    Need Help on Grounding Issues?

    Lightning Rod and surge protect your video and power lines on both sides of equiptment
  2. LAN provides you with more bandwidth so the video quality is better and faster. On WAN you are limited to your upload speed for your ISP so your bandwidth is way slower so image quality and FPS is degraded to make up for it.

    Bullet Camera (non IR)--9V or 12?

    If the camera is undervolted it will lower the life of the camera since it will pull more current to compensate for the lower voltage. Ohms Law I repair cameras and see a lot of cameras go bad quickly from power supplies going bad and only outputs like 10 vdc or lower. IR Cams are the ones that are affected most by the higher current draw.

    worth it to repair cameras?

    Tell them that the dealer you bought it from went out of business. People say that to us all the time.

    cat 6 cable usin

    Yes you can use for power too but you might want to double up 2 pairs for the power. You can also use that leftover pair for audio.
  9. Do the lines show up on a test monitor?

    Help please HDD ERROR

    Hard Drive might not be compatible with your DVR.

    Cameras won't switch to BW mode

    Try changing your power supply. It seems like when the IR's come on then the camera would be pulling too much current for the defective power supply.

    Swann DVR4 no HDD recognised

    Some DVR's only accept certain brands of hard drive only. Or maybe your hard drive is on cable select. Adjust the jumper pins to master.
  13. Production in USA is too expensive and with competition all around then there is really no point since the quality is pretty much the same. The CCD chips are basically manufactured overseas anyways so it all comes down to assembling the camera. And assembling the camera in China or US there is not much difference.
  14. Everything comes from china or korea. The difference is if you buy directly from overseas then you get cheaper prices but literally no support or warranty.
  15. 0.05 Lux should be fine in a parking structure

    Are these the Gel Cell types of battery that you guys are talking about? I am testing out a SLA (Sealed Lead Acid) Type right now.

  20. Maybe your dome cover is dirty.
  21. Maybe your camera has CCD Sun Damage. Hold up a piece of white paper. If you see pink streaks or blotches than your non Auto-Iris camera has been outside too long.

    Pole mounting bracket help, please

    You can use something like this where it has adjustable straps for 2"-4" poles. It's fairly cheap.
