Review for prohd outdoor poe bullet ip security

Price was $69.99. Been looking at an inexpensive high quality hd poe camera that's easy to install ( for a novice. Me). This was it. Blown away by how clear and sharp it is.

Introduction

I'm very satisfied with this product. It installed easily through a powered connection to my home network. I used pc software called blue iris to interact with the camera (video recording, photo snapshots, trigger on events). The camera views a large room and had the sensitivity to trigger on small movements at the far end of the room. Night vision was a good feature. I'm happy with this purchase.

Amcrest prohd outdoor 1080p poe bullet ip security camera - ip67 weatherproof, 1080p 1920 tvl , ip2m-842e white Review (ip2m 842ew)

I had a little difficulty setting it up but i called customer service and they answered right away and were very friendly and helpful. (my problems were the password on the app defaults to "admin" then when you are logged in they ask you to change the password. But it was blank so i started out thinking they wanted me to create a password. I didn't know i was supposed to put admin in there at first. Maybe that was in the instructions which i didn't read and they will probably change that to a better system after i write this so read your instructions before you use the app). App works great, cloud works great, the actual camera is very well made. Other things i didn't get is i couldn't connect the camera by wifi to see it on the amcrest website, called customer service, they said try the ethernet cord that is provided and that worked. Also i thought it would record 4 hours to the cloud for free and then over-ride the four hours and start again. But no, they provide one 4 hour block of free cloud service just so you can test out the cloud service and see if it works. You can't have any actual cloud service without paying starting at $6 a month. Which is not that expensive. So i bought it. And it works beautifully. I bought this camera for home security and the beauty of it is that if a scoundrel steals the camera, ha, it's too late they are already in the cloud! . This camera was the perfect solution to my security problems and i highly recommend it. All the problems i had were just little glitches setting it up but the camera, the app, the cloud service, customer service are all 5 stars. Once it is set up you can easily move it, say from the front porch to the family room if you want it to watch a pet for the day then easily put it back on the porch for nighttime security. -.

PROS
  • I bought three of these and connected them to a tenda tef1105p poe switch. I'm using blue iris software to record and monitor. I have three other types of cameras on my system and these are the best so far. I really like that they include a waterproof connector for your cable. Very clear picture and the nightvision is awesome. Every other ir camera i've used has limited nightvision area and they're basically useless at night except directly in front of the camera. These really light up a good area around the camera. You can't view the live video without a plugin, which means you're pretty much limited to internet explorer if you want to view the live feed directly from the camera. I don't know why so many cameras make that mistake, but using blue iris or your phone works great. Tinycam pro can see the live feed from the camera and from blue iris also.
  • These cameras are great! picture quality is excellent and setup was a breeze. Paired with poe switch makes wiring clean and easy. I bought 6 of these paired with an amcrest nvr.
CONS
  • Good quality, solid camera. I do seem to have issues with it freezing up if i use it in the 1080p mode though. It works for me since my nvr is 720p.
  • Only 2 megapixel, serves more as a deterrent than actually useful. Cannot read a license plate from 30 feet away
  • Good picture and works well with blue iris. Quit responding after 6 weeks though. Problem turned out to be corrosion on the contacts with the ethernet wire. It's working again after a good cleaning on both the wire and the contacts but i expect it will fail again.

I had purchased an off brand system and my installer advised me to check on an amcrest system instead. Easy set up and good product support. The picture quality is perfect and using a mobile device to view system is really easy.

Click to see NoticeAmcrest Outdoor Bullet Security Camera (ip2m 842ew)"This camera is a great addition to my home monitoring setup. It was very easy to install (using the template provided to locate & drill holes), and when i plugged it into my trendnet poe switch it immediately powered up and i was able to configure it and set it up with my network & security system. It works without a hitch with blue iris, which is what i use to manage all my ip cameras (and the same can be said for all of the amcrest ip cameras i've tried & use). The field of view on this camera is spectacular - i have it semi-inside, it's mounted above the entry door in my 2-car garage, and it's able to cover the entire garage plus get a good view of anyone entering or exiting any of the entry doors. Because of its location, i'm not using it where range is an issue, but for the range in question ( 20ft) the picture is great - more than good enough to recognize a face, read a license plate, etc. It's fully and easily adjustable, which is nice when you're up on a ladder with cell phone in one hand (looking at the camera view) and using the other to aim the camera. The only feature this one is missing is a vandal-proof dome - if they'd had that on this camera i'd have another one of these surveilling the driveway outside. But that's a very minor nitpick - for my needs this camera is perfect, and i would recommend it without reservation."

(0) Question: What kind of poe its supported , what is the voltage of the poe , can you recommend a good poe ?


(1) Question: Is a splitter needed to connect the camera?


(2) Question: Does it have motor to pan and tilt or you have to turn it manually by hand?

- L. DianaThe only realistic complaint i have is the native dos like interface. It's not real intuitive but it serves it's purpose (thus far). It works well with it's branded (amcrest) cameras, appears to work fine with my dahua camera but simply won't work with my hikvision (which is apparently not following the onvif standard interface); this will be a pricey throwaway. It would have been nice if there was a manual configuration mechanism in the amcrest software that would permit me to code access but such is life; i'll live with and follow in the future with onvif 2. 4 compatible or better cameras. However, on the bright side, there is a desktop application that permits you to effectively bypass that dos looking native interface. If you have a large investment in cameras already, make sure they are onvif compatible before you invest in this nvr (or make the decision to upgrade to that compatibility. . *edit* the nvr is a specialized computer and the language it uses may not (especially in my case) be clearly understood. I need to correct my statement about not working with my hikvision camera. It does work! it's not perfect but the nvr displays, records motion and performs everything i needed it to do. I can always simply log into the camera directly and "configure" those odd elements if the need arises. I increased this rating from 4 to 5 stars and will not give demerits for that "dos" like interface; the demerit belongs to me for not "thinking" clearly while reading the instructions. For those that use any non-amcrest cameras on their system, if your camera says it's onvif compatible, select that name (onvif) from the manufacturer's list when you manually add the camera; it's easy to miss and that choice registered my camera properly. Thanks. . * update *. After a month of activity, my system is working just fine. It took quite awhile for me to figure out how to "configure" the system to record events only. You can use desktop software to review those events stored on the nvr. You can also export those recordings in either the native format or avi. However, the avi format is very poor quality, at least in my situation. Fortunately, there is a viewer automatically downloaded with that export that will permit native format viewing but any 3rd party (e. G. Police) receiving that file may take exception to or be nervous about launching an unknown executable file; i know i was. . Finally, this product is highly technical and requires quite a lot of patience. If your experience is limited to opening emails and web sites, you may want to consider finding someone to help you set this up.

Easy to setup. The only reason i gave it four instead of a five was the price, which with the hard drive was close to 250. 00. Also this unit doesn't have a alarm.

Amcrest Nv2108e 8 Channel Network Recorder (Surveilance Systems) FAQ.

I purchased my amcrest nvr / camera set back in april i beleive. I tried to set it up my self and failed. I called amcrest support for help and at first had a bad experience with trying to get any attention from them over via text talk. They kept leaving me hanging for as much as 15 minutes. Passing me around to different guys. I then realized that i must be talking to salesmen. After leaving a nasty message and giving up shortly there after i got a email from amcrest more specifically a woman named christine banks who could not have been nicer and of so much help very atentive and never let me go until she knew i was satisfied. Always following up and checking to see if things were still good. You see i work during the day and couldn't bring my equipment with me so this took several days of her having to deal with my schedule. Finally we got my issue resolved and i could be happier with my purchase. Works flawlessly. Thank you christine! -Notice from P. Guest, Victoria

Not too bad to set up. The interface is fairly easy and their is pretty good documentation online, but you will probably have to refer to it - got it working after a few hours of tinkering.

- L. JuliaI bought this device and a "amcrest 4 megapixel ip4m-1025e" to test out the system's capabilities. The setup was surprisingly easy but the documentation is pretty much useless. I basically just started guessing at how to set it up and it was pretty straight forward. Now, that being said, i am fairly tech savvy, so i felt pretty confident in my guess work. . Here is what (in my opinion) you need to know how to do to be successful with this device:. . 1. Know how to install a hdd. It's not complicated, but the instructions do not explain how to install a hard drive (not included, by the way. You must buy your own). If you have ever installed a hdd in a computer, you should be fine. If you haven't, you can probably figure it out with 10 minutes of google. . 2. Know how to set up a router and/or networking switch. Again, this isn't something that's particular difficult but if you don't have much experience with configuring routers and/or networking switches it can have a bit of a learning curve. . 3. Have a general concept of what power over ethernet (poe) is. You don't need to understand anything about poe, but having a basic idea that it exists and what it does will help. . If you feel pretty confident in your ability to do these two things, you should be fine. That's not to say you can't figure it out if you don't know how to do these things, but it will help. . Here's the basic steps to set this up. . 1. Install your hdd (standard 3. 5" drive). I recommend wd purple, but any 3. 5" sata drive should work. 2. Plug your poe camera into one of the camera rj-45 ports. You don't have to use a poe camera, but it's going to make your life a lot easier because you won't need to run a separate power supply to the camera. 3. Plug the nvr into your router using ethernet (make sure you don't accidentally plug into one of the camera poe ports). 4. Plug the nvr into a monitor using rgb / hdmi. 5. Plug the included usb mouse into the nvr. 6. Plug the nvr into the power brick. 7. Follow the relatively simple on screen instructions. 8. Watch / record your security videos. . Once you get the initial set up done, you no longer need the monitor and can log it via a web browser. Just a note, it's a bit wonky and i have to fairly regularly exit and reload the page. But, it's pretty straight forward, not much to it to be honest. . Other than that, that's basically it. Like i said, it was actually surprisingly easy to set up. . Last note - the system seems to record about 500 mb / hour / megapixel. So, the camera i am testing is 4 mp, meaning that it will record approximately 2 gb of data per hour. I will test this some more when the 2 mp camera i ordered comes in. My assumption is the 2 mp camera will use half as much data as the 4 mp.

Bought this nvr for my indoor cameras, works as expected. There is a lots of option that might me missed by many people like me who are not tech savy . Last week i called support for helping me setup remote access for the nvr. Jason was the tech guy i talked with, very patient and helpful. This is a recommended product

Amcrest Hdseries Outdoor Megapixel Security (ipm 743es) FAQ.

