Samsung HD Pro WiFi IP Camera (SNH-P6410BN)

Whether you want to check in on what your pet is doing, see if the kids are safe or just want the reassurance of knowing that your home is secure, the Samsung SmartCam HD Pro is the perfect way to keep an eye on what matters most. You can view your SmartCam HD Pro from your mobile device anytime from anywhere in the world, giving you peace of mind. Designed for optimum performance with Full HD 1080p video quality, simple set-up and an intuitive experience, the SmartCam HD Pro provides the high caliber video experience you would expect from Samsung. The SmartCam HD Pro can be easily customized to instantly alert you to both motion and audio events so you won’t miss a thing! The SmartCam HD Pro delivers real-time notification of activity through your iPhone, iPad, or Android smartphone or tablet. It also has a built-in slot for a microSDXC memory card which allows for video storage for later review. Once you’ve downloaded the Samsung SmartCam app and have set up your SmartCam HD Pro, there are no extra costs or monthly fees for viewing or storage. The SmartCam HD Pro WiFi IP camera introduces many advanced features such as Wide Dynamic Range, Samsung Light Enhancer, Advanced Motion & Audio Detection, and Motion Zone Select. Each camera is equipped with a built-in microphone and speaker for crisp, clear Two-Way Talk ─ one more way Samsung helps you be in two places at once!

Simple WiFi Setup

Setting up the device is simple and requires no use of software or CDs. Simply download the free Samsung SmartCam app for Android or iOS, available on the App Store and Google Play, to your mobile device. The intuitive setup wizard helps you to begin viewing your camera in a matter of minutes.

Advanced Motion & Audio Detection

If your pet enters an “off-limits” room, the kids come home from school, or a window is shattered, you’ll be immediately notified. False alarms due to slight changes in lighting or minor movements such as a houseplant gently ruffled by an air vent, are now a thing of the past! The SmartCam HD Pro’s Advanced Motion & Audio Detection recognizes that things like rolling cloud coverage, falling leaves and swaying branches are not key events. You will only be notified, through instant push notifications to your mobile device, of true motion events such as someone entering the room. And in low light conditions, audio detection has you doubly covered listening for loud incidents you should know about.

1080p Full HD Video

The SmartCam HD Pro WiFi IP camera provides up to 1080p Full HD streaming video to your mobile device, delivering better image quality than 720p resolution. Capture every detail of your kids playing video games, your cat poised at the window awaiting your return, or even the cash register inside your store. The large 1/2.8-inch CMOS sensor allows maximum light through the lens ─ yielding vivid colors, brighter video and stunning detail.

Two-Way Talk

Go ahead: remind your child to do her homework or tell your dog to get off the couch. The Samsung Enhanced Two-Way Talk feature lets you not only hear what’s going on around the camera, but also allows you to talk back through your smartphone, no matter where you are. A built-in audio minijack that accommodates external speakers (not included) amplify and enhance the sound quality.

Samsung Light Enhancer (SLE) & Wide Dynamic Range (WDR)

SLE: The Samsung Light Enhancer enriches available light in dark areas to give you superior image detail in even the most challenging low light conditions. If you wake up with the nagging feeling that you left the burner on under the kettle, a quick check from your smartphone will put the issue ─ and you ─ to bed. WDR: Bright light streaming through windows poses no problem for the SmartCam HD Pro. The WDR technology enhances details in backlit conditions to give you a clear view of the outside, while eliminating murky silhouettes in the foreground. So while it may be high noon outside, you’ll clearly see the sheriff’s star as your little cowgirl has a showdown in front of the playroom window.

True Day & Night and Ultra-Wide Angle

The SmartCam HD Pro features an advanced IR Cut Filter for accurate, vibrant colors. Even in darkness, the camera provides clear, nighttime video up to 16 feet. No more need for barefoot late-night safety checks! While other cameras have constricted angles that limit your view, Samsung’s 128° Ultra-Wide Angle lens gives you a wider view to maximize your recording coverage without compromising quality. Want to know what the kids are doing with the crayon over there in the corner? The SmartCam HD Pro puts you right there!

