I've scoured the internet and understand the following for cctv installation at home.
1. IP Camera(s) (Bullet or Dome) 2. POE Switch to power the IP Camera(s)
Now I'm undecided on the following
Manufactures recommend using NVR (Network Video Recorder) to see and record the network feed.
My question is the following
If I connect the POE switch to my windows 10 machine and use a security software like blue iris does it not replace the NVR?
P.S I need a monitor, mouse, HDD in both cases. Using POE switch I save on electrical wiring too.
Please help understand.
