General Ordering Guidelines
Generally, if the pool size is greater than 20 feet in width OR 30 ft in length, you may need more than 1 camera when the camera is placed along the width of the pool. If the pool size is greater than 24 feet in width OR 40 feet in length, you need two or more cameras. However, if the distance of the installed camera is less than 10 feet from the closest point in the pool then one camera may not be able to cover the entire view of the pool and you might need two or more cameras. Each CamerEye Smart Hub is able to support up to four (4) cameras. See camera specs here.
If you have a power outlet in your backyard and it is less than 30 feet from the camera mounting spot, you do not need to order extra cables. If the power outlet is more than 30 feet from the camera mounting spot you may need a power extender cable as per the distance.
You can purchase power cables from Amazon using the the links below:
If the Wi-Fi router is less than 100 feet (approx.) from the backyard or the pool area, then you may not need a Wi-Fi extender. If it is more than that, we recommend adding a Wi-Fi extender for enhanced reliability.
You can purchase extenders from TP-LINK using the the links below:
Portable Wi-Fi Hotspot (2.4 GHz)
If CamerEye is being installed on a "green field" site (a new construction site where there is no existing Wi-Fi) or a remote pool location, then you may need to have a hotspot to create a network connection for the cameras to connect. Please note that it needs a sim card to operate.
