Wireless
« on: October 29, 2004, 05:02:15 AM »

I am trying to hook up a wireless system.
What I have done is I have one camera that I
hooked coax to then ran it to the end of the
building where i have a wireless transmiter.
Then fifty feet away I put a Reciever then
ran coax to the main security location so
that the officer could view both buildings.
But for some reason I am not getting a
picture.

Overview:  We need to install surveillance
cameras in a wooded area which will assist
in monitoring and reporting illegal hunting
activities.  Date time capture on camera
picture frames would be important.  As with
bank surveillance, it may not be possible

Hi, Bill.
As the saying goes...,"Dude!"
I'm not certain that X-10 is going to be
able to help you with this project. I really
believe I would cancel-out the wireless
cameras, at the least, because I really
don't believe you're going to get
appreciable results from that particular
equipment. I believe I would go with the low-
light wired cameras.
With trees so plentiful in a forest, I
believe I would make use of trees for camera
towers, as opposed to erecting specialty
towers for the purpose. X-10 says you can't
use the Ninja Pan & Tilt base with the wired
cameras, but I believe that, if you pay-out
enough slack in the cable, you can. One
thing to note, though, is that the Ninja Pan
& Tilt base has to be protected from direct
weather, so it needs a little hood above it,
or some people have made 'skirts' that
attach to the Ninja and provides protection.
I might recommend burrying an AC powerline
out into the woods and installing large,
water-proof connection boxes every 100-150
feet. This will give you plenty of options
that you may need, later.
You need to find-out if the Ninja pan & tilt
base receives it's commands to pan and tilt
through the power line, or wirelessly. If
they do it by X-10 powerline signals, then
you'll need to install boosters along the
main line to boost the X-10 powerline
signal. That's what the water-proof boxes
are for. Also, you'll need inline amplifiers
for the video signal, here and there, and
these can be put in these boxes. I would
maybe locate this stuff along trails that
deer and other animals make use of.
