I am setting up a surveillance system for a building. I have already purchased a set of 4 outdoor cameras that connect bnc to a capture card. I would like to use wireless g network cameras along with them. Does anyone know what kind of software I should look into purchasing in order to do this? I would like to have just one piece of software instead of two if possible. Do they make cameras that have rj45, wireless g and bnc/rca? The reason why I am going with network cameras is because they have pan/tilt cameras for reasonable prices as compared to regular ones. Any feedback and/or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

A lot of the higher end software companies support capture boards. I beleive that Milestone does and I know that View Commader supports GeoVision. The people at Veiw Commander will probably work with you if your board is not support as long as it is not a knock off.

Most manufacturers now offer hybrid NVR's capable of taking IP and traditional cameras or if you wanted to investigate something like milestone or Axis camera station, you could swap out the capture card for a dedicated IP Video Server fooling the system into believing the analogue cameras were also IP...
