Need peace of mind while you’re at home or away? TRENDnet offers the TV-IP8S1 WIC, a wireless cloud camera that can keep track of what’s going on around the house. You can connect the camera to any network through Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) and it will start recording the area you place it in. The camera can pan 340 degrees from side to side and tilt 11 S degrees up and down. At night, it has a vision of up to 7.S meters. You can also program motion detection recording, choose when it starts recording, and get an alert via email if something is going on through the included SecurView Pro software, which can support up to 32 TRENDnet cameras. Away from home? You can also monitor what’s going on through your smartphone or tablet by downloading the Cloud App for either iOS or Android.
