Security Cameras

Re: Security Cameras

My concern was with a few cameras the use of bandwidth would be high.. I've learned cameras are addictive. As our nearest neighbors are over a mile away; there's a lot of activity here. Uploading photos to a cloud is simple. Using wireless cams uploading in real time isn't a challenge either. 

I apologize for communicating what I've learned over years about trail cams. I'll limit offering any advice here in the furure.

We had a prowler. So I mounted a camera in a window.. I have a bunch of photos of the bear wandering around before he checked out the bass boat.. 

Other cams caught the prowler at night.

Look, clearly what you have works (albeit volumnous in your situation) and you've done this a while, maybe if I asked directly:
1. What brand/model of cameras are you using?

2. Are they hooked up to HughesNet or are they connected to something else?

3. If the answer to 2 is 'yes', and because the cams generate a lot of pictures (and if you don't mind saying), which HughesNet plan are you on?

Re: Security Cameras

I'm using 6 different WYZE V2 cameras, you can get them at home depot for $25-$35, you can adjust the quality and upload rate 360, SD, HD.  They work perfect on hughsnet gen5, using an app on iphone or andriod, and have sd storage cards that store video for longer than the 14day (inluded no cost) cloud storage.  We are on the hughesnet 20gb data plan, with unlimited slower 3mb (up/down) after high speed data runs out, and works great in the 3mb data up/down range in 360 and SD mode, when we run out and speeds slow down.

 

I also own a wired security camera system, and it works well too using a cloud service (3rd party always streaming service)  to login to the system.  This uses our data plan faster, but it still works good when main data plan has run out of fast download speeds, as it only relies on the upload, (~3mb) which does not slow down when the plan runs out.