I lost three foscam ip cameras from a very bad thunderstorm, which also took out my tv. My next project will be a whole house surge protector any way i was using foscam but thought i would give this brand a try. These are small poe security camera. Picture is very clear, night vision is good and works with my blue iris software. I will be changing to this brand from the foscam i was using, i have already installed 2 of the 3 megapixel cameras and the video is great. -Notice from . Guest, Northumberland

I needed a fixed ip camera to keep an eye on a specific area adjacent to my house. The price was really good on the amcrest and it has good specs, so i bought one. It arrived much faster than i expected (maybe a couple of business days). The packaging and instructions were really good as well. . The installation was very easy. I used 50' of cat5e and a poe injector. Accessing the camera settings is simple using the cameras ip address via the browser (there is a cd provided but i didn't need or use it). Lots of functionality is provided in the firmware built into the camera. I use blueiris however, and "adding" the amcrest camera to bi was quick and without issue. . The construction of the camera is solid and the video is good or better than i expected. It's a great deal at the price, thanks amcrest!

Amcrest-hdseries-outdoor-megapixel-security-(ipm-743es) set picture

- . PaigeI bought two of these cameras thinking they would work with the poe secondary port on my ubiquiti nsm5 wireless network extenders. . They don't. These need 802. 3af poe at 12v while the nsm5 only supplies "passive 24v poe". So i bought the amcrest injectors and the first one i've tried worked right away. . But. As i already found with an amcrest hd pro ptz camera, their attempts to provide "easy" support range from horrible to pitiful. The iphone app assumes a number of things that were not true in my case but i was finally able to add cameras manually. At that point it showed a button for "live priview (sic)". See attached screenshot. Sigh. . A critical tools is the ip config application for windows (i installed without problems on windows xp, 7 and 10). It scans your network and tells you at what ip address the camera is on your lan. It also provides a view of the camera signal and limited ability to set parameters. . You can also just connect with a web browser once you know the ip. I used both chrome and internet explorer 11. . With chrome, you download the "amcrest web view" chrome "app". You can place an icon on the desktop to use it. You cannot just go to the camera in a normal browser tab. . With ie, there is an active x plug-in that is not properly signed so you have to jump through some hoops to install it and then let it run. Once it is installed, you can view the camera directly in ie. . I changed the default port on each camera and added mapping through my router to allow easy external access. . I also added cameras to the ios app "livecams pro" which already had two panasonic, and 8 foscam cameras installed. There was no problem there.

Update: i've now owned this for 2 years, the price has dropped from $70 list to $60. Its run ok through a couple of summers and winters. I noticed the change in image quality as i moved from 720 p to this generation of 960p/1. 3 megapixel camera. Right now i can't see the point of going to any greater resolution - the current picture is good and higher quality would presumably lead to larger files (some of my cameras are at a camp on a dsl line - bandwith limited). I now have a couple of poe cameras at home so i've upgraded to a gigabit switch with poe built in (it was a deal) at home and sent all the poe injectors off to camp. I still very much prefer the poe cameras, at least for outside, since finding a nearby power outlet is more of a pain than running ethernet cable. . This is an initial review for the ipm-743es from amcrest. This version is power over ethernet. There appears to be an option to run the camera off a power converter (12v) but there is no power pack with the camera. You are also on your own for finding a power injector. I bought a. 'tp-link tl-poe150s gigabit poe injector adapter, ieee 802. 3af compliant' off online store open box adding $13 to total cost. The injector is rated at 48v (looks like this is a standard - higher voltage means less transmission loss) and the camera takes care of any needed voltage conversion (mine hasn't fried so far). Those items are details that you need to be aware of to avoid frustration. . I have the camera running in a very basic mode, just to burn in. They have a camera look up utility and fyi the foscam ip tool did not find the amcrest camera. The picture is looking good and i think the ir cut in at low level - its still running in color if you care, there is a software toggle to monochrome. . Overall this looks like a reasonable buy, just be aware of the power options and that there is some frustration over the set-up not being the same as for foscam cameras (i have four of those). Also note that on the software side then pumping the signal into blueiris available from online store and foscam makes management easier and is needed to make the cameras tools rather than toys. I think that power over ethernet is going to help me in positioning the camera the way i want - which is away from any power sockets (the poe standard is prolly based on 100 meters max - its sold here as for upto 328ft). I prefer cabled cameras since then i don't have to worry about the wireless handshake, with the poe unit i will have the one cable to run. . Added note: if you have set up problems then call the support line and probably have them do remote set up. The documentation/guides are abysmal. Sometimes one can't tell if one did something wrong or if some steps have been skipped/omitted. And there are details like the poe guide says reset to factory std by twisting a couple of trailing wires . But actually one has to screw off the front of the camera and short across a couple of contacts. Phone works better than email. However to me it was frustrating to go the support line route as it does not lead to experience applicable to the next set up.

- C. KellyThis cam has a wide field of view(fov) compare with other internet cams, which is good. For a cam with wide fov, the objects appear small; while for narrower fov cam, the objects appears larger. So to make motion detect work for this cam, you need to adjust the sensitivity higher.

The camera works extremely well. I had some questions about how to connet this camrea to the ncr and i contacted amcrest. Jay mills helped me. He was very professional and patient.

- C. MableI have a 4mp camera and have been using these cameras for a while in my home. Cameras works great. Live view works perfectly in my computer. Cliff hoyer from amcrest support helped me in setting up my cameras in my nvr and made the motion detection up and running and solved the harddisk issue

Easy to add hard disk, set up through monitor and seems to work as expected.

Amcrest ProHD Outdoor 3 Megapixel POE Bullet IP Security Camera - IP67 Weatherproof, 3MP 2048 TVL , IP3M-954E White

 got this little gem six days ago from online store. I had it out of the box and working indoors in less than 15 minutes. The most difficulty i had was that i didn't remember to write down my password and then to find the reset button. The reset isn't really very noticeable. Once i reset, i did the process over again with my phone and voila! the qr scan for the code worked perfect. Once we drilled the hole through the wall, it was fairly simple to run the cord from the camera through. The camera has about 8 inches of cat6 (female) and a plug in case you don't use poe. You still need the male cat6 to go from the camera plug to the injector. The injector did not come with any cat6 either, so i purchased a 10 ft length to go from the injector to my verizon box. I had played with the camera before installing outside on the wall so i was very familiar with how to tilt it to the angle i needed and then rotate the lens so the picture wasn't sideways or upside down. The night vision isn't what i had hoped. It's ok if i know the people and cars that are in the pictures. But i am having a stalker problem, driving by my home. The police need it on film/pic, his car. Even zooming in is not going to work, and even getting a tag number on my own vehicle at night is virtually impossible, even at the closest distance. So that's going to be impossible with this camera. Daytime video is excellent and then some. At dusk, i can at least determine make and model of vehicle. The video i included is actually at night, midnight, and looks to me to be a cop because of the security light. I also must say that the motion trigger turns on the camera before that person/car etc is even in view! i am using the amcrest cloud, saving only 7 days of video. I am also using amcrest view and amcrest cloud on my android phone and have had no issues what so ever. I have used both apps while at the grocery store, the mall, and while on the road, no issues. The issue other folks may have with the email alerts, i just made a gmail address specifically for my camera. Otherwise my regular email address would be filled up! i think this will be most useful for when i am out of town. It's easier for me to check the cloud the next day, and review each event. I am seriously considering another camera, the bullet style. Putting this one out back to view my porch and front door. The max length of cat6, the company told me, is 300 ft. That's a nice distance for those that don't want to hard wire or don't have an outlet handy. Besides, wireless can be a fickle thing sometimes. I also had to purchase the injector, and went with the tplink, as i have verizon and my box did not support poe. Having never had a security camera before, maybe i was expecting too much. Total install 30 minutes. I spent more time just playing with the software. I highly recommend this camera, based on ease of installation and use. I only gave four stars because i was hoping much better for night vision. My kindle does not support their software.

Amcrest Outdoor Megapixel Bullet Security (ip3m 954ew) FAQ.

I just unboxed the camera, setup took about 10 min (some basic network knowledge and casually reading through all the settings). The box contains only the camera, mounting screws, and documentation on mini disk. Amcrest made a welcome change i have been hoping for. They now include a weatherproofing fitting for the ethernet connection, although you must put an unfinished ethernet cable through the weatherproof connector 1st and then terminate it with a plug, so make sure you have the proper tools if you planning to use it) ! as expected the web interface for the camera is much improved over some similar foscam models i have. Also plays rather well with blueiris (though camera is so new it doesn't yet have its own model listing in blue iris 2/22/16), but does work ok with the amcrest/prohd 1080p setting (which the camera still displays at full resolution higher than 1080p). Overall i am very pleased with the improvements, especially for the price. I will update after a few months if something changes. . There aren't clear instructions for how to assemble the weatherproof connector, but 1st you take the main body of the connector and place the little rubber cylinder with the rib facing inwards toward the connector into the end with the plastic "fingers" protruding. Then you run your unfinished ethernet cable through the connector nut and through the rubber cylinder/main body assembly, then you terminate your cable with a plug (8p8c or known commonly as an "rj45 plug"). Lastly place the large rubber o-ring around the female ethernet port from the camera, with the chamfer facing toward the main body or the connector, plug in the cable, screw it all together and done! (check photos). . Note: since this is a poe camera, for safety it is wise to ensure your ethernet cables are solid copper and at least 24 awg. -Notice from O. Brendon, Alabama

I love amcrest cameras and they are my current favorite. I would find it hard to find a better camera at the price. I have many various models in use and they are rock solid. One of which, but not the one being reviewed, has been exposed to direct sun in 100 degree plus temperatures and occasional hard rain. I recommend amcrest to everyone. . As far as this camera, i only give it four stars because i only like it and not love it. What i don't love:. . (1) the vandal proof dome is an annoyance. In order to not have the ir light reflect off the dome is to have a rubber grommet around the lense that makes contact with the dome. The first time i got the view i wanted i put on the dome and didn't realize it caught against the grommet. This caused it to move the lense from the view i wanted. I only discovered this after screwing on the dome. This was extremely annoying since the camera was mounted high and it takes a little while to turn those screws with the custom wrench. I later decided i would like to change the angle of the camera, but i have not done so because of the dome. I prefer the similar 1080p model without a dome cover (amcrest prohd outdoor 1080p poe dome ip security camera - ip67 weatherproof, 1080p (1920 tvl), ip2m-844e (white)). . (2) it's 3mp but only at 20 frames per second (fps). This did not work well on my porch since it would not catch someone on video that walked up quickly and then walked away due to the limited area of view. It may work okay for monitoring a large area, but not a close/limited field of view. I dropped it to 1080p and increased that to 1080p. Again, i would have preferred the cheaper ip2m-844e. Even better, i would have preferred a camera with much wider field of view. This model has a 81 degree field of view and the ip2m-844e is 93 degrees. This camera would have likely worked better if i could catch people coming straight at it, but i am getting them from above after they walk into a very limited area. . This camera may have it's uses, but it clearly is not the best camera for my use.

