhone was choppy and I would constantly drop the video and the cameras often disconnected on me when I was out viewing in this mode. Another problem which is quite annoying is the squealing sound coming from the iPhone when viewing the videos. Overall, the system has pretty great image quality, but the mic isn't that good. What would have been the best features is the ability to pan/tilt. Viewing from the laptop and iPad worked well using wifi connectivity and I would still recommend this system to others because it's definitely a top grade product and does serve its purpose rather well. It didn't get 5 stars due to clunky installation, choppy connectivity, and no pan/tilt futures compared to some of the competing models out there.

    I am the caregiver for my mother, who is 93 years old and lives with my family. She is handicapped physically but is able to function on her own. She also has a Life-line system. I would call home throughout the day to check on her but many times she will not answer the phone, either because she didn't hear it or she was sleeping. When this would happen, I would panic and rush home thinking the worst. I purchased 2 of the Lorex LNC 204 cameras and installed one in her bedroom and the other in her kitchen. It took only a few minutes to set up using WiFi and my iPhone. It works perfectly and I can check on her throughout the day. Using the 2way audio, I can also listen to everything going on in her room and speak to her using my iPhone & the Lorex audio system. There was no additional cost other then purchasing the cameras. No monthly fees. I also use the system to watch my children enter the house after school. I push a button and ask them "How was School?" and they look up at the camera and say hello and tell me about their day. I can monitor live video and sound from anywhere through my iPhone. I haven't been successful in using the online DDNS Lorex website yet to monitor the system but the iPhone does the job perfectly for now and gives my peace of mind. I plan on purchasing 2 more units since the program can monitor up to 4 units at one time.

    Easy set-up and decent picture quality. But, the software is cumbersome, and it is difficult to get the settings zeroed in to where you want them without a lot of testing and futzing. I could live with that, but the emailed motion alarms just seem to quit working for no reason. Not reliable enough for serious use.

    I purchased a couple of these cameras many months apart to serve as a means of surveillance for home security. Overall the cameras are not bad. Fairly easy to set up initially. The bracket has a joint that allows you to rotate the camera, but the joint gets loose very quickly. So to make up for it you either have to place the joint in one of the notches or take the camera off and wax the joint so it will stay.

    My biggest gripe, though, has been consistency. The camera comes with a CD to install a program (L-View) to view what the cameras see. There's also an app (Lorex Ping). Since setting these cameras up, I am unable to view what the cameras are seeing both on L-View and on Lorex Ping. When I go to the web configure feature, it says that the cameras are functioning, not recording. And I get e-mails when they detect motion. But I'd like to be able to see what's going on with my laptop or tablet, as it happens (if it happens), in addition to relying on getting the e-mails.

    Getting tech support regarding the above issue has been...difficult, to say the least. I called them a few hours prior to their listed closing time and was on the phone for 30 minutes before I gave up. I didn't talk to a single person. I ended up sending an e-mail and a few days later, I got a few automated responses saying I've been bumped up to have a technician handle my issue.

    Overall, the cameras, the set up, and the system itself is good, but not great. It'll do the job I'm asking it to do, but I'm not blown away.

    Pros: The set up was easy enough, sharp picture and motion.

    Cons: Dropped/disconnected

    I would be sitting at one spot using Android phone to view the cameras. I would say about 40% of the time I got many dropped including:

    "Check network" message with the wheel spinning for a minute or two, then I would get either
    "Disconnected" or a blank, dark screen.
    Reset does bring it back, but again, at one spot, not going anywhere, if I go to other functions of my phone to call, text, check e-mail ..etc... when I come back to view, at times the error message would come back again. It's really hit and miss and not knowing when it would do this.

We purchased a drop cam to start but ended up returning it when we realized you had to sign up for membership to get the type of streaming and recording we wanted, but this is much more hassle free with wife and SD card that records up to a week. I didn't give it 5 stars because I wish it would swivel and also i have to leave the app on to constantly monitor a sleeping baby which i wasn't expecting.

    I recently purchased a dual package of LOREX HD cameras model LNC204. Setup was easy and the results when using the provided free software are very impressive. It takes a bit of effort to learn all the details of setting the cameras but mastering the WEB interface made it much easier. The built in room temperature feature is a big plus especially if your planning a vacation trip during the winter season. I would definitely recommend this product because of the quality of it design and functionality. I will be looking into expanding this system in the future.

    I purchased two of these cameras from costco.com they were relatively easy to set up if you like gadgets. I'm not a techie but I am a gadget person. I am using these cameras for survellance and safety. The customer service line was very busy. Hold times approximately 45 min.; I would suggest they set up a call back que option. Upon reaching a tech they were very helpful and did not rush or condescend even with simple questions.
    So far using the settings I have been able to greatly increase the cameras functionality for my viewing and recordings. I have created schedules and alarms for recording and email notifications however this is just now finished. I'll have to wait to determine their usefulness. If only these cameras would pan/tilt and as long as recordings/alarms work as scheduled I would give them a five star rating.

    I picked up the 2 pack of the LNC204 model for a great deal (199). Excellent little cameras. I use mine with a laptop so I have no experience with a tablet or smart phone. Fairly simple to setup. Great features including e-mail alert, record to NAS, temperature alert and two-way audio - all of which can be tweaked to your own personal preference.

    My only complaint is that the infrared light is visible during night viewing but other than that all lights can be turned off for stealth mode.

    I will definitely pick up a couple more if that deal comes around again!

Shawn in Customer Service was great...walked me through changes in no time. Best feature is the new IR temp so that when away I know if my heat has possibly failed. Great product...Recommend without reservation. Great product.

    This is a great product! It is very easy to set-up and use (it requires very little technical knowledge). I am pleased with the picture quality and very pleased with the night vision capabilities of this small camera! One additional selling point for me is the free, easy to use app for IPad that allows you to connect in an additional 15 camera's.

    I would recommend this product to anyone!

    Easy setup AFTER you figure out that you have to connect the camera to a router with a WIRE and then go into the admin panel and change it to be wireless. It would have been so nice if THAT was spelled out. (minus 1 star)
    Nice features.
    Only CON is the fact that the lens is not a WIDE angle lens. To cover a small room is not possible and you can only focus on a small zone. (minus 1 star)
    Great for large rooms or areas that are 25' + in distance.

    Ordered on Dec. 02, but not shipped till 12th & delivered till just
    before Christmas, leaving little time to set up, before going out of
    town Boxing Day. Only vidio I could find on set up is young lad, trying
    to set speed record, for installing. After hundreds of email & notifications
    I finally, turned PiR off, & down to 10 sensitivity. Support had a language
    issue, on both ends, attempting to learn what abbreviations, meant.
    Reset password, on 3 cameras, but still have to use issued one to access
    settings. Other than short cord, no battery, & configuration, setup issues,
    they do work well, with good picture quality. I would & have recommended cameras
    to others. Had to cover shop door windows, to keep night traffic, from tripping the trigger. ;D
    No explanation of terminology & abbreviations, or sensitivity issues , drops a cple stars.

    Good quality and easy to get up and running. Had the camera for a week now and no issues have occurred so far. Using it as a wireless device and the setup with my Verizon FIOS router (Actiontec M1424WR model) was easy. The port forwarding app available on Lorex's site was also a very useful and establishing port forwarding was a quick straight forward process. Glad I purchased this device.

    I have had these cameras for a week now. I am very impressed with the ease of installation and the quality of the cameras. The operation of the cameras from my iPhone, iPad, and computer are very simple and quick. The sound, picture and clarity are outstanding. The feature to be able to have two way communication is impressive. I spoke to Lorex about installation on my computer and found them to be professional, courteous, and knowledgeable of the product. I rate the camera 5 stars and I also rate Lorex 5 stars. My next purchase of this type will be from Lorex.

    I found it very frustrating to use this camera. My daughter and I spent a complete afternoon trying to get it to work on wireless modem. We gave up and then I watched a utube video and got it working but it still causes our wifi to shut down and we have to do a hard reset. I liked it when it works but too much conflict with the wifi. Also when we try 2 way comm, it inly works one way. I will probably return it it and try a different make.

    This is the first product from Lorex that I have purchased. I plan to use these cameras in a condominium that I vacation at and wish to monitor.
    The reason for the low rating right now is that I have been unable to get the cameras to properly connect to the WiFi internet access available in the condo building. Until this fundamental problem is corrected I cannot offer much good news about these cameras.
    I have put in a warranty tech support ticket several days ago and still await a response.

    Stay tuned.

    Purchased the LNC204 IP camera. Tried to activate it as per instructions, but it kept saying the wrong password was being entered. Called customer support, they helped me reset the camera, then proceeded to go ahead and remotely activate my camera for me. (very helpful) I spent a couple of days playing with it and changing a few of the functions that are a available in order to tweak the camera to my personal specs. After 2 days, I have come to the conclusion what a great wireless camera this is. It has more than met my expectations. The picture is very clear, The night vision is simply amazing. It functions almost like there was a light in the room even though the room is totally dark. Impressive. The only problem I dislike is the ability to speak thru the speaker. It's speaker is so weak, that unless you are standing right next to the camera, you will be unaware that someone is speaking to you from the camera. The sound of someone talking that comes back to you from the camera however is great.. Overall, I was impressed enough to order 2 more cameras, the LNC104 versions. If you are looking for a inexpensive totally wireless camera, that is easy to use, I would highly recommend any of the IP cameras. I am a very happy customer

    Christmas purchase. QR code setup did not work for some reason. Would have been nice if it had. Resorted to second option in instructions and it worked just fine using Ethernet to get it up and running. Then I switched to wireless - no issues. I fumbled a little with other stuff but the instructions worked and set me straight. Color / picture is excellent. Every time I thought I had a problem, the instructions set me straight. Full instructions available for download - not in the box as has become the norm. You will eventually need these detailed instructions as this unit is feature rich.

