  1. I'm wanting to get an outdoor PTZ camera with around 10x or greater zoom on it to work with my Lorex LNR6108 NVR. I'm considering their LNZ44P12B and am wondering if anyone here has it. I like the color night vision, but where this camera is there will be pretty much no light at all (minus moonlight) I don't see any IR LED's on it and see no mention of them in the description. I'm trying to contact them but they haven't gotten back to me. With the Cyber Monday price of 374.00 shipped, I think it's a pretty good deal. Anyone have any input on this camera or a different one that will work for me?
  2. I have a Lorex 4K NVR (LNR6108) and I want to add a PTZ camera with a minimum 4x optical zoom. Lorex has PTZ control on screen and in their app, but will I still be able to use the same easy controls if I use a camera not made by Lorex? If so, does anyone have any other suggestions for a PTZ IP camera with minimum 4x optical zoom? I know Lorex has a couple, but I'd like to see some other options if the controls are the same.
  3. I have a Lorex LNR6108, although I think a lot of their NVR's should be the same. I want my cameras to record only when there's motion, not continuous. I went to Settings/Recording/Type and changed from continuous to MD but it still records continuous... Any suggestions?

    Cat and Cat5e?

    How about cat5e CCA, is that still bad cable? Like this stuff: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071ZHLSV1/ref=sspa_dk_detail_1?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B071ZHLSV1&pd_rd_w=pgk90&pf_rd_p=733540df-430d-45cd-9525-21bc15b0e6cc&pd_rd_wg=vV41e&pf_rd_r=PK87R433RWHCMHC388KY&pd_rd_r=ae74085e-535b-11e9-b8ff-1749bfa13380
  5. I got a new camera system recently and already had cat5e run to most places. I have one camera that I may want to run and there's no cable there. It's probably going to need 100'. I have the tools to terminate the ends if I need to, but where is a good place to buy one 100' chunk of cat5e? Is Amazon a good place to buy something cable? I found this cat6: https://www.amazon.com/Mediabridge-Ethernet-Cable-100-Feet/dp/B003RCEAB8/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=cat5e&qid=1553991818&s=gateway&sr=8-5

    Great idea. Worth a shot.

    Not sure, but I have an extra camera to run, and it already has cat5 there right now. If all I have to do is put on the correct RJ45 connector, that would save me a bunch of hassle.
  8. Can I use Cat5 instead of Cat5e for a 4k NVR system if the cabling has the correct RJ45 connectors on it, or am I going to notice a difference in video quality?

    Glad someone said it. Still, welcome... I guess.
  10. Nobody knows this answer?
  11. I come from a security system background as I installed them commercially for many years. I get them. You install door contacts, window contacts, motion detectors, glassbreak sensors, keypads, sirens, etc... When you leave the building, you arm it, when you get back, you disarm it. If you get a break in while you're gone, the alarm triggers and calls whoever is monitoring it, and they call the police. I now see that a box with a set of cameras, DVR/NVR, cables, etc... is being called a "security system." No door contacts, window contacts etc... I guess I get it, because now with being able to hook the DVR/NVR to the internet, when a camera sees motion, the system will basically call your phone, show you the activity, and you can decide to call the police or not. My old camera system wasn't able to hook up the internet so I'm not use to that, but I can see why its called a "security system" now. You can completely get rid of the monitoring center. Great idea and great technology. My old DVR took a dump on me and I don't have my new camera system yet. I've picked out what I want, (Lorex 4K NVR-LNR6100 and 6 LNB8005's) but I'm going out of town for a few days and it should be here when I get back, but I have a question about my new "security system" coming in a few days... How do I arm it? I have people coming and going all day long here. My wife works from home, I'm home all day long, we have people coming over all the time, my kids come and go. If I set the NVR to notify me every time it sees motion, I'll get notifications on my phone all day long. Is there a way to push a button to tell the system "Hey, we're going out for dinner and a movie, nobody should be coming in for the next 4 hours, notify me if someone does." And then turn that off when we get home? Maybe that's done through the app?

    Hello all

    Welcome to the forum!
  14. What's your budget? I'm in the research phase of upgrading my camera system right now.
