Free download app, so you can view from anywhere.
Recommend you go for the 'pro' cameras and I think they are very good.
Just search swann CCTV in eBay, there are hundred to choose from

My recommendation would be nothing less than a 900tvl system. That is the camera resolution. Anything less just doesn't have enough resolution to be clear enough to make out a persons identity. A 2 terabit DVR will give you plenty of recording time. Nothing less than 1tb.

My system is a Swann setup with 8 cameras. I set mine to only record on motion, which of course can often be bugs. Should an event happen it will most likely be during the day, and I can quickly go back and find the event. It can be viewed on my iPhone, iPad, and my laptop.

You have to pass 4 "No Trespassing" signs to get to our house. No one pays attention to them. I put up two "Smile You Are On Camera" and let me tell you...traffic all but stopped driving up our driveway. I put cameras everywhere, and even had to buy 200ft cables for the cameras that watch over our private driveway. I catch every car coming and going...plus a few turkeys, some deer, foxes, and the racoons.

I fitted a Swann system to my Mothers place after a local scrote tried to doorstep her. Got it from Makro for under 200. 4 external cameras & 500gb HDD. Not had much success with the remote viewing yet, but I suspect that's a router issue.
Can't fault the kit for the money though.

I'd something like

Qvis NVR-4POE for the recorder

Qvis AMB-MB1.3 for the cams

They connect with RJ45 connections and are plug and play

I've got a crimp tool if you want to borrow one

Swann SWDVK-914254F 9 Channel D1 CCTV Security Kit With 4 Pro-535 Cameras

this is 100 cheaper. I'm no expert, same manufacturer so there must be a reason why, but still 1tb drive, can take 8 cameras, comes with 4 and does night vision?

Thanks for the heads up Crusher the camera fixing seems to be a lot better than the ones I have now which are quite flimsy.

You can get the SwannView app on your Android / iphone Dave.

I wanted to fit mine today but was stopped by the heavy rain but hopefully I should have it done on Saturday and have them up and running.
