    Covert Camera within an outside light

    Something like this? https://www.getkuna.com/ I've never used one, so I can't give you any feedback. My wife really liked the idea. I saw this video on my facebook feed back when it happened. https://www.facebook.com/getkuna/videos/vb.1530457887167386/1701715056708334/?type=2&theater

    Build yourself or buy from Costco?

    I've bought two systems from Costco. The first was a Q-See system that came with 2mp cameras. I used the system for about 1 year before it started having problems with the nvr. I spent 3 weeks going back and forth (emails) with Q-See tech support. After Q-See not figuring out what the problem was, Costco said to just bring the system back. I took back in the nvr with the 4 cameras, minus the cables. I was given a full refund no questions asked. I then turned around and bought a new Swann system that had the newer 3mp cameras. I'm glad that Costco was easy to deal with!

    is that all?

    Don't feel bad. We've all been there. We all start out with something small and then expand or just start from scratch now that you've got your feet wet. Even by jumping up to 2MP will make a world of difference!
  6. Hello and Welcome! Actually no, I never figured out the answer. So thanks for posting the answer now. It works! This whole time I had been using Safari. My upload speed at home is roughly about 3mbps, so I really only view one camera in main-stream mode before it starts to slow down and freeze up. That's great though, thanks!

    Swann HD Camera very blocky

    Its outside on the roof top pointing down towards the road. There is a street light above the tree on the right. Could that cause problems with the IR? Nope, that wouldn't cause problems with the IR. Have you prayed with the camera settings? Try to default them to see if it changes anything.

    Swann HD Camera very blocky

    Is it mounted on the outside of your house or are you shooting thru a window?
  10. Thanks, Guys! I'll check it out!
  11. What is something like this called? Where could you get something like this? I'm thinking of adding a camera for license plate recognition out along my front yard. Thinking of all the different options I would have.
  12. It's gonna be up to you. Do you want to make a bigger hole or a smaller hole? It's pretty easy to crimp on a connector. You're just going to have to practice a few times. Look at Monoprice.com for some tools, they aren't very expensive. Something new for you to learn.

    cat6 vs cat5

    How far is your longest run going to be?
  14. On the Dahua cameras connected to the Swann nvr? No. I don't really need MD in those areas anyways. Plus I have connected 2 PIR motion detectors in the areas that I need true motion detection. I also record 24/7
  15. I'm pretty sure that I've read that before. I have 2 dahua cameras connected to my Swann NVR. It's not plug and play but I was able to figure it out. So I don't see why not.