- H. Olga amcrest has really been branching out recently and unfortunately some of their newer products have been getting mixed reviews on online store due to uninformed consumers. This prohd line is what i would call a prosumer line of products it s a topshelf consumer product packed full of features normally found on more expensive enterprise equipment. Take some time to do some proper research and you ll be able to understand why some of these cameras are getting undeserved negative reviews. You ll also be able to appreciate the truly awesome products amcrest is putting out. . This camera has a rich feature set including a sony imx322 image sensor, ambarella s2lm chipset, and ip66 weatherproofing (can handle some massive downpours and dust storms but you re not going to want to take it scuba diving. Be sure you use the included ethernet weatherproofing if you re installing it outside! ). . First thing you need to know is that this camera does not include a power adapter to plug in to your wall. This camera is intended to be powered by what s called poe (power over ethernet which i ll explain shortly). There is a socket on the camera to utilize an ac - dc adapter (12v 2a), but you will need to provide your own adapter if you wish to directly power the camera utilizing an ac wall outlet (it is worth noting that the dc power socket on the camera does not include weather-proofing while the ethernet socket does). . This camera is what is called poe which stands for power over ethernet. If you re a little bit tech-savvy and know what you re doing, this makes installing and maintaining a camera network extremely convenient! if you re not tech savvy and you order a standalone poe camera, it s a bit of a recipe for disaster. This is not a plug and play camera. What makes poe convenient is that the power is delivered to the camera through the same cable that carries the network and video signals. This is different from other types of cameras that can require multiple cables. The downside is that the overwhelming majority of consumer networking products do not support poe. What s that mean? it means if you just plug this camera into your home router it s probably not going to work, because it won t be getting any power! . . There are a number of different ways to deliver power to the camera: if you have a poe compatible nvr (network video recorder), a poe compatible network switch added to your network, or a poe compatible router (chances are that router you bought at best buy or the one at&t gave you when they installed your internet is not poe compatible). Alternatively, you can supply power directly to the camera as i described above and then connect it to your network using an ethernet cable to run the video and network feed. Probably the most common option to power a handful of cameras would be to buy what is called a poe injector which will plug in to your wall and then power the ethernet cable to run to the camera. . The camera comes with a quick start guide and there are a number of different options to get the camera up and running, as well as a number of different options to view and access the camera once it s up and running. This is another area where amcrest has been reaping some unfortunate negative reviews. It extremely difficult to make software that attempts to make things easy and automatic for the user because there are some many different variables in the user environment, things don t always go as they should. An advanced user can usually go in and figure out what went wrong and tweak it on their own, while the non-advanced user is left wondering what went wrong it was supposed to work on its own! just remember microsoft s plug and play which computer techs used to refer to as plug and pray because it failed so often! . . Thankfully amcrest has offered multiple ways to set up and access the cameras. I ve never had to use their support because i ve been able to figure stuff out on my own, but i ve read that they have stellar customer support give them a ring if you re having trouble! . . The image quality on these units is stellar. The resolution allows for a truly useful digital zoom on most monitors since the resolution exceeds most consumer monitors. The camera housing itself seems solidly constructed. Nearly every component of the housing is comprised of metal. The articulation arm feels built like a tank. It took me a minute to figure out how to control the yaw loosen the adjustment screw a little extra and you ll be able to crank the yaw around the base with a very satisfying click of each angle before you lock it back in to place. . Overall i am quite pleased with the function and quality of this camera. I can see how some may have run into issues with setup, installation, and maintaining usage, but if you have the know-how, this camera offers excellent quality in a solidly-constructed housing. . I provided an honest and unbiased review of this product and the manufacturer/seller was kind enough to provide me a monetary discount. I strive to stand by the "honest and unbiased" goal. I will always point out what i deem to be negative aspects of the product, and ding stars accordingly. I'm just a regular dude that likes to write and geek out on tech projects.

I had a foscam ip camera that was 3 years old and continually having to be physically rebooted (unplug, replug, reboot), so i upgraded and went with a poe and nvr setup. This camera works much better than my old foscam and it was a significant upgrade as far as resolution and ease of getting electricity to the camera so i am happy with that. I work with computers so i was able to get my poe, nvr, and poe switch set-up eventually, but it is not for the faint of heart. The software for the camera and nvr is beyond terrible (it's the same software for the camera and nvr). It is worse than the old foscam software and i thought that was terrible. To say it is not intuitive is an understatement. The instructions make no sense. Getting the nvr to recognize the camera took multiple reboots. The amcrest nvr does not even list its own amcrest cameras in the pull-down camera selector. My laptop was so horrified by the security issues in the software i had to create an exception to allow the pages to load and the gui looks like it was built by a high school kid in 1998. I knew that for the price it would not be awesome software but wow. This is amazingly bad. They've added a lot of variables and "functionality" to the software that just add to the confusion and most don't work exactly how you would think. It took me about a week of working on the setup and the software a little bit every day to get it to do what i wanted (record motion to the nvr and send motion-triggered images to my email) but i think i have it working well enough. So at the moment i am happy enough with the camera but i would not recommend it for someone who has not worked with terrible software before or who wants a camera up and running immediately.

Amcrest Ethernet Optional Recording Ip2m 841eb (Surveilance Systems) FAQ.

We purchased five of these to replace old panasonic cameras which would no longer send e-mail within the requirements of our new isp. One month later, a burglar broke into our house in broad daylight while i was in the basement and robbed us of valuables. These cameras were positioned to cover everything on the first floor except for the bedrooms and bathrooms and, consequently, we had more or less a movie of the whole thing and the burglar, who was on parole at the time of the break-in, is going to prison, not reform school. . These are good cameras but the purpose of this review is not so much to recommend them (which we do) but to demonstrate the value of having security cameras in your house. When the burglar pawned a portion of the loot, the pawn broker, as required by law in my state, took a picture of his driver's license and entered the details of the transaction on a special website that is accessible only to police and pawn brokers. The police routinely scan that website and they recognized the item that was pawned as matching our stolen property description. They then matched the driver's license picture of the guy with the video of the break-in, thus giving them positive identification and insuring a conviction. The police put a hold on the pawned items and we will get them back after all the dust settles. The rest of it is lost but the value of the retrieved items approximates the amount we had invested in both these cameras and the old panasonics. -Notice from D. Megan, Waltham Forest

I searched a few before i bought this. I wanted a reasonable webcam to put in an owl box. This works great. I teamed it with a tp-link poe injector and a tp-link powerline network extender. I put my outdoor plug in a 10 x 10 pvc box, plugged in the powerline extender inside the house (to connect the ethernet wire from the router) and 1 in the box outside. I connected a small ethernet wire from that to the poe injector. I ran the wire in pvc from the poe injector 100 feet out the yard and up the pole to the camera. Pics are daylight view and night infrared view. The app works perfect on my iphone 6s. Can view it from anywhere.

- K. MedinaCamera was easy enough to set up. I assigned it a static ip on my router, used the ip config software from amcrest's website to log into the camera and change the password, and followed a guide by amcrest to get up and running on blue iris. . Image quality is good and pan/tilt is working fine through blue iris. Night vision is adequate for the small room i have it located in. . Only encountered two minor issues. Firstly, the microphone and speaker are a bit underwhelming. The built in microphone won't detect sounds under a certain decibel point and even when hooking external speakers up to the camera the sound quality leaves much to be desired. Everything comes through with large amounts of static. It's possible this is a configuration issue on my end and at this price point not much of bother to me anyways. . The other issue has been setting up preset pan/tilt locations in blue iris. I can configure them easily enough but when going back and forth between them they start shifting to new locations almost immediately. Not sure if this the servo's in the camera not being accurate enough or again an issue with my setup. Not an issue for me since i'm using this camera in a static position, but if you are purchasing with the intent to scan over an area on a loop be aware. . Despite the minor grievances you probably won't find much else better at this price point with the included features.

The amcrest prohd 1080p poe is a solid camera for it's price point. The camera has a great picture and the motor for the motion is smooth and quiet. The install for the first unit can be a little challenging due to the sparse manual; i managed to integrate it with my synology dvr under 30 minutes. . This one is installed inverted on the ceiling and it provides full coverage for the large room. The orientation can be changed in the admin screen; remember it hit save! the admin tool also configures the motion detection periods. . I recommend you plan out the install before you permanently place the cameras. I got everything working locally in my office with a just the supplied amcrest applications. I then integrated them into my synology san unit which required a few installs. Finally i configured remote access manual since i don't use dnlp for security reasons. Once remote access via browser was working, i then played with several mobile apps including amcrest view (non-pro) which will meet most of your beeds. . With support for power over ethernet, a single ethernet cable will provide data and power for the device. If your network switch doesn't have the required poe injector, i would recommend the unit from texas wifi. I ran a single ethernet cable to a closet with access to power to support an 8-port switch and the injector. All of the cameras are wired back to this area keeping the install neat, out of the way, and easily expanded.

Amcrest ProHD Outdoor 3 Megapixel POE Vandal Dome IP Security Camera - IP67 Weatherproof, IK10 Vandal-Proof, 3MP 2048 TVL , IP3M-956E White

The ip3m-956e is a pretty nice camera . It works with zoneminder if that is how you want to hook it up. I have not gotten it mounted outside yet so can't say much for how far the irs will throw but i don't need much. The way the cabling for it is hooked up is kind of odd. It has an extra cable that i assume is for power that i am not sure what you would do with if it was outside(maybe silicone it up). The ethernet cable seems quite long and it does have a waterproof connector on it which seems odd but i suppose in some applications people will be happy to have it. . Picture quality is good considering i have not taken off the protective plastic. It is kind of annoying that neither of the amcrest cameras i have don't do dst automatically. So i set the camera to gmt rather than mess with it. The chrome app they have is pretty awful but for just verifying that the camera works it is mostly functional. The android tablet app is actually pretty good so if all you want is a video feed that is a good option. For just changing the settings any browser will work. . One odd thing is that the ipm-hx1b indoor camera from amcrest supports snmp where the ip3m-956e does not. Not sure what i would monitor with it but it seems strange that the cheaper camera has it and the better one does not.

