I have some old 12V Panasonic BB-HCM series pan/tilt cameras that are starting to get flaky and i am looking for a good POE replacement model. I probably can live without the pan and tilt but I am concerned about the IR performance. The Panasonics have no IR but do super low light (with some video noise).
I have tried bullet cameras from Foscam and Amcrest and when they are in night mode (IR on) they will sometimes flicker or go black for a second every once in a while. I don't know if this is an artifact from hovering around the transition point between normal and IR mode or if it is something to do with the increased POE draw when the IR LEDs are on? In any case i want to find a model that does not do this.
It would also be a bonus if besides working with Blue Iris they were also enabled to work with Alexa so I could view them from an Echo Show on command.
Any suggestions for what models I should be looking at?
Anybody tried one of these?:
