HD home wifi camera

High quailty video

The LNC234 is capable of producing high-quality video thanks to the HD image sensor at its core. With this camera you will be able to:

  • Record real-time 30fps (frames per second) at a 1280x800 megapixel resolution for smooth, detailed images
  • Set-up recording on your computer or mobile device
  • Record straight to the camera with a microSD card (not included)
  • Save recording space using H.264 video compression

wireless wifi IP camera with motion and sound alerts

Motion and sound detection

The LNC234 uses two different types of motion detection to keep you aware of movements around your house. Along with top-quality video motion detection this camera also utilizes a PIR (passive infrared) sensor to detect levels of infrared light emitted from objects that generate heat. This means that if a person enters the room the PIR sensor will sense the temperature change and notify you. The built-in microphone can also warn you of noises with audio alerts for an extra layer of home protection.

Lorex Dual Lens technology for day and night security footage

Dual Lens Technology

This wifi monitoring camera is ideal for homeowners who need around-the-clock coverage. It uses separate sensors for day and night. One lens is devoted to daytime viewing and provides you with pristine and colorful video while the other lens is specially designed for low-light conditions. The camera also boasts a powerful infrared LED that allows you to view up to 30ft away in total darkness. It also automatically adjusts the gain, white balance, exposure and brightness to maintain optimal video quality in all lighting conditions.

2 way audio home wifi camera

2-way audio intercom

This wireless home camera contains a built-in microphone and speaker for two-way talk communication abilities. There are many benefits of having audio in your LNC234 WiFi monitoring camera:

  • Speak to people on the other end of the camera (perfect for entrances or a baby nursery)
  • Hear and record audio
  • Receive sound activated alerts
  • Expand your coverage beyond your cameras field of view
  • Greater ability to detect and interpret events

Wireless or wired - the choice is up to you

The LNC234 has both wireless and wired capabilities. A wireless connection might be for you if you wish to have the flexibility to move your camera around your house. If you mount the camera to a ceiling or wall a hardwired ethernet connection will provide you with maximum connection speed.

Lorex Ping2 App

Easy connection with Ping2

The LNC234 is designed for use with our Lorex Ping2 app for mobile phones. This app makes remote viewing a breeze with an easy set-up and straightforward interface. Once connected, configure the app to send you push notifications straight to your phone for motion and sound activated alerts. With this remote viewing app you can also save a snapshot or record video straight to your phone, and activate the two-way intercom.

Lorex Ping2 is designed for iOS and Android phones, but will still work with tablets. Windows and Mac software is available in the documentation section below.

I had the opportunity to buy this camera directly from Canada. I was surprised because the shipping was free and the camera arrived in a couple of weeks. In my personal opinion this camera is amazing. I had the opportunity to use before other brand camera with similar features but the Lorex has a lot of incredible stuff (Example the camera can record and play your video in a internal micro SDCard of 32GB). I am planning to buy a second camera in a few time. Thank you Lorex.

I had a Samsung cameraat Costco that I returned because it was flakey and not easy to set up. . This works great, easy to set up and have it on my iphone and Ipad,, I also use it on a Win 10 laptop
However , I am confused on the model number. The order is for the LNC24W NEW PRODUCT. The box says LN 234. The actual camera says LNC 230-C.
How is it 3 different models and how do I know I got the newest model at the correct price?

This camera has lots of features for the price, but requires patience to use. The daytime lense performs well, but the night view is pretty dark. Also, the cameras consistently show to be off-line. Rebooting the camera or multiple tries usually and you can usually gain access.

Just checked with BBB and their rating is about 0. Only wished I checked with them first instead of spending my money. Yes they are willing to chat in regards to sales but NO support.

Easy setup and very versatile. Really like having the ability to move the camera based on who is working around the house, or if the dog isn't feeling well and I want to check in. Only down side is that it uses different Lorex software than my other cameras.

I do networking. I have been waiting over 30 days for the replacement. My ticket online says "RMA Advanced - Needs Shipping". Customers service now always a 30+ minute wait.

I have a similar model which I was given as a replacement because the original just froze up. These cameras are very good. I have six of these LNC 100 & 200 model threw out my house and I can check in anytime to see what's going on. I love the cameras especially the 2 way audio. I can catch my grand kids in the act of them doing something they are not supposed to and correct them right away with the 2 way audio. This let's them know I can be watching any time. A couple of these went bad but with the warranty I was able to get a replacement with ease.

I put two of these LNC24W up in my cabin in the woods, where the internet is spotty at best, to get a record of break-in's - luckily there haven't been any so far. The resolution, color, and contrast of the camera is great! It has capability to activate on motion and record the event to the optional SD memory card. It can also send an email with a picture of the event. The sensitivity is adjustable, so you can tune out the nuisance events. It is possible to stream the camera feed live, and even have 2-way audio. The frame rate and resolution for streaming are adjustable as low as 1 frame per second, which is great for low speed limited data connections like my cabin's weak cell phone 3G data. I will be ordering more of these for my house and my mother's house. I only wish there were some dark color options for the camera housing and power cord, since white stands out against my wood walls. I will have to color it with a Sharpie for now to keep it inconspicuous.

I had an older similar version of the LNC24W which worked pretty good both indoor and outdoor. This new version seems to have better software (Ping2) and is definitely clearer and easier to use. Would recommend to all for the price.

The camera is ok and works ok, as long as i can maintain a wireless WiFi connection.
The web site did not indicated that the camera was for indoor use only. And the infrared feature doesn't allow placing the camera in a window to view outdoor at night.
However, for the price, the camera works ok. I just haven't found a good place to install the camera. I may return them and purchase a battery powered, outdoor camera. Or i may keep it for indoor usage.

This camera works amazingly well for what I need it for!
I have an elderly mother, who can be left alone for short periods of time, and even though she has a personal monitored alarm, I worry constantly while away from home. This enables me to see her, hear her, and even speak to her while away! Have had it up & running for about 48 hours now, and so far it's the BEST $50 I have ever spent!
I am not very tech savvy, but it took less than 20 minutes to get it all set up!
There is a slight delay in the motion and sound but that is fine -nothing to complain about
If it only lasted 6 months, the price would be well worth the peace of mind that it has given us both

The cameras arrived on time.You don't have to be a tech savvy to set up the cameras, just follow the simple instructions and if you need any help, call the support line. Very easy app, great connection both at home and with your mobile phone provider. Remote viewing is excellent. The camera doesn't have to be mounted. Just place it on a flat surface and adjusted it using your phone.The price is excellent too.

Not sure what is the problem. it connects few times and does not connect few times. You could not really trust it. If you enable motion detector it will always send you email notifications even though there is no motion detected. I will not recommend to buy this product.

