Anyone have suggestions on a decent network IP security cam? Not a huge wireless/wired preference, although something that is PoE compatible would be awesome.

I used to have a DLink WiFi camera that did surprisingly well for many years. I think it ran $150-200 at the time, not exactly cheap. Logitech has a system that gets excellent reviews, but it's more consumer-based for home security and I think they're locked down to the Logitech software, but I'm not certain about that.

Ultra cheap with decent reviews though - Rosewill has this gem for $40.

We run a few of the AXIS P3343-VE, but i must admit ive only heard good things about it from our security people, i do not have any personal experience with it.

I'll second that. I've heard nothing but good things about the Axis cams. I believe we have a few at work, but I can't really get close enough to tell. Besides, that might look a little suspicious if I was monkeying with the security cams :P

Almost all ip network cameras have night vision features that allow for dual-mode viewing.

1. Users have the ability to communicate with the image that they are seeing through a two way audio system and external microphones and speakers.

2. Network cameras have the capability to operate on a wireless network or through wired connections.

3. The cameras normally stream video at at least 640 x 480 resolutions, and reach up to megapixel HD resolutions.

4. Most network cameras have the ability to record at 30FPS or higher..

 

I am using 3 of Gigaeye. Cost about $50 each.Tow of the cameras have pan and tilt.The Net eye camera APP works great on my android phone.Here is the camera on amazon: http://www.amazon.co...:aps,k:gigaeye
