They have many brands and price ranges.

For example, industry standard price for the installation of 1 cable drop is about $300. 5x$300 plus camera installation can easily come out to be $2000 or so. Did the installer provide an itemized quote or did he just tell one price? Ask for itemized quote and make sure the installer is licensed and certified.
Also I would go with known equipment brands such as sony, panasonic, asix, etc... You might pay premium upfront but it will be more reliable and it will last longer. Good luck.
