I seriously doubt this was $800.00. When The 4k 8 cameras at Best buy are 800.

Edit: it appears that I didn't read everything, seeing that this bundle is wireless and the ones that I'm talking about are not. My mistake.

Carry-on.

The cameras are NOT wireless, but the system is wireless accessible.
Just want to make sure everyone here knows.

Still a pretty good deal. I have bought a system from them about four years ago and had issues with two of the cameras and their technical support is the best.

Hi Djkooldown

Actually according to the terminology used by the industry, these cameras are WIRELESS ( wifi )

They are not wirefree.. as you need a to wire these to power

wireless = wifi
wirefree = wireless ( wifi ) + battery ( or solar ) powered.

2 of my 4 4k Lorex POE cameras died after they switched app, probably upgraded nvr's firmware as well. These 2 somehow stuck at ip address 192.168.1.168 and can't be changed. I am disappointed with Lorex, but not sure if there are better choice.

The cameras are wireless to the base. (that's what the little antennas are for on each camera) However, each camera requires wired power. May be great for some as you only have to run cable far enough to get to an outlet and not have to run Cat5 all the way to wherever the base is.

If you want total wireless get Arlo. I have them and they work great for my needs. Some disadvantages come with the battery power but that will vary based on individual circumstances.

It seems that all cameras directly communicate with the DVR unit (which is also a wireless receiver) without going through a home wi-fi network. It is not a wifi based system. Is this correct?

Yes. That way your own wifi isn't congested with that massive amount of bandwidth four 24/7 cameras would need. The DVR (base) plugs into your router which then allows you access from your remote location or phone.

Clearly a shill, but interested nonetheless, I don't know that I've seen a WiFi DVR system at this price point.

And FYI, you'll want to hardwire power for pretty much any WiFi cameras, it's easy....power runs all over your house, but the DVR does not, making all new video runs a pain.

My only question would be regarding the reliability and replaceability of the hardware.

It's my understanding this can give you everything a cloud cam can give you without fees.

So basically, you are limited in your placement of each camera to the max distance the DVR can handle vs. a mesh network where the cams could go anywhere.

Yes, you wouldn't want 4 cameras running on your own wifi. Just too much bandwidth even for a good system. Lorex has a good idea here but I've not heard much good about the cameras. No personal experience with them.

This has to be promoted/boosted.
Lorex app based cameras are absolute garbage as I have posted about on other deals.
Got suckered into buying one on SD previously and regret it, they don't support the app enough to even have it install on any recent iOS.
Standalone security camera system MIGHT be less of a problem, but do not count on this company for having good/reliable support or decent product lifetime.

Hi wetdan

Did the firmware get jacked on the cameras?

Some of the Lorex IP POE cameras are Dahua OEM, and many you can reset to factory default. ( some it is easier with a button, others you have to short some pins iirc .. )
