My mother is looking for a surveillance system for her office, and also wants to buy a server for file sharing/storage (shared folders/drives primarily). I am wondering if there is any surveillance system that includes a web server capable of handling the cameras and the file sharing.
This is for a small office only 2-4 computers sharing files. And the number of video cameras would be 8, and they need to be able to stream via the internet. The video cameras need to have good resolution. Most likely 4 video cameras outdoors, and 4 indoors.
If no such system exists, I am curious to know if having 8 cameras would require a very expensive server to keep them up with the file sharing at the same time.
