No problem

I plugged in the nvr today and set it up with the 2 cameras

Plan is to get the lower one mounted tomorrow with hopefully the cable run, depending on the winds getting up the ladder

I went Unifi at the start, great overall setup. Its about 500 euro for the NVR, 1 Camera, Wifi Hub and Gateway and about 100 euro per camera afters but this is an amazing enterprise grade wifi solution with an equaling great CCTV solution rolled into one. Its the Sonos solution for proconsumers in this space. Check out https://unifi-protect.ui.com/ & https://www.ui.com/unifi/unifi-ap/. I found https://www.eurodk.com/ best site to pick them up.

Just wondering can I use a different manufacturer camera instead of Dahua to connect to the Dahua NVR?

Looking for a few different options with a narrower field of view than the 2.8mm dahua I have

Ah yes you went IP. Yeah you can use another brand on it. You want a camera that can use ONVIF.

Can you not get a Dahua one? I know you said freetv don't have them but have you tried anywhere else? cctvireland might have what you are looking for.

couldnt find one, freetv have a 4MP Dome Network Camera (40m IR, Motorised 2.8-12mm Lens) for €128

Reolink seem to be only compatible with their own NVR's

The 2.8mm 4MP camera was €78 so an extra 50 for the motorized feature
If I could get something for similar price as the fixed 2.8mm with a narrower fov I'd be happy enough

The motorised are good to be fair. Very handy to have aswell. Gives plenty of scope for adjusting the field of view.

Just a heads up, both Hikvision and Dahua have been prohibited from ONVIF, happened a few weeks ago.

Announced last October as part of trumps antichina agenda.
Technically, onvif is just a set of open source standards so you can't really be prohibited.

Agreed. Every manufacturer uses its own modification of the onvif standard, onvif is not a uniform standard
