I’m struggling to select the best outdoor camera to pair with Angelcam service that would allow my grandpa and other friends and family to see the view from my house. It’s a big view of the WI river valley and great for sunsets and weather patterns including approaching storms. I’d like to keep the purchase less than ~$400 but not sure if possible. I tried a 4K Webcam (Logitech C922 pro) and it was whitewashed and very poor quality. Thanks
Hi Andrew_Stokes, I’ve been using the StarDot Megapixel for many years now at Webcam | Quillayute River Resort with great success and reliability, but it costs significantly more than $400.
consider also Axis M2025-LE for these reasons:
- Price about $300
- Great video quality even in tough conditions and during low light
- It’s an Angelcam-ready camera (all AXIS models are) so it can be connected to Angelcam easily, securely, and reliably without port-forwarding or without AngelBox or its alternatives. Here is how to do so: How to make Axis camera Angelcam-powered | Angelcam Help Center
- Five years warranty
- Very efficient video compression - based on camera settings you will get better video quality with the same bitrate than other cameras or the same video quality with about 50% bitrate only. Details.
