    I have a customer who has an office with five rooms. He would like me to install a video camera at the front door and then be able to see who walks into the office lobby on his computer. The individual rooms' computers are not networked but he does have WIFI. He says he thinks that there is a way toput the video signal over the WIFI so that everyone in the office with a computer who is logged on to that WIFI will be able to see the camera signalon their computer. Is there a way to do this? Thanks, Lenny

    There will only be one camera and I misspoke about the rooms. Yes there arefive but it will most likely be viewed in just two, or perhaps three. Can I hard wire the cameras to each room and then somehow hard wire into the individual computers? Lenny

    For running wires, I use CAT5, not coax cable.
    A friend wants to wire his home for cameras. The front door is the most
    troublesome: inside the door is the living room, high ceilings and windows
    running almost the full height.

    How does one get power (and if using wired cameras, data) to/from a camera?

    I told him it would require significant ripping up of the sheetrock
    (textured, of course) and re-doing it all after the install. He isn't

    Any suggestions how to do this that isn't so messy?