Purchased camera which did not work. Wireless connection was intermittent even when located within 2 feet of the router. I have another camera which worked just fine. Did online request for return which was approved. Returned the unit and then received notification from UPS for delivery. Week later nothing. Then called customer service and received a complete run around.......warehouse did not acknowledge receiving the unit until a week after UPS delivered it. Then I was told technical support need to check the camera which had a unknown time factor. Then 2 weeks for a refund. Why technical support had to check the camera when it can be returned for any reason is beyond me. The customer service guy was clueless! I was going to purchase a whole security system from these guys but not after such poor customer service. Buyer Beware!

Our apologies for any difficulty you experienced.

I ordered a camera. It came. It didn't work properly. Technical Services at Lorex agreed it was malfunctioning, and submitted their paperwork to have Customer Service approve a new camera. I waited. And waited. In frustration I called Customer Service, twice. Both times it was confirmed that I have a faulty camera, and they would send a replacement. I waited. And waited. And I'm still waiting. These people and this company are awful. Buy your camera someplace else.

I ordered the camera in advance of my dog's double knee surgery. I received the camera in plenty of time and unpacked everything to get it set up to make sure it was ready to monitor my dog for the short periods of time I have to be gone days after her surgery. The camera came with a plug that is not compatible for the US (did not specify in the product description - stated 'AC adapter'). After three lengthy phone calls and waiting on an email response from customer service, I had to go and purchase one at the local electronics store to use because the replacement process would take too long. I had to spend and additional $112.00 on a camera in my small town in Texas ( I was surprised they had one). I am still waiting for the directions to return the cords - for the camera I purchased 13 days ago. If I were to return the camera, I would have to pay the original shipping (that was free with my original purchase) of $10.00 and then return shipping. For a camera that was sent to me in error - with the wrong plugs. I will not order from Lorex again. I was very disappointed in the process.

Our apologies for the error with your order and any inconvenience this may have caused. We are happy to have resolved this for you by sending you a replacement.

I have purchased the camera and set it up. I get the alarm on my cell phone whenever someone enters the room where the camera is set up, as the motion detector is activated.
My only complaint is that it seems no matter how hi or low I set the sensitivity of the motion detector alarm, I still get occassional false alarms. However, I love that I can watch
"live" on my cellphone whenever I choose. I am still experimenting, but am quite happy with my purchase. While there is also an Audio alarm, which also can be set to hi or low sensitivities, I have not chosen to activate it.

You'll need a SD card for it to work as intended. The wireless is sketchy. My main complaint is with the stupid password nonsense. I have to put in my password for EVERYTHING!!! It's stupid. Want to see what's been recorded on the SD card? Put in your password. If there are 15 videos that day guess what? That's 15 passwords even though you're still on the same screen Want to refresh the list? PASSWORD! And if you're like me and want a secure password it sucks even worse.

My next complaint is the directions and startup guide. I'm a fairly techie dude and I was flummoxed. It's so klunky and inelegant and freakin confusing! It reminds me of manuals translated from Japanese to English. A simple step by step guide would be so much easier. And include all the information. No parenthesis that say crucial stuff like, (you need to be wired directly to configure the unit) Hey! That's handy information. Seems kind of like step one, no?

So it does work but it took a long time to figure it out. If you can't wire a cat5 directly and depend on wifi, it's not dependable. I was only three feet from my router and it dropped out quite a bit. We'll see. I'm skeptical.

I don't know if my review belongs here, but I'm going to put it here anyways. I ordered 2 LNC24Ws, but when I received the package, it said LNC234 on the box and LNC230-C on the sticker with the barcode. So I still don't know which model I actually have in my hands. The first time I tried to connect the camera to my wifi network using the smart QR code to test it out, it took less than a minute to get it connected. The second time I tried to connect it to my home wifi was a pain in the butt; the smart QR code no longer worked ( I double checked that I had the right wifi password typed in). I then had to plug in the Ethernet cord, change some settings in the app, then unplug the cord hoping that it switched over to wifi mode. It took both cameras a couple tries. Other than that struggle, everything else was fine. One thing I did notice is that the camera gets a little warm after it's plugged in for a little, so I don't know it its performance would be affected by being in sunlight for parts of the day. I would have given it a 3 star for the struggle getting it connected to wifi, but the price tag bumped it up a star. I would recommend this product

This was one of the items on Brads Deals. Value priced. I installed it in less than a half and hour, included the mounting on a ceiling and installation of the App on my computer and IPhone. Works well and now I know what my dogs do while I am away. I used them as my test situation and I am proud to say they don't bark when we are away but do move around some. The camera worked seamlessly. I purchased a second for detection near the back door. Hasn't arrived yet but the I anticipate another easy install. Highly recommend the LNC24W.

Bought this camera when it was on sale through another retailer and couldn't believe it was so cheap, since it had all the features I wanted. It's built well. You can tilt it to the side and have it peek around a box to stay hidden, and the status light has an option in the app to stay off. I suppose you could buy/make a power supply with the end of a wall wart, a 12v clip and battery (just a suggestion--google it and try at your own risk!). It sits in the corner of my garage on a shelf and sends a notification to my phone whenever someone gets home in the evening. It's a really great camera with so many adjustable features. The only trouble I had with it was the app, which is confusing until you learn your way around the menu of settings (just keep tinkering with the Scheduling settings...or I suppose you could find a YouTube video that explains it). And the wifi...plan to be sitting next to your router for a good 5 minutes or so when you first set it up. The connection wasn't perfect since it was out in the garage behind brick walls and metal doors, but I read online that you can adjust the DDNS settings and it'll keep them linked. Havent tried it yet because I stumbled upon a telephone Jack out in the garage and just plugged it in to the network directly. It's been working fine ever since. My mother has requested the link to watch the feed from her laptop so she can come over whenever a certain family member isn't home, and my great aunt has asked me to set one up at her house to catch any kids that may cross onto her property. Haha.

This is the 2nd time I placed an order. Like another reviewer, I placed the order, paid for it and never received a confirmation. When I didn't receive the item I called and they said it was never received. So, I placed another order. It was suppose to arrive today. Unfortunately they "forgot" to include my unit number. I called customer service, had a hold time of over 5 minutes, they offered to call back, nobody called. I was on live chat, (with Sarah), they told me to call customer service. I let her know I did. Then she asked me what my address was. I gave it to her. She said, what do you want to change. I said, I want my apartment number included so I can receive the order. She asked me my apartment number again. Finally, after spending about 30 minutes on the phone and live chat, I had to go so I can't tell you how the product is because I haven't even received them. I'll update when I/if I actually receive them. Very frustrated. I purchased 2 cameras as a trial and planned on purchasing more if I liked these. It's too much work just to get an item that I paid for, I'd rather pay more and get the item with a reputable company that takes care of their customers. I can't imagine if I need technical support.

Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for the mix up with your shipping address. We hope you are enjoying the cameras now.

I have the same issue as a previous poster. Ordered the LNC24W. Box says it's an LNC234 and the back of the camera says it's an LNC230-C.

First off, it's an ok camera. It's better than I had before which was no camera. Set up was easy and was quickly able to view the video on my Samsung S6. After a few days of playing with it, I noticed the the clock in the corner would stop for up to 30 seconds or more at a time while streaming. I also started to notice that just before the clock would stop the picture would flicker and the audio kbps would drop to zero. I'm not sure why it does that but it happens every time I watch the stream so there is some stop and go video while viewing it live.

Also, the camera I thought I ordered was supposed to record at 30 fps but the stream is showing 10 fps/11 fps max. I have recorded some motion videos and the motion seems chunky. Not quite what I thought 30 fps should look like. I also get multiple motion alarms daily and when I check the alerts, there's nothing there. Today I received 5 false alarms while at work.

Like I said before, for the price I guess it's OK and it gives me a little peace of mind to be able to take a peek on the house while away, but it seems a little buggie. I also wonder why the camera model numbers are all over the board. Did I get the camera I ordered or were they just unloading a bunch of older model cameras and thought no one would notice??

Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for any confusion. You received an upgraded version of the camera due to stock at the time of your order. Our technical support team would be happy to assist you with any issues you are experiencing and can be reached at 1-877-755-6739.

Nice little cameras and if I can set them up anyone can.

The first I purchased had a thermometer and broadcast the temp on the screen and that should be brought back.

Bought that first one, then a while later 2 more, then some more time passed and I filled my screen with the 4th.

Excellent vision in the dark and sharp enough to ID anyone taped.

The free internet connection is also the best. Keep it FREE PLEASE.

A little difficult to setup by myself, (TECK CHANGLEGED) but with the help of the Lorex technical support, who were very patient and more than willing to work thru the issues, everything is working great. I was even so pleased that I purchased a fourth camera to hook up on the Wi-Fi connection. Shipping was very reasonable, FREE, and arrive quickly. Thanks Lorex and your entire team.

Very please with the video compression. Very frugal on space consumption. 32 gb card should hold several days of recordings using motion detection.

Not sure what i purchased. Web site says It's a LNC24w
Box says its a LNC234
Back of camera says its a LNC230-c
Lorex doesn't seem to know what it is. It runs hot. On the face of the camera the temp is 110 degrees, on the back of the camera it's 106 degrees.
I did use a infra red thermometer so i know the temp could be off a couple degrees but that still seems hot.
Called Lorex to see what the operating temp was....They don't know. I've got several security cameras and they all have an operating temp.
I've heard a lot of things about Lorex and now, maybe it's all true. I won't order anything else from them and i have to assume the temp being
as hot as it is will shorten the life of the camera. Anyone that know anything about electronics knows temperature is the enemy.
I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS CAMERA OR LOREX TO ANYONE.
think lorex has the balls to post this????

After a month of miss communication with trying to get a missing part I was able to get my camera up and running and connected to my home network. I connected to the Ping software on my Android tablet and the picture looked very good. I also tested the night vision picture, with all of the lights off I view the camera on my tablet and the picture was very good. I am not disappointed with the camera I just wish it was able to connect it to the internet.

Love this little camera, you can put/hide it anywhere, it doesn't stick out in the open amongst thing's screaming hey I'm a camera, this makes it nice when monitoring the kids while at work. It's an ease to move, as long as u have a plug in, you now have an extra set of eyes. I consider myself pretty tech savey and I must admit that set up to operate the camera from the PC was laboring, from my phone it was pretty simple, but the PC I had to go beyond the instructions and reach out to other web site forums where the average Joe explained there frustrations and how they resolved getting there PC operating with the camera. But that a side, this little baby by far makes up for the time spent to get it up and running, I recently went out and bought a 10 camera wired system and had I known the ease and quality of this camera I would never had bought that system and would have bought a few of these. With a little research and a couple hours to dedicate in hooking it up and getting to know it, you will be smiling from that point on. Love this camera and we'll worth the price.

I order 3 of these cameras to ease the mind of my wife. The set up was pretty easy, The only problem I had was putting one in my kitchen. I don't know if it was to far away from the router or not but for some reason didn't work in my kitchen. The night vision is amazing, The microphone was also amazing, Didn't like the fact it slowed down my internet to a snails pace but I guess its what to expect. I am currently trying to figure out how to get the files to save into a different location once that is figured out this camera will be perfect.

My Friend purchased this camera (LNC24W). I checked out the specs.

I decided to order three. I like the motion & sound sensors. Also, it can set off an alarm. It's compact & easy to conceal. The image is clear. It's easy to install. Good so far.


The only problem was the power plugs were european (I'm using adapter plugs).
. I've already made contact is customer support to send the correct power plugs.

I really like my new LNC204 wireless two way audio cameras. The picture is really clear and they stream everywhere except while I am driving. The audio is pretty good you just need to keep the microphone about a foot away for clearer sound. I had challenges setting them up as I got this "handshaking" message which I could not find answers to online. And finally had to call. So I went on hold for about 30 minutes with customer support and a lady named Shawna was so helpful and awesome helping. After we got them working I have had no problems thus far. I already own 15 wired cameras so I like Lorex. Support is not great though so know that going in.

Took a bit to figure it out, but once I did the camera did everything that I wanted it to do. Only major gripe is not having the ability to get videos from the camera remotely if I watch one and want to send it to the police or my wife from my phone - would come in handy if the intruder steals the camera to prevent the video evidence being used against them. Minor gripes are that shadows seem to set off the motion detection if I leave the TV on when I leave the house and the instructions are pretty thin around the microSD card. Great camera overall though!

Ok so easy setup maybe for some but wow was it difficult for me. In fact I continue to have dropped connections repeatedly. I followed the instructions and it is connected at the moment but I dont trust it to be my security if it drops every few hours. I have the correct ports open and forwarded and still camera disconnects. I am hoping it is a firware issue and that lorex is aware and in the process of patching. I will update my review in several days. I have seceral other ip cameras from a different name brand manufacturer and although their video quality isnt as high they have never been an issue. If the problem continues I may have to ask lorex to send me a different unit.

