Q&A:

joseph asked What’s the best budget wireless security system for a small shop?

I have a small 1100 sqft facility in which I do auto repair and have tools and valuables which I want to protect.

I’m not looking for a monthly subscription type!!!!!

I need a DIY security system. A keypad, one motion sensor, 2 door sensors and possibly a system that can alert me when there is trouble. I don’t have a land line for my shop phone because I use my cell. I have seen systems that can message or call you without a phone line.

A bonus would also to have a camera of some sort. Maybe ir or night vision.

And got the following answer:

There are places that offer DIY systems that can be installed. I have linked to an Access Control package and a standalone DVR security camera system that includes everything you need to install the equipment. The best thing is that ApexCCTV.com also offers free lifetime support for the products so if you need help installing it you can call them up. The best part is that neither package has a monthly fee. You monitor your own shop at any time via an internet browser or smartphone app.

You are correct in that most security camera systems can alert your smartphone but the system has to be attached to the internet to do so. This may be an issue in your shop if you don’t have an internet line you can run to the Security DVR. This is the same issue with a wireless system. They must be connected to a network in order to work so you must have a wireless network already installed for the Wi-Fi cameras to work. Wireless is also way more expensive whereas a wired system doesn’t need a network installed in order to work (unless you want to view the video remotely from your phone or internet).

If you have any more questions don’t hesitate to send me a PM.

Dragonfly asked What is the best home security camera?

I am looking for a system of 3 cameras, that can record directly onto the internet. I would like to have something that is good in the dark and also has a good resolution.

Does anyone have any suggestions, because I have no idea where to start. Thanks so much!

And got the following answer:

Hello

CNB cameras are not high end and are made in china,

Spyville just sell products made in china and are also quite low quality.

Most IR cameras do not give good images in the dark specially cameras under $200. Many companies claim good night vision but there are only a handful of brands who give night vision over 30 feet out doors. normally if a cameras is rated 150 feet of IR it will give you ok images at 30 feet at night and good images at about 20 if rated for 60 feet you might get 15 indoors and will be useless outdoors.

2 Great IR outdoor cameras
http://ascendentdvr.com/ascentseries2/52… ($95)
http://ascendentdvr.com/vistaseries2/vis… ($255.00)

Economical DVR’s
Two good economical DVRs I would recommend are Ascendent’s AVP-4120 DVR or Pelco’s DX-400. The AVP-4120 uses the latest H.264 codec to improve streaming and recording time, and will allow PCs and smart phones to remotely view and control your cameras. These are the DVRs I would recommend that are good quality and affordable from companies who stand behind there products.

Always buy DVR and security equipment from a good brand name manufacturer like Pleco, Bosch, Honeywell and Ascendent: http://www.ascendentgroup.com

Unfortunately many people buy very low end systems which have poor frame rate and bad image quality because they buy from Amazon, “spy stores” Lorex, Q-see, NCIX, new-egg, and other online retailers who sell cheap products for china there were never intended to be anything more then a nany cam and should never be used to provide security.

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.

The smaller the files size the more images are able to be sent, and the faster they can be processed improving both FPS and speed. File size is the heart of any DVR and goes far beyond just its streaming capabilities, as it also determines the recording storage time, how much you can back up at once, how fast it renders and searches video. The file size of a DVR impacts the performance of the DVR in just about every aspect from speed to longevity and is often the most important spec of any DVR.

If you are buying a DVR and streaming is a high priority I suggest you ask for a demo and connect to the DVR to make sure it is able to stream fast enough for your needs. Most DVRs say they have remote viewing but it is often too slow and laggy to be of any use especially if it is a standalone.

Just like any other consumer electronic in the end you get what you pay for. Most retailers and sellers make about a 40-80% profit margin, this is after costs like shipping and overhead. That means when you buy a product that costs $100.00 the manufacturer usually has only spent $30 to build it which simply means it’s not a good product and will probably have a working life of about 2 months. Cheap products are like disposable razors they are NOT designed to last for a long time and you will end up replacing them every 2 months.

DVRs need to be good quality as they run 24/7 (20X more than the average electronic device) and process anywhere from 30-480 frames per second which in a year is over 15 billion images, and a good DVR should last 3-5 years.

