A solid 1080P PTZ IP camera with night vision from Amcrest
By Jack Chu
[[VIDEOID:8a3465aab67afd2d87377908548e14db]] I bought this Amcrest IP2M-841 mainly to check on our baby in the crib when I'm not in the room. The IP camera needs to have HD video with good night vision view so we can monitor the room 24 hours.
The package contains Amcrest IP2M-841 IP camera, Ethernet cable, Power adapter/cable, Mounting kit (Mounting bracket and screws), CD/quick start guide, and User manual. The power adapter/cable is 10 feet long, which makes it easy to find a good spot without worrying power source. This camera does offer night vision although the IR LEDs aren't visible. On the bottom part of the camera, there are Ethernet port, Alert IO, Audio IN/OUT, memory card slot, and power port. Do note that the package doesn't include memory card.
To setup the camera is pretty easy. 1. Connect the IP camera to router through Ethernet port (I highly recommend do NOT do first-time setup using the wireless way). 2. Connect the power supply and wait for the camera to be ready. 3. Download and install "Amcrest Pro View" app and setup the camera through in app instructions ( Connect smartphone to same device as wired connection, scan QR code for serial number, and establish connection to camera). The IP camera can also be setup through PC if you're familiar with finding IP address of device. If not, Amcrest website does offer an utility to help user to locate device IP on the network. For me, I found the easiest way is to check router for connected device and see which one is the newly pop-up right after connecting the IP camera to network.
- 1080P enables to see more detail compare to older IP cameras. This is fairly important as I'll be using this as a baby monitor so I can check on baby's small movements. Night view is quite good on this camera and I can see things with 10 feet clearly (I haven't tried further away). Please see my video and pictures for a demo of day/night view quality on this camera. The video is smooth at 30 FPS and no lag when there is object moving.
- PTZ support. Pan/Tilt/Zoom is supported on this camera and it helps to check the area without physically moving the camera. The "zoom" is digital zoom, not optical zoom.
- Wide 90 degree field of view. It's always better to see as much as possible on a single screen.
- Build-in Microphone and speaker. This makes 2 way audio communication possible through App.
- Motion alerts, Email alerts and snapshots. Also notification alert support through their App. Detection zone and sensitivity can be adjusted for motion alert triggering. Amcrest cloud offers up to 4 hour recording free for 1 IP camera. Free DDNS service is included.
- This model only supports 2.4GHz WiFi.
- This model doesn't offer POE (Power over Ethernet).

I LOVE this camera and here's why
Our baby monitor stopped charging about 6 months into being used, but our daughter was sleeping through the night so we never bothered to replace it. Fast forward about a year later and we are transitioning her into her toddler bed. My husband wanted to have a monitor in there since she's a crazy sleeper and wanted to be able to check in on her so the search for a new monitor began. Our requirements for the monitor were that it should have 2 way talk, excellent picture quality, and the ability to pan/ tilt. Bonus points for showing the temperature in the room and being able to view it on our phones. After doing a ridiculous amount of research and reading countless reviews, we decided just to get an IP camera instead! Another grueling search lead me to the Amcrest IP2M-841 ProHD 1080P. It's been about a week and here are the things we like/ don't like so far...
-Easy set up. I'd say that it probably takes about 5 mins to actually set this up. The hardest part for me was actually following directions and not just skipping things. For example, when it says that the default username and password is admin, that means you should actually type in admin for both and not just try to set up your own username and password... LOL
-Picture quality is excellent. The night vision is a little grainy when viewed from a desktop, but it's clear enough for me to see if my daughter has her eyes opened or closed and looks really clear on my phone.
-2 way talk. This was one of the main things we wanted to have in the camera so that we could tell our daughter to go back to bed without having to go upstairs every 5 seconds.
-Able to view on the desktop as well as on our phones. Even though I almost always have my phone close by, I work on my laptop late into the night, so it's nice to be able to check in on her without draining my battery on my phone.
-Customer service. Not nearly the painful experience I thought it was going to be and they fixed my problem. What a novel concept!!
-Failed to connect. After the first couple of hours, the app on my phone would constantly give me the error message "Failed to Connect" each time I tried to view the live feed. I finally gave in and called customer service. Surprisingly, the wait wasn't horrible and the fix was super easy. All I had to do was log in on the desktop and do a manual reboot of the system. I did that on the first day and it hasn't given me the error message since.
-Desktop program doesn't work on chrome. Ugh...
NOT SO MUCH CONS, BUT I WISH IT HAD:
-Completely wireless. I know I could get a camera that doesn't have the power cord, but I would have to give up quality, but I just wish I could have the same camera without an ugly power cord.
-White. Apparently this camera comes in white even though the options given were only black and silver. When searching to forward the info for a friend, I found the white option and it was Prime....
The baby monitor breaking on us was probably one of the best things that could have happened. For half the price of a new baby monitor, we got almost everything we wanted! We took care of that issue by getting one of these :https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01FT6YWDA/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1. In fact, my husband loves it so much, we'll be purchasing more for the rest of the house and front door.

This is the one!
This is the one! I've purchased 3 surveillance cameras with the intent of monitoring my girlfriends retail art supply business. She has people stealing $35 tubes of oil paint, $40 sable brushes and so on. All of the other cameras were junk. They were difficult to set up, had little to no customer support and just wouldn't fit the bill for decent surveillance. They all had to go back, one wouldn't even power on after hooking up.
This Amcrest is different though. I had to set up on PC first and then connect a tablet. The software is more versatile than anything I've seen. It was somewhat intuitive and extremely flexible. You can even select certain zones for the lens to NOT monitor during motion detection. The store owner is somewhat computer savvy, but not overly so and had no problems with the operation and adjustment of this camera's parameters. It records to a micro-SD and monitors movement at night after she closes. She has already seen her landlord enter after hours and roam around her store, unannounced. He is on film now...
From my experience, I recommend to just spend the money for this camera if you want something decent. The cheaper ones just won't do it and you'll barely even be able to decipher the ill-written instructions, much less speak with someone you'll be able to understand IF you can contact anyone in the first place. This camera was miles above anything else I've attempted to set up!