Amcrest Outdoor Megapixel Vandal Security (ip3m 956ew) FAQ.

One of the best ip camera's i have used till date. . Ease of installation: very easy to install. Remove the dome cover to expose the holes to screw the system to the wall/ceiling etc. Adjust the camera as required and fit back the dome cover. Power connection: this can be covered either separately using a power adapter (not included) or a poe injector (not included). Without which, this unit will not power on. Connection: no wireless connection feature for this unit. Only possible way is to connect via ethernet cable. Monitoring: amcrest desktop app and mobile apps are available to keep an eye on the camera feed. Local storage: no local storage is available on this unit. Use a dvr/nvr or a pc with appropriate software (i use ispy) which records the feed from this unit. Cloud storage: only pain point for me with this camera. The cloud storage is available for few hrs as part of the free package. The cloud view doesnt always work. If the device is connected to your internet router, amcrest cloud service can be used to view the feed. But doesnt work all the time. Motion detection: worked almost all the time. Even a small movement or change, this camera triggers a notification via the cloud service. Camera feed: as mentioned earlier, one of the best camera's available. Both day time and night time video feeds are very clear. . Definitely worth getting this, if you want a descent to good camera for security. -Notice from B. Walsh, Richmond upon Thames

I really can't say any more than what's already been said by everyone else. They are good cameras for their price point. I have two of these cameras and they work well. But longevity is the bigger question. And i'm wondering how they'll do. During the frosty winters. . I run two of these outside; one for the front door/entry way and the other for the driveway. I'll be adding another for the back yard/back door eventually. . Here's my equipment config that's working well so far:. . 1. Two of these cameras set to 1080p. 2. Tp-link 8-port poe switch (4 poe / 4 regular). 3. Rt-n66u asus router set to wireless media bridge mode. 4. Rt-n66u asus router set to wireless router mode. 5. Old dell dimension 9100 pentium d 2. 8ghz w/4gb ram. 6. Blue iris software set to record "direct-to-disk". . My setup works decently well. Cpu usage stays around 50%-60% during the day and around 30%-40% at night time (black and white). Adding a third camera though will most likely require a computer upgrade. . The cameras have good color during the day time and during the night i switch them over to black and white. The ir range on them is a bit limited but is adequate for i use them for. One word of caution, to get the most out of the ir don't have something in the cameras field of view that is bright in color as it will wash out the picture at night time and cause darker areas to be even darker. Using the ir in my driveway looks far better than the ir in the entry way that is surrounded by yellow siding from the house. But, the camera app software does provide you with enough settings to tweak to get the image almost where you need it. . This is my first foray into security cameras and they seem to do the job perfectly. But, how long will they last?

- U. AnonymousThe picture quality from the cameras is outstanding. Setup of the system, once installation was completed, was thoroughly covered in the documentation however i would have liked more information about the cameras in the documentation. . The system cam packaged very well with a large box containing three smaller boxes. Everything was packed in such a manner so as to not cause damage to the cameras or nvr. . Installation of the cameras can be as complex or simple as you wish to make it. The system comes with two 60' and two 100' cat 5e ethernet cables. They are pre-made with snagless connectors on each end. For my installation, i ended up cutting the ends off, which actually helped since the weather cover for the outdoor connection was not preinstalled on the cabling. If you desire to have that cover on your outdoor connection, you'll need to cut the end and add a new connector. . I did have a little trouble with the remote viewing app as there is nothing in the provided documentation on how to set it up. Once it was setup, viewing is a breeze. The picture quality is the same as if you were viewing it on your tv monitor.

I purchased this to replace some older dahua 1. 2mp cameras i have had setup. These are a very nice upgrade. The picture is clear and the night vision is still very clear. These are extremely easy to setup as far as ip cameras go. The web interface is responsive and easy to navigate. A nice change form some other cameras i have setup is that these default with dhcp on, which is just one less step and will make them pretty much plug and play for most. These also have a much better selection of video encoding than the dahua models. I have these setup with a dedicated server running blue iris so i do not connect directly with them of use the cloud service, so i dont know how that that works, but the cameras themselves work very well

The F.A.Q. for amcrest prohd outdoor 1080p poe bullet ip security camera - ip67 weatherproof, 1080p 1920 tvl , ip2m-842e white

I'm really impressed with the video quality, ir lights / night vision range, and ease of setup. Don't get me wrong, running an ethernet cable through the attic in the middle of summer isn't fun. But i'm really glad i installed this camera. . I have added three images, the camera is about 40' away from an 18' diameter above ground pool. 1. The first picture is in bright daylight. 2. The second is at dusk but honestly looks like a black and white video stream in daylight. 3. The third is at night with the ir lights on. . I'm sure the picture with the ir lights on would be better if so much of it wasn't reflecting off of the house.

A number of questions have been asked here.

The product seems sturdy and quality built. Comes with a dongle containing both a cat5 connection and ac adapter connection. I only used the cat5 since i was using it for poe, and taped over the power plug. Also comes with a little sleeve thing to cover the connection of the cat5 cable. This sleeve is about 3/4" diameter, i was able to fit it through the hole i drilled with a spade bit in my soffit. Also comes with four mounting screws, however i used different ones of a bit higher quality. The camera is fully adjustable, the ball can be moved in any direction and the "holder" for it also spins around. Picture quality and color are good, however the night vision seems lacking. I'm not sure it actually makes the full 98 foot claim, but i also haven't exactly measured it. See the pics and judge for yourself (screenshots from the amcrest view android app). . As i said, i set it up poe with an amcrest nvr and it works perfectly. Was just plug n play into the nvr. Then i was able to view the live cam footage on my phone through the amcrest app which is nice. I believe this camera can also be connected directly to a router for live streaming, however you wouldn't get the extra features or recording capability of an nvr. . My only real complaint is mounting the thing. There are zero instructions provided in the quick start guide in regards to physically mounting the thing to a surface, and i also was unable to find an actual manual (besides the quick start guide) on the amcrest website. The quick start guide is very detailed in the use of the cam's features though. Anyway, i planned to mount the camera on the underside of my vinyl soffit but of course that's impossible to do with the ball in the way of the mounting screw holes. So i figured the ring that holds the ball in comes off. Nope, it just spins around forever. Some of the metal inside the ring actually ground off just by the spinning and force i put on it trying to disassemble it. Turns out, you can just apply downward pressure on the ball from the top (mounting location) and the ball will pop right out. Would have been nice to know that before spending half an hour trying to unscrew the thing. But even then, you'll want a long screwdriver bit to be able to get the screws in because since the ring is still in the way you're kind of screwing in at an angle. . It screwed into my vinyl soffit just fine with stainless steel 3/4" screws. Feels secure enough with no real solid backing behind it. Once the ring was mounted, i drilled a 3/4" diameter hole through the center to feed the cable up in to. There are also 4 little notches if you wish to run the cable out the side of the base. Once everything was in place, i pressed the ball back up in to the ring and it popped back in place. Hasn't fallen yet. . One other thing i noticed while testing it indoors is that the top of the camera ball gets very hot. It kind of makes me nervous having it outside in the sun and heat, but we will see what happens.

Best amcrest outdoor bullet security camera (ip2m 842ew) in review

The cons:. . Right off the bat, the quick start guide in the box only covers setting the camera up to talk to your network and the mobile app. It doesn't mention physical installation or mounting at all, which i think is a pretty major oversight. Installation is simple, but it's non-obvious if you've never done it before. I had to search online (the user guide on amcrest's website also doesn't have much info, but i was able to find a good youtube video that amcrest had published). Amcrest should really include install instructions in the box, or at least put a note directing people to the youtube video. I'm both fairly handy and tech saavy and it had me scratching my head so i imagine less tech saavy customers being totally lost. . The video feed requires a special plugin on your computer (boo), and the plugin doesn't appear to work with chrome. Offering a product that isn't compatible with the most popular web browser in the world seems like a questionable business strategy, but at least the plugin does work with firefox, so i was able to use that as a workaround. . I did notice that the plugin for viewing video in a web browser did crash a few times, but it's simple enough to refresh the page to get it going again, however, if it is your intent to leave the video feed open in a browser for an extended period of time this may be problematic for you. . This camera uses a pigtail for external connections (power / network). The pigtail is about 12" long and is permanently attached to the camera. The downside to using a pigtail is that if you want to do an "in wall" install (where the cable runs inside the wall / ceiling) is that you have to drill a much larger hole to allow the pigtail to fit through the hole. Not necessarily an issue if the camera never moves, but if you ever take the camera down you'll be left with a rather large ( 3/4") hole in your wall which is much harder to patch than a smaller hole for a single cat5 cable. . The mounting system is designed such that the camera is supposed to be able to move horizontally/vertically in order to aim it, but there are four plastic pieces where the mounting screws go that interfere with the pigtail coming out of the back of the camera so in some circumstances it's very difficult / impossible to point the camera exactly where you want it. . The pros:. . Aesthetically, the camera looks very nice. It's very low profile and unobtrusive. Once mounted, it gives me the impression that it's very secure and will be a "set it and forget it" solution. . Once you understand the install process and the nuances / caveats that go with it, it's very simple. It took me about 30 minutes to install the first camera and subsequent cameras only took about 10 minutes. . Overall, the camera seems to be high quality. It feels sturdy and does not have that "cheap, made in china" feel to it that many lower cost cameras have. . The web interface for the camera is fairly intuitive and easy to use (other than plugin issues mentioned above). All of the usual options (flip/rotate image, change resolution, change frame rate, etc are present). . I'm using these cameras with zoneminder dvr software and they work as expected, no compatibility issues. . Image quality seems to be good (not great - some motion blur, hdr washout, etc) and the night-time ir functionality is much better than the cameras i replaced. . The final thoughts:. . Amcrest can do better on their out of box experience. It would be nice if the cameras had native browser support without requiring buggy or unsupported plugins, but this isn't a show stopper. The mounting system can be a little challenging at first but once you understand the nuances it works fine. Video quality is good, as expected at this price point. All in all, all of my complaints will only be issues on day 1 during installation, after that i'll never deal with them so they're not a big deal to me. I would buy this again.

