I have one of these. It is good. I have 4 of the 1080p ones too. They too are good.
Can you tell the difference between the 720 and the 1080?
For static indoor use, I use the 720. The rest I have outside where there is more movement. They are all good.
I only need it to point out the front bedroom window. I know it's only £5 difference between the dome and standard camera but is it better to go for the standard as I guess less can go wrong in the future with the motor etc?

If you point it out of the bedroom window, make sure you switch the infra red off. It will just cause them to reflect else.

One of them the USB goes into the attic, then I got an extender USB into my sitting room plug.
The other I drilled in through the outer wall into my bedroom, then plugged into an extenion socket.
For looking through windows the black ones are best, less reflection. I have 3 good cameras
Give our Asian overlords access into our homes since you do need to be signed into a foreign server to use these, no?
940nm leds I have and they still give glare bounce back off window.even when turned off the camera gives a glow on night mode.
However I have mine poking through a gab to overcome the glare. If there is enough external light you would get away with normal mode and not bother with night mode.

I have owned a couple of these, and while they are excellent options for home surveillance, 720p is not good enough, which you'll soon realise like I did. 720p is good, but for facial details and number plate reading on any vehicle going over 5mph you'll need a 1080p resolution.
Excellent camera

How do they fare outside, are they IP rated ?
Anyone get these to work on Synology Surveillance Station?
Buy 1080p model. Much better picture
Any Alexa integration ?

Not ip rated, but as long as you have them under eaves or something they are fine. Below is one of my 3 that are outside.

Which rooms have you got these in so I can avoid getting caught? - only joking, good idea, I'm going to do the same
I bought the 1080p model and was unimpressed. The image quality on mine was poor and there was no way to directly download video to my PC, other than removing the SD card from the camera. But the biggest negative was the competely unnecessary requirement to be logged in to their server to have any access to the camera.

“Asian overlords sell security cameras on amazon with the aim of gaining access to our homes”

that’s what I call a conspiracy
What's the cheapest this 720p ever been? I want one but I would want 720p one around £10 and 1080p one around £20

I believe this can only be done using an RTSP stream, however, at present I don’t think there’s a hack out there to enable an RTSP server to run on the device, just FTP.
Hi

Was just about to purchase this camera but the price is not £24.99 but £34.99.

Is there a code or something to get it for £24.99?

Thanks

Think it’s expired now and price back to normal, I bought one about 4-5 months back for 22 quid.

If you’re worried about data sovereignty then can you suggest a good British-made IP camera in this price range? Or can you assemble one yourself? As I literally don’t see how you can ever be 100% sure someone isn’t snooping on your data unless you control every single aspect of it (from the camera hardware, to the internet pipeline, wireless signals). You take reasonable precaution and that is enough, you don’t use these cameras for mission critical applications or anything where the data being compromised would pose a threat is about the best you can hope for.
Looks like it £34.99 now. I am only wanting something to record it in the street where I park my car as I'm having some issues with my neighbour and he has had history of smashing lights on cars.
