I would just buy a combo set online that comes with a DVR/storage device (don't remember much about it).. 


I wouldn't go wireless unless it's necessary.. I use wireless ones on my house and it becomes a problem once in a while. Just wire it and know that it works without a problem. 


I wouldn't use ones that hook up to your PC, I find it easier to just keep it separate and let the system run 24/7.


If quality of the recording isn't super important, it won't cost that much on Amazon.. The one I got from Amazon (USA) worked with an app so I could look at the cameras anytime.. Worked good enough.. They can get pretty pricey so just get the basic features you need. You don't need 4k or 1440p unless you got money to blow or assets that are super important.. 1080p is more than good enough.. I wouldn't really go lower, myself.. 


Like usual, read the reviews.. If you get a combo set, everything should "just work." 


Good luck!
