Firstly I wnated to thank you for sharing this informative article. After reading your article, i clearly understand all the advantages of using IEEE 1394 for surveillance application which offers a much more robust set of capabilities than does Ethernet. http://www.ad-hocsecurity.com/15-ip-cameras

Thank you for your feedback t.alex. No, it is not required to run separate cables for each camera. That's is exactly one of the key advantages of using 1394. The version of this article that is published on the 1394 Trade Association web site (http://www.1394ta.org/press/WhitePapers/1394MaximizesValue.html) has some images that refer specifically to this point. As far as wireless technologies are concerned, although my expertize on wireless is limited at the moment, I think that it is probably much easier to sabotage a wireless network with a DOS attack than it is for a wired network. So, personally I wouldn't install wireless security to protect anything valuable, unless the technology came straight from NASA.

When deploying 1394-based security cameras, is it required to run separate wires all over the places? Isn't it better if we can base on some wireless technology (e.g. Wifi) to cut down on this cost?
