Ok this the situation I'm in. I have alot of automotive stuff in the garage worth a ton of money, I also have collector cars in the garage , as well as the driveway.

One location for a camera is dead center front side of the property about 20ft high (100ft wide) , and another is directly on the front of the garage about 12-14 ft high. I'd like two camera's. My house is networked for cat6, both garage and house. I can also run more cat cable or coax. Garage is detached. All my outside lights are motion sensored. Front yard lights up half way decent when something enters the property.

My budget is 400, 500 pushing it. What camera's would you guys suggest? I've been looking around for awhile, I just can't see spending 250+ on a camera with very little in reviews.

Also I have multiple computers, I can donate one as a server if need to be. Sorry if this is half ass typed up, its 3am and im tired.

Thanks to anyone that can help

If it's worth a lot, a pair of cameras won't stop anyone. A guard dog might be a better plan. Through in a few "You are under surveillance" signs, door alarms, etc. Better and more reliable than a couple of (relatively) cheap cameras.

With that budget your options are limited, but you still should be able to get something decent working.

For your application we'd recommend a bullet camera : The outdoor housing is included and is typically a better value than a box or dome camera that need outdoor housings. The only issue here will be making sure the FOV from the lens included will work for you. Again, at this budget you may not have many options.

Vivotek will probably be your best bet, especially because their cameras come with free recording software that you could install on one of your computers.
