    Here is a comparison from the APEX MJPG and the Full Resolution stream through software.

    I wish there was a 10-12x optical zoom camera in 1080p

    Look up the camera from Axis. We used some to record user testing. A dome camera placed in the corner 20 ft away can zoom in and get perfect tracking of eye ball movement and facial reaction. Cost about 2k a piece though.


    @yellojello , I would never open my network port for those camera. I prefer Nest style of solution where video is proxied through their server and you can remain protected.

    I don't know much about hacking, but if a port was open and forwarded to a certain device, is the whole network open to attack? or just the device? Could they only hack if they knew the address and port, or are there crawlers out there searching every port?

    The weak link is the security on those camera. They usually have a weak back end Linux and weak user password setup by default

    One trick is to have two routers.
    One router for your home network. Tightly closed as normal.
    One for the cameras (and guests). Port-forward, but ONLY that port, so restrict pretty much everything else.
    Reduces the chances of getting to the camera, and makes sure your main home network is safe.
    Cheap if you occasionally upgrade your router and save the old one.

    I put junk IOT devices on different VLAN naturally. But I simply don't want a botnet camera clogging up my network.

    Well,I guess there are only two solutions:
    1) Buy a camera that doesn't suck. :p
    2) Put a VPN server with solid security on the separate router and LAN (wired not virtual), open that port only, and get in through there. :rolleyes:

    Leave your fusion ID so we can add you. I run my skimmer 24/7 at 50% power (for now)

    That is the name of your tank, not necessarily the fusion login id?
