The LNC16 Lorex Vantage Stream Wireless Network Cameras allow users to remotely monitor their home or business through a secure, password protected connection that requires no networking knowledge. Simply connect the ip camera into a router, run the installation CD and users are on their way to see, hear and protect what matters to them most. View on your PC, Mac or compatible smartphone.
With a quick & easy 3 Step Set-Up with no PC required, all you have to do to activate your camera is plug it into power, connect to the internet with the press of a button, then simply scan the QR code on the back of the camera with your smartphone or tablet using the free downloadable Stream App. Never before has it been such a breeze to set-up a wireless network camera. The QR code acts as the camera’s ID, and once you scan it, voila you’re instantly viewing live video right from your mobile device without the need of a PC!
Versatile and advanced the Stream is capable of connecting to the internet over Wi-Fi with WPS. Connect over Wi-Fi with no hardwired connection to the router necessary, so there’s no need for an Ethernet cable as long as your router has a WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) function. The camera can detect and connect to your Wi-Fi network and start streaming video right away.
The Vantage Stream IP Camera is ideal for consumers who want a reliable, affordable, and expandable solution for monitoring multiple locations. Expand your view and watch over multiple locations with up to 16 additional cameras simultaneously! The cameras are all linked using Lorex’s secure cloud connectivity, and the recording capacity can be upgraded according to user needs. View your home, your office, or your vacation property all in one screen on your tablet, PC or Mac! You can even have up to 20 users connecting to each camera at a time, using a user-selected password so the video streams are secured and protected.
Conveniently choose to either record straight to your camera on a microSD card using the built-in video recorder, or record directly to your smartphone, tablet, PC or Mac with the free downloadable remote viewing Stream and L-View applications for mobile devices, laptops and desktop computers. Using H.264 video compression technology in the camera maximizes recording space and conserves Internet bandwidth. These applications give the user the ability to setup motion activated and scheduled recordings to the camera, microSD card, the local memory of the computer, smartphone, or tablet, or a Network Video Recorder (NAS - Network Attached Storage) with no recurring fees!
The advanced playback software for your PC or MAC the L-Play; enables your recorded footage where ever it is stored to be streamed over the Internet to be viewed on your personal computer. Search for those important moments of your recordings using the advanced calendar playback menu, by selecting the year, month, date, the time of the day or just the motion recorded events. You can even select specific snippets of your recordings right down to the second to be converted to .avi format making it easier to back-up or share the videos via your social networks like Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.
Featuring 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!
This camera was built with a dual lens to deliver enhanced day imagery and excellent night vision observation.

I purchased my Lorex security camera last year when I was about to leave the country for a month and would be leaving my pets and home in the care of a new pet/house sitter. I informed her of the camera and told her I would be checking in to see my pets periodically. It worked perfectly for my purposes.
The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is that it periodically disconnects from the WIFI. Often I can get it reconnected easily, this last time took contacting support who was effective in helping me.

I like this camera. The picture quality and dashboard are pretty decent. My two reservations are (1) it is not compatible with my IP LNR360 camera system, so I can't add it as a camera to that platform and view with the other cameras; and (2, I can't get the L-View console to work on my tablet. It keeps giving me a 'password error' message, even though it is set up on my desktop PC with the exact same user settings and works fine. Trying to work this out with Lorex Tech Support.
All in all, this is a good camera for remote monitoring within a reasonable range of your wireless router, without the hassle of a hard-wired setup.
Thank you for your feedback. Please contact our technical support team and they will be happy to assist you. They can be reached Monday to Saturday, 9:00 am - 10:00 pm EST at 1-877-755-6739.

The IP camera is very good in terms of picture quality. Nice design and everything about the camera is good. Coming to setup...it is a different beast. Very tough to configure and keeps dropping the connection every few days. Very annoying!
Location: Las Vegas
I am very pleased.this system is so easy to install and set up. Just mount the camera plug the cable that came with the system in to the camera and run the cable to the NVR,and that's it !
The night vision good. Reselotion is great.viewing the system on my Samsung and Pad is so easy viva the app.I would recommend the LNR 400. The full HD SHARP!
Location: Merrimack, NH
Easy installation in just minutes. Now monitoring home on smartphone, tablet, and laptop. Will recommend to my friends. Just what I wanted and the price was right.
Easy installation and configuration! Purchased 2 cameras .. maybe I will purchase another 1.
Location: Los Angeles CA
Ordered two of this during Black Friday sale (2014). Received them quickly. They are very advanced camera and have clear pictures. I have installed them separately indoors with wireless connection. Configuration is super easy and is just a matter of plugging them in. No complains so far.

