IP camera suggestions, please
I would like an inexpensive IP camera that can:
- Stream live video to a web browser, VLC player, or ONVIF player
- Save video locally to micro SD card or to an FTP server (and NOT to a company's cloud service)
The Foscam X1 seems to allow this. The user manual describes using their Windows software to configure the camera's FTP connection, but I'm not sure whether that Windows PC needs to be running 24/7 (i.e., acting as a middle-man, saving the stream to the FTP server). Looking on Amazon, the Yi, Wyze, and Littlelf cameras have attractive prices, but I don't know if they have the features I want.
I'd appreciate feedback on these cameras, or suggestions on other cameras that meet my criteria. Thanks
