This is normal price for their 4 camera 4 channel analog system with 1TB DVR. It would be a good deal for their IP POE system but this average for analog.

You'll have to drill through whatever the exterior your mounting the cameras is and then it depends on the other side. If it's in the attic, you'll have to have power in the attic for each camera or drill through the top cap and run the cables down to the wall into a room (would have to do this for the video either way), etc. If it's in an interior room then you can run the cables however you'd like as they'll just come straight though.

That being said, a POE system is simpler due to one Ethernet cable carrying the power and video so you only have to run one cable per camera and don't need external power for each camera (assuming the NVR supplies the power - most do).

Sorry cregoryyou, but you are wrong. The system comes with a Siamese coax cable that has the power and video cables separated at the ends. Meaning it is still a single cable all the way through in between the camera and the DVR. You won't need to have power in your attic, lol, power for each camera is plugged in at the location of the DVR. The only real difference, installation wise, is that you have to plug in a few more cables, however it's all done at the location of the DVR and the back of the camera.

True that IP systems are better in terms of efficiency, however you will pay the price for it. In my experience, EZVIZ has great video quality either way and for the price, a few extra cables to plug in is a small consolation.

Because those systems are so much cheaper. Remember this is SD after all.

Didn't see the Siamese cables.

Cusco, everything else I said applies except for the power.

I would suggest getting a UPS/battery backup in case power goes out so you still have recording camera footage. I have one for my security cameras and a separate for modem and router to ensure my feed is accessible at all times. A decent UPS should supply power for a couple hours.

In what way are IP/PoE systems more 'efficient'? It's hard to believe their PoE version is twice as much!
CCC says the average price for this system is $209.08 but the graph isn't loading for me for some reason.

If your eaves are perforated cut an x into that material and pass the wire through and into the attic.
If you can't navigate your attic you are stuck with drilling through a wall or coming up with another solution.

For those of you that are cheap like me and don't want to spend a lot on security camera/smart door bell check out the Wyzecam. I barely found out about it a week ago and haven't received it yet so I don't know how well it works but it has mostly good reviews.

That is a basic indoor camera. Fine if you want to see what's going on in your house but will not do the job of recording/monitoring the perimeter of your home/business.

See the reviews about privacy? "Why are your cameras sending data to non AWS servers? I consistently see UDP traffic (port 10001) heading to Japan, Germany, China + other locations.
IPs below
45.79.98.243, 45.32.19.31, 45.76.82.115, 106.15.0.207, 192.240.123.153, 192.240.110.98" "Since there is no way to use the camera locally without their app and just using a regular app like "ip cam viewer" that simply uses RTSP, I ended up putting an SD card on it and disabling its internet access by assigning an IP that is restricted by my router...

Well, to my surprise, the camera is CHINESE intelligent and decided to change its macaddress to a new one (completely different from the one in the back label) in order to gain a new IP from my router and regain internet access.

Definitely not a safe cam for indoors..."
