Outdoor wifi survilanca Camera, battery operated

I am looking at installing outside surveillance camera that I can monitor on my computer and from my android cell phone. Camera would need to have wifi and also if possible battery operated instead of a/c plug. Can someone recommend me one?

I don't think if they are available they would be reliable. You should run poe or something.

D-Link IP cameras have many Android apps and consume very little DC power.

You can use Li-ion battery packs designed for smartphones to power them for a few hours. But you need to make a DIY cable with DC plug on one end and USB on the other end.

*** There are stuff like this coming soon: »www.hivelabs.com/

Meet the Hive security camera. Award winning design. Crystal clear audio and video. Motion detection. Works day and night. And, unlike any other camera, it runs for 12 months on two AA batteries. Incredible! ... take that bold word literally for now.

Yes you probably are correct.

There are some out there, but they are outside normal budgets- $3K or so, per camera- »www.micropower.com/products/heli···verview/
Other than that, you could roll your own using several deep cycle marine batteries, and rotate them as necessary.

Now that i am thinking about it, looking for one that is battery only is unrealistic. So what is out there that is WiFi capable that can be monitored using android phone and computer? Is there is something that is reasonable priced? I am just looking to put few outside the house.
