IP can use an NVR or CaaS, which doesn't need a separate storage device.

JimN- looking for a camera system that is cloud based via wireless upload. What’s youre recommendation?

We have two gates about 1/4 mile apart from each other want two cameras per gate. We have power and telephone/data at each gate. Right now we use telephone/Potts line for entry system bu plan to change to IP when we add camera system.

Want to be able to easily look on camera online and record up to 10 days at a minimum.

Jgraham is this a neighborhood or your house?
Check out flocksafety.com. Solar powered, cellular wireless camera that automatically reads license plates separates footage into motion triggered stills and analyzes the images for objects and colors that are searchable. 30 day cloud storage and web interface.

Full disclosure: I work there!

Running the cables won't be an issue for me as I already have flood lights at each corner of the house. I do need one long range camera, about 125 feet to cover the shop and the boat.

I'm kind of thinking a combination of 3 outdoor cameras that cover each door, 1 to cover the shop and then one indoor camera to cover the main living room.

I figure I'll go with someone's DVR, don't know which one as I have no info on brands. It seems most have auto back up features to back up to a NAS box or computer. I'm sure I want phone notification on motion.

What about camera resolutions. I see a lot of 480s, 600s and what not. I assume higher res offers more detail at the cost of drive space. How much drive space is taken up by 4 or 5 cameras on full time record? IE how many days do you get before it starts record over old video?
Don't bother with 480 resolution- most, if not all, manufacturers are making high def cameras for the same price as low res from two years ago. Analog cameras still work great and they don't come with the requirement for licensing when viewing recorded video over the internet (the license is for each camera, to pay for using the internet, according to the suppliers and manufacturers). In addition, you can adjust the setup of the cameras if they have RS-485 over coax and that's great if you notice the light sensitivity isn't right but you aren't on site.

The recording setup and hard drive determine the amount of storage, but with 8 cameras, the DVR at the home of one of my customers stores 5 full days with a 1TB drive set to record constantly, rather than only using motion-activation. IMO, while it will record 5 seconds before the event trigger and up to 10 seconds after, the sensitivity setting can make it possible to miss something critical, so I don't use motion activation. Setting it to record using motion also uses more HD space. The DVR has one bay and DW recommends Western Digital Purple or a Seagate model- the VMaxA1 models of DVR handle up to 8TB.

Web-site says $1,500 annually per camera (https://www.flocksafety.com/pricing-list). I like the idea of the license plate reading technology they provide. I would be interested in facial recognition too. I see local law-enforcement frequently posting pictures (twitter or Facebook) asking the public if they can identify someone.

I have an interest in this topic as well. I like cloud based solutions, but I want local storage too. What if the bad guys disable internet connection prior to entering the property?

My ideal system:
1) POE cameras
2) Local and Cloud storage
3) Movement alerting - (text to multiple phone numbers and e-mail accounts)
4) Ability to monitor dual sites (150 miles apart) using one account on sites that don't share a common internet connection (but both have reliable internet)
5) High def (day and night)
6) Affordable - not willing to pay $100 a month for a service.

Bonus features:
1) License plate reader
2) Facial recognition

The only way to disable cellular on a wireless camera is to disable the camera which in turn will disable an onsite storage too.
