Newbie to this cam tech! Is there away to switch off/control infared, can't see anything obvious via cam app settings, also I've inserted a 32gb microSD but in the record settings when I apply it keeps saying SD card not ready, do I need to reformat SD card , if so how to reformat, as it's been used for music files via mobile in past? thanks

The smartphone Ebitcam control app describes the cam as a "Head shaking machine." Groovy.
See the recent post for this. As a techie I was not expecting to have to communicate with Ebitcam support in China (over the period of almost a week!) in order to get the camera working on a secured WiFi network (unsecured was a breeze). It's possible though, but I'd recommend doing a factory reset when you open the box.

Which other good 1080p cameras are there?
The ebitcam doesn't have Onvif or RTSP so you'll never be able to hook it up to an NVR or NVR software in the future should you want to. So if you find the app rubbish to use, then you're out of luck.

If you have a camera with onvif support, you can use other software to control it like Blue Iris.

You can find cameras with similar spec but with onvif/rtsp for a similar price like this one amazon.co.uk/Big…65T

Don't waste your money on something that will force you to be stuck using a trash app.
Onvif support was the the first thing I looked for. Shame, I'd have bought a couple if onvif was supported.

Looks good if you don't need onvif support.

Same camera here:

amazon.co.uk/SV3…h=1

and here...

It's if you have your own NVR or NVR software you can use the app for that NVR/Software.

I've got a hikvision NVR and also used Blue Iris. Both offer better apps/recording capabilities.

If you want a quality system, then I recommend a Hikvision NVR (I've got the DS-7608NI-E1 but 7604 is enough if you don't have more than 4 cameras). However, 90% of the advanced features (and even motion detection) don't work unless you have Hikvision Cameras so it can get a bit pricey (chinese multi language hikvision camera's work fine). The app is free to use and you get a web interface you can log into to view your live and recorded footage without having to go to the NVR itself.

I use my Hikvision NVR and camera's to have 2 camera's at the front, 1 at the back, 1 on the landing and 1 the hallway.

To use with cheap budget camera's; I recommend Blue Iris software. I've got that set up on an old laptop, you can download and use for free (with watermarks) for 2 weeks I think. Then it's $60 for the license to have unlimited cameras. Blue Iris uses software motion detection so it doesn't depend on the camera's hardware motion detection. The spec for your laptop/server depends on how many cameras you have setup and the resolution of them. I've got an old i3 laptop with 8GB RAM and a 512 HD set up. I only use this to monitor my cheaper camera's which I have in my office, living room and kitchen.

With Blue Iris, you can access it via a web interface so you don't really need to ever open the laptop lid once it's set up and you can move the camera etc. You can also install the app which annoyingly they charge $9.99 for.

The hikvision set up is very easy to configure and you never need to do anything ever again once set up. The Blue Iris software is a bit fiddly getting all the stuff right and also as it's installed on a laptop you need to make sure that the laptop doesn't randomly crash or anything.

There are obviously cheaper setups that you can buy that do the job well enough if you want to save costs. For older people, an NVR + camera's may be better than Blue Iris.

If you bought this ebitcam camera, you only have the options available to you in the app which is why it's important to always buy a camera onvif compatible.
Are there any cameras on the market that will just record to memory card on a loop and can be linked to an android phone?
Don't want to fork out for a subscription for just one of these.
It's just to check on my dogs if I have to nip out
