While Teleport works with any IP camera, often these need to be paired with a solar power or even cellular Internet connection. Sourcing these kits can be tricky as there is no standard or readily available low-cost solutions.
In terms of the camera, any IP camera will work with Teleport. We recommend these cameras.
Virtually any IP camera can be powered by solar. The IP camera is connected via a single standard Ethernet cable to the solar kit. Here is what is commonly needed for a solar powered kit:
The kits are sourced or assembled based on what is available in your area. Unfortunately, doesn't seem to be any good solutions available on Amazon yet. Talking to local IP security firms is a good way to source ready-to-go kits. Or, to put a kit together yourself you can use this article as a guide.
When deciding on a system or camera consider the ways in which Teleport and the camera can connect. This especially matters if a cellular carrier doesn't offer a public IP address.
In terms of the all-in-one solar + 4G + IP camera integrated solution it is still early days. The cameras available on places like Amazon are usually closed systems and only work with their own apps. Or can be unreliable or don't work with all cellular carriers. For example, no major IP camera manufacturer has a solar powered version yet.
While this will change as these integrated all-in-one offerings evolve, to date, the best solution in terms of reliability and robustness that we found is any good IP camera + a separate solar/4G solution of your choosing.
It is worth nothing that keeping the camera separate from the solar kit has many benefits:
