Jim, I think he's referring to the fact that the date is off on mine. Mine is not motion sensor. Continuous loop.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Yeah, well, if I had thought of THAT, I could have come up with an answer that actually applied.

Any updates to this thread? I'm about ready to pull the trigger on a system at Costco, but wanted to hear your review on here.

Thanks,
Dylan

I think I'll roll the dice on the fact that no one is going to want to look at a 24hr loop of my driveway and/or sideyard. I keep my gold bars stored off site, as well and my sinister experiments are kept in the basement.

It means that someone found serious vulnerability and not only can they get into the DVR, they can see the IP address, user name/password, gateway address and with a few educated guesses, would be able to install keystroke logger/virus or gain control of any computers in the network.

And again, why would anyone want to do that looking at Dylan's (Or my) backyard and driveway? I understand it is different if you are surveying something with more value.

I'm going to do some cameras at the house I'm building. I have limited experience with cameras, but my brother in law (how's that Pete???) works for a higher end security company (they do gillette stadium and many other big clients) is going to give me some suggestions. I'll report back when I figure out what I'm doing

Well, they could watch for everyone to leave and go to the house and do a bit of "shopping".

If the budget isn't large, pass on IP-based cameras, but run Cat5e to each camera location instead of RG59/18-2 cable- baluns can be used for the video feed and power can be run on the other pairs. If you decide to change to IP later, it's usually a matter of putting an RJ45 on the end and plugging it in. At the head end, a PoE (Power over Ethernet) adapter would feed the cameras. Some cameras have RS485 control- one pair of wires connects to the cameras that have this and to a specific pair of terminals on the DVR and this allows camera setup changes to be made without going to the camera, itself.

Speaking of power, 24VAC is the way to go. The line loss from using a DC power supply shortens camera life and causes problems with ground loops. If a camera that uses DC happens to be the best choice for one or two locations, an AC-DC converter can be used at the camera location (never at the head end unless it's very close to the camera that needs it).

I have been looking at camera security king equipment. They have the 4 channel and the 8 channel system. Does anyone have any opinion on them? I went and looked at the swan system at frys the other day. It sure seemed cheaply made.

Anyone have any good feedback on any of their systems?
