    Default Remote video cameras

    Supposedly had intruders at my property next door. The source is suspect.

    I need a quick and dirty wireless camera that will talk to my Android. I don't have line of sight because of terrain and trees.

    Any suggestions?

    There are game cameras that will send to your phone, I don't have any idea which ones are best

    If you have wifi network coverage Arlo makes great cameras:

    here's the weather proof list:

    They also make a solar panel if you have network & no power. Check which ones you want @ Costco if you're a member.

    Amcrest makes a few product lines that would fit your specifications. The API they use is fairly good and the amcrest view pro app for phones is not bad either.

    IMO that would be Reconyx, but they are expensive.

    Blink XT or XT2 might work for you, if you have or can get decent 2.4 WIFI coverage for what you want to monitor. Can have up to 10 cameras on a single hub.

    +1 for Arlos. The arlo go model is completely wireless and will go about 30-days on a battery. I own about 15 of them for work.

    We have a couple of the Blink cameras here at the farm as well.

    So far they have worked great. The wife got them from Amazon about a year ago.

    I started with 4 XT's & now have a combination of 10 XT & XT2's. Very pleased with the performance for how little they cost. And since they have been in service since 2018 I have a grandfathered free account. The icing on the cake was it forced me to optimize my WIFI.
