    Hi, I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to post this.
    I run a shop that has a very outdated camera setup.
    I would like to improve it but have no clue who offers a good set up though.
    I'd like to add floodlights and upgrade the cameras.

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you,
    Sean

    I use a open source linux application called Zoneminder.
    https://zoneminder.com/

    It is not without some difficulty, there is a steep curve figuring it out. Once I get a zoneminder server going it is a smooth setup IMO. It is not plug and play but it will work with many different cameras.
    I like motion floodights teamed up with motion sensing cameras. The light goes on, the cameras record, it works well.
