Hello, please see picture attached. I need too install two surveillance cameras that are 550 feet away from the main building where the Internet Connection is. I am looking for recommendations of which device to use with some trees in they way, I consider it mild to moderate foilage. Is it ok to use 5ghz here or would 900mghz / 2.4ghz be better?

Getting above the trees would not be practical in this situation, if the air is clear what would be a good device to use for this application?

Never use 900MHz for anything unless it's a last resort.
Never use 2.4GHz in an urban setting unless you have
no other choice and you have checked for interference--
this band is usually saturated by local WiFi users. This
band can often permit a path that's lightly occuded.
Those trees don't appear to be obstacles you couldn't
avoid by moving the path a bit. You may have to do more
work than you like, but microwave radio needs clear paths.
For example, to the north, there are two small trees that
you could dodge easily enough. I only see a barrier to the
south--where you chose a point directly behind a tree.
You may need to setup a mast or cut the tree down.
[I'm only kidding...]
When you find a clear path, use a pair of NBE-5AC-Gen2
radios. Of course, be sure to elevate the path so it is above
any vehicle traffic. Dave
