TRENDnet Outdoor 3 MP PoE Dome Network Surveillance Camera with Night Vision, TV-IP311PI

The TRENDnet TV-IP311PI network camera is a nice solution if you want an outdoor camera that supports Power Over Ethernet (POE). To get started with this camera on Sensr.net, just plug it into a POE router and it will grab an IP address via DHCP. To find the IP address, you can use the included software or just look at the attached devices on your router’s admin page. Look for the MAC address of the camera in the list and you’ll be good to go. In my case the camera was using 10.1.1.113.

I’ll also show you how to push images to Sensr.net so you can take advantage of all of our cool features, like SMS and email alerts, 30 days archiving, no firewall config, clip sharing, embedable live streams, guest access, etc.

The Linksys Wireless-N IP Cam is definitely in the more affordable range of IP cameras. It comes from a very reputable name, Linksys has been making electronics, since before I was born, and has plenty of great features not the least of which is FTP compatibility. It is important to note, however, that it does not support scheduled FTP uploads, only motion detection uploads. So you will not be able to get a “live view” on Sensr.net. This is pretty disappointing but that doesn’t mean that if you have this camera all is lost. Be warned that the reviews on amazon are a little harsh (it only got three stars over all), but, a lot of those reviews revolve around how difficult it is to set up so that won’t be a problem for you if you read and follow this tutorial!