Got cameras up and running without much trouble. Online videos were very helpful. I have noticed, however, that it takes a lot of light for a color display. I thought one of the cameras was bad because the color would switch to B&W and back until I increased the light level. At night, I have to have a lot of lights on in the house to get a color picture. I planned to use these cameras to see what was going on at home while on a trip; so I hadn't planned on leaving that many lights on. Guess I'll be looking at a B&W pic. Knowing this will help with camera placement though. Also i noticed one camera has no temperature chart selection - don't know why. I also can't get the L-view program to let me enter camera info. I'm using a Macbook Pro. The program runs and the screen comes up; but when I select either the folder or camera tab and the box comes up to enter either the folder name or the camera info (camera name, number, etc.) I can't enter any info in the box. Cursor won't blink in the box. A friend who also has Lorex cameras said he had that problem too but doesn't remember what he did to get it working. Cameras work fine on my iPhone though. I didn't see any info or help files on the L-view program. I'd also like to know how much data I'm using on my phone when I look at the cameras. I like these cameras and I'm sure I'll get these issues resolved and for the price I think they are a good value.

Bought the LNC-216 because its is very easy to set-up and maintain. Video quality is sufficient for my requirements and the wireless feature allow me to use it in almost any location within reach of my wi-fi network without need to rewire. The built-in audio (mic/speaker) allow me to listen or talk when I am away. Over-all this is a very helpful product for people with minimal technical skills to install.

This is for the LNC216 and LNC204 Used them inside to see both inside and outside. Best setting for both was setting for outside view.They work great to see indoor but maybe some of you have tried to use them against the window to view outside.There will be feedback reflection fromt he window.How I solved it was to block the reflection from window with a 1/2 sleeve or sleeve as in a cold air intake from a car (3 inch id worked good).The 1/2 sleeve or 1/2 collar placed in front helps keep the reflection from the window.This is 2 1/2 inches tall so the lense can see ok.It also lets enough light into the infra red at the same time it blocks window reflection.I tried a white color sleeve and it made things a lot worse!!!!Then I tried black and that worked great!!!!Also a curtain drawn behind keeps the background light away which also reflects into the window so try to block the background light also.Also needed a good outside houselight.The best I have tried were the old incadesent 1690 lumen bulbs,too bad those are no longer going to be made,so I had to find the next best bulb for the outside house light.I made sure it was able to be rated for 100 watt bulb as some cheaper outside light fixtures were only good for 75 watt.The newer halogen bulbs if using an A19 style bulb I liked the 1490 lumens which was 100 watt (75 useage which ran cooler compared to the older 1690 incadesent.This was to setup the outside light as without a good outside light the camera indoor won't work as good to look outside at night.Also the camera works best when viewing outside from an inside window was when I had the lens closer to the window which you get less reflection back.I also used a square base to mount the camera and some round stock.I picked up some 1 inch round stock to screw to the base.Then slipped the 1 inch stock into a barbell end (barbell collar which had the 1 inch hold in it)which id threaed to use a set screw to hold the round stock.This allows to put camera at different heights.The next thing I used was some window film to darken the window.Then I put a piece of cardboard just temporary to mark pen lines to see where the camera lense were looking,switch your camera from day to night which then you will know where to cut the window film for your viewing square hole for the camera to see outside from the inside.This hides the camera nice from,I also liked the black cameras because they blended best wit the dark window film.I used the static cling type which worked good.Hope this helps I spent a lot of time trying to get the indoor camera to view outside from inside the house and the end result was great!I now use my LNC204 cameras with the LNC216 cameras and software as they worked together in the system with the new disc so you can have up to 16 cameras total.The LNC216 software disc worked great to overwrite the old software without even uninstalling it!This isn't a recommendation on how to set up cameras it's just what I tried to get them to work best for me,there may be better ways but so far this seemed the best for me.Thanks Lorex for some nice cameras I was happy with them.

Cameras were great upon initial install. With the exception of me having to climb a ladder to install, it only took about 45 minutes per camera, and that included the WPS setup to tie into my wireless router. Color is super, and they do just what I wanted. To keep an eye on my employees. The ONLY thing I have a comment about, is that they do not support Windows phone with their viewing software, so I cannot log in to view cameras on my Nokia Lumia Windows Phone. And that is a problem !

I have mixed views on this system. First the positive: relatively easy to set up and when it works, it works fine. But there are some negatives. (1) the temperature sensor seems off by sometimes 10 degrees or more -- usually on the low side. Since one camera is for a baby, this is a problem. (2) Sometimes the camera(s) just stop working and need to be disconnected and plugged in again. So reliability is "iffy" at best if using it for security. (3) L-View is TERRIBLE on PC. Not intuitive at all. E.g., There are at least 3 places to modify camera settings/params: By right clicking a camera in "camera list", by right clicking a camera ID in "search" (who can remember what number belongs to what camera since you can't rename cameras in this list) and by clicking the "screwdriver" icon on bottom of L-View. There's absolutely no sense to it. Multiple places to set passwords with no clear idea "why". I could go on and on--perhaps worst interface I've seen (and I've seen many). Also, when you "record" a video using L-view you should be able to change the default folder on Windows these recording go...alas this does not work .. couldn't get it to record on a d-drive (data) disk. For this I would give "0" stars. Finally, just had a problem when a camera became unresponsive (only power light is on). Tried unplugging etc but it wouldn't work. Tried tech support and couldn't tell if it was connected or not to wireless network. Did a camera "reset" and only the red light turned on (was expecting the camera to reboot -- go back to factory settings or something). Finally, I did another camera reset and tried connecting, and it did -- I had turned off LEDs, but the reset did not reset this, so it seemed to me the camera was dead. BTW--the tech person I spoke to didn't recommend I try a reset and reconnect! So, bottom line, a 3-star review is generous -- only because hwen it works it's fine.

So far the product has lived up to its advertisement. I have installed one of the two cameras, and I have not installed the second on because the cable to connect the camera to the power supply is black, and I have just started to search out a white cable that is a little longer. A black cable run on a white wall is a dead give away.

After a month of trying EVERYTHING, I can not make my LNC204 or LNC226x play anything BUT sound back on my Galaxy S5 android phone. This phone has been out for a year or so and is advertised as android compatible but there still is not a fix for the video problems. I can monitor a live feed with PING, but I can not play back anything off the micro memory card with my phone. If you have an IPhone, as my kids do, it works flawlessly. On the good side, the cameras, LNC204 and LNC 226x, are beautifully crafted and operate well on a PC with L-View and L-Play. The video is crisp and clear and the sensitivity on both is amazing. Wish they would have had a fix for those of us with android phones. If they had, these would have earned the highest rating.

The camera is easy to set up and has good picture quality. The problems I have is changing any default settings such as alarm notifications. Contacting customer support was a waste of tome as I never received an answer to my questions. Phone service was much better, it only took 2 calls and I have it mostly working the way I want. Finding answers on the web site is also difficult. I am still trying to find the program to download onto my pc since I am told that is the only way to change some of the settings.

