I'm using older Foscam R2 cameras, which have pan/tilt/zoom functionality and work great with Surveillance Station. That model is effectively discontinued now, but they've got newer/better things in the line, generally in the $50-$70ea range. Good stuff.

great, thanks!


I can recommend the Trendnet TV-IP311 and newer models.  You can use POE or use local PSU if you prefer.  The aforementioned model is a 3MP camera, and I have 30+ of these in one site and one of the newer 5MP models as well.  I highly recommend them, but I think are simply rebadged HIKvision cameras, so I guess they’d be just as good.  The Trendnet software is junk, but combined with surveillance station they’re very good.
