Compro TN60W Cloud IP Camera Review
Chris Hadley+ / 8 months ago
In today’s society, security is everything – be it from a simple pass code on your phone, through to wireless encryption right up to firewalls and CCTV monitoring. The latter is one aspect of security that many of us don’t realise is massive, wherever you go these days – especially in built up areas such as towns and cities, its very hard to avoid the fact that you’re caught on camera virtually every step of the way – mostly without realising it.
With technology moving forward, gone are the days of having camera that simply connect via a BNC connection giving just video to a remote monitor. In today’s high-tech environment and with networks and the internet becoming faster and more advanced, connecting these cameras up to one sophisticated monitoring system is very much the norm, but tearing the system down into it’s simplest form, having network cameras is more of an advantage for home and small office environments as the cost if integrating such systems is far less costly and easier to manage than before.
Compro have been around for a number of years and one of the product highlights is their range of small, easy to set-up IP cameras that can be placed virtually anywhere, giving a live feed from one or more cameras on a single desktop with no advanced software needed.
The TN60W that we’re looking at today is one of their latest models, offering not only infra-red night vision, but also wireless or standalone recording capabilities, streaming to remote systems over the internet such as smart-phones and also a two way audio link to fend off unwanted visitors or troublemakers.
The TN60W comes with a comprehensive set of accessories for installation including power and LAN cables, a small Wireless-N USB dongle, screws and wall-plugs for wall mounted installation, a quick start guide, wireless installation guide and a CD with the manuals and iWizard installer for setting up the camera.
