    Hello there,

    Seems pretty obvious, but as i can't find devices who fits my needs, i'm asking here if i searched poorly, or if i'm searching for an inexistant camera ?
    So, my needs :
    - Ip (wifi) camera, PTZ, indoor, maybe on batteries ?
    - With motion detection, which sends notifications on mail, smartphone, and send data on cloud (my cloud, not a chinese one please), via FTP, or Gdrive, or dropbox, for examples.
    - with a solution to activate / desactivate the motion detection for all of them in once, either via app, or any other easy solution.

    Seems so unrealistic ?
    Couldn't find, till there, a camera who fits all my needs (tried Yi dome cameras, and Heden cams).

    Thanks for any help, any leads ... ;)
    Good evening !
    Oliv.

    Welcome Oliv

    Forget battery operated. Only looked for wired for power products ( this includes PoE ).

    Try to only look for decent quality products.

    One good option is to look for a VMS ( like Blue Iris ) that runs on a PC and allows you greater "smarts" / CPU power and scripting cabilities. This way you can get a lot more control.

    Remember to check out the cliff notes and other notes:

    Stick with Dahua or Hikvision cams, avoid the no name cheapies.
