Need recommendation for surveillance DVR system

Need -a- Clue
Last Modified: 2015-03-27
I am looking for a DVR surveillance unit that will accomplish the following:
1. Be able to accept both video and wifi cameras.
2. Be capable of recording Hi Def
3. Be accessible from any computer on my network
4. Be accessible from any computer anywhere with an internet connection.
5 Be accessible from my Android HTC ONE M8 cell.
6. Optional, but desired: Be able to use ISPY software and their site with this system.
7. Be able to accommodate different brands of cameras.h

I had been trying to use a desktop to accomplish the above but it is too complicated. A DVR that has these features will hopefully save the day. I see that dvr units are plentiful between $100. and $500. I am hoping that an Expert here can give personal recommendations.
