I need a Dumb, PoE Outdoor Security Camera

------------------------------------------------------
Any suggestions for a good IP-based security camera? There are way too many
on the market.
I'm looking for:
- PoE IP camera (wired, NOT wireless)
- Outdoor
- Does NOT come with any apps
- Won't phone home (I don't want my stuff -- or even the camera firmware --
trying to connect to anything outside of my LAN -- I'll probably even block
the MAC address on my firewall)
- Motion detection
- Dumb (footage will be stored on local NAS)
- Did I mention no apps & no phoning home?What do you recommend?

My DVR will be Synology hardware.

I'm probably not interested in UniFi for a couple of reasons:

   - I've heard their cameras may not play incredibly nicely with Synology
   - They recently snuck in a change to their Wireless AP firmware for it
   to phone home automatically.... and currently there's no way to opt-out:

=============================================================== From: Dan Lyke ------------------------------------------------------ I got an Alptop AT-400B for trying out: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B077V8J8WJ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I eventually went with Ring 'cause I was tired of trying to get Zoneminder or any of its competitors running reliably. I feel icky for having done so, but only so many hours in the day. In my testing, it looks like the image quality is okay. It worked. I'd offer it to you, but it probably costs less to buy one than for me to ship it to you.

=============================================================== From: Nick Smith ------------------------------------------------------ I cant help with that as all my cameras phone home. (waves to china) But i did find this, hopefully it will help in some way https://www.synology.com/en-us/compatibility/camera

=============================================================== From: Andrew Rodgers ------------------------------------------------------ I bought one of these a few months ago and was impressed by the build quality: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07G5ZMCSG/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_i_-GUWDb1ETJHEC If you want a sure thing that supports most of the standard formats and is as close to axis for professional integration as you can get, checkout Hikvision Andrew

=============================================================== From: wes ------------------------------------------------------ Where the heck is it coming from that it would cost more than $40 to ship? -wes X19fX19fX19fX19fX19fX19fX19fX19fX19fX19fX19fX19fX19fX19fX19fX18KQ2h1Z2FsdWcg bWFpbGluZyBsaXN0CkNodWdhbHVnQGNodWdhbHVnLm9yZwpodHRwOi8vY2h1Z2FsdWcub3JnL2Nn aS1iaW4vbWFpbG1hbi9saXN0aW5mby9jaHVnYWx1Zwo=
