A review before it's even available for sale?

Can get 1080p 4 camera kit with 1TB HDD for the same price on Amazon. Cold.

I got one of these for £70 last October from ALDI (refurbished store opening offer in Leicester) and have to say the quality isn't great. Very blocky and pixelated picture. Definitely not HD. It has smart ability, so you can view live and also playback video on your mobile/tablet/pc while away from home. But video quality lets it down. Also, very annoyingly, these don't do sound. Just video.

As always with cctv it depends what you are trying to achieve. If you're trying to identify people then this provably isn't going to cut it but if you're just trying to identify what has taken place then this MIGHT do the job.

There are all sorts of considerations....

How is the daytime lighting? Night time lighting? What about in between, ie shadows being cast from buildings or trees? Some cameras don't do well with parts of the image in bright sunlight and others in shade.

Aside from image issues, where are you storing your footage? If you keep the recorder in the lounge then any intruder could nick that during the burglary.

It's all about what works for your particular circumstance, there's loads of forums out there.

I've just installed some Hikvision IP cameras at home after much research. IP cameras will give you the best image quality available for consumers at present.

Good luck!

​What model Hikvision did you go for and where did you get them from? I only ask as I've been looking and started to get a little muddled as there are so many models to choose from.

Expensive , bought the same setup with out the hard drive for £70 off ebay and just installed a hard drive myself.

​I bought a kit with two 2cd2342 turrets and an NVR in the black Friday sales. Hikvision and Dahua seem to be where it's at for high end home cctv at present.

Lens size is an important factor that I didn't mention earlier. There are free programs on the net that will calculate field of view for different lens sizes. Hikvision do 2.8, 4 and 6mm.

2.8mm will give a wide field of view but the trade off is not much detail in the image. 6mm will give great detail but a narrow field of view.

Interesting stuff when you get into it.

As I said, it depends on what you want to achieve.

it's addictive though! I already want two more cameras!

​I already have Hikvision DS-2CD2342WD-I 4 mm Fixed Lens in my Amazon wish list. Not sure if I want/need the 4mm or 6mm lens yet. I will have to find programs you mention to help me decide:)

ipvm.com/cal…tor is a good one. You can tell it what cameras you have and adjust lens sizes to show how it affects the image. plus you can find your house on Google maps and play with fields of view.

have a look at the ipcamtalk forums.
