I wouldn't put details of whatever security system you pick on a public forum, just my advice. Just a couple of suggestions: If you can, set it up so that you have two DVRs recording the cameras, one on site and one via internet or even better wireless cellular transmitter off site. That way you have images even if the home DVR is found and destroyed. Second, also think a separate motion detection/glass breakage/door alarm system with a 24 hour monitoring switch board. Set it up that one system covers and protects the other. No professional will chance being detected AND having their picture taken. They know they only have a few minutes to get in and out, not enough time to find the DVR, pull the chip, and take much. You will be left with the dumb ones and the meth heads, and few of them are safe crackers. Robo's idea of WIFI repeaters is an excellent one, and try to have a motion activated camera set up that can catch the license plates of any cars coming or going, and don't scrimp on the quality of the equipment. I also have a bunch of game cams set up around my place as well that have come in useful. Think overlapping layers of protection. I hate surprises.
