Hi All, wanted to read about this IP camera as i need one but it is 140+ pages.

I just need an IP camera that can do recording on my NAS (synology) or any memory card, allow real time viewing from anywhere using my android and has tracking motion, with acceptable (no need HD) video quality in dim light and something doesnt looks like camera (doesnt want the maid to feel intimidated)

Planning to put this in my living room to see my boy and maid. Appreciate if somebody expert can recommend few option. Budget is anything below $200, of course if there is anything that can serve the above purpose in cheaper price, will appreciate it.

Thanks
You can try EasyN H3-187V or H3-137V. I bougth mine from Easyn Singapore and used this for almost 1 year already.

Maybe you can try

/videostream.cgi?username=admin&userpwd=888888 behind?

Not sure if this will work, saw this off a forum elsewhere for another camera.

But I do not think it is possible for VStarcam although /videostream.cgi is used on the IP Camera Viewer's Generic JPEG pathing.

But some of these china sets are good... and cheap until they close down.
That's why they close down...

Interesting thought. I but prefer to think of it this way. If company pays me well, then I'll do lots of things for them. Otherwise, pay peanuts and get peanuts. It's about Chicken and Egg.
I can see that you are working very hard here. Must be very highly paid.

The lasting you want is to believe the sls salesmen.. Do google and join forums' discussion. The only time you show up at sls is to ask price!

Fully agree. Tats why I buy from marix for vstarcam. Even if they charged more. Tats because they really test their cameras n know better than sim lim square just sell only shops.

It only works on ip cam viewer pro. But unfortunately none of the factories r keen on these anymore since there is pnp. But better as well, ease of use

Not as highly paid as you. You are working double hard.

Got my hands on IPS_Eye01, 2Mpixel camera with onvif support. Camera uses the P2PCam264 n works wif Vstarcam H app except for some inverted commands.

Setup: Not plug n play. The camera requires you to setup using their finder tool with static ip. Wifi setup is also a hassle. All must be done using webUI.

Sharpness of camera is good. Have 2 dif streaming, but mobile app loses in functionality over Vscam App which is propietary. I also noticed some lost in connectivity with the camera once a while which I can connect over lan but not over 3G.

No audio recording as well. Doesn't record to network path. Cam is heavy in weight compared to T7838WIP. PAN/TILT angle loses out to Vstarcam.

Conclusion:

Good high resolution
Poor PnP concept
Slow & limited pan/tilt function
WebUI could b better
Mobile App lacks functionality
Very soft audio

IPS-Eye02 is a 1megapixel camera. Uses P2PCam264.
Uses similar shell as foscam FI8910W. Same as IPS-Eye01, not PnP friendly.

But, it supports network path saving. Tats the plus point for this camera.

Other features is similar to Eye02 less the diff in resolution.

Anyway, now using no-ip which is free also... Thanks!

Hello. I am thinking of getting three wireless ip cameras, 1 for the living room and 2 for the rooms. The main purpose is to monitor the maid and the babies. Probably going to hook up to the NAS in the house for recording. Is there any recommendations? Seems like there are some "hardcore supporters" of EasyN and I see vstarcam being mentioned a fair bit. Unfortunately, these are not supported by the Synology NAS. I will most likely go with Dlink. Is there any installation service provider? My concern is the power cord and thinking how these cameras will tap on the power supply.
