Resumee

The Lupus surveillance camera made the best impression when I unpacked the devices. It is manufactured to a high quality standard. The quality of the images also makes a high-quality impression. The images are pin sharp during the day and at night. Another positive feature is the sensitive motion detection, which captures almost every image. A little oversensitive for my preference. The connection with the Internet is good. If you are connected to the Internet via the Wi-Fi antenna, the transmission may be delayed for a few seconds. All in all, it's a great surveillance camera, but there's one problem: the application urgently needs to be overhauled to be compatible with all devices.

Pro

  • Picture quality
  • Sensitive motion detection
  • Connection
  • High-quality workmanship

Cons

  • No push messages
  • App

360° View

The camera convinces in all aspects, only the app needs a little rework.

General information

The Lupus security camera LUPUS - LE201 is delivered in an illustrated and attractive packaging that is easy to open. In addition to English, the instructions are also available in several other languages and are illustrated and clearly understandable.

Scope of delivery

  • Power supply
  • Wi-Fi antenna
  • Instruction manual
  • Mounting accessories

Commissioning

You'll need a 2.4G Wi-Fi frequency bandwidth to get started. You'll also need the LupusEL app, which you can download from the App Store or Google Play. On my mobile phone (iPhone 6) I was able to use the application without any problems. When I tried to connect my tablet (Galaxy Tab A) to the camera via the app, I was unable to log in. Afterwards you only have to connect the camera with the LAN cable and plug in the power supply.

Optics

The colour of the device is mainly white.

Picture Quality

Daylight recording.
Everything is clearly visible.

Recording at night.
Even in the dark, the security camera is convincing.

If the device is connected to the Internet via the LAN cable, the picture quality is very good. The image is transmitted in real time. Even at night, the quality of the recordings is convincing. If the camera is connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi antenna, the connection might be slightly delayed.

Motion detection

Inside:

The camera does not detect every movement that occurs in the selected area. Carefully sneaking around the area sometimes worked without activating the motion detector. Obvious movements were detected.

Outside:

If the camera is used outdoors, the motion detector reacts very sensitively.

Alarm

No push messages received.

Connection

The connection via the LAN cable and Wi-Fi antenna works perfectly.

Memory

The maximum size of the memory card is 128 GB.

Weather resistance

We exposed the surveillance cameras we tested to all conceivable weather conditions for several months. Whether snow, hail or simply Hamburg's constant rain: Nothing was spared from our cameras.

The surveillance camera from Lupus could withstand all these conditions without any problems.

We have evaluated approx. 150 reviews on the Internet. In summary, it can be said that about 65 percent of customers are satisfied (4 stars) or even very satisfied (5 stars). Partially (2 stars) or completely dissatisfied are scarcely 25 per cent of the users. The average score at the time of the evaluation was 3.7 out of 5 stars.

Summary: 65% positive and 25% negative ratings

The following points were positively noted:

  • Picture quality
  • Customer service
  • Night vision

The following points were noted negatively:

  • Smartphone app often crashes down
  • Software not fully developed enough
