Home security

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am looking into starting some home security. I was thinking one of those $200-$300 camera and DVR setups from Amazon, and adding an old server rack. What I want to do is have the server rack for more then just the security setup. I want to set up a streaming service to access all of my files on my home PC's from my phone, or any other device. I want to also access the video footage anytime any where. I am sure I can do this with a very cheap old PC setup, but I also speed and reliability, and expansion that a second hand server rack would supply. Plus I want to get more into networking, and look forward to learning more about it. I know there are setups out there already completed, but that would take away from the challenge of putting the whole thing together. 


So where would be a good place to start?


All in all I am estimating in just hardware around $500-$700. (2 smaller drives to start)
