Your browser does not support HTML5 video. I wanted an inexpensive camera to monitor my well room, solely for peace of mind. I decided to give this product a try, because the price was right, and on paper at least, it had what I was looking for. The verdict? I'm blown away by how much value is packed into this device and its cloud service offering.After testing this for a few days, these are my final thoughts:PROS:Decent 1080p HD qualityPan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ)2-way AudioEcho Show InteroperabilityMicroSD-based local storage30-day free trial of cloud storageExcellent InstructionsINCREDIBLY LOW PRICECONS:Camera hesitated on pan, about once per second, for maybe a half second. (Not a big deal, but it would be nice if it were smoother. Realistically though, I pan to where I want it, and leave it there for a long while, so after the first time testing it, it really didn't matter to me at all. I'm just mentioning it to be complete.)SUMMARY:GREAT PRODUCT for the price. Highly recommended.
This is a great little camera, especially for the price.Pros:1. Very easy to set up (took me about two minutes and I didn't even have to read the instructions once I got the app - it talks you through the steps).2. Picture quality is good and you can easily switch the camera (via the app) between SD and HD quality photos if you need network speed over quality or vice versa.3. The motion sensing is very sensitive and reliable (the sensitivity is adjustable).4. The night vision is great. It has a good range and quality.5. You can remotely control the camera which is VERY handy.6. I was away from home and my home power went out briefly, disrupting my network. This was one of only two cameras to get themselves back online and operational without my intervention. That's important!7. The cloud storage is neato, but I definitely like that you can still benefit from this camera without having to subscribe to the monthly cloud service if you don't want to. It will give you a free rolling two-day cloud storage, which is very nice; but I do enjoy having the longer storage of the cloud subscription.Cons:1. Doesn't pick up my extended wifi network unless I reconfigure its network settings, which is easy to do, but it's the only camera I have that doesn't automatically connect to another router with the same SSID and password as the router it was originally configured for.2. The iPhone app UI is a little clunky at times, but it's by far not the worst I've seen, and this company is receptive to feedback so I plan on letting them know my opinion on how they can improve their app.
Gave this camera to my dad. Here is his review:"Just got this new Q5 IPCam to add to my other Wansview IPCameras. First thing I noticed was the ease of setup.A couple of items to note:- Setup and operation are ONLY with WiFi. Plugged in LAN is not an option.- Your phone and Q5 will have to be in same 2.4GHz connection frequency. Q5 will only connect to 2.4GHz and your phone may be on a 5GHz spectrum, not gonna work. If your home WiFi shows two separate SSID’s for each frequency then it should be easy enough for you. I’ve setup my WiFi router to use one SSID only for both frequencies, I had to go into my router setup and temporarily disable the 5GHz radio to force all devices I have to the lower frequency. I turned the 5GHz radio once the Q5 was completely setup.- Like the fact they’re finally using micro USB connector from DC supply to IPCam and not the old 3.5mm plug in type- The Q5 will not work with the previous Wansview IPCam App but instead you’ll need to download their new Wansview Cloud App which is fine as well.- Image sample looking from my home office window is not that bad. I’m sure I can clean it up some more later.- No DDNS support. Camera will only work using Wansview Cloud App. I use a third party IPCam viewer App to use on all my other IPCameras (Foscam, Amcrest and Wansview), no luck on this one or at least not yet. Hopefully they will upgrade it for future capability.- The new Wansview Cloud App still need some work to refine minor UI issues particularly on the chat section.- I’m not a big fan of IPCam paid cloud subscription regardless who the service provider is. I’ll continue using the memory card option on this camera. I could save all recording to my own cloud system if only DDNS is supported on these Q5 IPCamTechnical support either email or chat using the chat option on the App (even on Wechat!) was amazing. These guys are extremely helpful, particularly Simona!Will definitely order more again from them if only they can help on the DDNS option. Otherwise their customer support team’s ability is what pushed them to 5 stars."
Bought one of these cameras several months ago and decided to get another based on the performance of the one I had. Both are now working well for me. Night vision shows good images and day time images are crisp and clear. Picking up sounds and using this for two-way communication is exceptional. This camera picked up voices when I replayed the saved Video that I could not distinguish when I originally heard them. Very surprising but that demonstrates how well the microphone and speakers work. Excellent purchase and a really good price.
I have plenty of IP cameras in my house. They are a combination of DLink, Wansview, Tenvis etc. I have to say my most durable ones are from Wansview. I've had some for as long as 2010! They simply give you the best bang for your buck. I hate to say it but the reason ALL of these IP cameras have a low rating is because of one thing. User error. I admit, I have an IT background and installing these are really easy for me. The new cloud feature couldn't be more easier to install. Even my mom could do it, (sorry mom LOL). Just download the app, make an account, show the QR code that shows up on your app to the camera. Super easy.This new Q5 is my favorite along with my other Wansview cam (top photo). It is very compact (see bottom right photo). It also has a microUSB port for power (left pic). I hope this review has helped you.
My review is based on the experience of using several IP cameras from different vendors over the past 4 years.Overall, the Wansview Q5 Cloud Camera performs very well and the initial setup / install is super easy and quick. With some of my other cameras, I sometimes spent hours (even days) in setting them up. I like the Q5 new form-factor which is nicer and much smaller than the previous Q3 camera. It feels well-built and I expect it to last for many years. The phone software can use some bells and whistles available from other competing IP cameras. That said, it is very intuitive and easy-to-use. In summary, I would recommend this camera because of its well-built hardware, functionalities, and price. Below are some more details:Pros:+ Setting up the first time is quick (5 min for both software and hardware) with their easy-to-follow instructions.+ Camera hardware is well-built, good-looking, and small in size which I like.+ The wide-angle lens is the best I’ve seen in terms of clarity and coverage.+ Crisp & clear images and videos - day and night (see images attached).+ Excellent audio & mic (considering the small-size factor), definitely better than that on their Q3 and K3 cameras, and other cameras I’ve owned.+ The Wansview cloud android phone app is easy to set up, easy to use and to configure.+ Upon detecting motions, the camera sends me alerts on my phone, and 10-sec video clips in the mobile app. This a new feature. Nicely done Wansview!Cons:- No audio-detection alert capability (only motion-detection).- Viewing saved images, they don’t auto-rotate along with the phone’s rotating to a horizontal orientation (from a vertical orientation)- It would be nice if the phone app’s white background can be manually set to a darker theme like black.- It would be nice if the multi-camera screen can be set to load as default upon logging in. Currently it requires an extra click.
