    Camera Suggestions Please

    Ive got two Hikvision Cameras (bullet and dome), and looking for suggestions other than Hikvisons.

    Any suggestions on Cameras that are less expensive, and work with sighthound?

    Thanks

    I'm not sure what less expensive than Hikvision might mean, but I like this Amcrest camera. I use Blue Iris, so do not have recent experience with Sighthound, but the camera is OnVif compatible.

      I also have 3 Amcrest cameras--1 POE bullet, 1 WIFI bullet and 1 wide-angle interior fixed--and have been satisfied so far. I also use Blue Iris so can't comment regarding Sighthound.

        Appreciate the Amcrest suggestions.

        Im paying approx $100-$130 for the Hikvison and want to expand 6-8 more camera. With Amcrest costing half the cost, it will reduce project cost. I'll check and test Sighthound compatibility.

        Thanks again.

          I have 5 amcrest cameras, and have their 8 port poe nvr. Very happy with the cameras. If you sign up for their email, they send out coupon codes to help on price. Some of the codes are good on amazon or only their site.

            Thought I would try one of Amcrests 4k dome camera for my pool area.

            Will update it's function after testing. Downside is it looks as if Sighthound does not support the new H.265 codec to redude file storage.

            Good thing this camera won't be in supper high traffic area.
