Hi, I live out in the woods. The street my inlaws live on have had recent armed home invasions. I would like to install a security system for them to give them some piece of mind. I have been combing over this forum and the information is massive and my knowledge limited. Through my reading, I have learned that a NVR is better and more cost effective than using a computer. That being said, which brand of NVR would offer the most value? I think it would be more cost effective to buy the NVR and with a couple of good cameras, then add cameras as my budget allows. Max cameras I would need is 8.
So...which brand would be the most cost effective. That performs well. Provides, possibly, a free cloud service. And provides good mobile apps? What would you buy? Then I guess I would integrate their cameras in with it. Right?
