Thanks, Dan. This sounds interesting. I have in mind a project I never completed because I couldn't find the system that allowed me to run powered cameras outside. Battery operated sounds very inconvenient to me. I also want a system that will output via HDMI.

Terry.......You can run the Lorex 4K cameras up to 300 feet with the camera's power being supplied by the Ethernet cable from the network video recorder. No need for power outlets at the camera locations. The cameras are waterproof so mounting them outside is not an issue. All of my cameras are outside mounted under the eaves. The cameras come with 100 feet of cat 5 Ethernet cable for each camera. You can purchase longer lengths if needed, and there is direct burial cat 5 Ethernet cable if needed. The Lorex NVR does provide HDMI output up to full 4K resolution..

This sounds like the system I should be getting. Did you install the system yourself?

Terry.......Yes I did. The most difficult part was running the Ethernet cables through the attic to the various location of the roof eaves. I got up two mornings in a row at 4:00 AM so I could work in the attic until about 9:00 AM before it got too hot to be up there. Crawling around on the joists and through fiberglass insulation is no fun. I picked a closet location for the NVR where I already had a power outlet for the alarm system, then routed all the Ethernet cable to that point. I used a USB extension cable to connect a wireless mouse receiver that sits on my desk, and use a Logitech wireless mouse to control the system. I also used a five meter HDMI cable from the NVR to the 43 inch Sony 4K monitor. There is some work involved to installing the cables and cameras but it isn't complicated, just tedious. The effort is worth it once the video surveillance system is up and running. This is a photo of a full screen view at my front door camera.

Thanks, Dan. One for question -- where did you find the 8 gig system -- or did you just do your own hard drive upgrade?

Terry.......I purchased the Lorex eight channel 4K NVR with six of the 4K cameras from the Amazon link I provided in a post above, then added two additional cameras. That Lorex system comes with a 2TB hard drive installed. I purchased an 8TB hard drive and replaced the 2TB hard drive in the NVR. Doing that allows me 15 additional days for a total of 20 days of eight channel 4K storage before the hard drive begins to write over the oldest files. I purchased the Seagate SkyHawk 8TB Surveillance Internal Hard Drive from Amazon.

Are there issues with voiding the warranty? With formatting the new drive?

Terry.......The installation instructions say the system can accept up to an 8TB hard drive, so I don't think installing a hard drive would impact the warranty.

The only issue I have experienced so far is fan noise. I removed the cover from the NVR chassis and that solved the issue. The fan itself is quiet, but the vent holes in the cover that the fan sits behind cause wind turbulence that is audible. With the cover removed there is no fan noise now.
