Need wifi for security cameras


Need wifi for security cameras

I have a Nighthawk for home use but recently purchased an investment property. There isn't any electricity there yet. We were robbed yesturday.  We need to have an internet source so we can install a security system while its being worked on. Can anyone tell me what I need for this? Thanks in advance.

You don't have power? 

do you have internet there? 


If you don't have either, then your best bet is a LTE security camera. some of those can go 10-30 days between charges. 

otherwise you're reduced to needing to setup some kind of solar power grid plus a hot spot setup. 

Current setup: CM2000-> RBKE963B-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole
also in AP setup: RAXE500->EAX80
