Remote video or picture surveillance, with no internet connection or power. So this device would need a battery and most likely cell phone reception of some kind.


Anyone know of anything that exists for this purpose?

Hmm. Thanks for the link but I think you still need internet access for those cameras, which I would not have available.

You could rig up a netbook of some sort with an external webcam and a 3g card in it (just pop out the wifi adapter and replace it with a 3g card with a sim card holder.) As for the power issue, you could keep it plugged in and run it off battery when power goes out. I would imagine the 3g card would hammer on the power since it would be constantly active.
