Thanks for that Johnny! I have been pondering on getting the camera/app version but, due to total ignorance, keep procrastinating as I'm not sure how important the upload speed is (think <1)! Could you enlighten me please? There seems to be no mention in the specs. Cheers!we need to view our security situation as a potential thief or vandal would. Imagine viewing your property as a thief would. You're looking for a building that might house desirable valuable items and assessing what the risks might be of being caught and apprehended .
Having security equipment on show might tell a thief that you are protecting something valuable .......but it also tells a thief that you take security of your possessions very seriously. A thief can see your cameras etc but will also weigh up the probability that you might also have other unseen security . If it looks like hard work or too risky they will move on
I have a simple system of Tapo C100 1080 HD Wireless cameras which I can monitor at any time with my mobile or Samsung Tablet using a free downloaded APP. The cameras cost around £25.00 each and you start with one camera and can add up to 5 x more I believe. I can open the APP and view my cameras one by one or all together from my armchair whilst watching tv or in bed at night. They have built in 2x way audio , motion detection and alarm and can store video and still images to a Mini SD card inserted into each camera.

Sorry, I'm thinking about notifications and viewing what the camera sees when I'm away from home?not sure what you mean about upload speed ?
These cameras store the video and still images on their own Mini SD card just like your mobile phone so there is no uploading to Cloud or any online storage facility . The video image that you see is sent wirelessly through your WiFi router to your mobile or tablet in real time with a slight lag of about +- 1 second .
I'd imagine you could probably record the video on your mobile or tablet too but its so much more convenient to let the camera store it on the SD card then just retrieve the SD card and insert in your mobile or tablet to download.
At £25.00 or so for a stand alone full 1080 cctv camera system with built in recorder, PIR, Alarm, notifications to your mobile and 2x way audio its a fantastic solution
Just get an airhorn like the ones on trucks, a plunger switch and a latched relay, so if it goes off it can't be stopped by just shutting the door again. Then you will need a power supply and a way of turning it on and off, which can be a key operated switch, a remote blipper or whatever. But as I said earlier why let them get in in the first place. By the time they have opened your door they've probably already wrecked it, and you have all the cost and aggro of repairing it.I really just want a loud af horn to go off if the door is open without being disabled first. Like a car alarm.
you don't want much for twenty five quid do you !?Sorry, I'm thinking about notifications and viewing what the camera sees when I'm away from home?
