TP-Link NC260

TechLife Australia - - THE WALL -

AN AF­FORD­ABLE DAY-NIGHT CAM­ERA.

SHOP AROUND AND you can pick up the NC260 for as lit­tle as $90, and it’s eas­ily found un­der $100. The cam­era fea­tures a 1280 x 720 res­o­lu­tion, and a 113-de­gree field of view, by way of a 1/4-inch CMOS sen­sor. It also has night vi­sion, a mi­cro­phone for au­dio record­ing, and sound and move­ment de­tec­tion. Both sound and au­dio qual­ity are ex­cel­lent for the price, but those crav­ing high de­tail should go for a 1080p model. The eas­i­est way to con­nect the cam­era is via the built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi, but there is also a LAN port for wired con­nec­tions. It also in­cludes a DC ex­ten­sion ca­ble, which makes it a lit­tle eas­ier to in­stall in out-of-the-way lo­ca­tions. The unit can stream footage to a NAS or else­where for re­mote view­ing, or record it lo­cally with an op­tional SD card. TP-Link has an app avail­able that al­lows the cam­era to be con­trolled and viewed re­motely, as well as en­abling two-way com­mu­ni­ca­tions via a built-in speaker.
