Video Surveillance configuration questions
I need to get a video surveillance system because our house has been vandalized at night. I have gotten 4 estimates and 4 totally different approaches. Does anyone have experience with the various types of cameras (HD vs IP), how many megapixels are enough for identification, what area is covered by different camera focal lengths, bullet vs dome cameras, etc. I was able to install a pretty elaborate home automation system and a new security system which are now integrated together but the video surveillance has me stumped. Thank you.
