Surveillance cameras from Alixpress

Post by Nilborg20 » Tue May 14, 2019 7:56 pm

Hello,

Do you know any good and cheap surveillance cameras that are compatible with QNAP from Aliexpress?

I have searched on Google, but i can only find some very old posts. But the old links does not work anymore. And maybe there is something new and better.

Im planning on have a camera outdoors to cover my frontdoor from a tree 6-10 meters away.

Does anybody have som experince with cheap cams?

i'd suggest doing a search "ip cam 2019 budget" on youtube and google. and from there check the reviews for item. double verify what others are saying about it (not the amazon reviews, those tend to be fake these days. reddit might be ok or an official review site that isn't biased, gamers nexus is decent)

then cross check against compatibility list

How cheap? The genuine international version Hikvisions are usually half the price from Ali Express compared to local dealer and all have been good for me

I was thinking about £20-25. Right now it is "just for fun and gadgets".

But im willing to pay a bit more, if i have to.

The camera needs to have wifi.
