The Compro IP540 came in a very nice looking package. The box art was very informative on all the specifications and capabilities of the unit, including expandability options such as the optional 802.11n upgrade and the Digital I/O expansion box for use with sensors. 

The box underneath the outer packaging was a plain brown box, however the unit was packed very securely with more than adequate foam packing to keep it protected during shipment.

The package includes a camera unit, power and network cables, mounting kit, software CD, manual  and our unit even included an update sheet outlining new features that were included in the latest firmware update.

    Thanks for an excellent review as well as posting the video samples.

    The night shot in the nursery with the empty swing has a very "Paranormal Activity" like effect to it... kinda creepy actually.

    I'm having a hard time getting a feel for the size of the camera. Do you have any shots of it with something for size reference, or at least some measurement specs?

    I like the idea of this, but I get the feeling that something of this size (or maybe any PT camera) is too large to put on the ceiling of my home or even my office without being distractingly out of place. Maybe there's an option of mounting it in a dark glass hemisphere...

    Looking forward to seeing more IP cameras in this price range reviewed.

    Thanks for the dimensions. Somehow I must have glossed over the pictures with the CDs in it. Reply

    Can this system be used outside? Does it need an environmental enclosure or can it be mounted under an eve away from weather and still function? What are the temperature specs? Reply

    Here are the temperature specs, there is no mention of this being an outdoor camera however. Operating Condition: 5 °C ~ 40 °C Reply
