    8 camera system with hard disk newegg $500..hardwired. Signal quality on wireless varies and any other signal in the area and you're screwed. Most of the chinese dvr's are decent, with web access and a nice host of features including motion detecting switching of a hardwired contact ( which I use to trigger an x-10 phone dialer)

    I have one really high quality camera in an enclosure watching my front gate

    Trying to stay wireless if at all possible....I looked at Uniden, Lorex, Svat, Samsung etc.....Right now Lorex has a somewhat decent wireless system......But really wanting some tangible feedback b-4 I buy..

    Maybe we have some GH members that are in the Security/Alarm business that can offer some words of wisdom..

    Thanks

    Most CHEAP wireless is crap. Most Cheap camera stuff is Crap too. Most cheap stuff won't hold up
    with the police, because it doesn't have a water mark and than it can be altered. Most of the stuff coming in from overseas is getting into the states and it's not UL or FCC approved too. The people that should be watching this are not. If you have a commercial building most states will not let you do it, and if you do you could be fined and you won't be able to use the video too. Many people don't know this stuff.
