Found 1st Jun
Had a few requests for complete CCTV kits, and noticed Box were selling this HiWatch kit for much less than other retailers. NVR with 2TB storage, and includes 6 mini bullet cameras, allowing you to add 2 more to the system should you need them.

Reading the description this seems to support third party cameras, including networked models, which is handy should you wish to change or add more cameras.

Friend in the CCTV industry warns me off these all the time. Cheap and cheerful, but a security nightmare apparently:

So long as you keep the firmware up to date and change the default passwords, you should be ok.
While this may be a very good kit what would put me off is the fact that it seems you need to run a network cable from each camera directly back to the the NVR. From an installation POV that could be very tricky and take a lot if time. However, Hikvision is well regarded for producing great CCTV camera's.

Wireless systems come with their own problems (Check the Arlo threads for some of them). Network cable is better than power and connection cables though.

Why wouldn't you be able to connect the cameras via a POE switch?
I don't understand the security problem..... If you leave default passwords on and put on a network open to internet, then of course you are just inviting someone to have a peek. Just keep them isolated, and access via a jump server/console if needed.

Network cable is definitely better but a better option is for the NVR to be able to find the camera once it's on the network and not connected directly to the NVR.

You may be able to do that but if there is an 8 camera limit then its suggest to me that the cameras may need to be connected directly to the NVR.
