Any thoughts on purchasing and setting up a security camera setup?

I like the Zmodo system I have.
A friend of mine with the Wisconsin State Police has a 16-channel one in his home/yard.
If he trusts it, I trust it.

I can access any camera image with my cell phone (& watch it) as well.
I also can get alerts if there's motion in an area I choose to alert on.

I'm also interested in this. Looking to install 8-12 IP cameras.

What did the crackhead aunt do?

I scared away a cat burglar that was applying his trade around my parent's house. I plan on keeping it that way.

I have setup a couple of Axis network cameras, better than some geared for a homeowner.

We tried a DLink and it was junk.

The technology is amazing... with 1200TVL cameras and 36 IR LED's, I can read a license plate in the pitch black from 50 feet away. Which is cool, because that's about how far it is from my hidden cam pointed to the opening of my driveway.

Even the difference between 960H and 1080P is huge:

Ask your local Police department what Camera resolution they need on the image to charge/prosecute someone.

Yes-it matters. And then buy accordingly.

Jump on something like ipcamtalk. They'll point you towards a load of Chinese garbage, but you'll get some good advice there and anything they recommend will be infinitely better than anything you'll get at an American box shifter.
