Q&A:

kayla_b_323 asked What’s the best security camera system I can get for my backyard without spending more than $500?

I’ve read that X10 cameras are not good in the dark, and that most wireless cameras can be hijacked by scanners, so other people might actually be watching you while you enjoy your yard! Protection One just gave me an estimate of $3,000 for 4 cameras! Any suggestions? I’m trying to catch vandals.

And got the following answer:

Hello

$500.00 is low and $3000 is high I would go with a budget $1500.00 depending if you want outdoor or indoor cameras.

if you need outdoor cameras make sure the camera is rated for the temperature variance your region is.

Not all CCTV equipment is created equal, in fact there are many options that offer varying performance much like the automobile industry. In the world of CCTV you can find the equivalent of a $2,000 golf cart and a $350,000 Ferrari and everything in between. Both have 4 wheels but that’s 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. 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. 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 good 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 and camera require 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, X10, Swan, Lorex, and other low grade DVR’s and cameras sold by Tiger Direct, Newegg, radio shack Sams Club, are not used by any security professional and should only be used by hobbyists.

To be honest Swan sells complete Garbage and is not used by anyone who has worked with CCTV or security products. I know other manufactures who used the same product as them and they felt they wee such poor quality they offered money back and replaced them at there cost. They are poor quality especially for IR cameras, due to low quality material, low S/N ratio, and c grade CCD image chips. I don’t know why “TheMan” recommended swan clearly he has no experience with CCTV products.

If you are only going to spend 70$ on cameras then you should buy 15 dummy cameras they will be just as effective and cheaper hen swan cameras.

Also as far as night vision or IR cameras go most do not give good images in the dark. 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.

Some good CCTV brands that I recommend are Bosch, Pelco, Honeywell and Ascendent.

Economical DVR’s
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 from companies who stand behind there products.

Again if you are going to buy Swan products save money and get dummy cameras they are just as affective and you will be less disappointed.

Hope this Helps,

Mama of 2 asked What security camera would be work the best?

I am looking for a security camera that records all of the time. I don’t know what would be best for that to go to the internet or dvd. I have no knowledge at all on these. Someone please help me.

And got the following answer:

all depends on how much money you want to spend, the most expensive route is to get a dedicated DVR and camera package from Swann or Lorex, anywhere from $600 on up, you could also get IP security cams from Wilife and Swann. the cheapest option is to get a DVR pci card and convert an obsolete PC to a DVR. I use a Swann DVR PC guard card with a Swann bullet cam and a lorex BW all weather cam. the card is installed on an old athlon xp 2500 computer with a wireless card up in my attic, i acces via web. the swann card has good clear instructions on how to do this.

lorex model SG6184S
I need to record what is being view from my security camara / vcr, tv is not being recorded to my vcr player . please help

And got the following answer:

Attach your AV cables from the camera into the VCR A/V INPUT (INPUT 1 for example). Now on your VCR remote, select INPUT 1 on your VCR.
If you hook your cable to the VCR “IN FROM ANT” then connect another cable “OUT TO TV” to your tv. Unless you have a cable box or sat. receiver you can hook to A/V 2 on the VCR.
You may also want to hook the VCR A/V OUT to your tv INPUT 1 as well.
Now you can make your selections from your camera to cable by changing the INPUT on your VCR remote. Either AV 1 or 2 or to your cable channels being sure to leave the tv on the same channel or input.
Good luck, I hope this doesn’t sound too confusing!
