With the continuing annoyance from motion, my manager’s asked me to go looking again for a video surveillance appliance: basically, a motion-detecting DVR and cameras. The big thing, of course, is a) price
(this is a US federal gov’t agency, and being civilian, money is *tight*, don’t give me the libertarian/GOP line about how freely we spend, thankyouverymuch), b) it has to be on the network, and c) we need to be able to d/l to a server, and rm after we do that… and we want to script or cron job that.
Right now, I’m looking into Zmodo, R-Tech and CIB security. Anyone have a)
opinions on the quality of the hardware from any of those manufacturers
(yeah, I know, they’re just branded hardware), and/or whether we can do the SSH or telnet in to do what we need?
*Extremely* frustrating, since they’re all running embedded Linux, that so many say IE and Active X….