Motion Zone Select

Motion Zone Select further fine-tunes what you want the camera to pay attention to. If you want to keep your eye on the window, but the dog runs back and forth beneath it, Simply draw a box around it on your screen and the camera will alert you when someone is approaching outside. You can select up to three motion zones in the camera’s field of view.

Local Video Storage

Capture those important events right onto your SmartCam HD Pro. Local video storage is possible through a micro SD card slot with the ability to record directly onto a microSDXC memory card* with up to 64GB capacity. Set your camera for continuous recording, record at scheduled times, or, to minimize viewing time and storage space, record only when motion and sound events are detected. You can even view the recorded video right from your mobile device from anywhere in the world. *SD card not included.

Q:Will it allow to record on network attached storage disk NAS?

A:

Yes! Though not well documented by Samsung. Like all Samsung SmartCam models, in your Network Video Record (NVR) camera setup, use RTSP H.264 to receive video streams. BTW, you don’t need a physical NVR machine. You can download Samsung’s own NET-i ware NVR software at http://www.samsungsecurity.com/product/product_list.asp?cid=45&clvl=1. To set up in Samsung NET-i NVR software or other software or physical NVRs, follow these steps. — Select Add Camera > Register Device (Manual – Do not auto detect) > Select Vendor Name = Samsung, Model Name = Samsung Network Camera / Encoder,…

BTW, you don’t need a physical NVR machine. You can download Samsung’s own NET-i ware NVR software at http://www.samsungsecurity.com/product/product_list.asp?cid=45&clvl=1.

To set up in Samsung NET-i NVR software or other software or physical NVRs, follow these steps.

Select Add Camera > Register Device (Manual – Do not auto detect) > Select Vendor Name = Samsung, Model Name = Samsung Network Camera / Encoder, Address Type = IP Address (To reduce unnecessary traffic and network security risk, use your internal network address, not your external ip address.), HTTP Port = 80, Device Port (Or, Media/Video/RTSP Port) = 554, Login ID = admin, Login Password = (Your Camera Private Key when you registered your camera at samsungsmartcam.com, i.e., when you first set up the camera).

Note: When setting up the camera, the vendor name and camera model info are informational only. Only RTSP Protocol and ports, login credentials are critical.

Here is an example of setting up Samsung SmartCam with Blue Iris Software NVR.

Q:Is it possible to disable the IR Led’s?

A:

Yes, “Night Vision” can be turned off from the SmartCam website. Login and select the camera, bottom left side click on Settings icon, towards the right side Night Vision can be turned On/Off.

Q:Is there an Iphone / Ipad App for this system?

A:

According to this link, you can. I’m glad to see that, but am a little surprised since both companies keep taking each other to court. Anyway, here’s the link…

https://itunes.apple.com/tc/app/samsung-smartcam/id519014699?mt=8

Q:While the product info states it will work with a Chrome browser, will it work with a 4G equipped Chromebook – versus tablet – as a remote monitor?

A:

The samsung smartcam website webviewer plugin isn’t chromebook/chrome compatible – can anyone help?

Q:I want to use 2 cams for ‘live’ view out my front and rear windows. How do I dsiplay both cams simultaneously on one monitor?

A:

You can download Samsung’s own free Samsung NET-i Viewer Software to manage and view up to 64 channels. NET-i allows display side by side. It can be downloaded from samsungsecurity.com.

Q:Can I view live or even SD card recorded video directly from the local IP if my WAN is down if I am on the same LAN?

A:

At the moment Samsung has not provided to see the recorded video from local network. SD card can be taken out and viewed directly from the computer if needed to, but you will need to know the time and date you are looking for.

Q:Can this be used outdoors a a front door monitoring camera?

A:

The shell is plastic and the camera is very sensitive to light. I had it monitoring my front porch and in the afternoon the sun hits the lens and created rings and rainbows on the video. I am now using a dropcam hd at the front door and it seems a little less sensitive. I have it mounted against a window inside looking out. The bad thing is recording on the dropcam must be subscribed to for 9.95 a month and the smartcam uses an internal sd card. I’m trying to find a location facing north so I can put the samsung to good use. I would not mount it outside nor would I mount the dropcam outside…

Q:What is the duration of the video that’s recorded on the MicroSD card by motion or sound events? Is that something the user can set?

