Outdoor IP Camera with Audio for BI5

I am looking for recommendations for an outdoor IP camera which includes one-way audio that is fully compatible with BI5. I currently have an Amcrest IP4M-1026E camera recording movement at a birdfeeder, and this has worked out very well but I would like to start recording audio as well. I'm looking for a camera where the audio is transmitted over the network cable and does not require a separate audio cable. I have looked at the Reolink RLC-410 and RLC-511, but I have read about audio quality issues on Amazon and also saw some issues with BI. Thanks in advance for your assistance.

I use the Reolink cameras. If you use the bullet RLC-410 or dome cameras, be sure you get the 5mp cameras. The sound quality is much better than with the 4mp. I changed my 4mp cameras for 5mp. Much happier with the sound.

I am happy with the 5mp cameras.

Home security is basic need for every home. Today many top ranking companies offers different security appliances for multiple functions. I use Ring outdoor IP security camera over 6 years at my home. I am satisfied with its working. It easy to use, install and access on your smartphone. It fills all of your security needs.

Hi sabiraslam,

That sounds like an advertisement. I wouldn't call it a competing product though.

This is a Blue Iris CCTV software user forum, and the members here like to know technical details. Tell us about your Ring cameras. Resolution ? Wired or wireless ? How long does it keep recordings for ? How much does it cost per month ? Does the cost scale up if you add more cameras ? Without that information, Ring looks like a toy - so convince me.

I have multiple of these which work great with BI and have great night vision and have zoom capabilities.

That's odd, my Dahua (See sig. below, also from Andy at Empiretech) does have audio. Very good audio. I know they did a cheaper version of mine without audio, so you will need to check model numbers.
