Antenna /receiver strength
« on: November 27, 2005, 12:51:03 PM »

We purchased the wireless X10 - 3 camera b/w
system.  We have one camera at the front of
the house, one at the the back of the house
and the last on our shop at the back of the
yard.  Max distance from last camera to
receiver is 75 feet.  The other 2 are well
within that range.  We are only able to view
the one camera off the front of the house-
the one closest to the reciever.  Currently
the receiver is sitting in the front room of
our house.  What do we do to get ALL
camera's working together?  The only way to
get the image from the other two camera's is
if one us touches the reciever and holds
their right foot up approximately 2 feet
from the floor.  This will produce a crystal
clear picture, but we lose the visual of the
other 2 camera's.  And quite frankly neither
of us wants to stand in that position for
very long!  Can anyone help?  Do we just
need to admit defeat and purchase a WIRED
system?
Thanks for your input-we look forward to
hearing from you!

The antennas are directional. If you point
the receivers antenna back to the rear. Does
the other camera then become clear and the
original one go fuzzy?

One more thing. If you have a wirless
computer network or a 2.4 Ghz. cordless
phone. Try the cameras with them off. Both
can mess up a wireless camera.

you discovered the "stupid customer
attachment".  or some of us call it
the "abbu graib position".  it does wonders
for reception, but a bit embarassing.
