I’m interested in a camera setup for my house, and I’d prefer that it go through Smartthings. So far, I have a single Smartcam Pro, and it’s worked great as a baby monitor. But there are quite a few missing features, including the ability to deactivate motion alerts, that I think are essential for use in other rooms.
So, I’m looking at other options. Since the rest of my house is in Smartthings, it seems logical to use the same system for video. I’ve been looking over @blebson’s D-Link setup and @RBoy’s Blink setup. The blink cameras look like a good setup and definitely have a good price, but I’m weary of the lower 720p resolution. I like that D-Link has a variety of cameras that work, but I’d rather not have to deal with port forwarding, if I can help it.
Can anyone share their experience with a camera setup? I’m interested in likes, dislikes, or any other suggestions you may have.
