Please see the following wiki for information to help you install the cables for a wired IP PoE security camera kit, as well as considerations of placement of cameras. ( less than 8 feet high to get better chances at a good ID image )

Remember to use dielectric grease / gel on the connections to keep moister out and reduce the chances of shorting your cameras

Relik posted some good references, thanks!

Costco updated the item to backordered status and it can now be ordered again, so I placed an order. It currently shows a 2 to 3 week shipping time and your card will not be charged until it ships. They will however do a preauth at order time, so you will have a pending charge on the card.

Maybe un-expire the deal again?

UPDATE 1: I believe I tracked down the 2 camera models that are included in the bundle. Both do have built-in microphones. They are disabled by default for legal reasons and can be enabled via the NVR.

1 x LNK7000 Series NVR, model LNK71082T

Manual in PDF : https://www.lorextechnology.com/d...R1_web.pdf

2 x Dome 4K Camera, model LKE383A

Specs: https://www.lorextechnology.com/d...ecs_R1.pdf

Product page: https://www.lorextechnology.com/s...Series-1-p

Quick Start Guide : https://www.lorextechnology.com/d...R1_web.pdf

2 x Bullet 4K Camera, model LKB383A

Specs: https://www.lorextechnology.com/d...ecs_R1.pdf

Product page: https://www.lorextechnology.com/s...Series-1-p

Quick Start Guide : https://www.lorextechnology.com/d...R1_web.pdf

UPDATE 2: Here is the product page for the exact same NVR, but bundled with 4 or 8 2K cameras instead of 4K. There are numerous 5 star reviews so maybe this won't be too bad.

FYI - I went through the spec sheet of the cameras in the Costco Lorex 4k kit for $699-799 and compared it with this kit. Info here:

Thanks everyone, seeing some great interaction here with people helping each other!

Thats what makes a great forum.

Quickly, based on the thread so far

1) NVR looks good from the back as it includes alarm i/o ports - thats a plus.

2) Bullet camera spec, imaging chip is larger than many other cameras 1/2.3" 8MP - good news typically.

3) It is really a "4K" camera as it does 15 fps, which of course is a bit short of any proper 4K TV spec. This is typical right now for 4K security cameras - the ones we can afford are currently 15-20fps. Should be ok for most of our uses.

4) "Color night vision" - a bit of a marketing fluff term, as all cameras with enough ambient light should provide color. The camera spec sheet does not indicate what chip is actually in the camera, but the larger size of the chip should make it a better camera for low light provided they used new chip tech.
( the Dahua OEM starlight cameras at 2mp should still beat this camera )

5) Metal case? - very important question for me, while for many of us it may not be as great of an issue since all the Ring, Nest, and Arlo cameras we have been using are "plastic" cases. I do like the larger squarish bullets as they have a nice solid metal case.

6) Turret vs Mini-bullet here - both work well, some like the turret better for various reasons.

7) The cameras may not officially be ONVIF - however we have found that some non-ONVIF listed lorex cameras do have a available rtsp feed and thus will work with Blue Iris.

8) I expect there to be a web interface on the camera - and it should be accessible similar to the other Dahua OEM lorex cameras in the other kits we have documented here on SD.

9) Remember if you want fancier features, Dahua OEM cameras have a feature set labelled as IVS ( Q-see calls them IVA ) and those are disabled in lorex products, you may need to look at pricier Dahua OEM cameras. The IVS features are better than normal motion detection. Note the motion detection in the lorex cameras here should allow you greater control than others. Also note motion detection tech is not yet as good as we would like it to be.

Over all the kit looks decent, and looks like you should be able to add some Dahua OEM cameras you can source from chinese vendors - I like to add Dahua OEM 2mp starlights, as they get better low light images. 8mp cameras are great for daytime events, and these 8mp cameras should compare well to other wired cameras you may buy in a kit.

Big plus, if you're on a tight budget these cameras will beat all those cloud dependent setups in terms of quality of image as well as reliability.


I think this kit works well for someone in a modest or smaller home / house - if you have a large place you may want to be able to add more than 8 cameras to your setup.

Nice price. Just what I needed (4 cam system). Most of the others are 6 or 8 camera systems which run atleast $700.

Are there any online $25 of $250 costco.com coupons available in store?

Can't find if these are metal housed cameras. They don't look to be as high of quality as other Lorex cameras.

Wish it was easy to run the cables through my house, I'd think about getting this if it was...and sell my Arlo Pros (maybe not all of them, they can still serve a purpose).

I guess I'll start looking through the home this summer and see if there are any easy routes to hardwire cameras in case deals like this come around again. I think as of right now there is only one spot that probably has an easy route, the others are kind of far.

Questions...

1. what's the longest that the Cat5e cable can run to use on one of these cameras? I think one will have to be more than 100 feet.

2. Can these dome cameras be mounted on the side of a wall or are they only to hang from a ceiling type mount? Not sure how far the cameras can swivel.

I think 300 feet is the limit with digital IP. And yes you can mount these on a vertical wall (at least the bullets can) they swivel all over.

Tried looking around and can't find that info either. Only thing I found was from the Lorex website saying "Its heavy duty housing is also well equipped to withstand vandalism as well, providing additional protection for safe outdoor installation."
