Hi
For an Arduino setup I'm working on I would like to connect an IP camera to a router so I can monitor the Arduino setup which is also connected to the router.
When I look for IP camera's I always find very expensive ones (more expensive than wifi camera's  smiley-eek )
Does anyone have a good address for reasonable priced IP camera's?
Best regards

So you want to have a camera pointed at the Arduino? Seems an odd thing to do.
Seems to be plenty on e-bay for like $35 & up.

Thanks for the feedback.
The link you send is to a wifi cam  smiley-cry. But  smiley-grin ... I always forget to look at ebay. I found this one http://www.benl.ebay.be/itm/FCS-0010-Level-One-IP-camera-/140808901397?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_123&hash=item20c8dd5315
Which is great as it is tax included and free shipment for me.

For me it is not an odd thing to have a camera look at my Arduino, as I'm working on remote Arduino control. So having a camera showing me that the led/engine/servo indeed followed the order given is a great added value. When I thrust the Arduino to do what I ask him I may turn the camera away from the Arduino to have some visual feedback on where the robot is.

Did you look at the specs. for the cam? That cam appears to have an ethernet RJ45 connector. Most network wifi cams have an ethernet interface at a minimum for the cam setup, which also can be used for network connections.

Thanks for the info. I wasn't ware that those wifi cams also had a Ethernet cable. The one crossroads mentioned has one.
It sounds weird to me that a wifi IP cam is cheaper than a IP cam without wifi. I guess it is all about mass production.

The question is wether the inexpensive cams are any good. Some of the inexpensive cams may be knockoff clones of more expensive cams without tech support, updated drivers, and such.
