    Selling a few thinigs

    To answer your question, Yes honeywell is rebranded hik's
  2. From Lorex Compatibility Notice The cameras are only compatible with certain Lorex NVR models. The camera is not ONVIF compliant and it cannot be used without a compatible NVR. Click here for a list of compatible NVRs. https://www.lorextechnology.com/hd-ip-camera/weatherproof-high-definition-bullet-style-ip-security-camera/LNB3143B-Series-1-p apparently the B and R are just different store cams, one is sold by costco.
  3. Don't know if this would help, but Lorex cams are all made by dahua.

    Best Hikvision alternative

    I have heard of alot of people switching from hikvision to the Dahua, since it has good video and starvis and also audio. Andi from aliexpress who sells dahua and gets them shipped to u in about 3-4 days is good, and he just posted that they are moving their business to the U.S. now. And free shipping. I gave up on hik since the only seller I could find was B&Hphoto. Heres his email Just email him what items you want and he will send you a statement via email, he also takes paypal, and prefers payapl over the aliexpress crap. kingsecurity2014@163.com http://empiretech01.com/ His amazon store also https://www.amazon.com/s?marketplaceID=ATVPDKIKX0DER&me=A329YQ83EBQGJF&merchant=A329YQ83EBQGJF&redirect=true Heres the ali store https://www.aliexpress.com/store/1200032 I am in the process of buying about 6 of these for my house, https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/IPC-HDW5231R-ZE-2MP-WDR-IR-Eyeball-Network-Camera-IPC-HDW5231R-ZE-free-DHL-shipping/1200032_32837850138.html?spm=2114.12010612.8148356.2.40a01f6blbcg7F No I am not affiliated with him, just seen alot of positive reviews about him from fellow people on cctv sites.
  5. These are the best, but they are not Bullets, being turrets they are more vandal proof and harder to notice. https://www.amazon.com/EmpireTech-IPC-HDW5231R-ZE-Starlight-Eyeball-Network/dp/B07B7K1P28/ref=sr_1_1?m=A329YQ83EBQGJF&s=merchant-items&ie=UTF8&qid=1530654488&sr=1-1 Andy is well known on other ip sites and is a great seller. These are not your general quality cams like you get from the box stores, these are actually professional grade. I am putting these around my house with a Blue Iris system.

    DVR that saves pictures?

    As @Tomcctv said. https://www.allgovision.com/face-recognition.php
  7. You either need to buy a new nvr or go blue iris, plus i think there is other programs out there but from what I hear everyone loves Blue Iris, ya can go max 64 cams.

    Looking for home security camera -

    Are you handy at doing installs yourself or are you looking for someone to put one in for you. If you can do it yourself, then I would recommend you buying the stuff piece by piece. I know of alot of people who buy Dahua cameras and either use a blue iris setup or a NVR, But you do not want to go analog, ya want a IP system, and for best night time coverage go 2mp max, unless you have a well lit area at night then the 4k is good. If you prefer Hikvision cameras, then you can buy those direct from B&H photo, but they are costly there.

    Camera placement

    I'm thinking ya would want the cameras above the leds since they might cause reflection on the cameras if the cams are in front. I could be wrong but we will see what the installers have to say. the reason I say it that way is because i have read many postings about led reflecting on cams.

    Camera/DVR Compatibility Question

    Go with a new poe system, its all digital with a NVR
  13. If you have lots of night light then a 8mp cam is good, but for low light stick with no higher than 2mp Dahua has a few nice starvis cams that can see with a very min of light and make it day. This is a great night camera, and its a poe system so it runs on your network not that bnc stuff. Just talk to andy, if ya wanna buy from Amazon andy has a store there also but the price is higher. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/IPC-HDW5231R-ZE-2MP-WDR-IR-Eyeball-Network-Camera-IPC-HDW5231R-ZE-free-DHL-shipping/32837850138.html Heres his email if ya want details kingsecurity2014@163.com
