Hi all!
I am trying to diy a cheap surveillance system for my home.
I leave in the front of a 2 family house. We have the back wall in common and 3 wall free with a garden all around
I am planning to install 5 IP camera outside and one inside as I show you in the photo below.
The camera on the terrace on the first floor is fosr someone who try to enter through the roof of mu neighboard( not surveilled )






Can you tell me:
1) do you thing a video surveillance system would be a good deterrent for bad guys?
2) do you think my project is doable
3) Do you think I can make it with vga resolution or I'll need HD camera if I'would like to have face recognition?


The cameras I was thinking about are these. I know little china - toy camera but i am short on budget for now :-)
