    My brother owns a small deli and he's looking to install a 4 or 5 camera
    remote surveillance system. He'd like to be able to check in on things via
    the Internet. The deli already has a DSL connection. I'm the computer guy in
    the family with pro service/repair experience under my belt. I'd like to
    help him out, hopefully keeping costs down, and point him in the right
    direction for a good system that we could install ourselves. Can anyone
    recommend a good, but not too $$$ remote surveillance system , 5 wired or
    wireless cams at most? Thanks.

    We're trying to get a 4 or 5 channel remote system for under $2500. The
    inside of the deli has rooms roughly 10'x10', 12'x10', 15'x10', and a camera
    at the back door where the dumpster is about 20' away. The rooms are lit by
    regular incandescent lighting. No storage requirement is needed at this
    time. A POS interface is not required at this time. The only things I would
    see expanding in the future are the storage and POS interface. I hope that
    covers it. BTW, thank you for your time and help.
  3. Try they have a lot of dyi stuff and it decent to high
    quality depending what you want to spend. if the dsl is not static and is
    dynamic it can be tricky getting access all the time as well.when the ip
    number flips.
  4. Prices are starting to improve on a lot of pro quality CCTV gear. A reliable 4-channel system can be had for well under $2,000.
    For example, Speco Technologies makes a model DVR-4CF/120 4-camera, Internet ready DRV that's pretty decent. It comes with a 120
    gig hard drive. They retail for around $730. Good quality color cameras can be had for less than $200 apiece.
    For example, the Nuvico camera you mentioned retails for under $280. They also have a NVCC-HWE49N-D camera with a 4-9mm varifocal
    lens that sells for less than $175. It's a "bullet" style outdoor camera like the one you spoke of so no housing is required. I've
    tried a number of Nuvico cameras and they do a good job. Speco has made improvements to their line over the last five or six
    years -- much better than their old stuff.

    Those are retail prices. I got the impression that the OP is in the trade. If so he can get the same for less from his
    distributor. There are a number of other CCTV manufacturers around that are beginning to give Pelco, Sony and the rest serious
    competition at lower prices. One of the fringe benefits of this is that the big players are starting to be more flexible about
    pricing. We're getting Sony, Pelco and several other majors at better prices than before. OTOH, we get a better bang/buck ratio
    selling Nuvico, Speco and a few other lines.

    I installed a Clover 4 Ch DVR I bought at Sams Club Part of WalMart for
    299.00 160Gig HD Remote access, it works perfectly, streams well over a DSL
    Line you can Pan tilt zoom a camera connected to it. That's my 2 cents
    it has a slide out removable HD key locked.

    I can provide you with 8 channel Remote Surveillance Systen plus
    Visual Verification subsystem and 6 CCD cameras with the price under $$
    $. The video streaming bitrate is around 30~80kpbs for CIF 20FPS.
    So it is perfect for ADSL net env. If you want to watch the live video
    \, pleasecontact with me.
    Meanwhile, my company is at China, so We can provide you a relative
    lost price.

    The problem is, that the cost of shipping is $$$$$$$$, from China.

    And ..... you oughta listen in on a troubleshooting call from the
    States, at least once, before you order.

    They DO send you a trouble shooting manual with the system, but you
    have to choose the trouble that your having from either Column A or
    Column B
