Can I use a IP Camera with Duet on a network with no internet?
I have a unique challenge where I need to be able to monitor prints using a camera however the system won't be connected to a network which has internet the entire time.
Is this possible?
If so which camera is best suites for it? I've tried using a NEOS smartcam however it needs the internet.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

presumably you will be on the same network?
if so any camera that is able to stream locally will work fine. you may want to check you can provide a static ip if your network doesn't provide dhcp.

@JustinCase Does the camera have to be on the same network as the printer, or can it have access to the internet via a different network?
@bearer thank you very much for the response. Yes everything will be on the same network.
I’ll start looking around for cameras which can stream locally.
@mrehorstdmd unfortunately there might not be any internet at all. The units might end up in remote locations.

Assuming you have WiFi on your internal network (LAN).
I built a camera out of a Pi Zero:
I didn't want to have lights on around my printer so I made sure that the camera had Night Vision capability (low light with IR illumination).
Then I used a DC-DC converter hooked to the 24VDC output of the printer to power it:
The housing I printed was from Thingaverse
The Software on the Pi Zero
You can then map the local IP address to your Duet for live view as well as save feeds directly to the PiZero or other network location.
