I have an old Panasonic pan and tilt 640x480 IP cam I've been meaning to upgrade to HD. Just like to keep an eye on the pets when I am away. I'll have a look at some of these names that were mentioned here. Are there any particular reasonably priced HD pan and tilt IP cams or should I just stick with a fixed cam?

Boy, I'm not sure what US manufacturers are available! I'm taking a weekly online class from IPVM, next class starts in 20 minutes. I'll ask them about what US manufacturers are available, if any.

Axis is Swedish, and one of the original IP camera manufacturers. Very good quality, and I wouldn't have the same security concerns about using them. Samsung is a solid mid-tier manufacturer worth looking at.


Avigilon manufactures in the US and Canada. Their US plant is in the DFW metroplex.