    I am running high on my monthly broadband allotment but for the day I set these units up, there was no blip in the broadband usage. These are sent with a low default data rate which causes a stutter to movement on my displays and I am sure at the higher data rates these will be superb. Will try next month.

    Disappointed that they do not have app yet for my Google Nexus 7 tablet but it works fine on my Samsung Galaxy 3 phone and my Dell PC.

    I like it.

    I owned 4 of these cameras and I'm overall pleased with their performance. The quality seems to be Ok althought 8 months after 2 cameras showed a malfunction of the IR light that doesn't seem to work and I returned the cameras for repair/exchange.

    I really like ease of set up, picture quality, and security features. I didn't give this 5 stars just yet, b/c I'm still learning how to program it to record. I've noted how sensitive the motion detection is, so I've set as low as it can go. This is a very nice starter camera for home security. I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for an entry level security camera. Note, my app on Kindle Fire HD doesn't work at the moment when I select a camera. Hopefully, Lorex tech spt can help, although waiting to speak to a tech reps seems painful waiting on hold forever.

    The hardware is good, but the software is weak. The image quality is excellent in all modes, and the IR illumination in night mode works well. The AC power requirement is annoying, but I suspect it uses to much power for battery operation. An auto adapter would be nice for monitoring the driveway. The iPhone interface works reasonably well.

    The L-view software for Mac crashes frequently, and there is no option to change the video recording and snapshot directories.

    Until the software is more reliable and useful, the overall rating is a 3.

    LNC 116 needs improvements and the issues are.

    1. sends too many motion alerts, regardless of the sensitivity adjustment.

    2. Remote connection is blocked by firewall and antivirus programs.

    3.Resolution of pictures are only 640 pixels and it is not great.

No instructions included for set up camera operation on PC..had to go to Lorex site and find owners manual very complex. Change one setting and all change. Often loses connection to wireless. So far not very impressed with customer no service, contacted on numerous tries never get anyone opened a ticket nobody contacted.
    Cameras when operating work well but Lorex leaves a lot to be desired with no customer service. I think this is going back to COSTCO.

    Setup was easier the second time. Perhaps changes to settings could be viewed as they are being adjusted rather than trial and error method. Expected wider field of view. Night vision LED stays visible even when the status LED indicators are in off mode. Perhaps invisible IR LED would truly make the camera less noticeable at night.

    We've been using them for a week now and they are working very well. They were easy to set up and very convenient to change settings from remote sites and the alerts to the sensors are helpful. Right now I use them to see what our dog is up to, we find the couch in the living room disheveled. We have discovered that she barks and carries on when the mailman comes. Both the motion and sound sensors alert me to the happening and I can see her carrying on and the mailman making his delivery. When this novalty of watching her wears off I will put them into their final location watching over the entrances to my home.

    Pros
    Easy to set up, nice remove viewing app, good visual design

    Cons
    Weak wireless (I have a powerful WiFi router), often reboots when quality settings are higher than average, probably exceeds its own bandwidth and/or fills up internal memory buffer and crashes. I had to configure then with low quality settings. Very odd output video format (internally it is MPG) and timing sync is off during playback. No viewing via web, needs app or installed software.

I created a ticket with the support team to which they closed it stating it was a Level 2 issue and I should call the toll free number. I called the number and was on hold for 20 minutes waiting on a Level 1 tech who made me reiterate all the information I gave them in the original ticket they closed which he could not view. He then gave me a second ticket number and told me I would have to go back on hold for a senior level engineer.

    Disclaimer: Self proclaimed tech, as a applications developer for multiple platforms you would think setting up 3 network cameras is as easy as 1,2,3... you would be wrong. Granted my network setup at home is complex than most typical user out there but still getting the cameras work nice with my routers was a hassle.

    Bought these for great price for the type and quality of the cameras did not need to splurge on HD just yet. Needed an easy and simple solution to monitor babysitter for my 5 year old.

    Current network and setup at the time of initial setup.
    Netgear WNDR4000 with MAC restriction setup, no WEP or encryption (there was a reason for this setup, would be very boring and lengthy explanation). SSID was basically open as long as I knew the MAC address and given it access via the routers setup.

    10PM on a Saturday, kids are in bed and now have alone time to setup some security cameras, yeah!

    1st clue: the device have a sticker on the back, by FCC requirements must include the MAC address of the said network equipment utilized by the user. Which they do but here is the rub, only the LAN adapter's MAC address is provided on the sticker. Assuming that they net the LAN to their WiFi adapter this is not a big deal. Assumption wrong.

    2nd clue: the device claims it has WPS (WiFi Protected Setup) capabilities. My WNDR4000 has WPS so lets give it a go right. The device and the router were literally one(1) foot away from each other in the same room, no obstruction. The two could not pair what so ever.

    3rd clue: The manual advertises their supper cool iOS app on the AppStore that you can use to setup the device and be done with all the nonsense of networking and such. Pull out my iPhone5 with iOS7 on it, and downloaded the app. Added the device using outdated uncool QR code on the back of the device. FYI all it does is fills in the ID of the device which is also on the back sticker. After a few tries and back and forth with the settings cannot locate the camera. At this point I start questioning my IQ and my understanding of technology. Am I that old that I no longer can setup a simple IP device, do I a deal call customer service and wait for some guy to tell me I'm holding it wrong? No, I refuse to give up.

    Status Update: 2AM and still can't setup one camera via all WiFi possible solution, let alone 2 more.

    4th clue: after exhorting all WiFi setup methods, LAN must work, or else. And by gosh it does. But I bough a wireless, capable device(s). key word: WiFi. Instructions point me to installing their L-View software which in turn points me to web interface of the device's settings, finally getting somewhere. Note under info section it still shows only the LAN MAC address. not very useful to me as I need the WiFi adapters MAC address to add it to the Access List. So what to do at this point? I disable the MAC restrictions on my router and my SSID is now exposed to any device to join if they desire. I figured who will be hacking me at 3AM right. So under network setting in the web interface of the device i selected None for security mode under the sub section for WiFi settings. Run the WiFi test as the option after saving all setting. "Test failed"

    To make the long story short, I had to enable WPA(2)-PSK with AES encryption only then my cameras started to join my network and functioning. At this point web interface and my router are reporting the WiFi MAC address. Why not just give it to me in the first place!

    What should have taken no more then 2 min or under 1 if you watch the YouTube guide of setting this camera up. it took me well over 6h to figure out the correct settings that would work for me to utilize these devices. Note: WPS still did not work. iOS app now recognizes the devices, poor layout of the app and crashes most of the time. I like the layout of the iPad app better but still needs work. Why not have a universal binary?

    Good news, I ran in to character limit on the review textbox!

    Nov 2013. This camera is everything I'd hoped it would be. The camera provides continuous streaming video over the internet or WiFi. You can hook up a maximum of 4 IP Cameras in this configuration. I can access any camera on my home PC, iPhone or Android devices. The cameras can also be configured from any of these devices.

    Having no familiarity with the device or LorexTechnolgies, the installation went fairly well. I did have a couple hiccups when pairing with my iPhone and Android, but they were due to my unfamiliarity and were easily corrected. The cameras were also easy to mount and can be mounted almost anywhere and in any position. I liked the 2-Pack solution so well, I purchased a second pair.

    You can no only view streaming video anywhere, you can also record video on a mini-SD card (not included) up to 32BG. It can be set to record continuous and once full, will simple record over old tracks.

    It was just the solution I had been looking for.

    A great inexpensive, reliable, easy to set up security system that works well on Android and Windows 8.1. Motion sensor sensitivity is very good so you may need to turn it down as sunshine coming in windows can trigger it.

    I currently own 4 of the LNC-104 IP camera and for most part are doing their job. I have noticed that they put a heavy load on the Wireless Router.

    For a trouble free installation one most perform a site survey before permanently installing these cameras. Upgrading software sometimes messes your configuration.

    I've had one LNC104 for a month or so and just ordered two more. I access the cameras with my iPhone, my MacPro, and my MacBookAir. On the road it is great to be able to see that all is well. I now have all the entrances to my home covered. I've noticed that if you change the scene that the camera is looking at, while the alarm is set, you get lots of false alarm; it is ok when you are on your local network because you can either re-boot or reset the camera. I had my front door open while I set the alarms on my Living Room camera while sitting on the porch getting ready to leave. I should have had the door closed like it would be after I left, but I messed up. The first day, I got a lot of false alarms, but they are diminishing each day that I'm gone. Next time I know better. The Cameras work well day and night. For the price and no monthly fee, I consider the 3 cameras a great investment. I look for improvements to the beta monitoring software.

    This camera exceeded my expectations. Allows me to monitor my home from my MacBook Air, iPhone, and iPad while I am away. The Mac software is beta and is adequate; I trust it will improve over time.