I bought the lnc226x. It performed as stated. I had to get a android tablet to view remotely since there is no ping app for a windows phone. Is there a plan to have an app for windows phone? I plan to use these cameras for my home service clients. Very easy to setup if you have some networking knowledge. I couldn't give five stars cause not compatible with windows phone.

Just bought an LNC216 camera online. Took quite a while to be delivered but was easy to connect to my cellphone and tablet ,both android, as well as a Dell laptop,Windows 7. Haven't tried to connect to my Apple Mac as yet. The picture should be better i think but am guessing that is due to my internet service which I may upgrade later on. I plan to buy at least one more.

We bought this camera after having been recommend by my brother. This was the best decision I have ever made. Not only can you see a clear picture both during the day and night, but you can also hear what's going on as well as talk through the camera. I was so pleased on how easy it was to setup. To mounting it on the wall, downloading the app on the iPad and iPhone and connecting it to Internet. Couldn't be more pleased, great purchase!!

I recently purchased the MCNC204, but had to return them for the MCNC216, both cameras are excellent, they give you clarity in pictures, sound, taking a photo or recording. If you need more than four camera get the MCNC216 you will be able to view all your camera at the same time. If you only need four camera get the MCNC204's; either way you will not go wrong, it is a great camera for a great price. I have a total of 7 cameras and I am totally satisfied.

Good: Very easy to setup. Works like a charm. Not So Good: Confusing documents. What confused me was the article "Cloud Connection Frequently Asked Questions" in the Download section. I finally realized (after a couple hours of fruitless configuration and looking for what Cloud Configuration is) that this article has nothing to do with this camera model. I think the only way of looking at the videos is either from the Lorex Ping app or the L-View PC/Mac app. Cannot view using a web-browser to view. Again, this is not clearly stated in the product manual or in the quick start guide.

I AM QUITE CONFIDENT THAT I WILL BE ABLE TO DO THAT, ALTHOUGH I MIGHT NEED SOME HELP ALONG THE WAY. COSTCO & UPS CAUSED ORDERING AND DELIVERY DELAYS - BUT THE WAIT WAS WORTH IT! THE REALLY INTERESTING THING IS THAT LOREX IS BASED IN LINTHICUM, MD, WHERE I LIVED FROM 1981-84. I WORKED AT NASA SCI/TECH INFO FACILITY AND WAS THERE FOR THE FIRST SHUTTLE LAUNCH. I REALLY LIKED TAKING THE BUS INTO BALTIMORE ON WEEKENDS AND EXPLORING. SO MUCH HISTORY! SO DIFFERENT FROM CALIFORNIA! JOB WAS SORT OF DEAD END, SO I EVENTUALLY HEADED BACK WEST.

This review is from the first 4 days of installing/operating the camera. Naturally, a later review will be done on once the camera has been "time tested". Initially, I found the LNC204 to be a very good product. Somewhat disappointed in not being able to get a wider view (horizontal) with the camera; need to have the camera connected via ethernet in order to change settings; dropout wifi connection (needs access to camera/connections/settings via mobile app); would like clearer video. I do like the video motion setting and the responsiveness of the camera to images. Further evaluation will be presented at a later date.

I purchased the LNC200 series from BJ's.com at a very good price. Set-up on the Ipad was quick and easy for the two cameras. I am only using them to view live and not doing any recording. One camera is not always available but I am not sure if that is related to my router. After a few times of trying to bring it up it comes back on-line. Temperature monitor seems to be about 5 F less than actual, but as along as it is consistent I'll be happy as I monitor our house while away somewhere warmer. We'll see how it works when we are away for the first time and I access them. Camera does very well in low light conditions. Viewing angle is somewhat restrictive.

Update to my previous review: A couple of days after I posted the first review which I stated that I liked the functionalities and easy setup of this cameras, both of my cameras stop working thru wireless connections. Both were ordered as a pair and they broke down about three days apart. The first one - I called into Lorex support and after spending about 2 hours walking through the scripted troubleshooting step - which I had already done, the support guys said they going to send me a new camera. Three days later, my second camera died just like the first one. I am pondering if I should call in and spend another two hours on the line. The kink is - since I liked it so much the first four days of the camera fully functional - I had ordered another set. I will have to consider returning all the cameras back to the the big warehouse store where I ordered them from. I still like these cameras for the easy setup and functionalities but It's unfortunate that these cameras are so unrliable. Two cameras broken down in less than a week of operation. I am giving 2 start this time for the functionalities and the easy setup and of course for the unreliability of the cameras,

This review is for Costco Lorex LNC72B HD IP Wireless Camera 2 pack. Pros: Wired as well as wireless network connectivity. Camera video quality viewing very good, especially on an IPad with Lorex Ping HD. The quality form the laptop was very good too. Slightly less video quality on Android devices like Samsung S3, Tablets, etc. but still good. Picture in the e-mail very clear and can identify an individual if face not covered. Placed it inside my house pointing outside through a glass window and changed the settings to be "Outdoor". It still gives great picture quality. A 32gb microSD card store data for almost 20 days per camera video based on the setting that I have for both cameras. The Ping software has lots of settings / options to choose from so there is a learning curve to get used to all the settings. Cons: Unreliable Lorex Ping software / connectivity so hope it works when I really need it. Hope the upgrade patches would make it work better. Setting the camera was tedious inspite of me being in IT.

before buying this product, I research other brands as well and based on all the reviews and specs I made the decision to buy these Lorex Cameras. However, I have been having connectivity problems from day 1. To test the signal strength I did a test by placing the camera about 2 feet away from my wireless router and about 40% of the time it dropped the connection. When I placed the camera in my living room aprroximately 25feet from the wireless router it dropped the connection about 75%. Based on the specs it seems that have great features but it cannot perform to the specs. the good news is that I bought them at Costco and after 4 months they will go back to them. I will try Belkin cameras even if they have lower reviews than Lorex.

I bought 2 LNC200 from Costco.com. Overall I'm satisfied with the cameras for the price, $250. However, there are a few things that I'm disappointed with. First, I can't schedule a recording or set motion recording directly to my PC. I think I can only do it with an SD card in the camera or a NAS. Second, there is no fast forward on replay. You can only skip forward by double clicking the hash mark on the timeline and there's some issues on the time stamps (on the hash mark when you point the curser to it and on the replay screen). Again, I'm satisfied with the cameras considering the price.

Having previously bought and returned a D-Link DCS-2330L HD camera, I can testify that setting the LNC204 is a breeze. While I was unable to setup the D-Link camera to send motion detection video to a NAS or an FTP Server, I was able to set up both in less than 10 minutes on the LNC204. While recording on the SD Card only supports low resolution videos, you can easily record HD quality video on your NAS or on your PC. Therefore, I use the SD card as a backup media, in case my NAS would go down. While the software provided has some shortcomings (L-Play provided does not allow export to AVI format, etc...) it is far superior to Lorex's competitors offerings. Very happy with this purchase. And if you come visit, smile cause you are on camera.

