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.

Is your estate through Opticomm Cav? If so you will get cable Foxtel, digital TV and Fibre Internet when they connect your home.

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.

What size area and what type? Are you going for Exposed Ag?
