I will give you some of the basics and tell you what to look for, and this make take a while so go get you a cup of coffee and then come back and finish reading this.

There are multiple components that make up a CCTV system and any one of them can make a significant difference in the quality of the video that you will be watching. As a rule, you get what you pay for. A good place to start is to decide how much money you're willing to spend and then we can start matching components to fit your budget. It would be money wasted to buy a top of the line camera and then use lesser grade components for the rest of the system.
