Just finished installing our new security camera, it looks and works pretty good! I'm going to order a second for the opposing side of the RV. The camera has pan and tilt, no zoom unfortunately and it runs on solar so it made my setup a little bit easier! I used 3M sticky tape to stick the small solar panel to the side of the RV and that solar panel isn't going anywhere!https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200622/4f65667cf2e1b08e536b9b069498801f.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200622/d63c3a9c64fafdf9f3108e7ee4e66283.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200622/1d30f245c94f95c51425f8f5954c97a5.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200622/926ad31fddbcdbf55a031f5e87cf0a83.jpg

And I'm curious as to how it will travel down the highway.

Interesting... we were thinking of adding the Furrion door camera since we already have that observation camera setup. I like the pan and tilt on yours.

Linda and Bill - I'm using 4 Furrion cameras on my coach. The new Vision S stuff is really nice. No PTZ and no recording, but decent images and sound and the signal holds rock solid when traveling.

Sent from my moto z3 using TapatalkIt's a Reolink, the camera definitely won't travel down the highway but it goes on and comes off with a few twists of the mounting screw, the solar panel will stay on for sure though using the 3M tape. I've been pretty impressed with the camera so far!

Linda & Bill / 2015 North Trail 22RBK / 2004 Ford F-350I went this route for the solar setup, and pan and tilt option so when we're away we can get a good view of the RV. I'm going to eventually put the other one on the opposing side but time during the day always seems to disappear to fast. Maybe these cameras will catch the time thief? [emoji1787]

This is the daytime and night time quality. It has really clear quality for both. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200626/f9cadffad4aeaa1c09bd468c59d90db1.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200626/fd7844fb8b112f1426763262e7cd8617.jpg

We use Blink cameras, they are battery operated. You do have to have them networked to the internet to view on a smartphone. They are motion activated to record and do have night vision. I take them down for travel.

Sent from my iPhone using TapatalkWow! I'm impressed! I like your placement way better than ours and your quality looks really good! Is your placement on the top corner of your RV? I might be moving ours to where yours are located!

Can the blink cameras link up to a verizon hot spot (MIFI)? Or does it have to use a router?

Yes the Blink can use a hotspot. We have a router in our rig, but we actually have 3 cameras at another location and they use an at&t hotspot to connect to the internet.

Iím not using a JetPack, I think that is a Verizon nomenclature. We have AT&T service. We have a Netgear Unite Explore. But it does the same thing.

Actually this is a newer version than what we have, but yes. It comes with a small swivel/tilt mounting bracket which we used an automotive adhesive tape to apply to the side of the rig. The camera is detachable from the mounting bracket for travel. I would not travel with them attached, itís not secure enough for that.

Sometimes they put them on sale around a holiday.
