    Hi,

    I'm very new to this area and want to setup a home cctv system to monitor the exterior of my property. I have a Thecus N5810 Pro NAS and a D-Link DES-1210-08P POE switch. My idea is to use this in conjunction with some IP cameras to record to the NAS. I've therefore been looking at some IP cameras which can live outdoors using POE.

    Is this is a sensible way to go? Any pitfalls I should consider? If this makes sense then could you recommend some decent cameras? I think 3 or 4 should give me the coverage I require. I want day and night capabilities.

    Thanks.
