Compro TN900RW Review

Closer Look

TN900RW is quite a sizeable IP camera, measuring 105 x 128.6 x 125.5 mm. Those expecting this camera to be a discreet solution should look elsewhere, TN900RW is bulky and although constructed of plastic the unit feels rather sturdy. This size is needful to accommodate the adept PTZ motor.

TN900RW uses a 1/3" progressive scan CMOS sensor which outputs a maximum of 1280x720 and 30FPS. We’re pleased to see that Compro has included HD support with this version and have also packed in 12x Infrared LEDs for night vision functionality of up to 10m.

Our lens also delivers 10x digital zoom and a shutter speed of 1/5 ~ 1/16000 sec.

Having PTZ functionality, TN900RW can pan 340° in a horizontal motion whilst 100° in a vertical movement to give plenty of coverage. Another feature which comes in handy with TN900RW is the two-way audio option, the unit has a speaker system and microphone fitted for this purpose. Compression in this particular regard uses G.711 PCM 64Kbit/sec.

At the back of TN900RW there are an assortment of different ports and options. The following are available:

• LAN port (10/100 Base-T)
• MIC input / Audio output
• USB port for use with USB 802.11n wireless adapter
• WPS and Reset button
• Micro SDHC slot
• DC 5V port

In order to use the camera wirelessly the adapter needs to be plugged into the slot at the back. When plugged in, the wireless adapter flashes erratically – unfortunately this cannot be disabled.

Finally, the underside of TN900RW features a QR code which after a quick scan performs an install and a spec label detailing the serial number and other critical information.

There are four incisions for use with the metal plate which Compro include – this is for mounting purposes and allows the camera to be attached to walls or ceilings.
