Wireless IP Security Cameras

OK.... Need to see what's going on at the boat when I'm away. Anyone using remote video on their boats?

Re: Wireless IP Security Cameras

I have been using an ASTEK Mole camera for a year. I use it wired, but it is also wireless. Probably the best feature is the proxy service Yoics.com that you can use to connect to the camera. I didn't think I would like it, but it works well.

So, the boat radio connects to the Internet, while the internal AP can support this camera (I use it wired though for PoE), and it doesn't matter which type of data connection the boat has. The camera is always accessed through the proxy service. I use a combination of cellular data and wifi to connect the boat network to shore.

I set the view on the camera, then enable a motion detection window, and the camera emails a snapshot and onboard SD card records video when something passes through that zone. It's PTZ and has IR illumination.

Not that it matters, but I found it at Costco. When underway, I just pull the plug. It is not supported through my NavNet3D like the AXIS cameras, but those are not "cloud" enabled, that I know of, and do cost more. Although, I am only using the camera for security, and not watching a deck or the engine room.

I guess that with some extra configuration, you may be able to connect it directly, as a client, to a free WiFi hotspot in the harbor. I would really consider how open it might be to curious hacks, and take measures.

Re: Wireless IP Security Cameras

You might use a lot of bandwidth if you leave it on.

Best one I've seen for the job I bought for $120 at Officeworks in Australia. It has a built in web server and it's motion activated, so what you do is tell it to send you snippets say 5 seconds before and 5 seconds after the movement. It's stand-alone and doesn't have to record to a laptop or disk, as it emails you. It's wireless or wired, so must be able to connect to a network.

For example if someone burns down your boat, it will have already sent a video to your email or uploaded it to a website. There are also remote controlled models of this camera so you can view it from your iPhone.
