I have 4 Amcrest IP Cameras and the non POE DVR Amcrest NV1104 with a seperatly bought Western Digital 2TB purple drive.
Of the 4 cameras I own, I am really happy with the IP3M-943W. Its resolution at night is vastly superior to my 2 older IP2M-842W-CA.
You can't make out the face at night of an intruder with the IP2M-842W-CA, but you can clearly see the person's face with the IP3M-943W.
I also us GE Lightstick lightbulbs on my garage fixtures to light up my driveway and front entry.
I have those 3 are hard wired back to the house network as wired is always better than wifi.
I have a 4th indoor wifi camera- IP3M-HX2B that points outs the window toward the front entry. I turn off the night vision and the GE bulbs make it work perfectly.
I have a timer for my outdoor lights that turn the lights on at sunset and off at sunrise.
If I was to buy it today,
I would go with IP3M-943W for my outdoor cameras and upgrade to the NV4108-HS for the DVR.
With my current setup, I currently record all 4 cameras to the DVR at Max resolution.
They record fine, but live playback (ON MY PHONE APP) due to processing power is limited to the indoor cam and 1 of the IP2Ms.
If I want to look at the other 2 cams, I just have to go to previous recordings and set the time to 2 minutes ago.
If you don't have faith in the Amcrest POE NVR, you could buy the NV1408-HS and add separate power injectors.
When it comes to humility, I am the greatest!
