Recommendations for Non-Chinese POE Cameras for Home Security

I’ve been researching extensively to find the best home security camera setups. I’ve decided to use an NVR with Blue Iris, and now I need to choose the cameras. I’ll be installing 6-8 POE cameras, each paired with motion-activated floodlights.

Key Requirements:

  • Non-Chinese owned cameras (due to various concerns)
  • Budget-friendly options (preferably not spending $500 per camera like Axis)
  • Continuous recording with motion alerts through Blue Iris
  • Driveway camera with a viewing distance of up to 50 feet
  • Other cameras with a maximum viewing distance of 20 feet

These cameras will serve as an advanced alarm system and for recording video footage continuously.

What would you all recommend?

Axis, but you’ll have to pay a heavy price for them.

Even with trusted cameras, it’s best to just take what you want and prevent its connection to the Internet. I simply store mine on an entirely different VLAN.
