    I was given a Stealth Video NVR-IP-64S4k DVR system from my IT friend at a former employer we worked for since they upgraded the system they have there. Its only 2 years old and supports 8 drives and at least 25 cameras from what I remember.

    I need suggestions for some good, relatively inexpensive IP based cameras that I could get for it. The cheapest I have found so far start at $150 each and I would need to get 10 of them to cover everything I want to.

    My best advice is to look for used cameras, I have seen decent IP cameras around craigslist for 50 or less

    Assuming you are going to install wired cameras, simply get yourself a proper edge firewall device, and make sure that neither the DVR device or cameras are allowed ANY access to or from the outside world. Most folks have crap for edge security.
