security systems installation
I am considering adding an NVR to my DIY NAS NVR system and this would be the perfect addition. PROS:Excellent image quality with 4MP camerasWide 3rd party camera support through ONVIF standardIR LEDs provide night vision capabilityGreat value for moneyCan record at 8MP 4K resolution, and output 4K over HDMICan record simultaneously to more than one hard drive for redundant storageUSB Backup featureLaView will customise the kit to your exact needsCONS:NoneCheck Price on AmazonBack to comparison tableOther popular NVR KitsToo many compromises: Zmodo 1080p 4 channel NVR Kit with 4 1080p PoE cameras and 1TB hard drive NVR Features4 channel recording @ 1080p supportedPoE but with proprietary cables1TB hard drive included, max. possible is a single 4TB hard driveMotion detection with email alertsRemote smartphone accessIP Camera Features3 axis black colour camera2MP CMOS image sensor 1080p2. 8mm lens10m IR range, true IR cut filterUSB to RJ45 connectorWeather proof The Zmodo really has the potential to be the budget king, and challenge Reolink’s dominance at the entry level. Where do I begin?Bizarre design choices such as using a micro USB cable and camera connections instead of regular old network
cables and RJ45 ports, and deceptive marketing which then calls this a “network cable” which it is anything but!I have never ever seen a “network cable” that has one RJ 45 end and a USB connector at the other end. Hi Steve, thanks for dropping by!I call these NVR kits the EasyDIY solution to home CCTV but my preferred option is FullDIY where I run everything off one small NAS box, my QNAP TS 253A. I have 4 cameras and the QNAP Surveillance
Station takes care of my needs nicely with redundant storage and an OpenVPN server all for under $500. The QNAP Surveillance STation software hasn’t changed much in the last 3 years but its reliable and does the job. You can check out a live demo on this page. It should give you a taste for the software. Synology is another option but I haven’t tried it personally.