    I bought these for my office. They work great--especially for the price. Clear picture in light and dark. I thought they were very easy to set up, even with my password protected wireless internet. I would recommend this product.

    This is my third camera of this kind. Pretty stable and self sufficient. If you have a NAS drive, it will be very easy to set the camera up to store days worth of surveillance videos on it.

    Still undecided on the cameras. The setup was fairly easy, however one of the two cameras purchased keeps dropping the wifi signal. I moved the camera for a better line of sight with the router but the signal still occasionally drops. The second camera works fine.

    Camera hardware is very good. Good quality of video. Very easy setup for use with iPad and my wifes iPhone. As long as your internet speed is good and yu have an N wireless router you get clear video with good range with these cameras.

    The LView software for use with the PC is poorly made. Tiny icons make it hard to select commands. It is not intuitive. There is no scheduled recording choice with the PC software. I eventually figured out that you can tell each camera to record, on a schedule or event, to the Public folder of your Windows PC or to a NAS. But the instructions were no help on figuring this out.

    So I rate this as a four out of five,for good hardware but not so good software or instructions.

    I currently own two of the Lorex LNC101 security cameras which I purchased for a vacation home in NH. Both are registered as LWR-9102013-00233 and LWR-28102013-00200
    Overall I think they are a good value, and work reasonably well for my intended purpose. I wanted internet connectivity so I can veiw things while I am not at the residence and this camera provides that capability. The wireless capability made them easy to install and they work well with my Actiontec router. I purchased them due to the built in email alert system which they provide so I am automatically notified when the view changes on site. I purchased one for testing and liked it well enough that I got a second for the other floor of the home.

    Unfortunately my home has a modest amount of South facing glass. The Lorex manual mentions that the motion detection algorithm is sensitive to changes in ambient light, and in my case this results in a lot of false motion detections and my email in box fills up with these on a day with mixed sun and clouds if motion detection is enabled. The solution for me appears to be to just use PIR (heat sensitive detections). This seems to work well in NH, although Lorex warns it is not so reliable in warmer climates.

    The unit also has a micro SD slot which I populated so I can keep permanent recordings of events when there is a motion or heat sensitive detection. One can play these SD recording back over the internet from a remote location for review which is a nice feature. It would be even nicer if one could save these recordings to a local computer via the internet, but that does not appear to be an option yet. If you want to save an SD recording you have to physically remove the SD chip and insert it in a computer to copy its video content. Curiously one can remotely record video (ie save to a local drive) from selected cameras interactively via the internet, but you can only view the SD card video interactively over the internet.

    The quality of the default video is not great, but I have not taken the time to play with all the setup options available. Possibly this could be improved via configuration. Of interest the images received in email alerts seem to be clearer than the video. Possibly it buffers them a little better.

    It is disappointing that the video doesn't seem to be in a more standard format. I am searching for a utility that can convert the video output from L-View to something that will generically play on a Windows system. I've seen some internet discussion
    about this and its supposed to be MPEG compatible. It looks like the sourceforge ffmpeg project may do what I desire, but more testing is required.

    On my wish list would be the ability to remotely adjust the configuration parameters. I understand this to be a potential security risk, but my router does not support port forwarding I have to be on the local network to configure the cameras. If I don't get the setup right before leaving the house I am stuck with the results until I return to the local network.

    My biggest disappointment with this system is that I have had no success with Lorex technical support. They have a nice ticket system where they track your requests, but the information they provide left a lot to be desired in my case. Their L-View and L-Play programs would not run on my Windows XP machine, I got a Windows NetFramework error message that the main program could not be found. As a programmer I researched this and ran Microsoft's NetFramework verification tool. It told my my system was correctly installed. Although I reported this to Lorex their technical support told me I must have a bad NetFramework installation. Ultimately I found one needs version 2.0 of Netframework installed, and my system only had the later version 4.0 installed. After installing version 2.0 the Lorex program ran, but no one at Lorex thought to suggest this.

    I purchased two Lorex Live Ping cameras from Costco. I have been amazed at the capabilities of these cameras. Not only does the camera notify your Smart phone of motion or sounds, it gives you the ability to talk over the camera connection when a speaker is added using your smart phone. You can also trigger an alarm, take a picture or video with the camera and look at recent history by recording on an SD card and seeing the recording on your smart phone. The camera can also be setup to take a picture caused by motion or sound and email the picture to you. Picture quality is good.

    The cameras are easy to connect to your WIFI but mastering all the features does take some time. I?m glad I purchased the Live ping cameras

    Well, I love the picture quality! Totally awesome, compared to our other cameras. Very nice to go to town with ease and able to check on things while I am out and about! A big plus! Have to admit, it was a challenge to set up, but we got it figured out after my son was on hold for 30 minutes for help to Lorex and never got to speak with a tech! Think they need to change their customer service status. It would make customers a little more happier in the set up!

    What I recommend for lorex technology to do, is to mention how much upload power you need to run more then one camera off of wi-fi! We are 256k and can only run one. I can't find that information anywhere on their website. Our DSL service will be bumped up to 512K around the end of the month or else I'd have to send these cameras back. We are fortunate to have DSL out in the country, so figured we'd be okay with wi-fi off of our router. But, we have a smart TV, no dish and use Netflix a lot, plus 3 laptops. So we multi task back and forth, to make it worth our while waiting patiently for the new upgrade of DSL!

    At first with the set up, it kept kicking my smart phone off, but then we were trying to hook up two cameras. In the process, I am thinking I don't want a IPhone, as I don't like the small screen!. Then when we tried just one camera, there was no problem. Even works very well on my ipad! From town yesterday, was fantastic!

    I read a lot of complaints about being kicked off of your smart phones. The problem is, you need to be smarter then the phone and question what your upload speed is from your wi-fi!

    I highly recommend these quality cameras! :) They are a plus!

    Initial setup was OK when plugging into the LAN. Wireless function does not work at all. Unable to connect using phone or iPad to view remotely. After 6 months of use the cameras both crash and reboot about 1 time each 10 to 15 minutes. Lorex technical support takes an excessive amount of time to sign up for, asking you all kinds of personal information they have no reason to know, only to not five any support anyway. The only message I got back said that my question had been elevated to technical support staff, and I have not heard from them. I would highly recommend to avoid the Lorex Ping because they don't work as stated and after only 6 months they are crashing all the time.

    I love the idea, and it would have been perfect if the motion detector did not go off and send me 600 e-mail notification for nothing moving. If this was working, I would have kept it. I may have got a lemon, but I am not daring enough to try again. I looked for another IP camera, but I cant find one with excellent reviews for $150 or less that does everything is says it will do. Lorex fix this and you got a awesome camera.

    Bought camera to watch my 3 dogs while I was on vacation. Set up was very easy. Could us the Wi-Fi connection but my Wi-Fi signal for where I put the camera was not very strong so I wired the camera to my modem. Watched though my I-Phone and never had any problem with connecting to the camera. Since my vacation I now use the camera every day to watch my dogs while I am at work. This was the best purchase I have made this year. I love it.

    After setting up a home security system and dealing with the frustrations, this was remarkably easy. It actually was as simple as the demo video on Amazon. Quickly had it up and running on my iPad, iTouch and MacBook Air. The video quality is mediocre but it's not like it was advertised to be any better so I'm satisfied. I bought this to keep track of our pets while gone and even the speaker worked well although I didn't realize at first you had to toggle the speaker button to talk and then listen. Bought it on the deal of the day special although I think the lower price was really more reasonable than the every day price. That's really the only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5.

    It took a little work to get it up and running wirelessly but once up, it works great! Go to the Lorex website and watch the setup video, the instructions in the box aren't clear, hence the video recommendation. I'm using this to watch my dogs while I'm at work, I'd like to get a couple of more to place around the house but will wait until it goes on sale again.

    I mean it works but it it isn't fun. The video is acceptable at best but easily swings into poor. The iphone app connects well but even after troubleshooting it shows the top half of the video with a repeating pattern down the bottom half or 2/3rds. On my computer it streams fine so this seems to be iphone related.

Set up is simple, customer support was superb when I needed it, and we can view all cameras at once on multiple phones/pc's. With the Zyxel if my wife was viewing it on her phone I was unable to log in. Great product.

    Pros:
    - The most easy set up CCTV camera which I've ever used compared to wire 1080p professional PoE IP camera.
    - No need a NVR or DVR to record
    - You can record by inserting into camera an micro SD up to 32 GB
    - Or you can configure the HDD in your PC or laptop.
    - Good SW in 2013 Awarded the 2013 CES.
    - It can continuously monitor and motion email alert.
    - Easy email alert setup. Just enter the its IP address of camera on L-View by moving the mouse cursor over the Autosearch's Camera. it will appear the IP such as 192.168.1.68. If this is the IP of your camera in your local router, then enter this into your explorer browser Chrome or MS explorer; Enter the Admin for the user and leave the password blank, then can go to the camera's schedule , then email alert with only your email address. It will take the snap shot and send to your email if there is a motion detected.
    - Good audio for monitoring
    - Good clear Blk/wht picture when in totally dark. The Infrared emitter turns on good visibility up to 20 ft, but human eyes (wavelength 850 nm) cannot see this IR light at night. We can see the human face in a totally dark room at night.

