The SNH-1011N and the Refurbished Samsung Smartcam V2.0: looks the same, but something's different.
The SNH-1011N was one of the earlier IP camera models that was released by Samsung. They designed it be to simple, sleek, and easy to set up for the regular consumer. As it turns out, the original wasn't so simple. With this issue and that issue, what began as a great idea simply led to frustrations, one after another. What was supposed to be a wireless camera required a wired connection in order to be set up along with a few other issues as well. I will not bore you with the problems it had back then, but these refurbished units are definitely something else. What's changed? Only a few things, but those few things have made this product a whole lot better.
The biggest and best change that came about with these refurbished units was the Direct Wi-Fi capability. This allows users to directly connect to their wireless networks without the hassle of setting it up while connected to your router and then having to move it to your desired location. As small of a move as that may seem, the convenience factor increases quite a bit. As the booting time may be a bit longer than you like, having to plug the camera in the general vicinity of where you'd like to set it up allows you to get your video feed and never have to move the camera more than where you started.
Another big change is the LED status lights. Before, there were times on the SNH-1011N where the status lights would confuse users and you'd never really know if you got yours to work or not. Now there are definitive answers to what your LED lights are trying to say to you. We at Soltech have made YouTube tutorials and guides based on how we've used it and how we've set it up to show you how user friendly it is. Many times a lot of guides and tutorials only show you the best of the best situations. We've made the video so that it's actually us setting the camera up and us signing up for the camera as well.
So before you decide to purchase this IP camera, be sure you know what you're getting!
