How To Simulate The Image That An IP Camera Will Using a DSLR Camera?

I am going to be going on site to a customer to work on planning the camera layout. I am planning on using a camera 2mp 16:9 camera in hallway mode with a varifocal of 5 - 12 mm.

I have a canon dslr camera (t3i). Two questions:

What which lens would be best to overal simulate the image from the ip cameras?

Are there any settings I can set on the camera, that would best simulate the camera being 16:9 in hallway mode?

I know that it wont show the quality of the IP cameras image. What I am more trying to do is show what would be visible.

Thank you
