CES 2014

CES 2014 logoTRENDnet today announced two 802.11ac wireless IP cameras and a high-gain AC USB adapter.

The TV-IP782IC HD Wireless AC Cloud Camera and TV-IP882IC HD Wireless AC PTZ Cloud Camera both support 720p HD resolution, have IR illumination for night vision and can email motion-detected video clips.

Both also can record to a built-in micro SD card, include two-way audio and can be viewed remotely via TRENDnet's free cloud service.

Aside from minor differences in night vision range (5m for the TV-IP782IC and 7.5m for the TV-IP882IC), the key difference is remote controllable 330° side-to-side pan and 115° tilt in the PTZ model.

An important "feature" is that both cameras operate in the 5 GHz band only. TRENDnet's announcement phrased this as "...this line of cloud cameras, is not compatible with Wireless N networks. The listed cameras require the presence of a Wireless AC network...". A quick check with TRENDnet confirmed that the cameras can indeed work with dual-band N routers, but on the 5 GHz band only.

Both begin shipping in June at MSRPs of $149.99 and $249.99 for the TV-IP782IC and TV-IP882IC, respectively.
