    Thanks again Mark.

    I was looking at the 2042 as it's only 96 on Amazon at the moment, whereas the 2342 is 122. A cheap PoE injector is another 15. If the image quality is pretty much the same I will stick with the 2042.

    Regards,

    Les

    I love Hikvision IP cameras and have been installing them for 15 years.

    I agree with the previous poster - HikVision, easy to set up and a good user interface.

    I bought a HD-SDI CCTV system back in 2016 having done a fair bit of research. All in about 1200 as it was also the most expensive format at the time, but used ones now available cheaply as little did I know it was a dying format that's now obsolete, so I don't recommend buying a new system at all, but well worth it if you can find a cheap used one that comes with a Vectus (Linux) DVR.

    These systems are generally used by commercial entities like McDonalds and such like, and reliability has been superb with just 1 camera failure (it was in direct morning sunlight) in 6 years of continuous operation. Runs on a 3TB Seagate drive and that gives about 8 days of footage before re-writing.

    Still some tweaking to do for the picture settings but here's a clip immediately after installation. Picture quality is MUCH better than the video implies as this is just a screen recording off my phone, which then got pixelated even more when I uploaded to YT.

    Night vision is pretty good also particularly on cameras with a Sony Starvis chip (not this one) as you get full colour from around 03:30 to 23:30 through summer, and 07:00 to 19:00 in winter, longer if you have outside lighting.

    What I particularly like about these older systems is no reliance on an internet connection that can be easily cut, hard drive can be hidden anywhere, there are free apps available to view the footage, and the DVRs automatically set up a DDNS for you, you just choose any web address to enter into the DVR then the same address on whatever app you use to view footage.
