Suggestions for CCTV system


Prominent Member

I am looking to setup two cameras outside. 1 at the front by the front door, there is a porch roof over hang where we currently have an outside light.
The other camera for round the back of the house.

I have a QNAP NAS which maybe could be used for storage of video?
I can run PoE cable out to both cameras.

  • 24 Hour recording so needs to have good night vision
  • Any extra info such as recording activity and providing reports - mainly for back garden at night time.
  • Would like to be able to view who is at the door when they ring the bell - I am thinking this has to be another camera or video doorbell as the front camera ideally would not be pointing just at the spot where someone is at the door.
Any suggestions appreciated. Not sure on budget yet, would like to keep costs to a minimum.
