One thing I recommend is that after you get set up, put an old vcr, plugged in, with a tape in it, in a conspicuous spot in the bldg.. That way, if someone breaks in they will see it and take the tape out thinking they got away with the evidence. Just make sure the real recording device is hidden pretty well.

I have had a Vitek system for about a year now and have been very happy with the system. I have a 8 camera system and upgraded a few cameras for longer range. Nice systyem for the price. Nice to be able to pull up the system from a remote location...Mark

I have had very good luck with Bosch Divar DVRs, I have three 16 port units, they have been flawless for over a year.
I also prefer more cameras as opposed to motion tracking cameras.

Default How bout a different twist

Ar ether eany budget friendly set-ps for teh average joe who wants to keep an eye on hi sboat but does not own a business?

My boat is in a secure area for the most part but I would love to be able to log on line or something and see whats happening around her at any given time Would have been nice to see who walked off with my fenders two weeks ago as well.

Anything out there that can be set up easily and affordably? The property owner would not mind me mounting a camera on the roof but I would need to be able to link it wirelessly probably.

Any thoughts?

I just installed a Swann system at my home, It was easy to install, came with all of the wiring, easy to setup to the internet, and has a built in DVD burner in case I want to get something off of the hard drive. This was my first shot at installing a ystem like this, and it was definitely DIY friendly.

You really don't need a motion start. 250 gig hard drive will store aton of recording, all cameras are recorded at once. Make sure there is a tcp/ip ethernet port for on line access. Bosch definitely makes a good system, as well as Pelco, Digimerge, GE and Honeywell. Good luck. Most of this can be done by someone with good networking/computer skills.

Motion start makes it much easier to find something the occured in the past, for example: you have something go missing and you do not realize it till it has been gone for 3 days, do you want to watch 72 hours of video or just watch the video from when the DVR detected motion in the field?
250gb will go pretty fast with multiple color cameras and a moderate frame rate.

Bigjimmie,

If you are in the area I have a buddy of mine has a security company that sells/installs/monitors (if you want) camera and security systems. In fact he did a system for a local marina in trade for a 24' Wellcraft.

My company does the high end stuff (NSA/NRO type applications) which would be overkill in your case. Unless of course OBL goes wondering through your marina.

If you are in the area (TC/Palm Beach) let me know and I will forward his information.
