residential cctv with ip

Recommended Posts

Please help with this issue.


I am leaving on vacation for 3 days. I have dogs and my daughter is going to feed the dogs. I have something in one of my rooms that i dont want her to see. I am going to lock the door with a lock (inside door to bedroom)...


Here is what i want to do...I want two cameras....one in the bedroom that will be locked with light on. and one camera in my living room kitchen dining room area as an overview of that area to check on dogs.


I also want to be able to check on them via the internet ....with either laptop, ipad3 or android phone with 4g.


I need to be able to connect with a wire to each camera (sound optional) and record (i have external 2tb usb recorder and both mac and pc computers) continuous video for those 72 hours that i will be gone.


I need a simple system that will accomplish this task . please help as this needs to be done in the next week


Thanks so much

I'd say that You should invest in analogue DVR + analogue cameras. This way You'll be able to see preview via internet (also phone apps dedicated to each DVR) and You'll have a guarantee that system will be stable. Using IP cameras would be better, but it might be more expensive to buy a system that will have all the functionality You desire.
