Internet connection for a security cam system

Hello,I am interested in the cheapest option to supply the internet for my security cam base station.

This will be the only use for the device.

Got a model number so that we can check its requirements?

Re: Internet connection for a security cam system

Hello,

I have an Arlo Pro 2.

I have it working fine using my home Telstra Nighthawk, connected with a LAN.

But ideally, I want it to work at another location and have its own internet connection.

I am currently thinking of a pre-paid mobile broadband style of device, but will I need a physical connection such as a LAN or a USB or can I connect the Arlo Pro 2 Base station wirelessly? And if so: how ?

 

Thanks 

Best regards,

 

Dave

Re: Internet connection for a security cam system

The base station needs to be connected to you modem by ethernet cable.

 

The problem with using a mobile broadband product is that you will need IPv4 connectivity and some of the Telstra network uses IPv6. A Nighthawk M2 or M5 should work, but you may need to play around with the settings.
