So… I finally purchased an Ip Camera, courtesy of the cheapest eBay listing I could find.

It’s a Foscam FI9818W. Pan and Tilt, wired and wireless networking, 2 way audio and Infared illumination. Pretty slick for $45. If only it had relay outputs.


So I plugged it in and got it talking to my network. Here it is looking at the wall.


 I also got it working with the Foscam App for iOS. 2-way audio built in!



Firmware is a bit old… Lets update that.

It also has motion detection and can automatically email photos or upload them to an FTP server.

I set it to email me a few snapshots when it detects motion outside of the regular business day.
