Believe that backstreet uses Dahua cameras, from the look of the cameras.

If you are using a manufactures NVR and cameras , it is normally recommended that you stick with that manufacture, as mixing manufactures on the NVR may cause lost of features and incompatibility.

Use Dahua starlight cameras or Hikvision darkfighter cameras if you need good low light cameras.
Look at the sensor size on the cameras. The best sensor size of a "HOME" ip camera is 1/1.8" , the bigger the sensor the more light, the better the night vision.

Cameras are designed for specific needs, there is not one size fits all. The camera to cover an inside hallway is different than the camera use of an overview of the front yard.

Do you want to stick with your current NVR or up grade to another NVR or a VMS (blue iris) ?

if you are interested in International Dahua cameras, a forum member sells dahua (and some Hikvision) and ships world wide. You can read some of the members recommendations on his service. He also provides cameras to other forum member for evaluation and reviews.
You can email him for a quote, or purchase from his Aliexpress store or his Amazon store. The cameras are fully upgradable, he posts upgrade software when available.

I recommend email andy
