I have two buildings. Broadband modem and Firewall/Router are in Building A. Building B has a wireless access point and ethernet switch. They are connected by a wireless building to building bridge. Currently all one network, with DHCP served out by the Building A Router.

I have Wyze Cams in both buildings, smart devices and a hub in Building B. Everything works great in normal circumstances. Building A cameras and alerts, and Building B Cameras, door sensors, etc and alerts. BUT... I have had a few situations where either:

1- Building A broadband modem/ISP failure
2- Building to Building wireless bridge failure
3- Building B switch failure

... have led to events or alerts being missed, or camera footage failing to upload.

I'm looking at this Netgear 4G failover modem to put in Building B.

I'm hoping to get this all set up such that if either of those 3 items occurs again, both buildings will have internet access and I will not miss alerts. Trickiness is if the wireless bridge goes down, my building B devices have no DHCP/DNS.

Any recommendations on how to solve this in a redundant way? Thanks...
