Its about 1200 feet from my house to my dock. No power down there. Never had issues with anyone messing with my boat. However, it is accessible from the road and I had someone take a car down there late fall and get it stuck...ripped the crap out of my property getting it out of there. I've got an old trail camera over there now. I would have loved to catch those bastards down there...I'm looking at a day with a skidder to fix all the ruts they made

I'm sure it was some kids down there drinking or screwing or both.....

A friend of mine just purchased this unit from Sams club
http://www.samsclub.com/sams/revo-16...navAction=push

He choose this unit because the system can be viewed live on most smart phones or any internet PC/MAC. It will also automatically notify you with Push Notifications when any or all of the cameras detect motion. Also You don't have to pay a penny for that service all you need is the internet connection.

He plans on installing it this week

That's a very nice system from what I have read. I don't think I need 16 channels right now. Sure there is a ton of room for expansion but I don't see me ever needing to record 16 feeds.

I'm thinking at the most 6 or 8 channels which should come in around $500 even with 4 cameras in the bundle.

Be surprised at what you find you would want a camera for! I put one in the garage so I can tell if the door did open or not from inside the house (detached garage) so I can safely operate the remote start in the Jeep. It isn't recorded, but it was a "this is kind of cool" after thought.

The other side to that also is that if you don't do Pan/Tilt cameras you may need to double up at some spots to get all the angles covered. Cameras are cheap, head units are usually what cost the most so go bigger there up front. You can easily upgrade cameras as new technology adapts, but the recording unit should be spec'd to last.

Camera resolution is critical as facial recognition with 400 line system i had was poor from ~ 70 ft away to the point i couldnt id the person. 600tlv systems like the sams club one are becoming more affordable so may want to ensure any system you buy is the higher resolution.

I haven't played with any of the settings or changed anything from the defaults though, so I'm not sure if I am on the highest resolution or not. I just hooked it all up and haven't really given it the time to mess with it.

The more I read the more I think building a system is better then one of the prepackaged deals. IE 8 or 16 of the same cheapo cameras are not going to do me any good if I only use 3 of them and then get 2 other longer range cameras.

I think this Q-SEE QT 526 DVR might be a good base to start with.

Anyone have info on running non same brand cameras and DVRs. I would assume there are a couple of different standards.
