From the Manufacturer
TRENDnet’s Wireless Day/Night Cloud Camera, model TV-IP751WIC, takes the work out of viewing video over the internet. Previously to view video remotely, users needed to perform many complicated and time consuming steps: such as signing up for a third party dynamic IP service and reconfiguring their router. The TRENDnet Cloud service removes all of these complicated steps. Users simply open a web browser and log into the TRENDnet Cloud with their unique password to view and manage this camera. A free App for mobile devices brings live video to smart phones and tablets. Record crisp video in complete darkness for distances of up to 7.5m. Wireless n technology connects the camera to a wireless network and provides unsurpassed wireless coverage and improved streaming video quality. Add this camera to your wireless network at the touch of a button with Wi-Fi Protected Setup, WPS. The TV-IP751WIC offers 640x480, VGA video at up to 20 frames per second, fps, one-way audio, motion detection recording, scheduled recordings, email alerts, date and time overlay, and four times digital zoom. A wall/ceiling mounting kit is included and the camera’s off white housing blends into most environments.

The camera housing is fairly well designed, the stand is terrible though. just a simple piece of stamped metal, does have a nice finish though. There is no place to strain relief the power cord.
There is a fairly loud audible click when the camera switches to night mode, apparently switching in a IR filter. While the click can be annoying, it does seem to greatly improve the night vision compared to cameras that don't have this feature.
The focal length is a little short and there is a manual focus dial on the front. Unfortunately it is very low profile so you have to kind of push on the lens end to turn it. This causes two problems, your fingers get in the way of seeing if it is in focus and when you let go the focus changes a bit so it is tricky to get it just right.
The details to access the camera are conveniently located on the back of the camera so you never loose it, as well as an additional sticker you can use without staring at the back of an installed camera. I put it on the power supply.
You can access the camera through the cloud but you can also access directly on your LAN - THANK YOU! seems other cloud cameras I have used force all video through their servers to lock ou into paying for service. Since TRENDnet offers cloud free they didn't have this concern and make it easy to just pop in the IP and go directly to the camera on your own network.
Maybe I missed the obvious or it is buried somewhere on the CD (no I did not read the full manual). The default user:password was nowhere to be found. Google to the rescue, it is admin:admin.
Another downer was the lack of browser support. Using my up to date favorite browser I was greeted with this message:
The current browser version you are using (Google Chrome 26.0.1410.65) may not be supported by the TRENDnet Cloud service. Mobile device supported by the TRENDnet CloudView mobile app, not by browser. The following MAC (except IE) and Windows browsers are supported:
Firefox: up to 20.0
Google Chrome: up to 25.0
Safari: up to 6.0
Registration is not as easy as it should be. You click registration in the camera interface and then you go to the TRENDnet website where you again have to click to register and then fill in all the camera details including model number, serial, etc. This data could easily be passed from the camera link, but if not at least give me a screen on the camera I can copy and paste from!
Bottom line, there are some non technical details that are too complicated, but the technical stuff is super easy. Anyone can set this camera up, but a big font pictorial of the set up process with steps 1,2,3 would be a great addition.
Now I turned on Audio, and there were those loud static sounds that others have found in their cameras. Nash, today, after we got the camera up and going from start again ( that means with the Ethernet cable) He said just disable it. I'm wondering why on a new camera I have to just disable one of the functions simply because it does not work like it's supposed to.
Anyway, Nash promised he'd consult his superiors and call me back. Waiting.
Well, for now I have my camera up and viewing out the window to the ocean, the audio is turned off, and I'm exhausted from being consumed by the set up for three mornings.
I love Amazon and put a lot of stock in reading the reviews, so I felt duty bound to write of my experience with the IP 751 WIC. I would like to try the pan and tilt for a second camera to point to the intracoastal water view.
Oh, by the way the phone app was the easiest to install on Android and works perfectly.
The great thing though that must be stressed, as opposed to other cameras, you do have the greatest tech support for these cameras that you can imagine. They patiently stay with you the whole way. If they get the static in the audio corrected, it would be an OK camera for the money.
IR is perfect at night.
I use my iPhone to check on things at home and never had a problem connecting.
I highly recommend this product.
