I was told and had read the best wiring method was the siamese coax/power which is what I went with.
I didn't do a lot of reading, but what is the star light tech they speak of? Is it just a coined named for the IR night cameras?
I was also looking at getting 1 PTZ with auto tracking. It just follows anything moving. Lets you cover a wide area. Once the motion has stop it will center up on your pre-defined point.
Added a link in first post to some legal stuff about home surveillance. Seems pretty basic.
