Was looking for a WiFi based IP Camera and I've got these Sricam's already and they are pretty decent for the money. This is a bargain at £17.20 and even comes with a UK plug. I ended up paying £14.00 with my Gearbest points, so it made it even sweeter.

Has SD card slot, WiFi capability and is ONVIF compatible, so can connect to a ONVIF compatible CCTV DVR wirelessly or via ethernet port.

You can also pan and tilt the camera via a mobile device, PC or your DVR!

You can choose the priority line delivery option at checkout for no extra cost. From my experience, these are dispatched from a Europe address too, so no custom fees :)

We need to be more cautious with internet connected gizmos, because how secure is this camera? Plenty of IP cams have been hacked (with access to video OR they have been turned into a bot to carry out attacks), and from what I read the cheap Chinese devices seem to be the easiest to hack...

Hmmm, the default user name and password of this internet connected camera are in the Mirai source code (which was used for the attacks last week..) :-o

I have a Sricam, SP009, I assume since this uses a QR code, it uses the same method of connection as mine. I don't like using the app, the camera uses P2P to connect, a lot of these IP cameras are these days. I checked my firewall logs and it's constantly talking to P2P servers, mostly in China. I didn't like this at all, so I blocked the camera from talking to the internet. You can't use the app at all anymore but I use a third party onvif app internally (and externally using a VPN). Unfortunately the app doesn't display the camera @ 720p, it drops down to a SD resolution instead, might be my model only though.

For the money, it is a bargain, the quality is noticeably better than my older SD Foscam when using the Sricam app, I just don't trust it. I may be paranoid oO , I just don't feel comfortable with it as camera inside of my house.

How does the app work with this? Do you have to mess around with DNS and IPs or is it plug and play?

The video quality is pretty reasonable for a 720p. I'm quite happy with the night quality, considering thats where it usually falls apart, especially indoors.

The viewing app is quite simple and fairly straightforward (I use it on Android) but once you've intially set it up using the Sricam app you can then use another third party ONVIF app or use your DVR app (which is what I use) so that all my cameras are in one place (wired and wireless). The only thing i've found with the Sricam app is it can run on the background so can be a system/battery hog, but like I said, its can be dealt with easily by using another app, once intially setup. Setup is easy - just scan a QR code and away you go!

You can input these details or simply, scan the QR code and it connects automatically. Very straightforward. I'd recommend changing the password though, once setup. It takes seconds if you use the QR code method.

A third party app i'd recommend for this once setup is Tinycam.

Think it must have been this one, which is different to this...http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/720p-wireless-pan-tilt-ip-indoor-camera-9-99-prime-13-98-non-prime-sold-dvtecheu-2527153?page=2#comments

Some IP cameras claim to be ONVIF compatible but they are a **** to connect. I found this with a Foscam one I recently bought and sent back. If they aren't they don't like other third party apps or a IP DVR. I guess its only important if you wish to use these.
#10
the problem with the ONVIF compatible part is finding the correct camera name as the one that is displayed in the setup and app is not necessarily the one that a third party ONVIF app would use. I recently bought another brand and i had to use tinycam to find the real camera name. tinycam will display 2 for it. when that was put in it worked perfectly with surveillance station on my synology NAS. before this it couldn't find it. Agree about the app though due to the routing it can be very laggy when watching. connecting directly my NAS I have a lot better results for playback and the app is also smaller in size and less of a hog.

Have you checked what ONVIF profiles are available? The default profile on one of my IP cams is only SD, so I have to select the 720p profile manually in most Onvif apps, or else edit the rtsp stream url.

£18.40 for me? Is there a code?

Guess it's the exchange rate, says £17.20 on the site, buy the time you buy it with pp it's £18.44, just a heads up, I ordered anyway always wanted to have a play with an ip camera, so cheers Op

Can you install this camera outside a house or is it indoor only? If it's indoor only will it have problems looking through a window at nighttime?

Guessing this is indoors

Hey, I'm using TinyCam Pro on Android. I've found onvif1 and onvif2, one is low def and the other is even lower def oO I have the same problem when adding it to my QNAP

It doesn't seem to 'up' the price then.

Coming from China, if accurately valued on the label, aren't you going to get hit by VAT and a lovely £8 handling fee?

Everytime i've ordered an electrical item from Gearbest and selected their 'priority shipping' its shipped from the Netherlands and delivered by DHL/Yodel. As its within the EU, no issues!

If this is constantly uploading to a server, how does this effect your broadband usage? I'm on unlimited, but only within reason.

Hi which camera do you have my flourean is the sp012 it comes up with that on tiny cam too. I Googled around and setup mine in synology but have no sound can record fine. my synology settings that work are: port 554, brand: user define, source path: /onvif1, username of cam and password I set. the ovif1 gives me HD quality think 2 sd. but I would really like to get the sound working.

I have this one. Works wonders. Points at the back door and setup to email me on movement. GUI is poor but easy enough to understand.

It doesn't cope well at night through glass, you see nothing ok during the day though.

Might as well unplug your Samsung, iPhone or Sony phone then too.

Mine has just been dispatched now and I only ordered it this afternoon!

For anyone worried about customs - I've just checked the photo that Gearbest post up of the parcel and address label - it is being shipped by Yodel and is being sent from the UK - so no customs 8)
