Hi All from beautiful Ottawa, Ontario (Canada) :-)
My first post so please don’t flame me for stupid question(s).
Finally I pulled the trigger on 6 wonderful cams to get some monitoring around my 2 story house. 4 of them will be on the outside of the house in the plastic black enclosures and 25’ usb cables and 2 of them indoor monitoring lower floor. Also I got 128gb SD cards for them.
The 2 of the external cameras will mounted very high and I will require to borrow ladder in order to get to them. The other 2 under lower roof, which should be much easier to get to using smaller ladder which I have.
For now my plan is to use Wyze IOS app on my iPhone/ipads.
Also I will try bluestacks on my win10 PC, as this will be probably the easiest to get my cams on win10 PC.
Later I will look into RTSP and possibly BlueIris setup ventures.
My questions are:
Should I flash all 6 cams with latest RTSP firmware or should I stick with regular stock firmware? For now I only care about person detection functionality. Also as I said above 2 of the external cameras mounted high will be in enclosures and are going to be pain to upgrade manually each time there is a new RTSP firmware. I’m planning to seal enclosures with some silicon to weather proof it for rain/snow. Any thoughts?
With 128gb SD cards what would you recommend the settings to be? SD or HD? continuous recording? I’m thinking HD continues for 4 external cams and 2 internal cams HD event based?
Please feel free to post any suggestions/tips that would help me going.
Thank you in advance for your help.
