notes:

A number of us have been watching for the return of a camera deal similar to the Hikvision OEM 1080P cube camera which Annke was selling for $50.

This appears to be close. Though I am not certain how easy it would be to swap out the lens. ( hopefully it is, though looks like you may need to remove part of the face )

OEM - it maybe a Dahua OEM - though I am uncertain. Would need to check the NVRs it is compatible with to get a better idea.

Hi digdoug, mrdizle

Should work as mrdizle noted ONVIF - thus there should be a nice rtsp feed available.

I did not find a proper spec sheet yet for these, but I do expect these to be good for NAS, NVRs, VMS software on a PC ( like Blue Iris )

Hi Max

Note only 12 fps max at 8MP, and it can do H.265 so it may not actually take up that much storage space.( 4x vs 1080P ) Would be nice to find a proper spec sheet that lists the bandwidth max you can expect it to use.

Hi nugentoffer,

I am uncertain. It should certainly be able to send an alert in some way, not certain if it can do some audio alarm.
( update - check out the following - it does have 2-way talk and thus a speaker - so maybe.. )

Why would you take out the lens?

HI lagvoid,

not IP PoE, just IP + wired AC adapter for power

Quote from digdoug6179

Hi digdoug

some like tighter FOVs and thus like to replace the lens. ( tighter FOV = longer ID distance )

note - probably not an option most of us would do as 8MP gets about 2x the ID distance of a 1080P / 2MP in theory. ( based on pixel density and 100 ppf for ID purposes )

Hi Max

take a closer look, on the spec sheet pdf:
"H.265, H.264"

as well as on the spec section on the webpage:
Video Compression: H.265, H.264

I have the white version of these - got it from Costco a year or so ago. They are a pain to setup as you need to use qsees app to have it connect to the wifi network. There is no front end webpage like most other cameras. Also you need to expose them to the internet while setting up. Motion detection data is not transmitted to my synology nas.
