Lechange 8 Channel NVR with 4 4K Network Cameras
Frys#: 9477651 Model: NK88P042

Mfish has been watching the larger kit 8x 8MP/"4K" + 16 port NVR IP PoE kit for a deal from Fry's and noticed that today it went on sale at $899.99 ( sweet deal - see it here https://slickdeals.net/f/11726927-lechange-dahua-8x-8mp-4k-uhd-ip-poe-cameras-16-channel-port-poe-nvr-w-3tb-hdd-899-99-on-7-13-2018-frys )

This smaller kit is also on sale - good for those on a tighter budget or needing fewer cameras.

Very nice Dahua OEM kit.

Specs are very good.

Also see the larger 8 camera and 16 port NVR kit - which is also on sale. $899.99 https://slickdeals.net/f/11726927-lechange-dahua-8x-8mp-4k-uhd-ip-poe-cameras-16-channel-port-poe-nvr-w-3tb-hdd-899-99-on-7-13-2018-frys

Both a very nice solid kits, I prefer the larger one - think you're getting a better value with that.

Dahua OEM 2MP starlight cameras should work well with this kit.

Note: There is also a deal on the LeChange DVR / analog coax bnc kits - I prefer IP PoE so I'm recommending either the 8 camera + 16 port NVR kit OR the 4 camera + 8 port NVR kit.
Also note there is a 8 camera + 8 port NVR kit for $799.99 - and personally I think the 16 port NVR is worth the extra $100 as often we find that after some use you like to add just one more camera or 2...

Hi Mrhyde,

Yes, completely able to rotate and turn to the angles you would need,



Thanks Jweisbord,

Indeed the police ( especial detectives ) are a good source - that lead me to start researching further into security cameras, and as a result of I junked my Arlo system and setup.

Remember, to take a look at the wiki here on this deal for links - the "Costco Lorex 4k deal" wiki is LOADED with my notes, including "ID distance list" - the point to the 100 ppf mark which in theory if the pixels are 100% effective you have a potential to get a good ID image provided you get a good angle on the suspects face.

Use that table for planning your setup, remember the general rule to mount your cameras about 6-8 feet high for best results to get an ID shot.

Remember, embedded time stamps ARE important. Otherwise your evidence MAYBE thrown out of court.

Also

Please be respective of your neighbor's privacy and place your cameras in ways which help keep harmony with your neighbors.



Thanks Djsvelijo!

I found using tripwire functionality to be a very nice feature to use in combination with the motion detection. Note - none of this is perfect, so get a good alarm system to compliment any security camera setup.



Hi Nasty

Please see ipcamtalk for reviews and examples from Dahua OEM 8MP cameras. It will give you a good idea of what to expect. Also look at youtube videos. Remember, youtube does compression which may affect the final result. ( note I believe the cameras in this kit are versions of the Dahua OEM international model IPC-HFW4831E-SE )



Hi Shyqype,

I thought so too when I started researching more.

Turns out not an issue as long as the back plane supports > 100Mbps

Each PoE port is designed for ONE camera - in this kit the camera:
Bit Rate H.264: 24K ~ 10240Kbps
H.265: 14K ~ 9984Kbps

So 10/100Mbps covers that port well.

Note - the NVR w/8 ports in the 4 camera kit probably has about 1/2 the bandwidth capacity as the 16 port NVR - thus why, if your budget approves - the 8 camera 16 port NVR for $899.99 is a better deal imho.



Hi Orangelines,

The cameras in this kit will be like a Dodge Hellcat vs a Ford Fiesta.

Seriously THAT much of a significant difference in terms of performance.

Cloud storage - possible, but your bandwidth will get chewed up at 10-12Mbps per camera on continuous recording. ( hint this is why cloud cameras suck for quality of images - need to minimize bandwidth and cloud storage costs to nest and users )

Better to just send snippets to the cloud or your email.



Hi Flydeep,

If running 1 Gigabit networking, then you can put a lot of cameras on that link.
( est 10-12Mbps per camera... network overhead of 15-20% )



Hi Lastwords,

Numerous ways to route cables, for brick - go with bulk cat5e - drill through the mortar joint - mount a junction box ( PFA121 model ), and place the cameras on the wall about 8 ft high.

