I had already been saving so it was a slam dunk for me. $300 off and packed with features, I thought for sure others would benefit but this doesn't seem to be getting much traction.

FYI - I have added both the bullet and dome from this kit to the list:


ID spec distance and associated area max covered calculations ( 100ppf+ ):

This is the theoretical max based on raw pixels from the horizontal resolution and the FOV.
Actual real world results will be decreased due to the quality of the camera ( glass vs plastic lens, compression quality, sw/firmware,... ), installation view, as well as environmental conditions ( low light, haze, fog, glare off snow, water rain,.. ).

Practical meaning: Place your cameras in such a manner that any suspect / subject you wish to potentially ID is within this ID spec distance, as well as in a placement which will give you a high likelihood of obtaining a good facial image ( mount camera 8 feet or less high ).

compare to:
Ring Video Doorbell 720p at 160 degrees: 4.08 feet { 23.23 sq feet covered }

My kid is buying his first house and I'd like to get this for him...my question is who would I get to install this. I do NOT want wires all over the house so no to a self install, but when I looked for 'installers' for home systems, all I found were the ones that come with the monthly monitoring (which I don't want/he can't afford). Did you install yours? (if so any tips on how to keep the cameras that are installed outside from having to come in thru a window?) Do you think that an electrician should be called to do this? If so do you have an approximate cost for the installation. Thank you again. Still contemplating this purchase but don't want it to sit in the box or clutter the house with wires around the baseboard. Also last question. Is there a way that the footage could be viewed from his smartphone. I did notice that the system required(?) a router or a modem (I don't recall which) so I'd imagine this was for remote viewing since the cameras are wired. Thanks in advance for answering the questions if you are able and also thank you a bunch for posting this. It is exactly what I THINK he might need.

"2) Hiring a contractor:
Recommend looking for A. securty cameras and/or alarm system installers or B. Electricians - a good one should be able to do a very nice job. Expect the price to vary depending on the complexity of the job which will be mostly dependent on the construction and layout of your building / house. Expect the quotes to vary a bit, and expect the work to start early in the AM if it will be a hot day."

There are more notes there which also would apply to this system.

BTW - a good DIY job is possible, just depends on if they are willing to do a good job.

How does this deal compare to the other Costco deal available in stores?
https://slickdeals.net/f/10409612-lorex-dahua-oem-6x-4k-8mp-security-camera-system-w-8-port-poe-ip-nvr-2tb-hdd-kit-at-costco-b-m-ymmv-for-799-99?v=1&src=SiteSearch

It has more cameras and a larger hard drive for storage, but if we only need 6-8 cameras which is the better deal in terms of the images it records. Do the dome cameras rotate? Will probably be buying a camera system in the next month. Thanks

Hi Usna2011,

The 4k / 8MP kit is a better deal for price, both are good systems - neither is perfect ( nothing is in this space ).

The 4K / 8MP cameras give you better range vs 4MP cameras, please see the ID distance calculation.

The 4MP domes are good for indoors - not outdoors - and they like the other cameras are fixed in place one you manually set the angle you wish them to be at. ( That is the dome cameras are not PTZ - Pan-Tilt-Zoom - PTZ cameras cost more for the same quality optics and processing power )

I've put a lot of notes on the 4K / 8 MP camera which also applies to this system, so please do check out the info there which I hope helps you with the installation.

Hi Firelikeiya,

Thankfully vg92 knew the answer to this kit.

btw - the cameras in the 4K lorex kit are metal housings with a plastic visor and bottom shell, so if having a metal housing is a critical part of your check list do take a look at that kit.

Thanks. I was about to buy but I'm going to pass. Polycarbonate doesn't hold up well in the AZ sun, at least not as a structural component.

I was looking at the 4K kit previously. From what I gather on the Lorex site, the NVR is an older model and not compatible with newer cameras... is this true?