    Just follow the quick set up instruction, wireless can be easily setup

    Cons: only 480 TV line resolution but with compress video format H.264 video compression technology which would help better images.
    - Sometimes It delays 5 to 10 second sometimes due to the DLS speed of the monitor place and where you remote using L-view from anywhere.
    - As most of most of wireless camera suffer many lower frame per picture < 30 fps, so the motion is lagging. This is the trade of a wireless camera (without complication in connection CAT5 cable from router to camera of a CAT5 Ethernet cable needed for a wire camera). It certainly needs an nearby AC outlet to power the wireless camera.
    - Not a wide angle camera. The view angle may be about 70 degree. It do not have this spec such 6mm or 9mm lense

    Have fund for this budget wireless camera (at Costco for only $200 for a pair in Oct 2013)

    I rate the camera itself 5 stars and the software 3 stars at this point. The camera was very easy to set up and use; read the directions before beginning; the setup video was especially useful.

    I've been looking for a system that could be monitored from my iPhone and iPad and didn't require a monthly fee. The LNC 104 fills the bill. I installed one as a trial and plan to order two more. It works well day and night. It sends e-mails when the alarms are set. I haven't had any false alarms (I don't have any pets). The SD card recording works as advertised. I have 32 GB SD card installed; at my settings it uses about 1GB per day so I can get over two weeks on one card. I've watched the recorded video on my Mac's and my iPhone.

    I have the L-View software installed on two Macs and have the Ping App installed on my iPhone and iPad; all work fine.

    The Mac software is a beta and there are a couple of things that I haven't figured out how to do yet. I trust the software will continue to improve.

    I bought this camera after 2 baby cams didn't carry enough range in my condo. Our Chicago condo has a lot of walls so, even though the range is 450 ft, I can't get reception down the hall. So I got this IP camera to use over the network. It works beautifully. I had a little trouble finding my network but the setup was not bad.

    Pro:
    Program turns on quickly so you can see what's happening.
    Image is reasonable in light and darkness
    Camera is easy to mount
    Easy to install on multiple iPhones so wife and I can both keep an eye
    Can be viewed remotely from Lorex site
    iPhone / iPad program is free

    Cons:
    Picture reasonable but not the best on the market
    Can't use iPhone or iPad and keep program running in background ( but can set up alerts for sound and motion)

    Overall a great camera for the money. And I plan to use it for security after kids grow up.

    Installed the camera out of the box, connected to my iPhone, and went traveling. It was easy and worked well with the exception that I didn't take the time to set the motion and sound sensitivity before I left and the ping software pushed notifications to my phone when lighting conditions changed or heavy vehicles drove by, Fixed that, and now it works like a charm. My highest recommendation for someone who wants to keep an eye on things while away from home.

    Yes, the set up is easy but the end result less than satisfactory. The iPhone app has a very nice feature of detecting both motion and sound (Why is the sound function not available to initiate emails?). Biggest drawback is that the notifications sent to the iPhone are NOT able to be scheduled. So, if you use this in a business, you will get notifications all day long that you are open, instead of just at night as would be useful.
    Another thing -- tech support is both rude and worthless. When I asked about the difference between "mobile" and "normal" streaming option, they said that, since it wasn't in the manual, they didn't know about it. Well, if it WAS in the manual, I wouldn't have called. Also, why doesn't the email and iphone notification use the given name of the camera instead of the much-less-informative camera number??

    I bouth a 2 pack of the LPN-104 cameras. One never worked in black and white and the sensitivity it too high for e-mail alerts. I called has a very bad experience with the first Tech I reached. He asked me my address three times and appeared to have poor english speaking and understaning skills. He instructed me to do specific checks that dis not make any sense so I asked for a supervisor and hung up due to the call wait time being too long. I sent an e-mail request for a CB from a supervisor and to my surprise they called me back the very next day and we discussed my issues and they are sending me a replacement camera. He did not know whether the replacement camera is going to be new or refurbished. The original camera was brand new just out of the box. I will continue my evaluation after I get the replacement. It is too soon to rate the camera so the rating is strictly on the service so far. We'll see how it goes?

I would however suggest that on the Lorex Homepage that they let people know where you go if you have a MAC operating system as that was one of the main issues I had and needed the call for, but all the package information only leads you to the main Lorex page and then nothing else.. and if you put in the search box MAC it still doesn't help.. only by having to call was I able to get to the right page.

    I must admit that I was very surprised regarding the product, the workmanship and the performance of the Lorex Ping camera. After buying, trying, and returning two other cameras before settling in on the Ping, I was 'ho-hum' in anticipation of getting yet another camera and expected the worst. But I sure was in for a surprise. The Lorex Ping turned out to be the PERFECT solution to the vandalism of my vehicle on the company parking lot. Sequestered on a window ledge, peering out onto my parking space, the camera lies in waiting, ever so sure that it will nab the culprits doing nuisance pranks to my car. Sooner or later--it is only a matter of time--I will catch my perpetrators and exact due punishment on them. Not only does the camera meet my expectations, but it far exceeds them! This powerful little camera is perfect for the task and even supersedes it. I glance from time to time in a back office, observing the parking space in real time, knowing confidently that if I don't catch these nuisance-doers directly, the camera surely will in time. I am so excited by the performance of this camera, that Lorex will be my first choice in any further surveillance needs I may have.

    Lorex Live Ping LNC-104 It Works!



    Lorex Live Ping LNC-104 I do not understand why all the bad reviews. Probably problems with their home network. I have four of the LNC-104 cams and it was

    easy to set up. I have all on my Android v3.2 smartphone, easy peasy I have L-View (Lorex, free software) on my laptops (Win XP Pro) and can view the cams anywhere I have WiFi access. I have decent data rates (best on smartphone). I can talk into my smartphone and can hear excellent quality sound at the LNC-104 with my optional speaker plugged in. Cam resolution (640x480 max) and data rate are settable. This is a trade off between data rate and resolution since it is going over the LAN and internet but I have a 1GB LAN so locally it is fast. That is a lot of data for four cams but my LAN supports it. You can view four cams at once with L-View but only one at a time on the smartphone. Wish these were outdoors cams. But with a little thought I got the cams to work through the windows for both day and night vision. Night vision is excellent. Day vision color pops on (640x480 res max) at sunrise and is very good until dark when B&W night vision takes over. The documentation could be better regarding setting up FTP and NAS recording. I used WPS on my router to connect. Two button pushes for each cam and I was connected. Amazing!

    Lorex Network Camera



    This camera provides an excellent view in normal daylight and a surprising good view in reduced or dark conditions. It set up quickly and easily on my iPhone 5. Lorex's instructions for use with an Apple computer / MacBook need updating / correctling because they refer to "right clicking" and Macs don't have a right click mouse button.

    Installs quickly and easily.

    Support is awful. Level one techs don't know the product and you must wait on hold for hours. Level two techs take even longer to get to. Level three guy was great but I can't seem to get back to him.

    Unresolved issues:
    1) SD record has a mind of its own as to when its wants to work
    2) Android App wont turn notifications on and off
    3) Unit is too sensitive on "motion". Support had me turn it off and use PIR (temp sensor)

    Intial setup:

    It took about a hour to set up 2 cameras. The instructions are clear but in the end its hit and miss getting the cameras on the wifi. Once they finally got online it was good to go.

    My issue why I have it 3 stars is the iPhone app. It's not that great. I wish it was more user friendly like swiping between cameras instead of closing a camera and opening the other. I would love if the camera view was actually live on the home screen. Instead it shows the last stillimage from the last time you were on and you have to open the camera to connect live. Also the last couple days its been fine but the first couple days it wouldn't always connect. So I was unable to view the live feed at all.

    My other issue right now is the email notifications. I really need these to send me an email when people come home via motion detector and who's coming in and out. That has stopped working altogether. I called Lorex and they want me to basically reset the cameras an start from the beginning. I haven't done it as yet and actually need to call them back and ask if that means I have to go trough the whole wifi connection process again. When it was working it was great. Maybe a little annoying every time to get a message when the dog walks by or the kids are playing but I can adjust the cameras to show just door views for my purpose if need be.

    The good:
    It has great clarity I think for a camera especially viewing it on my laptop. The app is good too but obviously smaller viewing area.
    It has good options when they work for email notification, alarms and even two way voice if you add an external speaker.
    It was an easy set up if only a little wonky. The directions where clear but confusing on the last couple steps.


    Bottom line it has a couple glitches to work out but hopefully I can get the email notifications worked out then ill be apt to up my rating to 4. I just worry that for what I need it for is when I go away and for monitoring my home alone teen it stops working and I'm a million miles away and can't fix it. Crossing fingers!

    Pros: picture quality great, night vision is great, price was not bad.




    Cons: should have thrown in the sd cards., would have been nice if there was an on off button, on the camera itself. since if i am home alone., i don't need these cameras running., could have been a bit cheaper in price.



     




    I needed a camera to monitor various rooms inside my house. During the day and night work excellent. The quality at night is way way much better then I would have imagined. Would have been nice if cameras could go through windows but they can't. Cameras for outside are much different and have to be put outside. Nonetheless, the picture quality of these cameras are great once you get them installed. I have had to call customer service about three times and they were wonderful. I have both cameras running. I think they should have added the SD cards to the purchase, since they are made a dime a dozen, but that was not the case. So I bought the MINI SD cards....32g and now I am set. Picture quality is great.

