Security camera system Help Anyone know about these??

I need to find a security camera system with at least 4 cameras. Night vision and can handle rain.  

My issue is I want to put 2 cameras in the garage, one in the house, and one outside the house. the garage is a good 50 feet from the house. I assume they have to be wireless then right? Or can they simply plug into the wall? Im confused about all this! 

Would i need to have them all conected to the TV/Box? There is no way to hook them all to the same box and have them where I need them. 

Can anyone give me an idea on what to look for? Im not rich by any means so looking for about $200 or under. is this possible?

Sorry i wrote that up wrong My question is more what do i look for in a camera? If im looking to put them in 3 Seperate locations pretty far away is that possible? or would they all need to be wireless? All the ones i see have 4 cameras but only 1 Box for them all. i assume they all 4 have to hook to the 1 box right? So that would not be what im looking for? thats what im confused about.

Oh ok,in that case wireless is best but that might be expensive. We only had one and it was hooked up to the VCR recording. But your best bet is ebay and you can ask the seller questions.

for that budget try eBay or Craig's. list. but I would save up more money. like at list 600-1000$ for a good one if the security check its that important. you pay what you get.

You're not going to find that for under 200.

At least none that I'm aware of

Also avoid wireless, its easy to disrupt the signal
