    Default Outdoor securitycameras

    John, you posted on Chuck's forum (LOR) that you bought security camera related stuff from https://www.scdlink.com/. Which model did you buy and why? I'm not up on the different resolutions yet.

    I'm thinking it might be time for a couple cameras and motion activated lights.

    Thanks,
    Al

    They don't carry the particular models I bought anymore, like everything else, mfg introduce new models and discontine models.

    I look for 400 + lines of resolution, and the smallest lux. I'm very partial to the day/night cameras with built-in infared illuminators.

    Another source I use for a lot of my home automation equipment is http://www.automatedoutlet.com/Home/...ras/ECZ230-N-4 is just one example of what I look for

    Automated outlet has excellent customer service

    Most of my cameras are on pan/tilt mounts and feed into a sequencer which feeds a video transmitter on UHF channel 19. Cheap 9" to 13" color TVs around the house serve as monitors in almost every room

    I can also view a live feed of mine over the internet, by logging into the home automation server. This server also automatically starts recording to one of its hard drives only when motion is detected in the vicinity of one of the cameras, otherwise no recording is being done.

    Al, I've installed several cameras. If you want good night vision then buy a very low LUX camera. Stay away from cameras with Infrared emitters, they have limited area coverage. Here is a link to a site I have dealt with in the past. http://cctvdirectbuy.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59&products _id=284

    Thanks, the link sort of worked but I found the site and cameras that you were speaking of build a couple Mighty Minis with infrared LEDs.