A:

For motion detection, most clips I’ve viewed range between 30 to 90 seconds. I turned off audio detection, so can’t comment on that.

I haven’t seen a feature offered by Samsung where user controls length of motion recording, it stops on its own. In my few months experience, I’m only aware of users having one of two choices: record motion detection clips only or 24/7 continuous video.

Q:If the video storage on the SD card only holds up to 24 hours, does it automatically write over the stored video to the most recent 24 hours?

A:

The time depends on the size of your card and the settings (constant recording vs event recording). Once the card is full, the camera will overwrite the oldest video if you setup your camera camera to do so.

Q:Is it true that playing recorded event is only at 720p? 1080p is for live viewing only?

A:

Yes. The camera records in 720p @15fps. 1080p live video streaming is only available from a computer Web browser.

Q:If using this to hear a baby cry does the sound still work once your phone or iPad goes to sleep?

A:

Yes, it works just like when getting notifications like sms etc… it will make a sound.

Q:Can feed be viewed live on a Samsung Smart TV via same network (ie, tv upstairs, camera downstairs) in addition to the Smartphone?

A:

Once its Smart TV Yes you can sync the camera and watch live events.

Q:does it tilt and pan? How long is the power cord to the camera?

A:

The camera is fixed camera, but has an ultra wide angle so you can view the whole room. Since this is HD camera, you can use pinch-zoom from your mobile device and use your finger to move around the screen. The power adapter is abut 8ft long.

Q:Can you monitor the video directly over LAN, using a desktop video player, instead of using a browser and going through Samsung servers?

A:

yes you can use direct IP to the camera.

Q:Does the camera function as an IP camera independent of the Samsung Server?

A:

Yes. You can log into it with a browser by going directly to its IP address.

Q:what is the maximum micro sd card that I can put in the cam ?

A:

Dear Customer,

64GB is the max that it can hold. According to the the manual available online, the maximum capacity microSD card that the camera can handle is a 64GB card.

Regards,
Soltech Security

Q:how long is the plug in cord to the camera

A:

The AC cord is approximately 8 feet long.

Q:Can this camera be wall-mounted?

A:

Yes. The swivel plate adapter has holes in it for mounting in the wall.

Q:Can this save motion footage automatically by gmail or cloud?

A:

Yes, you can save footage on micro sd card for up to 24 hours or as a motiion alert that will go to your gmail account.

Q:Is this a good choice to use as a video baby monitor?

A:

To follow up on my “yes” response, it should be a very good baby monitor. Daytime video quality is good to great depending on resolution selected. Night vision is above average for a security camera. But compared to a few baby monitors I’ve seen on YouTube and from friends/relatives, it’s definitely better than those. It has a speaker and mic, but don’t expect to have long conversations through it, delays in audio. But it should be fine to speak into if you want your baby or child to hear your voice and comfort them at night. For more detailed info, see my review and other reviews…

Q:I cannot figure out how to save the motion detection pictures directly to the SD card, instead of using Picassa. Is there a way to do this? Thanks,

A:

Dear Customer,

The motion detection pictures are connected to Picasa in order to preserve as much space on the microSD card for video recording purposes. There actually is no way as of yet to store the pictures on to the microSD.

Best Regards,
Soltech Security

Q:Why does it log out after a few minutes of streaming video? Is there a way to avoid this, so I don’t have to log in or click every few minutes?

A:

Dear Customer,

This should definitely not be the case when viewing the video stream. We’d like to offer you more help with the product. Please contact our point person for this product at daniel@soltechsecurity.com for further assistance.

Q:Can you turn this camera off from your Smart phone?

A:

I’ve had the camera for about one week and have also read the guides. I don’t think you can turn the camera’s power off from your mobile device.

Q:can you run power over Ethernet on this camera??

