  1. I've read this one is locked down. Is there anything with a similar form factor that is ONVIF /Blue Iris compatible. I'd like to have a portable cam that I can place in my house and power off a USB battery pack when we are out of town. https://www.amazon.com/Wyze-Indoor-Wireless-Detection-Assistant/dp/B076H3SRXG/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=wireless+camera&qid=1571665183&sr=8-5
  2. I've got a couple clips in BI that I would like to make into timelapse videos for easier sharing. I searched and looked in the help section and didn't find anything. Effectively I want it to appear like when I screen through at 16x. Does anyone know a strategy to do this? I know you can set it up to record like that but these are existing clips.
  3. http://www.savgood.en.alibaba.com/ These guys have offered me the DS-2CD2232-I5 for $119 each so $525 shipped for 4. This is about $100 cheaper than the price for 4 from DSD. Has anybody purchased from these guys? Seems too good to be legit?
  4. Thanks for the wisdom.... Is there a logical step up? I am less concerned about the resolution but wouldn't mind spending 2-300 per camera if there was something that was much higher build quality and longevity. It seems, however, that 100-200 the current price point for an IP bullet camera and anything additional has diminishing returns and is just as likely to take a dump.
  5. I am new to this and have done quite a bit of research on here. There seems to typically be a Costco/Sam's IP camera package priced at 600-1000 that includes Cams and a NVR. Currently the only one on "sale" is http://www.costco.com/Lorex-8-Channel-Stratus-HD-NVR-Security-System-with-2TB-HDD-and-6-1080p-Cameras.product.100048576.html I can't tell by looking whether those cams are Hikvision, Dahua, etc but it definitely sees that going through DSD or some other direct supplier would be more expensive than the kit. Are those NVRs included junk? I have a POE switch already but the kit seems like the better value even if you outgrow the NVR etc. Any thoughts?
