A customer contacted us with the following questions related to choosing the best surveillance camera to mount outdoors near the ocean:
I have a beach house on the Gulf of Mexico. I have a wireless security monitoring system monitored by a company from a remote call center. Basically a motion detector system and some contact closures.
I want to add remote monitoring of my own using an iPhone 4. I have ATT DSL service, along with an Apple Time Capsule wireless router.
I would like to have two devices that do the monitoring that can be seen on the iPhone, one interior and the other exterior. I am concerned about corrosion from the salt air for the exterior system.
Do you have some suggestions?

Vandal dome cameras tend to hold up better because everything is enclosed really well. Please take a look at this vandal dome camera. It is IP67 weatherproof rated which will hold up well in the harsh climate near the ocean and salt in the air:
For your interior, please take a look at this interior dome camera:
If you connect both of these camera to this 4 channel video server, you can access your cameras from your iPhone or iPad with the free app that is included:
