My plan is to install about 4 camera outside my home. I would like to route all ethernet cables from the attic to the basement where I would maintain the hard drive unit. The camera would only have to be motion activated. Being that this is all new to me, I have been looking at Costco for their systems. I would not require internet viewing features and basically would just have a separate computer monitor to keep an eye on things or to review any events. This system is basically to have a video log of someone trespassing or their dog doing damage to my property. This would allow me to have evidence to show the officer. A camera that seems to work for me would be this one. Lorex 8MP 4K IP Audio Turret / Dome Camera LNE8950A, Because I am clueless, I guess all I need is the wire and a recorder? Like I said I need some help with this so that my system would be more what I need then what the Costco systems offer. Thanks for your help.
