responses:Can anyone give me a recommendation on either Ring or Arlo. We are looking at the Ring with floodlights however we read it is difficult to replace bulbs. Appreciate any advice.
and:Ring has been great for us. I resisted one until we were gifted it, now I understand why it's so popular....
Both are good security cameras , I....
I see the same type post's on my local nextdoor, I typically shut them down when I post a still from my front dr cam at 2am. Then include a link to here to study the cliff notes. Shut's them right up.I can't tell you how many posts I've seen on Nextdoor talking about the "quality" and "security" of RING doorbells and so forth. Unfortunately, they are assumed to be secure imho, until they turn out not to be, and even then most the owners assume everything will be OK because Amazon is going to look out for them.
I agree. Most folks that do not have security cameras, but desire them, do not really know why they want them. They do not really care about the purpose of those cameras. They think "Ok, I think I need cameras, but I do not know what I really need and do not want to research it. I just want to buy something and be done with it".This is why i post my long greeting message. But it does not help. People are just Lazy. There is no planning for stupid.
People don’t realize that when you search “best home camera system” your results are rigged by so called test sights that are there only to refer sales to amazon.

It's the age of advertising and an 'all in one solution'.He really did not want to get that deep into it. He just wanted to buy something, plug it in, and be done.
There has been for some time now.I just wish there was a good "doorbell cam" that was ONVIF and BI compatible. I'd like to put in a small doorbell cam to add to my set of Dahua/Hikvision cameras, constantly recording to BI and also notifying me on my phone when someone rings the bell. It seems everything is cloud based crap in this use case.
I do have a Hik watching my door exterior space; it's a package-cam and bald-spot-cam. Would love something looking straight out from the doorjamb that would come in a small package.
It's not a doorbell as far as I can see. I want an actual video doorbell, with a pushbutton and so forth, preferably with two way audio.
Consider a DHI-VTO2000A-S .So, I want a camera that captures face view at the door, AND SERVES AS THE DOORBELL BUTTON FOR THE HOUSE (ding, dong!), while also sending an alert to the phone so I can interact with them via two way audio. Video/audio should be captured by BI. That's what I'm looking for.
