These cameras store video on a cloud server in China. So while I DGAF about videos of my dog in a kennel going off to China for devious purposes, some do - And that is where the hack comes in. You can use RTP feeds now and have it stored on a local server (e.g. Linux box with ZoneMonitor).

The hack is relatively easy, and requires the use of a micro SD card.

Hi Ponoma,

Indeed very tempting due to being able to hack these, although people should note that 720p cameras have very short ID distance ranges.

Thinking about waiting for the 1080p one to be hacked and picking one of those up to augment my POE cameras.


ID spec distance and associated area max covered calculations ( 100ppf+ ):

This is the theoretical max based on raw pixels from the horizontal resolution and the horizontal FOV. Calculations based on data provided in ads / spec sheets. Some vendors like to play games and list diagonal FOV instead of horizontal FOV as that number is bigger and not clarify that it is diagonal FOV.
Actual real world results will be decreased due to the quality of the camera ( glass vs plastic lens, compression quality, sw/firmware,... ), installation view, as well as environmental conditions ( low light, haze, fog, glare off snow, water rain,.. ).

Practical meaning: Place your cameras in such a manner that any suspect / subject you wish to potentially ID is within this ID spec distance, as well as in a placement which will give you a high likelihood of obtaining a good facial image ( mount camera 8 feet or less high ).

The 720? It was "hackable" in the sense you can get http and telnet with Shadow-1's v3. But I just got a 1080p one and they changed the model number from 18US to 28US, that "hack" is not working on the newer one as of yet.

I have a few of these sprinkled around the house alone with the 1080p model and the dome model. They work really well, set up is easy, and motion detection has been very accurate for me. I'd love it if it can some how integrate with my ST hub, but that's just reaching for the moon at this price.

I see 2 for $69 which is not bad.
The 1080P version was on sale during Amazon Prime Day for around $30-$35 each so I would say the 2 pack for $69 is a good deal.

Can you hook these up to a FTP server. I have 4 cameras now at FTP camera and have just under a year left of service. Need to replace my older cameras. I'm sure these are better than the swann 440 or forscam 18w i think also do the work upside down
