This video reviews an outdoor wireless security camera design that spans multiple buildings. This system is installed at a self storage facility in Boynton Beach, Florida. We used a drone to capture video of the installation and to show the size of the property. This system uses
WIFI-NAN5 wireless transmitters, a WIFI-OMNI5 omni-directional antenna, GeoVision IP cameras, and a custom built PC-based GeoVision NVR.

Custom Wireless Surveillance Systems
Not sure exactly what you need? Do you require a more complex setup and need some advice? Our system engineers can help design a wireless video surveillance system that fits your needs and can include any of the following parts: wireless access points,
point to point, point to multi-point / multiple buildings, long-range wireless antennas, indoor and outdoor IP cameras, PoE network switches, NVRs (network DVRs for IP cameras), hybrid DVRs that work with analog and IP cameras, cables, and any other accessories and tools that you need.

Below are some images that were taken from an installation that one of CCTV Camera Pros' installation partners completed in Boca Raton, Florida in Palm Beach County. The installation was for a homeowners association and there was a challenge of installing two cameras on two poles about 900 feet from where the digital video recorder was housed (at the clubhouse). The solution was to use four
F731E Outdoor IP cameras and two wireless security camera systems along with weatherproof mounting hardware and outdoor enclosures to contain the POE power supplies and network switches for the two cameras.

The systems allow CCTV installers to enable the wireless capability to all traditional CCTV cameras with the addition of a
security camera video encoder and a video decoder. The video encoder/decoder pair also allows you to control PTZ dome cameras using RS-485 protocol. If you intend on using IP security cameras, then you do not need to use a video encoder and decoder because the IP transmission of IP cameras works natively with the WIFI-EN95610 and WIFI-EH9500 wireless security camera systems. The main purpose of these systems is to provide a cost-effective solution for remote and hard-to-reach camera locations where dredging and cable laying is not practical or is too expensive.
WIFI-EN95610 and WIFI-EH9500 use the latest digital wireless OFDM modulation in the less crowded 5GHz radio band, providing transmission rates that significantly reduce signal interference. Because the system is full-duplex, it supplies a very stable wireless link. The system also uses image processing software to deliver hi-definition, full-motion, ripple-free video up to 3 miles (WIFI-NAN72) or 1 mile (WIFI-EH9500) with direct line-of-sight. The WIFI-NAN72 and WIFI-EH9500 also offer considerably improved data security via either AES or RC4 key encryption.
This wireless camera system has been designed for ease-of-use and flexibility. System set-up and configuration are quick and easy tasks using the built-in user interface which allows you to easily configure your access point and bridge pairs. If transmission of over 4 miles is required or the signal path needs to change direction, two or more
WIFI-EN95610 and WIFI-EH9500 can be connected in series using the repeater mode.
Overall, this wireless camera system from CCTV Camera Pros provides a versatile, all-in-one wireless transmission solution for
IP cameras and CCTV cameras. It offers the best performance in all environments and weather conditions and provides integrators and installers with a system that is easy to set-up, simple to install and operate.
Wireless Security Camera Diagram
The above diagram illustrates one possible solution using CCTV Camera Pros wireless system. This displays a simple example of how an installer can deploy a surveillance system across multiple buildings that are not wired together or even on the same IP network. Each building can have no existing network also.
In this example, building A contains two CCTV cameras (analog cameras) that are wired directly to the hybrid NVR / DVR using RG59 coax cable or pre-made plug and play CCTV cables. The NVR is connected to the network of building A by connecting to the router via cat-5 cable. To the right of the router is a cable or DSL modem which will allow Internet access to the entire system if desired. To the left of the router in building A, and mounted on the outside wall is the wireless system receiver. The wireless receiver is connected wirelessly to the wireless transmitter on building B which is directly across from it with a direct line of sight for communication (direct line of sight is required between antennas). Building B's wireless transmitter is connected to a network switch in building B (not a router) via CAT-5 cable. The network switch is connected to two network video servers via CAT5 cable. The network video servers are each connected to a CCTV camera using RG59 coax cable or a premade CCTV cable. The purpose of the network servers is to convert the analog video signal of the camera, make it digital, and transmit it using TCP/IP to the network via the network switch and in turn the wireless camera transmitter.
In summary, the wireless camera system's transmitter and receiver create a wireless network. The router in building A assigns IP addresses to all of the devices in building B and in turn, make building B's IP devices part of building A's network. The hybrid DVR / NVR in building A is capable of connecting both to wired CCTV cameras as well as IP cameras and IP video servers bringing all of the cameras in both buildings together into a single surveillance system. With high-speed internet access in place in building A and port forwarding/firewall settings set up properly, users can access all of the cameras from both buildings remotely over the Internet by connecting to the NVR / DVR's web camera service.

The below installation diagrams should be used to help you plan your wireless system installation carefully for the best results possible.
The above installation image illustrates that it is important to mount your wireless transmitter & receiver on poles to raise them above any obstructions. Besides raising them, it is equally important to make sure that there is a direct line of sight between them.
When positioning your wireless transmitter and/or receiver units on roof-tops, provide a clear line-of-sight and avoid the possibility of signal multi-pathing by raising them on poles or locating them on the edge of the roofs.
The ground plane can cause multi-path issues and can significantly affect the range of your wireless transmission.
