Who to use? Want server software and PoE ethernet, preferably scalable easily. Not stuff from Chinese eBay. Cost effective but not cheap!

Synology with Surveillance station and the hikvision cameras. Can get them cheaper from China but load of UK sellers.

Hikvision DS-2CD2032-I around 100 from UK sellers; as John said, can get them cheaper from China but there's plenty of fakes about.

Software, what ever you got access to. Surveillance Station is pretty reasonable although i wouldn't go out my way to use it though - only use it because i already had a Synology/XPEnology system running.

I've found that most aren't proper POE i.e. 48v..

Its easier to buy a normal 12v IP camera and buy the power injectors/splitters

Milestone Systems for Software.

Dependant on what size system you are having but i would Look at Essential - http://www.milestonesys.com/Software/XProtect-IP-Video-Surveillance/xprotectessential/

can download a free trial.

How much you looking to spend on software and cameras?

Where possible id stay away from injectors, few reasons, cheap ones have a high failure rate, also they are not that cost effective. If you stick a managed PoE switch in you have the ability to remotely reboot the cameras.

Having just fitted a load of Hikvision cameras I am seriously impressed.

They were likely to be better than the ones suggested above but I am sold on the brand.

Tempted to get a few thrown up around the house here for peace of mind.

I have a microserver but I am wondering if its worth just getting a separate NVR/DVR? Any thoughts on that?

I have been looking at this kit. Seems reasonable for the money.

Got one of those unifi cameras to try, it's pretty crap compared to the hikvision stuff.

Got one of the access points too, none of you mentioned that they aren't 802.3af compliant so don't work with most PoE switches, which is really crap.

I spotted that when looking at them for cameras instead of Hikvisions; seems you have use their own switches/injectors

Saying that, i believe the new 'pro' camera is compliant......

Shouldn't have had to tbh. For the cost of sending a PoE injector with every piece of equipment they could have just built proper 48v PoE into it to begin with.

Camera is still crap though.

It's big, mount isn't very good and the worst bit about it is the way the Ethernet cable comes out the bottom, one of the worst designs I've seen.

I will admit that the lac of PoE on non pro devices is crap but I really rate the Wifi, it's a piece of piss to set up and works a dream. Infact, just bought 6 more for another school I'm working with now.

Will probably give the camera a miss in that case!
