Looking at Foscam FI9821W and a Dropcam -- Suggestions?
« on: April 06, 2013, 09:41:48 PM »
I would like to get a camera in about the $150 price range with the following specs:

- 720p or higher resolution
- allows me to view on my home network or on my laptop remotely, or on my Android, iPhone or ipad using 4gLTE remotely
- has the ability to record to either my computer or directly onto an SD card
- has the ability to talk through my Android, iPhone, iPad or computer remotely and have the audio come out of the camera
- has a motion detector
- has night vision
- can sends alerts
- can be tilted/rotated remotely (ideally)
- can later be added to more cameras as parts of a larger camera network

I have been looking at the Foscam FI9821W (though I am reading lots of complaints, though I think a firmware update may have fixed some of the problems), Dropcam (though it doesn't record to an SD card and does not rotate)

Anyone have any thoughts on the Foscam or Dropcam? Any suggestions for other devices to look at? I am willing to spend more if necessary.
