    I've had this unit up and running for about 1.5 years now but there's been no updates from Lorex ever since I got it. I bought it by itself and running 1 Lorex 2mp cam and 6 other various Dahua 3 to 4mp cams that I've purchased over the last year.

    I see the equivelent Dahua unit is this.. DHI-NVR4108-8P and looks like this..

    Where as my FLIR/Lorex unit is black and looks like this..

    Does anyone have one of these units or flashed them back to the Dahua FW? If so the phone or web app prob won't work any more correct?

    Thanks for the info or help!

    Sorry to bump this thread, but I have a similar question, but this is for Lorex cameras. Have a couple of colleagues that bought that Lorex 4K Camera from Costco--but they can't seem to gain access to its smart features. @mat200

    I should have mentioned IVS and face detection, this seems to be absent in Lorex, QSee, Amcrest and others :)

    I was surprised that LaView has this feature in their rebranded Hikvision cameras, but unfortunately doesn’t work with Dahua rebranded NVR (or anything other than Hikvision)

    I mean I understand some like the simplicity of buying local, even when you try to encourage them not to otherwise.

    HI Arjun,

    Yes, those seemed to be not implemented by the various re-brands of Dahua OEM products. Perhaps they think the market segment of consumers would call them too many times to attempt to figure out how to use it and thus they want to have more simple controls? perhaps they want NOT to compete against the professional installation companies?

    Many of those deals at Costco and those listed at SD are very well priced, however those picking them up will have to realize that any kit they get for <$1000 will have some significant compromises.

    As those cameras have an available rtsp feed, I would recommend your friends who picked them up to consider upgrading to a Blue Iris setup to process and alert - they should be able to do a dual setup, this way if a thief finds the NVR they would still have a Blue Iris PC with a copy of the video ;-)

    I can’t even persuade some to use Blue Iris because they don’t want to spend extra on a new system build. They prefer the NVR + Multi-Camera bundle thinking they’ll save

    Thanks, some of these individuals need to step into the 21st century. I’ve explained them how a basic setup goes, but then the blank stare is something not enthralling. I can only imagine what licensed folks go through in a post-install environment, lol

    I can probably advise them to use a tablet or phone in conjunction with their NVR as even their cameras do not contain MicroSD slots

    Only worth a try, seems like a good way to start a side-business, lol
