Bayit 1080p IP Cam

Does this camera need to stay connected to the Wifi network? Or, can it work without being connected to the router after the initial setup? I wanted to put it in a two story foyer window to see who is at the front door. Also, does it have motion activation or always on?

It would either need to be hard-wired into the network or be connected via Wi-Fi for you to be able to monitor the resulting video via the app.

does this device have the ability to be monitored anywhere or just from your home network?

There’s an app for that:

“…view recorded data via your mobile device with the Bayit Cam App.”
