like to get outdoor webcam
« on: May 06, 2018, 05:48:44 PM »
Looking to buy a webcam. I like the Foscam F19900 but look at their website and support is by email. Any other suggestions as an alterative webcam.

Hi,

If you using the Foscam to display an image on a web page, you will need a server side script to enable this, (I can post up the one I use if that helps) and its a bit of a faff to setup, image and reliability are good.

My other camera which is excellent is a Hikvision, this would be my preferred choice and can ftp directly to be published on a web page.

Plenty of advice on both camera types in the forum.

PWS - ICAMBRID16

Hi,

Would like to keep it under $125 if possible.
 
I was also looking at TRENDnet Indoor/Outdoor 1.3 Megapixel HD  and the Wansview Outdoor 1080P WiFi Wireless.
