Can it record at 8mp/15fps?

Edit: probably not because on lorex.com it is a 4K-7FPS category.

I thought about getting the 8 channel package from costco for 800 but this is way better in terms of quantity. The reviews are decent too. Should I wait?

Hi slickaroon,

Many of the DVR kits I've looked at on lorex.com have lower performing cameras compared to the NVR ( IP PoE ) kits. Of course, the NVR kits will typically run you more $.

While some professional security camera installations may only do 7fps I prefer also to have at least 15fps for the max resolution, and thus agree with you that 15fps+ is a very good requirement today.

That noted, I see the specs I cut and pasted above to show the cameras can do 15 fps at 8MP
"Resolution/Frame rate: 4K(8MP) @ 15fps"

So is the DVR the limiting factor? ( I did not check the DVR specs )

Hi rootdeals,

Take the next week and determine what your functional needs are.

Look at the ID distance list ( theoretical ) in the following past deal posts:
https://slickdeals.net/f/10409612-lorex-dahua-oem-6x-4k-8mp-security-camera-system-w-8-port-poe-ip-nvr-2tb-hdd-kit-at-costco-b-m-ymmv-for-799-99
and
https://slickdeals.net/f/12200566-security-camera-security-camera-system-black-friday-cyber-week-2018-master-list

We should be seeing a number of good deals around BF-cyberweek, so I would wait a bit longer and really take the time right now to write down what is critical for you.

Remember, imho one system does not do everything well. Definitely also plan to have a security alarm system, and I don't mind tossing in a cloud camera ( like the wyze ) for the front of the house..

Yes it would be limited by the DVR. 15fps @ 4K is still rare, especially on more than one channel.

Thanks slickaroon

Yes, see it in the DVR spec sheet now that I am looking closer at this kit:

D841_Series_White
Recording Frame Rate 8/16ch: 4K@7fps; 5Mp@12fps;
4MP/3MP@15fps;
1080P@ 25/30fps (NTSC)

I have a friend building out a new business for his wife and I was enlisted to handle all of the tech-related stuff (TVs, sound system, cameras, Internet access, VoIP SIP, PoS setup, etc). I told him to get this system for $650 but for some reason he cheaped out and wanted to go with an 8-channel setup from Zori for $175 less. Today after thinking about it, he wanted to go with my suggestion but the deal is dead. DERP

By the way, for anyone interested, Annke's software is getting really good now so for budget systems you should give them a look. All the hardware is very similar until you get into the $1000s; it's the software that makes all the difference.

Would you mind letting me piggyback off your research and ask what you would recommend as far as mid priced security cameras? My parents just had 9 tires slashed and a brick thrown through their bedroom window all over the course of 2 nights they live out in the countryside and are in their 70's so I'm worried about them and want to set up a security system on a budget.

Hi kdalla5

  • "they live out in the countryside"
  • "... 9 tires slashed and a brick thrown through their bedroom window all over the course of 2 nights "
  • "..want to set up a security system on a budget ..."

  1. Countryside => typically means longer distances that need to be covered and less ambient light. Thus you need better cameras.
  2. Attacks at night => need low light cameras
  3. on a budget => this potentially conflicts with 1, 2 as better cameras = more $

If you have some time review the links in the previous post above:
https://slickdeals.net/forums/showpost.php?p=131958814&postcount=6

also the ipcamtalk cliff notes.

If you're super tight on a budget and can wait a bit for the cameras to get delivered, this is a good low light camera at a decent deal:
https://slickdeals.net/f/13760750-security-king-dahua-oem-2mp-starlight-varifocal-motorized-2-7-13mm-2mp-ip-poe-turret-security-camera-143-96

If you need something decent right away at a decent deal then I would consider:
https://slickdeals.net/f/13780862-lorex-16-channel-4k-uhd-nvr-w-4tb-hdd-9x-ip-poe-4k-deterrence-light-cameras-costco-999-99

If you're good with IP address setups you can add a nice varifocal to the Costco Lorex kit to give you a longer ID distance. ( example the camera from Security Camera King, or some of the Dahua OEM 4MP starlight+ cameras - look at reviews from members at ipcamtalk )
