Proactive is my management philosophy here at O'Kelly's, our intent is to comply fully with all rules and regulations regarding my liquor license and the City of Fargo.

Recently, we had an incident in which a few of our employees were found drinking on premise long after the bar had been closed. Along with working closely with the Fargo Police Department, I felt that we needed to implement a video surveillance system which would allow us to monitor operations on site, as well as remotely. Requirements were that myself, along with my management team, would be notified of any movement during specified hours and that no video was to be stored in house.

From my research, I found that byRemote could provide us with the video solution that I was looking for. With byRemote storing the video off-site on their servers, I'm assured that the video can't be tampered with and we have anytime access to the video, regardless where we're at. Once the system was installed, a motion detection feature was added to notify my by e-mail with video snapshots of any person or persons that were at the bar during the restricted hours. All of my employees know that they are to be out of the bar by a certain hour and they know now that they will be recorded if they're not.

Preventative is the key word.... all of my employees have been made aware of the cameras and know that myself and my management team are monitoring the video. I feel that the video surveillance allows us to run a "tighter ship" and actually, our employees appreciate this.

In closing, I would recommend byRemote to anyone who is planning to install a video surveillance system. The installation was professional and quick and the after-installation support is provided with a low monthly fee and now with this being done, I have more time to concentrate on managing the rest of my business."

Power-over-Ethernet Installation
Power over Ethernet or PoE technology describes any system to transmit electrical power, along with data, to remote devices over a standard twisted-pair cable in an Ethernet network. This technology is useful when it would be inconvenient or infeasible to supply power to each camera. Maximum distance per run is approximately 300 feet. The Category 5 (Cat5) cable runs may be either plenum or non-plenum.

For the byRemote surveillance system using PoE-ready cameras:

  • Run 1 Cat5 cable to each camera location and terminate with RJ-45 connectors at both ends. See RJ-45 pin-out below.

Low-Voltage Installation
When the cameras are not capable of Power-over-Ethernet a power source will have to be provided. Instead of having to install an electrical outlet near each camera location, it is recommended to run 2-stranded, non-shielded 18-gauge electrical wire to each camera location. This can be run at the same time the Cat5 cable is run. All cabling should come back to the main location where the router will be placed (typically the office area).

For the byRemote surveillance system using non-PoE cameras:

  • Run 1 Cat5 cable to each camera location and terminate with RJ-45 connectors at both ends.
  • Run 1 18-gauge electrical cable to each camera location and splice with the power supply. Please note whether the camera is AC or DC on the power supply that comes with each camera.

RJ-45 Pinout
Ethernet 10/100 Mbit (Cat5) network cable wiring and layout of 8 pin RJ-45 male connector. For straight-through cable, terminate the same at both ends of the Cat5 cable.
