Best thing is to read up what kind of cameras there are available.
There are several types (daylight, night vision, colour OK or not, sharpness), so find out and then decide which type you think is the best for the price.
Next, the recorder. What do the reviews say.
Record 24/7 or only when motion activated ?
Does the *system* allow you to monitor via your smart phone ?

We went with the ZMODO system. It was a bear to set up but surprisingly very good customer help !!
I have the master monitor in our *office*(one monitor in the kitchen area) so I can see the whole yard. One unit at the door that has sound so I can talk to whomever is in front of the door ...

Correction.

The door unit is actually NOT part of the ZMODO system.
It has its own small teeny monitor which sits in front of me when I am at my desk ...

It is a couple of years old.
There are many solutions now which interface with a smart phone so you can see and talk to who is at your door via your phone ?