I can't believe the versatility and all that these cameras are capable of doing. At first intimidated by all the abilities I found that setup was very easy and the online manual was one of the clearest written I have ever encountered. Every question I had was answered in the manual, for example, How do I turn off the LEDs to make the camera less visible. All in all so far I am very impressed with this purchase. I may actually order a couple more for security in an elderly relatives home.

I ended up buying the 2-pack of LNC204 cameras from Costco, for $250. Setup was very easy, and had no problems connecting to my wireless LAN (Linksys), where I disable the SSID broadcast, but the Lorex setup had no problem finding the network and configuring the cameras. Out of the box, one of the AC power adapters was flaky. I called Customer Service and they sent me a replacement adapter right away. For $250, you can't beat the HD picture quality and the feature set that comes with these cameras. The ability to have 2-way audio is great, as well as sounding off an audible alarm. I've also setup motion detection alerts, where I get an email with a photo attachment of any pictures the camera snaps when motion detection is enabled. I've also setup streaming video recording to my PC, where I can later play back the video on the Lorex PC client software. I primarily use these cameras to keep on eye on the house and kids when I'm away. I'm thinking of getting another 2-pack of cameras to extend coverage...and 4 cameras is the max you can connect with the LNC204 models. All of this stuff, plus HD, for this price point is a no brainer.

The cameras seem to be working really well. I'm impressed with the quality. They were a royal pain to get set up on my wireless network, but work well once configured properly. One small complaint that I have is regarding their power cords. They have a USB plug on the end, which would lead one to believe that they could be plugged into most common USB ports and powered via that method. I purchased a small surge protector with USB ports to use specifically for our cameras. Apparently the amperage put out by the surge protector was a bit too high. When plugged directly into the surge protector it caused them to endlessly cycle where they would connect for about 3 seconds, disconnect, and then go through the whole process again. Once plugged into the USB adapters that came with the cameras (or my computer's USB ports) the functioned just fine.

The LNC204 Series is a great price, an easy install, and incredibly convenient. The free apps to view and control work on both PC & Mac, Smartphone to tablet. I got the two pack and again it is a great price for being able to monitor front and back door. I also have used the two way audio feature (very clear) and it comes with an audible alarm. The alarm isn't incredibly loud, however they geniously added an audio out to plug into any amp/speaker. I am also impressed with the night mode! The only downside with using the night mode by pointing it out a window is the infrared reflects inward and causes a glare (can happen with any cam), however it can still pick-up quite a bit if you have a outside light/motion light. You could mount it outside, but it doesn't state it is weatherproof-- so I wouldn't with 4 seasons, even if under a protective overhang. I also try to keep it out of direct sunlight as it heats up fast, and the thermometer lets you know (I shield it behind curtains/angle it). What a great product & a great price! Buy a 32gb micro sd with it and you are all set. Great buy :D

I have to say I am very impressed with this camera, I tried a Swann IP camera and the video quality was terrible not to mention the setup was terrible. I even double checked to make sure the video quality settings were on the highest setting. . The setup was super easy for this one compared to the Swann. It literally took minutes from the box to seeing video on my android phone and laptop. I haven't tried the micro sd card to record footage yet. Some people I have seen complain that it doesn't record it in the highest video setting. As this wasn't needed for my purpose of buying this camera it doesn't matter to me, could be a problem for others. The speakers and microphone on this camera are really great, I love how you can adjust them to be sensitive or not. The night vision it very cool, completely dark and I can easily see 30 feet on the camera. I wish the camera would switch to color with a little less light though. But I would rather see a clear black and white then a lesser quality of color. The video can be a touch glitchy, but I do have it on the highest video setting, not to mention its wireless to my router and wireless to my laptop and phone, No complaints! I haven't tried to motion sense for it yet. I love how as long as I have a power outlet I can put the camera anywhere in the house that Wifi will still reach it. FYI using this camera as a baby monitor.

I purchased the LNC200 first but returned them once I found these as I wanted the two way communication option. I have 3 of them around my home. Setting these up was a breeze and I love the fact that these are color HD and look amazing over my smartphone (Droid Maxx XT1080M). I have a handicapped sibling at home that I have always worried about when someone was caring for her if I were away...now I check on her all the time and am so happy to be able to both SEE and hear her. The communication is like a two way radio...you can talk but then have to push the talk button again to turn off, in the lorex phone program, to hear the other person. There is a lag which means if they start speaking right away you may miss what they say. Just recently, however, the mic in her room stopped working. I have sent in a ticket to see if there is something I can do. Maybe I just need to disable the camera and reinstall. Regardless I love these things...GREAT for seeing what is going on around my home.

this is not an HD camera this is not an HD camera this is not an HD camera allow me to clarify; among the features, this camera has remote view capability using their custom program on either a smartphone or a pc. in either case you get to choose the image quality in one of four resolutions: 320x240 (QVGA) 640x480 (VGA) 1024x768 (XGA) 1280x800 (WXGA/HD) of course you would always want to choose the highest resolution, why else would you pay the extra money to buy an HD camera, right? so far so good. the problem is when recording to the SD memory card it will ONLY record the video in 320x240. that's right, in the lowest, grainy, can't recognize any faces resolution. what this means is that if you ever have to review your security video recordings, you won't be able to recognize any faces or any other details that would help identify anything. you may as well be staring through a frosted window smeared with grease. when i contacted lorex support through their online form, they replied with a generic response and closed my ticket. this forced me to call them on the phone. the first person who answered the call tried to get me to change the resolution in the pc/smartphone app. when i explained i wanted to be able to RECORD video in HD, she put me on hold for a while and then introduced her supervisor. the supervisor explained that the recording capability was limited to the lowest resolution in order to 'save space' on the memory card. when i explained that i've purchased a 32gigabyte memory card specifically to be able to store plenty of HD video, she said it was still not possible. i then asked specifically if it was true that this HD security camera did not have any ability to record video in HD resolution and she agreed. so it seems that lorex is selling an HD security camera that can't record in HD. this is false advertising. what good is a security camera when it can't record in the advertised HD resolution? all of the reviewers giving this product high marks did not bother to test wether the recording was HD or super low-res, or don't even realize it. i'm going to return this useless lorex low-res junk and get the samsung SNH-1011 IP SmartCam, at least it records in 640x480 and they don't lie about it.

