I'm asking for help building a IP network surveillance system for my home I can control with my iPad and iPhone. This is what I have so far:
Just upgraded to Comcast Xfinity X1
iPhone 5 with Sprint
iPad with Verizon service

I'm looking at Maybe 4 D-link-942L
Netgear FS108P ProSafe 8 port 10/100Mbs
What other suggestions you have to make it work
An app to make it work with my phone and iPad. I would like to access my cameras anywhere. First of all will it work? Is there a better way?
Thanks

The Xfinity / Comcast Home system allows you to do that and will provide the equipment for a fee (which is probably less than buying it yourself and putting it together).  I just got the basic system with a camera and some other security devices for signing up for a new promotion.  They have it all working already.  Unless you want to go thru the education of making it work, I'd suggest you get it from them.  You can get the 'consumer' version or a professionally monitored system.

Thanks Dave,
That's certainly one solution. I had basic cable for 25 yrs and just upgraded to tell you the type of person I am! I'm looking for something a little more simpler with a few cameras I can move around and monitor on my iPad without a monthly fee. If I don't get any suggestions I will probably just trial and error it.

I think you will spend a lot more time and money trying to do it on your own.
