I would strongly advise against wireless. Installing wired cameras is possible most Fof the time.

Hard-wired is the only way forward. Stay away wireless CCTV. more hassle in the long run.

Wired systems are hand down more reliable than wireless and are stand alone systems where as wireless can be signal jammed or have loss if internet becomes disrupted. Stick with wired all the way !

I would always suggest a wired system over wireless and use smart night vision cameras, with 50m night vision.
I would also recommend a site visit to provide the best solution.

Always go cabled as system is a lot more reliable and better picture quality on live view and playback

As everyone mentioned, use Wired system instead of Wireless, as you need to power on all 16 cameras anyway. Electrical install for all of them will be way expensive than you run 16 x Cat5 POE or you can do HD-TVI's with POC, you may connect them to UPS as well and it'll be redundant to any power cut... and then it will be the matter to choose of a picture quality and frames per second. As the advise for which one to choose, depending is how deep is your pocket and what You expecting to view through. Try Hikvision, as it will be easy to get help, and it's cheaper than Dahua.
