I figured that I bother everyone enough so I'm going to ask this one here. I have to install 4 bullets and a ptz out in a parking lot on a light pole that has power on it. I am thinking about mounting a wireless access point on the edge of the building that connects to  another access point on the light pole where the cameras will be mounted. My questions are, how far away from the nvr can I mount the access point and how many cameras can one wireless bridge accommodate.  I'm thinking of using  4 IPOB-EL2MPIR50 cameras and a #IPPTZ-EL2MPL20X PTZ.

First off, don't ever think you bother anyone with your questions.   We enjoy the questions and challenges that can come with them.  To answer your question,  technically the NVR can be anywhere as long as there is an Internet connection.  Because you can put the cameras and their access point on an Internet connection,  do some port forwarding and stream them to an NVR off site.  But I think what you are referring to is on the same site.  With data you have a limitation of 328 feet from origination to destination,  but you can add up to 3 switches in a line to increase that distance.   So you could have your NVR approx 1000 feet away in one direction and the access point approx 1000 feet in the other direction,  from the router.  This is because all the communication is occurring through the router and that is the point of origination for both devices.  With our access points you can go 9 miles line of sight from each other and have 150Mbps through put.  And average 2mp camera will produce 8Mbps.   You can only utilize roughly half the through put so, theoretically I would answer 8 when the access point is going to a gigabit switch.   I hope this helps!

Ryan, Thanks for the help. This should help save on installation costs and on digging trenches and repairing all the existing wiring that we would cut in the process.
