Because a 10 second snap shots are not the same as streaming video.

Speaking of Foscam: i can't get the app on phone to work outside of my own Wi-Fi? Anyone have a similar issue or know how to fix it?

of course. Use any IP can app. You are not restricted to foscams app.

You need to open a port on your router, make sure the camera is using the same fixed IP address from the router.
Also use a DNS service to like noip to make sure your external IP remains static.

I did try another app but you lost me after that.  I dint know any of this stuff bytI think i had to open a port and make sure our was a static ip to get it to work in the first place. It works fine to my home and work computer but doesn't work on the phone apps

I'm looking to buy 4 outdoor IP cameras with the following specs and NVR:

weather proof
high quality
night vision
would need remote access
Wired (As I understand that they work better)
vandalism proof isn't a must, but would consider if it isn't a lot more.
2T NVR

Any ideas?

Any options for an indoor camera where there's no wifi/internet?  Someone keeps kicking in the rear door at one of my [vacant] properties.

My concern is he'll see it and take it...  I can wire it all myself, that's not an issue.  Maybe I'll just get one of those raggedy looking bear cams.
