In theory Yes. AHP is suppose to handle up
to 256 cams provided you don't use it for
anything else. If you can see all 12 cams at
the same time I'd say no! But you can jump
from one cam to another.

I think I'm missing something...since the
remotes (CR12A) work in banks of four, how
do you go to a fifth (or more) camera
without having to manually turn the last
one off (in the first bank)or adding macros?

Aparently AHP knows enough to turn the last
one off. I only have 2 cams but one is on
the first group of 4 and the other is on the
second group. eg: c4 and c5
and I have no problems switching with
iWitness. I fact I had to add them this way
because one is a wired cam and wouldn't turn
off if it was in the same group.

AHP does switch all five ok on mine too,
but the remote pad only turns off the
cameras in the individual group (1-4, 5-9).
(Need to have both manual and AHP control.)

How did you get a wired cam into AHP along
with wireless? Other switching hardware?

I wired it into a video sender so it still
transmits wireless sorry should have
mentioned that.
If I have AHP open I can switch cams with a
remote and it works.I did have a phase issue
that wouldn't alow it untill I fixed it
Maybe that is you prob. I used a tm751 to
bridge the phases, not the best solution but
it works!

I'll have to check further if it works for
you--signals seem to get around ok once I
added an amp/coupler some time ago.

Where did you get the xmitter(2.4gig I
assume since it works with your system)?
Spotted a color low-light camera, with IR
lights that come on automatically if light
is too low, for just $39 at Sam's Club.
Almost got it to try, but couldn't figure
how to get it into ahp cleanly (I've been
trying to monitor a baby crib since my
grandson was first born...I'm now on my 3
grandchild and still haven't got it right.
X10's low-light ain't low enough in my
house!)

I got the xmitter(2.4gig ) from x10 It came
with the resciever and my very first cam.
You can still get them but think you have to
get the sender & reciever together. They
have stereo sound as well. Check here:
