Where is the great Slickdeals security camera guy? Is he taking a little break? Usually he is all over these posts dissecting them and offering a solid review.

Been running this nvr system for more than a month. One camera died and got a replacement. The PIR sensor on the cameras are very useful to minimize false positives, but the sensor is either 1 or 0 so it does not take into account of your motion zone. Still better than cameras without it.

The spotlights on the 2 cameras come on at night when motion is detected, but they are pretty slow. I can walk past the camera and the light comes on behind me.

The cameras support ONVIF protocol so you can use it with third party NVR softwares. You can also use your own POE switch to run/power the cameras.

The mobile iOS app absolutely sucks. I don't use it at all. I have a Synology NAS with enough camera licenses to run these cameras so that's what I use.

Haven't used PIR for outdoor, how well PIR works with passed by or parked vehicles?
I might prefer those that analysis the video and allows setting motion zone, though they do trigger a lot recordings even because of changing of sunshade.

If the spotlight is slow, it looks more like the PIR detection is slow at night (it should be just a split of second to run on spotlight).

Passed by cars will trigger the PIR to the "on" state even if it's outside of your motion zone. If your motion zone at this time has motion (like a piece of paper blowing by), it will trigger a motion alert.

Change of shade itself won't trigger motion alert, unless PIR picked up something at the same time like a person walking by even outside of your motion zone.

Where I live there's typically heavy fog at night (they show up as some white lines going all direction) and it will trigger all kinds of motion alerts non-stop with all other kinds of cameras. These don't.

I believe you could probably setup a Wyze camera system that will do most of what this one does, and for way less money.
Does Wyze make power over Ethernet or outdoor cameras that are greater than 1080P?

Hint, no to both. I have a couple of Wyze cameras, but they are certainly not in the same league for resolution or intended for the same use and installation locations.

Are these the best you can get at this price? In the market and need a solution soon but there are just so many choices.
