    Was intending to use Milestone as the only limits of 8 cameras and 5 days recording seems ok for me to start off with

    But just read they removed email alerts in 2014 which is a must 4 me to see my burglars !

    Anyone have an old copy I can borrow ? :D

    just walked away from Milestone xProtect Go (free) after 2 years. They changed their free version, removing the e-mail alerts. And they did so without any notice. Not even in the release notes.

    Just get your cameras to send the e-mail alerts instead. That way you will at least have some pictures independently of your NVR in case it gets found and stolen in a burglary.

    May depend on the camera brand, not sure. If you are using Hiks why not just use the Line Crossing, and/or Intrusion Detection for the e-mails from the cameras? The night only bit would be simple and fairly accurate then. Maybe line crossing when the perp is at a distance, and intrusion when they are closer to your door/window.
    BTW, don't you find the large logo on the video a bit of a deal breaker on Go? That's why I went for Essential.

    You can now download Essentials 2016 for free now with support of up to 8 cameras for unlimited time. Much better than XProtect Go.

    Note it still requires yearly registration or it stops working
