I thought that I would turn to the experts on this forum for some general design guidance on hardware selection for a project as there are so many potential solutions that I am somewhat overwhelmed in trying to find the simplest solution.
I have a workshop that I rent that is 1000 feet from my home with partially occluded LoS but I cannot install a traditional security system due to the lack of internet/phone connectivity and issues with monitoring companies refusing to install at a location not physically attached to my house. Running an amplified signal over twisted pair would not work either since I do not own the property between points. I've considered a GSM system but that might be a little overkill; the only requirement is that a single motion detector at the workshop needs to send a signal if tripped to some sort of receiver at my home base, which will then send an email alert.
Given the nature of what I am trying to do, what hardware would you recommend? If it matters, I am comfortable with coding in most languages and can solder reasonably well. Your help is greatly appreciated!