Again if you are going to buy no name products save money and get dummy cameras they are just as affective and you will be less disappointed.

Hope this Helps,

D Y asked how do i make my ir light invisible?

I recently bought a night vision monocular, and im planning on using it for paintball, and i just turned it on in my pitch black bathroom, and it works weel but there is a slight problem. The built in IR illuminator is like a bright red flashlight, it is clearly visible to the naked eye. i was wondering if there are IR flashlights flashlights that are INVISIBLE to the naked eye or if there are LEDs that i can make a flashlight head out of.

And got the following answer:

It is possible to use IR LED s to create some illumination, but does the built in illuminator have a way to turn it off? Another drawback to this plan is that the LED in the IR spectrum will only carry 20 feet at most, even in multiples. Also, most IR flashlights are designed to use up close to detect IR / UV reflective materials, not for distant illumination for night vision. Try it outside, without the illuminator active if possible, you may be surprised at what you can see. You may also be surprised how little the red eyed monstrosity shows outdoors at night, too.

Worse comes to worst, you have a couple of choices. Buy a better ( read that expensive! ) separate IR illuminator or sell what you have in favor of a passive infrared system. Passive meaning that it uses available IR and light to create a visual of objects at low illumination values.

mikemd21 asked I recently Had a Break in and would like to install quality cameras with night vision for around 300- Where?

Any links or anyone that knows where i could get a quality security system for 300 or less would be grately appreciated. thanks!

And got the following answer:

No where you cant get a good CCTV system for $300.00 you cant even get an ok one for that price.

A good IR camera will run about $300~800 per one (if you want to to see over 70 feet outdoors)

Not all CCTV equipment is created equal, in fact there are many options that offer varying levels of performance much like the automobile industry. In the world of DVRs you can buy the equivalent of a $1,000 golf cart and a $350,000 Ferrari and everything in between. Both have 4 wheels and windshield but that is where the similarities end, it’s under the hood that counts. And using the car analogy you would be getting a golf cart that need the engine replaced if you spend $300.

Just like any other consumer electronic in the end you get what you pay for. Most retailers and sellers make about a 40-80% profit margin, this is after costs like shipping and overhead. That means when you buy a product that costs $60.00 the manufacturer usually has only spent $30 to build it which simply means it’s not a good product and will probably have a working life of about 2 months. There is a reason these products are 1/10 of the price of good and reliable DVR brand names. The type of seller these products attract are online sellers (ebay) and will make profits margins as low as 2% which means they can’t afford to offer service or allow for RMAs (returns). Cheap products are like disposable razors they are NOT designed to last for a long time and you will end up replacing them every 2 months.

Now some products can be made cheaply like ipod cases, screen protectors, and other simple products with no moving parts or electronics. DVRs need to be good quality as they run 24/7 (20X more than the average electronic device) and process anywhere from 30-480 frames per second which in a year is over 15 billion images, and a good DVR should last 3-5 years.

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 and are one of the few products that can’t be made both well and cheaply. Cheap and inexpensive products like Q-see, Swan, Lorex, and other low grade DVR’s sold by Tiger Direct, Newegg, Sams Club, are not used by security professionals and should only be used to to see if the baby is sleeping and even they cost over $300 and don’t offer nightvision.. You mase well get a web cam and point it at the area you want to see.

Here are the websites of some good DVR and CCTV camera brands.

http://www.ascendentgroup.com (AVP-4120)
http://www.honeywell.com
http://www.pelco.com/ (DX-4000)
http://www.bosch.com

Link to a good IR camera:
http://dealer.ascendentgroup.com//dvr-ir-cameras/ap-101ir-550.html

Two good economical DVRs I would recommend are Ascendent’s AVP-4120 DVR or Pelco’s DX-400. They will allow you to view all your cameras instantly from anywhere in the world using either IE, or a client software. The AVP-4120 uses the latest H.264 codec to improve streaming and recording time, and will allow PCs and Apple computers to remotely view cameras. These are the DVRs I would recommend that are good quality and affordable.

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
http://dealer.ascendentgroup.com//dvr-ir…

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.

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.
