It's a small (no, I won't write that word here.)
I'm working on a system where they take snaps at the end of the line and I'll share that we use an EyeFi card to cut the cord and fumble issues of image transfer. But that's just me sharing.
More to the point, a few WalMart construction lamps would be under 100 bucks and we put that on a timer switch so they can hit and get 15 minutes of good light. I won't guess what your install would cost but this was far cheaper than getting a many thousand buck camera.
We are using a 70 buck camera with the 35 buck EyeFi card so the cost of removing the lighting looks to be a great way of escalating the cost of this system.
