    I didn't think this would be that hard but i'm dying from information overload, I've been looking for over three days and I'm more knowledgable but I still can't really find what I'm looking for

    I was after a
    outdoor
    motorized pan and tilt
    night vision
    built in IR
    ONVIF
    POE
    Compatible with QNAP SS

    It doesn't seem like alot to ask for but finding anything under £150 ( $200 170 Euro ) hasn't been possible.

    I quite liked the look of the Dahau SD22204T-GN but it doesn't have IR built in and also I liked the Dahau SD29204T as that does have IR but that isn't an outdoor cam.

    But I'm starting to thing Dahau just doesn't sell what i'm after so can anyone recommend a good Hikvision camera ?

    Many thanks

    You are not going to find a PTZ camera for less than $200 from Dahua or Hik. You can find something like Huisun which if you research this forum is not reliable. You get what you pay for.

    If you want a camera to play with, buy junk. If you want a security camera, buy something like Dahua or Hik or the numerous brands they OEM.

    I’ve found this one, it doesnt have built in IR but i can easily get an IR floodlight instead.

    What do you guys think of it ?

    I have the 22204TNI version and let me tell you, with any exterior lighting you don't need ir with this camera. If the area it's going to be covering is pitch black, add some white light to it and its golden.

    How far out are you recording?

    This is the mini-dome with IR that @fenderman was talking about. I have it for my front porch and really like it:

    I have this camera as well. It is my first outdoor IP camera and I am running Blue Iris on it. It is working pretty well for my needs: overlooks the driveway. My cameras before were Y-Cams I used as baby monitors 8 years ago.
