    Can anyone identify this Nvr?

    The yellow sticker is the business card of the original installer. There are no numbers or markings at all on the recorder. I have a feeling it may be a rebranded Dahua due to the cheesy menu. I opened the cover and found bo useful info inside either

    Wireless cameras recommendation?

    Wireless cameras recommendation?

    One bad thing about wireless cameras is they are garbage! If you cant get a cable to the camera location maybe call a electrician to install the cable for you. and install a quality ip system. I have never seen a wireless system that has worked properly. and they have a pretty short life span.
