I know that a PC can be always connected to record this but I want it to be standalone for which local storage options seems nice. If IP camera can be made to record video whenever it senses motion & with lower frame rate I guess we can have many many hours of recording in 32 GB SD card which would translate to many weeks depending upon how much motion it senses.
Hope it will be someday available with MP4NATION with such an attractive going on at the moment for this basic IP camera.
Such a device that stores on SD could actually work for people interested in monitoring places over time, such as for animals i.e. filming a birds nest outside of your house. Anyways i am just rambling.
I checked the product list of the factory that supplies us with the current ip camera, they do have models that record directly to sd card, but they are very expensive, almost $150, but i think that is mainly due to them using a Sony lens.
