running a camera and wireless station from batteries Answered
im thinking of setting up cameras away from my house and need advice on the power. basically they will be mounted on poles down fields from the house.
what i plan on having is a network camera setup with the Ubiquiti wireless points (https://www.ubnt.com/airmax/nanostationm/). these will form a bridge of 2 or 3 cameras and the cameras will be connected to each, with one of the wireless points mounted on the top of the house to connect to.
what i cant figure out is the power. i would like to run a power cable down the field sometime but this will be costly and i want to try this out to make sure it works.
i know deep cycle batteries would be best but i cant join the rest together. i know there will be a POE connecting into the wireless box and this will be split, so how would i join this to the battery, as would a converter be needed or any other suggestions would help. thanks!
