They are a little more inflated as they are close to Edgar's road and are opposite parks. Not all new land will be that expensive.

Yes not too bad. Just googled what I wanted to do and found a couple of different hikvision tutorials which talk you through step by step.

I have finished my camera setup today. Hikvision is great so far. Can view all cameras from my phone when I'm out and about also.

Yes, 150sq is about right. It will be a little more expensive as you are stamping it as well.
We went with Exposed Aggregate. 130sqm for $13,500.