A:

No, it has to have it’s own low voltage cable plugged into a 110vac outlet. The ethernet cable is just to set it up.

Q:how can i access videos on the SD card remotely or copy them on network. i physically won’t be there for 1-2 years.

A:

Dear Customer,

The videos themselves cannot be downloaded via the website at this time and point. You can remotely view the recorded footage from the website and app, but you will not be able to download the actual video footage from a remote location with the software provided.

Best Regards,
Soltech Security

Q:No email alerts. Google account setup, picasa motion events snapshots uploaded, everything checked and verified, yet no email alerts. Ideas?

A:

To setup the email alert, you have to use the web browser. Login to samsungsmartcam from your computer browser. Go to the camera setup page –> Alarm & Notification. Make sure the motion sensitivity is check and the Google box is checked. Under Google section, make sure to have your gmail ID and password entered since the camera uses the gmail SMTP server. Make sure the send alarm box is checked and enter the email address below and click on add. Once the email address is displayed, you have to click on save button. Hope this helps.

Q:Will this camera work with the Synology Surveillance Station?

A:

It seems like yes, although Synology Surveillance Station documentation does not explicitly list it. According to Synology WIKI, “http–forum.synology.com/wiki/index.php/How_to_use_Surveillance_Station”, you can set up a generic IP camera. For this Samsung camera and most Samsung IP cameras, try following settings — HTTP Port = 80, Device Port (Or, Media/Video/RTSP Port) = 554, Login ID = admin, Login Password = (Your Camera Private Key when you registered your camera with at samsungsmartcam dot com, i.e., when you first set up the camera), Stream URL or Source Path =…

Q:Can this be used outdoors?

A:

No. This unit is indoor only but Sandung does make a unit for outdoor use. SmartCam HD Outdoor.

Q:Does this camera really “ding” every time the wireless connection is interrupted? Is there any way to turn that off?

A:

The camera itself doesn’t ding or make any noise whatsoever. The only time it will make noise is when connected to speakers and prompted to make noise either by 2-way sound or the lullaby options.

Q:I know Samsung makes a smart cam outdoor but how suitable would this actual hd pro smart can fair outside say— underneath a carport

A:

Real bad idea i reckon. I don’t think it has any ip rating at all. Watch out for putting electronics on a window sill between a window and closed curtain as well – the heating and cooling and subsequent condensation destroys electronics fast

check-price-on-amazon

Q:Is anyone else having problems trying to set this up to send emails? I can’t add my gmail at all. Won’t save settings.

A:

You need to change the security on your gmail. The gmail is blocking the app from logging in.

Q:I heard once my internet goes down and comes back later, I’ll have to reset the camera online again, why can’t it reconnect automatically?

A:

If your internet connection is interrupted the camera will go offline and a blue light will be displayed (when it is online it displays a green light).
Once the internet connection is reestablished, the camera will automatically go online (a green light instead of the blue light)
Therefore, no manual reset is required

Q:Does camera have a weather proof casing like the drop cam for out door use

A:

No.

Q:There are so many complaints about the camera disconecting from wifi, which I intend to use. Has this problem been resolved yet? no use if it has not.

A:

Unfortunately, the problem persists. There have been several firmware upgrades since I purchased the SmartCam HD Pro, but it still drops the connection on a regular basis. In fact, I purchased a WiFi extender to ensure the signal was strong enough in our apartment. The signal is strong, but it still periodically drops. I would not recommend that anyone use this as their sole source for baby monitoring.

Q:can you view the camera on my android based phone and my iphone at the same time?

A:

I think you can as well. I tried to view my Samsung SmartCam camera using my macbook pro laptop and android smartphone at the same time and it does not log me off on any account. You can also put password on your camera if you want it to be private. Just make sure you have fast internet connection. Any more questions feel free to ask me here.

Q:How do I view saved motion clips on my pc? I can see them on my android phone.

A:

Log in to your Samsung SmartCam account, and click on “Playback”. Then select your motion recording criteria, and move the slider to a green area, and click the play arrow.

Q:There’s a piece of magnet clasp in the box, anyone knows what’s that for?