    I bought a 2-pack from costco.com to use a securtiy system in our house when were are travelling and the house is empty. After reading through the Lorex web site it seemed like it would do what we needed. So I ordered as set.

    Getting the cameras to work and setting up the ddns was tedious and the software seems a little rough (beta like) but once I got thru it all it works very well. I can receive alarms and view the cameras on my Galaxy 3 phone. Just what I wanted to have.

    I set up the two cameras in the front room, and the back hallway of the house. This will detect anyone who would enter the house. I set the alarm for email and adjusted the sensitivity to 5 to reduce the number of false alarms.

    I connected a pair of inexpensive speakers to the system to support the alarm function, and it works well. The alarm sound will probably frighten an intruder away.

    I turned off the LEDs to put the cameras in stealth mode.

    Bottom line, the system works, but I have a couple of rants to vent.

    1-I thought the recording could be done on a NAS device. A the software appears to support recording to a NAS. But after fighting it for a long time I went to the lorex site and it appears that the ping camera doesn't support NAS recording! This should be made clear in the set up software.

    2- there is a need for a web viewer so that you could access your cameras without the use of a smart phone. It this exists I can't find it.

    Set up was easy. Buggy with the IOS platform. The big issues is only works well if you have upload speed greater then 5. So if you have DSL you will get a jerky picture. My biggest issue, if you record to an IOS devise, there is NO way to upload the file to an hard drive. Hard if you need to use it down the road.

    The camera wont record, and I can't set up the email alert function. I've tried contacting tech support, but they leave me on hold for at least 30 minutes, or even disconnect my call! I have attempted to call them 3 times, and have still not spoken to someone, who can tell me why it's not working, or even fix it! Otherwise, it appears that the picture quality looks pretty good-during the day. I have not been able to test it during darkness. Good-luck with your purchase.

    I purchased this camera to monitor a vacation house. I installed the camera 3 weeks ago and have been very pleased overall. The camera has remained connected to the wifi which is a relief as I had read some reviews where that was an issue.

    The night vision and audio have worked very well. The only issue I have is that the audio often doesn't work on my iPhone while it always works on the iPad. Also, after about two days I stopped receiving push alerts when the camera sounded an alarm - this maybe due to operator error on my part, however.

    If the camera continues to perform like it has, my plan is to purchase and install at least one more.

    I work for a company that installs security products including surveillance. We sell products that are much more expensive and difficult to set up than this product. That being said, the type of products I install would be overkill for home use. I found this product and installed 2 of the cameras in my home. I think that the resolution is not great, but it is OK. The features are pretty nice and you can customize as little or as much as you like. They are definitely plug and play and should be very easy for an inexperienced user. I was able to easily configure them to store both on SD cards and on a NAS device. I wish the enable/disable for motion alarms was a little quicker to turn on and off, but none of these issues are deal-breakers and I would recommend this product to anyone for home or small business use.

    This is an nice little camera, of good quality and with a good picture. It's too bad that the set up is quite difficult even though the videos make it appear quite simple. If you call customer service, you will wait forever only to learn that they are absolutely useless. I would rate it higher if the review was based only on the camera.

    This camera really works great! I got this so I could check in on my dogs at home. It works fantastic. There are many variables that you can set for it to alert you. Motion or inferred. You can set up schedules so that it wont e mail you pictures if it sees movement during a time that you know someone will be there. So for the set up. It was not quite as easy as I would have liked but really close. I bet I had it working in under 5 minutes. I could not get the wireless set up to work so I set it up wired and then it worked fine on the wireless system. This could also just be me but I am OK with most computer stuff. I enjoy being able to check on my girls during the day an this is a great camera. I do hope to get more in the future

    We are fostering a dog that has a severe case of separation anxiety. We purchased 3 of these cameras to help keep an eye on her and try to get her adjusted to being alone in small increments. we purchased these because of the ability to have an app on our phone that we could watch her and know when we need to get back. The cameras work great, we're very easy to set up, however the app has been a let down. Its buggy, sometimes has no sound, sometimes it says "can't find camera". But if you look at the cameras on our laptop they are fine. So its definitely the app. I have 3G my huband has a 4G phone, and we both experience the same issues at the same time, in different parts of the state. We have also even seen these errors while on wifi. Overall, we are glad we have them, but really wish the app was better. If you hook up a. speaker to 1 of the cameras you can also talk through it, which is nice for us to be able to talk to her when she's getting really upset, it usually stops her for the moment. Also amazone was cheaper than best buy.. who wanted $300 for 2 cameras, amazon allowed you to buy singles for $120, much cheaper than best buy!

    Works great, easy to use, I would have given it 5 stars, but the base that it sits on is not tight and it will not stand up well in it's own so it has to be propped up next to something (very annoying) or it will fall over. If you were going to used this bolted somewhere there would be no issues. Careful if you use the email setting with motion, I recommend setting up an address just for the webcam as it will send you a notice EVERY time something moves (depending on your sensitivity) and it can overwhelm your email. I purchased this because I have a preteen who comes home after school for an hour before everyone else and I wanted to know when she got home. (She calls, but this lets me know the minute she walks in the door). Works great, recommend, but hope they fix that base.

    The best way to review this product is to simply list the pros and cons. I've addressed all the features that the manufacturer used to promote this product.



    Pros & Cons:



    1. You can easily record, play, and share. In addition, you are able to record directly to the camera, your smartphone, tablet, PC or Mac. This manufacturer claim is not an overstatement



    2. Dual motion detection. Advanced audio & motion sensors with smart video motion detection. This is true. It has great audio.



    3. You are able to see four camera views if you have four different cameras. I thought the view was a bit narrow. The camera coverage is limited. It should be made to cover a wider range of view.



    4 Quick setup - Setup was quick and easy.



    5. Activate your camera by simply scanning a QR code with your smartphone or tablet - The activation worked seamlessly.



    6. It would have been nice if the camera included a zoom view. The software has an option for tilt and zoom, but the camera is not able to perform this task.



    7. The software interface looks outdated.

    This is my second Lorex product, first being a wireless camera setup, that served me well,

    but was time for an upgrade. My order was delivered last week and I finished installation over the weekend. Very pleased with this product and detailed configuration settings, great picture clarity. One thing that would be useful is a protective cap for the Ethernet tips, the connectors can get damaged if threaded through concrete holes, but I simply covered them with duct tape, worked well. No problems with remote setup on PC, I manually configured the Bell 2Wire modem's application support, works smoothly. One thing I wouldn't mind is a volume control on the audio alarm, I set up the motion sensor and when it goes off I find it rather loud, perhaps there is a setting I haven't noticed? Just one other issue, I have motion detection enabled, and on very low settings it gets triggered on shadow movements from the surrounding trees' leaves blowing. At night, the bugs flying around near the camera are worse for triggering the sensors off, I have the sensitivity at second level from the bottom, and I have selected the trigger areas. Perhaps a size setting for motion? So that small objects don't set motion off. Also I wouldn't mind Quick menu through the remote.


    Over all I'm very pleased with this purchase

    Pros: easy to setup, clear night time video feed, easy viewing on portable devices and computers





    Excellent cameras. I got these to keep an eye on the cleaners as they work while I am away. The cameras were easy enough to setup if you follow the four setup steps on the instruction page. Just connect the power, wait for the red LED to stabilize and then connect via WPS.


    I was instantly able to watch the videos on my iPhone through the Lorex app. The app allows you to scan a QR code on the back of the camera to instantly register it, which I think is great given that the other option is to manually type a 9 digit camera ID number.

    I also installed Lorex's L-View on my laptop and it works great too. I did not try accessing the cameras through the web-URL so can't comment on that. Night time video quality exceeded my expectations. Although it displays in grey scale, the feed was crispy clear. I am using these cameras with Netgear's N900 router with a 20 Mbps internet connection, so for those who are experiencing poor night time video quality, see if the router/internet speed is the issue. Overall, I love these cameras and will recommend them to anyone who wants a decent home surveillance system

    I ordered mine from a big warehouse store, not amazon, but the product is excellent. I can drive all over town and keep connected to the cameras in my house via my cell phone flawlessly!. It works MUCH better than I thought it would and the only installation you have to do is simply put it where you want it and plug it in. I am so impressed. The iPhone app works great on an iPhone 5 an iOS 6.1.1.



    I really think the people who could not get it to work must be completely inept with computers, because it took all of a half hour including installation time. Set it, and forget it, lol.



    That being said, for the same price as 4 of these cameras you could get a 16 channel system with better resolution cameras and a 1TB DVR. However, the key to this system is the fact that it is wireless and you can still view it from anywhere you have a cell phone.



    Pretty amazing really.



    The one criticism I will give it is the viewing angle. The amount of space that you can actually see is very small. Don't expect to get 1 camera and view an entire room. You'll get 1 camera and view 1-2 corners of a room.

    Lorex's LNC104 Wireless Network Camera is an excellent way to have "peace of mine" about your house, children or workplace no matter where you are. Since i have Apple computers, it involved downloading software to get it to work on my computer, but I found it easy to set-up by hooking-it-up first using CAT5 cable, then going wireless. The iPhone app allows you to easily view what is going on anywhere you have 3G or better reception, and you can easily record what is happening with the click of a button.



