  • does each extra camera come with a cable supplied?

    • The supplied ethernet cables are garbage

      • What’s wrong with them? Not in wall rated?

          They are CCA

                @ClueBear: thanks…

                which are the better ones to use?

                • @jv: Would also like to know this..

                  I purchased a 4 camera set up and have it here to install but if the cables no good I guess the electrician will have something?

                  Cat 6/7?

                  • +1

                    @FreshPrinceofKP: cat6 is more than enough (and honestly, in many cases, 5e should be for these as well - cat6 is just a bit more future proof), just get data cabler / electrician to use that when they install (vs running the existing cables).

                    • @SuttoL:

                      cat6 is just a bit more future proof

                      Is it for CCTV?

                      The difference between 5e and 6 is 100Mbps and 10Gbps

                      Do you see CCTV cameras needing more than 100Mbps in the future as video codecs continue to improve to reduce bandwidth.

                      • @spaceflight: 5e is 1Gbps vs cat6 at 10Gbps theoretically and it most situations doesn't matter at all. The improvement is in the noise reduction from the tighter twist

                        • @Dezeption:

                          5e is 1Gbps vs cat6 at 10Gbps

                          Correct, I missed a 0 in 1000Mbps

                  • @FreshPrinceofKP: A installer with proper registration won't actually use the included cable because it's CCA. For IPC cat5e is plenty. It will be a very very long time to surpass their limits. You'd notice zero difference against cat6 especially at the run lengths used. Even then the install will be with cat6 no one carries cat5e with them anymore, but don't let them try and upsell you from cat6

                    • @Dezeption: The cameras are only 100mbit anyway so don't even need cat5e. They peak at something like 8mbit so be a long time before you even hit a 100mbit limit

                      @Dezeption: I just finished installing my 4 cameras - DIY just running them in the roof space. Any danger in not replacing the cables for a few years do you think?

                      • @localhoost: They will be fine. Just keep them out of the elements. Reason they are banned here is if there was any housefire the CCA can potentially catch fire and carry it around the house but them alone being a fire risk is extremely low. At most they could cause artifacts in your stream

                        Do you permanently installed cable?
                        Do you have a cables licence?

                          @spaceflight: I didn’t terminate any of the cables, just plugged them in. The cables aren’t attached to anything so this would be considered temporary, and therefore legal.

                          • @localhoost: That's its still technically illegal the moment its run between walls, eves, subfloor and ceiling/roof and its connected to the telecom network. The only legal way is to have the wires all exposed. The most it can be covered is with carpet, it's grey area between external conduits

                        Are you licensed?
                        If not, what you did was illegal.

                        • @jv: My understanding is that if it's plug and play and at your own premises, then you don't need to be a licensed/registered cabler. Different story if you're getting paid to do it or it can connect to a telecommunications network.

                            Nope.
                            If it is running through a wall, through the roof or under the house, it is treated as permanent and you need an licensed cabler to do it legally.
                            Illegal cabling can potentially make you house insurance invalid.

                            Your understanding is wrong.

                            Do you know the requirements to seperate from electrical cabling?
                            Do you know what AS/CA S008 and AS/CA S009 require?
                            You probably don't, and it's reasons like that why you need to be licensed to install cable

                            A registered cabler must perform telecommunications, fire, security and data industries cabling.

                            Irrelevant. Still illegal if they are in the roof or under the house on between walls…

                                What about your camera and switch/router?

                                They are installed in your roof, that's a permanent installation.

                                Ah the "I'm to lazy to do my own research" approach.

                                So you have no idea what rules, regulations and requirements apply to the cables you have illegally installed.

                                Not only have you illegally installed cable you have installed cable that does not meet AS/CAS008 and is also illegal.

                                    I don't care why you will only do it based on Dezeption’s advice (at least you listened to someone). You should so it because what you have done is illegal which is what Dezeption and jv and me have said.

                      There is nothing wrong with CCA if it is never connected to a telecommunications network.
                      AS/CA S008 and AS/CA S009 only cover telco cable.

          you can look at the wires or do a flame test.

  • I thought the 4x 4k cameras and nvr often got to sub $600.

    • +2

      This is the ai detection ones but yeah it seems like a fair price. The non ai equivalent ones usually is like $400 on sale so this seems legit.

      • +2

        I mean they also have the what appears to be the same kit listed for $720 on their eBay store and $738 on their website, so not convinced it isn't an error…

  • Good price for the 4k with Person/Vehicle Detection. Previous best I found was a little over $600 for this configuration.

