I picked up a ''Swann smartphone monitoring dvr'' 4 camera system for less than $300
I cant hear well, and have a wireless doorbell that has a ringer and flasher to let me know
somone is here... and use the camera's to SEE who is at the door before opening.
got the system on Amazon - and a couple monitors for viewing.
easy to set up and works 24hrs a day. I only have it record during the night hours when I may
be sleeping - yes, it has great night vision. makes an old man feel a bit more comfortable, even
tho I have no qualms in ventilating somebody that kicked the front door open - especially if they
are big enough to do that - solid door and jambs with 2 dead bolts and 5 hinges, custom made.
about the only bother is when a spider decides he likes to be on camera hahaha have to broom him
off. plus you can block areas that give false triggers, like the street traffic.
really nice system for the bucks.
To give you some perspective to this poll: Read this CNET review on the iSmartAlarm
