What communicates with what?
« on: February 10, 2005, 10:18:50 AM »

I have 3 Anaconda wired cameras, 3 EagleEye
Motion Sensors, 1 TM751 Tranceiver, 1 UX23A
VCR Commander II, and 1 CR12A Remote. My
question is, which devices communicate
directly with the other devices? In other
words, does the remote communicate with the
tranceiver, or the addressable power
supplies for the cameras? Do the motion
sensors communicate with the tranceiver, or
the addressable power supplies for the
cameras? And, what does the VCR Commander II
communicate directly with? TIA

As an added note to my message, can 2 TM751
Tranceivers be used to relay a signal, ie.
to gain more distance than the 100 feet?

Eack TM751 will only send the data from any
RF remotes it can receive. They will not
resend data from another TM751 for more
distance.

Remote talks to the tranceiver. The
tranceiver sends an X10 line signal to the
addressable power supplies. Don't know the
VCR Commander II

Hi Joe,Just to add what Brian H said. The
transceiver sends X10 signals through your
house wireing, to your addressable power
supply . Try to keep on one circuit if
possible and no surge protectors or GFI's.
The signal will transfer from one circuit
to another but could be weaker, the longer
the wire run.
Your VCR commander ll receives it's
signal from the motion detector,which turns
on the cam, and then the commander sends a
IR signal to the VCR to record.Think of the
commander as a automatic remote,which must
be in line of sight with the VCR. When
motion stops the motion detector turns off
cam and tells commander to send stop signal
to VCR. VCR must be left powered on, all
the time, as commander does not turn it on
and off.
Hope this helps.   Dave
