We're Wiring A Zoo!

by a week ago

You've likely seen my story about the Meerkat Kam where we live stream the Meerkats to YouTube via a UVC G2.  Well now we're back at it!  We're expanding the camera system at the Zoo!  To get started I'll show you a picture that has everything labed that we're using.  As we progress there will be pictures and updates and maybe some video.  You can follow along on Twitter (@WillieHowe) or Instagram (@howex5) too!

I thought your name looked familiar, turns out I'm subsribed to your youtube channel! 

 

Do you have to install that lot on your own? 

 

I know all about the perils of doing IT in a zoo:

Yup just three of us to do the install.  The existing network is all UBNT except the core switch which I also have a replacement for.

Lincoln Park or Brookfield Zoo by chance?? Or is this also at the Peoria Zoo where the meerkat Kam was? Also a fellow Illinois native that follows your channel.

why did you choose Edge Switch 8 Port 150 VS Unifi 8 Port POE are they more reliable?

@kdg44 The network there requires more configuration than the UniFi line can currently handle.  I'm doing routing, QoS, ACLs, etc...

This looks awesomse!  What do you plan to use the twelve ethernet surge protectors on, just twelve of the outdoor cameras?
