Anyone here with some experience and good suggestion? I'd like to monitor my front parking/front door but I am not able to do so outside as my strata will not let us install a camera on the side of the building. STUPID I know.

I have, with a little googling, discovered that IR will not pentrate windows so I'm left wondering how I am to accomplish outside security.

I'd like to put one inside on the main floor too but I have no idea which one I should be looking at. The dlink ones seem ok except the software is a major pain in the ass apparently.

Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks. :thumb:

Can you install through an attic and hang on the eaves? Something like this but obviously a real camera? That way it's not on a wall. :)

as far as which brand, I can't say. I had an installer put some Honeywell units in and they are alright but it's not like you are going to be able to pull a license plate off the image or anything like you see on TV cop shows.

I tried a couple of the wireless trendnet units. Neither works wirelessly for any longer than a day. After that one of them bricked.
