That's exactly what I've done. The recordings are stored on a NAS....actually more than one.... By the time they find the DVR or attempts to deface/destroy the cameras, they've already screwed the several cameras....and the footage is not accessible locally....most in these parts wouldn't have a clue, they'd take out the cameras and think they're home free.

FWIW, this system in full operation pulls 24W off the grid!
