    Hey Guys,
    Hoping you can help me decide which camera to purchase. The exterior of my house already has several Hikvision DS-CD2332-I with 2.8mm lenses which cover 95% of the area around the house. The one spot that doesn't have full coverage is the driveway when we have an SUV, Truck or other tall vehicle parked there. I would like to put an additional camera above the garage (14 feet above the driveway surface) which would look directly down on the driveway to get full coverage. The driveway is 17 ft wide by 28 feet long. I'm happy with the DS-CD2332-I's that I have but that's a pretty large footprint on the wall above my garage is it will be mounted horizontally on the front of the house (Aesthetically, might upset my other half). The smaller footprint is what drew me to the Bullet DS-2CD2232-I5. Unfortunately, the widest lens it ships with is 4mm. Will the bullet cam with the 4mm lens cover my entire driveway or should I bite the bullet and put up a turret cam with the wider 2.8mm lens?

    No RV's, just full size pickup trucks and Sport Utility Vehicles. Nothing even close to the height that the camera would be mounted at (14 feet above ground).