A:

This is a ferrite core which prevents frequency interference to the camera.
Found it impossible to know how to attach it from the written instructions.
Must watch the video, “What’s in the Box,” on the support site:

http://www.samsungsv.com/Support/VideoClip

Q:Does this camera work outdoors? I have a veranda and I can install it under the roof, on the ceiling very easily.

A:

It could, but you’d want to really keep it dry as it’s meant to be indoors only. Even if under the roof to protect from rain/snow, I’m concerned that moisture could still get inside the security camera housing and cause it to malfunction. I would suggest keeping it enclosed in a container with a see-through opening, something like in the link below…

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Brand-New-CCTV-Camera-Outdoor-Housing-Enclosure-PACH-COMPANY-Model-APIWCE-/271545251235?

Q:Does the two-way talk feature work via a pc?

A:

Dear Customer,

You can only use the two-way talk feature via smartphone. It is not available on the PC.

Regards,
Soltech Security

Q:If it is a wireless camera why does it need to be plugged to the modemn

A:

it doesn’t have to be plugged in. It’s just an option you have when you are setting it up. You can set it up wirelessly with your mobiile phone once you’ve downloaded the samsung application too.

check-price-on-amazon

Q:How flexible is the time scheduled recording? Can you record from 3:00pm – 4:00pm? How small can the time recording interval be?

A:

you can schedule it anytime you want even for a min, but make sure you get a 64gb sd card

Q:If I mount this camera up high in a 10′ x 12′ room, will I be able to see most of the room?

A:

Are you talking about during night vision mode. Yes it would but it also depends where and how you exactly install it. You might have to do some drilling if you want to place it on the ceiling or side wall. Note that you can invert the view horizontally or vertically. Anymore question let me know. I wish I get paid answering questions.lol

Q:how to set camera up and download app

A:

They make it easy. Setup could be tricky–you have to teach the camera how to connect to your wi-fi network and the app needs to find the camera from anywhere in the world. You download the app to your phone like any other app. You can create a Samsung account using the app or at samsungsmartcam.com. The app has a setup wizard that finds the camera and connects it to the wifi your phone or tablet is using. I had no problem setting up in about ten minutes.

Q:I’ve attempted using a wireless baby video monitor before and it caused major interference with our wireless router. Would I have the same prob?

A:

Baby cam’s typically are wifi unaware, meaning they will cause interference. They have no way to work cooperatively with Wifi on the same channel. Samsung is Wifi itself, so it is wifi aware, and will not cause interference, outside of the normal bandwidth consumption of course.

Q:I have inserted a SanDisk SD XC 64GB card in the camera but the camera is not detecting the sd card. Can someone please help troubleshoot this issue?

A:

Ensure that the card is formatted FAT32.

Q:Does the IR LED emit light, or invisible to the naked eye?

A:

Shows a dim red circle of lights

Q:Can you upload motion detected event VIDEO to google drive? No consistent answer, or different models seem to support and others not?

A:

Yes, you can link your gmail account

Q:Has anyone used this as a baby monitor? If so what do you think?

A:

work excellent you can set it for motion and voice alert and it sends a message to your phone

Q:It won’t stay on the HD resolution setting – it switches to HD when I select, but the next time I log in, it has switched back to low res

A:

This is quite an odd occurrence as you the quality setting should stay as is even after you log out and log back in. I’d recommend trying a different browser and see if that helps.
We’ve tested it here in the office and in most cases, we’ve seen that the quality setting consistently stays on the previously set setting.

Best Regards,
Soltech Security

Q:One of the other camera makers software/website show’s you a timeline displaying where there was activity or not in the history. Can this do that?

A:

When the cam is set to record only when motion or sound are detected, the segments of time where a recording exists are shown in the timeline with green highlighting. You can then drag the playhead to one of these highlighted segments of the timeline and play back the segment. Cueing exactly to a certain time point is not possible, but you can get within ten or twenty seconds of where you want to start watching.

check-price-on-amazon

Q:Are there supposed to be screenshots in the Event Alarm section on the website? I see events listed, but no images shown, just “Smartcam” boxes

A:

In order for the snapshots to be there, you’ll have to activate your picasa account in the camera settings. Since video/image storage isn’t done on the Samsung server, the images actually are pulled from Picasa and shown on those boxes when you have it set.

