Just starting to read it- Video of parking lots, license plates of vehicles. This is nearly impossible in some situations. What about a shop that doesn’t control its shared parking lot. With a center drive and cars parked in both sides and multiple entrances, that are not under the control of the FFL. How do you even begin to set up a system that will get license plate images. Get permission from other stores to place your cameras on their buildings? And then run wires through their building? This could end up costing a small fortune, much more than the $1500 fee. Simultaneously backed up offsite? The bandwidth requirements are going to be huge. And your local cable company doesn’t like tons of uploading so be prepared to upgrade your internet service.

A constant upload of multiple video streams of sufficient quality (for say 8-12 hours of busines operations) that they desire will completely saturate (or more realistically far exceed) most consumer Internet offerings and likely incure HUGE over bandwidth charges exceeding the data caps on most if not all consumer Internet connections and there isn't options for 'bigger' commercial Internet offerings in most areas. Heck truth be told once you leave big cities and the collar counties there are VAST areas of Illinois where you can't even realistly obtain high speed Internet with a fast enough and big enough pipeline to upload that quantity of video to off site storage everyday that they want to require!
I push my montly consumer data cap and bandwidth just steaming TV (I limit myself to mostly 720p streams to keep bandwidth in check) and that is only one video at a time (maybe two on rare occations) and we don't generally even watch 10 hours of TV a day combined across the family. Forget about uploading 5 or 10 'decent' camera feeds (or 5-10 times the bandwidth I'm currently using) as outlined in the proposal for 8-12 hours of business operations each day to an off site storage facility, it would not happen where I live on the Internet offerings availalble to me, and I'm not even that rural!
