I would mainly be concerned about (1) how good the low-light/distance coverage of that camera actually is, and (2) whether the quality of the unit would hold up over time. Is the device truly reliable, or would it tend to suffer from firmware lockups when operating 24/7 for weeks at a time?

Those are good points.

Low-light issues should not be a problem... plenty of artificial lighting. That camera also can toss out IR for night-vision, but I think it would reflect off the glass, so that won't work. Reliability though, I hadn't really considered.
