I am looking for a specific type of doorbell camera, and I have not been able to find one that meets my requirements, which are:
  1. Draws power from existing doorbell wiring / does not require any additional wiring
  2. Has a button which, when pressed, will ring the existing doorbell
  3. Connects via Wi-Fi
  4. Will (continuously) send video via RTSP (or HTTP or similar standard protocols)
It would also be nice if the camera were relatively inexpensive.

These are the only features I need, but I have not been able to find a camera which has all four/five of them.

For example, the Ring Video Doorbell Pro supports items 1-3 but (as far as I can tell), you cannot connect to it and pull a video stream via RTSP/HTTP/etc. At $250, it's not exactly inexpensive, but the price would probably be OK if it supported #4, which it does not.

Do any of you know of any cameras that have all four of these features? If you do, I would be really glad to hear about them.

See the threads discussing the Hikvision doorbell... It has his issues though and is not perfect... The newly-released dahua db11 might also be suitable for you but it has not been tested or reviewed here yet.

Same requirements here. Did you ever discover any candidates beyond those mentioned in the thread?
