Home security systems are common these days, especially to combat the rise of break-in of premises. The QRT-301 from KGuard comes as an affordable solution that’s available at most computer stores.
The KGuard QRT-301’s packaging it simple, within it is the QRT-301 camera, power adapter, LAN cable, antenna, manual, drivers and even the mounting platform in case you prefer to have it mounted on a wall or ceiling.
The KGuard QRT-301 that’s capable of 720P recording, motion sensing, alarm notification, Wi-Fi and LAN connectivity and much more. Details as shown in the specs from the official product page.
Here’s the camera itself, the camera is lightweight and the chassis is of glossy plastic.
At the back are the various connection ports for the camera’s functionality.
By running the software provided you will able to search the network for the camera. Once the IP is found you need to configure the IP camera before being able to proceed as the camera has to be within the same subnet.
I didn’t face any problem at that stage but the browser interface refuses to show the video stream regardless how I installed the plugin. 🙁
The IP camera still works as I am able to view the screenshot.
The web access is mainly for configuring of the device where many settings are available like alarm settings, motion sensor settings, connectivity settings and so on.
Disappointed at the browser-based experience I head on to the mobile device app instead. The App is a little troublesome that it does not come with a QR code reader by installing the app you’ll have to install another app to work with it.
It’s all good once installation is complete, just scan the QR code at the side of the camera and connection is complete. No username or password is required, of course that’s quite scary in the sense that anyone who can get a hold of that QR code will be able to view through the IP camera.
