neither..look for a turret design...look at the dahua starlight fixed turret at about 100 (Slow shipping 125 fast) or the varifocal starlight turret for 170 (fast dhl shipping)...its 2mp...the 3mp and 4mp standard cams will not produce a good night/low light image.
Appreciate the help . ill look into getting these. any preferred sellers that are recommended ?

stopping public sharing and resuming it after about an hour fixed mine. and @fenderman is correct, this will be ok until the next time.
im giving this agony another year, by then the BOSS would have forgotten we have these darn cameras and i can replace them...

I'm not Fenderman but I'll give you my 2cents worth. Go dahua. The cheap dahuas are the 4431c and 4433c both are poe and can be made wireless with a cheap wifi dongle. They are 110 degrees and work great in low light. Get a starlight if you want even better low light performance. You wont be disappointed.
@fenderman is this statement "can be made wireless with a cheap wifi dongle" accurate?

and would you concur on the DAHUA MODELS suggested?

if so id be jumping on DAHUAS right away....
ill get away with using a suggested DAHUA model if i can set-up wireless.

you had to drill a hole for power anyway...hire someone to run cable
have 3. only had to drill a hole on the garage, the other two are plugged on the external sockets.

would you suggest these"The cheap dahuas are the 4431c and 4433c " or "the dahua starlight fixed turret" ?

do not buy the cheap units...they are not firmware upgradable....the starlights have significantly better low light and night vision

No... starlight refers to the sensor...varifocal is a variable lens that will allow you to select a specific focal length within it's range...
You will not find the dahua Starlights on amazon...

Happy day. Cameras are back up. Hope I can limp along for a while with Nest until I can justify the switch to an IP cam I can connect to directly.

You dont have to justify the cost...sell your nest camera on ebay, you will have more than enough for a solid dahua camera

Thanks Looney2s,

may I ask another question to make sure I do the right choice, I need a camera with the best definition possible at night and day, I don't realy need the varifocal but I definitly need at least a FOV of 100 degrees.

I will, be using those for dog runs about 80 feet long and I need to be able to identify 2 different dog from away (same breed so that is why I need the best definition)

thanks for the help
