IP Camera's

Postby bluenose » Thu, 25 Oct 2012 8:41 am

Anyone know where to get reasonable IP cameras and how easy it is to set up.
I am going away to UK and need to monitor my house occasionally

I got a Panasonic one from Sim Lim it was very simple as long as you are comfortable with setting port exceptions on your router.

Can't remember the model right now, nor the shop, but, it was about $250 and it's a tilt pan zoom one

They can be bought from many places including the mentioned SLS but going there you may feel a bit overwhelmed by the choice. I use and used a few models and brands and there is not much of the difference so actually I would go for the price and functionality.

As a price guide you may take this (see pages 17/18):

They are a bit overpriced so I normally don't buy from them but their choice is good. If your budget allows I would buy a PTZ camera i.e. TPLink TL-SC4147G as it allows you to change the viewing spot and also have two way audio communication (just in case). If you don't want to spend too much go for anything cheaper in a sub-$100 range (i.e. Aztech IP Wifi cameras - you may buy them also in HN, Challenger etc). Just check on the box what surveillance software is included. If you have a router you will have to configure it anyway unless it will go via some camera-push technology.

Well,
I bought a D Link camera from Funan for about 150 dollars, does the job and was easy peasy to set up.....although now I like the idea of 2 way communication camera!
