Testing IP Camera Test Monitor (Tatung)

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on May 06, 2015

Integrators frequently cited insufficient installation tools as one of the key problems of IP camera installation. While many use a laptop, the size and necessary accessory devices to do this make it cumbersome.

It is a neat concept but how easily or hard is it to use?

We tested it to find out.
