Residential Outdoor Camera Recommendations? (Not Hikvision)

Hi, I’m looking to get an 8-camera wired IP outdoor system installed at my house. I want to view camera feeds on my phone when traveling, as well as on my TV, when home. Given the recent news concerning Hikvision, can you recommend a brand for home surveillance? Thanks!
