There are several, maybe hundreds, of 'webcams' that do that. Amazon, Bestbuy, ebay all carry them. To many to list.

Yes but they are not all equal so was hoping for some experience advice

[Mod Edit]

At some point your surveillance and hazard/intrusion monitoring systems will need to communicate with you outside of the coach. Lots of experience in the iRV2 Technology forum. Just sayin'

What about a doorbell system like ring. I recently bought a similar system for my home. I can monitor and receive alerts.

I installed a Ring alarm system (not a doorbell). Does everything I need including recording, alarms, monitoring and most any type detection device I could want.
As someone else mentioned you will need internet access for it all to work.

Not really an alarm system but we have a Nest Hub Max. We use it primarily so our little guy can do video calls with his grandparents when we travel. It has a camera that can send alerts if it detects a person, loud noises, or other alarms. Added benefit of displaying the weather and family photos. Like others have mentioned, you will need a internet connection for it to work.

Have also used Wyze cameras in other applications. They are cheap and work quite well with similar notifications to the Nest. They can record to an sd card if you lose internet access.

Currently trying Wyze camera(monitors fish tank while away) , works ok. Need’s outside monitoring for recording. Purchased eufy cameras for outside house. Uses base station inside for recording. Only records with movement sensed by camera. No outside monitoring fee. Big plus. Got riolink camera for rv, uses sad card in camera to record. Works great, no outside monitoring fees necessary.
Between the 3, riolink has the best picture from the camera. Eufy works well, pictures not as detailed when viewing. Notification of movement detected on phone and I watch can be annoying. No firm decisions yet. All 3 use Wi-Fi to link with phones. So wi fi is necessary for full time monitoring. Eufy makes a cell based system, however more expensive and cell SIM card is required for each camera.
Still in testing mode. Will update with final decision for both rv and home.

I just stay out of RV parks where a security system might be needed.

My RV is getting some work done and I left a couple of blink mini cameras on in there along with my own WIFI. Blink walks you through the install on your phone.

In response. Ring cameras have a reputation for being compromised. I didnít want to open that door (pun). I worked to long in a profession that required secure systems and couldnít have that possibly. Iím still new to the ďwirelessĒ systems. Thatís why Iím trying different systems to see what works for me. Not sure whatís best yet. My post just reflects my current experience. Hope this helps.

I believe that was 3 years ago. They now have end to end encryption. It is as good as your password though. Strong passwords should not have to be reminded to use but some still use simple easy to guess ones. For a DIYer you should not set up your own security system if you're not going to use strong passwords IMO. To each your own.

I use the ANNKE DVR system. Records everything local, sends notifications when "connected to internet". Easy to setup. Not really too expensive.
