Hello everyone. I am considering purchasing the Panasonic WV-SC385. I plan on mounting it outside, in an outdoor dome. It will be on the other side of the house from my 2wire 3801HGV router. Instead of running cat5 cable clear across the house, my idea was using a wireless access point with poe injection fairly close to the camera.
Will this work? If so, could you suggest a wireless access point/equipment for doing this?
Thanks.

Ubiquiti and Engenius are the two low end players for outdoor commercial grade access points for under $100. Check their website for models and specs.

Since your 2Wire only has 802.11b/g, you can get a Ubitquiti Nanostation Loco Access Point for $49 list. If you upgrade your router to one that does 802.11n then you may want the higher end Nanostation for $89 list. While they have 10-20km range, that's with complete line of site. Just having a few walls in between may lower that 10km range to 10m. Also, just because you can get a connection doesn't mean you have a good one and an internmittent or very weak connection can be worse than no connection at all.

An alternative to WiFi would be Powerline, seems to have made a comeback in recent years.

As for injectors, you can find them all over the internet. Make sure it's capable of working the PTZ cameras as they usually have higher power requirements.

Hello again. Can anyone suggest an outdoor dome for the Panasonic wv-sc385? I live in extreme South Florida so a heater isn't needed. I looked at the Panasonic posm5v but I was hoping to find one without the heater and save the $$$$. I just need to keep the moisture out.