Follow upon my previous review. If you read my previos review, I've been struggling with what turns out, still after getting my replacement, random crashes on now any of my cameras. Well after hours over days of playing with the setup, I found two settings that would make the cameras crash. 1. if the network has a hiccup or can not sustain high image quality/data rates, I am writing 4 cameras to a NAS drive, it will crash. In my case when I connect to it, it increases the data rate more. I turned my data rate setting for the image setting for the network down to 2 mb/s and lowered the quality, it stopped. 2. if you turn the LED lights off it also crashes randomly. Some times it work fine for days, but when it crashes from #1 above, it then crashes randomly from then on. I turned back on the light, sometimes, I have to save the setting multiple times and reboot. Now I just use a black electrical tape over the lights. My real test I was to monitor the cameras continuously on my iPad for hours for several days. Playback disconnects due to crashes since I figured that out. My wife said I was spending way too much time trying to debug these cameras, but I really like these camera. Now I bumped up my ratings slightly. The Lorex support site needs a more useful FAQ troubleshooting tips page.

We purchased 2 of the VGA version (LNC104) of this unit for my sister, it went great. The camera had great image quality for VGA. We decided to buy four of this version for our home from Costco. Immediately we noticed that 3 of them were factory resealed unit, the other one was not. The installation went through ok. The image quality was much better when there is good lighting. In low light it did not perform as well as the VGA. Also, in low light it is in monochrome.The units has great features in recording and playback from NAS drive or builtin SD card. The one pain is there is no easy way to turn all the units off when we come home. Now for the problems, one unit produced very noisy imagery after it is ran for several minutes. It was defective. Costco handled the exchange with Lorex without any hassles. Several days later we got a replacement refurbished unit. This unit turns out to also be defective, it will randomly crash and reboot repeatedly at time especially when the computer/iPad connects to it. After contacting Costco, Lorex insists we contact them in case we are doing something wrong. After 3 calls for a total of about 2 1/2 hours, they agreed to let us ship it back. We still haven't got the replacement unit. The other 3 / 5 units works fine. The software seems to be buggy with the LNC204 but not with the LNC104. Until they work the bugs out on the HD version, consider the non-HD version for less hassle.

I found the setup very easy on the two cameras that I purchased. I used the PC setup procedures, then downloaded the Lorex Ping App to my IPhone and IPad. Both Apps worked like a charm. The images are quite clear, even at night. The one issue I had was related to the microSD card. The manual says to format the card first, but does not offer instructions for this operation. I called technical support (which too 20 minutes to answer) and asked if I could format the microSD card on my PC (with the appropriate adapter). I was told that was OK or I could format the card via L-View. There is no option to format the card in L-View. I went ahead and inserted the card (Lexar 32 GB) without formating and it seems to work fine.

Pretty slick little piece of technology. It installed and connected more or less as advertised, with a speed bump or two or three: 1. the unit's camera struggled to read the QR on the iPhone, so that took awhile - it might be easier if the camera was reading a tablet (see #3, below) 2. I struggled to identify the camera to the ping software (in my own defense, the model number on the box was different from the model number on the sticker on the back of the unit . Silly me: I used the number on the camera ... (note to future users: use the model number on the box - not the one on the unit) 3. and speaking of tablets, the app won't work on my kindle. after installing the Lorex viewer, I am baffled by the login instructions. perhaps it's just me, but how tough should this be? i loved the idea of getting an email every time my dogs moved. WRONG! After about 15 minutes I had received 54 email alerts. Turned it off pretty quick. I haven't yet figured out if i can get it to text me when the boys change position on our bed or bark at the UPS man. Is this possible? i know i can get it to 'ping' me (hence the name, right?), but the iPhone has to be on and the Lorex app needs to be open, i think. clarifications are welcome! ABB

I bought 2 LNC204 IP Cameras from Costco. They are easy to connect wirelessly to the home network, and monitor from outside. I like all features: monitoring Temperature, Listen and Talk two way audio ... I am not sure how safe is the video online. Lorex indicates it's very safe and not stored any where in the Cloud ?!?!?! I got to trust them.... The other issue is not cleared to me who is the super admin to maintain the camera settings, not 24 users can set their own camera settings without interfered the others ...

I picked up the 2 pack 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!

Bought samsung cameras at costco. Software was unreliable. Could not access cameras half of the time. Picture quaility just ok. Returned to costco. Love the lorex ping. Picture quaility excellent. No problems accessing cameras. Much happier with these cameras.

The camera itself works fine, but it's not accessible via a standard web browser, only with the L-View software. No L-View, no live video, which makes it tough to view while traveling or while using someone else's computer. It also makes this camera incompatible with Blue Iris, the popular security software. I'm pretty disappointed.

Bought the LNC204 LIVE Ping wireless cameras from COSTCO at a great price. With my iPhone I used the Lorex Ping App to set them up. Very easy and quick. I loaded the LOREX L-View software that came with the product on CD on my laptop and it found the cameras and provided another way to configure and view the imagery. I wouldn't view the cameras away from my home network so I went on their support page (FAQ). I downloaded the router config tool from the support section to get the port forwarding to work. Easy to load and once I added all the info the tool needed (outer model, admin user ID and password for router, IP address of the camera, etc..) the tool ran flawlessly. I disconnected from the home network and could access the cameras from Verizon cell service. So far these are great cameras with lots of features. The motion detection, temperature alerts and night vision are perfect for keeping track of things at our summer house. Looking at getting a pair of outdoor cameras next. John

Ordered four LNC204 cameras from Costco. Super easy to set up....under an hour. At this point, I have all the basic functions tested and all is well. These are now my interior cameras. I recently moved the LW2232 wireless cameras to the exterior of the house working off of a Blackbox 2 DVR. The IP cameras pulls up extremely fast on all my devices....iPhone, iPad and Windows 7 computer. No bandwidth lost. Alarm, microphone and speakers are all working great. Looking forward to programing the cameras to record to my computer's hard drive soon. These are great HD cameras. I highly recommend!

