Cameras & New Construction
« on: July 16, 2005, 04:50:45 PM »

What is the best way to setup cameras on a
new house so that I can view on any TV in
the house.  Is there a way to have it
distributed throughout the house and have
one recirding device? I plan on using wired
cams

If you are using wired cameras, then you
will need special hardware to connect them
all to, that will let you select which one
to monitor.  Some of these have recording
capabilities.

Wireless is much more flexible and easier
to install and of course considerably
cheaper.  And the added bonus is that it is
portable when moving.

Steve

I take it that you have wireless cams. Do
you like them or have any problems?

I have over 10 cameras.  There are low
light which operate in lower light
conditions (at night with a lamp).  There
is a Floodcam, (which hs no mic) there are
wide angle, and there are normal angle.
All but the Floodcam can be mounted on the
Ninja base if you need to move the camera.

You can set it so that motion activates
each different cam, which I have done, so
if someone walks around the house, the
lights go on in each zone with the motion,
and it switches to that camera.  The Ninjas
can be set to sweep whatever area you
program.

Every TV set and PC that has a receiver can
view the images.  You can record the images
and have stills e-mailed anywhere.  Or you
can monitor from anywhere on the 'net.  You
can move cameras and switch on lights.

I would recommend getting AHP (Active Home
Pro) if you have a PC.  This will let you
program all the lights and create macros on
your PC.

If you buy the packages you can get lots of
software thrown in for free ... read up on
their website and let me know if you have
any questions ...
