Hey everyone, I’m looking for recommendations on a 16 channel POE camera set up for my 2 flat in Chicago. I will be installing 11 cameras right away and more later. Also, would you recommend bullet or turret cameras?

All of my cameras will be installed outside. Do turrets perform well in cold temperatures, snow and rain. They will be on the side of the property so they will all be exposed to the Chicago weather

Turrets work fine in all weather conditions.

Hi @Jgonz

How well cameras do outdoors, with snow and rain is very dependent on how well they were installed to keep the elements out ...

iirc we've had a number of threads covering this topic .. hint look for : Junction box, coax seal / silicone stretch tape, drip loop(s), electrical tape, silicone caulking, di-electric gel .. )

Turret is the most shape camera here, IPC-T54IR-ZE IPC-54IR-AS

but the famous bullet cams here are for very long range watching, some use it as LPR camera with some further DIY settings.
Like IPC-B52IR-Z12E and 4MP IPC-B54IR-Z4E
