One of the quickest and easiest ways is the Wilife system. I think Logitech owns the company now. It has relatively inexpensive but very smart cameras and some stealth cameras (clock radio camera) etc. It communicates with the computer via the power line (homeplug). Very simple to install.

A dual pol panel antenna can be an order of magnitude more difficult to make than a single linear polarized antenna. Almost all panel antennas are either an array of patches or an array of butterfly dipole elements over a ground plane. Most designers are trying to put as much gain in the area

Yes, the normal float voltage for flooded cell batts is 2.25 VPC. For a 48 Volt battery that is 24 cells x 2.25 = 54 volts. Some folks charge at 55 volts. Then during discharge, some consider 1.8 VPC to be the lower limit. 24 x 1. = 43.2 volts. I personally like 44 volts as the lower limit.
