    Hi,

    I require a CCTV security system that will give me good clarity if poss, mainly night time and a bit day use.

    I have a long garden out the front (30-40 mtrs) and a small back yard where i keep my van on a night.

    Its a rough neighbourhood, gates get kicked in and usual stuff.

    decent gear would be best but not highly expensive, not cheap either.

    2 - 3 cameras, recorder, a way to view(old plasma?)?


    Any help much appreciated.

    You'll be wanting Infra Red (IR) lighting for night time - unless you have loads of light from some other source. A separate IR lamp is usually better than a camera with integrated IR. Make sure that your camera and lens can see IR.

    Best cameras have colour during the day and black and white at night. The resolution is higher and works better with the IR. Beware of the "starlight" cameras - they can take ages to produce a single frame and are pretty much usless for fast-moving action in the dark.

    Loads of options for DVRs (digital video recorders) etc...

    Better spending the money on physical security such as gates that can't be kicked in.
