Surveillance Camera System Help?!

Recommended Posts

Hey all! I know this isn't the right place, but i am interested in purchasing a camera system for my APT and store. Is this one pretty good? if so I plan on ordering it ASAP, as I do like the software it comes with to view the cameras. I am just making sure it is going to be pretty good quality.

I personally would get something like that from Newegg.com ... but I get everything from them.

Here's a link to their surveillance stuff. >> http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCategory.aspx?SubCategory=521&name=Surveillance-Cameras

I also wouldn't buy a kit. You'll most likely get worse cameras in a kit. That link to the one on eBay looks dated, I'm not a surveillance expert though... although I have worked with a system like that (Lorex). HORRIBLE web interface, motion detection picked up flys but the resolution was horrible. I'm not saying all Lorex stuff sucks, that was the only time I've ever dealt with them. I don't know if it was just old or something but I recommended to the owner that he get something more modern ----- be careful, read reviews before you buy and if you can buy in person. Some of the companies who make those are very sketchy. And if the eBay seller isn't really listing the brand then that can be a red flag too. Just a heads up IMO.

Well yes the cameras are no name brand. But it says the lens on them are Sony, I mean it looks nice to me...I can't be that bad? Right...I think I am going to order it anyways, I just hope I am not making the wrong move.
