Home security camera system suggestions?

I haven't got a clue where to start looking for whats good or not and I know ppl on here have systems after seeing some videos posted. My dad would like to get a setup at his house after some car breakins on his block in the NW suburbs and general unease. I think something simple (1-2 cameras) that takes video would make him feel better.
What brands/systems are good? He can install and we can setup PC. He was thinking something that will mount in front above the driveway/garage light that is motion activated, maybe 1 in back (also lit). I figure anything recorded can be saved on a computer, preferably also motion activated to save space/time. Night vision a plus but maybe not necessary with the lights, good quality video, audio not necessary. Ive seen them for sale just about everywhere (best buy, walmart, home depot) are any of those worth it?
someone also recommended a deer camera, any pro/con opinions on that? is a video system superior for catching thieves in the act? should he just get a dummy camera and save his money?

Get one with a stand alone recorder. Audio would be best to include incase the crooks start calling out each others name. The walmarts up here have a couple setups like this. Biggest name they have is Samsung for Just under $400 with 4 cameras and DVR.

Does your dads area have a neighborhood watch program?

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

no neighborhood watch, he even suspects it might be neighbors who did the car breakins.
the system i found that looks interesting is from logitech:

Dont ask that retard shit.

Everything I got was from gadspot.com with exception the the hard drive for the dvr. I got it at micro center for a lot less and more room on the drive

He is what my video looks like at night as of right now



Here is a action video


Here is a system of two cameras at business of a friend that lives down the street from me and is member on this board. I have photos from a 23 unit apartment building i did but was asked not to post them but they used the same equipment and haven't had complaints







Dont use computer pci boards for camera systems you lose frame rates big time in the video.

Get a dvr and a couple cameras on the site listed i went with the outdoor domes and havent had any issues with them. We will seem how they make it thru this winter then again they were about 50 bucks so replacing it isnt a problem if they crap out every few years.

If you have ambient light from street lights and what not these are good to go as you can see

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

You think cause you have my name I give a rats ass? not very hard to get just asking on board. Maybe Ill start using your initials since you seem to think its bothers me I don't have anything to hide unlike you apparently

I see you have a little military gear for sale. Did they finally kick you out for stupidity?

well you started this, I just want it to end...And the only way to end this is for you to know that I can strike back if needed.

your name is only the start, like you I'm gathering info...
I already have your full name and DOB, working on your address. I'm narrowing it down to K..... Ave.

Shall we end this?

as for the army, I'm in the IRR right now, did my 6 years and a tour. Considering going back. I almost did get kick out when my first sergeant caught me riding like a maniac coming from my lunch break. Video IS available, if anybody's interested.
