Don't let the boys at IP-Cam-Talk lead you to believe Blue Iris is the only solution you need (as it appears they work for Blue Iris).

Had good luck so far with this NVR using 3rd party cameras.

Note:
1) Hard Drive Not Included
2) If you plan on using non-Amcrest cameras, would recommend getting an external POE switch or injector to configure your 3rd party camera (setting up camera settings/resolution and "10.1.1.x" IP and subnet/etc ) then connect to the Amcrest and manually configure it under "Customirzed" camera.

That is what I was hoping to avoid and why I went with this. Another reasons being I wanted to simply connect it to my TV for quick viewing and not have to deal with login, Windows update, screen saver, paying for all the needed items like PC, BI license, POE switch and BI app.

I have. I tried Reolink's NVR and found that to be pretty bad (specifically for third party cameras, web interface and mobile app where the Amcrest wins in each category ). This Amcrest is pretty stable and offers pretty good 3rd party camera support, if you don't mind taking the time to tinker a bit. Amcrest cameras should have little effort to setup.

Great support for your claim. You must be a IPCamTalk "Moderator" : )

Or can you recommend a non-BlueIris NVR?

Yes that's the advice form IPCamTalk. I personally usually get Lorex systems but no good deal atm. I'm in need of another system myself.

Yea, had a Lorex, Apple forced updated my iOS/phone and that broken Lorex's app and Lorex stated they weren't going to support my Lorex DVR's mobile app. So not going with a company the forces you to buy new hardware for app support.

I've been using Shinobi, and it's been amazing for me on my low powered Linux NAS box. It runs on Linux and its free for home use and very light weight.

I went the PC route (picked up a used i5 6000 series CPU) and initially tried Blue Iris. Had performance issues and found Milestone Xprotect Essential + [milestonesys.com].

It's free for up to eight cameras and the more "generic" ONVIF profiles have worked fine for my Dahua cameras. I was even able to get the XProtect software to pay attention to some $20 Wyze Cam 1080p (those little cubes) after flashing the RTSP enabled firmware.

Sadly they require a Windows OS box, but otherwise it looks like an excellent alternative!

why the hit job on blue iris? I've been using blue iris for almost 10 years trouble free, recording 8 different cameras and I couldn't be happier. Once you dial in your PC, it takes very very low resources.

Hell, I even setup a blue iris PC for my parents who are not computer savvy at all, and they use it to monitor their summer home and their main home. I even get clips emailed to me when my dad sees animals doing funny things.

Amcrest is just rebranded Dahua FYI. I installed at two locations then stopped buying them once I learned they are Dahua (blacklisted by federal govt last I heard).

Install was easy, everything worked over POE. UI is your generic chinese DVR UI with some bad translations here and there. Not user friendly at all when trying to save a backup video file. It's some weird format that requires 3rd party application conversion to mpeg.
