   Doing everything in our power to protect/safeguard our loved ones should be a priority for all of us and although there aren't really any guarantees in life we must always try our best (better to do something than do nothing). Unfortunately some of us come to realize this when it's too late and since i happen to be one such person this is probably the main reason as to why i always like testing things that can help with that such as surveillance devices including IP cameras and complete security systems. One such device is the NC450 HD Pan/Tilt Wi-Fi Camera (2.0 version) by our friends over at TP-Link which I’ve been using both at the lab and at home for the past 12 days.


   Founded in 1996, TP-Link is a global provider of reliable networking devices and accessories, involved in all aspects of everyday life. The company is consistently ranked by analyst firm IDC as the No. 1 provider of WLAN and broadband CPE devices, according to latest published IDC Worldwide Quarterly WLAN Tracker Report, Q32016 Final Release, supplying distribution to more than 120 countries and serving hundreds of millions of people worldwide. With a proven heritage of stability, performance and value, TP-Link has curated a portfolio of products that meet the networking needs of all individuals. Now, as the connected lifestyle continues to evolve, the company is expanding today to exceed the demands of tomorrow.


   The NC450 HD Pan/Tilt Wi-Fi Camera wears a 1 Megapixel CMOS sensor (F:2.0 / f:3.6mm) which can record HD video (1280x720 pixels / H.264 video compression) at up to 30fps and with a field of view of 75 degrees. However its strongest "pitch" is not really it's video quality but rather its extra features so aside the Pan (360 degrees) / Tilt (150 degrees) functionality thanks to its motorized dome, its 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity, PoE (Power Over Ethernet) support, Night vision mode via 850nm IR LEDs (illuminate up to 26 feet) and its microSD card slot which can be used to store both videos and pictures the NC450 also offers two-way audio so not only can you hear what's happening on the other end via a built-in microphone but you can also speak through an intergrated speaker. If these weren't enough however TP-Link has also made it possible for the NC450 to send you both motion and sound alerts two features we don't really see with similar models. The NC450 also supports remote cloud access via TP-Link's tpCamera Android and iOS app.
