These cameras are fantastic. They have both a P2P solution (easy setup, uses QR code, must use Amcrest app), and support for ONVIF specification, it can be used with whatever software you want.

Amcrest (and Wansview) are one of the few Chinese cams that do this right. They have cameras that support traditional setup methods and supports the ONVIF specification so they work with a large amount of applications on many platforms. "Lifestyle" cams like Yi and Zmodo, which are trying to compete with Nest, Arlo, Circle, etc., all do not support this. You're tied to their apps and cloud, so they all become useless if the company ever kills the cloud server.

With this Amcrest camera, you have the best of both worlds. Easy access from anywhere using their app, all without the need to configure port forwarding and DDNS in your router. The P2P support makes it easy to use, like the lifestyle cams. And if they ever discontinue their cloud service, the cams can still be configured manually and use other apps, like TinyCam for Android and IP Cam Viewer for iOS, or any other app that is ONVIF compliant.

There are only two downsides to this camera. First, it only has a moderate field of view at 90°. It does pan and tilt, but that requires moving the camera if you want to capture more than 90°. It's great in the corner though. The second downside is that it doesn't tilt down very far, so you may want to mount on the ceiling and invert the image in the camera settings.

If you want something with a wide angle that isn't motorized, I'd recommend the Wansview K1 for $60. It's 1080p25fps, so not quite the 30fps of the Amcrest, but it has a very wide 120° field of view, so it doesn't need to be stuck in a corner to cover an entire room.

You can mount the camera upside down then flip the view in the settings. I do this for a couple of my cams.

I think you can schedule night vision to only operate during times you choose.
Amcrest/setup/camera/configuration - setup night and day settings. Then Amcrest/setup/camera/profile management/schedule period.

I have 2 of these. The image quality is excellent.

My biggest gripes are that it can't angle very low. So if you have it up on a shelf, you won't see the floor until you get about 7 feet out in front of the camera. Also, if the light is not on bright, or extremely low, it will constantly turn night vision on and off (this is extremely annoying when you're sitting in the room and it constantly clicks).

I've never had to contact Amcrest, so I can't say about them, but since I mentioned Wansview in my post, I figured I should share about them since I have contacted them. Their support is great for a smallish Chinese company. Definitely better than Foacam.

Do you know if this can be used as a outdoor camera ( covered from direct sunglight and rain).?

It's not weather rated, so generally the answer would be no.

But if it's say on a table under a covered patio, it would probably work OK if you're in a warm, dry climate. If it rains a lot, even if covered, it could start to form condensation in the lens. Now that's not to say it will, but if you use outdoors in a covered area, I would still expect the lifespan of the camera to be shortened.
