Stand alone network camera
Posted on 2003-03-10
We have a remote office location connected via a 256K frame connection. I would like to set up a camera at this site so we watch the progress on a building going up. Only 1 or 2 people would access the camera at a time to watch the video on the intranet (not on the internet).
I would like a nice image (640x480 or higher) updated at least once every few seconds. It also needs to be standalone. We use CAT5 cable and there is a CAT5 ethernet connection where I want the camera to go. I would like to avoid setting up a computer for the camera so if someone can suggest a good standalone camera for this application I would appreciate it. I do understand the camera would need to connect to some sort of box, which would contact the network connection, possibly a hard drive, etc. Thanks!
