I'm replacing the floodlight on the garage and thought why not look for a cam light. I did some Googling but all I can find is a bunch of the the crappy "Ring" or similar type floodlight cameras that are proprietary, WiFi non-BI friendly and basically nothing I want.

Curious if anyone has run across anything better in a similar format.
I'd like to find a floodlight cam that was POE network connected and could work with BI.

Check in the cliff notes; I have some PoE-powered IR and White LED flood lights.

Sorry, I meant looking for security light units integrated with a security camera in them...that are any good...and may also offer POE connection for power and video. (BTW the cliff notes are awesome in general)

I installed one of my Dahua turrets directly beneath a dual floodlight. If you're not paying attention, you won't notice it because they're both white. If someone integrates a motion detection camera firmware with a relay to turn on the flood lights using a quality camera, they'll sell like hotcakes. Mostly because of a single mounting effort. But it needs to be a quality POE camera that's reliable, not some of the worst Chinese crap you so commonly see.

You can send a suggestion over to Dahua via Andy @EMPIRETECANDY
If demand and popularity persists, perhaps they will be able to make one eventually in the future :)

lol..no they wont...dahua does not cater to the ring market...the best place to put a camera is almost never the same place you want a flood. You still need to run ethernet to the camera...there are poe powered floods with poe passthrough.
