PTZ IP Indoor Camera

I am looking for a good quality indoor PTZ wireless IP camera with IR nightvison and built in audio.

I am very happy with my Hikvision IP cameras using Blue Iris but can't find anything for indoor PTZ.

I would consider Foscam but want good quality and pictures
The Foscam FI9826P, a wireless home camera with HD 960P 3X optional zoom fits what I need perfectly



MSI Cubi Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-5200U CPU @ 2.20GHz, 2201 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s) 16GB DDRl RAM

Enabled Plug-Ins
BLRussound, BLSpeech, HSTouch Server, JowiHue, MyQ, Nest, Rain8, Squeezebox, Ultra1Wire3, UltraGCIR3, Vista Alarm, X10,Z-Wave

Years ago my favorite first generation PT cameras were Panasonic. I have one running today even though it is only SD. Its been on now 24/7 for some 10 years.

It is only used for giving me a visual of the utility room in the basement and it can see the hot water heater, furnace, sump pump, ejection pump, et al. I already have sensors on all of this stuff anyways.

Looked at their new stuff and it is a bit more expensive than their older stuff.

Way back did utilize the Foscam IP PT camera in the garage (first and second generation) for about a year then replaced it with a Grandstream dome.

I've been using Amcrest, which I think is owned by Foscam. Seem to work pretty well, and often on sale.

I ordered the Foscam. It fits exactly what I need.
Will see how it does.
