JennJenn 4 Wouldn’t work on my home network
The camera itself is sturdy and the lights lit up. However, my husband and I were not able to get it to connect to our home network. We followed the directions, reached out to customer service (which responded promptly with suggestions on set up) and even asked a tech savvy friend for help. Nothing we tried worked for us.
Kellyjames 1 Was very dissatisfied with the camera
I received this camera a month ago....was very dissatisfied with the the quality of the product..... wouldn't waste my money buying this camera..... Save your money and upgrade to a better quality of camera... hard to install as no direction included
Tajjie 3 Not the easiest instructions
This is a very nice looking camera. It is put together very well and looks like it will last a long time if outside in the weather. The directions that came with the camera are very simple and a little bit confusing to follow but its nothing that you can't find the answer to with a little searching. I wouldn't really consider it wireless since it has to be plugged in so hopefully there is a power source close to where you want to place it. It has a good picture on it and does what it should.
ddsmommy83 4 Love this security camera!
I love this security camera! I has pretty good picture quality and has good night vision. It is wireless besides the power cord you have to plug in, but if you don't plug it into something with a ethernet, you can only watch it from your phone on the app. The directions aren't the best at explaining everything so be prepared to get on the website to figure it all out. I'm not a big fan of the app and wish I would've known before I got it all put up on the house that I can't see it on my television because I didn't plug it in with a ethernet cable beforehand. The app isn't as helpful as I feel it should be and I've lost all my footage several times with no explanation. The camera sometimes stops recording and I can't figure out why. I just wish they would fix the app and make it a little easier to use and add more features to it. Should do a little better job explaining how to hook it up and use it on not only your phone but a television or monitor too. The camera has a reset button but it is on the camera itself, so if you have it outside on your house somewhere, you will have to take it down or figure a way to get to it again to reset or get the memory card. It comes with a memory card but when I try to find old videos taken on the app they're just gone and says there is no footage. I don't want to have to climb up on my home and try to get the memory card out of the camera to see if the footage is on it, but I feel like the app should do better at saving old videos. Just fix a few bugs within the app and this would be a great camera. Even with the problems with the app, we will buy another of these cameras.
4 Great product
Other than a little speed bump scanning the bar code (phone problem) this is a terrific product. Easy to set up. Simple to use app. Great price point too! I had it working in no time! The picture quality is terrific!
rizzard70 5 Nice remote unit
I have this camera set up to monitor my shed in the back yard. I was having animals get under my fence and with the camera I was able to identify them and then fix that issue. It has a clear image and was impressed how simple this was to set up.

zukus 3 Cheap means of getting monitoring of one location
I went on the cheap and just got a single camera. I was only interested in seeing what was happening on my porch. Since this is only a camera it did not come with a fancy console and software to power it by. I have an android phone so I was able to download an app to the phone. Luckily they have documentation for this online as when I attempted to do a setup without it I was totally lost.
Both your defender 2K and your android device neet to be on the same wifi or wired network for the initial setup. Doing the wifi setup was fairly easy.
This version of the device/android app did not allow me to use cloud storage so I was forced to use the 16G card on the device. I went to set this up and it refused to format. I later went back to the setup and it couldn't even find the memory card anymore. After unplugging the device I was able to re-seat the memory card and then successfully format it.
I set this up to record when it detects motion. It seems to be very accurate at detecting motion and I get a signal on my cell phone whenever an event like this happens. Now that the memory card is working I can go on the app and go to a video clip that starts about 10 seconds before the motion event. The quality of the play back is good enough for me to tell who someone is.
After the initial setup were I was cursing this device I must say that I have come to like it much more. It does what I wanted it to do.
When you are looking at a live feed there appears to be about a 2- 3 second lag between an even happening and it actually showing on the screen.l
I wish that the power cord that came with this had been longer. It was long enough for me to get the device to run yet I did not have enough cord to dress and hide it properly. I will probably need to go to radio shack and see if I can get an extension type cord for this, I'm not certain what the connector type is but I feel pretty certain that I can get the proper type of cord to just extend this without going to a thick conventional power extension cord.
If you want something for just one location and one purpose (I wanted to see when my packages arrived and if they were stolen) this is a very inexpensive means of accomplishing this.
Tonaylors 5 Easy to install!
I received the Defender 2K Wireless IP Camera free of charge in exchange for an honest review. I installed the security camera in my backyard to monitor my rear sliding door. The Defender 2K Wireless IP Camera was very easy to install, using just a small drill and several screws. The setup and connection was fast and easy to do on my IPhone. I would recommend the Defender 2K Wireless Camera to anyone looking for a simple, easy to use security Camera!
xuan732 4 Good video
This video camera as far as the equipment goes was easy to set up out of the box. The camera feels very sturdy and durable. I had no issues connecting to my wifi.
My only issue was downloading the app, to my cell phone. There were several apps with this name, so it was hard figuring out which was the correct one to download. After getting the right app downloaded the rest was easy to login in and set up. The video looks, nice and clear. There isn't any audio with this camera. Which isn't really that important, you can clearly see who is in your house.
You can place the camera outside or inside. If you place it outside it does have the small covering over the top to help protect. I chose to install mine inside only because I don't have any type of awning, where it would be better protected from the constant rainy weather here.
This is so convenient when you are out or away on a trip. You just log into the app, and you can see the live feed. The app also doesn't have a video cloud where you can go back several days to watch video. It does have an SD card slot for storing video so you can choose to store some video that way, but that is also dependant on your SD card. Depends on the size of the SD card your amount of stored footage will vary. You can also change all those settings to your preference in the app. If you add other Defender cameras then you can also add it on to the same app, and view the second camera footage as well.
Overall the camera works great, and the video quality is good.
courier30 4 good quality cameras
I purchased two of these cameras a month ago, and I am very pleased with them. good day and night vision, good metal housing. does go off line somestimes, have to go completely out of app and back in to reconnect. like them so well, I ordered the 4 channel dvr 3 camera system.
missykins 5 Great Camera!
With a rash of car break-ins in neighboring communities in my town, I've been wanting to get a camera to keep an eye on the outside of my house - especially when I may not be there. I thought the Defender 2K (4MP) Wireless IP Camera may be a good camera to start with - and I was right. First of all, installation (from the camera itself to the app for your phone) was fairly simple and relatively fast. The picture on the app was almost immediate and it shows everything well for the quality - I was especially impressed with the imaging at night. If there was one thing that was a bit of a challenge for us, it was the power hook-up, but that was more because of my house set-up rather than an issue with this actual product. My two favorite features is getting notified when motion is detected and the fact that there's no monthly subscription for the service, which is a HUGE plus in my book. Overall, this is a great product and comes highly recommended.
Smurfboy 5 Superior Picture quality and easy to setup
As an employee of the company that owns this brand, I volunteered to participate in the testing of this product and wanted to share my honest review.”
The setup is easy although i have to use wired connection to setup but it was easy to do. The picture quality is superb in day and night.
