Here's what I think would be useful to cover:
- General issues, background
- Recommended cameras for indoor and outdoor, at a budget, midrange, and high end price point, and where to source them
- Power delivery (hard wired, PoE). If PoE then what camera, equipment, etc is needed?
- Network (wired, wireless)
- How you view the images/video, from a PC, phone, etc
- Can the cameras upload directly to say an ftp server
- Night vision cameras (IR?)
- Can they be disabled on a schedule so they're not constantly working while we're home? Could they be integrated with an alarm to turn the indoor cameras on and off? Is there any need/point?
I'd like to use them to deter burglars and monitor tradesmen when I'm at work.
Any pointers appreciated :)
