No system yet, looking for suggestions
Good day, my 1st post!
I want to put up between 8 cameras around outside of my home. I'm away a lot and want to be able to check home/yard anytime I want. I haven't bought anything yet, I was going to order some cat 6 cable and strt running it and then pick a system.
Here's what I'm thinking any suggestions:
- 2 cameras side of house (cable run 30 feet)
- 1 camera pool area (Cable run 50 feet)
- 3 Cameras on detached garage (Cable run est. 150-175 feet)
- 2 cameras front of house (75 foot run)
- All feeds to DVR with on-line view capability and motion sensor alerts
- Would also like a "switch" to turn recording/WiFi transmission on/off
Thanks in advance
Hi @bilsue85_501601524068533, welcome to the community! You may take a look at RLK16-810AB8-A, a 16-channel NVR security system with 8 4K PoE cameras.
You can run CAT6 cables up to 262 feet/80 meters around your home. To enable remote access, you will need to make sure that the NVR works on a stable network connection.
Also, you can set up a recording schedule on the system. Click here to learn more, https://reolink.com/product/rlk16-810b8-a/. Let us know if you have any questions.
Thanks Sor Much for the reply!
OK that looks good but I also see other reolink 8 camera systems for about a 1/3 less. what is the difference?
@bilsue85_501601524068533 The RLK16-410B8 comes with 8 5MP non-smart cameras. Meanwhile, the RLK16-810B8-A comes with 8 4K smart cameras. The latter offers much clear image quality and smart person/vehicle detection.
@reolink-lorenz ah, ok ill have to research the "smart" camera stuff. not sure if I need that for my application
@bilsue85_501601524068533 You are very welcome. With the smart detection feature, you will be able to customize the recording and alerts to the events that you care about only. Also, you will receive fewer false alarms caused by wind, shadow, or other background movements. Let us know if you have any questions.
