anyone know any idea on how to setup a surveillance system for business.

i want to hook up at least 6 camera to a desktop/laptop with a huge harddrive to record 24hrs daily.

i did search but all i see is camera to dvr system not to computer.

You will likely have to addd the correct card to your computer but that's about it. Depending on circumstances sometimes it's easier and cheaper to buy a stand alone system. Check this site out, they have been helpful in the past. There is alot of free & useful info. there.
Good Luck

Im scanning through for help on connecting my dvr system to my network. I think you should look for a network capable dvr, unless you can figure out how to hook up 6 cameras to your pc. I hooked up a 4 camera dvr to my network, and installed the software on my pc. Now I can't get my router to allow the connection.
But back to your question, I think a decent dvr would be more helpful. Check out super circuits or ICRealtime.

check out PELCO dvr's. we've got three of them at work. they come with the software to enable viewing on LAN and over the internet. they're not cheap - 4ch w/cd-r drive,usb drive and 250 gig HD was $1200.00. EDIT - link:http://www.pelco.com/Products/default.aspx?id=510

as far as the setup you have now, check your virus software/firewall settings to allow the program and the IP ADD for the dvr.

For IP cameras, you want to use an NVR or Network Video Recorder. Intellex and Pelco are good brands.

You could also get a hybrid DVR/NVR for more flexibility but also more money.

Also, just so you know, you can use twisted pair to tie an IP camera into a DVR if you like.

i was trying to gather information to set up a camera system to a computer so i can utilize the hard drive which i thought was a cheaper route, i wasn't planning on doing remote view since i don't have internet connection, it just a small convenience store.

so i guess the most convenient and most bang is to go with a stand alone dvr system.
now i don't know which one,

i need a min. of 4 camera or max of 6 with a big hard drive, 2 outside camera and 2 inside, prefer the system to be under $800. possible find? screen also?

thanks for the reply
