Wireless CCTV Cameras

Just a quick question, been approached by a friend for some advice, and I couldnt help so I thought I would ask you guys.

He needs a wireless security camera setup. He wants it to be 5.8ghz so it doesnt interfere with his 2.4ghz wireless network.

My understanding is, he can use 2.4ghz, but run it on a different channel and this will stop said interference.

Also, he wants between 4-6 wireless cameras, connected back to a DVR for 24/7 recording, its his business, so 24/7 is essential. I cannot seem to find any wireless cameras that I can setup with a DVR does anyone have any experience or any ideas on the subject?

EDIT: Probably needs range of 300m or so.

I will ask the people that set me up with my system what options are available for wireless on Monday. Business security and
surveillance is the only thing they do and they are quite good at it..

There are several different ways to go: there are pre-packaged systems that you can get with 4 cameras and a DVR, or you can get individual cameras that record to flash and then you download them, or you can get cameras that can be monitored by a computer system with special software that records to disk.

In addition, the system can be set up so that you take a snapshot every x seconds, or they snapshot until they detect motion and then switch to full-motion video, or they just sit until they detect motion and take a snapshot, or they just sit until they detect motion and then start recording full-motion video.

The great thing about the motion detection stuff is that the cameras don't have to have motion sensors: the cameras basically run continuously, and the recorder has special software that looks for changes in the image and then takes the appropriate action.

There are a number sites on the web selling this stuff, so you can look and get an idea of what's available. However, since ccperf has some experts he can query on the topic, I'd also wait and see what he can find out.

Are wireless security cameras really that good?

Easy to jam the signals, I would have thought.

I would have to agree with you. However, we are looking at securing a caravan park. We arent attempting to secure a jewellers against a robbery.

Gizmo: that third option sounds good, cameras that run continuously but only record video once motion is detected. This sounds like what we're after.

Ccperf: thanks very much, that'd be muchly appreciated!
