Swann Cloud HD ADS-446 720P Pan & Tilt Wi-Fi IP Security Camera With Remote Viewing less than half price at £49.95 including delivery at Amazon.

Being looking for a wifi cam to keep an eye on things while I'm not at home. My local PCSO also recommended something like this.
Initially saw this on Amazon for £99 (it still is) and then spotted this discounted one at £49.95 with free delivery.

Reviews for this are pretty positive, although it'd be interesting to see what others think of these cameras in general. Judging by reviews, it seems this one gives a really clear picture indoors - so very handy for keeping an eye on pets left at home etc, as well as unwelcome visitors!

1280 x720, reviewers are happy with the clarity too

For a few quid less you can get this one, which also has two way audio and a slightly better field of view.

£50 is the max you should be paying for something like this.

Absolutely, £50 or less is sensible territory for these sort of things, can't believe Maplin have the Swann ads-446 for £120!

no IR cut, so cold.

viewing over your mobile phone via 4g and the picture quality drops considerably.

EDIT: also no use for looking out through a window at night as the LEDs bounce back and the range when not behind a reflective surface is not very good at night!

the keekoon already mentioned.



Way round this is to turn the IR leds off on the camera and install an IR lamp externally, such as these.

Any idea what the difference is between the two models (KK001 and KK002), other than shape?£50 is the max you should be paying for something like this.

Is that a pretty good one then (model and brand)? Recently bought a house and looking to kit it out with these.
Ideally I think I want a loop record on the module with alert on the app.

I was looking into these a few years ago but Im sure technology has moved on since any Ebay/Asian ones worth having a look at?

Thanks!

Have not used this particular one myself, but the Amazon reviews (always take with a pinch of salt) seem positive. And there are a lot of questions answered by the supplier, which shows a decent level of customer service.

The spec list seems to cover everything. Also claims to support 'onvif' so other apps should work with it and if you decide to get a separate NVR (recorder) these should work. You could probably buy for a little less direct from China.

Foscam are also a good brand for these things in this price range. Around £95 for a twin set on Amazon. Not sure if they have mics though.

Remember these are wireless, but still need a power supply. The other option are PoE ones. Tend to be better quality, but more expensive. Plus you will need a PoE (Power over Ethernet) capable network switch. Obviosuly still one wire needs to get to the camera, but you save on power supplies.

Good thing about Amazon is you can at least see if it lives up to the description, otherwise return it.

Thanks, whats so good about Foscam? its got lower reso than the previous link. Hmm i'll have to look into it some more.
Yeah PoE is still infancy stage at the moment (market wise), there's also PoE ++ out soon so its still very new.. Also running cables in the house is not something I can see myself doing :D.

I have tried the Swann system, the units are quite good, but the app/s........ Not good.

Personally I have found Foscam products and their customer support to generally be spot on. I don't usually use the bundled software, but make sure the camera is onvif compatible and use almost any other ip camera software.

Here is a link to their website and a similar spec (as far as I can tell) camera to the one in the deal, but with two way mic and also a wider field of view - but it is a little more expensive (£59.99 direct from them). I don't remember if it has ir cut-out if that's important to you.

Btw PoE has been out a long time and is the set-up I would recommend. But it is more expensive.

PoE in its infancy? Really? I've been running PoE at work for 11 years if you're counting the standards based stuff (802.3af) and 15 years since the turn of the century for some pre-PoE standards implementation (which was for Wifi). Now running 15k ports of PoE supplying all manner of devices.
