I have recently refurbished my house. I have run Cat 5 cable to all the locations at the joist ends of the house where I wish to fit cameras. All the cat 5 cables run to a one point under my staircase where there is a power source and internet connection. I have the capacity to fit 8 x cameras in total, I plan to do the work myself.
  • The cameras are covering all areas around the house
  • I would like the cameras in black
  • I would like to record 24 hours per day onto an NVR
  • The property and surroundings have no street lights outside so is pitch black at night
  • I would like to be able to access the cameras/recordings via my phone/ipad
  • I would like a bullet camera to view a gate which is approx 20m from my house and turrets elsewhere
I have had a couple of quotes but am not really sure how to compare cameras/NVRs/are they quoting suitable eqpt for what I need, any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

firstly probably not a good idea to put accusense cameras on a K series.

You need to look at the right cameras in the right locations to do the right job
