I have two of these cameras and they work ok - good clarity when looking realtime. The motion trigger is not very good - it triggers on fog and slight light changes and sometimes does not trigger with a person 5 feet in front of camera. I had one camera go bad after 3 years and am now trying to purchase another one but there is no way to add the camera on Lorex website to the checkout - you also cannot find the camera on their website without doing a direct search of model number. I tried calling their sales line with a recording of wait time of 8 minutes - I waited 15 then hung up.
Not good service!
Our apologies for any inconvenience. This model is no longer available. Please see this page for alternate WiFi camera options https://www.lorextechnology.com/site/wifi-security-camera/N-1grm2jn?Nrpp=999
An unbelievable experience. I am at the point of getting a replacement, since I am outside of the return time period. As long as Tech Support doesn't hang up on me again, I expect to get a replacement. This device worked for a very short period of time after which I have had nothing but problems. I have spoken to Tech Support about 8 times and they have me do the same thing every time. They read the manual (which I am capable of doing). Tech Support has told me it was my fault the system went offline since I pressed too many buttons. What they don't know, and I discovered is that the system will go off line if three attempts are made to reset (which the tech told me to do). If I get a replacement, and if it works, I will be happy to send in a good review. As it is now, given my experience, they probably will not post this review.
Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for any difficulty you experienced. We were happy to assist you with your warranty replacement and hope all is working well now.

We just bought two of these cameras and found them easy to setup.
Unfortunately they will only work in conjunction with proprietary browser extensions for Windows/Internet Explorer or Mac OS/Safari.
They will not work with *standard* browsers (such as Firefox or Chrome) or other operating systems. :-(
We bought the 4 camera wireless security system for the business and very happy with this product. First we where amazed how far the transmitters works 2 of our cameras sitting over 150 yards from the transmitter and it is very convenient to be able to watch the place 24/7 on any device (computer, phone or tablet).

I ordered this camera through Home Depot. I've had it now for a week and have spent about eight hours over a period of three days trying to get it to work properly. The software needs to be more intuitive and user friendly. I want to monitor a door entry on the side of the house and have the camera record any activity to the SD Card. Unfortunately, the sensitivity for the motion detection is either too sensitive or non existent. If I use the IR detection, it will not record my presence even though I'm only standing 10 ft. from the camera. Today, I went to check on the camera and it had disconnected from all my devices. I've not been able to reconnect. These are the features that prompted me to buy this camera but if they don't work then I consider it useless and unreliable. That being said I'm only giving this product a one star rating. I don't know if it's a problem with the software or the camera, but it shouldn't be this difficult. I'm returning it for a full refund.
If anyone is experiencing similar difficulties, please contact our technical support team and they would be happy to assist you. They can be reached from Monday to Saturday, 9:00 am - 10:00 pm. at 1-888-425-6739.
Bought this for the specific task of being able to see if something was going on the previous night. I wasn't ready to drop money for a whole security system. The L-play software works fine for playback and viewing. Software leaves much more to be desired, but for my application it works. A few updates to L-Play would help such as being able to define recording areas (I don't really need every single possible car coming through). I can access the camera via IP, but downloading individual files from the SD card is a pain. Lorex needs to get some people to develop an easier way or move the camera to a more updated system.
I'm docking points for the terrible updating on the mobile platforms, specifically Android (since that's what I use). A announcement saying that this doesn't work with the newest android came out months ago, and I have yet to see or hear back anything about it. One main advantage I was suppose to have was to review things (playback) on a mobile device, which doesn't work. The remote live viewing works though with some hiccups. Overall it works, but leaves a lot to desire.
On the positive, the Ethernet cable (PoE possible) can be routed through the camera mount. This allows you to install it only having to route 1 wire since it comes with a PoE adapter. Adjusting the camera is easy with a screwdriver and app (to see where it's pointing), and hasn't shifted unless told otherwise so far. My camera is not directly in the sun, so I cannot comment on how it is in direct sunlight all day. Nightvision comes with some compromises, but I can make out details out. All the setting I have are a little above default (a little brighter, a little more motion sensitive) and once you find the settings that work, I'd stick with them.
Giving it a 2 because it WORKS for me, but that's the most I can say about it.

I bought it for testing, but I prefer Samsung SmartCam
The product seems to work as well as can be expected. Hookup was relatively easy. I expect to be very satisfied as time goes on.
I was a bit disappointed that I was unable to track the status of my order. I never received an email that the product was shipped and was concerned that it would arrive late for my needs (I paid extra for quicker shipping) but ultimately it did arrive on time.
Camera works very well. It was easy to install and get connected to the wifi.
Camera works when close to wifi and needs a strong signal. I've had a difficult time getting responsive support to get this working. The responses were superficial and of no help. I would not recommend this company for the novice.

Camera was fairly easy to connect to my 2nd generation ipad. So far it's working flawlessly. Had some trouble resetting the (mandatory) initial password but got it resolved.

The camera had a very nice picture and worked on both wired and wireless. I have had the camera 10 days. Sometime during the last week it stopped connecting to the network. It tries every 15 seconds but fails, neither wired nor wireless would work even after factory reset. The camera never left my office, I had not had an opportunity to install it outside where I plan to use it.
Lorex is forwarding a replacement, no cost, I will update after I have seen how that one works for a while.
Thus far solid camera with good day and night vision. Range has been ok but little suprised how fast it drops compared to other devices. Works as advertised with the remote view L View and iphone app. Had to drop one of the video quality settings even though I was on the same network since the picture would cut out. Seems to work fine. Wish there were a couple extra options which came with the camera like remote ddns and being able to schedule ftp upload or email based on a determined time period vs. just motion

This is my third LNC226 and I have been very pleased with the video quality and ease of set up. We are frequently away from home and my cameras provide a sense of security and comfort not available from a "blind" security system. Hope to add more cameras in the near future.

With the addition of another LNC226 I now have six cameras on my system, 3 LNC216 and 3 LNC226. Have the LNC226 now on Ethernet due to router distance and Aluminum siding causing a weak signal. With that there is no issue having 3 LNC216 on Wi-Fi and 3 LNC226 cameras on Ethernet using my iPad. Ping for my iOad only has room to display 6 cameras so if I needed more cameras I would have to cycle those into view by dropping other(s) from view. Six cameras are all I need.

very nice picture both in dan and night mode. We purchased for family members to view the property when no at home but are having a hard time getting it set up to view remotely using browsers for several family members who have chromebooks and one uses Linux. This product likes to use Windows, Macs or Android using there own program/app. We are continuing to fight the setup proccess with the help of Lorex Tech Support who have been responsive.
Got this product in the mail and after following the instructions, the camera does not turn on, no lights, sounds, nothing from this thing. Won't connect over ethernet either. Called tech support and this non-english speaking lady said "yeah thats a problem."
They made me call Customer Service with a ticket number and after being on hold for 17.5 minutes they finally answered and explained to me that because they sent me a bad product I have to pay to ship it back to them for replacement.
Great picture easy installmand set up!!!!
