Since I installed my 4MP PTZ camera in back of the house this time, I had to order another one for the driveway. They now offer the same camera, (RLC-423), in a 5MP version so that is what I got.

The picture quality is marginally better but the real gain is in the field of view.

The original view is 2560x1440

And here is the improved view at 3072x1728

Personally I wish the 4x zoom would have been more like 20 but it's good enough to creep on the mail lady mishandling my package...

The night vision is greatly enhanced as well and it looks like there is a yard light shining on my truck.

Is the camera worth the money they are asking for it? Debating on putting this setup in front of my garage

Debating the RLC-423 PTZ?

I think so and now I want to replace the 4MP with another 5.

Tell you what, I’ll sell you my 4MP PTZ for $125 shipped if you think it will work but don’t want to pony up for the full amount.

Thank you for that but just didn't know if there was enough of a difference. Wife was studying for a test earlier and I already pulled the trigger after seeing your screenshots earlier and reading the reviews.

Update? Did you get the new one yet?
Amazon "lost" my package since GPS takes drivers out into the middle of a field by my house even though I have called in and complained a handful of times. They refunded my money and I procrastinated about reordering the camera and it jumped up 50 dollars. I still need to run electric to the garage/ethernet cable and we just had a baby shower for my wife at our house on Sunday so the garage has been on the back burner.

I have a swann w/ 1TB hard drive, I love it. 720 resolution, night vision cameras and motion sensor activated recording. Running the wires sucks but in my opinion it’s worth it. Any source of an arc will knock out wireless cameras. I think smart criminals know this. It’s great watching the pissed off ups guy deliver my Chewy dog food order.
