Im really like the results from this nest Nest cam. The near focus looks perfect. Not liking the $200 price tag, but rhe live stream is nice and IQ looks perfect


Does anyone know an a outdoor BI compatible POE cam with near focus like this?

At least Dahua lists a "close focus distance" spec (Hik doesn't), for most cams it's 0.6-1 meter.
The varifocal cameras list 0.2-0.3m as the close focus distance which is pretty close (8-12 inches).

You could probably open a camera with a fixed lens and adjust the focus a little.
