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.
