Hello members! I was hoping to get some advice regarding a potential project. I have a HOA that wants to install two cameras at the entrance to the community to monitor incoming traffic. I plan to install one overview camera and a dedicated LPR camera. They have a large brick sign that will allow perfect position for the cameras. There is already a power on the sign. The problem is the sign is in the middle of nowhere. There are no adjacent buildings to house a dvr.
My preliminary idea is this.
1. Install two camera as normal on the side wall of sign.
1. Install weatherproof housing large enough for DVR, cable modem and router for internet.
My question is will a normal DVR, cable modem and router last in a weatherproof housing. Does anyone have any experience with this? Can you recommend housing, routers or anything else that might be useful?
There is a cable line a few feet away so I don’t think I will have a problem with the cable company running a line for the internet. I guess they would have to set up a new address for the sign.
Thanks in advance for any help, suggestions.
