    Does anyone here have any experience with remote monitoring?

    My situation is a property of about 4000m block rectangular shape about 23 wide and quite long. house which I tenanted at one end on a fenced off section. The back end backs onto a park and has neighbours.
    The neighbours park a truck (which I don't mind even though they haven't asked) and throw rubbish etc around. When confronted they deny it. So I want to install some cameras around the place.
    the house is quite far from the troublesome neighbours and there is no power source at the back of the block.

    Can anyone recommend a provider of cameras and installation? Anyone have a similar experience?

    A friend of mine purchased a holiday property with external camera monitoring and works wonders for catching neighbours doings things they shouldn't. He is able to access the system 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

    Google security camera installation for your area.

    Be careful of legal requirements with cameras on residential property.

    Different in each state, but have a read of http://www.ipc.nsw.gov.au/cctv-private-property and the links included within will give you some ideas.

    In some places
    - Not allowed to be pointing towards another's property
    - Have to have a sign which clearly states CCTV is in operation

    Also guys and gals I've been pointed in the direction of Rapid deployable solar powered self contained cameras that transmit the signal to your phone. There are some tall trees on the place so 2 of these will do the job. Probably $2k installed by a climber though.

    The requirements, in short, are basically to keep the camera focused on your own property and whatever you do, never record audio.
