It's neat, especially how they power it.
Here it is in Ethan's hand at ISC West, for a sense of scale:
- Pretty sure, it is Ubiquiti VMS / NVR only, no 3rd party support so its either all Ubiquiti or nothing.
- It is indoor only (despite the video showing it being mounted onto a brick wall).

Yup. Looked like a wonderful little WiFi camera for discreet indoor use. The magnetic base that it swivels on provides power through built in contacts. Nicly designed, and ideal for indoor residential, or discreet business/office applications.
Alas, exactly as Ethan said, it only works with the Ubiquiti video ecosystem. No OnVif, RTSP, etc. Unless you want to install their NVR, so that the NVR will stream RTSP to another NVR. (sorry, I don't want your cute little camera that badly)
Ubiquiti is a strange company. Some really GREAT wireless products, and some real oddball products. (strange VoIP phones with no obvious supporting service... remote control outlets and switches that don't work with zwave, and a great 2.4GHz access point for well under $80... but if you want 5.8GHz, the price almost triples... and now a cute little camera that will see very limited sales due to them intentionally limiting any 3rd party support)
Oh well. As long as they keep making the M5 long range links, and their cool little Unifi APs and EdgeMax routers, I'll be happy with them.
