[Discuss] Home security & automation

I have three of the primary cameras andmy network gear on battery backup.
The cameras are also are IR capable.

I don't track the FTP traffic ....But the emailed photos are about 40K each
and are on movement only.

I use Foscam FI8918W and Foscam FI8905W cameras.

A decentralized plan like this might work best.
What about power and lighting? Deidcated or shared network?

What has been your experience with camera brands, models, recommended

If you have ftp set up how much data transfer does this use per month?
