    Default Wifi camera to watch my room?

    Hi,
    I need a cheap wifi camera to record the going-on's in my room. There's so many out there. recommendations very welcome. Battery powered would be good but not essential. Something that'll record to sd card or cloud.

    Have a look on Aliexpress. A brand I recommend is Hiseeu, we got a PoE system from them, thats got a complete recorder, cameras etc, took about a week from ordering to receiving, it works great.

    Have a look through the store: https://hiseeu.aliexpress.com/store

    Battery powered will cost more.

    Select Ship From China.

    SOME Other suppliers are rubbish and the cams are rubbish, AND take ages to get anything.

    Since its indoor, just a possible suggestion. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3239..._7201623.pic_2

    If you just want a basic camera you can buy locally these work really well https://www.pbtech.co.nz/product/CCT...ity-Camera-108.
    I have one in my lounge and I can remotely access it from my phone and pan and tilt the camera around and it also does two way audio, Records to SD card. The downside is someone could just steal the card out of it, or the whole camera. But it actually can store to a netwrk drive if you want to for security.

    You can also get them a lot cheaper off Aliexpress or E-bay etc if you don't mind buying from overseas and waiting.

    Most of the cams also allow you to look in on them from anywhere.

    When in Vanuatu a couple of weeks back I could easily look at any of them live feeds I have from my phone.

    Once I got a whole lot of alerts, looked and it was only some kids coming onto the property to collect a soccer ball they were playing with. It was also good to be able to go back and look at the recordings via remote to actually check the post had dropped off a packet that was said to be delivered.Then contacted the neighbour to go and get it out the letter box.
