I need to propose a 5-6 camera for remote surveillance of a weekend home. 1 camera for the front gate, 4-5 cameras around the house. Monitoring will be on a PC or iDevice. The customer wants to mount the cameras on the trees surrounding the house and wants them as descreet as possible(except the front gate). The trees are massive, 5-6 feet base of trunk in diameter. I am thinking of proposing a Synology NAS since the customer also has two separate hi-end home theaters, but no local storage for the DLNA devices(Samsung Smart TVs, Pioneer network capable receiver, Oppo BDP-93, etc.) This way I can kill two birds with one stone, give him a surveillance solution and a full featured audio/video media server. The equipment I am proposing is as follows:
separate IR iluminator for the gate area if he wants PTZ
I am also thinking of hiding the cameras in small bird house enclosures or make a small wood box and paint it the same color as the trees in order to have the cameras blend in better. I can also put some thermal insulation inside to provide more protection against the elements(about 50 miles north of New York, pretty cold winters).
Conduit will be provided by the contractor.
What do you guys think? What are the potential problems? Any other cameras that I should be looking in this price range(have to be compatible with the synology NAS),1080p
Thanks in advance
