Camera Recommendations

Post by MKEbrew » Wed Jan 16, 2019 7:24 pm

I have been looking through the hardware compatibility list and see some familiar names, and names I've never heard of before. I want to replace a couple Foscam (or fake Foscam, I'm not sure) cameras and add a few more. Preferably of more professional quality. Monitoring parking lot, doors, front/back of building.

Not looking for someone to say "use this camera, it exactly fits your needs" but more of a suggestion of what I should be looking at or maybe which models/brands you're really happy with.

Running an older version of Zoneminder right now (1.25) and will be upgrading to current version as part of my project.

Thank you!

I have used Dahua for years. Very happy with them. "IP cam talk " has a section for dahua cameras the guys review them and post pictures and videos.
I can't say much about the other brands because I have only used Dahua and a couple super cheapies which weren't that bad.
Dahua has some awsome PTZ cams.
