Home Surveillance Cameras with excellent quality video?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I currently have 4 security cameras positioned around my house. Recently, my neighbor was robbed, so I checked the recordings and then realized that the video is (1) too blurry to really identify anyone's faces, and (2) too blurry to read cars' license plates driving down the street.

So I would like to replace this with a brand new system. I'm willing to spend about $1,000 or less and would like something with great video quality (and night vision). The other thing I like about this system is you can download this Asee iPhone app and watch the cameras from it, in addition to watching them at home on an iPad (or on the computer).

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

$1000, not going to happen.

If you want IP based megapixel cameras, they start around $500 each.

The company I work for installs these

Something like this records at 1080p at 30fps

It comes with its own software all you need is storage on the network, and a windows PC to install the software on.

Geovision has iPhone and iPad apps in the app store and if you have a good upload speed at how, say 5mbps or higher it will be perfect, although its viewable at 1 mbps upload speed, it just downgrades the quality for viewing externally.
Internal recording are still 1080p

These things look fantastic!

GoPro with IR, linked to a video web server for access through your phone's browser?

I work in the surveillance industry. For $1,000 your not going to get much. I would recommend a standalone DVR but with that budget, your best bet is getting one megapixel IP camera.
Most manufactures now also offer iOS and Android apps as well. biggrin.gif

Ah, didn't realize everything would be so expensive. My current system was about $300, it's good enough to see IF someone is breaking in, but it's not good enough to actually see WHO the person is, so it's really not that useful. I can't really afford to spend a crazy amount of money on this.

The biggest problem with these Chinese manufactured Kits are the specs are fake.
For example, analog cameras are measured in TV Lines. The higher the TV Lines, the better the image quality. Some manufactures would say 620 TV Lines, which is actually around or below 400 TV Lines when tested.
Second, the IR ft distance is overly exaggerated as well.

To be honest, if you don't have the money, don't bother with the cheap kits or analog cameras. Anything short of 720p resolution will not show the face of the criminals. biggrin.gif
