Does anyone know of a security camera that fulfils the following requirements (and isn't made by a dodgy sounding Chinese company...)

 

 

 

     

  1. Designed for outdoor mounting in all weather
  2. Would run off a 24v solar system
  3. Uses GSM to relay images to a phone/tablet/PC etc

 

 

 

Its for our entrance gate, which is 250m or so from the house and you can't see it.

You are aware that GSM is going away soon? There are plenty of cameras that would do the job but without a network to connect to are as good as useless.

 

Also 24/7 sending of images would blow thru any cap really quickly.

Obviously not a cameras job to connect to cellular network, use a suitable routing device.

Any sensible routing device that works outside, 250-300m from a house and internet connection?

By GSM I mean 3G or 4G

Why not just set up a Ubiquiti P2P link (something like a pair of Ubiquiti NanoStation Loco's will do fine) from your house to the gate to get network out there and get something like one of these? This way it is on your local network.

Well, the usual stuff I guess.

 

Apparently, I can't have remote AI controlled laser turrets, sadly.

Ubiquiti point-to-point to get the network link to the gate. And then for voltage sake, probably a Ubiquiti camera too - one of the older generation ones as I think all the new ones are 802.3af and not passive 24V PoE

Edit: IP camera on a cell network is just a whole lot harder. do a search for the many many threads of people attempting it

You could run a cable, so long as a goat doesn't eat it. At that distance wireless may be cheaper.

Ok you might get the prize for this.

Assuming it works off a 24v solar fed power system.

@michaelmurfy So, if I have one of those on the outside of the house running off mains, the other can be at the gate running off the solar 24v system there, correct? I cannot quite work that out from the specs, not being either an electrical or a network engineer. Does the house one have to also be outside, or would it work if it was inside?

 

Don't worry if you don't know - I was just wondering. I had no idea such things existed.
