Sorry if there is a more suitable forum for this.

My mom has had some issues lately with vandalism. She doesn't live in a real bad neighborhood, but is seems like there are pricks everywhere nowadays. The neighborhood I grew up in now has gang activity and my mom calls in reporting such. I guess that pisses them off, so a couple months ago someone keyed MS13 Bitch into her SUVs hood. Yesterday, there was a used condom on her front step. Enough is enough. Time to catch these pricks on camera.

What I'm looking for:
3 - 4 camera system that is capable of night vision. It needs to have a clear picture, enough so to identify a face at 20-30 feet. I have a 1TB hard drive to store the footage on. It needs to run through windows XP on their PC.

Looking to spend $400- $600 on a system.

Wiring wouldn't be and issue, I just need to know what system I should use, what wiring to get and how I can set them up to record on their PC.

Please help me help out. I want to make sure this doesn't continue.

Ah, well, sir, I feel like a, like a slice of butter... melting on top of a big-ol' pile of flapjacks... yeah.

Costco. Several all-in-one systems. Most using h.264 orr MP4.
Within budget.

Take a look at the Cantek cameras. They have some 2.8mm to 9mm 600TVL cameras with 95' of IR. Great cameras for the price
