Hi, I’m running Blue Iris with 3 cameras (2 fixed PoE external and one internal). I need an additional one to give coverage for the rear of my house, plus I’d like something to help me spot wildlife (mostly nocturnal - foxes & badgers) in our small paddock next to the house. I’m wondering about one PTZ camera to do both. I could mount it on the rear wall of our house and it would have a view of both areas. I’m thinking it would need to have a “patrol” mode where it scans areas as it wouldn’t be able to see everywhere at once. My first question is, how does a “patrol” mode work with Blue Iris motion detection? Is there some way for Blue Iris to know that the image is changing because the camera is turning and be able to differentiate this from actual motion in the image? The HikVision 24x PTZ in this post looks like it would work well for me - Automated Home 2.0 – #04 Awesome PTZ CCTV Camera to Watch Our Self Build Remotely (2MP 25x zoom, DS-2DE4225IW-DE) It’s not cheap though! Is it considered good quality/value? I’m interested to know if people would recommend any other alternatives (preferably cheaper) with similar functionality. We’re in a bungalow so it’s going to be within reach of any burglars (don’t think a pole will be acceptable), and I’d be gutted if they smashed it, so if there was a camera that had better protection, that would be even better. Thanks in advance for any thoughts.
