Axis Video cams

Axis video cams show excelent performance in stability and durability. Cheaper network cameras like D-Link or LevelOne crashed when accessing them frequently by a script. All my Axis cams are working without any crash since many years. All of them connected by LAN.

Permanent WiFi connection

Keep in mind that network cam access over WiFi requires a high-quality WiFi access point. For example the WiFi access point, built in swisscom routers, is not sufficient to support a permanent WiFi connection. Espelically, when using raspberry pi with a WiFi dongle.

Video lens

Always check that the opening angle (angular aperture) of the cam fits to its requirements.
