For those who have a security camera system in their haunts, what type to you use?

With the help of my IT department, I put together one from CCTVhotdeals.com using a capture card, computer built just for capturing, and 16 various cameras. Almost finished installing.

We purchased our system from X10. Here's a link to the latest promotion they sent us...


You might browse around their site and check them out. Hope it helps!

Mathew Brady! As long as the people infront of the lense can be convinced not to move for at least 5 minutes!
I have a Radio Shack antique system that really needs to go to ground. (then become covered up with ground)

I have 32 cameras. We installed them. I bought some extra wire, etc, have about 2k in vested. The cameras are night vision, infared and motion activated. I can log onto the internet and watch the system live, as could you if you had the password. Individual cameras can be set to send me an email/text when they detect motion. The dvr records 30 days before overwrite. I went to a local pawn shop and bought two 32" flat screens for the monitors. Very nice set up and we'll be doing "live feeds" on the outdoor screen this year. From a security stanpoint, these are a dream. I bught the first 16 last year then bought the second 16 this season.

I still consider myself a home haunter, but this was one of the first investments I made when we started putting our haunt together. We have a Qsee 8 camera DVR system with night vision and real time recording. I leave it running the entire month of October, and we've never had any problems with it. I believe it cost around $425 shipped from tiger direct.
