Just wanted to know how much does it cost to install a cctv system for a double story house thats already been built?
Is it cheaper to get it done at the stage of building ( With the builder it self) or separately after you move in to the house?
Thanks in advance.

I can't help you on price but it will always be cheaper, have a nicer finish and overall have more options when allowances are made during building stage. You don't even need to have the gear installed during the build, just the infrastructure there for when you're ready to go.
If done post build, it'll be likely be a significant amount of visible conduit installed as part of the install

4 IP 4K Cameras with 8 channel recorder and all wiring and installation is around 3.5K. All provisions were made during build. Originally we thought just provision for it but with so many break-ins we are getting the video system asap. hope it helps.

During the build, I provisioned for CAT6 network cable to be run to all camera points. This cable feeds data from the camera and supplies power to it, but you need a Power Over Ethernet (PoE) switch/router.
