Can anyone help me with information please? I am looking to set up a surveillance system with 2-4 cameras to monitor outdoors at night. Ideally it would be motion detected and record to a dedicated pc. Only problem is I am not sure where to start looking for what I need as far as equipment and software. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Yes , you can buy such stuff from amazon ,etc .

Thanks for the help and suggestions. I found and purchased a 4 camera system from EZWATCH.(http://www.ezwatch-security-cameras.com/)

Very easy to install, excellent lifetime support and the features of the software were above and beyond what I needed.

Thanks again
