QUESTION: From your travels and expertise, do you have a recommendation for an outdoor IP security camera? I was looking at Trivision NC336PW and Phylink Bullet Pro. I have my own NAS and want app/text notification for motion. Happy Easter! He is RIsen!! Thanks, Mark ANSWER: 1st motion outdoors is normally a pain…too much uncontrolled motion so you will likely get too many notifications so I wouldn’t recommend. Video analytics is getting better but not there yet for consumer grade devices. Recording motion is fine. Also, I generally try to wire cameras vs Wi-Fi when practical. Since they take power it is often almost as easy to run data and power at same time. But if hard to get wire there and power is close and you have a solid Wi-Fi signal and bandwidth, the wireless is viable but can be finicky. I don’t have experience with either of those cameras but they don’t look bad at a glance. As standard, we use a nvr / dvr for recording and remote view but pretty sure there is recent software to pull that camera in but would check that. If you want to explore are more comprehensive, professional solution…do tell. I hope this helps and let me know how the project goes if you do it. Happy Easter!Yours for greater safety,
Kirk
