Supported Cameras

SecuritySpy is compatible with thousands of cameras from hundreds of manufacturers, so it's impossible to list all models individually, but below is a list of manufacturers along with our comments and recommendations, derived from our own testing as well as customer feedback.

If you purchase an ONVIF-compliant camera, it is highly likely to work with SecuritySpy, even if the manufacturer is not on this list. ONVIF is a protocol that standardises communication between IP video products.

For any camera whose manufacturer is not on this list, and which doesn't support ONVIF, we would strongly advise against purchasing it.

We endeavour to keep this list up to date, but this is a fast-changing industry and we cannot guarantee complete accuracy. We therefore recommend you purchase from a store with a good returns policy.

From time to time, we do make some specific camera recommendations on the Ben Software Blog.

A star () indicates a manufacturer that we recommend for their high-quality products and good compatibility.

Here are some general recommendations:
