Door locks and door video
#1
Sorry, another thread. I'm doing part of the prewire for our new construction myself and as I do keep uncovering topics I'm just not educated about. Tried to do some reading about this one and searched here on cqc but the confusion remains.

 What is the current best practice or best options for door/entry cameras and electronic locks?


BlueIris looks to be in the lead for me regarding general surveillance cameras.

ElkM1g will be installed.

I like the look of the doorbird door stations but found just one thread on cqc, unless my search was off. That was several years old and Dean didn't seem excited about their API.

Read some on electric strikes, fail safe (for fire) vs fail secure. 

There are of course electric deadbolts instead of strikes, can't be hardwired, these are all stand alone, zigbee or zwave best I can tell. If I used those, they'd probably be the only mesh devices of that type in my house.

Is there a recommended product or at least approach for wired strike, camera, doorbell?

Ideally I'd like to be able to view door video feed on cqc wallscreen/pad, talk if necessary, unlock the door from that screen. Would like the video to be recorded by BlueIris or otherwise. Also nice would be an app that would allow seeing and probably communicating with someone at the door when we are on vacation, perhaps unlocking the door remotely. Possibly interested in a keypad along with camera and doorbell allowing the door to be unlocked without key. Maybe that is mandatory with electric strike?

The remote unlocking I guess I have some security concerns with? Remote viewing and talking is standard fare for ring, doorbird etc but I am uncertain if those products can be integrated well with cqc, BlueIris.

For now, I'm wiring doorbell locations with cat and 4cond security wire. Open to advice there too.
