Also on the DVR or webserver stuff, getting one has an app for the smart phone or iPad is a great way to check up on your property
I'm thinking about making a trench with my chain saw (old chain) and running outdoor wire down to the hive with the end capped with an outdoor rated outlet. But sounds like you are saying step it down to 12 volts which would make it easier in terms of what actually has to be at the end of the line attached to the camera.

Like the idea of a smart phone application to view. Noticed some camera manufactures have web based viewing with camera. I'm going to most likely use the same setup for a home security camera so will probably figure out how to hang it off my server anyway.
