I had to add USB cards to my server to handle them all but they are inexpensive and simple. All the the cameras are powered off the USB port so as long as the server is on they are powered. Initially I started with them as a test and kept adding more, then I really liked the ease of setup add they just don't break. I recently lost most off my network to lightning even my blueiris server lost its HDMI output, the dust settled and the only thing left running (still on battery backup) was my server and all cameras filmed some awesome lightning.

      regular dome camera can experience reflections off the plastic dome and show up as artifacts in the recorded video.
      I have seen the same with all glass / plastic domes.



      These type do not have those reflections.

        pete.. got a model number on that? I would love one in white....
        For a while they had all kinds of colors. My exterior coach lights are all black. You could probably take the lamp apart and paint it white. This is the style of coach lights that I always see but they are either black or white.

        Here is the camera and link. I did the link pricing with a 4mm lense and POE. $281.00 USD with free shipping.

        They have another one for $171.99 USD here.

        I have purchased many cameras at this place and have not had an issue to date.

        Here is a black one but I do not know how much it is. Well too its a 2 MP camera so it much be cheaper.

          How are you feeding to main server?

That machine runs 8 cameras and I have another smaller machine with 5 cams in the garage that feeds those cameras to the main server over my network. I ran 10 cameras for a while on the main server but I moved some cameras and decided to split the load, the main server rarely goes over 50% CPU load.

            I setup cameras on the main server that pull the feeds from the garage server, like the garage sever is just another IP camera. I can pull up the setting later when I get back.
