I have a couple of TRENDnet TV-IP551WI Day/Night IP cameras that are pretty great. 

The IR isn't as configurable as I'd like, but works very well.

I have a Foscam  FI8918W cam too (but some of these have a firmware bug that crashes the camera, if the image is very white, IIRC)

The IR isn't great quality on the model I have, but it does work well.

But I would recommend against any of the Linksys WVC cameras. I have 4-5 of these. And when I have 3 or more attached to the network (over wired), it would crash my Linksys router's Wireless AP. This was on stock firmware, and DD-WRT. And with the router acting as just a router, or as an access point, 

That's why I can't recommend these. And I got them free from a friend that was more than likely having the same issue as me.

What I want to use the camera for is in an industrial environment to monitor a process while getting it set up. The camera won't be permanent, only while the process is being tested, so I don't need a true industrial camera. Possibly a usage out of character for most users here, but any suggestions?
