Night Vision Goggles (DEMON SYSTEM) DIY

I made some IR goggles using A bunch of IR LEDs and a digital camera.


Black Bird asked How do I start driving in California(16)?

What are the steps I have to take in order?Cost?Recommendations?

And got the following answer:

First you have to obtain your DRIVING PERMIT.

To do so, you have to start off by taking a driver’s education course. You can do this in a classroom or online. I suggest doing it online as it is faster, cheaper, and more convenient. Just Google “online California driver’s education” and a bunch of schools will come up. Their prices vary from $30 to $80. Just MAKE SURE the company you’ll be working with for driver’s education is legit and certified by the California DMV.

After completing driver’s education, you’ll receive a certificate of completion of driver’s education from the company you took your course in. Then, you have to go to your local driving school and from them, obtain a certificate of enrollment in driver’s training from them as proof that you are enrolled in a driver’s training program and will take driving lessons with them after obtaining your permit.

With these two certificates, you can then head to the DMV, fill out a DL 44 form with your parents’ signatures, verify your identity (with legal document, ie. birth certificate, passport, etc.), provide your social security number, pay the applicable $28 fee, take your picture and thumbprint, take a vision test, and take a written test. You have 3 chances to take the written test. Once you pass the written multiple choice test, you’ll be issued your driving permit valid for 12 months.

After obtaining your driving permit, you can then go back to the local driving school you got your certificate of enrollment in driver’s training and start your behind-the-wheel driving lessons. Their rates vary but average to about $100 or more for 2 hours of lessons. You have to take at least 6 hours of driving lessons with a professional driving instructor. After those 6 hours, your driving instructor will give you a certificate of completion of driver’s training that you’ll need to obtain your license later on.

In addition to the 6 hours or driver’s training with an instructor, you must also hold your driving permit for at least 6 months, and have at least 50 hours of driving practice (10 hours of which are at night) with a CA licensed adult 25 years old or older (ie. parent)

With these 3 requirements, you’ll be then allowed to make an appointment and take your behind-the-wheel driving test at the DMV. You have 3 chances to take the test.

Billy asked Where can I buy a wireless security camera system for exterior use?

I am interested in buying a wireless security camera system but I don’t know where I can find one. It’s not something I can just find at walmart. Any help is greatly appreciated.

And got the following answer:

WOW bad avice

You can take your advice from people who Google or a security professional who specializes in CCTV.

Peter Brissette: there is nothing new about the products on your website in fact there are many misleading statements. many offer 3G and IE connection.

On your website you claim:
4GB Micro SD Card for video storage (7 to 10 days)

Truth: a high resolution camera with the smallest file size will use over 15GB-30GB a day (with 40% motion) a 4GB card will give you hours not days.

There is nothing new about the products you offer they are lower then the average product out there.
There good for nany cameras but not for a security system.

the products you sell (except for PTZ) only fixed cameras which will almost never work as you cant adjust the view.

there is nothing bad about your products but they are not high end please don’t claim them to be.
They should mainly be used for nany cameras not for people who are interested in security (I don’t think you even have watermark so images wont hold up in court though cant confirm as your website has very little information and even less specs.)

Hello sorry about that

You don’t want to record 24 hours a day you want to record on motion so if there is no moment you don’t records this will increase your storage a and decrease the amount of video you need to look for.

Very few cameras offer true day night performance mainly companies claim but rarely deliver.

For night operation you need IR cameras or very good lighting I suggest the latter.

You want to stick with a brand for day night cameras such as Bosch, Ascendent, Pelco and honeywell

A good outdoor Camera will have

High resolution (520TVL or higher)
Good signal to noise ratio (S/N 49DB or 50DB)
A true Sony CCD (not Chinese knockoff)
Rugged enclosure to handle vandals and environments
At least IP 66 and a suitable temperature rating for you region
IR LED’s to see in pitch dark: active IR rating not projected IR as projected IR has no coloration with how far the camera can see.
2 or 3 different sized LED;s 1 size LED one type of illumination means you either wont get distance or wide angle and you want both.

I would go with the VIS-56IR-2910…

this camera will give you 110 feet of clear vision in complete darkness and great images by day its the on I recommend for budget customer who need outdoor IR camera.

Cameras that have high resolution, and great signal to noise ratio can reducing file size on DVR’s up to 50% and offer better images.

Low budget Economical
Economical Infrared Bullet Camera
see 25 feet outdoors
Fixed 3.6mm lens
35~-25C IP 66
MSRP $110.00…

Cheap option would never suggest a camera lower then this one
(still much higher quality then Costco, Lorex, Swann, Qsee, and other no name products imported from china)

Infrared Bullet Camera
see 25 feet outdoors
Fixed 3.6mm lens
35~-25C IP 66
MSRP $75.00

here is a write up I did on CCTV a while ago hope it helps

Not all DVRs are created equal, in fact there are many options that offer varying performance much like the automobile industry. In the world of DVRs you can find the equivalent of a $10,000 Kia and a $350,000 Ferrari and everything in between. Both have 4 wheels and windshield but that where the similarities end, it’s under the hood that counts. Just like any other consumer electronic in the end you get what you pay for.

I suggest you buy a PC based DVR has they have more processing power and normally have a much smaller file size and offer more features then Standalone DVR’s. I know many people buy a cheap standalone DVR, only to upgrade to a PC based in 6 months especially when they are using it to manage a store remotely. Also PC based allows you to record up to 64 cameras where a standalone will have a limit of 16.

