I have been doing some research at setting up a security camera system in our home. I would like to hide the DVR in the attic, while still being able to access it wirelessly with our computer. Our family uses the Verizon MiFi 5510L to access the Internet.
I am considering buying a Peplink/Pepwave router and setting it up as a bridge in order to connect the DVR to the MiFi. Am I at all on the right track here? The DVR would be connected to the bridge via ethernet in the attic, the bridge would communicate with the MiFi, and then obviously the MiFi is a gateway to the Internet (allowing us to access the DVR from anywhere). I had seen a post during my research that had specific details on how to link a 5510L with a Peplink/Pepwave router.
And I am correct that if this setup works, it would not be a constant drain on data right? It would only use data when we actively connect via Internet to the DVR to review or manage footage.
Thank you all for any help and advice you can give.