    The infrared light allows you to see in absolutely total darkness, and the micro memory allows you to record what is happening even if the wired or wireless connectivity goes out.



    I gave it only four stars because it did involve downloading software to get it to operate, and once you download it, you really have to "tweak" it to get it to work on the WiFi.

Camera set up was easy and installed quickly on my window based computer, both Vista 32 bit/Windows 7 64 bit and my older Linksys 54G WiFi router. Played around with the settings before leaving. All can be programmed for e-mail alerts and video trigger to be recorded to SD card on cameras or computers hard drive. Only negative here is only one camera on the network can be armed for the alert e-mail and video triggers. ( you can arm both but only one works) I was able to monitor the system from my android tablet with the Lorex app. which worked well. Also was able to monitor camera through web based ip address through windows explorer. Each camera has separate ip address. Video quality during day was good, mostly clear and bright. Note: if set by window where sunlight directly comes in there is going to be some washout. Definitely do not point these directly out a window as it will wash the video completely. Night vision was viewable but fuzzy. (This could be my routers fault not being a super strong connection plus the added quality of the infrared camera ability. All in all I am happy with the purchase for my application.

    I grow wary of certain reviews I see of products. I must say for all those who had issues setting up this camera "please insert brain before use". Works as prescribed. Motion sensor, PIR sensor, night vision, email notification and clear as day visual.



    Got this baby after an attempt to break into my home. Let them try now the authorities will be on them before they know it.

    Excellent camera that can be used as a stand alone or in a multi unit setup. Extremely easy set-up when using the optional WPS button found on most new routers, however that process becomes less clear when using a router without WPS. The issue then becomes configuring the camera for both admin and network purposes. Here the instructions could be better written so for example... the user easily understands that the setup on line 6, page 22 of the instruction manual is asking for the WIFI password/passphrase used to authenticate to the router.Additionally, The iPhone app seems to have issues connecting from outside networks, and it continues to search for the camera without connecting. When using the ipad it seems to easily connect where the iphone cannot




    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Fairly easy to set up and use. Best feature is that you don't need a third party to host and forward the transmission of images. Nightime viewing can be problematic, but daytime viewing is excellent, and you can hear what is going on, as well as see. This is my third surveillance camera, from three different manufacturers (the other two were Linksys and Trendnet). This is the best, by far. Can view images on my IPhone.

    great connection but needs better color


    I am a professional digitial camera expert, Got this unit to test out for Amazon to connect to Kindle HD FIRE units. It works just fine with current sideloaded app.



    I could not get it to work with Windows XP SP3 but it works fine with Win7. Tech Support says it should work with XP and we are tracing down what is the problem.



    I have done several IPcam in the past....it was a nightmare getting all the parts in the router connected. This PING came up immediately and worked fine. Many KUDOS on getting a simple interface that my grandmother could use.



    My reason for not 5 stars is that color whitebalance is wrong. Indoor pictures are too green. Lorex needs a better illumination estimation algorithm that gives a better guess at the lighting used in the scene. I tried "indoor" and "Outdoor" and "indoor+outdoor" but none of them worked. I am hoping they will do a little more tuning and get "reasonable color" into their product. Amazed that units second camera (the IR lens) works so well in the dark. A great little product for people who want to "see what's happening at home".

    Amazing Quality, Useful and Affordable Product Limited Only by Imagination



    Notwithstanding the excellent video explanation for installing the Lorex LNC104 wireless network camera, I found the Quick Starting Guide and software CD more than adequate for installing the camera, connecting it to my Toshiba laptop, my Android Cellular Phone and my wife's iphone.



    This product is compatible with either Mac or PC users as long as they meet the prerequisite software requirements.



    I procrastinated because I thought this would be a difficult product to install; however, to my surprise it was very easy and I am so happy to have this useful product.



    It allows users to watch and/or record multiple locations in color day or night--home, office, vacation property, babies, pets and anywhere else that up to four camera's are installed.



    It is absolutely amazing that my wife and I can see who is at our front door while we are at home, work or anywhere else we have computer or cell phone reception. The product's use is limited only by the user's imagination.



    I have positioned the camera to monitor who is at my front door, driveway or front yard; however, I could also install a camera in the basement, on the main floor or upstairs or anywhere else that my dlink Wi-Fi reception is available.



    This is a quality security camera with infrared LED (night vision), the ability to detect motion by tracking body heat, has external speaker audio capability and supports MicroSD cards up to a maximum size of 32GB.



    The external speaker and MicroSD cards are not included with this product; however, I ordered a 32GB scandisk and X-Mini II Capsule Speaker on amazon.com for total cost of $41.22.



    I wholeheartedly recommend this affordable quality product to those who can benefit from its many applications.



    Enjoy!

    Good net cam, mediocre software



    This good basic network camera. It is compact and has good daytime and night vision picture quality. It has a microphone and a speaker can be attached for two-way communication. It has a Micro SD-Card slot that allows it to record on its own; you can also record to your hard disk or a Network Attached Storage device. It can connect to your network by ethernet and Wifi. Apple routers do not support WPS (WiFi Protected Setup), so you need to use the manual setup instructions if you use an Airport or Time Capsule. I found it no more difficult to set up on my Apple Airport-based network than any other network camera. Once you have the camera installed, a QR Code on the back of the camera an be used to to configure the client software on your iPhone or iPad.



    A detailed user manual, Mac-specific instructions, and Mac client software are all available on the Lorex support site.



    Where the LNC 104 fails to measure up is in software:



    -iOS iPad. The basic functionality of the iPad version is OK. There are a couple or problems areas for me, however. The Lorex iPad software only works in landscape mode. This is a pet peeve of mine; the only time I ever voluntarily use my iPad in landscape mode is when I'm watching a long-form video like a movie or TV show. The Lorex software prevents your iPad from going to sleep; if you walk away from it while it is running (it does not even need to be connected to a camera), it will drain your battery. There are rudimentary playback controls for clips recorded on your iPad, but none for clips played from the camera's SD card. There is no way to export clips into a more useful format.

    While I was writing this review, both my iPhone 4S and iPad 3 lost the ability to connect to the cam (at the same time). The desktop client, the web, and my iPad 1 all continued to work. The iPad 3 and iPhone 4S had to be re-started to regain the ability to connect to the cam.



    -iOS iPhone. The iPhone app has the same functionality and issues as the iPad version except that it works in landscape or portrait mode and it needs to be connected to the cam before it overrides the system's effort to go into sleep mode and drains your battery. The iPhone version does have the ability to convert recordings made on the phone to .avi format files, but how this is done and how the resulting files can be accessed by other apps is not apparent. The user manual says only: "...you can...also convert the video files to .avi files for sharing."



    -Windows. The Windows version is not without its share of irritants. If you want to play back a recording on the SD card, you click a button in the viewing window which opens a dialog box with a list of the daily folders. You open the folder for the appropriate day, scroll to the clip you want to view, then click Playback or double-click on the clip name. The dialog box closes and the clip plays. If you want to see the previous or next clip, you have to repeat the entire process. Depending on the the capacity of your SD-Card, you can have dozens or even hundreds of clips on the card. The Windows version now has the ability to record clips to your hard disk. Like the Mac version, you must download and install VLC Player in order to view any you have recorded.



    -Web Interface. As you might expect, the web interface gives you the most information about the cam settings. To display video in the web interface, Internet Explorer is required because an Active-X control is used. This means you cannot view the cam image via the web page at all on a Mac or if you use Firefox or another non-MSIE browser in Windows. However, even with Internet Explorer and the Lorex Active-X control installed and enabled, all I ever got was a black frame with "Locating..." in the middle of it.





    I think this is a great network cam if all you need to do is set up a camera and monitor the situation in real time. You can accomplish that in iOS, Windows, and even the Mac beta version. However, I find the process for creating, viewing, organizing, editing, and exporting clips to be cumbersome at best. If you do not know the exact date and time a clip may have been recorded, finding the pertinent clip could be very time-consuming. I also think the process for setting camera features and scheduling could be more intuitive.

    Works well wirelessly,



    I hooked this up in my office because we keep the front door locked and I like to see who is out there before I step out in front of the huge glass doors and they see me. Sitting on a table inside of the office it has a great view of the outdoors and the street. The picture is surprising clear.



    We have some ridiculously overpowering firewall in the office, so hooking it up was a bit of a challenge. It would have been very easy to sync it with the FIOS wireless, but instead I had to assign it its own IP address and go through several extra steps. In spite of how techno-savvy I may sound with the whole "assign it its own IP address" bit, I truly am a moron when it comes to that stuff. That being said, you can figure that setting up this camera is very easy for anyone who can run a computer.



    It works on all of our cell phones, so anyone in the office can run the app and quickly glance at their iPhone, or in my case, Android, and see very clearly who is knocking outside. Very groovy.

    Great product Go slow Follow the directions



    Ok I admit I sat here with the box unopened wondering if I would ever get the set up to work, since I may type fast on the Internet but wires and plug in stuff never seems too have easy to follow instructions.



    You can add additional cameras and this set up is for day as well as nighttime use. It covers up to 30 feet which is decent for inside a home or for use inside a chicken coop if you are interested in what or who is stealing your hens or eggs. Would be awesome in a baby or child's room or if you are a caregiver set it up in the persons room so while you work you can keep and eye on things via your computer.



