    Yes, Hikvision 4K cams with a Hikvision NVR. Synology surveillance station will work fine if you choose to go down that path to save some dosh. I have a Hikvision 4K setup and couldn't be happier with it.

    I'd probably steer clear from dome cameras for outside. Overtime the dome will cause glare at night and reduce vision

    The dahua starlight are amazing for nightvision. Worth considering

    Interesting. In all the many research hours prior to buying, I've not heard this complaint once in my travels.

    Maybe the newer hikvision don't suffer from it but it is a known issue that over time the foam ring can degrade

    All my dome hikvisions look terrible at night after a few years. My Turret Dahua is crystal clear. I'll replace my domes with turrets over time.
