Have had it at various places over the last few nights and I can't complain. Unbox was easy / Setup was easy / RTSP was easy (just testing to VLC)

Dr Z also likes it :

Will point it out into the garden tonight to test the IR

Here's some sample shots I just screenshotted from VLC

Both my garden lights off


Both my garden lights on


Both my garden lights as well as patio lights (where camera is placed) on. The camera disabled IR on this last shot due to sufficient lighting


The big white bucket past the tabletennis table is about 10m away... and then further in the distance to the left is a smaller white bucket that's about 20m away. The edge of my boundary wall that's somewhat visible is 30m away.

So is this just a wifi camera, or is there something special about it?
