Hi guys,
we've currently got some IP cameras in the house which let us keep an eye on Darwin when he runs round various rooms and Mimi is too poorly to chase him. They also lets me log in remotely to keep an eye on them both in case of anything happening. They are ~£30 from Amazon and seem to run through some Chinese app called ShowMo, so we're looking to upgrade to a better (more reliable) set of cameras (budget around £300-400 ish I guess, but would pay more for the right system). For reference, these are the ones we currently have: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B06XD8J83V/ but they often drop the wifi signal and need rebooting.

Features we pretty much need:
- 3 cameras
- can log in on iOS from any external network to view video and audio
- IR night vision with no bright LED or floodlighting (can't keep Darwin awake at night for the one in his room)
- runs on wireless network
- 2 way audio

Features not necessary:
- ability to rewind video
- live alerts for motion
- ability access recordings from the past
- anything externally specific, such as waterproofing

has anyone got any ideas of anyting reliable? Really looking to get something from Amazon so we can have it delivered next day delivery on prime, as Mimi collapsed this week and had to go to A&E and is worried it will happen when she's on her own or with Darwin.

I have a few Nest cameras. They’re excellent, and they do everything on your list, but they’re £££ I’m afraid.

Thanks Doc. Nest is a reputable brand as far as I’m aware and as it’s for safety I’m happy with £££

I’ve ordered three to come tomorrow and we’ll see how we go.

Thank you.

I was going to post as I asked a friend which ones he uses. They're made by Samsung and he would struggle to recommend them.

But anyway, give Mimi my best and I hope she's feeling better soon! Take care all of you!
