am using Blue Iris software that is installed on desktop with windows 7 and 3 Hikvision outdoors cameras (DS-2CD2032),,4 years old

Looking to buy another 2 outdoors type PoE but longer range [i.e 10 m /33 feet and above] and higher resolution as they would be used in a poor environment light.

I am thinking to spend $150 per camera ?

Please share your advice ?

I guess they should be compatible with no issue with blue Iris as I am using it now

I asked other forum same question just to have second opinions

Most current Hikvision IP cameras deliver 30m IR.
So, to stick with your current body style e.g. mini-bullet
8MP = 2085
5MP = 2055

In slightly less good series (lower frame rate and 2x smarts missing):
8MP = 2083
4MP = 2043

But, according to taste and budget; 2, 3, 4 and 6MP variants are also available.

The first 2 digits of the part code denotes mini-bullet.
The third digit is the resolution in MegaPixels.
The last digit denotes the series; 5 = EasyIP 3 series; 3 = EasyIP2+ series
You can use this info to search and purchase accordingly - the search function at the top-centre of every page of our webshop will work from just three digits, so 208 will reveal all the currently available 8MP mini-bullets.

Thanks Phil for your help and guide me to the right direction
I don't mind to try other brands if you find them good as well

Hik is mainstream / no reason not to use.
You stated $ / we don't ship to USA.
So, no sense in me looking off-piste for you with e.g. Milesight or Optio.
