Using a USB Internet Dongle for 24 hour access CCTV PC monitoring
Posted on 2007-12-06
We have broadband at home and also broadband in the office to access the CCTV PC we have bought and have 4 cameras connected to it.
We currently have to pay about £200 a year to BT (UK telephone provider) for a line rental charge, then we pay our broadband provider for the internet connection.
We no longer use the telephone at all and only look at the CCTV PC for a few minutes at a time mainly at a weekend using logmein.com to check doors have been closed properly to the shared entrance way.
I have looked at using a mobile internet connection such as the £10 per month package offered by 3 Mobile that does not require a telephone line but my main concern is that this kind of solution will not provide the same reliable 24/7 always on internet connection my current router installation provides.
Can any provide me with information or suggestions please?