    Thankfully they have video that walks you thru everything included and if you go slow and dot panic, the set up will be up and running.

    Good camera for the right application



    I received this camera with some excitement. I have a baby monitor already and though the camera was wireless it has to be run via a dedicated network hub which is annoying. So I was quite excited about running this sleeker and more elegant looking wireless camera with motion detection. The plastics feel a bit light and cheap, but the camera doesn't look it. The mount/stand is made from molded aluminum and nicely curved which finishes off the look.



    My first disappointment out the box was that it doesn't run on batteries and has to be powered by a powered USB port. Either from a device like a computer or a wall socket adapter. So it isn't THAT portable since it has to have an external power source of some kind in order to run.



    Set up was dead easy if you have a modern wireless router often all the password info you need is on a label on the back or the camera can make use of the automated WPS feature if your router supports it.



    The L-View software that comes with the camera is simple but effective and allows you to have up to 4 cameras running simultaneously. Your list of available cameras is on the right column which can be dragged to any of up to 4 windows on the screen to activate it.



    The default quality is quite low at 64k 640x480 resolution at 5 frames per second. Quality isn't actually bad considering that the bandwidth being used is equivalent to your average mp3 music track.



    A right click on the camera in L-View gives you a bunch of options where you can up the streaming quality and update to 30 fps in increments of 5. The motion sensor works very well as does the dynamic switching of night vision. I have a smallish house and the camera can see from the study across the corridor into the living room with no problem.



    One disappointment is that unlike my other Lorex system, this camera does not work with skype and isn't recognized physically on the computer as a device. Only the L-view software can see it. This is good for security since it makes it harder to hack but does provide some limitations for those who want to make use of it as a general purpose web cam.



    I installed the Lorex Ping software on my Galaxy S Android phone and it found and displayed the camera view straight away with no trouble whatsoever.



    Overall this camera is ok, great if you want it for fairly portable wireless security security camera that works in the dark. The image quality is pretty decent considering that it's a standard low res by todays standard 640x480 or 320x240 pixels.



    If you are getting if for the right application it is a decent camera. I would have liked to have had the option of viewing over skype like my previous Lorex camera. So not ideal in my particular situation.

    Nice picture quality but lacks in other areas



    I have a Panasonic wired camera and have been very pleased with it. The Panasonic isn't very easy to setup for remote viewing but once setup it works great. I picked up the Lorex for its wireless capabilities so that I could place it easily around the house. The Lorex is good on a number of things but it also falls short on several things as well.



    The pros



    1. Picture quality- I have found the picture quality to be very good. Seems to be better than the Panasonic with better brightness in daylight and offers ability to see at night.



    2. Wireless- for the price the inclusion of the wireless is a good deal.



    Cons



    1. Setup- setup wasn't as smooth as I expected after reading about the product. I wasn't able to setup the camera through my iphone so had to set it up via the web front end.



    2. Wireless connection- I'm running the camera through a Cisco wireless router and after a reboot of the camera it often does not find the router. This has happened several times. I often have to unplug the camera, the router, and then start both back up. I had the same issue running it through an Apple wireless router.



    3. Software- the software is a bit buggy on both the iOS devices and desktop pc I have tried. The iOS application for iphone has crashed several times. I have found the Ipad version to be better. The software for MAC computer is not very intuitive and looks to be a port from PC version. On the MAC version I have still not been able to bring up the video from the camera.



    4. Camera pan- my Panasonic has the ability to move the camera lens remotely, the Lorex is fixed.



    5. Web access- my Panasonic has a web based free service that allows you to bring up the camera without an application. This is nice when at work and I want to see the camera without using my cellular data plan. I am able to view the camera from my work PC on the Panasonic. On the Lorex the only way to view the camera is through the lorex software or over a mobile device application.



    I gave this device 3 stars because of some of the features that are not available compared to other products. Its a good start but I would consider other products before making a purchase of this camera.

    Really cool. Quick setup with Android and Win7



    The video is clear and the sound good too. Motion detection via heat sensing or video movement is really cool.



    I was able to get this all setup and working with two android devices and my windows 7 computer in about 30 minutes. Android app was actually the easiest. Pretty much just install app and then scan the QR code on the camera and your done. It was really easy and included lots of different features.



    Honestly, I only see two downsides to it that seem to be design short comings. Why no battery and why is the powercord short relatively short? Yes, I have lots of outlets in my house, but I'd like to have a bit more leeway with it.



    For the PC Software, it took me awhile to find it on the website (yes, it is included in the box on CD, but I wanted to get the latest.) I finally found it, by going to the item in the lorex store and it listed it under the "updates" section. I'd post the link, but amazon staff removes it.



    I see in another review that somebody claims it doesn't work with wifi unless your router has WPS. My router had WPS, which made it really easy, but the instructions do include info on how to download software to your PC or Mac so that you can use it with routers that don't have WPS. It is the same software you use to view the video from your camera and it appears to be straight forward.



    There is nothing about it that claims to be an outdoor camera and it does not appear to be weather proof, so I'd look elsewhere if you want to mount it outdoors.

    It works, but was a bit of a hassle,



    I got this camera from the Amazon Vine program because I'd never had an online security camera before. I'd like to say if I can get this thing to work, anyone can, but -- no, I've had a bit more experience with installing "devices" on a "network" than some, and I understand my router. And even so, it took me an hour longer than I think it should have.



    Lorex also makes baby monitors, and other handy security camera setups, so I wanted to try this one hoping it would be simple. I saw on their website [...] that they even have techs to come set up whole systems.



    I went to the website because I thought I'd failed getting the setup to connect to my wireless router, and wanted to find out how to blank the camera's memory and start over. I thought I'd gotten the camera to memorize the wrong passcode for my router. But that isn't what happened.



    When I thought that is what had happened, I fiddled around on the website for quite a while, saw many tech support pages with the little thumbs-up/thumbs-down icons at the bottom. Lots more thumbs-down had been clicked than up.



    I didn't find anything about what to do if it failed to connect to the wireless router either, no list of error messages, but finally thought of pressing the reset button on the camera which I'd noticed on the Quick Start instructions but forgot about. So I went to the camera to do that and found it had finally connected itself to my router. I hadn't made a mistake typing the passcode, and the camera hadn't crashed. It just took several minutes to find the router.



    Any way you do it, the camera once on the network, will put pictures on a number of devices, your PC and/or TV. To get images to your phone, you'll need to download the Android or iTunes App Lorex Ping, and it has room for a number of cameras. To get your camera onto your Lorex Ping, follow the directions into the menus, and the phone's camera will take a picture of the QR Code on the back of the camera. That procedure needs some work by Lorex. When the camera comes on by itself during the procedure, it has a CANCEL button but no "take a picture" button to use when you get it aimed at the QR Code. It took a few tries and some puzzling, but eventually the phone's camera took the picture all by itself, without me poking anything on the phone's screen.





    In my case, it did not. The directions explained the blue light would come on when it made the connection -- the three lights cycled and cycled, then went dark. Clearly it was searching for the wireless network, and failed. I repeated the sign onto the router steps putting in the passcode for my router, and again got an error message, FAIL on my phone, and the lights on the camera searched then went dark. I went through this several times, then went hunting for the Lorex website, as noted above. While I was searching for what to do about that error message, somehow the camera finally found the router.



    When I went back to the camera to try the reset button, the blue light was on and steady. So I didn't fail, and the FAIL error message on my phone was an error!



    So the two trouble spots in the setup procedure were getting the phone to take a picture of the QR Code, and getting the camera to find the router wirelessly. Both worked all by themselves without me doing anything except repeating the steps of the directions wondering why it wouldn't work.



    I conclude that this piece of hardware works as advertised at least in terms of using a household wireless network to send a picture (and SOUND - not great sound, but real sound you can understand) to your phone. The configuration directions might be a bit hard for some people, or take patience and concentration, but the device itself is rather amazing for the price.

    Now just take a paper-clip...



    The title above is a quote from a Lorex Customer Service Agent when I was calling about how to sign back onto the camera on my PC - less than a year old w/ Windows 7 OS - as she was trying to describe to me how to reset the camera so that I could accomplish this feat. I won't go into the details but it doesn't work, and I ended up uninstalling it from my PC.



    It works quite well on my Android phone, however, a Samsung Galaxy S III. You just have to long press on the phone's ID # for the menu to come up and you can adjust all sorts of settings and arrange to have a picture e-mailed to you whenever motion is detected, or sound or both depending on how you set it up.



    All very well, I set it up to my Gmail address and, despite the 1 to 10 scale of sensitivity, in reality it's all or nothing. No matter what setting I put it on, I either end up getting a picture mailed to me every 5 seconds - I've had to delete 150 e-mails from my account - or no notifications come through at all.



    The picture and sound quality are excellent and probably much clearer than the picture you see of yourself at your local convenience store.



    But so what? What is the point of having this device, a "wireless" camera with a very short power cord and no battery? Unless you can amuse yourself all day watching your driveway, which is where I have the camera focussed at the moment, I really don't see the point. I chose the camera because my neighbour had been complaining about scary noises in the night and our driveways overlap. I'm afraid to put her email address on the camera now because she'll become furious at me to find 150 or more useless pictures filling up her inbox.



    Everything about this kit screams BETA to me. It's a good camera. It connects well with the mobile app for Android they've developed - at least on the Galaxy S III, though forget about your computer. But I'm having to use an extension cord to mount it where it's useful to me.



