Remember:
  • DO NOT port forward - unless you want to be cyberjacked
  • Turn off UPnP on your router ( manually set what you need configured )
  • Turn off P2P on your router
if you need remote access to the camera feed run a VPN server on your router. ( an install the VPN client on your mobile device, remote PC .. )

A security camera system is not an alarm system - so also remember to get an alarm system.


For those new to security cameras, please see the following references:

Hi Giran99,

Just buy the next kit up, normally the price per camera is cheaper when you buy the kits.

Also, imho you will always find that you should have bought more cameras in a kit than less.

( i.e. if you think you need 5 cameras, get the 6 camera kit )

Thanks Sure so this camera that I listed will work with LV-N9616D6E

Hi pcgamer4life

In terms of deals - see my post here:
https://slickdeals.net/forums/showpost.php?p=126226522&postcount=13

Remember though, you really want to 1st determine what you functionally want / need and then look for kits which may meet those needs - and after looking, determine what you're willing to compromise on.

Normally when finding deals - you'll have to compromise on some aspect, and even if you're willing to throw $$ into it - I have yet to find a perfect kit.
Thanks! I'm no stranger to self-hosted stuff and homelab and have tossed around the idea of building my own kit, but the out-of-the-box solution is appealing to me right now. Really the only must-have features for me are standard POE, 1080p or better, and decent quality at night. Audio would be a plus for at least one camera at the door, but not a necessity.

If I were to roll my own kit, are the ones in the thread you linked decent enough (minus audio), or is there something a bit higher tier you might recommend? I have a 2x Xeon 12 core/128gb RAM ESXI host that would happily run Blue Iris or similar so I can afford to spend a little more on better cameras.

Hi pcgamer

So - it is always possible to spend more and get better... just like building a PC ( Ryzen 5 1600 looks good.. wait .. Ryzen 5 2600 even better.. wait.. Ryzen 7 2700x.. yes.. oh a new one is coming out!?!?! - lol, we all have gone down this path .. )

Blue Iris and VMs ( virtual machines ) - iirc that is not a recommended setup, and xeons may not be recommended due to Blue Iris doing multimedia related compute in the chip. ( you'd need to check the xeon chip - some are significantly worse for BI compared to i7s )

The Q-see camera is a good decent one to start with, you can always add better cameras to cover the more critical views. I also liked the Swann 5MP cameras - but that deal has wrapped up.

For the front door, even if getting the Q-see cameras, I really like a Dahua OEM 2MP starlight mini-dome wedge at eye level. Has a microphone to record - but no speaker - so you may still want some sort of intercom device.

Hi Giran

Look to see if LaView has a compatibility list for that NVR.

Also you can check if the NVR is listed in their custom build page
https://www.laviewsecurity.com/bu...t-2-0.html

Note - I think they have a typo on that page.. a "5" instead of a "6" in the model
LV-N9516D6E -> i suspect it is your model .. check the links

See what cameras are listed there - they should be compatible.

Hi Ohio

You need a camera which has a microphone or a microphone input.

I too am considering a roll my own but I don't want to use blue iris. I am reading up on shinobi as it is open source software and I feel more comfortable with open source than proprietary software. I am thinking to run this as a docker container on a NUC and record to some USB3 drives. Do you know if I bought a system like this if I could use the DVR with shinobi or other software or would you end up tossing the dvr and using the PC for all that? I don't want to invest in something I will end up tossing. My concern with a dvr is that I don't know the video is encrypted whereas on a Linux build I could have encrypted drives.

Hi ewa

I do not know much about this particular kit.

If you plan to roll your own I would recommend: get decent IP PoE cameras and a PoE switch, and a PC, and bulk cat5e/6 cables, patch panel,...

Please see the last posts in the following for some deals recently posted here on IP PoE cameras

I think the PC is my best option. I'll probably get one cam to start and figure the system out and then buy 3 more cameras and pay for someone to wire up my house. I have a long list of requirements.
1. Object detection inside camera stream
2. Pushover support for push notifications with pictures
3. Recording to encrypted drives
4. Secure ssh/vpn into my network and loading of cameras with android app like tinycam pro
5. One high res camera that could read a license plate ~100 feet away.
6. Open source software without proprietary bits. I don't want my stuff going back to China. I worry about some of these chinese ip cams for that.
7. Efficient compression/recording. I need to research what kind of PC is needed to simultaneously record 4 streams all the time.
8. How to maintain power for recording during power outage (lower priority)
9. Recording to NAS and usb3 hard drive at the same time. This is low priority but in the case someone were to break into my house and steal the DVR system I would like a hidden recording I have access to.

I realize some of this might not be possible yet but I want to be able to grow into it without having to replace dvr's.

Because they will get cyberjacked and then used to pass kiddie porn or steal bitcoin...

all the security camera brands are known to have major security issues... and there's a lot more that are not yet published...
