Hello,

I am looking for a 16 Cameras IP Security system with the following features:

  • Reliable people recognition (not facial, just differentiate between people vs animal)
  • 2-ways audio on at least 4 cameras, audio recording on all cameras,
  • Any motion detection and recording, or recording after people recognition
  • Night vision
  • Extremely reliable wireless or wired with power over ethernet,
  • Instant notification to smart phone.
  • Half of the cameras will be outdoor
  • No monthly/yearly subscription
  • About $1K (with 8 cameras to start) if possible, if more than $1K please recommend anyway.

If all features above are not available, a system that allows me to write custom software would be great. Many thanks for your time and thought.

IMHO, best cameras currently for night vision are those with 1/1.8" sensors, such as the Dahua IPC-T5442T-xx, these run $150-180 each, so 16 cameras will blow out your budget entirely. they have audio monitoring/recording, but you'd need something else for talking back. they are waterproof so can be used indoors or outdoors. These are PoE cameras, IMHO, there's no such thing as extremely reliable wireless, and there's certainly no such thing as wireless power.
