    Last Tuesday I gave a presentation to my neighborhood association about choosing the right security cameras (a major point of interest given the property crime that residents deal with).

    In case anyone is interested, here is a link to a PDF of the slides: Security Camera Presentation Oct 2018.pdf

    I should add that much of what is in that presentation started with what I learned on this board, and I gave a shout-out to ipcamtalk.com during my talk. So thanks to all of you who got me started on the path of wisdom, so to speak. :)

    Good job @wtimothyholman

    Quick review on some of those pages:

    Slide on page 5 - suggest modify 4K HDTV - to perhaps 4K UHD ( HDTV )

    Coax - 4 standards to note, HDCVI is one of those...


    Slide 12 - may want to differentiate DVR and NVR

    For Cloud Cameras - add bandwidth used.. this can be especially painful 300-400GB per month per each Nest Camera at higher res settings. ( lower res = poorer quality picture )

    Also note failure and reliability issues with Cloud cameras - as well as many lack embedded time stamps. ( can be problematic for evidence )

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll definitely be adding to the presentation as time goes on, and as new products and cameras hit the market. I had a good response from the presentation, which probably means a lot of people will be asking me for free advice. No good deed ... :)
