    2 monitors, 1 camera??

    I would use the looping outputs on the back of the monitor if available. I have had termination issues with T connectors in the past.

    Good Wall Clock Camera Suggestions

    Have had good luck with the covert smoke detectors, you get more of birds eye view. You can capture the theft and identify of the thief all from one camera. I wouldn't worry about the wide angle lens or the resolution, chances are in an office enviornment everyone knows everyone and the perpetrator will be easily identified.

    PIR Cameras

    I need to install a functioning PIR camera. I have used GE (GBC) in the past but after researching I found these http://www.yoko-tech.com/product_4.php?parent_id=42&parent_id2=55&c_id=170&cc_id=55&from=3 The specs look pretty good, has anybody used these?

    Legal Woes -

    CSI and Las Vegas have given the public unrealistic views on CCTV. When clients want something outrageous they saw on TV, I tell them "Unfortunately our equipment does not have a Hollywood button"
  7. What kind of test monitors do you use? I use a tote vision and I'm not real pleased with it. Thinking about getting a ganz PSM-02.
  8. Yes, it protects against condensation and in cold weather prevents freezer burn...No dude i'm just messin around

    Best place to get these camera's.

    I think the only way to solve this is a steel cage match in Vegas. "Two men enter, one man leave."
  12. Or you can use these instead of T adapters http://www.channelplus.com/product_detail.php?productId=36

    Spider proof day / night switching cams ?

    Spiders are annoying, they also like to get inside motion detectors and cause false alarms.

    Casino project

    We have an AD 1024 matrix and we use all AD PTZ's. For cameras we mainly use panasonic but we also have Ganz, Sanyo, Ultrak and ARM in use. Covi cameras are great for detail, we tried several options, but only the Covi cameras could identify the pips and the suit of the cards from a 30 foot ceiling.

    cat5 - bnc???

    Tell him those cameras are garbage and they are not compatible with the DVR he purchased. I am not aware of any converters, if there are any it is not worth it to purchase them for such cheap cameras. He can afford a nice DVR but he can't afford decent cameras?

    I watched Oz the first season but then we downgraded to basic cable. Great show!! Six feet under was good too. I was refeering to American Idol in my first comment, not all the other shows that were mentioned.

    Saturdays install

    One time I had a rottweiler trap me in a pantry closet during an install. I saw him walking around, he stopped and stared at me and when we made eye contact he charged. I ran and barely beat him to the pantry door. Scared the hell out of me.

    vda recommendations?

    This is probably overkill for you but we use the Kalatel KTS-250-16 which is 16 in 64 out and rack mountable.
  24. I have to install some fixed cameras and PTZ's in a parking lot on light poles. They do not want to go wireless. The poles are roughly 6 inches in diameter and unfortunately do not have conduit in them to protect my wires. I think the wires will be too close to the power wire inside the poles and I am concerned of interfearance of running video parrallel with power. What is better to use to keep out the noise, coax or UTP? Anyone know of anything I can wrap the wires in to protect them? It is a pretty long run also, about 800ft I have used passive baluns in the past but not active, I heard good things about NVT. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks
