Not sure where is a good place to buy cameras these days.

Most of the cameras I have installed were professionally and the sales guys would buy them from suppliers or the manufacturer. I have bought a few on my own and went bargain shopping on the internet a couple of things I found.

Many companies will not warranty cameras purchased from “non authorized” dealers which basically means anyplace that is cheap the cameras will have no manufacturer warranty.

Many of the bargain camera are counterfeit and sup par fakes. Amazon had a tons of fakes last time I bought some, an established dealer will probably have better quality control then random stuff from Amazon.

Hope that might help on your search.

Yeah, HikVision has some nice consumer products, also including kits of 4/8/16 cameras. Just make sure to get the better quality ones, with better camera resolution and bigger camera IR range. The price is usually very good.
Oh, and they have good mobile app to check the cameras too! Easy set-up and connection. If you have any question just ask.

WIFI can and will give you symmetrical speeds on download and upload. your main bottleneck for the upload is gonna be the speed your ISP provisions you.

Depending on your level of interest and DIY ability its better to run ethernet cat 5 for them if possible. Yeah its a pain to get in the attic and the eaves for outdoor cams but you wont have any wifi issues and you can run them directly to your storage solution. AND if no AC power is handy you can use POE (power over Ethernet) takes a different switch than a switch that does not have POE built in. I run mine thru a switch on my home pc network and use a external hard drive in a safe location. If someone gets in the house they wont get the files. Lots of ways to do it. But I still like the HikVision for cameras and I may upgrade soon. I check mine once every few days just to make sure all is OK but otherwise dont worry about them.

One option is - 2 camera systems.

One obvious, one hidden.

The hidden one positioned so that it captures an intruder trying to obscure the obvious camera.


Also, multiple cameras in each system.
