  • Cheap PTZ camera

    posted by kfchow on 08/05/2013

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    This is actually a Foscam FI-8908W camera. It is bang for buck for a PTZ camera (well technically no zoom so PT). It has M-Jpeg output so it is easily integrated into various applications and control systems.

    Cons:

    Low Resolution.

    Mounting bracket is this swivel piece of **.Would be better if you could mount the base directly to the ceiling.

    If integrating it into a system the protocol is a bit wierd. Has commands to start moving in the direction (up, down, left, right) and requires a stop command as well.

    OtherThoughts:

    Requires firmware update to get preset functionality.

    Integrated it into my Control4 system and am extremely happy with the solution.

    Bottomline:

    Its a cheap pan tilt camera. Go buy one.
