ReoLink NVR w/ 4K cameras... Now would like a Ring Doorbell or "sometime" compatible with an Amazon Show.

Picked up a ReoLink 4K NVR back late last year. It works great, however I'm starting to wish I might of went with Ring or another system that was Amazon Echo compatible. ReoLink does have this feature but "not" for their NVR systems (which is surprising because these are fairly new systems). Mainly want one for the front door along with an Amazon Show so when we are cooking we can "ask" who's at the front door. So, wondering what everyone would recommend for this feature? Ring Doorbell 2 or Pro? or just get a wireless ReoLink (with a solar panel) that is compatible with Amazon Show? I guess the "wireless" reolinks that you can add them to your NVR so I could use my local NVR to record. Just wondering how well it works.

I honestly just get twitchy about the whole Ring / Surveillance State issue. Any cloud camera scares me now.

Same, I was almost on board but then too many red flags. Would still consider something more private though.

I wish I could find a doorbell cam that would provide notifications to my cellphone and record to my NAS. I refuse to pay monthly charges to record to the cloud, especially when I have no idea if my data is not being used for something else.
