IP Camera Help
Posted 25 June 2012 - 08:08 PM
I am pretty new to IP cameras. Right now my needs are simple. I just need a reliable IP camera that I can easily embed the video stream in a web page.
I would like tilt/pan features as well. For the embedding part, I only need a video stream and not full control over the camera.

If it fits in your price range, I've been pretty happy with Panasonic cameras I've tried.

I am a software developer and I am creating a control panel for my house and want the camera embedded in the page next to my controls.

My problem is I only have a single cat5E run to the location. I think the POE IP camera is the right solution, but I have never used one before so I am not sure.
I would prefer something with as high a resolution as I can get, but I don't want to spend a ton of $$.
I will be using it with a system that consists of an Elk M1 and an ISY99, so if there are brands that work better with those, that would be best. I would prefer it work with an iOS app too, like Mobilinc.
So, what would you recommend? I have looked at the Foscam FI8905E and the Ubiquiti Aircam. Night vision is not critical but would be a bonus.
My goal is something that will enable me to get screen grabs sent to my phone when motion is detected or the doorbell is pressed. Also, want to have it automatically record some video to a server when motion detected.
thanks for any input.

The second two pictures are the Aircam. One with the stock 4.0 mm lens and the other with a 2.5mm lens. I have two of these that have weathered OK this past year. One did well with 70 MPH winds this past summer. I am testing a 3.6mm lens also with the Aircam and like the 2.5mm view better.
I am migrating all of the analog cameras to IP cameras. I am modding the Optex cameras with IP / analog camera boards which will be POE.
Here I am using ZoneMinder (http://zoneminder.com). The remote functions utilize xAP and now X10 which I have configurd with my HAI OPII panel. The OPII is connected to the Optex outdoor PIR which triggers (among other stuff) the ZM DVR recordings. I just recently integrated the analog / IP cameras into the HAI touch screen stuff. The HS touchscreens though can view recordings/events stored on the NAS.
Attached are some recent frame snapshots.

How much horsepower do you have in your computer running ZoneMinder (http://zoneminder.com) and how many cameras is it controlling?
