    Go with IP cameras and in particular Hikvison/Dahua. Hikvision is my preference as they are so easy to find and purchase. I purchase my whole kit from England being from NI. Don't get bullet cameras. Get turrets with EXIR. You won't have to clean the cobwebs all the time.

    Also, if you are gonna use 8 cams, get a 16 cam NVR. What you don't know is an 8-cam NVR might have an incoming bandwidth of 80mbps so if you got a few 4MP cams, a few higher MP cams then you run out of bandwidth and not be able to run all 8 cams. Also, you have room for expansion.

    Make sure you get the 4K model of the NVR. Watching the cams on a 4K to is really nice.

    Forget wireless camera's. Better to connect the camera to a specialise wireless unit.
