re: Best home camera system (wired)

Can either of these NVR's connect to WiFi to access video remotely, or do they have to be connected with an ethernet cable to your router?

The reolink cannot directly. You need a "wired" connection. While we have Cat5 in every room of the house, we did not have it in the hall way where I wanted to view the stream. However, what I was able to do I was take an old wireless router and connect it to my main router as a bridge set up. This works fine. My only cost there was the time it took to set up the bridge as I already had the old router. If you didn't want to go through the trouble of setting up a bridge, I think any wireless extender with ethernet port would work for the same purpose.

I have a sneaking suspicion that is why the e-mail notifications do not work (the push notifications do work) is because the NVR is on a bridge. But I really have no idea. I chatted with their support staff for a while, but I ended it when they wanted to log into the NVR remotely. I didn't think that feature was worth that trade off.
