Hi,
been lurking a bit around here and basically sniping my wheels looking thru vendors websites, and it has been very hard and confusing figuring out things, hence coming here looking for help.
A good system will cost money, that I already figure out as much, and although I don't live in a dark street, and installed a superbright led Defiance light, if the camera cannot capture with proper definition, then it is a useless system. IMO

I looked at Bosch, and right away my wife put the brakes on my thoughts of spending way over $500/$600....
so basically I could go with one starlight - Bosch FLEXIDOME IP Starlight 7000 VR being sold at discounted price ( just need to by mounting case) or go for a Lorex system like this one:
https://www.lorextechnology.com/hd-ip-security-camera-system/8-channel-ip-security-camera-system-with-2k-resolution-cameras/HDIP82W-1-p

what I was thinking would be to combine the bosch starlight above with a different lorex system:
this one
https://www.lorextechnology.com/hd-dvr-security-system/hd-surveillance-system-with-1080p-surveillance-cameras/MPX82W-1-p

this way I could cover completly my front yard - corners and center, and still have a night vision capable camera, that is if indeed the boasch can be connect to the lorex dvr...
can find any answer for a setup like this..
any help, guidance will be highly appreciated.
Thanks
Phil

House details:
25'x25' wide/long driveway + 6 ft sidewalk + 30 feet wide street with 30' high street light across
35' wide lawn, by 30 long - from house corner to side fence is about 14 feet or so
security light above garage doors/driveway center
- my setup idea:
one camera at northern corner, the bosch at the center(past the driveway) and a third camera at the house southern corner

For the money, you'd be better served to purchase something like this. The quality is much better.

HI SWCP,
thanks for the reply
I went ahead and got the Bosch domes, as was getting no replies
I think I got a great price for the set ($400), and they are as brand new, just old stock. Struggling a little bit with installation and such, but I am almost there - need to find a 2.5mm jack cable to an lcd screen/tablet usb port connection, so I can setup cameras.

Will be using my old HP workstation with windows 7, and two HD - one regular and a purple/security type. Just not sure yet about the recording modes;
is there a cheap or free software that allows 24/7 recording? Bosch gives the viewing one for free, but I don't think it allows for a full recoring capabilities.

Thanks for the info - they look good, but don't seem to have the much of low light ability as the bosch.
eventually I might add up two more cameras, and these two could be a good choice, as I don't like so much the Arlo pro II at Best Buy
