Hello!
My neighbors house was struck by lightning and it killed my lechange NVR NK88P042 (exact model in link below). My NVR won't boot from boot screen so I think it's dead. I never liked lechange. I bought it because it had decent cameras and was cheap at the time. I could never get remote viewing to work. Is there a plug and play option NVR I can buy to replace this that will work with my poe cameras? Brands to look at that are more user friendly for a newb such as myself? I could use 1 more camera max. Links to deals or just make/models info is greatly appreciated.

Runs are all cat 5e and go to a poe switch.


Thanks,
Nathan

Hi @Nathan Seely

Yes iirc we saw a number of deals on Lechange from Frys and the like in the past, and they were Dahua OEMs.

I think those cameras meet ONVIF specs and so you could use Blue Iris VMS on a windows PC if you like .. or you could look for Dahua's VMS to run on a PC ..

another option, if you like to go the NVR route is to check out Andy's deals right now on NVRs ..

Probably a good time also to upgrade the most critical low light camera position with a better larger sensor newer model also ..
