Hi Luludepp,

It is recommended to get a WD purple or Seagate Skyhawk.

I would get the largest you can afford, look for deals coming up during Black Friday.

Previous deals on WD purple from Fry's were $59 for 2TB $119 for 4TB... so look to match or beat those.

Can someone explain what kind of network switches can be used in between the NVR and the cameras? Does it matter if it's managed or unmanaged? Some switches which mention POE are > $100 while similar looking ones are much less.

Hi ImHighAsAKite,

You'll need to decide what you want to do with your security camera and the views you want.

LaView is Hikvision OEM hardware, so the hardware is good. The customer service from LaView could be better.

Personally I see the following optimizations:
1) Highest Res with a good camera during the Daytime -> thus 4K cameras
2) Best quality night time / low light images -> Dahua Starlight 2MP cameras ( Hikvision may have some competitors to these now )

There are so many variables to consider. This is a good deal, and if 4x 1080p cameras + 2x 4MP cameras work at this price point for you go for it.

I believe we will see more LaView deals from Newegg during the Black Friday time period, so you don't have to jump if you're not ready. You have about 3-4 weeks to figure things out more.

( I have a lot of notes in the lorex 4k wiki page to share with and help others who like me were completely uncertain of what to get. link below )

Hi Ryons,

This NVR has PoE ports, so you do not have to buy a PoE switch.

If you want a PoE switch unmanaged is easier - however does not give you options to make vlans - but then you can just use a separate normal switch for cheaper.

There is a good list of PoE switches here:
https://ipcamtalk.com/threads/poe...ist.23070/

I would look at options and wait for Black Friday deals if you have time to wait.

Quote from seanleeforever
:
POE is just power over Ethernet. basically allows you to skip the power connection for camera. so you can do it with a single wire instead of a power cable + something else. for this particular ones, it seems like you need POE switch if you add switches in between the camera and center unit.

that been said, in most home use environments, having to find power socket for your camera may be the least of your concerns. you are more likely having problem patching your network cable or video cable from all part of your house to the central unit. my personally recommendation is go with wireless camera for home use.
Hi Seanleeforever,

I highly recommend people avoid WiFi if you want a reliable system.

Yes, figuring out how to crimp RJ45 takes some practice, however once you've created a stable setup wired systems are very reliable compared to wifi.

I've got a big box of used garbage wire free and wifi cameras reminding me of the cost of schooling.

no doubt that Ethernet is better than wifi by miles, especially having another wifi system increase chance of RF collusion and therefore reduce your internet wifi's throughput and goodput. not to mention other things like security and stuff like that.

but...

people still use wifi because it is convenient. running a cable aren't always an option due to practicality reasons and/or aesthetics. this is specifically typical for 2 floor houses where you may want to have camera both upstairs. down stairs, front yard, back yard. and hide the camera in non obvious places (expect the Ethernet cable now becomes eye sour unless you are hiding in behind dry walls). for what's wroth, i run a wireless camera over a year and stability seems to hold up so far.

Hi Seanleeforever,

And that is why I have a bucket of garbage wire free and wifi cameras - as I persisted to ignore the wisdom of others here, insisting that wiring was not convenient.

Wifi can work for some, however that may require people who are willing to take the time to appropriately manage and invest in their wifi setup - or you can be lucky.

If you own the property, you can certainly invest in doing a good job wiring up a nice wired network. For some buildings it is fairly easy DIY job, for others a pita. Mine was a pita but completely worth it in the end. I should have done it sooner.

I own this POE system. It's a great package deal and running this system for more than 6 months, Laview manual is not that user friendly. I am still in search for how to make this work to see the live and recorded footage outside my home network. Any other experts comments on this aspect?

I agree 100% that a POE system is much better than a Wi-Fi camera system.

Note: Don't expect any audio from these cameras

HI Odyindfamily,

As this is a Hikvision OEM product I would start looking for notes / documentation on getting a Hikvision NVR to do that.

Remember there are attacks against exposed NVRs by numerous makes / models and you're going to want to use a VPN. If you have a ASUS router iirc you can easily configure OpenVPN on it. Other routers may also give you that option.

Also remember to change default passwords.

Hopefully someone with better knowledge of the Hikvision / LaView NVR can give a more exact answer.

I've got some notes in the 4K Loerx wiki which maybe useful even though it is discussing a Dahua OEM product - notes including a link to a VPN article on ipcamtalk ( or you can search ipcamtalk )
