purchased both the DLink and Sineoji and set it up yesterday, both the HD versions.

The DLink wins hands down in low light and even total darkness. The Sineoji on the other hand, failed in the same test. Day time was comparable for both.

Mobile app wise, the DLink app is quite limited, i.e. one camera view, cannot one-click pan/tilt, presets, etc but the Sineoji can do all of that.

Looks like I have go to third party apps to get all those functions on my D-Link then...

hi guys,

i have a requirement here, and reading about all the cameras / software here, i need to check with the gurus here on their opinion:

Purpose
1)To install wireless IP cam to catch vandals - my car has been scratched before in my HDB MSCP.
2) IP cam will be position to cover left and right side of car. Front and rear will be handled by my dedicated in car DVR operating 24/7.
3) This will allow me to have as close to 360 degrees of coverage as possible.

Requirements:
1) Wireless IP cam with WIFI & Night Vision - my car park is dimly lit at night
2) Can be powered by portable battery pack (eg 10,000mah battery pack), or can be connected to car's battery directly
3) I can log in any time (PC, android) to view the cams in my car
4) Good to have - auto upload to NAS / NVR, either in car or wireless thru 3G - I have a spare SIM card that can use up to 30gb of data plan per mth. If NAS/NVR is in car, additional power requirements would have to be taken in consideration.

Items shortlisted:
1) 2 x T7838WIP
2) I will be using a 3G mobile wifi with battery pack in car - good for 6-8hrs (M5350 - Welcome to TP-LINK)
Equipped with a built-in 3G modem - No other bulky devices required
HSPA+ supported with up to 21.6Mbps download and 5.76Mbps upload speeds
Powerful 2000mAh battery is ideal for extended hours of outdoor use

Questions:
1) how do i power both T7838WIP cams? Can i wire a battery pack to them ? (eg: 10,000 mah battery to each) Or can i plug them to my car battery for 24/7 monitoring?
2) Placement of the cams - where would be ideal? And not interfere with regular driving.



thanks in adv.

Note T7838WIP LENS is 3.6mm. May not be wide enuff. Perhaps install an actual all round car surveillance camera from car workshop may cost you lesser in overall cost.

I've done a testing for marix using their battery pack on T7892WIP. It lasted a whopping near 13hrs. But for T7838WIP, it didn't last up to 11 hrs. For 32gb microsd card, recording is more than enuff.

Note that anything that happens, you will surely retrieve the clips within 24hrs.

Hi

I was browsing taobao, and saw that some of the vendors are selling IP Cameras with calling functions. See the link http://detail.tmall.com/item.htm?spm...d55e27b&pm_id=

Has anyone bought one of these before? Appreciate any feedback on the quality of the product.

Bro geckoSG

Any chance you getting the T7833WIP with optical zoom? I finally used thee CNY break to set it up outside my house and I must say I'm impressed with the clarity and night vision mode. I don't mind getting one or two units more.
