How is the security of attacks from the internet? I've been reading about these cheap ones and they even have built in vulnerabilities...
Choose a strong password and keep the firmware up to date and you'll be fine.
Is that in general for all cameras or just well received brands? (I was originally looking at the Xiomi one which looked quite low profile)

Thats general for all cameras. The main difference between brands is better support and updates. I don't own a Xiomi camera, but do own quite a few Foscam ones.

Generally software bugs and firmware updates will be released more regularly for more well known brands like Foscam.

These "security" cameras are still way overpriced. My partner just bought a 12 MegaPixel camera for his car and it only cost £24.00 the detail at maximum quality chugging 30fps is astounding.
They ignore any and all requests to cease sending newsletters too!
lol and they are easy as anything to hack as they still have not fully patched the firmware

Im learning from this thread as we go. I am quite tempted to buy a few of these hikvision ones and connect them via a POE switch. What I'd like to do is to record all the streams on a 24 hour basis but only on motion detection to save on disk space. I have an HP microserver that I use as a NAS, I have windows 8.1 installed on it so can install anything I want on it. Which DVR software or tool would you guys recommend for lets say 4 cameras set up at 1080p + night vision and only activated via motion detection?

I run Zoneminder on Linux on an old laptop as well as iSpy64 on a windows machine. iSpy64 is by far the easiest to configure.

Thanks for your detailed response however, I need a solution for a windows machine. Did some digging and Blue Iris might be what I am looking for.

I use Xprotect Go from Milestone to monitor my Qvis AMB-MB2 2MP cameras. I have 4 of them, using POE from a Netgear GS108PE. Xprotect Go is free and will allow you to monitor up to 8 cameras, being Windows it does require decent hardware. I have just upgraded my NVR PC to an i3 laptop with 4GB of ram which now seems to run fine.
Before the upgrade it was running the 4 cameras on an old Dell Optiplex 380 (intel E7500) which was OK but a bit slow.

Like pgregg mentions above I also have a HP Microserver which I use to share a 2TB hard drive via iscsi to the laptop as the storage. All in all it works floorlessly, recording is set to always and motion detection.

The old small bug bear is that Xprotect Go being free will only allow you to keep the last 5 days of recordings before it writes over it. For me this is of no issue but thought I would mention it as it might affect some. Obviously you can upgrade to different levels of Xprotect but for me it had to be free software :-)

I'm running Zoneminder on linux. I also have a HP microserver - fantastic little box and more than capable of running 4 cameras.. tho I don't use mine for the cameras.
Anyway, I don't know how it works on windows, but in zoneminder there are several options to tell it how to record.
- None – The monitor is currently disabled. No streams can be viewed or events generated. Nothing is recorded.
- Monitor – The monitor is only available for live streaming. No image analysis is done so no alarms or events will be generated, and nothing will be recorded.
- Modect – or MOtion DEteCTtion. All captured images will be analysed and events generated with recorded video where motion is detected.
- Record – The monitor will be continuously recorded. Events of a fixed-length will be generated regardless of motion, analogous to a conventional time-lapse video recorder. No motion detection takes place in this mode.
- Mocord – The monitor will be continuously recorded, with any motion being highlighted within those events.
- Nodect – or No DEteCTtion. This is a special mode designed to be used with external triggers. In Nodect no motion detection takes place but events are recorded if external triggers require it.

I tried them all, and the one that is most useful to me is "MoCord".
Every frame is recorded and written to disk. Any motion that it detects (using custom zones that I can configure via the web interface, and above a specific threshhold) it sets an "Alarm" on those frames.
I also have a scheduled task that checks disk space and goes through removing old recorded frames - so it self-manages. I get about 1 month of continuous recording for 2 cameras.

On the management web page, I can see how many alarms happened that day and it gives me short cuts to click and watch those videos. If there is something I want to keep, there is an archive button. I click that and it never gets deleted.

The reason for my choice of record everything + alarm on motion is that, sometimes, motion detection sucks and it just misses things. This way if I know something happened that was too small to trigger a motion detection in a zone... like the neighbours dog taking a dump at the end of my driveway, I can pan through and see it anyway.

so I changed mine to just ask for the JPG 5 times a second. Saves a ton of CPU at the ZM side.
Paul, how many cameras are you running off your server? Are they all IP cams at 1M? Do you have any on capture cards? And what spec is the ZM box? I'm also guessing you're using the 10M poe is this causing any issues?

Currently 2 cameras at 960p (1.3Mp), running off a *very* low powered D525 Atom based computer.
I wrote about the server here http://pgregg.com/blog/2011/04/what-16tb-raw-space-looks-like/
It is getting on a bit now having been through a few different uses. Finally settling on being the ZM server. 2GB ram and 2x2TB harddisks.
Load sits on average at 0.8, so I may have to tweak things to see if I can get it to handle 4 cameras. I'll probably just lower the framerate to 3fps and switch the 920p cameras to 720p.
I don't have any capture cards - that would be only for analogue cameras.
Switch is a 8 port 1Gb POE switch (with just 4 ports POE) http://www.amazon.co.uk/NETGEAR-GS108PE-300EUS-ProSAFE-Gigabit-Ethernet/dp/B00LMXBOG8
Obviously these cameras don't have Gb connections, so they run at (iirc) 100Mb. No issues with networking.

Do you need to buy an outdoors model, i have 2 of the Foscams inside buy viewing outside, the only thing to remember is to turn the IR off at night as it reflects of the glass, remotely you can do this with that app.
I had one of these and it would lock up if there was a lot of movement in it's area of view. Not recommended.
Thanks, I'll give one of those a go, see how I get on.
I had a pair of these, whilst eay to set up and ok picture quality they do look slightly naff in silver. I sent then back having bought these off ebay which are smaller, white and better picture quality. I use blue iris too.

What software does anyone user for recording upon motion detection?
The ebuyer one has gone now so I think this is the cheapest deal now for this camera.
jaypr
Well if you do, buy it from ebuyer because as mentioned earlier its £49.99.

I'm actually tempted to by a few to replace my older FI8918W models, because £49.99 is the best price this has ever been.
I'm tempted by the saving, could do with that!
Problem is the feedback for ebuyer is abysmal!
Also, newbies like me would have no helping hand from Foscam when setting it up.:(
