    Your best bet is to go to any installer and say you want a 2 cam installation with a hard drive that you can replay, either WiFi or hard wired.
    I would assume, correct me if I am wrong that you would not be comfortable with one using an online app.

    As Crash said best to get a local installer to fit system.

    I've a 4 camera system covering front, side and back.
    Records 24/7
    Accessed via Monitor/TV and on mobile phone.

    One off install fee, no monthly payments

    I had in mind something that would send an alert to my mobile phone whenever someone comes within range of camera. Iím guessing thatís easy once set up?

    I've had these for a couple of years. They send an instant notification to my phone and record a 10 second or so video. All on wifi so no wires. You can monitor them from anywhere. They have a two way microphone feature but that isn't great.

    The battery life isn't 180 days. More like 90/100 days. Can't fault them.

    The link is there just to provide a description. There's a range of cameras available with better resolution, solar units etc.

    No alerts on mine.

    Just able to view.

    Alerts probably on stuff like Verisure so you'd be looking at monthly fees

    Dont go down the verisure route. Complete rip off and 3 year contract. Plus some old codger might come out if alarm goes off.
    Oh no alarm on house that's handy then.
    And if you don't want to carry on with contract, they take all equipment back.
