    Home Surveillance Options


    I want a system that can withstand outdoor temperatures (will be dry), be viewable with a smartphone or internet, and preferably programmable to record on motion detect.

    Like the idea of a DVR at home - so the video footage is "mine", but open to cloud if it is necessary. 2-4 cameras.

    What are you folks using?

    I saw something at Costco that seemed to have all of this. Sorry I forget the name. I am also looking for this type item.

    I was looking at this software package for a bit but decided dogs were enough.
    http://download.cnet.com/Security-Mo...-10857702.html

    The positive side of going this route, was that you can buy any brand of camera that fit your needs and you could add/replace cameras as needed without a great deal of investment.
    $90 for the software, a cheap PC with a WIFI card, get a bunch of WIFI IP cameras etc

    Re: Home Surveillance Options

    I am just about to pull the trigger on this one..... I've narrowed it down to a harbor freight model just for two things:

    1) I want wireless.. I do NOT want to run wires around
    2) it has a DVR and net acces..
    3) It's only $299 .. with a HF coupon it's down 20% so it's more than reasonable.

    Costco/bj's have similar models, but they all seem to be wired options.

    http://www.harborfreight.com/surveil...ies-68332.html

    This one deal just came out.. more cameras, more space.. but all wired.

    Home Surveillance Options

    From having to deal with these, I would recommend the Costco system.

    In my past experience, it is the simplest, most effective camera system for the price. The multi thousand dollar professional systems I've seen do the same thing, but are often more confusing.

    Re: Home Surveillance Options

    I am currently using a low cost wireless IP camera. Manufacturer is TrendNet. I can set it for motion detect pictures emailed directly to my cell phone or I can watch live video on my cell. The model I got was about 80.00. Motion detect and video quality is reasonable and it gets the job done on a budget. I believe that they have higher quality cameras also. Overall, I was satisfied with the product.

    I looked into these but saw nothing about recording VIDEO... how's the resolution on the pictures?

    Re: Home Surveillance Options

    I have model TV-IP110WN - The picture resolution is pretty good for the price, you can set brightness, contrast, saturation, and light frequency. The video is also decent for the price, settings include resolution, quality, and 1-30 fps. The motion detect adjustable window works ok and has a sensitivity setting. Sensitivity settings are not super great, but they work. I dont have any info on the recording side of their cameras.

    I've helped setup and used a Samsung system that does everything you want save for being wireless. Worked decently, LOTS of adjustability for motion triggering, included IR cameras.

    Re: Home Surveillance Options

    My buddy has this system w/ 3 cameras total. I've played with it and it works well. I like how you can configure where motion triggers recording (you can do portions of the shot vs. the whole camera view). He sends me pics all the time of the alerts with the neighborhood kids riding bikes thru his lawn, dogs taking a shit, mailman throwing packages, etc... Clear audio, great video, easy to setup, alerts & view from phone, etc...

    Re: Home Surveillance Options

    I use my computer and webcam. A couple 6' extensions allow me to put the camera in different rooms or outside the window. Yawcam has free software that allows me to use it as a webcam if I want to check in on the dog I left home or takes motion activated photos if I want to use it for security. It'll save to photos to the hard drive and/or email them to me. I've been happy with the adjustability of the settings and the price can't be beat.

    I really like this idea, except for having a computer on all the time. I'm thinking some of these wireless jobs just communicate to the router and I could "log in" from anywhere. I'm interested in live updates with recording of some kind on motion detect.

    Re: Home Surveillance Options

    We have several Arlo wireless systems, but just purchased a Lorex 6 4K camera system with DVR. It will stream to a smartphone, but only if you lower the resolution on the cameras you want to stream. Arlo is motion only and this will record 24/7. There’s been some minor vandalism in the neighborhood (like cars being keyed) so we wanted 24/7 recording at as high a resolution as possible.
