Hi j4co,So i finally ordered the ptz cameras. Decided to go for the sd49225-hn due to cost.
All the posts about the autotracking of HNI verisons of the 5xxx series did not convince me in investing almost the double amount.
As written above i will hook up IR line sensors along the fences upper part and steer both ptz to the part that alarms, en in normal position cover the back garden in overview.
I am now busy in finalyzing the contracts for the work on the house. Building will start in week 48 of this year.
Thank you for the helpfull tips, but ...Hi j4co,
Sounds like you're soon ready for some fun when they put up the framing!
I've made some notes esp for new construction, let me know if I should add anything.
New Construction additional notes:
- Before the drywall goes up is the most affordable time to add wiring. Pull wires to all locations you may use - better to over do it now than under do it.
- Pull N+1+ cat5e/cat6 wires to each location, N=the number you plan to use, pull at least one extra line.
- Remember to add wiring for alarms, extra electrical sockets to support your security cameras, media center, data center ( that's where your switch, NVR, NAS will be ), as well as the front entrance, wifi access points and routers, voice control units like Echo Dot, speaker/audio wiring,..
- Pull electrical and several cat5e/cat6 lines to your front gate area. ( 2 sets of underground conduit is best - one for electrical the other data/cat5e/cat6 )
- Plan for the option to install video intercom / video doorbell by the front door and gate. ( example of such a product http://www1.dahuasecurity.com/pro...-7391.html ) Plan for future upgrades as this tech is changing quickly.
- Have the electricians install METAL boxes - I have seen too many subcontractors and later tenants break plastic gang boxes.
- Inspect the job site regularly - even daily, Inspect for straightness and squares, many subcontractors measure only once...
- Consider hiring an independent inspector to help you.
- "Wireless connections are for devices that run on batteries. Everything that can be wired should be. Save yourself and others from years of connectivity problems and run network cables to your office, bedrooms, media center, and locations where you want to install wifi access points. Unless you like slow speeds and intermittent connections." - from another forum
