The security of our homes is of vital importance to feel comfortable and avoid having another worry in our busy day to day. However, although on many occasions we do not consider that we need any security system, since our home does not meet the most common characteristics of homes prone to robbery, we may need this type of technology in the future. The TP-LINK brand knows this and that is why today we bring you the TP-LINK NC450 .

Either because you need a security camera to monitor your home, or because you have children or pets and you need to be aware of what is happening in your home, this practical security system with Wi-Fi will offer you the guarantees you need.

What can we expect from the TP-LINK NC450?

The TP-LINK NC450 is a surveillance camera that has a compact and very handy design . It has dimensions of 10.9 x 10.6 x 14.4 cm and is white .
Among some of its main features, we can see that it takes images in HD 720p (high definition). This means that its HD resolution offers us sharper and clearer images, which will make it easier for us to see fully what is happening at all times.

Regarding the ability to pan or tilt , this camera can view up to 360 degrees horizontally and 150 degrees vertically , which translates into a wide viewing range to avoid, as far as possible, the dreaded “blind spots”.
Its Night Vision function allows us to monitor what is happening in the dark with a range of up to 8 meters away . In addition, to this we must add that you should not worry about connecting this mode, since the camera itself detects the change in lighting and, automatically, activates this function to achieve optimal recording and image capture. To all this, we must add thatit detects both movement and sound , so you will receive alerts and notifications by email when either of the two is detected, along with an image of the area in which they have been captured.
In addition, it has 2 audio channels that serve to be able to communicate easily with your family or your workers in just an instant.

To conclude with all its features, we have to tell you that you will be able to store the videos and images on an SD Card thanks to the integrated slot, although, yes, we must warn you that the card will have to be purchased separately, since it is not included. And we do not forget to mention the tpCamera App , an application of the brand that you can install on your Android and Iphone devices to access all the transmissions from anywhere and whenever you want. You just have to install it, configure it and voila, you will have a new window to access your surveillance camera .

Opinions from the TP-LINK NC450

The TP-LINK NC450 surveillance camera is easy to install and operate . It meets the specifications described by the product and the image quality in its night mode is more than acceptable. In addition, other advantages it has is that it can be redirected in the direction you want at any time. It captures sound quite well , since, even installed on the ceiling, it is capable of recognizing sounds and transmitting them to your smartphone.
In addition and referring to the above, a positive point of this camera is the ease with which you can consult the images and videos captured, since it sends notifications to your email and, if you have the app installed, they will appear on your own device. To this must be added the possibility of communicating from your smartphone or tablet with those present in the room where the camera is located.

Its value for money is very good , although we must point out two negative points and that is that, firstly, the night image may not be very sharp for the most demanding and, secondly, it has a sending limitation of 100 emails per month , with which, it is not advisable to use video captures or images because we want to and we will have to limit ourselves to fulfilling its function as a surveillance camera.
