Well I placed an order this morning with Security Camera King. I found a 5% discount code on the webs.
Total cost was right at a grand.
8 Channel Ultimate MINI Series SKU: DVR-LT8240MHD This is a Dahua brand DVR which has a built in Linux OS.
This DVR is about $250 bucks less then the other ones they have because it does not come with a DVD burner. I know I'll never use that feature because I can just pull the video off the HD over the network if I need to burn it.
The 8 camera external power supply is standard.
I also got two of their base line indoor/outdoor IR cameras. 600TVL Indoor/Outdoor IR Dome #OD-CM600IR50-B
For the main living room I went with a camera with a few more features and an adjustable angle camera because I have to mount it in a vaulted ceiling.
The camera that will cover my shop and boat has a longer ranger.
700TVL Varifocal IR Vandal Dome # VD-EL700IR100L2812
To round out the bundle I ordered a 500 foot roll of siamese cable, crimper tool, and bunch of ends.
I'll let you guys know how it works out.
Gone, out doing soft recreational past time with overpowered boat!
