Rated 2 out of 5 by from Reasonable performance for what I paid Having had several disturbances and my shed broken into, had to get some kind of CCTV out there to help keep some form of deterrence. This kit comes with 4 cameras that are water proof against the rain, but the infrared does attracted the spiders and I have to keep wiping clean the cameras due to cobwebs. Performance wise the frame rates are rubbish, and you'd be lucky to actually identify anyone from their face. It struggles to read number plates on moving cars, even slow reversing cars and during the night you'd be lucky to use the footage for any investigation purpose. Here's what I found to be the case, hoodies no chance, running no chance, hit and run on your parked vehicle (if its within the cameras ideal proximity then YES). I've been playing with all the settings and have come to the results that this kit is only as good as what I paid for it. If you want state of the art be prepared to pay a four figure some instead, otherwise this kit is going to have to suffice. Buy a dog instead if you seriously thinking about this kit as an all and everything you need kit, it's not going to happen. Whats my verdict on this CCTV kit? It's definitely worth the asking price on the shelf, don't have extremely high expectations from this product because this isn't worth more then what you paid!

Yes, the cable can be extended however it would depend on the cameras in question on whether or not they can be added and unfortunately the cameras do not come in black.
