You could always mount it in a some kind of case or make some kind of housing for it.

To broadcast over the net with this, would you need a static IP address?

[COLOR="Navy"]According to the web site:

The TZO domain service (one-year trial sign-up included) lets you access your camera using an easy-to-remember "name", even if your home Internet connection uses a dynamic IP address.[/COLOR]

This is new to me. If I understand this right, this will connect wirelessly to a modem router with no need for a computer at the camera location to be switched on and people will be able to view the camera output anywhere in the world using a web browser. Have I got that right? and can anyone who knows the static IP address or TZO domain name view it or is there some form of security to limit access?
#7
Surely something like no-ip would suffice?

Indeed, and supported by a lot of routers these days so you don't even need to run anything on your pc.
#9
see...
However, it's slightly disappointing that the only dynamic DNS provider is TZO (which is a paid-for service) rather than DynDNS.com (which is free). This isn't a problem if your router has its own DDNS function, though.

Cool just ordered one many thanks to OP

Now how can we avoid the subscription service, I wouldnt mind even if it took pictures and sent it to my email...Something to look into....Bargains thanks to OP
#15
Read the description, it has its own web server built in, it uses your wireless router or access point to pick up an IP address. You configure said web browser with your PC to begin with. Once this is done and registered you can start using it without your PC.
#16
Damn shame it uses tzo rather than something like dyndns. Great price but I will resist temptation.
#17
Great Deal! Voted Hot!

ordered .....thankyou for the post...well happy

Is this a wind-up?

If you haven't got a static IP, then last time I looked, there were *plenty* of free DNS services that work just fine. There is no requirement to use the service offered with the camera.

If you already have a static IP then Robert is your father's brother.

Voted hot got £30 burning a hole in my paypal account & always on the look out for a new toy new toy.

Well the webcam need a router to work anyway,

And most routers supports dynamic IP DNS services. So as long as your router supports a free dynamic IP DNS service, you don't need to pay tzo if you have a dynamic IP.

============================================================

Also according to the spec

"UPnP Advertise"

It must be using port forwarding - hence it is accessed via the same IP with the Router.

Good deal, thanks.

I just bought one of these and have to say fantastic piece of kit for the price. . these were £53 quid from misco about 2 weeks ago but now back up in price - Needless to say i missed misco's deal so went with ebuyer then this shows up.

You dont need to pay for the ddns as you get 1 year free trial with TZO although i wont be using that as im now thinkin of buying webspace and embedding cam on a site..I also have the netgear DG834GT router and use the dgteam firmware which allows me to use either dyn-dns or no-ip without a pc to update IP other netgears might do the same, The original firmware let me use dyn-dns only.

The quality of the picture is pretty good for the price...it does suffer in low light so wont work well in a dark room etc but at this price you cant really expect a night vision camera especially wireless.

There is a limitation to the amount of clients accepted by the cam which is 4 at a time but the camera can be embedded onto a website but is not supported out the box.

Check out http://www.ultratech.us/cam.html (5 hours behind uk) this will enable you to judge if right for you by seeing the quality. The quality can also be changed in the cam's settings for people with low upload speed. Also on that site is links to a guide that will enable you to embed cam onto a site which is pretty easy.

Also the cam does use UPnP

Overall i rate it very good and this price is a bargain, Not the best by all means but does the job when there's light.

From the link i posted earlier i think they have it outside but could be wrong. . check about lunchtime tomorrow as they are 5 hours behind.

I would say aslong as totally shielded from the elements then yes. . the stand has holes so as to hang on screws etc so fairly easy to install anywhwere

It is NOT outdoors.

Can't connect atm but the last time i checked it was pitch black so i suspect he has moved the camera's position as if you read the bottom it says about the horses etc...i still could be wrong but it looked like it was outside earlier.

Also figured out that using vlcplayer you can connect to the cam as a client view video and also stream at the same time to countless others including websites bypassing the 4 client rule

edit to say he has moved the camera since earlier....and i did say to look at lunch time tomorrow when it will be light there! but anyway have a look tomorrow when hopefully it will be back to normal
#33
Anyone know how this is powered?

The specification states 5v 1a. Is this some type of battery? Or does it use an adaptor plugged into a mains socket?

It's rude to post misinformation when you've not taken the time to research. This site is full of people who post misinformation and then don't have the good manners to apologise for their mistakes so why should people be polite to them?
