Networked security cameras over internet

  HighTower 17:16 28 Dec 2006

A friend of mine is taking over the running of a new bar and wants to install web cameras on the premises. The idea is that he can log on from home and see what's going on, aswell as having them watching tills and the like. Whilst this is a standard practice in a lot of licenced premises he's not sure how to set this up and neither am I!

I'm guessing fixed IP web hosting and networked web cams integrated in a website of some description, but not sure what else.

Anyone done this before?

First: you need a server at the premises with a special card in it, which accepts the feeds from the camera's. Depending on how many camera's are proposed, will depend upon how many ports in the card you need.

Second: you need the required number of camera's of the correct sort for what you what to do. Cables have special terminals and are generally pre-manufactured.

Third: you need software on the client that enables you to view multi-camera views and select any particular image you want at a given time.

Fourth: you need a dedicated service provider that can give you the bandwidth required for your particular installation. This will vary depending on the installation.
