Well it's time to get in the 21st century, looking for a monitoring system for my multi's (5 plex and 8 plex) for the common and exterior areas. Wouldn't mind paying the 10 bucks a month for 30 day storage of all video 24/7. Ideas and reccomendations? Thanks! --76.105.x.x

I had cameras (that I myself) installed at my buildings in Korea Town, Silver Lake and Hollywood. All tenants signed an agreement that I was installed camera's in common areas such as interior hallways, parking, laundry room ,etc.

So my exterior camera's were in a metal box with a shatter proof glass front shield. The camera's on the inside hallways where mounted on the ceiling, 9 feet up in the air.

Know now crooks and how kids think, I knew they would cover their face until they took out the camera's, though spraying paint or using a base ball bat.

So I used hidden decoy device to hide my secondary camera's. A smoke detector with a built in camera. An exit sign with a built in camera. A door handle to a panel of hallway cabinets with power meters had a camera. And finally in the laundry room, a fire sprinkler head had a hidden camera.

So when the kids of some tenants wanted the quarter out of the laundry machines, they destroyed the known camera's and I got them on video breaking the washer and dryer's. I went to their parents and gave them 1 day to come up with $2,000 for new machines and $500 for replacement cameras. Their kids said they didn't do it. I then gave the footage to my attorney who got the police to pick the kids up from school and have the parents notified. The parents spent $10,000 to bail them out and hair a defense attorney, as I filed for eviction. These kids were really problematic.

I then won the eviction, converted it to a money judgement after they were out and garnished their wages. They had been paying a low rent and now their new apartments were almost double the cost.

The parents learned their kids were trouble, liars and now cost them ten of thousands of dollars. --47.156.xx.xx

It depends what you looking for, quality, cheap price, DIY,... Comcast has a monitoring services, you need to purchase the camera and they will provide you the screen and they are interconnected to the police.

Wyze is a good-cheap product that you can DIY.

Ring is good not that cheap too. --98.216.xx.xxx

Best camera set up is a system that uses wifi where can moniter from anytime from computer or cell phone. Ethernet cameras with high resolution then connected to recording device with good hard drive then can see what happened a month before. --68.69.xxx.xxx

I have upgraded my nvr & cameras to Hikvison with AI and night vision. They give great color video at night in low light and the AI can be set for movement of humans or cars saving searching hours of video. --47.205.xxx.xx

Kevin was it worth the upgrade? Expensive? Asking because I need at least 5 cameras in the exterior (I have Ring Floodlights cam and some Wyze) --98.216.xx.xxx

I think the video at night is fantastic, instead of ghost black & white you can see what color clothes someone is wearing 50-100 away at midnight. I think the cost for the Color view 4mp with AI was about $250. You could try one out on your system and see if you like it. I got tired of having an event and not being able to see a good description of the person. --47.205.xxx.xx

Costco has a 4 camera exterior Blink system on sale for about $189 until Christmas, with a 5th indoor camera. You can buy 2 systems affordably to get the number of cameras you need. I haven't used them so cannot comment on the quality. --154.21.xx.xxx

I just had a break-in at 3:40am Friday with video given to the police. I am using DS-2cd2347G2-LU 4mp 2.8mm and DS-2cd2387G2-LU 8mp 2.8mm for outside. Remember cheep systems may be good for inside but when you need a picture esp outside they are worthless and we are changing out many systems after people find out something happened and the system is no help. --47.205.xxx.xx

I had thieves destroy the exterior Blink cameras I installed and spray painted the cam in the laundry room. Local company advertised a $1599 Hikvision starter camera system - just got the quote from the sales rep who inspected the apartments without extras: $6500 for 5 cameras without extras. Extras being vandalproof metal box, UPS and smart cams etc Smart cams @ $800 --174.65.x.xxx

Shop around, ($6500 for 5 cameras without extras.) sounds like you are making his house payment. As Robert said they have several hidden cameras types to choose, be sure to leave a fake one to show off. --47.205.xxx.xx

Don't use Hikvision cameras. If you do, anyone in the world can view your feed. ht tps:// ipvm. com/reports/hik-hack-map

Kevin thanks again, i am looking at them in Amazon.

I just bought Simplisafe outdoor and indoor cameras with 25 foot cords for the outsides since they run on batteries. Got it at 60 percent off plus free camera so investment is about $500 for 6 cameras and a few accessories. Spectrum will install wifi tomorrow and the monthly cost is 24.99 because our address qualified for the government's $30 monthly credit. Been thinking about this for at least five years and after multiple washer dryer vandalisms, a $250 ladder stolen, one unit attempted breakin and multiple packages stolen not to mention overages on the dumpster due to nonresident dumps I figure this will pay for itself plus give me peace of mind. We have Simplisafe at home so very comfortable with the system. --96.35.x.xx

WiFi cameras: It can be dead easy to defeat your WiFi. Some of my cameras use WiFi; others not. My smartphone uses a WiFi internet link. Sometimes I see the cameras go down and it's the WiFi. The hard drive still has the footage when I get back, but no WiFi. Not sure how it is being defeated, but it definitely is.

Am now checking out the Deep Sentinel camera system - uses smart cameras to alert security guards to respond to breakins by loudspeaker. Advantage is that you immediately have eyes on suspicious situations and a live person to call cops. Not cheap - $100 per month for first camera and $50 for each additional camera monitored by security. For high crime areas like California where thievery up to $1000 is mostly legal, this may be the future. --201.140.xxx.xx

Just installed a Wyze Floodlight Camera I picked up at HD - simple to install and amazed at how clear the videos are. Get notifications texted to me to watch the motion detected movement. Now you can spend your evenings watching the neighborhood wildlife trespassing on your property at night! By 2 or 3 in the morning, I will have videos of the neighborhood tweekers! --201.140.xxx.xx

I did a DIY with Blue Iris (on an old dedicated computer) with POE cameras.

Had to learn a bit to get it together, but happy with the end result. --174.216.xx.xxx
