Anyone Have Barn Cameras?

Does anyone on here have barn cameras? I'm trying to get a barn camera system but I have no clue what system to get. I actually got a camera and video capture device, but it doesn't work and I, in the meantime, decided it would be easier and maybe faster and better to get a whole system. So here are my requirements.
*1-4 cameras*
*Good Quality*
*Be able to hook up to a computer-any systems that come with a DVR?*
*Reasonable price*
I've looked around, but I can't find any systems-just the camera. I'm hoping there is some "kit" that comes with everything I need except the computer.
Thanks ahead of time!

Check out a sams club or costco if you have one near you(or online i guess). They have the whole package that works together ootb!

I have 8 "wireless"IP cams in my barn. They do have to be plugged into power outlets and can be plugged into Ethernet if you wanted. They were about $45 each. I went the IP route so that I can check them from anywhere I have Internet access which includes my cell phone. They are color and have a wide range of motion (which I can control from my phone)

The only thing I haven't figured out is how to record. I know there are some people that can, I just haven't put much effort into that with mine.

Thanks both of you.
So far I've only looked at Costco but I think this one will work. Lorex 8 Channel Full 960H Security System with 1TB HDD and 8 700TVL Cameras
Yeah 8 cameras instead of 4 but we could find use for all of them......
What do you think? I see it hooks up the a router..... Will it also hook up to an internet booster/extender?
