Easy to set up
All you need to do is simply download a FREE app and you can access the live feeds on your Android or Apple smartphone or Tablet, iPhone or iPad or even your PC or laptop.
This makes it easy for remote viewing when you are at work, away shopping or even overseas at a conference. You also receive notifications when the firmware is updated, so you always have the best app that is available.
Plays pre-set lullabies
The TrendNet WIFI baby cam comes with 5 preset lullabies, which you can play remotely, so when you receive an alert that your baby is awake you can soothe them with a musical melody.
The two-way communication is a great feature, because you can hear your baby when they are awake and also talk to them at the same time – all from anywhere in the world. You can also chat to your partner or older children, as well the babysitter to make sure that all is well at home.
If you use the TrendNet camera to monitor your children, you can talk to them while they are completing their homework or having their evening meal or even chat with your partner or nanny while they are looking after your baby.
Just imagine that you receive a notification that your baby is awake and crying in the cot – you can play them a lullaby or sing them a tune yourself, while you wait for your partner or babysitter to hear them and come to the nursery.
Temperature sensor for the nursery
You also have a temperature sensor with the TrendNet TV-IP745SIC, which you don’t have with the cheaper TV-IP743SIC model, so you can always be sure that the temperature in the room is suitable for your baby or children.
This is a great feature as it records the ambient temperature in the room and once you have set your limits, will send you a notification alert if the temperature goes outside of these limits.
This might not be useful to every parent, but it is a nice added feature on this nanny cam.
SD card slot and FREE cloud storage
Finally, you have FREE cloud storage with this TrendNet camera, so you can record live video and store it to the cloud, but there is also an SD card slot for local storage.
The SD card is a great feature and one that many nanny cams do not have (you do need to purchase the SD card separately).

Online customer reviews for the TV-IP745SIC are mixed with some customers having no problems at all and others having continual problems with connectivity.
Night Vision is working very well! I can see as far as 15-16 feet away.
It is very easy to set up and install.
I can also use it to watch my older one when she is home alone playing piano.
It’s so cool that I can talk to her on the video camera while I am at work in my office.
Features seem like a great buy but it is plagued with connectivity issues.
Problem is I could not get the camera to connect to my network via the app or the computer. The only way was to use WPS.
There are not a lot of reviews for these TrendNet cameras and those that do exist are really mixed. The TrendNet TV-IP745SIC does have a lot of great features and it is extremely affordable, but there seems to be an ongoing problem with connectivity.
Despite the connectivity problems experienced by many customers, just as many customers have no problems at all and love these nanny cams. So if you want a really cheap nanny cam and you have high speed internet connections, it might be worth giving the TrendNet TV-IP745SIC a shot, particularly with the 3 year warranty.
