I am interested in purchasing this product. I would just like to know if there is a limit to the number of wireless ip cameras one can use on the system. Can you mix wired and wireless cameras?

Security Monitor Pro supports over 1800 camera models. You can mix wired and wireless cameras on the same system.

If your wireless cameras are on separate networks, you can monitor as many as your license will allow. If your wireless cameras are on the same network, I suggest using fewer than 4 wireless cameras. A wireless G network is 54MBps and a Wireless N network is 300Mbps. A typical IP camera at 640x480 and 30fps can easily take 7-10Mbps by itself. Factoring in TCP/IP retransmission from wireless network collisions, the effective bandwidth on the wireless network is significantly reduced.
