Not bad OP, but in today's technology, most are veering away to wireless and with more room to grow. Lorex may work for some...

great setup, but too bad it needs a siamese BNC connector to each camera. My existing non 4K setup just uses an ethernet cable, so I'd have to rewire the whole thing.

I didnt realize the prices for these are so reasonable - I have nest cams and it gets pretty pricey and doesnt even work that well

Anyone with experience with these types of systems?

If you wanted to, you can use BMC to Cat5 baluns. My previous house we wired with cat 6 and used baluns because it was going to be easier for our next system which would be POE.

Wireless cannot compete with POE and 4K resolution. And I have wireless cameras...I would setup a POE system but I don't really need one right now. Maybe my next home.

EDIT: Just realized this system is not POE. But Lorex's DVR systems are pretty good.

Thanks - a quick check on amazon shows these BMC to cat5 baluns are about $20 a pop, so my 6 camera setup would add an extra $120. Is BMC the current standard vs POE?

I would say POE is the current standard. BMC is older.

POE is the best. I recently got the Lorex 4K POE system from Costco when they had $125 off. Very happy with it.

I've used an older Costco Lorex system that was 1080p. I thought it worked pretty well, but there was a period of time where their mobile app wasn't great. seems to have improved now. the experience was good enough that i have splurged on a new Lorex system for my current house, but haven't installed it yet. https://www.lorextechnology.com/4k-ip-c ...

Bought these from Costco, honestly, the camera quality is outstanding, cannot even be compared with blink or ring cams. It's a bit of a pain since it's not fully wireless and you have to route the power harness to the nearest outlet, but once you figure it out you're set for a long time. No need to replace/recharge batteries which is a huge plus.

How much was this? I'm moving into a new build next year so can do all the pre-wire I need before moving in

I was going to pull the trigger on that one, then I realized that Lorex has stopped supporting access from desktop (Windows or macOS). That's a deal breaker for me.

I haven't seen anything about that. I just downloaded their desktop apps a few days ago. https://help.lorextechnology.com/link/p ... obile-Apps I think it was released May 15, 2020.

$2486.89 after discounts, shipping and tax, in Ontario.
It was pretty pricey, but I'm really looking forward to getting it up and running. Hopefully over the holidays the install will be completed.

You have me genuinely concerned, but i can't find anything to support what you are saying. Even their upcoming systems seem to support a desktop client. Do you have a link to where you found this info?
