Hi. My house has had a few packages stolen off the porch, and I am looking into getting a camera for the porch and floodlights over the garage. We don't own a dog but I'm also going to buy a beware of dog sign for the backyard. I have zero experience in installation. Any recommendations for the camera and floodlights? I was going to buy from ring but a lot of people seem to be disparaging of it.

Thanks beforehand.

Budget is maybe $400cdn.

I’m looking for a wifi camera solution. It can be powered with AC instead of battery as I have a couple access points to power where I want to place them. I would prefer a local NVR over cloud or subscription services. Cameras will be fixed in place and I probably just need two. Are there any suggestions from you guys with similar set ups?

Is it possible to move the Schlage smart locks that Frontpoint ships to a new system? I haven't found any literature on how I can disassociate it from the current system. We'd be ok with joining the lock to SmartThings, Wink, or the like if it wouldn't work with a service like Abode, Scout or Simplisafe.

I am looking for two outdoor security cameras that can ideally be plugged into an outlet and connect with wifi.

Good quality during night and day would be useful, obviously - but does not need to be crystal clear as I have a small budget.

Ideally I would like them to have free storage (cloud) with their app, or have an micro SD card slot and an app I can connect to, to view live or playback video.

Changing of playback speed is a must.

A subscription to their app is something I would prefer to avoid.

I am looking to spend around $100-150 USD per camera maximum.

Any recommendations are appreciated.

Anyone with a Lorex NVR get prompted to do a firmware update today?

So far, the things I’ve noticed is: 1) that the motion sensitivity is through the roof on the NVR, 2) my iOS app is sending notifications for all my cameras instead of only the one that I have selected to send me motion notifications.

I have an extensive Yi camera system, but recent changes to the UI interface with ads and resetting my cameras and settings after each update forcing me to reset cameras and the like, then only allowing my cameras to save 6 seconds rather than the full length event is the last straw. The only way I can watch or save an event now is to manually pull down the exterior cameras and yank the card and bring it to my main computer and try to find it by timestamp at best. Then I get a message saying..." want to see more?, subscribe to Yi Cloud"

I'm going to scrap the entire system and switch to the wyze camera, what's your thoughts on this move?, I just saw the latest videos on the wyze camera that uses the new AI for alerts. How does the wyze do with full length triggers events and saving them to my phone incase I have to produce video on the spot for legal reasons?

Thanks, I'm hoping wyze is where it's at and I appreciate any input.

I have an Hikvision OEM NR32P4-4 NVR ("Hikvision Comparable Model Number: DS-7604NI-K1/4P") along with 3 hikvision OEM cameras are plugged into my NVR.

Currently the camera record onto the hard drive of the NVR, and that's it. I do not have anything stored in the cloud. I also use an app iVMS-4500 on my iPhone to view my cameras when I am away from home. I have a DDNS setup through noip which I use on the iPhone app. It seems that at least a few times a month I get connection error and can not view the feeds remotely. I am not sure if the noip is not updating or what, but it is very annoying and inconvenient.

So my questions are: What is the cheapest/easiest way to have cloud storage with my NVR? I have a Synology NAS, but because the cameras are hard wired into the NVR, I don't think the Security Station will work on the NAS.

What is the best solution for me to view/access my cameras remotely? Seems like using DDNS and this iVMS-4500 isn't 100% reliable for my home needs. I've read about some services (ie Angelcam) where you use their app, and add you cameras/dvr and you can view them remotely......but not sure how good they are.

ANY suggestions greatly appreciated

Are there any good battery powered security cameras for outdoor use?

All these other outdoor cameras seem to need actual installation in terms of the power source. I don't know how to do that hardwiring stuff, and I'd imagine getting someone to do it would cost as much if not more than the camera itself.

Are there any where it could just have a rechargeable battery in it that I could just charge every few months or something? Closest I fiund was the video doorbell, but I've heard people say its not so great for security cameras, and you have to pay each month for the storage.
