cheapest IP camera

Post by albertomarrod » Monday 22 May 2017 5:56

Hi guys, I have been checking the cameras in the wiki but as it´s gonna be my first IP camera I wouldn´t like to spend too much money so the thing is...
What´s the cheapest IP camera which I can buy? And with WiFi?

Thank you in advance

If you have spare smartphone laying around, just download and install: https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... pas.webcam
In Domoticz use "shot.jpg" as image URL in settings window

My brother bought three different cheap Chinese IP cams from Aliexpress. They were all around 20-30 USD. Working well but I had no luck to use them with Domoticz. Mean while two of them are already dead. On the other side almost any of better named IP cam I tried worked. Check supported IP cams in wiki and for ca. 40-50USD you can sure buy some D-link or TP-link cam