This camera is great. The image is better than I thought it would be. Very clear. Set up was very simple and fast. I installed this in my vacation home and I can monitor activity from my phone. I have one camera pointing towards the water and I can see live shots of the river any time I want. I love this camera. I highly recommend this camera.
Excellent camera. Follow the steps and you will have an excellent security camera to review your home or office. Easy instructions. Use your smart phone to view your home or office. This camera will deter crime. Great Job LOREX!!!

Best Money ever spent. Crystal clear picture. Easy set up, less than three minutes per camera. Email and ping alert best features. Again easy setting up and changing motion sensors. Good for window by from door. Sensor picks up motion and sends email picture! Awesome. Bought a three pack. Going to buy another three! Great product!
Bought one camera to try, now have 3 for just about a year. All work great, easy setup as short video said. Wish I had went with the 16 channel model.
Location: Richmond Texas
I was so impressed with the LNC116 that I ordered another pair .It is a very unique and very easy setup procedure just follow the instruction and it is super smooth. Very reasonable price and for the price I paid I am convinced that it is worth it and above all you can move the camera from one room to other room once it is synchronized with the router you can set in any room you like .BEST PART "PEACE OF MIND" BUYING DIRECTLY FROM LOREX WAS THE BEST DECISION AS THEY HAVE ALL THE INFORMATION ABOUT THE MERCHADISE SOLD TO ME . THANK YOU " LOREX"
Follow up review... Had an issue with one of the three cameras in the pack. Call customer service and to my surprise they are sending out a replacement camera today...no hassel, no fuss. Just great customer service!!!
Got setup within a reasonable amount of time, good pictures (still and motion). Viewable via laptop, iphone. Alerts to email.
I have purchased five of these cameras. Great picture and I can view them on my smart phone from anywhere. Great price and best technology for the money. Easy to set up but the instructions make it harder than it really is.
Location: Houston, TX
I purchased these cameras after a home break-in and it was an impulse purchase. These are great cameras and setup is super easy. I'm not sure I'm going to keep them since I had hoped to place them outside by the front and back doors. They appear to be designed more so for indoor use. I do have one in a window facing the street and I already received alerts which I liked. I was concerned that the motion sensor would be affected by glass window but so far so good. I'm also able to get a live view on my iPhone which I really like!

We purchased the LNC116-3pk for our home and it was relatively easy to set up. We have been using for about a month now and we really like it. I love how I can connect to the camera wherever I am. We had planned on setting up one of the camera facing outside to the front of our home however we were unable to see the images. They work great inside the home. One function I would love to have (or maybe it does and I do not know how to work it) is to intercom (talk) into my baby's room but it works just fine as is.
Location: Springfield, MO
Liked the first camera so much that I ordered a second one. Easy to set up and make it do everything advertised, except after motion was detected, the camera would disconnect for a couple of minutes. Emailed Lorex Technology, which answered within 24 hours. They advised me to "Reset" the camera. I did that and it cleared the problem. LPS setting (heat sensitivity) works very well for Email alarms.
Location: Springfield, MO
Easy and quick setup. Camera image is very good. Audio microphone is very good. Have been able to setup all things that this camera advertises. Online manual is very easy to read and is very thorough. Had one occasion to call for tech support. (be prepared to wait awhile) Tech person was friendly and knowledgeable and showed me how to do what I wanted to do. ( I should have been able to figure it out on my own) Instructions said Micro SD card, which is hard to find at 32 GB. Turns out a SDHC card works just fine.

Have a LNC116 3 Pack and am very happy with the results of the ease of connection as well as the quality of the product. However, the warranty demands that I have a "bill of sale" for any claim. have been unable to download a "bill of sale"
Location: Toronto, ON
Picture and sound quality are great. Setup was very easy. The only functionality that is missing is recording video via a cloud, so unless you watch it live or use an SD card there is no way to review the video.
Location: Lincoln, il
Picture quality is great. Relatively easy set up. I added speakers (from an old computer) and the audio is a great tool to use. Got a lot of bang for the buck with these cameras!
Location: Stouffville, Ontario
Everything works fine except one bug. I can't update the cameras' password after the initial changed from the default "lorex" password.
Easy to setup, image quality is good, and good value.
Location: Chicago IL
I searched for a while for a camera that would be easy to set up and offer good quality at a great price. This camera bundle fits the bill! Very easy to connect to my Android phone. Even easier to connect to PC with software that is included. The video quality is very good even in darkness. Very impressed and happy with my purchase. A very affordable products for multiple devices. I would say this cameral bundle is the way to go!

