I think this is the right forum. If not, mods feel free to move it.
We are looking to buy some security cameras for our home. Here’s what we are thinking of so far.
8 cameras more or less. Some inside and some outside so preferably wifi.
Add to above a doorbell cam.
Some sort of cloud storage. What’s the sense of having the files saved on your home computer when they steal your computer?
Along with that an app where you can monitor the cams on your phone.
Not sure about a service. What does the $15 - $30 per month really get you?
Along with that, I’d prefer to buy my cameras straight up rather than pay 3X the price (or worse rent) from the alarm company.
Vivant seems to be the big name out there. Aside from the scam of someone stealing a Vivant sign and coming to your door (not falling for that), what should I know about them?
Anyone who can guide me in getting started for what I’m looking for? Any questions I should be asking?
