No, this is not new. Back in October last year, Banggood sent this little, inexpensive WiFi Escam auto-tracking PTZ pan-and-tilt 1080p night vision camera to me and for reasons beyond me I did nothing with it. I’m sorting my stuff to take away with me this summer and I was about to file the camera under “bin” as nowadays I only want to use cameras that support RSTP/ONVIF and just assumed this would NOT. WRONG.
Currently priced at £18.48 on Banggood’s site, I could not remember the name of the APP (that’s what the blog is for) and have long since lost the sheet that came with the camera. I plugged in a microUSB lead which I had handy and gave my usual generic Android ONVIFER program a whirl, knowing only that at some point I will have put my usual password for internal devices into the camera – and guess what, it worked immediately.
Ansd there it is – the ESCAM PVR008 – simple, cheap, works well, 1080p – decent output – this is about to get a job…
Getting it working on my PC is another matter, but using Onvifer on the mobile – easy.