This is a fantastic product. I have tried lots of different brands - very happy with this wired product. . Pros:. Outstanding picture clarity. Real-time preview. Easy to see past recordings. Excellent customer support. High quality cameras that can be adjusted to any viewing angle. Easy to preview live on pc, and monitor connected to nvr. . Cons:. Must use ie for computer access (no chrome or edge support). Android app is poor - way too many options and most don't work. Just show me 2 things: live preview and easy to access playback! . Nvr ui is not user friendly - you have to call support for pretty much everything. . I just went from wireless (flaky, unreliable, unstable) to wired. Wired is the way to go. . Fortunately they have excellent customer support. I am pretty sharp in the tech area, but with the poor nvr ui and manual, i had to call them several times to get everything figured out. . Using this with amcrest nv4108e-hs nvr, and amcrest 5-port poe+ switch: amps5e4p-at-58 (so i could run 1 cat 7 to garage). . Even with the cons. I highly recommend this product.

E. Whiteman, Merton says

Tried this camera out for the price. Works fine with blueiris. One thing i did notice, is the camera randomly disconnecting, which isn't a deal breaker since it reconnects right away. Blueiris logs show the disconnect but then it comes right back up. I also use rstp streaming via vlc. That is where i discovered the disconnects. . Additional information:. Here is what i used for the rstp streaming url: rtsp://username:password cameraip:80/cam/realmonitor? channel 1&subtype 1

Easy hardware setup run one cat5 cable to the camera for connectivity and power. To make the network connect more weather proof i used dielectric gel and heat shrink tubing over the rj45 connector. The software (amcrest surveillance pro) took a little bit to figure out recording and alarm area. I purchased a tp-link gigabit poe injector adapter (tl-poe150s) to power camera because my 24 port 1000gb switch is not a poe enable switch. Since we have fiber and centurylink wireless boxes i pulled out the old coax and used the same hole to bring the cat5 cable into the house. A couple weeks after the install caught a couple kids trying to break into my vehicles around midnight. The motion alarm sounded off and by the time i got to the door and they were in the neighbor's driveway. Chased for a couple blocks came back and sent photos to the police department.

H. Erin, Walsall says

Love this unit! recently installed one inside a dwelling for a client and most recently (today) two more, one under a covered porch and the other on the outside of a house. These are power over ethernet cameras that plug into a switch or router and are completely independent and do not require a dedicated recorder necessarily. You get 4 hours of free recording in the amcrest cloud and then it loops over. You also have the option to get emails, push alerts through the amcrest view pro app for motion detection and video tampering, downloading to a nas or through an ftp drive, built in night vision up to 100 feet as well plus many other options. . Basically the camera is physically mounted by unscrewing the top white ring above the word "amcrest" in the product photo there you have four screw holes to use provided phillips screws and drywall anchors if needed. Then feed your cable through hole in side of the structure or into a junction box if you're mounting it on a electrical junction box (a 2"x2" junction box works well for this. ) one side note here, if you are putting the cable through a structure or junction box for a clean, flush install you will need a 3/4 inch paddle bit. The ethernet end of the pigtail connector is significantly thick. A 3/4 inch hole fits the connector perfectly. . If you do not wire through a wall/ structure/ junction box, the 8" pigtail connector can be routed out from under that four screw base which has four slots to slip cable under. After you have mounted the four screw baseplate and have decided where you're routing the cable, the cameras has the middle section that you can see below the product image's word, amcrest. The camera sits in this and this is what is screwed in with ring that has "amcrest" printed on it. The camera can be tilted only manually, no motorized pan tilt zoom or one/ two way audio. . This camera can be powered via two methods: a 12 volt power supply right at the camera if you're fortunate enough for a convenient outlet near by. However most the time when in an attic or conduit, etc. This is not the case. Most often people will use poe or power over ethernet. Poe will input the correct voltage for the camera over the ethernet line you are running for the data/ router connection. This is extremely easy and just takes plugging your ethernet cable from camera into a "poe injector" or poe switch, both of which can be found here on online store and then from that particular device to the router then you're set! . . Overall this is a great camera and you get a lot of functionality from the webpage (gui) after finding the ip address through the provided software or your router webpage. These cameras are ip66 water and dust ingress protected and with the cast aluminum body these are not cheap feeling in the least. I love this model and brand of cameras and would definitely recommend them. . Disclaimer: i did not get a discount or free product in return for my honest review. I am just a nerd at heart! thanks!

Kudos to amcrest for providing a zoneminder howto video on youtube! they've done something that other companies simply refuse to do by not alienating their non-windows users. I had it up and running in zoneminder in less than 5 minutes. I'm happy with the camera so far. The angle is good but has a little fisheye effect. The only reason i knocked off a star is that their web plugin for chromium simply doesn't work. I installed amcrest webview from the chrome app store but still cannot get a live stream from the camera's web interface. Since i'm using zoneminder, i can see the stream in zoneminder's interface and i don't really care that i can't see my live stream in the camera's configuration interface but it would be nice for the on-camera config. I've ordered a second one and will probably get more after that. I try to reward companies that are linux-friendly by giving them my business.

B. Jessica, Reading says

We installed three of this camera about three weeks ago. Love them so far. The picture is fantastic. Even in pitch black. You have no idea the camera is on you and it captures every detail on your silly face! . The software built into the amcrest is great to get you started and create dedicated url's for each camera. Then i moved to blue iris. Bi has a learning curve and now that i think i have it down, i love it. (watch the youtube's and just experiment. ). . I hardwired all my cameras, poe, to a switch, which i had to buy. I have had wifi security cameras and they are not worth a nickel if the wifi blinks out. Yes the attic crawl was super fun, but it is done. Yes, they are stiff and hard to position but once they are in place, you don't have to re-adjust at all. . I can't tell you how good it feels to know you can see if your packages were dropped off at the front door or just tossed against the garage door. (yes, for real. ) then you can text your . And have them pick up the package for you before it walks away. . Advice - change the password on each camera to make them your own and unhackable! it is very easy to hack anything if they kept the admin password on the unit.

Q. Clara, Blackpool

I have three of these and all have performed great with no issues. Two are outdoors under eaves and one is inside the garage. The cameras that are outdoors do get exposed to rare rain when strong wind blows it at an angle and this has not caused any issues. We also had some extremely humid weather for several days and this did not cause any issues either. . These cameras are smaller than i expected. I went from old foscam bullet cameras that were larger than a soda can. The old foscam cameras had a few rows of infrared leds so i expected this amcrest camera with one row to not have as good of night vision. However, this was not the case. This camera does just fine after dark. Seems like the led technology has improved. . The firmware used with these cameras is quite good and much more polished than foscam cameras. Amcrest also offers free surveillance software that works quite well. I believe amcrest purchased my favorite surveillance software blue iris and it may have been the base code for their program (this is just speculation). However, the amcrest program is much more basic than blue iris and i believe it will only work with amcrest cameras. All of this is fine with me since it is free, works well, and i really like amcrest cameras. I have used amcrest cameras and software for others and it is working flawlessly. . All this would not make for five stars if the picture was not good, and it certainly is. I know there are higher resolution cameras, but 1080p is just fine for most uses. I mostly view my camera remotely, so that feed is not 1080p and it looks good. I am amazed at the video when i view it from the computer running blue iris. I think it would be hard to find a better camera for the price.

G. Imelda, Vermont says

I bought 2 of these 3mp cameras along with the amcrest nvr. What i really like about them is that all of the guts of the camera are completely sealed in the "ball" with the lens. You adjust the entire ball rather than take off a dome and adjust the lens where the camera is looking. The lens are also separated from the ir leds so there is no issue with nighttime washout or ir reflection back into the camera. Not the most powerful leds but sufficient for the task; makes be believe these leds will live a nice long life. I will be ordering more of these cameras once i get my security layout finalized. Price wise, these cameras give a much bigger bang for the buck and that works for me.

N. Cunningham, Poitou-Charentes

This has a great picture and a very wide viewing angle! we bought it on sale to keep an eye on the kids playing in the backyard, and was the first of probably a few camera's we'll end up buying. The app connects in seconds and will you view a total of 4 cameras at once. Power for this comes from a 4-port, 48v, passive poe injector. It would have been great if the camera came with one, but unfortunately that was an additional expense. Because of the wide viewing angle and high resolution, you can zoom in digitally. You lose the detail, of course, but not so much that you can't see the image. This camera also has a ring of near-infrared lights around the lens. You can see them at night, but not near as brightly as they appear on camera or as bright as the image appears.

W. Guest, Lancashire says

I am buying a series of these cameras to upgrade an older analog system with zoneminder. They are fantastic replacements for my old analog setup; not too large, easy to install and set up (hardware and software - though i'm technical so i may not be the best person to judge), and so far they are working beautifully. . A few things i've noted:. . The ring can be tough to tighten and loosen. A piece of rubber in your hand can help grip to get it loose the first time. I took another reviewer's idea and put a little grease on the threads and worked them back and forth - a lot - and that seemed to help. You'll want to do this because fighting with that ring while you're up on a ladder or reaching up on the ceiling isn't fun. . One flaw is that the back of the camera (where the cable comes out) maintains the spherical shape of the camera. What this means is that when you mount the base, you need to take into account where the cord sticks out of the camera based on where you want to position it, because there are some positions you can't reach with the camera as the cord hits one of the four mounting points inside the base. You'll know what i'm talking about after you open it up if i'm not being clear enough. The solution is to figure out which way you plan to aim the camera and be sure to mount the base such that the opposite direction from that aiming point is between two of the mount points inside the bracket. I've had better cameras which allow for "infinite" adjustment once mounted, but that is definitely not the case here. . I like that the software forces you to change the password as soon as you set up the camera. This is a good practice and will go a long way toward preventing devices like these from becoming hacked or part of iot botnets, provided these cameras don't have hard-coded root credentials that we're not aware of and are accessible through a firewall. . As i mentioned, these cameras work nicely with zoneminder, and having poe is awesome. I put poe switches on either end of the house so i don' have to run wires nearly as far, and running cat5e is so much easier than dealing with those combined av/power wires on the analog cameras. If you go poe be sure to buy plenum rated full copper cable. Don't use cca cable; it's risky with poe applications. I read on the box that these cameras draw up to 4. 4 watts (i think); i have yet to see them draw that much even with ir on, but i'm only using 720p, a fairly low frame rate, and i turned off the sub stream, etc. So maybe i'm saving some power that way. . Image quality is great (coming from analog, though, i know there's a huge wow factor, like when you got your first hdtv and saw your first ota high def broadcast. There's a bit of fisheye effect toward the edges, but i really like having the wide field of view.

