Hi all,
I'm putting specs together for a home security system starting with 4 cameras and will eventually max out at 8. I'm finding that my camera choices really depends on my NVR choice, so that's where I'm starting. From the forums I've read through, it seems like NVR that has built in POE is more trouble than a convenience. I have all the camera locations wired with CAT6 but no power so I would have to use some type of a POE switch to inject power to the cameras.

I'd love to hear recommendations for an NVR and POE switch that would allow me to locate the NVR anywhere on the network and not necessarily next to the cable modem (equipment room), as I'd rather locate the NVR in my master bedroom so I can HDMI it into the bedroom TV.

I'm looking for an NVR that can record in 1080 Hi Def, work well with Macs, Iphones and Ipads and can control and view cameras remotely. This might be stating the obvious but I'd like to record everything that is triggered by motion (even better if it can automatically send an email alert when triggered).

Budget is less of a concern as opposed to quality of the picture and reliability.

I'm fairly technical, but the part that I'm sure will cause me the biggest trouble is taking an 8 port POE switch (or 2 four port POE switches) and getting the NVR to recognize several different cameras on each switch? Maybe not...maybe hardware has gotten more sophisticated to recognize the different cameras automatically.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