For a while now I?ve toyed with the idea of having an wi-fi enabled security camera that I could check over the ?cloud? on my smart phone. I was excited at the prospects offered by this Lorex cam: 1) quick & easy 5 minute setup, 2) Free smart phone app, 3) 2 way audio speaker/microphone, 4) Email & push notifications for specific alerts, 5) day & night view, 6) SD card support for recording. Sadly my experience has thus far been far from easy and to this point I have yet to be able to connect with the camera to see if it?s actually even capturing anything. When I received the camera, I pleasantly surprised by the very small amount of documentation included. In the box I found the camera, a stand, a power cord (which can also be powered by micro usb), a CD with PC software to install, an ethernet cable and a quick start guide in multiple languages. Scanning the quick start guide it suggested a super easy setup process?simply download the Lorex app on my iPhone, input my wifi address and then let the Lorex camera scan the resulting QR code from my phone. I tried it and received a message that my password might be wrong. I tried again with the same error. Again I tried and this time nothing happened. I unplugged the camera and rebooted my phone and tried again. Finally it claimed to have connected to the WiFi. In the camera list on my phone I could see the camera in the ?local search? so I went ahead and tried to connect. I was told the camera was offline. I tried again and was given a nondescript ?failed? error message. Not wanting to give up yet, I took the camera in to my computer and plugged directly to my router via the Ethernet cable. I installed the PC software from the provided disk and I tried to connect via my PC. I saw the camera in my local search and tried to connect. Once again I received either the ?offline? error or a ?failed? error or (more often) no error at all but no camera connection or video stream. I went to the Lorex site to try and find a more detailed manual and some troubleshooting instructions. The site made it a little difficult to find what I wanted. The ?support? section didn?t really address my issues. I did find some articles about ?port forwarding? which I enabled in my firewall and on my router. I also tried completely disabling my firewall. In the instructions I found that there exists a ?web configuration? page for the camera so I tried connecting that way. I found that I could connect to the camera via IP address without problem and that I could adjust a variety of settings there. So the camera was truly online and connected to my network but there was still no way to attach to the video stream (assuming a video stream is actually happening). I continued scouring the support pages for some time. I downloaded the Lorex software for my Mac to see if it had any better luck but it also could not connect. I tried setting up DDNS for the camera but that didn?t seem to help either. I also tried connecting via our ?guest? WiFi at work as well as a ?Verizon MiFi cellular hotspot.? Neither network had any better results. I have put in a support ticket to Lorex to see if they have any additional suggestions or troubleshooting tips. My wireless network is VERY standard. Basically all I have is a (fairly new) out of the box router connected to a cable modem and configured with a WiFi password. As it currently stands I have a rather expensive piece of metal and plastic which flashes some pretty LED lights but doesn?t seem to do much else. I am giving it a provisional 1 out of 5 stars. Hopefully their support team will be able to help me get it up and running, at which point I will gladly revise this review and provide a better score accordingly.

Great product and really easy to install. I had 2 cameras running within 20 minutes after I received the shipment. I was impressed by the quality of the video under all light conditions. So far my only minor complaint is the inability to suppress the power light on the camera.as I can with the status LED. I never would have considered the temperature reading to be an important feature but now I'm really finding it handy. I'm already considering other uses and contemplating the order of additional cameras.

I watched some online videos from the Costco & Lorex web pages before installing the LNC 216's. It was easy to initially set up using my android and wifi network. I later used the disc to add the view and playback programs to my laptop, and after this it kept giving me the same command that I had to uninstall the current program to install the updated one so I wasted a lot of time with all of that, but I was rather distracted while doing this, so maybe it was me. Meets my needs so far. I purchased to keep an eye on my older dog and my young pup, and to be able to talk to them if they create mischief while i'm gone, and to keep an eye on the front of my house, and to see who's at my front door. I turned off the LED lights and with this setting change, don't have much of a problem with reflection in the glass even with having the camera close to the glass on my window sill, with better than expected night time vision for this (set for daytime). Can record to a SD card in the camera, your smartphone, your pc or tablet if you have the software loaded on it (I don't have a tablet) but haven't done extended recordings as yet, or figured out if can record to a cloud, and would like to, due to if someone breaks in, they are likely to take the camera and pc, and I don't have the recording capacity on my android--suggestions on recording to a cloud, dropbox, etc. that have worked?

I noticed that the viewing angle from this HD camera (model no. MCNC200) is less than model LNC 104, even though it said the veiwing angle is 66 degree compare to 60.3 degree respectively. It's a little dissappointing.

The cameras seemed easy enough to setup from my Windows 7 PC. Had several issues with the cameras not staying connected, could not get the cameras on the camera list or search list in the Lorex Ping application for the iPhone or iPad. Created a ticket with Lorex support and they closed it telling me I had to call the toll free number since it was a Level 2 issue. I called the number and waited for 20 minutes to get a Level 1 technician who gave me another trouble ticket number and put me on hold for another 30 - 50 minutes for a senior level engineer. I gave up and will search the web for a way to resolve my issues. I like the look of the cameras and the high quality is very good.

i recently purchased four of the LNC104, but returned them for four of the LNC216, The LNC216 offered more features than the LNC104. At first one of the cameras would not allow me to view through Ping with my iphone nor computer; this occurred because I set the 216s up the same as the 104s. After resetting the camera and using the wifi setting icon on my iphone to set the camera's wifi up, it came up perfect and I 've had no problems with viewing. I have clear concise images, and I am able to check anytime of the day as long as wifi is available. Looking forward to adding a few more cameras.

We now have a smart phone. We were able to quickly hook it up with our cameras. The picture on the smartphone is excellent. Having a temperature reading on the camera is also a real plus. There are lots of applications for these cameras other than security,and we will recommend them to our friends. If you have a situation where you'd like to keep track of an older person, children, or a pet these would be an easy set up.The cameras can be placed anywhere you have an electrical outlet. Even though they are not outdoor cameras you can point them toward a window and get a good picture during the day. We are very happy with our purchase at this point. The only issue now is reliability, but Lorex does have a good warranty to back their product

We bought 2 of these cameras through Costco at a good price, but have only had them a few days. The setup for our wireless wps router could have been very easy, but the directions that came with the camera said to hold down the wps button on the router until the wps light lit up. That never happened. I found a video about set-up on the lorex site which had the person just push the button on the router and release it right away and then within 30 seconds press the wps button on the camera. That worked perfectly. Now that the camera have been set up with the router, if they are unplugged or lose wifi access, they will hunt for the wifi signal and connect automatically when they are plugged back in or find the wifi signal. I then downloaded the L-View software onto my laptop. It was easy to install off the included cd and took no time to get the cameras on it. The cameras have a good picture, the temperature reading is a nice feature to have. As long as the cameras are in a location which picks up a strong signal from your router, the motion shown on the camera is fairly consistent with the actual motion in the room. We also have a Samsung chromebook which we use when we travel. Lorex does not have an app for a chromebook at this point. I set up a ddns account through Lorex for one of the cameras to see if I could access the camera on the chromebook using it. I am able to get into my ddns account with both my laptop and the chromebook, which enables me to be able to change settings on the camera either computer. I am also able to get the camera display on the laptop. So far, however, I am not able to do this on the chromebook since it comes up that I need an ActiveX app to play it. I have tried one, but it still does not work. I have not given up, but it has taken time to get this far. I cannot review the setup with a smart phone, since we do not have one at this point. I also have not tried the laptop at a location outside of our own home.
