- Can anyone recommend an IP camera for home use?
a few weeks back and was pleasantly surprised by how good it was. Will show on phone and email you pictures of movement etc. +night vision (though I haven’t checked the range of that), nor have I checked for record functionality.
There’s a variety of similar/same ones branded under foscam or wanscam that probably equally good. Foscam is possibly a better bet as I think they are the originator of the design and consequently any firmware upgrades are more likely to work.Posted 4 years ago
Morning all, I’m thinking of getting a security camera for my home & I have had a look on ebay & there are loads ranging from about £40 to upward of £500.
But because I trust you lot & your judgement I would like a personal recommendation from someone who has used one please, I would like to be able to record on a PC/iMac if possible & be able to see the picture on my phone, night vision, alerts etc. I have no idea how much a good one will cost so open on the budget.
Thanks in advance

I have a Foscam IP camera. I think it’s the F19802w, possibly not as I have had it for a couple of years.. Mine does not record video, but does take a photo with motion and email me.
The quality of the photo’s and video is pretty poor (640×480). Night vision will not work through a window. I will check the model when I get home.
You could make a better one with a Raspberry Pi and the new camera they do. 😉Posted 4 years agoIanMunroMember
@Stoner got static IPs, so just opened a port on the router and forwarded it to the camera’s ip
Martin, just being cautious. I haven’t really used it enough to pass much comment on it. I just stuck it up in the top of a shed to monitor a swallows nest but the little gits haven’t turn up this year.Posted 4 years ago