A. Kathlene, Tasmania says

I bought this to monitor my front door. It works very well. It has a web interface to configure everything. If you point it to an ftp server, you can have it record video. It even does motion detection recording right on the camera. I like the poe (power over ethernet) feature because it means i only have to run one network wire to the camera for power and network (when the other end is attached to a poe switch).

Z. Sandra, New York

These cameras have an amazing quality and viewing angle. I have implemented them with blue iris but in the latest project i used an amcrest nv4108e-hs nvr which was able to power and view all 8 cameras with ease. The cameras come with everything you need to get them mounted; wrench, mounting template, screws and wall anchors. You need a poe adapter to get power to them unless you buy the power adapters. The web interface is easy to navigate and responds very fast. The amcrest application for iphone and android works great. You can use p2p or open ports on your router to access the camera. Overall if you know the basics in networking these cameras are one of the best in the market. I have used them for both outdoor and indoor projects.

T. Helen, Solihull says

This amcrest camera turned out to be a good bang for the buck. Installation was easy, and it works well with blue iris software. I've used logitech, vivotek, trendnet, and other cameras, and even if the amcrest isn't the best of the bunch, it is certainly the best value for the money.

V. Arnett, Brighton and Hove

I've been using high-end panasonic ptz security cameras around our home for more than 10 years. The panasonics cost about $800 each when new. They were great in their time, but resolution is 640x480 and low-light sensitivity is limited. . I decided to get some new cameras for our retirement home, but could not afford to spend nearly as much money this time around. My 30 year-old son recommended this amcrest camera. I got one to monitor the front door, to see who is there and to keep an eye on the online store package deliveries when we're away. . This camera has great sharpness, resolution and low-light sensitivity. The poe makes it easy to set up since only one cable needs to be run for both power and video. Because it is an ip network camera, there are many flexible viewing options from desktop computers, laptops and many types of portable phones. It can record sharp video and still photos to a local hard drive or to a remote network drive or to the "cloud". It can send you alerts when something moves in the field of view to let you check remotely to see who is at the door. . Basic camera setup is pretty easy. Step-by-step instructions guide you through. . Setting up for remote access using a pc is complicated. It helps if you have some experience with internet protocols. I had to get help from amcrest phone support. It took about 10-15 mins before i connected with a technician, but tina was very knowledgeable and customer-friendly. Using the teamview remote access software (downloaded from amcrest. Com) tina worked quickly through a bunch of screens and got remote access running through the amcrestview. Com interface. . All in all, i'm very happy and impressed with this camera. It has a fixed field of view, but for keeping an eye on the doorway, that's all i need for now.

R. Mahood, Alaska says

I currently have 3 of these dome cameras, 2 of which are being used and the 3rd about to go up. They are great cameras very clear. The infrared shoots a long distance. I have one at the front door and it lights up the whole area on camera and the other is just under the eve of my second story watching the back yard. The infrared on the back yard lights up the whole area i am monitoring and its easily 20+ feet in the air. These cameras should work with any d/nvr that follows the onvif standard. . Comes with a pattern to ensure you drill holes in the right spot before hanging. Base has 4 screws to connect to the wall and a clamping screw around the whole camera that holds it in place very well. The camera is kinda built to give a downward angle just like the picture. If you mount it and try to get a horizontal view the cable at the back of the camera will hit the edge of the mount. Be sure to mount the camera a little higher than what you want to monitor and you wont have a problem. . Great cameras, synced right away with my amcrest nvr which is poe so i didnt have to run any extra cables other than the cat6

These are pretty easy to set up and the video quality is is good both in the day and night modes. . That said i will mention some observations:. There's a few different ways to go about the initial setup on these. Sure you can use a phone and that is one way to do it. I found the amcrest surveillance pro software to be my favorite way. You can also use the amcrest ip config software or the nvr interface if you are using the nvr. Having used them all i like the surv, pro sw best. One big reason is this. As some users mentioned one problem with the cameras is that if you lose power - not just to the cameras only but say to everything - including your router, they are subject to getting different addresses when everything comes back. This can be problematic. I decided to simplify my life in this area by switching my whole system over to static addresses. Once this is done i think the power outages will have less impact (they happen here with annoying frequency). I found making these configuration to be easiest using the surv pro sw. . I think this resolution is a good balance between good video quality and network performance. Sure you can get better resolutions but with ip cameras that comes at the cost of more traffic and higher bandwidth needs. Now i have 6 of my 9 cameras run poe directly into a switch connected directly into my nvr so most of the traffic on mine is not going over my wifi network. And the 3 wifi cameras i have of the same resolution perform well too. And i find this resolution fine for my needs. . Now for the physical side - you have to be careful how you mount the base relative to where you want to aim the camera because the screw channels can interfere with the camera's ability to point downward. The base has 4 screws and if you have one of those in line with the downward tilt of the camera you will not have the full range of motion and will not be able to tilt it down very far. You want that cable on the back side of the camera to roll up centered between those screw channels. Otherwise the camera will not tilt down very far into that little semi-circular notch in the bracket. I noticed this after having to undo and remount the first one i mounted because i was not paying attention to this detail. And one of the ones i got was so tight in the base i had to put a strap wrench on it to unscrew it from the baseplate to allow me to mount it. A machine must have screwed that thing together. Once you get past these small details they are easy to mount. I love the poe - so much easier to deal with than the old style. It is why i have waited until now to install a system. On the whole i've been happy with these so far.

Y. Evelyn, Wisconsin says

Great camera product. This product works exactly as expected with little pre-configuration. Wires are hidden in the mount, so they cannot be tampered with once the camera is mounted. Image quality is good and infra-red lighting is great. Good feature set on the camera software and easy to setup. . This camera has plenty of options available. It's onvif compatible, so it works with a number of applications other than being limited to the amcrest application. You can even turn off the p2p streaming to the cloud services and use it as a local ip camera. . It is a poe (power over ethernet) camera, so don't purchase this unless you have a plan for getting power to the camera either via a poe switch, or poe injectors. This model is not wifi, but requires an ethernet (network) cable for the network connection. I use the hardwired setup to a poe switch and it works great. . This camera does not include audio so don't expect that, or ptz (pan tilt zoom) but it was exactly as i expected for an outdoor, poe, non-ptz, non-audio camera, in fact it exceeded my performance expectations. . Again, lots of settings, so it can function as a standalone camera or as part of a multi-camera system running blue iris software or other ip camera application. Very pleased with this camera model and the included feature set.

L. Pearson, Redcar and Cleveland

I purchased 4 of these camera to place around all the exits of my home. A few years back a couple of guys tried to break in to the house and the wife has been asking me to add security cameras for piece of mind. I also think adding cameras around the house act as a great deterrent again intruders. At night the soft glow of the led night vision lights also a great warning that they are on camera. . I went with poe cameras since even the wireless ones still need a cable for power so i bought a 8 port poe injector ws-poe-8-48v60w passive 10/100 power over ethernet poe injector for 8 ip cameras, voip phones or access points, 48 volts, 60 watts total power which connects via cat5e to the cameras and the dlink switches for the house network. I used blueiris added to a media pc i already had to act as the control center for all of the camera which i can access via a web page or using their mobile app. . The first camera was a little tricky to setup since it was the first but after i figured it out the next cameras took about 60 seconds. I do recommend setting up a static ip so if there is a power outage they don't come up with a new ip address and you can't find them. Video quality during the day and night is very good. Impressed how far the night vision can reach although my primary concern is without 30-40 feet of the entrances. . I think the physical quality of the cameras is good. Previous reviewers have talked about two small wires hanging out. I think they have gotten rid of this now. On this model there is the ethernet connection which comes with outside water-resistant connectors and another smaller connector which looks like it could be used for external power. Not sure how you would reset the cameras now. I did wish that it was possible to be able to disconnect their 8" or so cable and just plug the ethernet right in to the camera base. On one of my camera their cable is inside the wall but its visible in the other installations. . So far i'm very happy with the purchase and we will see how they hold up against colorado weather.

X. Gilmore, South Australia says

I recently decided to install a surveilance system in my home. I decided to buy a synology diskstation as the nvr and then buy other branded quality cameras to finish up the system. I previously had installed a poe 24v switch that runs two ubiquiti access points in my home. I thouhgt, "hey i've already got the plugs and power so just add them to the switch and i'll be good. " right? wrong. I plugged in the camera and nothing happened. I did some digging and this particular camera apparently uses a 48v poe system. Luckily my "wifitexas" poe product had the capability to run dual power types. I ordered a new 48v power supply and will know more if this solves the problem on monday. As for the product it looks well made, has some heft and looks good. I'm going to install one first and see how the video quality looks then i might add more later.

C. Donna, Texas

 i bought this camera to monitor my driveway and most of the front of my house. I have it mounted right over my driveway and the wide angle is perfect for this setup. I think the angle is a little wider than the advertised 93 degrees, which is a good thing. I also have another one mounted over the deck in the rear of my house. The camera is white so it's inconspicuous as well. This camera is true 1080p and nearly matches the clarity of the ip3m and ip4m cameras, which i have also tested. Mounting it can be a little tricky until you understand how it should be positioned. You have to pay extra attention to where the wire is positioned as you tighten the ring. Although tricky, the mounting style allows for some fairly flexible angles since the camera is basically a ball. You can twist and turn it how you see fit. . The only thing i don't particularly care for is that it has a fairly large rj45 connector that must be positioned outside of the camera. This would be fine for an in-wall installation but i ended up running my cables under my siding and the size of the connector made it pretty difficult. Keep in mind that if you plan on running the cables into your house that you will be required to drill a fairly large hole into your house in order to fit the connector through. To be fair, it's not really possible to make the connector much smaller than it is but i think it would have been a good option to have the ability to plug an rj45 connector directly into the back of the camera. This would eliminate the need for the larger connector and allow you to drill a much smaller hole. There certainly would be enough room on the back of this camera to do this. The infrared performance is good. The light distribution isn't completely even but that's nearly impossible to find at this price point, especially with the clarity of this camera. Overall, i'm happy with it and i personally think this poe dome camera has the best bang for your buck.

