I'm looking for a home system that will run on my Win 10 PC at home. It runs 24/7. I've been looking on multiple sites to try to find compatible products, but there is so much confusion out there that I thought I'd try asking in a forum. Hopefully I can get some help here.
What I'm looking for is the following:
3 (maybe 4) Wall-mounted cameras
Colour + Night Vision
Don't need zoomable
Preferably dome for neatness
Detection areas to be set up
HD (1080p or above)
I'm happy to pay for software as long as I can be confident the cameras will work with it. I'd like to have the option of emails for certain situations such as intruder detection.
I asked a network guy who installs CCTV and he recommended these: http://in.dahuasecurity.com/in/products/ipc-hdw4431m-3501.html but he also included a NVR (the Dahua DHI-NVR4104), which I don't want, as I'd rather use my PC.
However, if his advice is sound, I'm willing to reconsider letting him do this, even though the cost would be far higher.
Any advice welcome.
