Hey mat2000,

After briefly reviewing ipcamtalk and learning how crappy most people feel the hikvision interface is, I decided i'll either be going synology or BI. Either way, that frees me from having to worry about missing this deal in lieu of a nvr kit. It seems the ds218j can record 4k just fine, and i will not need a super powerful processor because most of the tricks are on the camera itself. That's $150 for two cams, $150 for the NAS, $40 for a POE switch, and X for whatever hard drive i use. Not a bad intro price of $340 if you already have a HDD.
Use any crappy PC you can find with gigabit ethernet + ivms4200.

You can't just use any hard drive. Only use NAS or surveillance rated ones.

Hi nyknicks8, bigcat29, likeaw,

From past forum posts by SD'ers - LaView does not seem as good about posting tracking numbers, and when there's a big sale their turn around gets longer. Clearly they have some work to do compared to the e-commerce market leaders on this.
It just randomly arrived today. Never received a tracking number. Either way satisfied with the speed of shipping

Do you guys have any recommendations for cameras with two way audio??

Also will these work with synology surveillance station?? I don't see it in their list of supported cameras.

Hi Indian

There's 68 Hikvision 8MP models supported.. one of those profiles should work..

Is there a way to degrade a 4k camera for an NVR that's not 4k capable? Curious if I could run them like my 4MP cameras and upgrade my NVR later.

In addition to looking up the model Hikvision model number, you can check the specs on the camera itself. If it supports ONVIF (and I believe most/all of them do), you're good to go.

I have a Synology and I love it. Granted I have a 12 drive rack mounted version which is a lot more than most home users are going to have, but they make a great product.

I'd also suggest getting a WD Purple or other Surveillance rated drive. They're tuned a bit because it's more important that the drive is continually completing what is supposed to be writing (so it doesn't miss the next bits of data to write) rather than be 100% accurate in the data that it does write.

Video streams can handle a small amount of video corruption just fine (it'll just be visible as an artifact on the video). However, what you don't want is the drive to lock up for 5-10 seconds because it can't write data while it remaps a bad sector or something similar (and your entire video feed blacks out for all cameras while this happens).

Yes, depending on the camera you are looking at they should have a list of supported resolutions.

For example, the bullet camera listed in the OP supports the following:

50Hz: 12.5 fps (3840 × 2160), 20fps (3072 × 1728), 25 fps (2560 × 1440, 1920 × 1080, 1280 × 720)
60Hz: 15 fps (3840 × 2160), 20fps (3072 × 1728), 30 fps (2560 × 1440, 1920 × 1080, 1280 × 720)

Not sure about your NVR, but the Laview NVR allows you to configure your stream (main or sub) and the resolution of the camera down to 720p. That is the LV-N9508Q8E which was on sale before. It is in the video/audio settings. I have not verified this with the 4K camera but works on the 2K fine.

Hi Matt and others, I have this Lorex system: https://www.lorextechnology.com/4...P1612W-1-p

I need to add 2 more cameras to my system. Do you know if the cameras posted here would be compatible with the NVR? Thanks!

I really wanted a synology for the "set it and forget it" similarity to a NVR, but it seems their bottom of the barrel 218j rarely sells for a bargain, even on the used market. I ended up picking up a 4th gen i5 with 8gb OptiPlex for $90 shipped. I doubt i'll be able to do any better. Hopefully setting up blue iris doesn't make me want to tear my hair out.

Hi pdev007

That Lorex NVR is a Dahua OEM NVR
These cameras are Hikvision OEM cameras

Thus - they do not share their OEM APIs and you'd have to see the ONVIF conformant levels and see how compatible the cameras would be with the NVR using ONVIF settings.

iirc both that NVR and the cameras here support ONVIF to some degree - so you can at least get video recording to work. You'll want to check if motion detection is included ( again, you need to check the ONVIF spec versions )

Ideally I would stick with a Dahua OEM camera with that NVR.

LaView does have Dahua OEM cameras - see their Saturn line up, or check ipcamtalk's recommended Dahua OEM vendor for a Dahua OEM 2MP starlight model if you need low light. ( some Q-See models are also Dahua OEM .. Montavue is Dahua OEM, as is Amcrest,.. )

Hi shremi,

Hikvision makes a lot of various OEM cameras, some are standard IP PoE cameras - and while they have cyber security vulnerabilities I don't recall those "phoning home" ( the ones configured to use P2P probably do use Chinese servers - so see the next section )

In general, for ALL internet connected devices do the following ( especially security cameras )

1) Disable UPnP on your router
2) Disable P2P on your router
3) Use a VPN server on your router ( openVPN is included with ASUS routers so you can run it as a service that allows you to remotely connect )
4) DO NOT port forward ( asking for trouble if you do )

see the security notes at ipcamtalk.

If you have political issues with Hikvision ( see ipvm site for this ), Dahua imho is better.

Of course ubquiti is a US company and thus will do better imho on the software, however you will not get as good of a value on the hardware ( compared to even getting Dahua OEM cameras ).

Yeah, there's a compromise on just about all security cameras systems.

Hi Matt, stupid question. How am I supposed to find the Hikvision model number that corresponds with this camera? I see the LV camera is LV-PBK80804C .

EDIT: JK, I just googled the name with Hikvision and it came up. Same looking camera so figured it was the same. Do you have a recommendation for a camera with two way audio though?

Just one other thing to add to this bit. If you plan to run a Plex server on your Synology then you'll have to go into the Plex settings and manually configure the port you want to use to access it from outside your network. By default Plex won't be able to set up remote access because uPnP is disabled.
