Rated 5 out of 5 by from good value camera with free cloud storage brought one of these, as they were in offer in a maplins store, just to see if they were any good, and my expectations have been surpassed, picture quality is good for the price, and you get your footage stored for a week onthe free cloud storage,, cant go wrong at this price for a indoors cctv camera.

I'm trying to find out how much data this uses on standby.... when not activated, and when activated just to view remotely, not recording as I'm on a boat and have limited data. Also can it be connected directly to 12v and how much power does it consume..

Asked by: markymark
I am sorry but this is an impossible question to answer, as it would depend on so many variables, such as a number of activations, the quality the camera was set at, the ambient light conditions and so on, I would not advise running any security system from a mobile broadband connection only.

Hi, will this camera sit outside under the eaves of the house (protectted from rain), if not what would do the job to connect to the TPlink system.

This is an indoor camera, it would be unsuitable for external use even if in a sheltered location.

once connected do you have to subscribe  to other account for night viewing and recording

No, once you have set up an account and configured the camera with the tpCamera app, this is all you would need to monitor the camera and access cloud recordings.
