I thought I would ask this question here since I am amazed at the diversity of people here. Surely someone has some experience. I am considering purchasing a PoE Camera / NVR surveillance system for my home. I do not need it to be monitored. I have a regular security system for that; two, if you count Ginger, my dog. J I basically want two cameras watching the street and on all the time. I want one camera watching my front porch and another watching my backyard but only recording when sensing movement. Drug dealers have taken residence up the street. The police can’t do anything without evidence. There are kids and elderly on my street as well. Someone parked a stolen vehicle in front of my house a few weeks ago. The police asked if I have video cameras… Sigh… Anyway, I don’t know much about the systems but a PoE / NVR seem the way to go since wireless systems typically only record when sensing movement. (Blink systems.) I saw a YT video about Ubiquity / Unifi systems. They seemed too pricey. I have been considering these two: Swann https://www.swann.com/us/swnvk-885804#! Lorex https://www.lorextechnology.com/hd-...rveillance-system-with-8-cameras/HDIP841B-1-p The Lorex apparently has better night vision but the Swann better motion detection. The Lorex supposedly has good tech support but I can tell you that the Swann is lacking in this area. (I chatted online with them and it took me the better part of an hour to get them to answer the simple question, “Can I remote to the NVR from a computer on my LAN?” Frankly it was ridiculous.) Some reviews of the Lorex software / mobile applications hasn’t been great. There are cheaper options out there but I am a little bit uneasy about allowing access to my network from an unknown brand. Since this is something that is expensive and I will have to live with for a long time I am seeking any advice I can get. Thoughts?
