New POE system for home


Standard Member
Hi All,

I am looking to install POE CCTV system at my home and needs some advice. I have done some research and have narrowed down to either HIKVision or ReoLink POE systems. However i need some advise in regard to which type of camera and NVR to install.

Below is the list of my requrements along with pictures marked with suggested camera install points and the lenght of the drive way and the frontage

  • 8 channel DVR with option for remote access and notification
  • 4MP or 5MP camera ( five camera in total)
  • 1 two way voice camera at the door
  • 1 color camera for the drive with motiion detection
Happy to take suggestions in terms of camera location or anything else.
