Setting Up a DIY Home Security Camera System

The camera systems below include the wires needed to connect them to the Digital Video Recorder (DVR). Wireless cameras are available that require setup using a software program.

Our favorite wireless home monitoring camera system that has easy setup is the Blink system which can be seen on this page.

Storage Requirements

A 720p camera has ~80KB frame size. As more cameras record data, the amount of storage to save the video will need to increase. Be careful to size the storage to match the number of cameras.

For instance, 8 cameras capturing 1 frame per second (1 picture each second) will require about 400GB for 7 days of storage.

If the system includes motion detection the amount of storage will be less because the system is only capturing images when activity is detected.
