I can add up to 8 total cameras and amazingly Harbor freight has extra cameras that will work for only $30.
Oh wow i forgot the mention that last week the cameras caught a guy breaking into a car!
people laughed at me 10 years ago when I bought cheap harbor freight black and white night vision cameras for my house.. 4 of those and 4 expensive super HAD sony stuff.... all of them outdoors.. the chapie harbor freighters are still going strong... after rain / snow / sun/ wind ,etc every time i pull up the screen there they are... the sonys? well theyve been gone for awhile now... decidedly they ad better picture they just didnt hold up
for IP cameras I have some FOSCAMs that have changeable lenses so you can change the field of view of the camera.. those have been solid for 3 years now outdoors no issues.. the ones I have I think are even powered via 802.3af which is a plus
