Not too long ago we showed you how you could simply and inexpensively setup a home monitoring network using PoE and IP cameras. So now that you have built a four camera setup, how do you monitor it without the need to have a computer sitting right next to you all the time?
TRENDnet has a very good answer for you and one that does not need to always show off what is going on with the cameras. This is the TRENDnet TV-M7. The TV-M7 is a 7-inch Wireless Camera Monitor that also doubles as a digital photo frame, media player, Clock, Calendar and a host of other features. This means that you can place this out in the open and feel safe in the knowledge that it will not be too obtrusive.
But despite its cover as a photo frame, it is an easy to use device that can monitor up to four IP cameras and display them in a cluster or scan through them one at a time on the screen. The TV-M7 also sports a slot for an SD card in addition to internal memory for your pictures and media. Wireless connectivity is 802.11n and can handle WEP, WPA and WPA2. It looks like an impressive device and a must for a home monitoring system, but what it looks like on paper and reality are often different. Let's see how close they are this time.
