Last month at the midwest regional I heard a lot of people recommend Ubiquiti DVRs and Cameras as an upgrade to our current situation. We are looking to add a few new camera locations and are considering a Ubiquiti Unifi DVR that can expand for many more cameras (30+) as we slowly replace our current Panasonic dinosaurs.
For those that are using Ubiquiti DVRs, can you send me a link to the one you are using? As well as the cameras? Are all of the cameras pretty much compatible? I found this already: Ubiquiti Networks UniFi UVC-NVR with 2TB HDD. We don’t need the latest and greatest but is that the best option?
Do all of the cameras have to be on the same switch? Or can the DVR find other Ubiquiti cameras on the network as long as they are on the same VLAN? Also, can the switches be non-Unifi?
If anyone has a contact for a re-seller (that would know more on this) or any other general advice on the topic that would be much appreciated.
