Supported Doorbell Cameras

Post by Gibby » Mon Jul 01, 2019 5:26 pm

Thought I saw a list on the old forums. Anyone have that list by chance? I am really hating my Ring Pro.

I am looking for a list and/or recommendations myself. The HikVision appears to be ONVIF compatible. Amazon reviews are mixed, but in fairness nearly all their IP camera reviews are in the tank, so a grain of salt may go with the territory.

I think it was the Doorbird camera that was mentioned here before the big forum crash. A bit large for most houses :?:

Yes, tell us more :idea:

After one of my neighbours had his Ring doorbell ripped from his wall, I am beginning to think that a standard doorbell and a small camera may be a less expensive, and less stolen method. Clearly the thieves go around looking for the standard £200+ devices, and take them.
I did have a look at door spyhole cameras, but most of them are toys. The one that I liked was a cheap £20 analogue spyhole camera - I can connect that directly to BI via the Piccolo Pro card, and I think the lower resolution wouldn't be a problem for identifying people standing at the door (Since the other cameras in BI already cover the other angles). Add to that that there is no visible "as seen on TV" camera or expensive doorbell to steal, and it keeps getting better and better. Hmmm :geek:

I just spotted an article comparing the Nest and Ring doorbells, and it claimed that burglars would be scared away by the presence of this visible deterrent. Oh dear. I already have evidence that this thinking is flawed :lol:
