    Need an indoor wifi Camera to work with Blue Iris

    Search ebay.co.uk for FDT cameras. It's Amcrest's 'European' trade name. Avoid the older 720P cameras and get the 1080P for about 50 GBP, or a refurb/return for about 35 GBP.

    Home Renovation Delayed a Year (!), Are My Camera Choices Still Relavant?

    There are newer and higher-resolution cameras available, but both the 4231 fixed-focus and 5231 varifocal Starlight models are still QUITE good cameras. Picture quality is excellent, and night vision is incredible.

    Are my cameras corrupted?

    Be absolutely certain uPnP is DISABLED on any networking equipment you have, especially your main router. If you're port-forwarding through NAT to any of these cameras, turn that off, as well.

    Cameras for small business

    You can save a TON of $$$ by selecting fewer and much better cameras. Budget $130-to-$150 per camera for up to six outdoor turret cameras. Then about $100 each for Hikvision or Dahua cube cameras indoors. Pick four to six locations inside. Add another $350-to-$500 for a used late model...

    I just received the 4MP UHD Amcrest IP4M-1051B. For $90 USD, the picture quality on this Amcrest rebrand of a Dahua camera is spectacular. Save $8 USD and buy the refurb.

    Hikvision 8 MP 'cube' camera DS-2CD2483G0-IW

    I used blue painters masking tape to cover all the delicate spots on mine. Had to go back with a cotton swab to touch up the missed spots.

    iOS remote monitoring for a Dahua DH-SD29204T-GN?

    If you were using Blue Iris at home to record the camera, there's a great iOS app for BlueIris.

    Hikvision 8 MP 'cube' camera DS-2CD2483G0-IW

    Nice job! I did this with the original Annke I61DR cube camera, but that old 2 MP camera has seen a lot of abuse and the paint tended to scratch/flake off. How's yours holding up?

    Why is it so hard to find affordable in-wall outdoor POE cams?

    I've been searching for other cameras, and if you end up going the DIY route, the XMeye/XiaoMai/TOP-201 Hi3516 cameras might be a less expensive choice. You can buy PoE modules that bolt/stack onto the camera board. Or take a $25 Wyze wifi cube camera and tuck the USB power supply inside the...

    Red hue on edge of image?

    I'd return it under warranty and explicitly include a printed photo of the image posted here. Tell them the IR filter is defective, causing image degradation.

    Camera connection issues at power source

    I agree with @mikeynags there should be some kind of gasket between the box and the box faceplate.

    Red hue on edge of image?

    It could be the IR filter is not 100% retracted or deployed, or the IR filter (actually a thin plastic film) is defective. How old is the camera?

    Why is it so hard to find affordable in-wall outdoor POE cams?

    I think you may save a few millimeters by shucking the plastic case from the camera, but yeah, after saying it, thought maybe a two-gang box would work better with the camera positioned sideways.

    Why is it so hard to find affordable in-wall outdoor POE cams?

    Sounds like a good opportunity to shuck a Hikvision or Dahua 'cube' camera and install the guts into a one-gang box with a 3d-printed faceplate.

    Internal camera recommendation

    Best bets indoors are Hikvision 'cube' cameras and the Dahua equivalent 'cube' camera. IPC-K35 is the Dahua model number. Amcrest (branded as FDT) have a 1080P pan-tilt camera.
