I want to cover two staircases - at the request of relatives who want to be able to check to see if one of The Old People has fallen.... I guess so they can get there before the body decomposes so badly that the smell reduces the resale value of the house...-)

I am not married to the idea of POE, but it seems like running AC vs running Ethernet is a wash....and all my other cams are POE.

Anybody got something that they know and love?

For offerings like NetGear's Arlo, the ability to integrate with Blue Iris would be a very strong nice-to-have, if not a "Must".

Wireless/battery-powered is, however, attractive in that running Cat5 to the two locations is going to be quite difficult - and I wonder if wireless bandwidth constraints could be mitigated by having a separate WAP for each cam.

this is one of very few instances where 5.8 ghz wireless is practical. the range limitation is not a problem, the bandwidth is mostly unused
