New webcam recommendation

Post by raulsbd79 »


I would like some advise. I have at the moment a Microsoft Lifecam 3000 as my pws webcam. My idea is to install a small weather proof webcam in the frame of the window, as the camera I have now is inside glued to the window and it gives many reflexions and with the double glass the quality is not the best.

I would not like to spend more that £70 ideally. I was looking at the Xiaomi YI 1080p outside webcams.. but I don't know if those can be just powered via usb or they are ip cameras..

Does anyone could recommend a webcam for my PWS small and with decent quality? I only want for the weather not for security.

I was also thinking on one of them action cameras that are weather proof.. will they work just by plugging them to the USB port on my pc?

Many thanks for your advise!
