    Looking for ones with local storage myself. Mostly cause I prefer continuous recording. I also hate having to rely on internet/cloud storage when I have my own server to backup to at home (and backup selectively from there).

    Should add that these woud be outdoors with no real access to power outlets so looking more at PoE cameras

    yeah with the nest camera, you can like teach it the difference between humans and dogs or some shit idk haven't needed to do that yet. I do like the fact that I can hear and talk over the camera as well.

    I would highly recommend using ubiquity cameras then. Good build and you can roll your own dvr. They are roughly the same cost as a lot of the managed mainstream cameras too and you dont have to pay for the service

    They are one I have been looking into. Though really it seems like their cameras are meh. Just have to decide if I'm wanting to go with a setup like Blue Iris management or go with a premade setup

    The other setup is a LeChange branded setup that uses Donhua cameras which are pretty well liked...Donhau is the OEM and just rebrands from others.

    I had a ring flood lamp cam. Can view it on the smart phone, talk/listen to audio live through the smart phone and it stores everything in the cloud for you. I think I got mine for around 240 originally.

    Looking at their stuff, it looks to be from the "good" end of the Chinese light bar spectrum. If you're interested in any of their lights, shoot me a link to which one(s) you're thinking about and I'll send you a link to the non-branded version of the same light, which will be half the price for the exact same thing.

    (I spend way too much time nerding out about light bars and know more about them than any normal person should LOL)

    It looks like it's a discontinued single row 20" Pro comp bar. Someone is selling it local for 80 bucks. I looked at some rigids and Bajas and cant justify the purchase of something that I barely use.

    Thanks man. I normally get free stuff from auxbeam, but I haven't done a review in a while so doubt they'll send me anything more until I review my pods (which I haven't wired up yet lol).

    Thanks Jeremy @Skootter14 for selling your bumper to me. I ended up hacking up my original bumper to fill the gap between the grill and bumper and it turned out pretty good. Now I have an excuse to buy more lights.

    Speaking of lights, looks I need new ballasts for the HIDs...

    I don't trust the technology yet for aftermarket LED headlights (but it's all I'll run for auxiliary lighting). Also, I'm a proper headlight bulb nazi and I'm not going to put the wrong bulb in my projectors. :D
