I am looking to install 1-2 cameras to monitor my backyard. I am thinking about installing the cameras under the roof/eaves – sort of like what’s shown here:

I am looking for a solution which meets most (or ideally all) these requirements:

  • High quality outdoor camera which is weatherproof and robust
    • Stable operation at low temperature (20-30F) as well as high temperature (90-100F)
    • DVR with storage for at least 30 days of continuous recording so that it’s possible to go back and view recordings by date/time
    • Video recordings must contain audio as well
    • Ability to enable/disable motion detection
    • Ability to define “motion detection areas” in the recording view
    • Extremely good night vision
    • High quality audio/video recording
    • Ability to remotely adjust view (tilt, zoom)
    • Access to DVR Web UI over an IP network (wired and wireless)
    • Ability to view audio/video recordings via DVR Web UI on PC or phone
    • Ability to view real-time camera feed from PC or phone
    • Ability to configure trigger/alert notifications
    • Intuitive and easy-to-use interface

Any recommendations?

Thanks

Hello,

  If you have 2 cameras recording at a max of 2MP resolution at 20 frames per second recording 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for 30 days, a 6TB hard drive should be sufficient for your needs. A recorder with one hard drive should work just fine for you.

 I would suggest an NVR (network video recorder) for the IP Network.  Many of our IP cameras have motorized zoom lens but it sounds like you might want to look at a PTZ (pan tilt zoom) camera if you want to be able to control the pan and zoom remotely. 

 A 4CH NVR would be suitable for your current needs.
