Install 4 whether proof outdoor security cameras. (or 5 should the budget allow for it).

Camera 1 is actually behind a garage window facing the front yard

Camera 2 will be facing the driveway

These are the most important ones

I take your advice on best location

Image 1 for house floorplan. This is a single story house. Measures are approximate and building roughly fit in an area of 10.0 x 32.8m

M is the monitoring room where the recorder will be installed.

Must have

• Night/infrared vision

• Recorder (with a mode to save storage by recording/detecting movements)

• Wired IP Cameras.

• Recordings are (securely) accessible from the web

• It should be possible to clearly see a car rego from camera 1 and 2

Nice to have

• Full HD

• Recordings accessible via mobile devices (Android preferably).

See below pictures of the proposed location of cameras and recorder

For Monitoring Room

• Cables will run down behind the plaster board close to the proposed Recorder location

• Be mindful of existing power point

• Proper access to that wall will be provided by the time the work is performed.

Happy to take questions, if you have any spot to work on this by the end of this week that would be a bonus but I understand if your agenda is already full.

Drop me an e-mail to send you the pictures, looks like I can’t attach them directly here.
