Looks like this cheaper system uses Analog RG59 BNC cables versus PoE in the original post

Indeed, looking at the prices on the lorex.com website and what you are getting, I HIGHLY recommend you go into your local B&M bulk stores and see what they have in store. I have seen deals at the B&M which are significantly better than what they post online.

For a bit more than the price of the coax security camera kit you found on the lorex website you can get a decent POE kit. Unless you already have coax cabling setup for a security camera system I would recommend going POE.

Also note, security camera systems are a lot more complex than I first thought, and often require more work to ensure you get the appropriate coverage for what you want. Do test out the spots you plan to put the cameras up with perhaps a camera secured to the end of a broom handle or the like to see if the view works - often you may need to adjust the locations slightly due to the results of testing.

Thanks zayababy and mat2000
Happy to help coolvijik - btw drop by your local B&M costco asap and checkout the security camera kit section - a number of us have seen a 4K 6x Camera Lorex 8 port POE System for $800. It looks like Dahua is the OEM and you can add 2 more cameras to it. ( The Lorex website looks like the price is a LOT more .. not certain if it's the same model numbers, will have to check next time I have a chance )

I bought the one at costco B&M model lnr6826k for $800 with 6 cameras. Should I return this and get this one with 8 cameras instead? I live a semi detached house. Is 6 cameras or 8 cameras enough? I havent setup the cameras yet but isnt ultra hd 8mp cameras too much? Specs says it only records at 15fps. 15fps is too low in my opinion.

Thanks for the info.

Keep the 6x 4K camera kit - it is a great deal imho, and it will be hard to find a better deal right now. ( iirc the cameras themselves are going for $300+ separately.. crazy MSRP on them right now )

15fps is fine for security cameras - remember this is a security camera system not an action camera.

At 15fps your HDD gets 2x more ( vs 30fps ) elapsed time of video stored with little loss of actual information, and remember if you really need 30fps you can run these cameras at lower resolution and get 30fps.

If you need additional cameras you can get 2 more IP cameras and set them up.

With these 4K cameras ( iirc at about 90 degrees FOV ) you should get good coverage during the day, I would consider getting a couple of dahua cameras designed for the low light and see if they work with this system.

Remember to bench test this system before installing it, and test the locations you plan to place the cameras for their views. To ID suspects place at least a couple of cameras 8ft or less at angles to get good face images.

For those of you that use NVR / DVR security systems and use local hard drive for storage, how do you hide your NVR box (with the hard drive inside)?
I worry that if a thief breaks in, he can easily take and NVR box with all the recordings with him.

I have mine mounted in a high location in the garage with some metal straps screwed in to studs to hold it down. If they had the time and wanted it bad enough they could get it but it would involve first finding it, then getting to the height of it, and then having to take bolts out to unstrap it. 99% of the time they are just trying to get in and out as fast as they can.

Thanks! I think I will have to do something similar.

Pardon my ignorance but:

1. Doesn't the NVR need to be connected to your router? Are you hardlining it or are you able to connect it wirelessly?

2. How do you view the recordings? Doesn't the NVR need to be connected to a display?
