I want to catch or at least deter the theiving scum bags from entering our home. We are very isolated with no neighbours. It's a very nice place to be, but unfortunately we are not far enough away from an area that has more than its fair share of thieves. This makes us easy targets, and after an incident at the weekend, I want to do something about it. So does anybody know much about surveilance systems? I'd like to install about 4 cameras around the outside of the house, and use an existing PC to capture the footage on a 2 or 3 day cycle. I'm sure I have the technical ability to install and use such equipment, but I don't know where to begin, what to buy, and how much it should cost. I can't afford much, so I'm hoping that doing the job myself will make it relatively inexpensive. I'd really appreciate any help or advice you can offer me. Thanks in advance.