Disadvantage and Critical reviews

L. Nees, City of Bristol says

Camera and nvr hardware works great. Camera exactly as expected, and works great at night. 5 stars for that. I am disappointed with the software, and the app on my mobile (android). I am struggling to see the video associated with motion detection alarms, for example.

I. Josephine, New Hampshire

I have purchased several (good) cameras from amcrest, so when i saw this i was quick to pick one up. First thing to say is that this camera is quite a bit bigger than their other ptz cameras in the same class. I was a bit surprised by the size (see picture), but the fit and finish are just fine. Just be ready for this one to not be as "stealthy" as it smaller cousins. . But size is not really the issue. The problem is with how the camera zoom and auto-focus work. For some inexplicable reason, the camera constantly will zoom and refocus on it's own without any input from the user. There are several settings in the camera setup, but none of them seem to fix this issue. And i've searched for updated firmware, but so far no luck. The picture quality is good, with nice colors and sharpness, and the ptz controls are responsive. It also works very well with blue iris so no issues there. The other quite disturbing problem with this camera, is the noises it makes. When you pan/zoom/tilt the camera, it will make a quite audible high pitched whining sound, that continues to raise in pitch almost to the point where you think it might "pop" or burn out. . I'm still deciding whether to return this camera or not. But hopefully this information will help others who are on the fence about it. I would stay clear if i were you. -. . Update 8/2/17: i was able to update the camera to the new firmware and the autofocus issues have gone away. Overall, its a decent camera. But i think i will continue to purchase the smaller (non-zooming) ptz's as they are a better fit for my needs.

. Michele, North Dakota says

Camera is great. Software is very lackluster, disjointed, and disappointing. If you plan to get this camera, plan to spend an extra $30 for software like blue iris or a 3rd party cam software. . Let me prefix my review by saying im a software engineer of 10+ years. I am not new to computer or uis. The camera was easy to get installed with poe, detected on my network and has good field of vision as well as color. Night vision is also acceptable on this camera. The night vision ir lights give off a low red dim glow. I assumed they would be invisible and not visible to the naked eye. They are only detectable standing within 10 feet of camera and looking head on. . The problem with this camera comes to the software. There are many ways to access the camera and configure it: desktop software, local webpage, cloud webpage, cloud app, amcrest app. The problem is, each piece of this software is not consistent with the others. The local webpage has a comprehensive suite of tools and so far seems to work the best. The problem with the webpage is that it requires a plugin and only works on ie (you can read the support forums where others have experienced the nightware only to be blown off by tech support). Some functions work in some software but they dont work in others. For example, email seems to work when set up through the local webpage, but not through desktop software. Motion detection is comprehensive through local webpage and desktop software, but configuration is useless through the apps. Upgrading to latest desktop software causes the pc-dvr to completely stop working. So in order to achieve a piece of functionality, its basically a long trial and error process using a combination of the apps to figure out what works and what doesnt. When you try to refer to the manual, you find very little actual help. Most of the labels in the software are generic and have no associated help or description so its trial and error trying to figure out which check box does what. It it obvious this documentation was written by the person who wrote the software. You can tell there is very little end user testing or feedback incorporated into the applications. This leads every complaint to be met with "call tech support" in order to try to work through the problem, and tech support will want to remote into your computer and try to diagnose the issue. No thanks. If they had spent proper time designing and testing the software, 99% of these issues and breakages would be gone. My biggest fear is when a new flaw develops and i am forced to upgrade my firmware, that it will either break my camera or screw up the software in which i will have to do the setup process all again. Its a no win with these cameras. . The cloud functionality is tied into the cloud services amcrest provides. The free tier is for 1 camera and only for motion detect events for the last 4 hours, not the last 4 hours of events captured. Its good for trying out the service but not much useful unless you check the app every 4 hours before events get wiped from cloud. . I currently use this camera to record 24-7 to a backup hard drive in my main computer. . I would personally recommend you skip this camera, and probably skip amcrest as a whole as their software is not ready for prime time.

. Audrey, New Mexico

This was a good camera, unfortunately there was a couple of minor shortcomings that forced me to return it. . Pros:. - camera was easy to setup. - excellent video quality. - email photo, record etc. . Cons:. - amcrest surveillance pro software is horrific. I couldnt get the nvr feature to even work. Called support several times, got one call to explain the issue, never called back. - the one above wouldn't have been a dealbreaker if this camera integrated with any other ip camera nvr/monitoring software. I tried ispy and xprotect. Xprotect couldnt even connect to it and ispy just lagged out the camera on connection. . Save yourself the hassle and get hikvision cameras, bought four and they work like a charm

Q. Hannah, Lewisham says

I purchased the amcrest prohd outdoor 1080p poe dome ip camera in september 2016. It made a good addition to my home exterior security. . The image quality is pretty good day and night. The field of view is okay at about 93 degrees or so. . The user interface for setting-up the camera is much like the other amcrest cameras i have but the font they chose to use for the camera-displayed camera name looks like pixelated text from an old commodore 64. Not impressive. . Physically installing and positioning the camera is a bit of a pain. The metal screw-on collar can be difficult to turn and i found it to be awkward and challenging to get the camera positioned the way i wanted. . This camera has become one of the less reliable cameras of those i've added to my system. The camera goes offline, sometimes multiple times a day, and during that time it is not accessible. Usually it returns after a few minutes but sometimes i have to disconnect and then reconnect it from the poe network switch to get it to reboot.

V. Pete, Utah

The cable was shorter than it was described, but the system is easy to instal and use. Thanks!

H. Gilmore, Birmingham says

I bought 9 of them for a project and it was working fine. One of the cameras starts to go wild. . First, i lost the video signal and i have to power-cycle it in order to get it back on. Then, it disappeared from the network, and reboot for it to come back on. However, after couple times, it's completed dead and no longer detected on the network. Then we tested the ethernet cable with other cameras and it working totally fine. . I like amcrest cameras, but they need to do a better job for qc.

. Erin, Bremen

I can only view it from the amcrest apps and ie (shouldn't even exist anymore). I have an insteon hub and the app that i have several foscam ip cameras connected to, but i can't connect the amcrest. I use the owlr app with the same foscam ip cams i use for the hub, but can't connect to the amcrest cam. Kind of annoying. . The camera itself works fine and has decent features, but the lack of flexible viewing options is quite annoying.

. Nancy, Lincolnshire says

Fine camera, but technology has moved beyond. I used this in a less critical area. Compared to the 4mp cameras i have, this seems blurry. Overall, not bad and priced much better.

J. Cindy, Victoria

Overall, the system worked as advertised. I'm have an issue with one camera that i think might need to be replaced. I haven't had time to address it with the holidays. Will reach out to support & update this after seeing how they respond. . I do have some regrets not going to a higher resolution camera. The hd is good, but i've been playing with 4k with significant success. Just couldn't justify the increased cost of 4k yet.

. Lindsey, Saarland says

I purchased this camera in order to extend an existing installation. Unfortunately, it was not easily integrated with our existing nvr.

T. Heidi, New York

Camera works well, but was a pain to set up as it was delivered with the default password reset to something other than the default. Not sure if this was a fault of the manufacturer or supplier. Had to unmount the camera and disassemble it to reset to factory. The instructions to reset did not match the actual hardware which made the job more interesting. Works with my synology just fine. Android apps are functional.

D. Teresa, Walsall says

Camera quality is excellent. Software is pretty good outside of having to use ie to view the cameras on the web. For the price, there should be a secondary slot to add a secondary harddrive for a mirror raid configuration. Having only one harddrive scares me in the scenario where it were to fail.

S. Walsh, Maine

Just be aware that this particular 4ch nvr being sold as a bundle with this kit "will be under-powered" if you want to run you 1. 3mp cameras at full 960p resolution. You cannot even run one camera at 960p resolution without seeing the results effecting this nvr. Amcrest simply should have sold 1mp camera's with this unit. Maybe some people may feel i'm just being picky, but felt i should have been able to operate this system with the camera's at their native resolution. Their marketing material makes it sound like it can do more than it actual can. . What was happening? the clock on camera 4 would skip ahead every 2 seconds. This resulted in any motion capture look "really jerky". However, playing back any recordings from "all four" cameras skipped ahead every 2 seconds! but, this never would happen on the android app. I however am using a 24" color monitor and cannot live with this jerky motion. The only way to resolve this issue complete is to lower the camera's resolution from 960p to 720p. Not 1 camera, or 2, or even 3, but all 4 cameras have to be turned down. . Aside from this issue, everything else went well. The images looked sharp and clear. Installing, connecting and using the android app was a snap! wished i could say i was impressed with amcrest customer service, but i cannot, i kinda of have a bad taste in my mouth on this one. But hey, overall i liked the system enough that i just sent this system back and got the amcrest system with the more powerful nvr, and i can differently tell the difference.

O. Denise, Doncaster says

So far i like the potential of the cameras. What i do not like is the ip conflicts it created on my network so bad that it locks other ports on my router. Changed router to a smarter router and that helped 90% but it was still dropping connectivity on my wireless devices and nas drive. The cameras designed for the nvr should work flawlessly but i am having problems getting all 4 cameras to come up everytime. If i reboot the nvr, the cameras are certain to get out of sorts. The auto detect has never worked. I hope this is a bad nvr that is causing havoc but my instinct tell me that this setup is very diy and lack some sophistication we expect in 2018. As a hobby, i may get it working better. I am reaching out to their 2nd level tech support and hope to hear a miracle fix but odds are we get half my concerns corrected or replaced but i am sensing the system is not going to be as stable and reliable as i hoped. I will update this the tech support continues.

