Lets keep this simple. Just got home and the house was broken into, two windows damaged, stuff all over the place. We were gone 45 minutes running. As far as I can tell they didn't make it to the living room with all gear, three laptops and an iPad. They did get $40.00 out of her purse. Police think that we arrived and they were still here because of the risky exit point, I'm glad I didn't walk in on it.
So, I'd like some opinions on cameras, I think I can get by with just five, maybe six. I'd like to entertain the idea of doing the install myself, and having some sort of recording device for all channels. Screw deterring these guys, I want them caught. I'm hoping someone here has some sort of experience with these systems and will have some input. TIA.
