Hello all,

First time buying IP cams and need a bit of help here.

If I'm going for the Sineoji cams and also using MyRepublic, do I need to get static IP to view the cam from outside of my home network?

Appreciate the help!

Dean,
please PM me when u see this!

I am on My Republic and am using a sineoji PT597V. No static ip address is needed, I can view from my workplace or using my phone's data plan.

Any users of Foscam C1 camera and Asustor here?

I’m keen on getting an Asustor NAS because it offers 4 free camera license, double compared to Synology’s 2 only. However It seems a the support list from Asustor is pathetically short. And not much information is available in their user forums either.

Any users of these two products? Can Asustor record the videos from this C1 camera? Any feedback/comment is welcome. Thank you!
I am not using C1 but I am using Foscam FI9826P.

I saved all the alarm videos on the SD and alarm screenshots on my FTP harddisk drive attached to my router.

Everything is good. The camera can capture all the alarms perfectly.

Mike, what is the effective distance for motion detection of Foscam? VStarcam was around 3metres when I was using it.

Thumbs up for Dean from Sineoji. Saw and diligently read through most of the post from most of your and call up Dean to enquire. Purchase 2 IP cameras on the website of Sineoji on 2 Aug'16 & supposedly able to install it the next day but due to some incidents, it was postponed to yesterday. He came on the time as stated by him. Really goods service from him and he also helps me to pair my extender which I bought about 1 year plus back from the IT Fair. He not only fix my IP cameras but also my house wifi too. Thanks a lot Dean!

Oh forgotten to add, my mum is very happy with the cameras as it is very clear & sharp for us.

Hi guys, im trying to configure my Sineoji to work on Tinycam monitor app.

My cameras are setup like this. I have 2 routers in my house.

Group 1: Connected to Router 1 (Router 1 IP is 192.168.1.1)
Group 2: Connected to Router 2 (Router 2 IP is 192.168.2.1)

As you can see, the 2 routers are on separate network, cannot see each other.

I configured and portforwarded everything but i can only see the Camera's in Group 1. Group 2 cameras not showing. Are there any other settings i need to do?

Thank you in advance

Now the xiaoyi is officially available in Singapore with local office! 720P with 110 degress wide angle is just $69.

home camera 2, price is $179, a bit steep but at 130 degree, 1080P. Placed nicely and you will no longer need to pan tilt.

Set up is very easy, scan the qr code in your phone to the camera to setup wifi, for mounting, just use 3M tape to secure unit to wall, buy trunking around $2 per piece, and buy 3m fast charge cables at any mobile phone or computer stores.

Cheapest home surveillance camera now on the market with many features.

Read more at their website. yitechnology.com.sg, last time we all worry about no support, etc. Now officially here liao.

You will configure your Router 2 as an access point so that your group 2 cameras will be assigned a dynamic IP from Router 1. As your Router 1 has already been setup with port forwarding, then it should work on tinycam. Do not forget to add the ip addresses of the cameras of group 2 that has been assigned with the new dynamic ip address in the port forwarding after your configure router 2 as an access point.

Agree, tats why my comment that price is steep. But still cheaper over major brands. For those with budget, 720P with 110 angle of view is a steal at $69. There is a thread which an owner posted sample picture. Very good images. It's almost double the price of what's at taobao, but we get local warranty and support

i'm looking for an IP Camera for my music/dance studio. Intend to put about 3 in the place to monitor individual studios and reception area. Here are my requirements:

1. HD Footage
2. Ability to record/store footages for up to 14 days
3. Comes with installation to help mount on my ceilings/walls.

I've been reading the forums and have seen brands such as Vstar, Xiaomi and Sineoji popping up. Any recommendations and good deals? Don't need anything too pro.

If on budget, just get xiaoyi 720P with 110 viewing angle. $69 is cheap per camera. You can use Microsd card to record, I will skip vstarcam cos of the number of rising complains we see here.

Installation wise just DIY with 3M tape. Nothing difficult, hardware store got sell double-wides tape trunking (small) to conceal. Micro USB 2 or 3metre easily buy online can

You should not consider only the price but the following:

1) Local technical support/aftersales service must be readily available
2) Reliability - high connection rate for online viewing
3) Free installation and troubleshooting
4) Safety mark (AC adapter)
5) Locally-based server
6) Company profile

Hope you can make a wise choice.
