Just make sure the pic quality is good.

I hear complaints that quality is often grainy

Before buying, watch a real file clip of that cam

I have a couple of this at home. The power wire is only about 1 meter. Narrow FOV. I DIY extended the wire and installed it to the ceiling. Made a mistake of not buying a recordable camera in the 1st place. Out of 3 cameras 1 kept going offline and went dead after 6 months. I bought a recordable set to replace it. It kept going offline after about a week use too. If given a choice I will have a CCTV installed.

Thank you Donut 88, noted and I think the quality not that bad
Thank you airfins, ...But CCTV more complicated and ex. right? If it's IP cam, which means I should buy one with 'recorded' feature?

So far my Dlink is working fine with 3G connection to my iPhone. Depend on your needs wether recordings is needed, I would say jump straight to recording as anything happen you need recorded prove. CCTV is at the range of about 2 camera at $699, more ex but more reliable. Careful with hidden cost as running of cable might cost more if need to go they walls. If I shift house I will get a CCTV installed. My Dlink in the living room is always on infra red night mode (black n white) as the lighting alone is not bright enough for it to auto select the day mode.
