I need to donate two outdoor cameras and a DVR to a local church. Most of the systems I see on Ebay that are affordable seem not to explain how the cameras are wired to the DVR, or they seem to come already wired with a fixed length cable. Also, they all seem to have a 12 volt wall wart included, leading me to believe that I would need to provide a nearby outlet.

Can someone recommend a system that would have two cameras, a DVR and use wiring that is a more professional approach?

My budget for this is around $200, if that's reasonable. If not, let me know what I should expect to pay.

PM is fine, or email me info (at) SIBTA (dot) com.

Thank you in advance.

You can get wireless Foscam Pan tilt cams with a 32 gig SD card for less that 100 each. Don't need DVR. They give you a web site to store images also.

Thank you. Unfortunately, wireless will not work reliably in this very old masonry and iron church.

Last time I was in Harbor Freight they had a nice little system that was cheap not sure of the quality.

If it was built in the last 10 years don't expect it to work right.

You might want to up the donation figure a little. You can get a high quality Nuvico Model No: CD-H2N-B for less than $100 each. You will need a siamese cable (coax and power wiring) to each camera. You will need a 12 VDC plug in wall power supply back at the DVR end to power the cameras.

The DVR is another question. There are deals all over the place for a 4 channel DVR in the $100-$200 range. These are basic units but will do the job. For just a little more money, the Nuvico ED-C405 which lists for $500 can be found for a lot less from places like Alarmax and Ademco.

The Revo branded system sold on Amazon is pretty good bang for the buck...although higher than your $200 budget.
