Dears,

I am considering to buy a home security camera system to be installed and connected to my home wireless network, mostly all cameras will connect in wireless mode to this home network. Will the Asus RT-AC88U be able to carry or withstand the traffic load of such cameras ? Is a 4 channel NVR storage device needed ? Would you clarify ??

The AC88U should have no problems handling the cameras, as mine handles quite a few wirelessly.
As for the NVR, that depends on your setup. I have multiple cameras and I use BlueIris to control them through a PC that does the recording.

I have 16 Amcrest camera, each with their own 32gb memory card, and a NVR with a 10Tb hard drive. Each 1080p maximized to best video is 8mbps traffic flow. VBR

if you are worried about bandwidth, I could use no NVR and just let the cameras write to their own micro SD cards.

And I thought I had a lot of cameras at 8, lol
Good to know that there is plenty of bandwidth still available. I've never used an NVR, so wasn't sure on that one.

I have a CT8 and an RP-AC55 as an AIMesh node and I have 3 wireless cameras (2 REOLinks and an Armcrest). They record to my Synology NAS. I provisioned 1 2.4ghz network just for the cameras and IoT devices. Works perfectly.

Thanks to all, I got my cameras works well.
My issues came from the router in bridge mode.

@RMerlin Just so you know ASUS gave a a new firmware to be released. It’s corrected my bridge issues, as well as displays the list of clients better.

It was 9.0.0.4.386.40322

I don’t know if you have your hands on this.