  • Best way to get this with 8 cameras? Buy 4 extra or get an 8-pack?

    • Depends on the cameras you want - the 8 pack supports more cameras overall, and comes with a 3TB hdd built in.

      Overall, I got the 4 camera, since I wanted to use different cameras with it to get to 8 (we use their E1 series internally for some stuff)

  • +1

    Nice find OP. Seems to be about $50-$60 cheaper than I've previously found.

    Bought for our new build.

  • There is also an Afterpay discount.

  • Is the NVR and specifically the App ( viewing footage on phone ) easy enough to setup up.

    I've given up on an older Chinese grey import Hikvision setup.

    • +1

      Very! you'll need a screen (they include a mouse) to perform initial setup, but generally was quite straightforward when I purchased on recently.

      App is easy to pair after doing that, you just scan a QR code if I remember correctly.

      • Whole set up can be done via the app or pc/mac client. Edit replied to the wrong comment

        • Can't be done through browser. Just to clarify for those interested.

      • Awesome. Sounds good.

  • Bugger. Googled too long

    • -3

      It is $368 better buy now bud

      • +1

        That was the price for 1NVR+1IPC

  • +3

    We recently purchased this (from amazon, for a bit more) - and have had a great experience for the price.

    We had an electricial run cabling through the house (we were getting cat6 run for computer networking already).

    Only things to be aware of:

    • Cameras included in the kit can only be used with the NVR, they can't be used standalone (the single camera equivalents can be, but these are locked in software according to some reverse engineers).
    • The general setup is quite straightforward, just avoid the ethernet with it and get proper cabling done.
    • Installation is quite easy, image quality is great. The AI detection works generally pretty well, just make sure you update the NVR and Camera firmware.

    I like the reolink ecosystem generally, we paired this with a E1 + E1 pro (one to watch an aquarium, one to watch some of our pets) - and have another E1 Pro and a E1 Zoom on the way. The new Duo looks neat, and they have a wide range that just work with the NVR (auto discovery, auto setup etc).

    Some odd inconsistencies in configuration between web, NVR w/ screen and app, but nothing too painful.

    • I think it works on Synology surveillance as well

    • The kit cameras can be used on the local network without a problem (plug into a separate POE switch if you want to access the RTSP stream), but because they don't come with a UUID to punch through your network they can't be accessed remotely individually. That's why the kit cameras won't work with Google Assistant/Alexa.

      Definitely agree with inconsistencies as you have quite a few places to login and sometimes they are diff accounts: NVR, camera, Reolink mobile app, Reolink cloud, Reolink Win10 app

      • Oh, they can? I hadn't tried directly yet, just going off Reolinks site + https://www.thirtythreeforty.net/posts/2020/05/hacking-reoli... - I thought you couldn't access the ONVIF / RTSP directly on the kit cameras.

        Do you happen to know connection details for them? would be keen to try.

        • +1

          Should be along the lines of this post:
          https://support.reolink.com/hc/en-us/articles/360007010473-H...

          I tried it quite a while ago with VLC, but I don't have the URL I specifically used saved. If you have the cameras plugged into the NVR you won't be able to see the camera on your network as the NVR acts like another router. So you'll have to plug into a separate POE switch.

          I think the link you are referring to is for older cams/firmware. Reolink has RTSP available for many (most?) non-battery operated cameras.

          • @marquise: This is correct. Im using the 820A cam, no dvr (purchased cam separately).

            rtsp://USERNAME:[email protected]:554/h264Preview_01_sub

            I used the SUB stream to plug into home assistant dashboard as its h264 instead of MAIN which is h265.

    • Can you update firmware after you install everything?

      As in, you don't need to take the cameras down and plug them into a USB etc or anything silly like that?

      • Yehp, you just need to do it via the NVR interface (not sure if doable via the web) - but it's all quite easy.

          Yep that’s right, doesn’t work outside my own network. Also push notifications don’t work anymore, and I’m assuming updates won’t work either.

          I figure once lockdown is over and I can actually travel again, I might re-enable remote access just while I’m away.

            @MoonlapseVertigo: mine was delivered today, but that was before the suspicious influx of orders today

  • I would like to learn more about the different Reolink cameras and find it somewhat confusing. Any links to simple explanation of camera differences?

  • Finally got the order to go thru, but the way stock is fluctuating, I expect it to be cancelled.