Well at this point I wish I could write a great review but .......... Support...... what support ????? I have tried the phone route a number of times. After an hour of more of waiting, no support agent. Left a call back number. Never a call back. Tried creating support tickets. Nearly a week later now and still no response. I really do think if you buy this product you are on your own !!!! The software...... even worse! Looks like early beta software. The mac stuff....... most of it doesn't seem to work for me, at least not the way it says it will in the documentation. Would I purchase again? Not a chance!
Location: Orlando Florida
Nice product at a reasonable price. Easy setup, great as a nanny cam.
Location: New Jersey
The cameras are ok. If you are going to face them out they will not work at night. In door night vision works well
Great security camera for the price. Very easy to set up on iPhone and IPad with the Ping App., and L-View download for my Mac. Had a slight problem with wifi connection at first, but that was due to my error. I purchased the 3 Pack to cover my door entrances, and recently ordered an additional single camera. Video is very good for viewing and play-back from SD Card or Mac and mobile devices. The auto infrared for night vision is great. Once I learned how to use these cameras, I'm very satisfied with my purchase, especially the price.
Location: Brandon, Ms
Very easy to set up and use quickly. I was able ot set up the camera on my ISO, android and PC devices. The software is straight forward and easy to follow. Once the camera is set up on wi-fi and connected to a router that is connected to the internet there is nothing else to do but enjoy and make use of the tool. The software takes care of DDNS automatically with no input needed from you at all. The picture looks very good in the day and excellent at night when it goes into a very sharp black and white mode. The only problem I have had is setting up an old Kindle Fire which will connect but then drops back out. I'm very happy with this purchase and have already bought 2 more and I'm planning to fix my mom up with some security of her own very soon.
Decent item --- set up instructions could be better. Also, almost impossible to read serial # on camera for registration and,set up the ddns access but it did not work.
Location: Myrtle Beach, SC
Very easy set up if you follow instructions !! Don't forget to re boot camera at the end and all will work fine !! Mine does, 5 minutes out of the box !
Location: Dallas, TX
Great cameras that are super easy to set up. I have had 6 in operation for a little over a month and couldn't be happier. The only thing negative I have to say is about Lorex customer service. If you have to call them for anything expect to wait on hold for a LONG time.
Location: Kansas City, MO
Cameras work great using my Mac Book Pro and iPhone for remote viewing. Setup took some time but considering my low level of expertise, it went pretty good. The only problem I'm having is not being able to see all the cameras (I have 6 cameras set up) all the time (sometimes none of them) from a remote location. Viewing on my LAN is no problem. At this point, I'm not sure what the solution is. Maybe my router? I haven't contacted Lorex yet, but if all else fails, I will.
Location: West Hollywood
Try as I might, the thing does not work. Junk, and I have to send back. So disappointed as I have a dog with a recent cancer diagnosis I wanted to keep and eye on , like tonight when I came home from diner with a friend and she was falling on the floor trying to get up and had been there for some time.

I purchased a 3 pack of the LNC116 cameras to monitor my summer home. I was amazed at how easy it was to install the cameras. I watched the video prior to the arrival and did not need to review the quick start guide. I am able to view my summer home on my computer, iPad and iPhone from anywhere. I would purchase additional cameras from Lorex should the need arise.
I have shopped all over for a solid quality wifi camera and I think the dual lense technology of Lorex is the best and priced lower than lesser quality cameras. In this case you definitely get much more than you paid for. Set up is simple, setting scenes and alerts without having to pay a monthly fee is great too! Too many companies charge for access to your own equipment you purchased. I have it set up in my main house and vacation home it does not need a computer to work or plug into the router, and you can even turn off the annoying lights, many cameras out there don't allow for this! Awesome cameras!!
Very easy to setup and works great. I amazed how well I can see my cameras from my Android device. L View on my pc is great. Technical support is good. If you have a problem write a ticket and you will get a response in a day. I recommend highly.
Location: United Arab Of Emirates
the Camera is amazing, nice wide angle but i wish it had a built-in Speaker instead of simply and Audio Out .. also wanted to have an easier interface to view it from my PC online .. my DDNS did not work .. it works only on my smartphone
Location: Cedar rapids IA
I am very pleased with my new cameras. They were an easy set up and do what I need for them to do. I love that I can access from my cell phone and can watch over my business at anytime. Will buy more if I need to expand my system.
It's a great camera with compact size. The motion detection function is very useful and the video in the night is clear. You could receive email alarm when there is a motion detected. But you have to configure the SMTP server. In conclusion, it is highly recommended.

