If it helps you, it's a little bit cheaper (£299.97) at Laptops Direct Link

I'd opt for the thermal cams over the 2tb hard drive. I have the cams in the package your looking at and you get plenty of false triggers.

OK thanks , I don't have any clue what thermal cams are or false triggers but I will be leaving it on recording 24/7 . I only want 4 camera that can take decent video and a recorder that will store it and forget about it until I need to see the clips .

​hi, basically thermal feature means it will pickup heat signatured e.g humans, large animals, hot engines etc. Cams without this will trigger everything that moves e.g clothes blowing in the wind, leaves, plastic bag flying around. These are called dalse triggers as the trigger the cam to record due to movement but they are not important. Cams with thermal feature stops this from happening so you have less "false triggers" wasting space on hard drive.

Thanks , I want something that can record 24/7 . I have issues with neighbours throwing beer cans and dog poo as my house is near ally way . also we have lots of cats and foxes running around so the thermal will probably pick that up anyway.

Thermal is a huge advantage, the 5% is £15 so £5 more than this deal. With the thermal you can set it to record only when human or animals are detected, that's worth a lot more than the extra TB.

The Costco deal is a special offer, you normally only get to cameras for this price, this is the latest kit, you'd be bonkers to buy the debenhams over this.

Ahhh Christmas. Put the expensive presents under the tree, get paranoid and fit CCTV

​thanks for the reply . I am inclined to agree with you as my knowledge on CCTV or any other cameras is as good (or bad) as google and YouTube . I was planning to leave all 4 cameras on and recording on 24/7 basis ( I'm not even sure if they can do it ) . Can the thermal camera be set to record 24/7 if necessary ? Thanks in advance .

​hi thanks for reply. Can it be set so only one camera records 24/7 and the other set on thermal mode so they only record if something is moving . Thanks in advance.

Yes, each camera is fully customizable, you can even set it not to record dead areas such as walls etc that may be in the cameras view

Maplins have a 5mp 4 channel system for £269.99 last week

I can only see Maplins 5mp system for £479.99 even after £120 off . Bargain if you got that for £269.99

Is the Costco one quite easy to install? Take it it’s just mounting to required position and then run cable to central box?

Good for swann

I hate swann's software since the update.

Costco version is only 4 channel whereas Debenhams one is 8 channel for extra £10. Don't be fooled by Laptops Direct as prices are exVAT

Just found this one which I was after on the Swann website. £294, with 6 cameras. Next cheapest is £389 Debenhams Plus. Ordered one
