I am looking for suggestions on weather proofing the connection of an RJ59 Siamese cable to an HD-TVI camera that is mounted outdoors. Specifically, I am wanting to know how you would go about doing this and what hardware you would use. Reliability through changing seasons and weather is definitely a must (I have learned from experience, aww, camera video feeds keep going out). Do you have any recommendations on how to get the video feed of multiple HD-TVI cameras on one building over an air gap to the other building? The distance between the buildings is less than 300 feet and there is pavement that prevents us from doing underground cabling. In further extension of question #2, the building in particular is a workshop garage for vehicle repairs. The need is to install a wall rack with CCTV power supply and UPS battery backup. What is the best way to do this factoring in cold winters (below freezing) and hot summers (upwards of 38 Celsius / 100 Fahrenheit), particularly in protecting the equipment from overheating and the elements? In general, how do you recommend installing [bullet] cameras outdoors? In particular, do you install bullet cameras directly to a surface on the building, or do you install the bullet camera to some sort of weather proof junction box? What equipment do you use? I am hoping for some photos of examples and/or product links that I can order online. What is an ideal mounting height for outdoor cameras where a ladder is required to tamper with the camera but not so high that faces cannot be identified? If you are running a cable through a sheet metal wall, what do you use to prevent the drilled hole from cutting the cable and how do you weather seal the hole after running the cable through? What equipment do you use?
I'm new to the forum, so if isn't kosher let me know. I'm looking for a home surveillance system but can't find what I want. What companies offer security packages for the home. I don't want a monthly bill. I need it for outside only, and it gets cold in the winter. Totally wireless is a necessity. I'm too old to go crawling through the attic to string wires and cables. Plus, I need a camera in an area where electricity isn't available. I want an eight channel with four cameras initially. I assume I need an NVR system. A one TB HD will be sufficient. I don't want a cloud system. I would prefer black cameras, and metal versus plastic. Neither is a deal breaker. Is it possible to get such a system and get push notifications and camera access? You can probably tell I'm new at this, so don't be afraid to tell me what I don't know. I found a Lorex system that fit the bill, but I have heard so many horror stories about their customer service that I am wary of using their product. Qsee has a nice system, but, alas, they don't have battery operated cameras. I have looked at Blink, Arlo, Night Owl, Swann, on and on. Oh, and it can't break the bank. I'm looking at $600. I know that won't get me military grade equipment, but it should get me something decent. Thanks for any help.
