We are looking to install a surveillance system on one property with, ideally, remote viewing capability from another sites, getting notifications and being able to view footage manually if possible. Both sites have Internet access. Eventually, we need systems on multiple properties but for budget reasons, we are starting with the one.

At a minimum, the site would have 3 cameras. Likely we would like to start with a basic system and add cameras when money becomes available or when we determine more coverage is needed. There is a separate garage about 20' from the main building on which we need to mount at least one camera.

The minimum installation would be a camera on the garage covering the back of the main building and one on the main building covering the garage, and one on the porch covering the main building front entrance. A fourth camera might be warranted above the porch roof as we have heard of people going out on the porch roof to access apartments. The garage and fourth location would likely have around a 100' run to get to the recorder location.

We are open to solutions, from a DIY NVR with turnkey cameras to a turnkey system. We need or want to have enough resolution to use pictures in court or with the Police if needed. Budget is a major concern, but the resolution and the ability to add cameras are very important. We have two other sites minimum we want to add systems to, so a turnkey system with more than 3 cameras would be fine as maybe we could split the cameras up using a second NVR.

Unless advised otherwise, we are thinking of using POE based systems if possible using motion detection based storage. For the garage, we are thinking to run the cable along with the cable and Internet cables. Would we need to use a wire support cable?

We are currently researching Lorex, Samsung, Hikvision, Dahua, ...
