I have a customer that wants to show off his patio and what not on the web. He's wanting to setup 2 or 3 wireless cameras, feed them back to a PC then have that put up to his web site (which is hosted on a remote server). Is this possible? If so I'd love some details on how I could do it.

Hi Shane,

This is very possible. With IP Cameras you can bypass the PC and have the cameras connected directory to the Internet. They have a built-in webserver so they do not require a PC to run. Most manufacturers can provide a web page script that will allow you to place video feeds on your customers website as well.

So 2 cameras could go directly out his DSL and with a script have it post the video to a web site?

Thats awesome. What camera would you recommend looking at? He's wanting to get this setup soon.

Yup thats how it would work. You would need a router that connects to the DSL modem. The router would then spread the Internet connection to all devices connected to the router (including the cameras). You will need a router that supports Port Forwarding. Most routers do. Let me know when you need help settings this up because it seems hard at the start but its actually fairly easy.

As for recommendations....

Depends on what kind of camera and features you are looking for.

The top manufacturers are:

Axis - http://www.axis.com - good quality cameras but they are very expensive. They also do not include software for recording from the cameras - its extra.

D-Link - http://www.dlink.com - some cameras are good but watch out for the DCS-950 series. They also give you free recording software for up to 16 cameras.

4XEM - http://www.4xem.com - they provide software with their cameras and their cameras work good. I have a IPCAMWPTZ camera from 4XEM setup as a demo on this site. (if you want to access it you can go here, http://ncr.dynalias.com:800 username and password is demo)

Sony - http://b2b.sony.com/Solutions/subcategory/security/ip-surveillance-cameras - Good quality but also expensive (they have the Sony name so of course they are expensive Wink) They also do not include software

Toshiba - http://www.toshiba.com/taisisd/netcam/ - I haven't had a chance to fool around with their cameras yet. I don't think they include software.

Thank you so much for the great information.

Just trying to find a wireless solution that can go out doors. Many of the mounts for all weather cameras seem to just support wired solutions.

Thanks again

No problem Shane.

Most mounts do not support wireless cameras because the antennas do not fit inside the enclosures. You can get around this by buying external antennas that you can attach to the outside of the enclosure.

Visit the Premier Service Solutions web site at http://www.psssite.com . We have some Panasonc wireless cameras, and some enclosures that you might be interested in.

Which antenna would you recommend for the 4XEM camera and enclosure then for outdoor use. These cameras will be mounted on a fence near looking at the patio. Weather won't be huge problem, but enough that we don't want to mess with it or have problems in large rain.

I would probably recommend an enclosure with a heater and blower. This will keep the temp inside the enclosure suitable for an IP camera.

As for an antenna.......can I ask first, do you want a camera with pan/tilt/zoom? If you were thinking of getting a 4XEM camera with pan/tilt/zoom they offer an enclosure that works fine for wireless cameras. The antennas from the camera would fit inside the enclosure. Even a few of Premier Service Solutions enclosures would work fine.

Are you looking to get a PTZ camera or a fixed camera?

Cheers!

For the two PTZ cameras you should be OK with any dome enclosure. The antennas on the back are usually the same height as the camera so it should fit. Just make sure before you buy Wink

As for the fixed, you will have to get an external antenna to place on the outside of the enclosure.

What about distance from the cameras to the wireless access point / router?

I'd say they will be 30 - 50 feet. Maybe just a little further.

You should be fine wireless then. Just as long as there are no thick walls between the wireless router and wireless ip cameras.
