Very similar to the model you linked.

YI Dome Camera 1080p - White - currently £52.99 with 7% off voucher available

YI Dome Camera 1080p - Black - currently £52.99 with voucher that drops price to £31.99 !!

Only needs an SD Card to add modified firmware.

Worth a read.

I don't have this specific model, I own the smaller Yi Home camera that I got free in an Amazon glitch.

for Mrs Weaver being able to see guests arriving.

Monitoring cameras have been something I've been looking at for a while, but as yet I don't appear to have found anything that satisfies my needs and budget.  I definitely do not want to have to pay for cloud based storage which seems to come with a lot of them.

I highlighted the above quote, because you also said

I was thinking of having a baby-monitor type camera by my bed

What you may not be aware of (apols if you are) is that you may need 2 different types of camera.   The internal ones are no use for external monitoring of guests arriving.  I myself at one point thought I could perhaps get an internal camera and point it through the window.   Apparently whilst this may work fine during daylight, at night the glass will reflect the IR so you won't see anything...   this is something most manufacturers don't make purchasers aware of.

Thanks for warning me about that, thatís a mistake I would have been bound to make if I had gone for the proximity type units.

It's a mistake lots of others have made.   I quite fancied the Hive camera's and nearly bought one when they were on offer at a 1/3rd off thinking I could put it in the window to get a good view of anyone coming up my drive.  It was only when reading the reviews I saw someone mention the problem with IR at night and glass.   Then when looking at other makes specifically looking at the problems with IR through glass I then realised just how many other people had also not been aware of until actually purchasing and installing. :/
