    Nice drawing. The buildings are approximately 200-300 max distance to the farthest camera away. I was considering home running all cams but using 8 ports at each would cut down on cable costs.

    Owner is trenching some areas. He just doesn’t want to do it all over the place. The stables close to each other I’m just gonna trench from one to another. Will I need another switch near Nvr? If anyone has other design ideas please let me know. Pay attention to my legend. It’s rough but a start.

    Horse farm. Multiple buildings

    I used ubiquiti once. 1300 ft thru trees. Locom9. Works good as of 3 months. **But this site may not have great internet due to such a rural area. Is there a way to use these bridges and split with Poe switches and have entire system recording as one even if Internet is down?
