Camera recommendations? Clueless person here.

Postby InFloodZone » Thu Feb 25, 2016 10:45 am

I'm a total nitwit when it comes to DIY security cameras and have never attempted such a feat before. I need an outdoor camera easy to set up. My requirements are:

1) weatherproof in a hot, harsh (salt) coastal environment;
2) live stream from an android phone - I do NOT need recording on a hard drive or sound;
3) preferred wireless but not absolutely necessary (will be <50' from my router);
4) easy install (like plug and play);
5) automatically revives itself after frequent internet and/or power loss; and
6) no monthly subscriptions.

I've installed a Canary with success, but need something heavy-duty for the outdoor situation. Thank you so very much for any and all recommendations.

Hello InFloodZone,
I would recommend you go with Amcrest HDSeries Outdoor 720P or 1080P WiFi Wireless IP Security Bullet Camera. The 1080 P gives a better video quality but the 720P itself is good enough for surveillance purposes. Both these models qualifies the requirements you have mentioned and they are wifi cameras.
The product is available in Amazon. You can view them on the link below.
