    Hi, I have installed an old Alien CCTV system in the house I moved into just over a year ago. It’s a 1tb analogue system with 4 dome cameras. Could anyone recommend a direct replacement for this system that won’t break the bank and has decent app connectivity? I have tried to do research but I just get more and more confused with what I read.
    Cheers.

    How are the cameras powered? Are the power over coax or have their own separate supply?

    They have a separate supply I believe.

    If you have co-ax type cable for video and a separate power supply and don’t want to change or reroute the existing cables there are some very good TVI systems available with up to 5 mp cameras.

    Hikvision DS-7204 HUHI-K1 DVR or whatever the latest model is, Hikvision ColorVu TVI cameras are a little more expensive up to 5 mp and colour at night well worth it.
