Hiya, I've been keen on looking into internal CCTV set ups for the home. Most kits come at £100+ closer to £200 if your wanting a proper set up. Unfortunatly thats kinda out of the budget.
What im after is 1 possibly 2 camera's internally placed, and a recording device so that i can play back. I've dabbled on some webcams before with motion detection etc, but they seem to just switch off after 15-20mins of inactive use (no good really!). Also USB is a little limited in length of cable, I've seen camera's which has cat5 cables etc they seem interesting but no idea where to start looking up on these sorts of things! random stab at google seems not much help.. Is the most inexpensive way to go via PC or are there any cheap CCTV camera's and DVR recorders? and No i cant use VHS to record as tape length is only 6hrs max, Im looking for something more on perminant, alternatively something with motion detection to reduce the record time.
Suggestions welcome, anything to rattle my brain to find a solution would be great..! or a solution would be even better :D
Thanks for reading!
