HikVision + Synology Surveillance System Vs. QSee System

Hi All,

I purchased a q-see system from costco. (9 Bullet Cameras 3MP 1080P + 16 camera NVR/3Tb) for $1200. Hard to beat that price for the bundle. However, the NVR is terribly loud and we are an Apple household and the the Q-See NVR doesn't work well with Apple. (Got the PSS software running, but it is a bit clunky)

I'm trying to get some opinions on what what option other folks would recommend. I already have a Synology NAS.

1) Stick with the Q-See System. Put the NVR in a closet and possibly replace the fan.

2) Don't use the NVR. Hook up the q-see cameras to the Synology Surveillance System. Sell the NVR. Buy a POE switch.

3) Just return the Q-See system. Buy some HikVision 3Mp cameras for <$100 each on aliexpress +. Buy the POE Switch and hook up the Synology NAS.

Thanks in advance for your recommendations.

Dave
