We purchased our building’s camera system from Costco. A four cam (with four more ports to grow with) that are hard wired into the system.  It is still connected to the recording device so it will record even if there is no internet connection.  However, the internet feature means that any of us that has a  smart device can check our cameras (or download the clip, etc) from anywhere.  We did experience about 6 months where it would not connect to the museum’s wifi system, but we knew it was still recording during that time as we could play each day back on the monitor.

at your service,

Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw the torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die we shall not sleep,
though poppies grow in Flanders Fields.

Our current system is a set of simple wi-fi-connected cameras, but we are looking for something more reliable that will not go down if our internet is offline. Affordability is quite important for us as a small organization.
