Surveillance systems...

I need to install surveillance system into my building.

I'm doing my due diligence and can use some help.

Right now, just as a base start, I'm looking at the Reolink 4K UHD 8MP PoE Dome Security IP Camera with Audio Recording with 16 channel NVR.

This system isn't from any experience, just from watching videos and trying to decipher what I need.

Any comment on my pending choice or do you have a better system that you can recommend?

I can use any help I can get.

So many questions....so much money I do NOT want to spend!

5MP PTZ which is the E1 PRO Zoom. I have it connected to my onvif NVR with the various other cams I have. You should endeavor to get cameras that support the rtsp and onvif protocol if you want to record locally.

I'm shying away from onvif. I need this system go work and it's in another building. Can't afford to debug it on a constant basis.

How is the quality of Reolink compared to Hikvision?

Is there another company that compares and better pricing?
