5 stars for Belkin NetCam HD

Monitor your RV

My wife and I live in an RV with 3 cats and a dog. We love it, but we worry about out pets while we are away. We try not to leave them for long periods of time and they do very well in the RV alone, but sometimes we just want to be able to check on them.

So we purchased a Belkin NetCam HD. Here is a description from their site:

"Not only does the Belkin NetCam HD allow you to keep tabs on kids or pets from your smartphone or tablet--it also allows you to see all the action in vibrant 720p HD video. Ideal for anyone who has kids, pets, or grandparents at home, the camera captures smooth video and crisp digital audio that makes you feel like you're right there with them. You can watch and hear all the fun on your mobile device, wherever you go."

It described exactly what we were looking for so we got one and have been very happy with it.

Belkin NetCam Setup

Setting Up your NetCam HD

Not everyone is a tech wizard, so easy setup is important. Here is how to set up your new NetCam HD in your RV.

The NetCam HD requires that you have:

  1. power (120V AC)
  2. a place to mount it, and
  3. an internet connection.

If you have all of that in your RV you are all set to set it up.

Set up:

  1. Download the NetCam app on your tablet or phone.
  2. Switch the camera to setup mode via a switch on the back.
  3. Connect to the camera WIFI with your device.
  4. Open the NetCam App.
  5. Follow the steps in the app to setup your camera.

Once you are all set up the camera will connect to your internet connection automatically. You simply open the NetCam app on your phone or tablet anytime, selct your camera, and view what shenanigans your pets may be up to! Overall the setup was painless.

If you are using your NetCam with an an RV park WIFI, you may need to set this up whenever you go to a new park. I solved this issue by using my Verizon Jetpack hotspot so my network is always the same.


Pros

  • You can monitor and record events from your phone or tablet.
  • The picture is crystal clear HD.
  • The NetCam comes equipped with automatic night vision so you don't have to leave lights on in your RV.
  • It gives you peace of mind.
  • While you are in your RV it can double as a security camera or wild animal cam if put outside.


Cons

I fail to see any cons. It is inexpensive, has great quality, and it works as advertised.

Final Rating

Because of it's ease of use, simple setup, great price and dependability it has given us in the last 3 months, Henley's Happy Trails gives the product 4 out of 4 Tires! We hope the review was helpful to you and happy trails to you!
