8 cameras, wired, 1028*944 res with dvd and 60' wire, $ 280
« on: August 16, 2011, 07:19:57 PM »

Not sure if anyone wants to hear but after having 8 wireless x10 cam up for a few years, I finally bought a dvd motion system.  what a difference.  I can see license plates at 30', night vision IR, motion software on the pix that really works, email me if motion, 3g to phone, internet pix live that you can see, 500gb hd good for 2 weeks then rewrites automatically.  cant believe I put up with the x10 so long!  what a world of difference!  this system rocks.

So, are you bashing X10? or are you saying something made our system work better?

Where can I get info on the dvd motion system? I have been trying since beginning of June to get my 4 camera's to work. I have 3 working but unable to get the 4th camera to work. When I use the remote, the 4 camera's work fine, but when I try to go from camera to camera using my cell phone or use the AHP app on my computer without the remote, only 3 camera's will come in. Thanks!

No bashing.  I have used X10 to turn stuff lites on and off since it seems around 1970, so I would not bash.

I simply pointed out perhaps others may want to consider other than X10 for cameras.  I have one $ 70 IP camera that is HD and can zoom to a license plate at 300 yards.  I figured as a dedicated X10 owner and user I owed it to my fellow users to suggest there is life outside of, but in addition to, X10 - that happens to WORK for cameras and recording.  NO bash intended.  Sometimes life just must go on.  I will look later tonight for the brand and stuff to post for those who expressed interest in a low cost alternative video thing.

ebay and such my unit I am happy with if you wish:  zmodo.com   8 camera system with remote and internet capability.

Im not seeing anything with that resolution. How about some model numbers or a link to where you ordered. And some screenshots for sure.

There is going to be a huge improvement with a wired system over RV, and major improvement with that high of resolution, but a lot of it also falls into your recording settings and capacity.

Still I want to see what you are talking about for sure!

anyway, here are a couple pix showing the resolution of those ......  so i cant figure out how to attach a pix here either.... so here is a weblink to some pix showing the resolution is hi:
