    Hi everyone,

    I was wondering how many of you have webcams pointed at your tanks?

    I'd like to get one and would appreciate any recommendations.

    Considerations:
    - My upload speed sucks (800-1100kbps) (welcome to Australia sucker!)
    - Pan/tilt controls would be ideal
    - IR/Nightvision would be nice, but not a game breaker
    - If I can connect it to Apex fusion, all the better (but not essential)
    - I run Android and OS-X.
    - Priced around $300-$600

    Found the Foscam unit to be quite good. I was able to keep an eye on my tank while I was in Europe recently.

    yeah Foscam is great, one of their higher end units would still be at the lower end of your budget, or buy two!
