Indoor CCTV, without the 3rd Party Apps?

Recommended Posts

Sir Topham Hatt    270

While I accept I may have to use a 3rd party, I'd rather not.

 

Looking for an indoor CCTV system that I can use to check on pets or babies using my phone. WiFi enabled. I don't need to be able to record the images.

I'm thinking it would be off until I call it up on the phone and only then will it turn on and show me.

 

Have taken a very quick look at Amazon and see most of them are from a 3rd party, which allows cloud storage and this and that.

 

I don't mind Microsoft knowing everything about me as I'm invested in their system but also don't want to pay extra for the name (I have Hive but the Hive cameras are rubbish and over priced, so ga e up on those). 

 

Any pointers as to what I could look at for this?

CCTV(DVR/NVR) or webcam? And what do you mean by 3rd Party? If you buy a dropcam for example, you use the Dropcam app, that's 1st party.

We use Furbo to check out on our pet. Problem is its expensive and that was a factor for just buying one. You can even talk to your pet and toss a treat at them. The other downside is that the camera is fixed but has a very wide lens.
