Quick question on IP Cameras

I’m running 4 outdoor IP cameras and 4 Wyze cameras indoors… and I’m wondering if running a NVR would help with HA’s performance.

I’ve configured the cameras pretty generically:

- platform: generic
  name: Family Room
  still_image_url: "http://xxx.xxx.xxx/cgi-bin/api.cgi?cmd=Snap&channel=0&rs=wuuPhkmUCeI9WG7C&user=UserName&password=Password"
  stream_source: "rtsp://UserName:[email protected]:554/live"

And everything worked fin until I added the Wyze cameras to the mix then I noticed some latency and freezing…

The Wyze have been updated to perform in RTSP which works… but as I said above I’m wondering if I’m over taxing the Pi

I’m thinking of using a second Pi or a mini Win10 box as a NVR might be a good performance move
