Reco for outdoor day/night analog bullet cameras?

Joe Flynn shared this question 7 months ago

Does anyone have recommendations for replacement day/night outdoor bullet camera?

Shopping online is so difficult with so many fake reviews and conflicting opinions. If you have personal experience with what might be good for outdoor scenes.

Bump, please any experience you may have had with outdoor cameras? I need to buy some and internet purchases can be a gamble.

While I don't have any analog bullet cams i do currently have 25+ IP Based 4 Megapixel outdoor domes by HIKVision that work really well and are not overly expensive. The DS-2CD3145F-IS is what I primarily use and If you go the AliExpress route you will save a great deal of money however the caveat is you CAN'T upgrade the firmware on them. If you try to upgrade the multi-language firmware to a version not specifically tied to your serial number you will end up with the device reverting to a Chinese UI which is where it will stay. That being said the cost savings is quite significant and the cameras seem solid so the need to upgrade should not be required. I am making an assumption that their analog lines are as good as their IP lines.
