We have looked into a system for the new build. Being a half mile of the Road, I am sure some Yahoo will think the house is easy pickings...I have had some things come up missing before.
I have not done a lot of comparative pricing, but from what little I have done showed me that Costco was pretty good on price and selection.
They carry a few brands: Swann, Lorex, Q-See.
One good thing about Costco is they are local and take anything back without a hassle...then again, once it's wired, probably not going to pull out the cable...lol.
I have not found anything about how far we can go with a cable underground without losing system quality...the idea is to have 1 or 2 cameras pointed up the gravel road to the house. In the pic below that is about 2/10ths of a mile before the bend that goes to the Road...the pic is My Gravel Road (get it) lol..after that bend there is another 2/10ths that is a straight shot to the Road and people turn around there all the time and apparently need to drive on the grass even though the Gravel Road is about 25 feet wide...going to move a few logs that are about 30 inch dia. and 10 ft long up there this week to help guide folks 'in'...Back to my original point, we want to be able to see who was driving up to the house and barn and what they were doing, the property is fenced and treed and posted around the entire front perimeter...so if they are coming down our road they are either my friend or someone up to no good...don't tell me you were "looking for Joe Blow" or you thought this was so-and-so's place...I was born at night, but not last night. (Pic was taken today, nice and sunny here)

From the house to where I could mount a camera...total length from control room to pole/tree would be about 150 ft. Not a bit deal to do a shallow burial for it. I am not up on the details yet...If it's a coaxial cable or what...I have a 900 ft spool of coax that I would love to use...

A guy I used to know...moved away...real electronics whiz...he had a outdoor camera with Tilt/Pan/Zoom and he rigged up a dot laser to it that he could toggle on and off...could raise the hair on the back of your head the first time he messed with you...I told him he needed to set up the laser to a motion detector that would track a target's infrared profile...might be a good deterrent.
