Why mess with all that hard wiring and wi-fi connections. Go buy an Arlo Go camera.It works like a cell phone. You can just pick it up and take it anywhere without having to set up a wi-fi connection. You just download the Arlo app to turn the camera on & off. It has a motion detector that can be turned on or off. You can talk to your pet through the camera. The best thing is it can be used at home, your car or anywhere. They are about $400 but well worth it. They also have a built in alarm system with a siren. All the features can be turned on or off through the app and their customer service is fantastic.

We use the Amazon Cloud Cam at home and in the fiver. It was also our camera of choice when we had the motorhome. We have a Verizon hotspot and take it with us whenever we leave home. It uses very little data and we have not ran into any areas yet that we don't have a signal even though I am sure there is some spots somewhere. It has video and audio capabilities. The cloud cam coupled with our temp stick gives us all the comfort we need when we leave our dogs.

A continuously streaming video uses about 562MB of data/hour if you stream at 480p resolution (standard definition). That means that you would use 1 gig of your data allowance if you take a 2 hour trip. Not an issue if you have unlimited data but most people have limited data usage with their monthly cell phone/wifi contract.

do the nest cams b’cast continually to the net or only when connected to the app? if continuous that would certainly monopolize any CG’s wifi system.

if the OP has a pair of iphones he could establish a facetime connection between the two and then leave one with the pooch.


They broadcast continually to the Nest cloud in either a one week continuous loop, or a month long loop depending on your preference. But yes, it would tax a campgrounds wifi. You open the app and you can look back over days, weeks etc, and can also save snipped clips in the app indefinately.

Check out the Reolink C1 cam also. It has a built-in mic and speaker which allows you to communicate.

We seem to be on the same hunt here and I would like to have your suggestions for a. Heap DIY home surveillance system.
Requirements are simple. I need 2 wired and 4 wireless ip cameras preferably with night vision, a dvr, ability to view multiple cameras simultaneously and be able to access it remotely. Found some info online on https://www.techprohomes.com/best-poe-se........system-keep-your-home-and-business-safe/ but real life experience is very important for me.
