can I ask which Challenger did you get this from?
Challenger Tampines One and Woodlands Causeway Point..Saw they paste new price tag over the old one for the one i saw at Woodlands Causeway Point.

Seems they have aligned the price as in Sineoji sg website..... Prehaps a recent price review by Challenger.

I have both models PT498 and PT528. The Sineoji 528 model angle is wide...

If I were you, get the 528 model. I paid only $99 from.Challenger..

Will try to show pics of the 2 models viewing my kitchen
My camera view is not so critical as i am just installing for viewing my cat only

But i guess i will follow your advice and get the PT528 instead due to the slight price difference...But if the PT498 is still at $69, i would get that still coz it is most value for the buck.

But the PT528 is smaller right?

But can i see the difference viewing angle on a same location between both of the said models?

Thanks to good reviews of Sineoji/Dean, I have contacted Dean for installation. I even recommended Dean to a friend of mine . He certainly provided good service as many has mentioned in this forum.

Only one observation, he promised to issue the purchase receipt the next day. This is something he never follow up. Sent him a few SMS, which he did acknowledged (to send the receipt). Till today, I has never received the receipt. The friend (who bought 2 cameras direct, not from website) confirmed Dean never issued a receipt.

The receipt is important proof of purchase, for warranty purpose. If Dean is able to honor warranty requests, I am fine with it. Did the online production registration but no further acknowledgement via the website or emails.

For your awareness only.

Sorry if I have overlooked this. Many a times, the invoice or receipt is prepared at the point of delivery or installation. However, there are times where consumers change their mind, for instance, instead of 3 units to 2 units or change models. Hence the invoice that has been prepared has to be revised or reprint.

Nevertheless, the invoice has been reprinted or revised and is ready for collection or rather email over. I may have overlooked this as the entire month was a busy month. PM me your name as well as your friend and I will request the finance to email over to you.

Thank you.

It's likely your modem router band steering is enabled. Disable band steering and use a different SSID for 2.4ghz and 5ghz should do the trick.The Ipcam only works with 2.4ghz.

Hi guys,

can you please recommend me a good IP camera. It would need to have a stable wireless connection and be wide angle (I don't really like PTZ). My main requirement is that I can record to my Asustor NAS and it can have motion detection.

I currently have a samsung smart cam and although the quality is good, I am unable to use motion detection and so have 24/7 recording.

Price-wise I'm ok with anything.

Thanks!
