The angle is so wide covering slightly more than 2-90 degree walls (H=111 degree) that if you positioned the cameras strategically you can have less cameras and eliminate the more expensive PTZ cameras as well.

The issue here is whether you really need surveillance or monitoring in meeting your need.

Note that there's an error (I think) in the spec regarding its H & V angles. If you check out its video you'll find the discrepancy.

Ok, here's my short review of the SAMSUNG SAMSUNG SNH-P6140BN ip camera.

Started the camera at 5.30am this morning.


Part 1

Strengths

1) Wide angle and has IR - meets my needs.
2) Very easy to setup. No worry of any ip address and setting port forwarding in router.
3) Camera settings, even edited, are retained across different devices like laptop and multiple handphones as you only need to access SAMSUNG server to view them
4) Allows dual band WiFi selection (i.e. 2.4 & 5 GHz)
5) Video movement is smooth with no stuttering. My home internet connection is M1 300Mbps fibre BB with ASUS AC68U dual band router. The camera was set using 5GHz

Weaknesses

1) Cannot record to external storage (NAS/DVR) and cloud
2) Comes with 4x digital zoom
3) Cannot achieve FHD for video (H.264) using home WiFi when connecting camera wirelessly to my router and Note 3. Even using Ethernet to connect from camera to router still unable to achieve FHD. Video is 1280x720 only running in HQ mode. FHD can only be achieved using laptop.
4) Cannot use 3rd-party software to view multiple cameras at the same time.


Notes in proper exiting the SmartCam program when using Samsung Note 3. Samsung S4 mini do not have these issues.

1) No quit/exit button in SmartCam program. So if you quit/exit abruptly when in video mode the SmartCam program will hang and have difficulty in starting up again unless you quit the internet connection
2) If the video is in landscape mode on your handphone and you quit/exit using the back button on the handphone the SmartCam program will hang and have difficulty in starting again unless you quit the internet connection

The right way to exit/quit is to have the video in portrait mode and then use the back button on the handphone to back till it reaches the menu page. Then exit the SmartCam program.


Part 2

1) Heat issue - Came back at about 6.30 pm. Overall camera is slightly warm except the back where heat escapes through the openings which is slightly hot
2) 2-way audio - Very clear 2-way communication after re-testing
3) To test SD card recording
4) To test motion detection

Got another camera today.

Wide angle helps but PTZ is invaluable to me. Even with PTZ, I usually have at least 2 cameras per room and I still find that my kids can be off cameras. For my living room for example, I have 4 cameras and still can't see my kids sometimes.

Of course if your kids hide under the bed then 10 cameras also cannot see ah, right?

Your cameras' horizontal angle must be small (like my DLINK cameras) or you have not located the cameras strategically. Alternatively, re-arrange your furniture/wardrobe to prevent dead angles.

Software no problem. Just know the correct way to quit when using Note 3 will do lah. S4 mini do not have such issues.

It supports up to 64GB of microSDXC (FAT32) memory card

Tested with a few seconds of lag even using home WiFi network but video is smooth without stutter. WiFi tested with smooth video in my office. StarHub 4G too. Tested with Singtel 3G (with H+) and video is smooth too

That's the thing. My kids are not even attempting to hide. They could be just reading, playing etc. in a corner or blind spot. The only camera that I have that can cover one room (a small room though) is my dLink DCS-6010L camera in fish-eye mode. Even then, I can't see them if they are sitting down or behind a desk. Outside, I can have one camera covering the 4 car park spaces in my pouch, but that means I can't see the gate nor the sides of the house.

Anyway, I bought the Samsung camera for testing. Robert Chou's program IP Cam Viewer supports Samsung cameras but not SNH-P6410BN model. Will see if other models work.
