- Amcrest 1080p IP Webcam for $65
BuyDig.com is selling an Amcrest IP2M-841B Wired & Wireless Wall-Mountable Webcam for $65 with free shipping.
Most stores sell it for at least $90.
We have two of the white versions of this camera, and love its features:
Remote control pan/tilt through your web browser and smartphone, so you can look around the room from wherever you are.
Remote speaker and microphone, so you can listen and talk to your baby or pet while out of the room.
The video quality is very good, even at night.
We use our Amcrest cameras for home security.
Can record video onto a MicroSD memory card (sold separately), or upload screenshots and video to an FTP server.
Access your camera from anywhere by configuring your home router to "port forward" a port to the camera's IP address.
If you don't know how to do this, contact your Internet service provider.
The security risk is minor if you use a long password of random characters, only open the camera's video port.
If you don't feel comfortable opening a port on your home firewall, perhaps look at Netgear Arlo, Nest, or other devices which provide access through their own cloud systems (and could incur a fee to do so).
The software's menu-driven interface is built-in to the camera and accessible via web browser.
It is a bit less intuitive than most other Internet/IP webcams, but works fine.
Give yourself an hour or two, as their poor documentation can add some setup time.
Connect the camera to your switch/router with an ethernet cable for the best possible video quality, or use the camera's built-in Wifi.
If you want the white version, Newegg is selling the White Amcrest IP2M-841W for $90 and includes a free 32GB MicroSD memory card today.
The white version is rarely discounted below $90.
