Hi,

I breed Birds of Prey & use Ip cameras in the aviaries which I view on my laptop.

My original IP camera is an "EasyN" which I view wirelessly. I have recently bought a "Wanscam" which I've connected via a LAN line.

Both cameras have the option of adding multi cameras when I watch them on my laptop.,

Are they compatible, can I add the "EasyN" camera to the viewer I use to watch the "Wanscam" (Or vice versa) .

I have the option of making them both wireless or both using a LAN line.

Thanks in advance

John

It would depend on if they use some type of standard.  Normally you stick with the same brand so you don't have any issues.  You will have to load the software up and try, one, both, or neither may work.  Another option might be to use a different software package that is compatible with a range of cameras.

Or you could also get a decent DVR system such as the Night Owl products. They are relatively inexpensive (a $300.00 package gets you the DVR and 4 to 6 Cameras) and you can hook the one DVR to your router. Then you could setup port forwards through the router so that you can view the cameras from any web browser or even your phone. But it also depends on how many cameras your going to want.

Thanks for the replies,

i do have a DVR set as well, connected to a monitor in my conservatory. What I like about the IP Cameras is the fact you can pan & tilt them remotely

John.

 

I hadn't thought about connecting it to my router though, Thank you.