Q:Do you have to take out the sim card to see the record file? or it can be view on internet over your phone or computer?

A:

You can view both live and recorded file over phone or computer, no need to take card out.

Q:Has anyone had problems connecting to WIFI??

A:

I had problems connecting to any Apple router. Has to do with the type of security that each device uses. Once I switched to a non-Apple router, I had no trouble.

Q:wifi connection issues

A:

I don’t have any wifi issues with this camera.

Q:Got a question. When the power goes out, and comes back on, does this system reset itself ? Without any manual intervention ?

A:

Yes

Q:Can you rotate the samsung camera and change the viewing angle remotely using an iPhone?

A:

Not phone…I meant to say the camera does not rotate.

Q:Does the camera support uploading image or video to FTP server?

A:

It is difficult to set up with that aspect as is it with all other aspects of this camera. I logged in and could not get it going after following instructions, etc., so after an hour, I realized it was the system/camera and not my problem. No longer uploadable to Youtube as advertised, either, as per my review. For the same price of hardware, I returned this and bought DropCam for 199., which is excellent and has server online for a monthly fee. Dropcam is much better in every way.

Q:Can you control more than one camera from the APP?

A:

Yes, the app allows you to associate multiple cameras.

Q:Do you need an adaptor for the micro SD card?

A:

No. Micro sd goes in directly.

Q:Will this camera work with only a WiFi signal & Internet connection? There will be no PC available after setup.

A:

Yes. I set mine up with an iPad using my Wi-Fi system and access the camera using either the iPad or my iPhone. Setup was fairly easy.

check-price-on-amazon

Q:Other than plugging into the electric outlet, does it have an option using lithium battery instead?

A:

Not natively. I don’t know what the power supply switches the voltage down to – probably either 12v or 5.5v. But what you should be able to do is source a separate battery with the correct voltage and then find the correct plug to connect the battery straight into the camera. For my cameras I kept the original power supplys, and connected the cameras to a UPS (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uninterruptible_power_supply)

Q:Do I lose my wireless settings, etc., if power goes out?

A:

No

Q:Does it come with a SD card? I see the same camera from the same company at the same price on Ebay that comes with a 32GB Samsung SD card.

A:

No, it does not. Apparently you can insert one though. You can save images from the camera onto whatever device you’re using though, whether it be your phone or computer.

Q:I am getting this message. “Access has failed. Please try again in a moment (simultaneous connection/network unstable)” Help is appreciated.

A:

First make sure your internet is up and running by simply opening up a browser. If yes, check to see if your indicator light is green on the camera. If the light is another color then unplug the camera for 10 seconds and plug it back in. If after 3 minutes or so it still does not work you may have to hit the reset button on the back and go back through the setup process. None of your save videos will be impacted.

Q:Is there any way to adjust frame rate? I’d like to get 30+ fps to overcome the non-transmission related delay.

A:

Dear customer,

There is no way to actually adjust the frame rate at which the recording or streaming is done. The most that can be adjusted is the network speed (video quality) at which the video is seen from either the phone app or the website.

Q:It seems like it is only uploading still images to google. Is it possible to upload video?

A:

I have not tried to upload video, yes it should be possible even if you removed the memory xard and went straight from it. Or chose your phone as the recording device.

Q:If I upload images to google, can anybody in my google circles view images? It appears that’s the case, but I can’t tell for sure.

A:

Hi Steve. You have control on who will see your images. I have two cameras. One inside and one outside. I love them both. Have a great day. Charlie

Q:can you use more than one camera

A:

yes

Q:does the motion detection get triggered when pointed out a window? (i.e through glass…amarylllo cams do NOT)

A:

Ye . Make sure the WDR feature is enabled in the settings. Also, if the IR LEDs are on at night time, the glare from the window will impact the viewing.
