I've dabbled in CCTV for quite a few years now and have a load of cameras that plug into a scart socket on the TV or video etc . Times have moved on and the type of system to get now is the DVR with upto 4 cameras . These things run 247 and record directly on to a hard drive inside the unit . Some come with HDD 's and other's dont , you just add a drive yourself . The units can record upto four cameras and have multiplex facility to allow you to view all the cams or one at a time . I have always wanted a system like this for a while now and finally bought a portable one from Maplin a few weeks back .Bought 4 cameras [ 2 x CMOS & 2 x CCD ] from the same place too . Fantastic quality from the CCD models and they light up the area in total darkness extremely well. They sell complete systems for around £200 which is not bad , but you can buy cheaper systems from ebay directly from China . Have a look on ebay and see what's going . HTH .

Makro are always doing deals on CCTV. Worth a punt..Good Luck