    If you're looking for a good surveillance camera, look elsewhere. I've spent the better part of three days fiddling with the software, calling customer service, etc. and I've given up on getting quality use out of it.



    But I notice that this is version 1.0 of the mobile app. Lorex, update the software a little more and this thing might be worth the bother, and, btw, the paper-clip reset solution does not work!

    Now just take a paper-clip...



    The title above is a quote from a Lorex Customer Service Agent when I was calling about how to sign back onto the camera on my PC - less than a year old w/ Windows 7 OS - as she was trying to describe to me how to reset the camera so that I could accomplish this feat. I won't go into the details but it doesn't work, and I ended up uninstalling it from my PC.

    Truly wireless security...........almost



    Having used and reviewed other security type camera products the drawback has always seemed to be connection.

    Trailing wires, so called window mounted wireless cameras and so on are good, but often a pain to locate easily, without too much set up.

    No system is perfect, and although it's not really a complaint, when are we going to get one of these with a rechargeable battery pack to make it 100% portable?

    The set up is very straightforward as long as you have a newer WPS enabled router.

    The kit comes with a hard line Ethernet connection for initial set up, and you will have to piggy in the middle set up between you computer and router while you run the installation.



    The bracket (stand) can be free standing, wall or otherwise mounted, just remember if you intend to have it in a fixed location, it does have to be near an electrical outlet, so you may want to consider something like Wiremold C110 White Cordmate Kit to make it look neat and tidy.

    The unit enables you to record footage direct to your smartphone or tablet, or on the included integral SD card - a word to the wise here - you will need preferably a class 10 card for efficient recording, older cheaper cards will actually interrupt the recording if they are too slow.

    Connecting it to your phone is as easy as scanning the barcode of the device. You have to install the "ping" app from the website, on your phone or tablet, but it's compatible with most operating systems out there.

    Picture quality and video with the right SD card (there is NOT one included) is good in normal daylight, or interior well lit rooms, don't expect high quality at night. In fact the dual lens "night vision" which boasts up to 20' is not ideal, and very grainy black and white.

    Another nice (if not standard these days) feature is the motion sensor that activates and then signals your phone or PC if you have it set up for alerts.

    If you are away from home and using something like jump desktop for example, as long as your home PC is on and running(and that's where the Ping software is setup) you can monitor the camera from your own PC, from any PC anywhere, kind of cool.



    Overall it's a nice package, not cheap, but not that expensive either. With many additional features, including the option to monitor simultaneously on several devices it's a good addition 6to any home or office (even garden) security. More cameras can be added to give whole home or business protection.

    4 stars.

    Gustavo Fring, Watch Out!!!!!,



    A sniffer showed me that my next door neighbor was on the same channel and that their signal has a similar strength (Both ~ -74 dB). I have moved it much closer to the router (family room where it gets -63 dB) I have to conclude that something is wrong with the antenna.



    The Android app still requires several tries to relink to the camera, but I attribute this more to the app than to the camera. Meanwhile. Lorex has contacted me and may arrange a trade so they can examine this unit STAY TUNED!



    Summary: Overall 4-1/2 stars. Amazing network camera which set up easily with one minor hiccup, works great on my laptop and Android 4.0 device! Perfect for real time security, house sitting or nanny cam. On board SD or NAS recording! Wow.



    For those who aren't into the TV show "Breaking Bad," there is this Fastfood Manager/Drug Kingpin who has a network of surveillance cameras feeding his camera. I couldn't help thinking of this after I set this camera up and had a huge grin as I surveyed... my garage.



    Setup was very easy, even though I don't have WPS. WPS makes it super easy to "handshake" a device and your router, so I was doing this the hard way. Most people probably won't have WPS. In this case I installed the software straight from the CD (Note to Lorex: it's "Software" not "Sofware" Other than the typo, it installed fine on my quad core Toshiba laptop running 64 bit Windows 7.



    Size? The camera is about as large as a pack of cigarettes. Nice looking and innocuous except for the blinking red and blue lights. You can change the settings so the lights are out once the camera is linked. In general, there are TONS of settings that the average person won't care about. For a tech geek like me though, I was impressed.



    How wide is the picture? I have it mounted on the back wall of our 2 car garage and it *Just* covers the 16 foot wide opening. A little geometry says this is about a 42 degree included angle - I'd personally like to see something wider for interior surveillance, but then it would be too wide for outside work. I wonder if they could do something with clip on lenses to allow the user to select. Just a thought.



    Here is the tricky bit - the program, after installing, didn't show up. I had to manually navigate in windows to C > Programfiles(x86) > LOREX and run "L-View.exe" From there everything worked fine.



    From there I followed the directions in the quick start guide and had the camera running on the network in about 5-10 minutes total. I should note that after setting up the camera on your network this way, it still remembers the wireless network - I unplugged the camera and moved it to the garage. After plugging it in it did take perhaps 3-4 minutes to boot up and reconnect to my router.



    The mounting bracket appears to be metal - very nice and initially very good for the camera, but I had perhaps twisted it around a lot trying to read the QR code after I mounted it, so it no longer held the exact adjustment I wanted. There's a set screw I may be able to tighten - my advice is to pass on the QR code which didn't work on the iPhone anyways - it only saves you from entering a 9 digit number.



    I installed the app on my smartphone(HTC EVO LTE running Android 4.05). This was *very* simple. Also installed on my wife's iPhone 4S. I had to enter the camera number manually instead of using the QR code while the Android worked fine for the QR.



    *LIKES*

    - Easy to set up

    - Decent video - 3-5 FPS with 64-128 kbps

    - Good sound included

    - 640x480 resolution on the network, fiddle with your smartphone settings to bump up from 320x240

    - Switches over to night vision automatically when lights go out



    *DISLIKES*

    - Clock on camera is off by 12 hours - I suspect this is because it copied the system time from my computer but not AM/PM

    - Android version lacks video recording feature available on IOS (Perhaps it's my phone but I doubt it)

    - Had to manually find program on hard drive after installation

    - Mounting ball/socket loosened - had to tighten with screwdriver but it loosened again - will have to get some Loctite.

    - Occasionally takes an extra try or two to connect from my smartphone

    A little more direction needed,

    I wanted to use this for several reasons: Firstly, to put near a birdfeeder so I could watch the birds up close and capture video/photos of them without them seeing me. Secondly, to figure out where the dog keeps getting out of the back yard and thirdly, do keep in the play room to resolve disputes between two little girls who always claim "it was HER" when the piano gets tipped over.



    We hooked it up yesterday afternoon. The sofware is very basic, but it seemed to have installed correcty. I'm running Windows 7 64bit on an HP laptop. My son is running the same but on a custom built desktop. I also use this camera on my cell phone.



    The Good Stuff:



    -There is a slot for a mini SD card so you can record the videos as they are being captured, which is neat if you want to pull a photo off of the film. The mini-SD is not included.

    -This can be used as a two way device, meaning you can speak to the room being monitored (like yelling at the dog to get off of the sofa and then laughing hysterically as he goes from shock to confusion to possible minor mental breakdown over why your VOICE is in the room by YOU are not! This does require external speakers, which also are not included. Otherwise, you can hear what the people in the room are saying, but you can't respond to them.

    -The video quality on the first day was excellent - clear, crisp and not much of a lag at all.

    -The unit must be plugged in, so that is a consideration when deciding where to put this camera. But the camera itself is about the size of a typical point & shoot digital camera or maybe slightly larger than a deck of cards. It has a removable stand that can be screwed into a door, wall or whatever.



    The Not Good Stuff:

    -Not that easy to set up. My 15 year old son did most of it for me, but that was mostly out of laziness on my part, he was willing to run up and down the stairs between my laptop and the router (yeah, he could have just taken the laptop down, exercise is good) But camera came with a CD for software installation that wouldn't play at first and then once I got it installed, I kept getting error messages. My son doesn't get these messages on his computer. The user interface isn't very intuitive on the website or on the manual, I'm still not sure how to get a lot of things to work correctly like picture quality (which degraded a great deal after the first day, now it's more like a super pixelated, grainy, old school web camera. We're still working on messing with the settings but nothing seems to help and the website for the product isn't very informative either.

    -I have an android phone and my son has an iPod touch. The Apple version of the app has a lot more control (volume, alarms, etc). The Android version has NO help and really you can only watch the video, not do anything else.



    So, until I can figure out how to set the settings the way I want them to be set and how to set the video quality how I want for it to be set, I have to take off a star. I have to take off another for no guide explaining the error codes and what to do about them. If I am able to get these issues resolved, I will happily update my review and my stars. In this day and age, where cars connect to cell phones, laptop connect to tablets, gaming systems connect to TV's and internet - it should be a snap to install this camera and have it run easily with a good help section on how to change the settings, trouble shooting, etc. Getting all of the error codes is really frustrating. And having a screen pop up that says "Enter ADMIN ID and Password" when I didn't create one yet is really annoying because it won't allow me to save my setting!

    top quality, easy setup

    We've been through a number of network cameras for different applications, everything from taking photos at our hummingbird feeder to watching inside a bee hive. This is one of the best. The image quality is exceedingly good. We're using it at roughly 75 feet, no problems at that range. And this device is rather more versatile than most. 5 stars.
