IP Camera Installation Tool Shootout - Avigilon, Axis, Ideal, Hanwha, Triplett, Veracity

By: IPVM Team, Published on Oct 23, 2018

Setting up IP cameras has historically been challenging, with techs often precariously using a laptop on a ladder or lift. Some options for install tools were available but limited in speed, screen size, and usability (e.g., see previous IPVM test of the IPC-8600 and test of Tatung TOM-0431IP).

Now, in 2018, manufacturers have released multiple options aiming to improve installation for users, including faster large touchscreen models, purpose-built handheld displays, and wireless adapters coupled with mobile apps.

To see how each of these options stacks up, we bought and tested six different IP camera installation tools and adapters:

They included specifically the:

Our testing covered:

  • How easy they were to use, including use of hands while installing
  • How well they discovered cameras
  • Breadth of camera configuration functionality
  • Whether they supported 3rd party camera apps
  • Did the unit provide PoE to power the camera
  • What additional functions were included (cable testing, voltmeter, etc.)
  • Pricing and availability

Inside the report, we declare a winner and contrast the capabilities of the units.
