I would like to setup a wireless security network with what I think would consist of my laptop, three wireless IP cameras, a NVR, and a router. I Can't get internet on this remote site so my objective is just motion detected HD video. Can such a network be configured? How?

The only equipment (device) I have for this network so far is my laptop with a window 8.0 OS. I invision only using this with the NVR occasionly to view the camera data. I assume that a NVR includes SW that can be loaded into a laptop to enable viewing of stored data? Or maybe some shareware SW?

The router is going to be your key piece as it will handle IP addressing.  After you have the router it is pretty much plug and play.  I'd recommend setting DHCP reservations for each camera, rather than using static IP addresses.

 

Either the cameras or NVR should have software to view the stored data.

Ok, I'm now looking at a wireless TRENDnet TEW-818dru AC1900 router. This router has a duel band feature and has very fast transfer rates. My question is: do I have to find ip cameras that are speed compatable with the router?

Since you are connecting via wireless, AC would be the standard you would want to have in the wifi cameras

It seems that if I'm not using the Internet, that a router may be redundant if I'm using a NVR? From what I read about most wireless NRVs, they communicate directly with the IP cameras? Did I miss something?
