    That's impressive. Can you zoom with it and if so how clear is the image as you get farther out?

    If you get a chance during the day can you zoom in on something across the channel and get a screenshot?

    TIA

    Pretty slick set up. So all you need is a 120vac outlet and a wifi connection right?

    That is so cool. I can't believe the pricing on these things!!

    Did it require a subscription service?

    According to what I just read about the camera, it has a power adapter that needs to be plugged into 120vac. It has a battery back up for a brief period. It's either wifi or SD card. For wifi it will connect to a hot spot on a cellphone etc.

    Makes me wonder why the marina's would not set these up all over the place if they are so cheap.

    There are the ones linked in the OP, Foscam, Wyze, etc. Many to choose from with different feature levels.

    I use Wyze on the boat, I have a MicroSD card plugged in them and get 24/7 recording for up to 14 days. I can log in via the app on my cell phone at any time, get motion notifications and can do playback all from my cell phone.

    Two cameras setup on the boat for under $100...chump change in the grand scheme of things. Spend a few bucks and see what works best for your setup.

    I have a canary onboard that I’d say is just ok, I need to check these out

    I’d like to stick one in the bilge too, something comforting about being able to make sure it’s dry down there once in a while

    Liability.

    The cameras would record when someone bring’s their girlfriend, and the wife’s divorce attorneys’ would subpoena the Marina owners.
    That’s what my marina owner tells me anyway.

    Yes it requires power, no subscription, app for apple or android. This is mounted on a light pole where I installed an outlet to plug it into.
