Camera System for House

Recommended Posts

Looking for a reliable camera system for my house. I need 2-4 camera system with decent night vision and was thinking NVR system with IP cameras would be easiest to install. Any recommendations?

I'm sure you can search the site and find tons of references of people asking the same question.

Quick info -

If your budget is less then say $800 then just go to costco or sams and pick up

a Lorex or Swann 8channel system that comes with 4 3MP cameras. If you don't have one of those nearby then

whatever you get look for at least 1 or 2MP IP cameras that comes with a NVR. There are also 1 or 2MP TVI or CVI analog cameras

systems that will come with a DVR, these are great value systems for a home as well.


Hikvision/Swann/LTS value brands are good residential type cameras that will come in 1,2,3,4 MP quality

then you can use their NVR or use your own computer to run a vms software like Blue Iris, Exacq, or avigilon.

But here you'll generally need a budget of say $1200+
