Remember to check out the older ezviz threads... looks like some ezviz kits are locked down making it a challenge for using non-EZVIZ cameras in a NVR or using EZVIZ cameras on other platforms to record.
( if anyone has good references on how to open up the NVR to accept typical Hikvision IP cameras or config the EZVIZ cameras to work with Blue Iris and the like - please do post that info here. )

I have similar NVR, the motion detection and what not is less than to be desired.

Even after firmware upgrades still makes a false notifications for silly things.

This is a good deal. But luckily I got my hands on the 4k version when the deal came around the second time at $200. I just tested to see if everything works, and it did. Then put everything in the box, gonna install it on my house when it's done building.

You should take this opportunity to run your wires in the wall while it's open.

Hi Club556, indeed listen to mb_pharoh and over cable!

In addition to security cameras and IR illuminators / motion detection sensors, check the following out for ideas

Thanks Matt! I always read what you have to say about security cameras! I really learned alot from you, I just want to say I appreciate it! I definitely will run the wires when the framing is done, still got some time. =)

HI SkinsFan

Good deal, however there was a lot of complaints of water seepage into the cameras on the amazon reviews.

Ideally if you can afford for a higher end kit I would recommend it as it seems that it will be hard to add non-ezviz cameras to this kit.

What are some good brands to look at for compatibility? TIA

HI cashmoney121,

2 of the largest OEMs of IP PoE security cameras are Hikvision and Dahua

So their equipment typically will be the best documented and researched. ( for example at ipcamtalk )

If you go with Blue Iris on a PC you can use either HIkvision or Dahua OEM cameras ( possible exception is the Hikvision EZVIZ which appear locked down.. )

If you go with a Dahua / Hikvision OEM NVR - try to match with the respective cameras for the best compatibility. ( ONVIF cameras will work - but may miss some features )

Example of some Dahua OEM brands
Montavue ( see their super deals - I was told some popular deals from BF 2018 have returned ) functionally the same as the Dahua OEM international model equivalents.
Lorex - also a dahua company now, and most of their stuff is dahua oem - but without IVS features
LaView Saturn line up
Dahua OEM international models you can find resources at ipcamtalk on purchasing them.
Amcrest also a Dahua OEM - but do double check as some cameras appears to be a lesser brother/sister of the Dahua OEM international model...


Hikvsion
LTS
Nelly's security iirc used to carry a lot of Hiks...
LaView - some Hiks - now a mix. Many of the Hikvision models they used to carry were lesser models which had limited features
Swann - older models were Hikvision... ( you may still find a few at swann that they are clearancing out )
ipcamtalk branded cameras iirc are hikvision


yes, it does get a bit complex..

Personally I went with the Dahua OEM cameras as they came out with better low light performers before Hikvision and the prices typically are a bit more reasonable imho.

Lots of ways to get a decent setup - none really perfect, so plan to get a
1) security alarm system
2) security camera system ( on-premise )
and
3) perhaps augment with a cloud camera or 2 for alerts...

really kind of sucks that there is not yet ONE good source for it all, though I guess it makes sense that each area has different functional requirements which prevent a smooth one system solution at this time.

( side note: both Hikvision and Dahua are Chinese companies which the US government no longer approves their equipment being installed in US government property .. basically they have a lot of potential security holes which can allow spies to entire the network - but then this is true of much of what we as consumers would be buying - nearly all the internet connected stuff we buy is full of security holes... sigh, just the way it goes - so block them from direct internet access and use a VPN server on your router if you need remote access. Hikvision iirc is partially owned by the Chinese government.. they really like to keep an eye on protesters.. )

Thanks Mat2000,
Just when I think I've grasp hold of camera/security knowledge the more I realize that I have not. Appreciate you taking the time to right this up.

Is it better to start with the alarm system then find compatible cameras or it doesn't matter?
Thanks again. I know I'll be back in need of your expertise.
