|Ukraine Train||I picked up this system from Costco and I'd like to know what's required to add audio to it. It just has RCA connectors for audio in. Can I use any microphone or are there specific ones made for security systems? The manual just says "any line level microphone" can be used.|

Costco has this 4-channel NVR system with outdoor IP bullet cameras and network video recorder DVR for $699. That's not exactly a slick price, but then I haven't seen any especially low prices on NVR/IP cam surveillance systems yet.
On the plus side, this post in a security cam forum describes why the cameras are so good which is why I bookmarked the product page in case of a future price drop.
BJs has the version with an 8 channel NVR (but just 4 cams included) on sale right now for $999 (was $1299 last week).
SD's link doesn't seem to work so you can copy/paste this until they fix it (remove the spaces):

I'm sure prices will drop on this technology, but if you need it now and you've got that kind of money to spend then I'm sure these are very nice systems.

I use Zoneminder with my IP cameras and analog cameras, as it supports both. I have 4 IP cameras and 3 analog cameras. It is not the easiest to set up and you have to have a computer dedicated to run it, which is on Linux. Check it out here, http://www.zoneminder.

I like the 600TVL security cameras better than the 640x480 IP cams. IP cams over wireless network also rarely gets much over 15 frames per second max.

Wireless IP cams are nice, but they don't compare to having a DVR IMO. I have both and wireless IP cams are easy, but loose your network and you are hosed. Also need to have a computer on all the time if you want to record activity.
DVR all the way if you want good security, IP cams if you want to play around.

I am right now pursuing actively. I got quote for 8 Camera DVR system installed 1500$s. This is all analog and I have not found any installed interested in providing IP Camera, they all say very expensive.
I think if someone can kind of recommend in summary a good way to get installation (I am in Houston, 2 story home). How much is normal installation per camera, are people able to install. I cannot make out how the guy will route the wires (I am jittery because I do lot of work via CL and have mixed results). Is there any slam dunk install company which can do the job without i have to worry. I want for home, dome cameras, motion detection, night/day vision and to some extent zoom if possible. I need future upgrade or if I want to move IP can I use the wiring.
