Case scenario 1: 10 PTZ are to be installed at a distance of 200m apart of alternate utility post. The central control room is to be installed 1000m(3300ft) in the middle of the 2000m(6600ft) total distance of the road to be monitored. However, the lighting posts are obstructed with so many leaves in between. As quoted from one Manufacturer minor obstruction like leaves are insignificant using Flat Panel Antennas.
Case scenario 2: The farthest distance of the camera to the control room are 1000m (3300ft) from the left and 1000m(3300ft) from the right. The option to connect the cabling from cameras to the control room, is to run the cable along the electric and the communication cable, which might cause interference.
Case scenario 3: The 24vdc power for each camera will be drawn from the individual house underneath the lighting post were the camera is installed as home owners agreed.
Proposed Wireless solution:
"RadioLabs has recognized the need for a point to point system that will perform better in situations where complete line of sight is not possible. This kit will have much better penetration through minor trees and small obstructions because the Flat Panel Antennas are made with Circular Polarization."
"In a nutshell, circular polarization means the antenna is better able to receive a clear signal due to the fact that the signal is both vertically and horizontally polarized at the same time. This effect enables the signal to penetrate through small obstructions and "twist" it's way through trees, leaves and small structures." as quoted.
Proposed Wired Solution:
UTP: Running the UTP cable more than limitations of 305m(1000ft) might not be a problem, but beyond this limit it could cause collision problem and dropping down signal. Please propose extenders if there is available and feasible.
Coax: Some manufacture claim that coax can be extended up to 1200m, but I am in doubt. Others says that connecting video baluns can extend the transmission distance of the coax cable. Please comment and advise.
Fibre Optics: Multi mode Fibre optic transmission can be extended to distances of 2km more or less, making this an option of choice for sites where distant cameras are required on the network. We plan to use LC connectors and TX/RX fibre optic - TCP/IP signal converter connected to the NVR. Please advise, I am not very familiar with the accessories that will be needed.
IMPORTANT: The cameras will be monitored 24/7 in the control room by a designated security personnel. The cameras can be accessed by individual authorized homeowners via IOS and android APPs. The video quality is vital on the recording, as I was told that the transmission line plays as an important factor that can affect the camera output.
