I installed my own, but this is my third system. First one was 480p, second was 720p (still have the cameras) and the third and current install consists of 3MP cameras. I think it's fun learning something new, and can now help my friends if they ever need a security system.

Installing the drops is the most difficult and aggravating part of the install. Once the drops are in, the rest is just about mounting the cameras and setting them up to monitor correctly.

A friend of mine just bought a house, and he's hiring someone to pull cable for eight cameras. He'll do the rest himself. Looking at the quote he receive, they charged him between $125 and $175 per drop. This obviously depends how difficult the drop is.