In terms of networking - it is an IP camera and NVR setup - so lots of flexibility thanks to IP based.

The easier of course is Camera > cat5e/6 > PoE port on NVR - I recommend doing this for most people as it is the easiest and simple, and more reliable as less equipment is included.



Hi Protech97,

Very durable cameras - re durability the MOST important thing is proper installation of the wiring to minimize moister.

This is why I really like junction boxes, silicone caulk, silicone stretch tape, di-electric gel, electrical tape. See the wiki notes and notes at ipcamtalk.



Hi Enix82,

10/100 is the spec per port - not the back plane. Aggregate bandwidth can be higher.

Note - I really like the 16 port version more as even if I only go w/8-10 cameras the NVR has more power.



Hi Jdebord,

update: See hypermillers catch - there's a typo in the specs when they converted to F
https://slickdeals.net/forums/showpost.php?p=117613551&postcount=60

I would recommend asking this question at ipcamtalk and see what experiences others have in cold temps.

I believe it carefully installed so that snow does not collect on the camera these cameras should be able to perform even a bit lower than spec'ed ( typically engineers use some tolerance factor when computing temp ranges ). You may have to install some sort of hood to reduce snow build up.

Note - SOME cameras do come with built in heaters - this one doe not.



Hi somefo0,

Audio - these cameras do not have a microphone. This is typical of your traditional security cameras due to legal issues associated with recording audio. ( wire tap laws ). The legality of recording audio varies state to state in the USA - so from a security camera operator point of view, you really need to be cautious.

Can audio be recorded on the NVR - yes, if the camera has a microphone audio will be included in the H.264/H.265 video.

Thus, you can augment this kit with a Dahua OEM camera which has a microphone ( like a Dahua OEM 2MP starlight turret model - most of those have microphones if you're looking at the better models, IPC-HDW42xx / IPC-HDW52xx )



HI Sms4001,

Alexa compatible.. well, you'll need to decide what is more important:

1) Alexa compatibility out of the box, ( or other smart home stuff )
OR
2) Quality image capture.

Seriously, the typical "supports alexa or ..." typically is in consumer grade poorer quality cameras which are sold at gigantic profit margins to consumers w/monthy subscription fees.

I do expect the better quality security cameras to embrace the smart home / voice control tech - it's really going to be a question of how much tax they have to pay to Amazon, Google, Apple for access to the APIs and the like ( damn you Oracle for suing Google on using the Java APIs!!! )

iirc these cameras do support Bonjour...

That noted, it is possible as this is a standards based IP camera system to connect it with something like a Blue Iris i5/i7 windows PC and additional software for Alexa or other smart home support.



HI Kaina,

update: See hypermillers catch - there's a typo in the specs when they converted to F
https://slickdeals.net/forums/showpost.php?p=117613551&postcount=60

Stop by ipcamtalk and ask for recommendations for colder climate cameras.



Hi Scohad,

Dahua and Hikvision are the worlds top OEMs of cameras. We're not talking about smaller companies here.

These cameras are not Chinese market cameras w/hacked firmware to support English. They are based on international models - and thus you should be able to get any firmware updates from Dahua International.

That noted - NONE of the security cameras or IoT related devices should be trusted and fully exposed to the internet. Too many cyber security holes.

Use a VPN and protect the cameras and NVR. ( if you are very concerned and do not need remote access you can run them isolated from the internet )



HI Ioki2k2

PIR? - Passive Infra Red is really not all that good, more of a gimmick from my experience. Hopefully it does get better, it certainly is popular with some.

No these cameras do not have PIR, and that's ok. The NVR should have alarm in/out ports and you can connect better alarm sensors to the NVR, so you can configure and connect better IR alarm sensors to the kit.



Hi Golfngals

I use a 1500W rated UPS to keep the system powered up for short term power outages. Very useful. The UPS alarm goes off when power dies.

Remember internet connection is not required, and your router may have the ability to log internet outages.



Hi A...

Can these cameras capture license plate images so you can read them. Yes.

