NVR Hybrid Wired/Wireless 16CH System - Is This A Unicorn?

Greetings community. I've just joined in order to ask my first question. Please forgive me if this topic is already discussed. I am new!

Q: I have been searching for a hybrid system that can connect about 8 PoE cameras and about 8 wireless IP cameras. I need the wireless IP cameras to have the ability to connect via existing router or mesh network and not simply be limited to connect using the in-built "Easy Setup" WiFi radio that is transmitted solely from the NVR. It's a large building and I will be setting up a mesh network which I will use to greatly expand the wireless range of the system. I sure am having a hard time finding such a system. Is this a unicorn that I am hunting for, or can someone point me in the correct direction.
