Editor Remarks

This Indoor/outdoor camera is best mounted on the ceiling and can have its pan/tilt adjusted during installation. PoE would be preferred because you're going to run ethernet to it anyway. There is no wireless option and no local storage.

The included software is a little below industry standards, and you should IMMEDIATELY disable or change the password of the default admin account on this camera to prevent network intruders or even house guests to gain access to this camera.

Highly recommend pairing this with BlueIris software, and setup is a breeze. Wide angle is absolutely crucial for indoors--don't bother with non-wide-angle for indoors, unless used in a narrow hallway.

In comparison with the Sharx SCNC3905, the optical IQ (image-quality) seems a little bit grainier and not as crisp compared to the Sharx, perhaps due to the lower-light environment, but is sufficient. Either way, this is a solid camera at less than half-the price of Sharx if you can run ethernet to it.
