Notes: This mini Network IP Camera shown above is one of the cheapest, functional and dependable that I have found, But the Hi3518E based camera above is a wired Ethernet only camera without wireless. It does not use IR-CUT or have IR lights or support PoE. But it's a great price and can be used and/or mounted virtually anywhere.

You will also need to purchase/use a 12V DC 1 amp power supply for the camera above. Which can be purchased anywhere. You may even have one laying around. You can also purchase one from the same seller as the mini camera shown above if needed for $2.30 U.S. ("Free Shipping") here: Note: The cord on the above 12V DC 1 amp power supply is short. So depending where you are going to mount your camera you may want to find a similar power supply with a longer cord. You can also purchase a RT3070 WiFi board for about $10.00 U.S. for this Hi3518E camera module and even the mini camera shown above and with a special firmware version make this same Hi3518E camera module or the mini camera shown above support both wired and wireless.

Note: Most RT3070 Wifi boards won't fit in the container for the mini camera shown above so you would need to run wires from the RT3070 WiFi board into the mini camera container and then connect those wires to the mini cameras Hi3518E camera module board and create a housing/container for the RT3070 WiFi board and the WiFi antenna it will use. You can also build and make your own custom Network IP Cameras by using the this Hi3518E camera module or other camera modules and boards manufactured by this same manufacturer. Which can support IR-CUT and PoE. See the links above for more details. The possibilities are endless for designing and building your own custom Network IP Cameras using this manufacturers Network IP Camera modules and boards while doing it extremely cheap!
