Outdoor mini camera compatible with Blue Iris

Post by michin »

Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced outdoor mini camera that is compatible with Blue Iris? Live in Canada so must be able to endure the cold (and rain).

I would mount against the wall under an eave. Thank you.

Can use AC power but needs to be wi-fi.

About this small? I'm open to other possibilities if this isn't an option.

Not at the moment. Have you seen any you like ? We can have a look at them to try to figure out if they will work with BI5.

How small is 'mini'?

Wi-Fi? PoE? AC power handy?

TP-link offers a few options that are ONVIF compliant, will fire right up with Blue Iris and don't require cloud support from 'home'.

These are pretty cool if you have power handy. The C110 is amazing for the money if they would be in a protected area. Your environmental spec requirements may elevate your expense and narrow your choices considerably if they're extreme, though. That said, most cameras would rather be cold than hot. 'Wet' is what they don't like if they're not rated for it. Even if they are, their connectors aren't and need to be weatherproofed accordingly.

But check these out. Quite a bit of bang for the buck.

Thank you for the suggestion. That isn't as small as I was thinking but it could still work and as you said the price is nice.