Many people have the misconception that a PC-Based DVR is simply an off-the-shelf PC with video capture (encoder) cards, display (decoder) cards and some generic OEM software. A true DVR requires years of research and development to facilitate the seamless integration of both the hardware and software. DVRs are highly complex systems that must run 24/7, processing millions of images per day. This makes consumer-level hardware inadequate for DVRs which is why Ascendent uses custom-built PCs with performance-level hardware.

My personal favorite DVR is Ascendent X4 series: Ascendent’s Tri-Fusion Hybrid Platform allows for the creation of a true hybrid surveillance system by utilizing the advantages of Analog, Megapixel, and IP technologies for unparalleled customization and expandability. I am working on government projects and use Ascendent cameras and DVR because the offer superior performance and cost less then comparable brands like bosh, Honeywell and pelco.

The X4 also uses the latest H.

bobseditsuite asked What’s the best way to set up a home exterior security camera system?

I want to put up a camera (with night vision) on the front of my house, pointed at the road to record nighttime activities.

I want to record the video onto my computer.

I have several questions:

1. What’s an effective and cheap way to do this?

2. What kind of camera should I look for? I’m thinking possibly using a standard Logitech webcam. Good idea?

3. What software do I use to receive the video & record it?

Thanks in advance.

And got the following answer:

Effective… get a decent quality video camera. Cheap, try using a webcam (quality of picture leaves much to be desired).

Best suggestion is to talk to a local electronics store. They will know how to set it up and best hardware to use.

Logitech webcam no good at handling moving pictures. Frame rates way too slow.

You might also want to look for issues of Canadian Security Magazine. Always good suggestions in there for home & business security at semi-affordable prices.

When you get the cam, it will supply you with a very basic vid record software. Try going to google ask looking up video recording software…

spitfire1900 asked Does the Pinnacle Dazzle let me view live feed video in full screen on my computer?

I am currently looking towards video editing solutions, but I am also looking for ways to turn m PC into a television for external media devices.

So can the Pinnacle Dazzle provide live feed content to my PC from things like the Xbox 360 in full screen mode without having to be recording at the same time?

And got the following answer:

Nope, I am currently trying to that same exact thing. I just happen to have a dazzle I use for live broadcasting to the web for concerts and such.

During my downtime I would like to be able to use it to to play xbox on my laptop. So far there has been a couple of choices and none of them have helped me cause I am using 64 bit Vista.

If you are using 32 bit xp I have your answer. There is a tv tuner software available on that is free and allows you to do that very same thing on 1080p setting. I should leave you hanging cause I still haven’t found my answer. But will get you the exact software you need.

Future reference; if that links goes dead just google, Dscaler, it is a tuner software and it is open source. I am not affiliated with any of these companies listed here accept and if our website starts to help with things like this on a regular basis I will quit, lol….I would rather pownz you than help you…

There is a real simple solution that is cheaper than buying a dazzle for your puter. If you are just trying to connect your xbox to a monitor go to the gamers store and by the adapter to connect your xbox to a monitor. It is only 20 bucks and the dazzle starts at 50 bucks.

The quality will be the same if not better. The only way to get get real 1080p on a monitor w/o latency will be to spend 550 bucks on a gamerz Monitor and if you are spending that kinda money on hardware you will not be surfing for these small answers. BTW a good gamers monitor is 120hz, 2ms, 3000:1, 24inch. Find those in a monitor of the cheapest price and you are set. Anything more and it is a gimic. I know you want the 40 inch monitor but if you go bigger you will need a higher ratio than 3000:1.

No, flat screen tv’s are not better than monitors cause they have 50000:1. They are just bigger so they need a higher number. Lcd beats Plasma everytime and monitors beat them both. Take my well spent cash’s word for it. You will not be able to beat the FPS on a monitor. That is the truth.

5ms is all you really need but 2ms is rapidly available for some reason. If you can truly tell the difference then you need to register as a mutant for freakish vision.

3000:1 on a 24in monitor is an amazing color just make sure they are not bullsh*tting you. Typically this is where they lie.

1080p is better than 1080i and 780 is the lowest. I’ll get that out of the way too.

Alas I have a laptop and I need the dazzle to work. So I will continue looking for my solution and the odds are good I will not find this thread again. So if you would like to stay updated visit me at and post a request for tech there in our blog and maybee ill see it. Better yet Register with the site, I am the admin. Once registered you can IM or email me. My name is Ron.

last note; if you do decide to go LCD TV for GAMING then the matte finish is your only choice. If you wanna watch your little girly movies then get the glossy crap. Personally I do not like to see reflections of lamps on my end tables while I am watching “On Golden Pond” but your grown and prolly prefer “Fried Green Tomatoes” after “Operah Late night” cause that is the only time you can watch a gloss tv is from the comfort of your cave.

If you happen to get powned by FragginRite on Gears of War 2, don’t feel bad I am just better than you. Itsa spider Biatch…….

How to find someone’s heart rate from a distance-10 points, 5 Stars?
Preferably something cheaper or an easy DIU, it would be a cool gadget. At least 5 feet please. Thanks, 5 stars 10 points. Also if you know a way to make night vision googles/flashlights with just home materials that would be great, anything that enables you to see in the dark.