Just like getting a good facial ID image - the reality depends on
1) Number of pixels on target ( I use 80ppf for license plate distance purposes, some use 60-70ppf. At 80 ppf that is 1.25x the ID distance on the list I've made )
2) Angle of camera to target. A straight on level shot works best.
3) Light, in low light conditions it will be very hard to get any license plates unless you tune the camera to JUST read license plates.
( it is an art form see the LPR section at ipcamtalk )



Hi Peste19,

Please see the wiki link I posted, notes there.

Most important:
DO NOT GET CCA cable. Get solid copper conductors.



Hi C_nitty,

If you need 4 more cameras yes, you can then put those 4 cameras on this NVR or one of the other NVRs.

If you're doing ok or only need another camera or 2, then just buy a separate camera ( like the Amcrest 8MP, or a Dahua OEM 2MP starlight.. lots of options )
5 Helpful?
BTW - if anyone wants to augment this kit with additional Dahua OEM cameras I would recommend Dahua OEM 2MP starlight models for good low light cameras. Adding a couple to cover the darkest or most critical areas around your home at night would be useful. For a vendor you can go to ipcamtalk and see the recommendations from members there. Remember to be careful purchasing from random vendors on Ebay, Amazon, Ali, as well as other online market places which may not properly vet their vendors. Always buy from recommended vendors to minimize chances of fraud by vendors. ( typically the big issue is deceptive ads - and not getting what was advertised - this is why I really have come to dislike zmodo / funlux )



Hi Bargain,

Similar - but actually a better camera and a a better NVR than the Lorex kits using Dahua OEM components. ( I think it is also better than the $450 Lorex kit which we don't know the OEM of yet )

The kit has the more advanced IVS functions retained.

Downside is that you don't have that Costco return policy - and would have to deal with Fry's for returns.

HI theothernguyen

That would have been very nice if they were, as I like turrets form factor better for some locations.

That noted - in general the type of bullets go for about the same price as the turret form factor from Chinese vendors of international Dahua OEM models. So this is certainly a good deal as they typically charge about $150+ for these cameras which they ship from China.

Hi Wheels498,

Yes, ONVIF and Dahua OEM cameras ( like the amcrest one ) can be added "manually" when they are not directly connected to the PoE ports. You will need to add the IP address, user/password, and maybe port info.

Note that the NVR in the more affordable kit(s) here are 8 channel NVRs can thus can handle 8 cameras.

Personally I would recommend the 8 camera kits if you need more cameras - as well as augmenting this kit with good Dahua OEM 2MP starlight cameras.

Quote from JONLIVE
:
Micro sd slot option??
Hi Jonlive,

Many of the higher end Dahua OEM models do include a microSD card slot.

While the specs iirc do not note this, I believe the cameras may have those slots.
( someone will need to verify )

Hi elBradford,

At this price point of any of these kits, you can setup a hybrid NVR - Blue Iris setup and get redundancy.

Seriously, the cameras along will run you $150+ each from Chinese vendors.

The other option is to get the Amcrest 8MP bullet cameras - last deal was about $125 each. ( those cameras have a wider FOV - thus shorter ID distance - still great cameras )

Blue Iris has a strong fan base - it's a good product, but you will need to get a good i5/i7 system + HDD + PoE switch, so plan to spend some extra $ for that.

HI TrungN3492

Do you have any sample videos or image captures you took?

How did you try to make it work via the internet?

Did you setup a VPN? or are you attempting to open the NVR to hackers by port forwarding?

Did you go to ipcamtalk to see the cliff notes which will guide you through the process?

Did you ask for assistance there or at any other forum?

This is the same Chinese OEM that makes cameras and NVRs for:
Amcrest
Lorex ( recently bought by Dahua )
FLIR ( who used to own Lorex )
Q-see
and others

I have their 2MP starlight models and they are excellent cameras, and know of numerous others who have the older version of this 8MP cameras.

Furthermore there are numerous examples of the video and image capture of similar Dahua OEM 8MP cameras at ipcamtalk.

It is a quality product, and yes it will take some setup time to configure - like any router, once you have it up and operational it will be reliable and a solid performer.

It is a great deal for anyone who is willing to do some DIY setup work. Seriously if you are capable of setting up an internet router this is a great value to get.
( it's really not that hard... we've got it well documented, even easier if your router supports openVPN )
