LaView Panda LV-PC902F2-W HD 1080P 2MP Day/Night w/PIR Detection, Motion, Built-in Micro SD Slot Wireless or PoE IP Camera
$79.99 with free shipping with ShopRunner or Premiere. NE typically carries it for $100 and Amazon has it now for $110.
As I understand it, this camera is a rebadge of the well regarded Hikvision DS-2CD2432F-I(W) Cube camera. The notable differences are:
- The LaView has US firmware whereas the Hikvision FW depends on where you buy it. Often the US branded Hikvisions carry a premium over the Chinese brown box versions.
- The LaView is only 2 MP whereas the Hikvision is 3 MP
- The LaView has a low light sensitivity of 0.028 lux , whereas the Hikvision's is 0.07 lux . Lower is better for low light use. Both have IR.
- The LaView comes with a power adaptor, whereas the Hikvision may not again depending on where you buy it
