TENVIS JPT3815W-HD Wireless Surveillance IP/Network Security Camera Review
TENVIS has its JPT3815W-HD wireless surveillance security camera for indoor use only. It doubles as a baby monitor thanks to is ability to expand its view with pan and tilt controls.
Two-way audio lets you speak to whoever’s in the room. This works for party guests, pets or young children. You can download an app to accomplish all of this remotely.
All you need to do is set up the camera on a tabletop close to a power outlet. After a few installation steps, you’re ready to keep an eye on most of the room. If you choose the right corner or wall, you could have a near-complete view of what’s going on. Night vision infrared sensors expand the view to complete darkness or nearly dark conditions.
Once you unpack the camera from its box, plug it into an outlet. Then plug the network cable into your Wi-Fi router to configure the wireless settings. After that, move the camera wherever you want to in the house just as long as it picks up the wireless connection and remains plugged in.
Download the app to your smartphone and start viewing and controlling the camera.
