Cheapest PoE Camera with free driver

Recommended Posts

I have a few locations in my home that do not justify putting hikvision in, namely my unfinished and shared laundry room and my 3rd floor shared (tenants) common space. I like just enough clarity to determine if either space is occupied. 

 

All thoughts and comments are appreciated.

I think Mitch is right. Amcrest may be the cheapest PTZ camera that offers integration. PM him to discuss driver costs and installation.

Excellent. Much appreciated.

Im not sure if he sells the cameras, but I think you can find some good deals on refurbished ones on ebay/amazon

$79 Unifi Flex G3 Camera.  Impressive little camera for the money and works with the generic IP driver for C4.

Really? I thought it was only possible via blue iris.
Thanks for the info!

Wondering if you could use those with a Hik nvr

I have my unifi cameras with the generic ip driver and they work fine.  I haven't tried the flex camera but its the same Unifi interface so assuming it works the same.

I dont think you can use another brand NVR but not 100%.   Unifi just came out with a new NVR for $200 that also has the Unifi controller software built in.  I just installed it in a second home and its slick.
