Hope that helps. Never had any issues with lorex. In fact had bought with 8% rakuten and next day it was 15% they simply gave a label to return no hassles. Just my 2c
Quite happy with the purchase

What's required for installation? Does anyone know if this works with Chromecast or Google Asissrant? I'm hoping I can use one of the cameras as a baby monitor and my husband can install it if I buy this.

Get wyze cams. You can plug it into existing front and back door light fixtures using an adapter and it's always on and can loop record on a micro SD card . The cloud is free and saves 14 days of unlimited 12-15 sec clips of motion it detected and you can also access full recordings if you add the memory card and get longer clips. You can also have access to live feed from anywhere using your phone app. It's amazing. It has person detection so it tells you if person detected vs leaves rustling on a tree. You can even set the detection zone so it doesn't always send notification if it is a busy area like sidewalk next to house.STIGUY wrote: ↑Sep 18th, 2019 7:47 pmPlease send me a PM as well.
I've recently been looking at cameras and thought the Blink XT2 would be a good option (no subscription needed).
Realized changing batteries would be a pain in the ass.
I was also looking at the ring floodlight cams as I have a light I can replace in each place I would put the cameras but don't want the subscription.
Anyone have any experience with a camera that can connect to a light fixture outlet with 120v that does not need a subscription for recording?

I have 3 Hikvision Dome cameras installed. 2 in the front, and 1 in the back. In the front I have 1 4K with 2.8mm lens for a wide view from one corner of the house getting the driveway also. Other corner is a 4MP camera with a 4mm lens, facing right in front of the staircase, for clear closeups.. And another 4MP 2.8mm in the back.. All PoE connected to an old PoE switch I had lying around. If you don't have a PoE switch, you can always use an ethernet power injector. I also have a cheap amcrest 3MP dome in the garage. It still works fine (and it is one of my oldest cameras), but no comparison with the Hikvision.

Higher resolution doesn't mean better night performance. I suggest reading up wiki's in ipcamtalk or other forums if you want more info, put it simple, you would want hikvision darkfigher or dahua starlightslade wrote: ↑Sep 19th, 2019 12:03 amAll my wiring is run in my soffit and the attic, I only drilled holes to mount my cameras.
I’m still using a Lorex HD system , only complaint is night vision, and can’t really improve that without going up resolution.
I spent 12 hours doing my install so don’t think it’s an hour job.
