What do you perceive a budget would be? Would $2,000 be logical? Do you have line power at every location, or will you need battery power? How portable and covert does it need to be? How do you plan on securing the rig? Lots of variables here.

I don't know how low tech you are willing to go for the "rig" as I would call it, but a 5 gallon bucket with a 4x4 post cemented in it would serve as a decent base. Then mount an enclosure (pelican case?) to house the battery device. I would simply use a 1500VA UPS. Then mount a 3MP IR dome higher up on the post. I would simply use edge recording via SD card.
Now this would be an easy to deploy rig, which also means easy to steal. So that's where I'm unsure how you could secure it. Maybe chain it to a tree/post/stake?
That should come in well under $2000 cost and be able to rent/sell at a good markup.