Recently purchased a few LNC 116 cameras. I did extensive research into the home security realm having been a victim of home invasion. Did not want to pay a company to do something that Lorex allows ME to do and give me peace of mind! Set up if very simple to do. My only draw back is the live feed is always a few seconds behind. I am not a computer guru so there may be a fix to this. Maybe a stonger or faster internet or both. The LNC 116 system has given me and my family peace of mind. Looking forward for more advanced, wireless, do-it-yourself products from Lorex. I will and have recommend this system to friends and family!
Location: Southern California
I recently purchased an LNC116 camera on sale. After quickly learning what it was capable of I purchased 2 more while they were still available. I'm extremely impressed. It can see across the street with great clarity. With minimal adjustments I had them capturing a high quality picture day and night at the push of a button. With the Android app I can view each camera while I'm away and hear whats going on too! During the initial setup I needed some phone support and the service tech actually knew what he was doing. Lorex has made getting my geek on a very enjoyable experience.

These cameras provide great quality and easy setup. Much better than using a baby monitor. Very reasonably priced and quick delivery.

I've had the LNC116 (3 pack) for less than a week and found it easy to connect and get up and running. I like the capabilities of the camera and very useful for securing my home. Easy to connect to on my Android and iPad. No issues there. However, I believe this security system is missing one main component. When I leave my house or cabin, I want to be able to go to a menu to press one button to turn on and off all my presets notifications for all the cameras in my house. I should be able to select those cameras that are at my house, so only the house notifications get turned on and off as I leave. I find it a pain to have to access each camera and then select what notifications I need every time I leave or enter my house. With some addition programming, Lorex could make this a slam dunk product. If it is really a security system, then the cameras should work together like a system; similar to typical to wired house systems when you can Arm and Disarm the system with one button or code. This is a good product and what I was looking for to eliminate the need for a central station. Also, it would be nice if Lorex provided a feature to shutdown the cameras when someone is at home, but not wanting to be monitored. My wife works at home and doesn't care to have me monitoring her during the day. I do like the cameras and feel the price is good and can be very effective.
These cameras were very easy to set up. I have an app on my android, my nexus tablet, ipad, wife's iphone, macbook and desktop. The cloud viewing is great and I can see my boys from my work or on the bus, anywhere at all, and it is very fast to bring up a camera. The night vision is very good, and I am able to make out everything in the room in pitch blackness. Even a soother that has fallen to the floor. The controls are good and intuitive and you can turn off all lights on the camera so the kids can sleep without a glowing eye in the room. I am very pleased with the quality. It just works so well!
Location: Nova Scotia
Easy set-up. Clear picture. Technical help was very efficient and knowledgeable. My only problem was that the shipper lost/misplaced my order and it took 25 days and numerous calls to Lorex to finally receive my purchase...that is why I cannot give a full five stars.
A bit pricey but you get what you pay for and this is a great product. Extremely easy install, great web support, and works as advertised. I set up two cameras in about 30 minutes including physical install and web uplink. Later, I easily added remote viewing for my family on PCs, Iphone, Ipad, and an Android device, all without needing to be onsite. Will be looking to add an external camera soon.
Very good cameras. I use them all in a wireless configuration. Easy connection, good color picture, acceptable black and white image. I did a lot of reviewing and comparison shopping, and found these to be the best for my use, especially for the cost. I initially bought 5 of them, and then purchased another 3, for a total of 8 LNC116's. Very happy so far.

I purchased 6 of these IP Cameras and had them up and going in a very short time. The instructional videos were great which helped a lot with the installation. I downloaded the software for my Mac and was viewing high quality color video with sound in minutes. I then download Lorex Ping from the App store, installed it on my iphone, and was watching my home remotely from a local restaurant in less than 5 minutes. I will be buying more of these great cameras. Thanks Lorex for such an exceptional product.
I would give it 5 stars, however, the lens should have been a wider angle to encompass a greater field of view for small spaces. In a home environment all rooms are not gigantic and this renders this camera useless. Everything about it is good EXCEPT the setup instructions. The video makes it look so simple BUT what they do not make clear is you HAVE to connect it up to your router with a wire FIRST. Then and only then can you change the settings on the camera and make it connect WIRELESS.
