Default Video Surveillance Systems

Hi

Looking to install a video surveillance system in my house. Does anyone have any information, experience with them.

Does anyone currently have one installed or know of any good companies in the Ottawa area.

Looking for a 4 camera exterior system with a dvr, internet able and iphone able etc.

I heard the ones from costco are not the greatest, I placed a few calls to some companies here in Ottawa will see what the shoot back with. I am looking for the dome cameras as they are blend in better when looking at the house.

I always thought the idea was NOT to have them blend in with the house?
You want something to stick out and say "Hey! ... I'm watching you..." =P

The Costco ones are built to meet a price, not quality.

I install a lot of cameras. You do get what you pay for.

Any specific recommendations for a system that performs well and is also at a good price point?
