Author Topic: "Kare" Brand Ip Cam Opinions? N5402JV N5403JV  (Read 8264 times)

Hi Guys

I saw this video on utube for the ~$70 Kare eyeball type IP Cam:

This looks too good for a cheepie ip cam, light years better than my "purplish" Wanscam.

Does the ir-cut filter make *that* much difference?

thx

bob

Hi,

yes that's about what to expect from ir-cut, allthough this camera doesn't say it does have ir-cut.

The price is not that good, about what to expect on ebay.

Why don't you check the demos on the manufacturers websited to compare "quality"?

As I suppose it's US$: every brand that I mentioned in the other thread, even the dericam that has optical 3x zoom. not true for H.264 ones.

I was answering your same question

I recently purchased the N5403JV from amazon, it was about $55 USD as of feb2012.
it appears to be a standard foscam clone/'541' cam, with the exception that really does have a working/mechanical IR cut filter, you can hear the the filter 'click' as it moves in/out of place, and the daylight images are true-color. I looked at a variety of ipcam clone cameras in that price range and this was the only one I found that actually claimed to have the IR cut filter. I actually ordered an easyN cam prior to getting the kare; the easyN was like $5 more and didnt even have the IRcut, so I returned it. I was skeptical about getting the kare, since it seemed like too much of a good deal, but its a great camera, I highly recommend it.

since its a full-blown 541 cam, its definitely&easily hack-able. I'll provide more info/specs in another post.

Please do.  I just picked one up.  Only bug is that the preset PTZ positions don't work even in IE. There is no "set or call" options, just the 9 buttons that don't function.
