Recommendation for security camera

I have 3 in my house. Wanting a 4th. Must work with my Synology NAS. Would like something that does a better job of filtering out false positives. Right now, I get a security alert when the home phone rings or when the timer controlled lights come on.

While we are home, I might point it outside with the hope of getting video of the skunk, deer, raccoon, and whatever else visits.

DW has found the Foscam R4S. My browser finds too many choices. And there are so many choices that Synology can't keep up with the testing of new brands. In theory, any camera that supports the ONVIF standard should work, but....

I want to spend under $100. Any Synology users out there who have a recommendation?

Another issue is that Synology wants some absurd amount of money (maybe $100) to add extra cameras to the NAS (above 2 cameras). I don't want to set up a separate server for this. What do you Synology users do?

Thanks.

Have you looked at Wyze camera's , at $20 each they are a great deal.
They work great.

They don't meet your requirement of Synology NAS straight out of the box, however it is reported you can sideload them to add that functionality.

I haven't done it, so can't say anything more about it.

within this post, is a subtle link to wyze camera support detailing adding support for RTSP to the camera:

I have 6 indoor Wyze cameras, but I have one mounted outside. Very good. They have outdoor cameras now, but Iíve had one of their indoor cameras mounted outside for 9 months with no problems caused by weather.

I have them set up to send me notifications upon motion. I have some difficulty sometimes getting the video clip on my cell phone. But I think that is a cell service issue.

I can see live feeds whenever I want too unless Iím out of cell phone coverage.
