Question New to wireless technolog with a question

I run a small construction (security) surveillance company. What I am trying to accomplish is being able to view, over the internet or some other form of transmission, what my cameras are seeing. The problem is, most of my camera units are set up in areas where beginning stages of building are going on. I have the power but need the transmission part figured out. Can anyone at least point me in the right direction.

Thanks, Dan

Axis would be a nice place to start. You can get units that are cheaper, home user stuff, but the Axis cams are really nice.

As far as using WiFi cameras for security, yes it can be done, but it's not very secure since they are prone to interference. Not a super big deal, but if you were trying to use WiFi cams as a high-rise goes up (assuming there are other hi-rises nearby) it wouldn't be all that great because of the other wireless networks in the area.

Fixed, outdoor, WiFi Cam

Like I said, not cheap. Another option however, would to be to get a couple of wired cameras and hook them up to a video server that is then connected to a wireless connection back to the DSL or cable modem.

These configurations are neither cheap nor quick. However, if you do it right once, you won't need to do it again. When the building is built, you can pick up your stuff can go to the next one.

I have not used, but have seen on many occasions these self contained units by SiteSeer. Basically they have a number of cameras (fixed and PTZ), come batteries, a generator and/or solar panels. Pretty slick little units if you ask me.

I have no affiliation with any of the companies I mention. I am an independent contractor. I just tell you about the things I know.
