I am currently playing with a £19 Xiaomi Dafang camera and I am blown away at the image quality. It also has movement tracking. If you only need a few internal cameras I would recommend anyone take a look at these and grab them when on special.
Whats the night performance like on these.
I have a 5 year old Foscam that I gave up on as I could never get the contrast right.
It was either too dark or too light such that faces just became all white like ghosts.
I gave up on it in the end but would like to get it working again really, even if I have to buy a new camera.

Thanks

Cat 5 is far better - I now run mine with Cat 5 and a powerline adapter as the wifi was so poor. I tried a number of different aerials but they didn't make a massive difference - range and stability were poor. Mine runs onto a Foscam NVR. In terms of software I use the latest

Proper PoE is a different beast, and you're right that this isn't a PoE model.

Passive injectors and splitters are just a simple hijack of the wire pairs that 10/100mb (non-gigabit) ethernet doesn't need. Put the power in at one end, pull it back out at the other.

Cheap, quick and dirty but effectively.

Use a waterproof main extension socket box (minus socket) to house the wiring if doing externally, with the splitter end of a passive PoE injector pair inside the box. Run a Cat5e (exterior grade) cable in using a PG7 nipple, and terminate with an RJ45 inside the box. Put the wiring from the camera in via the flap (that you would normally run the cord for the mower or whatever, if it was an actual main socket inside). Use the passive injector at your network switch end, and you then only have one cable to run, and have wired stability and performance. Works brilliantly with Contacam since the new version, although iSpy and Blue Iris are more traditional choices.

I like the WIFI NVR kits 3104W, so easy to use
Once I would have voted this hot. I have a couple of cameras and an nvr. The firmware is buggy on all of them. The nvr that allows me to view my one 1080p camera cannot record at 1080p. The Wi-Fi on the 1080p is dreadful resulting in constant drops. The other cameras have better wifi but a number of other firmware related issues.I'd be very careful before spending good money on Foscam hardware.

It's the same for me, all works well, but when not in the browser it fails to follow any motion detection rules. I read somewhere that it works OK with FTP to another location, but not so when SD card. Definitely a bug.

The other thing is there are now a few versions of this C1, I am using V3 delivered by Amazon, and the firmware for this is different, so perhaps they have forgotten to correct it for this firmware.

The quality of the camera and the angle is very good, I would have been very happy keeping the product otherwise.

Edited by: "bargain76" 28th Jan 2016
I've got one and I've been testing it for a day. So far I've lost the link from my iphone to the camera and unable to recreate it despite deleting and then recreating. I then tried to access the camera from a browser. Unfortunately it will not work if your Windows PC is 64 bit. I then used the browser from the laptop which runs on Windows 32 bit but still no connection. So far I have no way see what is on the camera real time. I also could not find anywhere in the phone app (when it did work) on how to send a photo or video clip to my email. Support said it can be done but didn't say how so I'll have to chase up unless I return it for a refund. There was also no way to view local recordings through the phone app.

What do you mean view the NVR remotely?

If it's to actually control the NVR fully, then I don't think there are that many consumer level OEM set-ups out there that enable you to do that. Plus any out there are generally only geared up for IE on a Windows PC. If the cameras are ONVIF compatible, then you could use a third party set-up with an old PC.

I use Xprotect Go from Milestone to monitor my Qvis AMB-MB2 2MP cameras. I have 4 of them, using POE from a Netgear GS108PE. Xprotect Go is free and will allow you to monitor up to 8 cameras, being Windows it does require decent hardware. I have just upgraded my NVR PC to an i3 laptop with 4GB of ram which now seems to run fine.
Before the upgrade it was running the 4 cameras on an old Dell Optiplex 380 (intel E7500) which was OK but a bit slow.

Like pgregg mentions above I also have a HP Microserver which I use to share a 2TB hard drive via iscsi to the laptop as the storage. All in all it works floorlessly, recording is set to always and motion detection.

The old small bug bear is that Xprotect Go being free will only allow you to keep the last 5 days of recordings before it writes over it. For me this is of no issue but thought I would mention it as it might affect some. Obviously you can upgrade to different levels of Xprotect but for me it had to be free software :-)

Which DVR software or tool would you guys recommend for lets say 4 cameras set up at 1080p + night vision and only activated via motion detection?



I'm running Zoneminder on linux. I also have a HP microserver - fantastic little box and more than capable of running 4 cameras.. tho I don't use mine for the cameras.
Anyway, I don't know how it works on windows, but in zoneminder there are several options to tell it how to record.
- None – The monitor is currently disabled. No streams can be viewed or events generated. Nothing is recorded.
- Monitor – The monitor is only available for live streaming. No image analysis is done so no alarms or events will be generated, and nothing will be recorded.
- Modect – or MOtion DEteCTtion. All captured images will be analysed and events generated with recorded video where motion is detected.
- Record – The monitor will be continuously recorded. Events of a fixed-length will be generated regardless of motion, analogous to a conventional time-lapse video recorder. No motion detection takes place in this mode.
- Mocord – The monitor will be continuously recorded, with any motion being highlighted within those events.
- Nodect – or No DEteCTtion. This is a special mode designed to be used with external triggers. In Nodect no motion detection takes place but events are recorded if external triggers require it.

I tried them all, and the one that is most useful to me is "MoCord".
Every frame is recorded and written to disk. Any motion that it detects (using custom zones that I can configure via the web interface, and above a specific threshhold) it sets an "Alarm" on those frames.
I also have a scheduled task that checks disk space and goes through removing old recorded frames - so it self-manages. I get about 1 month of continuous recording for 2 cameras.

On the management web page, I can see how many alarms happened that day and it gives me short cuts to click and watch those videos. If there is something I want to keep, there is an archive button. I click that and it never gets deleted.

The reason for my choice of record everything + alarm on motion is that, sometimes, motion detection sucks and it just misses things. This way if I know something happened that was too small to trigger a motion detection in a zone... like the neighbours dog taking a dump at the end of my driveway, I can pan through and see it anyway.

Paul, how many cameras are you running off your server? Are they all IP … Paul, how many cameras are you running off your server? Are they all IP cams at 1M? Do you have any on capture cards? And what spec is the ZM box? I'm also guessing you're using the 10M poe is this causing any issues?



Currently 2 cameras at 960p (1.3Mp), running off a *very* low powered D525 Atom based computer.
I wrote about the server here pgregg.com/blo…ke/
It is getting on a bit now having been through a few different uses. Finally settling on being the ZM server. 2GB ram and 2x2TB harddisks.
Load sits on average at 0.8, so I may have to tweak things to see if I can get it to handle 4 cameras. I'll probably just lower the framerate to 3fps and switch the 920p cameras to 720p.
I don't have any capture cards - that would be only for analogue cameras.
Switch is a 8 port 1Gb POE switch (with just 4 ports POE) amazon.co.uk/NET…OG8
Obviously these cameras don't have Gb connections, so they run at (iirc) 100Mb. No issues with networking.
