Home Mounts and Tripods for Foscam Pan and Tilt Cameras

My first purchase of this brand was the Foscam FI8910W Indoor Pan/Tilt Wi-Fi Camera.  A good camera to customize but somewhat difficult to work with.  Unlike consumer oriented cameras such as a Nest Cam, these are made for customers with an IT background.  It’s not something that you can intuitively setup and get working out of the box without reading the instructions.  Even after reading the instructions, you need to poke around the internet to find things out.
