    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Camera
    Reviewed in the United States on 20 February 2020
    So I bought this Amcrest IP5M-T1179EW-28MM for my hotel business at one of the locations where the Lorex system is installed, which was also installed by me. One of my Lorex LNE8950ABW camera was destroyed in building fire a few months ago, so I decided to give this Amcrest IP5M-T1179EW-28MM a try as it was also 60% less in cost compared to the LNE8950ABW camera.

    Quality:
    Excellent build quality, strong overall housing.
    I can’t believe the image quality is as good at the Lorex 8MP camera given this is a 5MP camera.
    Starlight sensor provides better visibility at night in color and works better than the black and white night vision. I get clearer images for faces, cars, and license plates for farther distances at night.

    Connection:
    Directly connected to my Lorex LNR616 using an ethernet cable, and it worked out of the box!
    You do not need a DVR or NVR for this camera to work. You can plug this camera on a POE network switch or buy a POE injector for a regular switch/router/access point to supply power, Video, and audio all over a single network cable.

    Access:
    I use the browser on my desktop to access settings. Still, you can also access this camera and setup page via local web interface over a browser, Amcrest View Pro app, Amcrest Surveillance pro, or Amcrest Cloud. The mobile app is straightforward to use, and it guides you step by step.

    Audio:
    The built-in mic is susceptible to picking up audio. I can hear the customers even outside the night window.

    Storage:
    I am currently using this camera with SDCard of 256GB with snapshots uploaded to local FTP onsite data sever, H265 compression helps keep the files 40% smaller and get more playback time. There are also other various storage options available that are handy when needed.

    Interface:
    Clean web UI and functionality, I must say more than my Lorex NVR.

    I am so impressed with the value received for the quality and price. I will look into, Standalone license plate capture camera (if they have one) as I am using my current lorex camera with openALPR but it is not doing a job at capturing license plates and smart home video doorbell, as the two doorbells I use at the hotel that customers have to press to receive service as my current ones keep dying every few months due to rough and frequent use by customers including direct sun heat they get 5 hrs a day.

    Love about this camera:
    This camera is capable of standalone operation. This means you do not need an NVR to make the camera work. It has a built-in NVR functionality. It can also detect motion, record video clips to a microSD card, send an email and push notifications, even upload to an FTP server.
    Lorex cameras cannot do any of this. Without an NVR or another device like NAS to store the video, there’s no point in buying one. Also, since they have ONVIF support, they should theoretically work with any ONVIF-compliant NVR.

    Overall:
    I would purchase a camera and would recommend anyone looking for excellent quality and functionality products for a valued price.

    I got this camera as an upgrade for the Amcrest IP3M-956 that I use to monitor my driveway. The IP3M-956 is a nice camera, but it didn’t have the resolution to read license plates on cars driving by, and the night vision left a bit lacking. I could see pretty well at night—particularly after adding a separate IR blaster to widen the illuminated area—but only in black and white, which makes it much harder to identify people or features.

    This camera was a definite improvement in overall resolution; the colors are much brighter and more vivid and now I can use color mode at night. I’m attaching a short video at night with the old camera, and also some snapshots with this camera to highlight the differences. I’m MUCH happier in that regard.

    As you can see in the attached daylight photos, the daytime resolution is better, but still not enough to make out a license plate in good light at 60’. I guess that’s just more than can be expected from a camera at this price point. But the other big difference, one that I wasn’t anticipating, is the much larger field of view with this camera. I’m much happier with the more “square” picture that provides a much wider view down the street.

    I’m using this camera with AI-HomeGuard surveillance software, rather than Amcrest’s own software. While I noticed the Amcrest software is significantly improved from the old model (including working just fine with Chrome, whereas the old one required a clunky add-on), the AI-HomeGuard is simply genius in identifying meaningful motions and pretty much eliminating false positives. I previously used Blue Iris surveillance software, and found all the options overwhelming—and still creating way too many false positives. But whichever software choice you make, this camera works fine with them (and also works fine with the Amcrest Pro mobile phone software which can be handy).

    Since this was replacing an already-in-place hardwired camera, installation was easy. This is not clear from the product description, but you don’t HAVE to use POE (power over Ethernet); it also allows for connecting to a wall-wart power supply (but it doesn’t include the power supply, and the connector is semi-proprietary). If you do want to install with POE, you’ll need to purchase a separate POE injector or POE switch. Note that there is no wireless (wi-fi) option with this camera, though I personally see that as a plus. (Since you have to provide a source of power, it might as well be an Ethernet cable, and then you have a more reliable connection and don’t bog down your wifi.)

    The camera itself appears to be solid construction. It remains to be seen if it’s as weather-resistant as my old one (which has operated fine for 2 years), but the design looks good. I was coming from a “dome” camera that has the advantage of being vandal-resistant, but since this is mounted pretty high up, I’m not worried about someone reaching up and changing the aim of the camera. (Whereas I’d have second thoughts about this design on my porch, where it would be easy to reach.) For that application, it’s much easier to adjust the camera aim, and if need be, to change the micro-SD card (which is MUCH easier to do on this camera than my old one) or hard-reset the device. Speaking of which, I love that this camera allows for recording to the internal SD card (up to 256GB). I have it set to record 24/7 to the SD card, and then use the AI HomeGuard software to record motion only.

    Overall, if you’re looking for an IP camera and don’t want/need a wifi-connected model, this seems to be an excellent choice.

    I bought this to replace a Hikvision network camera I bought 5 years ago, mounted at my balcony, and connected to my Blue Iris surveillance software. Since I already had my network cable (with PoE injection port) in place, I was expecting a plug-and-play operation. And it mostly was. But my progress was slowed by a few quirks.

    First issue is the documentation. It's fairly high quality, but the problem is, it's generic in nature, and Amcrest has very many cameras. It makes reference to copying the serial number or scanning the QR code on the back of the camera in order to connect the camera to your mobile app. Problem is, there is none to be found on the camera! I looked in the box, and none was there either. Then I looked at the plain brown box itself. There was a label there (which actually looked more like a shipping label, because it had my address on it), and there was what looked like a QR code and some random characters. That turned out to be it. So don't throw out your box!

    Second issue was, there is no status light on the camera. So when I first plugged in my Ethernet cable, I had no visual indication that it was receiving power. I thought for sure it was dead on arrival.

    I was about to pack it all up, when I decided I would log in to my router and see what IP addresses were assigned. Lo and behold, there was a new IP address, assigned to a device name starting with "AMC"! Could that be it? Was the camera active? I opened a web browser to that IP address, and sure enough, it was working!

    So I added the new camera in Blue Iris (tapping into the camera's RTSP stream), and got my glimpse of this camera's glorious resolution. It was a huge upgrade compared to my Hikvision's 1080p resolution. I could make out the letters of the stop sign across the street -- something I couldn't do before. Even more impressive, when I have my house's front lights on, the camera doesn't even need to switch to monochrome night vision -- everything is still in color!

    At this price, this is a no-brainer purchase. While I cannot comment too much on the mobile app, cloud storage service, or even the camera's built-in features (because I don't use them), I can tell you that it works exceptionally well with software like Blue Iris. Just keep in mind the point I made above.

    For the price, it's a 5-star product, but I'm docking one star due to the spotty documentation and lack of a status light.

    To start, this is a great camera that has all the features you'll need. I compared it side-by-side with another Amcrest camera that this one replaced (IP4M-1028EW-36MM). Both day and night, the picture quality is excellent. I was most impressed by how well the LEDs for the night vision worked. I'm used to my other cameras with 18 IR LEDs that create more of a spotlight effect, rather than a flood where it's very bright in the center, but then the light dims quickly the further you go out, they aren't the greatest at night. When this one only came with 2 LEDs, I thought it would be worse, quite the opposite though. This camera does an incredible job of night vision. The 2 LEDs provide more of a flood effect with no visible hotspots that uniformly light up the entire area (see pictures, there is a second light in the image, to light up the yard's furthest part). With a 2.8mm focal length, it does a great job of displaying the entire area. You can see a lot more at the top and bottom versus the 3.6mm but less on the sides. It's closer to a "fish-eye" kind of view. The audio is good if there is no wind, it will pick up the slightest breeze, but it does an excellent job of picking up the sound around it. The picture is excellent quality, but I did notice the video was a bit laggier than the 4mp cameras that I had. This camera would typically lag about 4-5 seconds, whereas the others were about 2 seconds (The settings can probably be adjusted to make that better though. I just used the default settings).

    I had this set up using an Amcrest NVR with PoE. The setup was simple, plugged it in, clicked remote devices, the camera was listed there, selected it and clicked add. That was it, I had it working in a few minutes. There are 2 things I am not a fan of with the housing. First, there is no way to tighten the camera once you have it in the place you want. The camera is stiff to move, but it would be nice to tighten it so it cannot move. The second is the "quick connect" mounting plate. You can take the camera off by pushing on a tab and pulling the camera out. No tools are needed to take the camera down. To install the camera, you screw a plate to the wall/ceiling and then slide the camera onto that plate. It makes installation quick and simple but makes removing the camera all that much easier. You can choose not to use the plate and attach the camera directly; however, the holes from the screws do not sit flush on the surface, so I was worried the plastic would crack because of the gap. I wish there were a way to screw/lock the tab so you would at least need some tool to remove it if desired.

    Besides those 2 minor things, this camera is excellent, and I would highly recommend getting it.

    Pros:
    Incredible night vision with only 2 leds (lights up the whole area evenly)
    Large up/down FOV (more of a fish eye view)
    Great quality video

    Cons:
    Any amount of wind will cause noise with the microphone
    Not a fan of the housing
