I've been wanting to setup a CCTV in my family small convenient shop. Since i've never setup one before, i would like some ideas, tips or advice from you guys who have experienced it or have ideas how to do so.
Here is what i've come up so far, I was thinking to get a IP camera, something like this one since the shop has Broadband with 3GB data caps. I have a desktop computer with 60GB of hard drive. I was thinking to connect the camera to PC and using pc's hard drive but to do so, i have to turn on my PC all day long 24/7 (worry it might blow my pc up and burn the shop at night lolz). Oh the camera is recorded when there's any movement though which is pretty cool. I know i need the software which i think i could just search around and download them.
Anyway if i use PC, how long can i record it with 60GB hard drive? Is there any other way without using PC? Does it consume alot of broadband data if i use IP camera? cos 3GB, i normally use up about 2GB and only 1GB left by the end of the month. By the way, i have wireless broadband though.
Please guys, help me!