Y. Miller, Redbridge

I purchased three of these cameras to upgrade from an outdated analog system. . I set up the cameras via an amcrest nvr which was very simple to do. . Once installed and operating, the camera performs very well. The video is bright with good colors in all lighting even at dawn and dusk. If you mount the camera near a night light you will get a good color image at night. In pitch black darkness the ir's kick in for a very good black and white picture. . Except for the following faults i would give it five stars for performance:. . 1. The camera must be disassembled to mount it which would be fine if one could get it apart. The metal ring on two cameras was completely seized up and would not unscrew. Two large pipe wrenches might have opened the camera but i didn't want to scratch and dent a brand new device under warranty. So, i made a fixture with a scrap of wood and two nails locked in a vise to hold the base solidly so i could turn the ring with both hands. With much back and forth twisting i finally got the rings to unscrew. I put a small amount of lithium grease on the threads and screwed the rings back on and off several times then the rings seemed to work ok. The threads on the rings are very rough and make a grating sound when rotating the ring. . 2. After operating just fine the system rebooted per a scheduled reboot and i lost one camera with a message, "the account has been locked. " i worked on this for half a day and could not unlock the camera. So, i called amcrest tech support and was informed that the only recovery for this was to do a factory reset on the camera. This is where it went from slight aggravation to total absurdity. In order to reset this camera one must disassemble the camera, plug-in power to it and short two tiny pc board pads for 15 seconds with a paperclip. Amcrest has an instruction set with pictures showing how to do this. I think this is insane to expect non-technical consumers to perform this reset. I'm an engineer and i think it's crazy. Firstly, these cameras are meant to be mounted outdoors so one must get up on a ladder and bring the camera down. The screws holding the camera together are t10 torx-not a problem for me but the average person probably won't have a set of torx drivers. The camera is poe so to get power to it one must do a balancing act on a ladder or find a way to plug it in directly to the poe source. My poe network switch is on a high shelf in the garage so either way i must be on a ladder. If one slips with the paperclip it could well short something in the camera and render it useless. Amcrest needs to do better than this! . . I removed the scheduled weekly reboot hoping i won't have to reset the camera ever again. If resetting becomes a routine activity i will install a push button on the camera. A foscam camera i purchased a while ago had a pigtail with a reset button. Amcrest, which was foscam, should have continued this implementation.

M. McCarthy, Durham says

Don't buy these cameras unless you love to spend days upon days upon days troubleshooting. Every time the power goes out which happens a lot in my neighborhood, something gets completely messed up and i spend days and days fixing it again. After spending the entire winter troubleshooting all my various problems, i'm still stuck with cameras that won't email me when there's movement (tried everything), and i've never been able to get the app to allow me to view the live feeds unless i'm on site. Yes i've read everything out there on the internet about how to fix it, yes i've talked to customer support, yes i've tried this yes i've tried that. With my latest power outage, the entire system changed ip addresses on me which took me hours to figure out, and only one of my three cameras i've set up has come back online. The app is completely down now and no amount of resetting is fixing it. I'm now going to need to spend money to hire a professional to come in here to sort out these problems. . When they work, they're very helpful and i feel very secure. But dang, what a giant pain in the but these are.

R. Lisa, Delaware

It s kind of bewildering shopping for security systems. I had no idea how many different technologies were available. There s everything from low rez old school tv lines to full hd 4mp cameras and higher. There are wired poe, analog, digital, hybrids and wifi systems. You really need to go to school before you pop for your system. I chose this one because of simplicity of wiring, relatively speaking, since it has the digital data and power in one cable. Also, i ve had enough nightmares trying to get wifi to work even for a very basic setup, let alone a bunch of cameras and a recorder. I'll start with the hardware. It came well packed and with a decent amount of cabling to wire up my small house with 4 cameras. The cameras are a bit larger than they look in the photos, but they do seem pretty sturdy, except for the connection between the swiveling neck and the base. Even with everything tightened down, there s a little play. Speaking of the base, the camera head can only swing up into a horizontal position through a slot in the neck of the base flange. Trouble is, that slot is perfectly aligned with one of the three screws you need to access to mount the base. If you swing the camera out of the way and mount the base solid, you better hope the camera is aimed in the proper direction since there s no lateral adjustment once it s tightened down. If you aim the camera and tighten the swivel ball beforehand, you can t access one of the three screws. It s a real dance to mount, aim and tighten the swivel screw. It s no reflection on this particular system, but running the cables can be a real pain. I had hoped to tie all four cameras into a poe switch so that only one cable from that switch needed to come into the house. The system was not finding the cameras after doing so and i finally found out through tech support that you can t use a switch with this system! i then had to re-route my cables with all four network cables poked through my livingroom floor and to my router. As for the nvr, it s basically a box for the 1tb hdd. There are no controls on the front at all. The interface it strictly via a crappy, two dollar mouse that s included. Moving on to the software, i ll open with the password. Choose the password carefully - you are going to enter it often and you can t easily change it. You need to balance security with ease of entry when selecting the password. Constantly entering the damn thing with a crude mouse on a lousy on-screen keyboard is painful. Switching between lower and upper case characters requires three clicks! the input is so bad you want to use two hands on the mouse to stabilize it. Fortunately i had a quality wireless usb mouse that helped some. It doesn t really get much better from here as the manual only covers the basic setup and settings. Most of the system features you will have to discover on your own with minimal assistance from google and youtube. For instance, the amcrest system default is to record everything, all the time at low resolution. It took me quite a while to find the settings and get the recording to trigger on motion only in hi-rez. Then you still have to set up zones to trigger or omit recording and balance the threshold and sensitivity to avoid unwanted recording. Good luck figuring out how to prevent recording insects, raindrops, spider webs and blowing foliage while snagging that guy who steals your ups stuff off the porch. I can t imagine how many email alerts i would get daily if i had them enabled. Amcrest gives you no starting point for the settings, only a hard to understand plain english explanation of threshold and sensitivity. It s trial and error. Mostly the latter. I finally have mine setup to trigger on motion, which works sort of ok, but when i go to playback, which has it s own challenges, finding a particular event is tedious. A timeline is shown across the bottom of the screen for the past day by default, and motion events are depicted in yellow bars. Very, very faint yellow bars. The playback automatically starts at midnight and fast forward takes forever to happen. You can try to move ahead in time by clicking the timeline with your crappy mouse, but it seems like you must hit a target of one square pixel to do that. The timestamp travels along the timeline with the cursor but it s almost impossible to see since the contrast is non-existent. There is a button called smart search, but i can t make it find anything. I could rattle on about the details but long story short - the software is unintuitive and not well implemented. With all that negative stuff said, i still find some value in the product. Might be because i have no other experience to start from, but the amcrest hardware still impresses me at times. The hd cameras do a decent job with the 2mp they have, even when zoomed in. The night vision is pretty cool and reaches well out. All in all, i think i can make the thing work for me in light of my simple needs and despite it s shortcomings. It is that fact that kept me from lowering my rating to two stars. You may notice that there is no runaway favorite brand or single product in this category, so good luck to you in finding your security system. I hope this helps.

X. Bethany, Schleswig-Holstein says

The hardware works well, once you get everything configured. But configuring is a long, confusing task. The software is ok - however, viewing in the browser doesn't work with any modern browsers . Back to ie :(

N. Alexia, Brighton and Hove

Easy to install and set up (note, as correctly described, this unit does not come with a power supply). . The app works well, the setup of the camera has a lot of options, down to email sending, etc. . What i'd like to have. + upload to google drive (email, ftp only). + more ddns settings (only limited list of services). . What i'd need for it to receive more stars. + ssl certificate installation. + updated firmware (cipher list is outdated, firefox bails, chrome complains)

W. Powell, Barnsley says

This camera doesn't have a power supply come with.

C. Susan, Oregon

I didn't realize this was a black and white camera. Other than that it's an okay camera. The image is good enough at close distances and the ir helps at night. My driveway is about 18 feet long and you could probably tell who someone was if they were standing at the end. I bought a different amcrest poe camera for the other side of the house that works much better. I wouldn't recommend this camera over their other ones. Spend the extra 10 dollars or whatever and go for something better.

K. Patricia, Leicestershire says

Beware! check firmware release on amcrest website. This camera is running 18 month old firmware and does not allow for some of the newer features found in other amcrest poe cameras.

E. Taylor, Swindon

Not what i expected from amcrest in quality. In daylight it performs as i would expect a 2mp wide angle cam. At night it's almost useless. The ir leds project in a tight focused beam giving you a 15 code of extremely bright light in the center of the image. Not what you want in a camera with 128 degree view. Additionally, because the leds project through the clear dome - make sure you thoroughly clean all of the fingerprints from factory assembly off of the inside and outside of the dome or the camera will be completely blind at night. Time will tell how dust accumulation on the outside of the dome will effect the camera at night.

U. Imelda, Essex says

Not the best camera (especially in low light) but it gets the job done at an affordable price point. I've using it with blue iris and it's been a solid performer.

Z. Florence, Iowa

I am very pleased with this camera. The picture is great. The reason for the 3 stars is do to when i received the camera i noticed the lens or front had a gap on one side. I unscrewed it and it was cross threaded on. I didn't feel like dealing with sending it back so i took a small file and filed down some of the bad parts on the thread so it would sit as it should. I have had the camera stop recording a few times as well. This was fixed by scheduling a nightly reboot. Still over all i am happy with the product and plan on buying the a whole nvr setup soon. I just hope the quality control for it is a little better.

Camera seems to work pretty good, but the instructions and software are greatly lacking. I am fairly computer literate, but it took me several tries to get everything right. It was just a pain, and i still need to call customer service with my issue.

F. Moore, Barnet

Motion sensing is sporadic and notifications to my phone are lagging. . Easy setup though and good live viewing via the app. But i really wanted a motion sensor that worked. . Update: motion sensor works better after moving under overhang where rain can't cause a false alarm. Also moves camera closer to the location of the motion. Upgrading from 2 to 3 stars. Still a lag in motion alarms sent using both amcrest cloud and amcrest view.

P. Cassella, Lambeth says

The camera built quality is good. The reason i gave 2 stars is due to its poor night vision capability. The infrared led are not spreading ir light uniformly across field of coverage. Instead ir leds creating a bright spot in the center of the frame. With this the center point of the screen is over lit and surrounding objects are low lit. I have amcrest bullet cameras (ip2m-853ew) where this problem is not persist.

. Rhonda, Montana

I like the video performance, but the mechanical design is so so. Unfortunately, the product support is not good.

. Clara, Mississippi says

Works quite well and is reliable. However, it would have given if 5 stars if the amcrest app would work properly. Not once has it connected to the stupid app. Quite frustrating.
