    Looking for an outdoor security camera

    I'm looking for an outdoor security camera. Needs to be POE, PTZ, good optical zoom & good night vision distance.

    Any recommendations?

    ETA: Needs to be ONVIF Compliant as well.

        I've been looking at the Ring camera system.
        I am not armed out of fear of who's in front of me.
        I am armed out of love of those behind me.

          For the doorbell, I was thinking of the Ring Pro, but I want to be able to record the video on my own NVR/NAS unit.

          But I'm having some work done on the house & now need to add an additional camera to my system. I'd like it to be POE, PTZ, good optical zoom & good night vision distance.

            1I've got a Ring doorbell, 3 spotlight cameras, and a solar powered spotlight camera for a corner where I couldn't (wouldn't) route electricity through the brickwork. The videos show up on my phones, tablets, and computers. Works well in bright sunlight as well as in dark of night. I couldn't be happier. As far as all your specs are concerned, I'm not techno-savvy and didn't understand a thing.

              I agree. I just didn't want to deal with an entire DVR system. And Ring seems modular enough to expand as needed.

                No problems with my ring doorbell or spot light cam.

                  The cam, battery or hardwired?

                    Battery doorbell and battery cam with solar panel, everything works perfectly. I pay the $100 year for their video storage for unlimited cams, extended warranty on cams and 10% off new purchases.

                      How long are the batteries lasting?

                        Prob charge the doorbell once a month but I have the sensitivity high. The cam with solar panel, never. They sell a solar charger for the doorbell too.

                          Only thing about Ring is it only records about a minute at a time from when it senses motion. Also no pan tilt zoom, etc.

                          I agree, it's dead simple from an install perspective and user friendly enough that my wife can easily use it. My four year old daughter will actually ring the doorbell to say hi to us mid day, and will ask to see what animals came by when she wakes up in the morning.

                          That being said if you want to be able to do solid live monitoring and more recording you'll need something better.

                            Ohh also if you have a brick house....be aware that wifi cameras take a big hit. Especially if you have lath and plaster walls.

                            It takes about 15-30 seconds for my cameras to load onto my phone from when I say "go". Not the end of the world, but not sure what you're expectations are.
