I have 3 of these around the outside of my house that have worked well for about a year. Software is fine on PC and android phones

Do you know, can you expose the video stream address so it can be used in other apps? I have a range of camera brands so I use a generic IP camera aggregation app, but it needs to get the RTP or RTMP, Motion Jpeg address or similar.
Great quality picture but the motion detection, as in a lot of these cameras, is poor. Records everything even if you switch down sensitivity. Especially at night. Means you get a notification for every slight movement, rain, wind etc! Sent mine back after a couple of weeks as for me, motion detection is most important factor for security camera. If anyone has any suggestions on a good camera with great motion detection, please let me know!
Can you use software on iPhones

I had similar issues and ended up turning off the motion detection. My camera stopped working after a year. I've had to try and reset it and set it up again but doesn't seem to work.
Wish 3 camels would work for me!

£35 cameras for a £1/2 Million Home.


What's wrong with that?
If it works why not.

1/2 a million isn't that much for a house in my area.
Currently in a £500-£600,000 house, 4 bed, zone 6, ok area, 15 minute walk to the station.
Seems barely above average here.

£500,000 aren't really that special in London/South East, they're not exactly filled to the rim with gold and jewelery....

It's an outdoors camera.
You don't have to give it an internet connection, most of them can record to a computer.

Yes they have RTSP enabled as default.. I have mine in BlueIris and Home Assistant. It's a very good camera for the price. The IR distance at night is pretty impressive too.

Just google iegeek camera and hack. Youll get the above article.

The article says ' Victure and ieGeek, two of the brands we tested with a flaw that could allow a hacker to access your home wi-fi network and gain complete control over the camera, had a dozen cameras in Amazon’s top 50 and thousands of postive reviews'.

Like i said buy with caution, if your happy with the risks then go head and purchase.

You need to provide wifi password on camera to connect to the router to access via app / computer. The router is connected to internet.

Got the same struggle with my Blink motion detection cameras, it records everything it shouldn’t and nothing that it actually should record.
Full storage with empty videos due to the weather (sun,rain, shades, wind etc)
And never sees the postman approaching the house for an example.

At least this one doesn’t cost 100£ compared to Blink.

I guess there’s no decent cameras out there yet unless you buy a proper wired system with storage and things
Anyone compared this to the yi camera?

Anyone compared this to the yi camera?


I mainly have yi, after playing with the zoning & sensitivity they are pretty good, have had them for a year with no problems.
I've had three Cameras identical to this installed for nearly two years without issue. They seem to be manufactured in the same factory as they're physically identical in every respect and use the same CamHi App. I've not noticed any issues with the cameras being hacked but even if I did, all the hackers would get would be shots of three sides of my garden and my two shih tzu's using a patio as a toilet. Don't the Yi camera's call home regularly too? I've not noticed any unusual network activity or access attempts in the camera's log either, unless it's hidden. I've disabled all networking functions that don't need to be on, including p2p as I don't use the App, just the Onvif stream. I do keep my cameras on their own separate wireless access point though, not for security reasons but for reliability.
This style of bullet camera are a spiders dream. Here’s nighttime footage from mine.

Useless.

I guess you either trust the Chinese or you don't, not sure I do to be honest at the moment!

Perhaps this explains the seemingly give away price the manufacturers are subsidising the cost by selling the users data. Posters are naïve if they think you'll be able to notice them using your data after Google etc do w/o you noticing when you browse the internet.

Surely most outside cameras are going to suffer from this unless it has a wiper on it? Do you know of any that avoid that issue ? I guess you could put a conker on it .... they don't like conkers!

Dome cameras are better but suffer some reflection. I use the Reolink RLC-420 now and they don’t have this issue at all.

Riolink are good, you can use them with your NAS too
Anyone know what cameras are compatible with swann dvr8800
I have a few of these exact cameras outside my house. Pic quality .. quite good. Motion detection setup ... not the best, passable.

I have them set all up to motion trigger and FTP the captured images to a defined location on my network.

Years ago, I took the precaution of setting up my own firewall. I used an old unused pc and installed Smoothwall Express software (smoothwall.org/) on to it. Software is free. There are other firewall software out there too, so you can research if there is better.

Using Smoothwall, I placed all the IP cameras on a separate network (called the "orange" network) and all my family's laptops/pc/phones etc on their own network (called the "green" network). Setup can get much more complicated than this, if you like. But this is just a simple overview.

The orange network is more exposed to the outside world. By default the "orange" network cannot see the "green" network. So even if an "unscrupulous" accesses the orange network ... while they could possibly see my camera stream (not too worried about that), they can't get into the green network. That's the theory.

If you have some time on your hands it is worth reading up on and maybe setting one up.

Simply put, using an old pc and some free firewall software, you can protect your home network and fine tune who/what you allow in to your network. At the time, one of my other reasons for doing the build was because I wanted to learn a bit more about networks.

Very interesting and I can see that this does make sense. There must be a Youtube video on how to set this type of system up. Thanks for your information.
Just block internet access at your router
