Best thing I would say now is that you should contact Rose Point for recommendations on cameras. That way this whole conversation is moot.
Ok I'm still confused. If these cameras use an IP address, is it not possible to connect them to a standard desktop computer? What happens if your internet access goes down at home? You still have your cameras working with connection to your WiFi and desktop. Correct? Never had IP cameras before so I'm not sure about this. I do not have to use the CE program to display. Maybe I could use another software program and display the videos on the desktop monitor outside of the CE program??
