Home CCTV Recommendations.

I'm looking at replacing my cctv cameras they are 9 years old now and they record onto my home p.c. not dvd.

Can anyone in the know or trade recommend a decent system for 4 cameras (colour) for outside use and that can also be monitored by using a smartphone.

I've just been there and done that!

3 Sony cameras, two 1000TVL Bullet Vari-Focal & 1 Vari-Focal 1000TVL Dome.
1 iSmart Qvis Atlantic 4 channel DVR with a 1tb hard drive.

I have it streaming online so can view on an iPhone or Ipad using a free App, or on a laptop using IE.

It took a couple of days to install and about a week to figure out how to view on the net but it was worth it!

Still exploring all the features and settings but so far so good.

If you can connect while using your wifi but not when your using another connection such as 3g then you need to check your ip port numbers.

I installed a Swann system about 2 months ago. I'm VERY pleased with it. 500gb hard drive and up to 4 cameras, (came with 2) and not alot of money at all.
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
