    Hi Guys,

    A local retailer is selling Alhua brand's cctv in our area. 10000/- per camera including installation charges. Night Vision is there but not that good. If we need wifi option to stream the same anywhere then the upper model costs around 15000/- What points to look for while purchasing one? Advisable to buy the same online? Night vision and wifi thing are needed.

    Thanks

    Not much idea about CCTV but the basics should be same.Check picture quality over both options(wifi as well as 3g/4g sim if available) & also check if it is possible to setup the upload of captured footage to some remote location(aka google drive etc) instead of a HDD at home(now seeing cases where burglars actually take the entire DVR with hdd in it).
    How It Works: DVR.Webcam: Google Drive Edition

    See & read comments on Amazon for CCTV models,it seems like many are just selling cheap rebranded chinese stuff.

    The reviews and price are tempting.

    Can't comment about quality but as far as setup is concerned,all IP cameras should follow same basic steps.Search on google & youtube,you should be able to find some good tutorials.
