    Does anyone have a recommendation for a security camera system for a smaller storage property?

    I change to Tapo about a year ago. Activity is saved to the cloud and I can see the cameras on my phone from anywhere. It is very flexible and the night vision is much better than what I had before.  You can either wire it or go wireless.  I have both.  Here's an Amazon link to the specific camera I'm using.

    Lorex cameras are easy to set up and have cloud access.

    Hello Dirk,

    It sounds like you all are not going through a company, which is great if you can avoid extra expenses...

    But here is the company we just used to upgrade all security and add more... Our system is not huge, but the upkeep and upgrading this company offers is very important to us who know very little about security camera systems. This contact may help you or someone else. Mike is more than willing to talk you through options!

    Have a great day!

    We really like the Hikvision IP cameras used along with the Blue Iris software.
