    Hello

    I am looking to buy two IP cameras for the outside of my home and need advice on what's best to buy.
    One will be for the front garden and another for the rear alley/access way to the home.

    I need them to be as discreet/covert as possible therefore something small in size I can hide and IR illumination that isn't visible to anyone approaching (940nm?) either on the camera or separate illuminator(s).

    I do not need PTZ.

    The front garden camera needs something in the region of 100 degree viewing angle while the rear alley is a narrow view. Both need to monitor a distance up to approx 20 metres.

    It needs to cope with UK weather.

    I would prefer to transmit the signal via a LAN cable and use Power over Ethernet, but if I had to run a separate line for power then I can work with that. I don't think wireless is going to be reliable as the signal isn't fantastic outside.

    The intention is to live view the video feeds on occasions (eg if I happen hear something suspicious outside) but also have my NAS record on movement.

    I'm also on a tight budget :/

    Any recommendations for IP cameras I can get in the UK to meet my needs?

    Thank you

    Hi thanks very much for the recommendation.
    I had a look at the reviews, it looks really good and reasonably priced.
    I had one question...
    In night mode, do the IR leds give off a red light or are they invisible? (Would you happen to know the wavelength)
    Thanks
