Please excuse my ignorance.
My son has a Gourmet Burger restaurant. Last week it was targeted in an attack designed to put him out of business.
I've bought him a CCTV system which requires a wired connection.
He currently has the small yellow 4GEE mini which he uses to stream Sportify, & to connect their ordering & payment system to the Internet.
I know absolutely nothing about this stuff. How can I give him a wired connection whilst still giving him wifi etc.?
The shop has no phone line, & is empty when it's closed, so the ability for the CCTV to send updates to his phone via the Internet is essential.
I've been recommended the Netgear Nighthawk M1 but it's a little pricey for me after spending over £500 on the cameras & the monthly payments on either the 30 day rolling contract or the 24 month contract are way more than he's currently paying.
Cost is a major issue, he has very restrictive insurance that is only partly covering the repairs to his shop, so I'm looking for suggestions that are cost effective but also easy to set up.
Please help, he's desperate & considering giving up on the business he's put his heart & soul into for the last 2 years.

Thanks for the reply.
Does the Home router require a phone line? The shop doesn't have one.
Are there any plans for around £20 pm?
He currently pays less than £20pm & would be unable to afford £40+ pm

I must admit the product does look ideal, however it's just way too expensive. As I say he currently pays around £18pm and even then doesn't use all of his allowance, which I think is about 20gb.
100gb is overkill and just wouldn't get used.
Is there anything else other than the Netgear Nighthawk M1 that is a more reasonable price with smaller monthly payments?

Are you sure the CCTV system only requires a wired connection? Most will operate over WiFi. Which CCTV system is it?

I'm pretty sure its wored only. It would be good if it can do both though...

You're right. It looks like it is wired only incl. the cameras.
