Cameras you like, or don't?

Cameras you like, or don't?

With a pretty long list of cameras supported, perhaps some better than others, is there any words of wisdom from those who have been down this path of what to look for and what to stay away from as far as cameras go?

Any recommendations for basic cameras would be appreciated. Don't need PTZ or audio. 720 resolution would be ideal. Looking to set up a 4 or 5 camera scenario.

Appreciate any insight.

For low cost ONVIF cameras that work with the app, take a look at www.skvisioncamera.com. I used their bullet camera model SK-249LDP 6*LED array 6mm and 3.6mm lens. I also used Hikvision for in-home model DS-2CD2442FWD-IW and external model DS-2CD2542F-IWS both model with 4mm lens. All the IP cameras I used are 4MP and 5MP.

After some trial and error with a few cameras and the Surveillance Center application, I gave up on Asustor the application due to its general limitations, bugs, and overall lack of support from Asustor.

I have been quite happy with Blue Iris and nearly whatever cam you can possibly throw at it.

I used Blue Iris, it worked well but CPU intensive. I had a few issues with the surveillance app, but it working good now.
