2 Network Connections 1 Computer

Right now I'm just in the planning stage and I don't have all the equipment to test anything out I'm just curious if my idea is possible.

 

Network 1: Main Network, does everything a normal home network should do

Network 2: Private Network, only to be used by one computer and POE IP Cameras

 

When I finish building my computer I am upgrading all of our security camera to IP Cameras, My computer will be my daily driver (plex media server, internet browsing, the normal) but also my computer will be used to record all video from the cameras, the only thing is I want it to be impossible to access the IP cameras from the network connected to the outside world (if that makes sense).

 

Yes I know I should probably just buy a stand-alone NVR like my current setup is using a stand-alone DVR but I don't like that idea.

 

I know I'm going to need to add either a single or duel port NIC to my computer since my MB only has 1.

Yes it is possible, but what's the issue with having the IP cameras on your regular home network?

don;t want to expose them to the outside network for a chance to get hacked?

 

but someone lazy as me will probably just plug and unplug two ethernet cable. Ultimately hackers can just hack through your PC to have access to the cameras if you have them both connected at the same time.

Honestly for me it would just be a learning experience, but also to be a little more secured.

Also wouldn't having the cameras on the main network eat up more bandwidth which in return would slow down the network, keep in mind I'm also using the computer as a pled media server.

 

Im currently running plex on my laptop and most the time there are 4 clients pulling from it at once in our household

They'll be slightly more secure I guess, you should still set passwords on the IP cameras regardless of them being on a private network, and malware can still get to them via your PC.

 

It'll eat downstream bandwidth yeah but if you're running a plex server that'd be using upstream so it wouldn't matter, and what are the cameras recording at? It'd barely dent a 1Gb link.
