Ip-cam children's room

our big guy (2ys) has now a big bed where he can get in and out as he pleases. apparently for him it makes sense to get up at 5 in the morning and to play for 2 hours before everyone else is getting up… only problem: he’s tired AF at 11’’…
that’s why we’re looking for a cam with these features:

  • night vision
  • movement detection
  • light sensibility
  • “smart”: i’d like to integrate alarm for movement and light sensibility in openHAB

does anyone have an idea? it would be great if we wouldn’t have to order in china or us (long shipping times)…


I have a Foscam FI9831P. Been using it for 3 years now as a “baby monitor” - just with an old Galaxy S4 phone, but am starting to look at incorporating it into openHAB.

This is a Pan & Tilt camera, has Infra Red for night vision, and on-device motion/sound detection. It can’t “natively” contact openHAB in any way unlike the slightly older Foscam models, but you can poll its status with a simple URL command, and get this into an item within OH to utilise.

This is identified here under the “Poll camera device state” section:

Amcrest dahua or Foscam HD range with this binding will work great. Movement and audio alarms are easy to setup.

Instar 8015 has motion detection using an integrated PIR sensor that reduces fail alarms.
Integration to OH works fine.
