Purchased from Harbor Freight, 4 Channel Surveillance DVR with 4 Cameras and Mobile Monitoring Capabilities
Bunker Hill Security camera. Connecting it to my Dell laptop, Windows 8, 64bit, 6GB, wireless connection.
I bought me a CAT6 cable for connection and preloaded the software from security system. I have the cameras laid out and ready to connect them to DVR for testing. I have not connected anything to my laptop.
