Not necessarily a new topic around here but i was hoping to get the latest/greatest advice: We’ve had a couple break ins in some of our units, which has me seriously thinking of installing security cameras. I’ve seen the previous discussions regarding the issue, but noticed the following questions posted were never answered. I wanted to see if the group could take a shot at them this time around.
Basically i’m looking for a weather proof, wireless set up the can be accessed via my iPhone and can be bought and installed at a relatively affordable cost. Another issue i expect to run into is the wifi signal is not necessarily strong at the park.
Here are the questions from the previous poster:
Okay, finally started shopping for security cameras and have a few questions for you owners who have installed them in your parks. So, here goes …
How far can the (reasonably priced) wireless type of cameras realistically have clarity?
What is the best power source for the wireless units? Anyone use solar?
Which models, manufacturer’s systems do you use? This thread mentions Swann, Arystone. Others?
How to deal with cold, rain, wind for the cameras mounted outside?
How is the best way to configure the operation?
Can the video feed(s) be routed to the “cloud” for safety?
Does the server need to be onsite in a secure location?
My budget is around $1,000 for the entire system (i.e., cameras, server, etc.) and I would like to put up a minimum of 10 cameras.
