Use case matters with this.  No subscription means in house network.  So you’ve got to have a computer or other system to store the generated video as well as a way to connect and control them.  Poe can be quite popular for this.

  Things that will matter just for cameras:

connection type

-weather proof or not

-night vision or not

-resolution (costs go up fast with higher resolutions)

Not a pro, not even very good.  I’m just old and have time currently.  Assuming I know a lot about computers can be a mistake.

 

Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

Yes in house network must be able to review remotely.

The camera will primarily indoors

Night is not a must but nice to have

480 should be good
