Security Camera Recommendations

------------------------------------------------------
Hello, hope everyone has had a great holiday season. Due to a couple
rescent events I am looking to upgrade the security around my house.
Currently I have a wired 4 camera DVR system for my house with 2 arlo and 1
Merkury wifi cameras for my driveway.

I'd like to go full IP camera with a Network Video Recorder and was looking
and Ubiquity equipment but almost all of their cameras are out of stock.
The non pro recorder is available and would suit my needs but have read
it's tricky to get non Ubnt cameras running on it.

Currently my network is fiber from the phone company going to an EdgeRouter
X with 2 VLANs, one services my house with a UniFi AP and the other is sent
via a NanoBeam to my rental house which has a second UniFi AP that the WiFi
cameras connect to. The VLANs aren't specifically necessary that's just the
way I set it up.

Does anyone have any recommendations for NVRs and Cameras? I can configure
the network as needed and running outdoor aerial or underground cable isn't
an issue either as there is about to be some construction on the the rental
house anyway. I do want to avoid Google/Amazon/Arlo etc cameras as there is
sometimes a delay in start of recording and I like the way my wired system
works as well as battery backup I have for it.

Thanks in advance!
David R.
