Compatible Camera

What cameras are compatable with Xfinity Home? I have one in the rear of my house and I pay $9.99/month for recording to the cloud. However, I just want a 24/7 camera to monitor inside my doorway and would like to avoid the exorbitant monthly costs and installation fees and just install it myself.

Re: Compatible Camera

The model that we currently offer is the xCam - I highly recommend this camera. I have several myself and the HD picture quality (espeically the night vision) is excellent.  https://www.xfinity.com/learn/home-security/devices/cameras

 

The previous HD model we offered and which is still compatible is the iCam2.  This also has great picture quality, but is a little trickier to pair with the system (you can't use the XFINTIY Home App pairing process). 

 

Years ago, we also offered the iCamera 1000 (indoor/outdoor) and  Sercomm RC8021 (indoor only) Standard Definition cameras. I would no longer recommend these, as the picture quality on the newer HD cameras is much better.

Re: Compatible Camera

While the quality of the Xcam is pretty good (still wish they had sound capability) they are not very weather resistant.  I have had to have two replaced as they got water in them.  Finally rapped the last one in water proof tape and it seems to be lasting (about 6 months to date).  The worst thing about the Xcam is the mount.  You can adjust up and down somewhat (becomes loose after time), but are very limited in sideways adjustments.  The mount is poorly designed.  The Icam2 had a much better mount that could be adjusted in any direction.
