    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.

    This camera is going to be the first of many for me. I have invested in a few different brands since purchasing our home about 3 years ago. Im an IT professional, so IP cameras have always interested me, but entry cost was a huge factor. I started with a Swann DVR system since I am no stranger to running cables. Cheapish entry point, built in recording, etc. Time goes on and they show their age fast, images get blurry/heavy artifacts as cables flex too much in the hot/cold cycle. The bundle of 8 cables leaving a makeshift security closet was ugly and unsustainable.

    When the camera arrived, it was very similar to professional ip cameras I have unboxed for work in the past. Solid casing, mounting template and mounting bracket, option for flush mount with cable out the side or through the backing wall. Ethernet connector has an assembly to make it weather resistant, with optional power-in port.

    I swapped it out in a spot where a Swann bullet camera had been, above our second story. This is not the ideal placement for a camera like this, as it would benefit at being down low to get the most out of its resolution, but i was looking for a wide angle to cover the entire south side of the house. 2.8mm viewing angles tend to do just that!

    Setup is as easy or complex as you want to make it. I didn't install a micro sd card inside the camera as i would be running video to my NAS. I plugged it in, opened the app, scanned the QR code on the cable, and I was already looking at my camera! I assigned it a manual IP since i have a dedicated IoT network to keep things segmented and logged into the camera via its web address. Built in console is complete and in depth. Changed my detection area settings, schedule, name, and logo placements on the image.

    The part that made this a for-sure for me was its ability to integrate. Alexa is nice and all, but this integrates natively with Synology Diskstation NAS's. I logged into Synology Surveillance Station and searched for new cameras. Within 5 seconds it populated the camera, and loaded everything it knew about the device. Swann cant do that. They don't even offer an RTSP protocol option, so I had to jump through hoops for days to get it to even see the Swann. They do not want you dealing with any other storage than their own NVR's. Amcrest software starts by asking if you want to save to SD card, maybe make your computer an NVR, send files to a network location or NAS. Why WOULDNT you want to use whatever you want?!

    Image quality is great, night vision is NEXT LEVEL. I turned off the IR for a bit and it still looked amazing. Mic is sensitive to the point that even from above the second floor, i could hear frogs in the nearby ditch. 20fps is silky smooth with natural movement even for fast cars going past. H.265 compression saves so much space over H.264 and is the most modern option to use.

    I have given my coax system a time limit to live, because one ethernet line to the garage fed into a PoE switch looks MUCH better than the 4 light duty coax cables there now. I still have the safety of my UPS backing up the cameras during an outage as one PoE switch on the backup will keep them powered up centrally.

    For the price, you cant go wrong dipping your toe into the IP cam waters with this camera. I sent a picture to an older coworker of mine, and within 10 mins of showing her, it was in her cart. You will not regret this camera.

    Great camera! Easy Install and setup! Great picture quality! I bought the Amcrest 5MP UltraHD (IP5M-T1179EW-28MM) and I am extremely impressed with the performance of this Amcrest camera considering that it cost less than $50. There was a recent theft in my neighborhood and some kids ringing doorbells and running off at night (frightening my wife when I’m at work). My existing cameras captured a very poor and brief image of the criminal’s vehicle so I decided it was time to up my game. I really liked how I can use this one camera without committing to a large multiple camera NVR system and installation. There are so many different ways to view the live feed and recordings even when I am out of the house and get an alert/snapshot.

    Unboxing: My initial impression is that the camera is extremely well built, and it seems quite durable. The plastic housing is hard. The lens angle adjusts easily along multiple axis, and stays exactly where I point it. There are instructions in the box, a mounting template with hardware and plenty of guidance on the Amcrest site. The connections and the cover for the reset and MicroSD card slot are well protected and sealed up tight. I have no concerns about water getting inside.

    Mounting/Wiring: Even though it can be mounted fine without it, I opted to mount it on an Amcrest AMCPFB203W wall mount bracket. I have brick and new vinyl siding so running a ton of wires with large connectors was not something I wanted to do. I put the connectors inside the wall mount, and connected the mount to a wooden corner bracket I made and stained to blend in with the brick. I then attached it all with one screw/molly. I mounted it near a gutter so I could hide the cable behind and along the downspout. I ran the cable along the foundation under some decorative rocks, into the house near the dryer vent and connected it to my network. I really appreciate the flexibility that the ONVIF/RTSP compatible cameras allows for installation and operation.

    PoE is AWESOME!: The camera can be connected/powered using Power over Ethernet (PoE) with a PoE injector or switch, or regular Ethernet with a separate power cord. With PoE, I was able drill one tiny hole for the Cat6 cable and then crimp the RJ45 Ethernet connector on myself and have power and data all in one network cable. You shouldn’t have to turn your home into Swiss cheese in order to feel safe and secure. PoE allows you to install cameras without destroying your home! I highly suggest getting a crimping tool for anyone running Ethernet cables. The RJ45 connector requires at least a 5/8 inch (16mm) hole. If you can put your own connector on after you run the wire through something, you can drill less than a ¼ inch (6mm) hole. You can get a spool of cable and make your cables any length you want. Since it is always powered with PoE, it can capture recorded video before the motion starts and I don't have to get on the ladder to change batteries like I do with my other cameras.
    Setup: The camera can be auto detected by most software. There is also a QR code or serial number (be aware that the QR and S/N are on the tag attached to the cord and not the camera body itself). The Amcrest View Pro software was simple to configure on my android phone. I also tried a demo version of Blue Iris I installed on a Windows 10 PC. It also works with my Synology NAS home cloud server using Surveillance Station software providing tons of capacity for file storage. I was able to set the camera to alert on motion easily. At first, I was getting some motion activated recordings due to wind in the trees and squirrels, but it was simple to set the motion detection to ignore some areas of the frame and minimize false alarms. There are tons of features included in the software that I’m still trying out.

    Picture quality: This camera has incredible picture quality for such a low price point. I can zoom in on people walking and driving by without losing much quality at all. My Arlo Pro 2 cameras are only 2MP so this 5MP camera really blows them away with the increased the range, clarity and definition. I usually have some ambient light from the streetlights and the neighbors, but the night vision illuminator lights up dark areas in front of my home for about 100 feet. My spouse was really impressed with how clear the picture is.
    Audio: The microphone is incredible. I have audio triggered recordings turned off because there is highway noise behind me. Even with the highway noise behind me, the mic can often pick up the voices of people talking as they walk down the street.

    Flexibility: I really love how versatile this inexpensive camera is. I can put up to a 256GB MicroSD card in it to store the recordings or connect it to my Windows 10 PC, or even to my Synology NAS personal cloud server. I can access the camera through the web, through the Amcrest app on my phone, through Blue Iris or my Synology Surveillance Station software. I’m also not locked into any proprietary camera system because it is compatible with multiple platforms or no platform at all. All you need is the camera, a way to connect it to your network, and then you can use the app.

    Overall: I am thrilled with this purchase (I am a computer/electronics/gadget/smart home enthusiast). This camera is absolutely phenomenal especially considering this price point. I’m already considering where I can place and connect additional cameras. The next time there is a thief in the neighborhood, I’ll be able to pull up a clear image of the people/vehicle when it drives by or be alerted if someone comes near my home. I highly recommend this camera.
