    24v power supply question

    That unit supplies a total of 5 A. So with all 16 channels the load cannot total more than 5A. But you can have 1.1A max on one channel but all other channels must add up to 3.9A max.

    Need help with ranch style home cctv system

    Just remember that you will get what you pay for.
  11. Never run it parallel within a couple feet of high voltage. If you somehow have to cross the high voltage lines, make sure it is at a 90 degree angle.

    cut the 12volt plug

    Use a pigtail adapter because cutting wires will void warranty.
  13. Just buy a zoom camera only then and buy a weatherproof external housing. Its not worth it to waste time building an external housing. It will cost more in the end. You will have to buy the heating elements, fan, terminal connector blocks and temperature control circuits.

    Problem with geovision and sony hq1 cameras

  17. I've seen this sometimes when I'm fixing cameras at camera company manufacturer i work for . To test if its the lens then pull the Iris plug from the back then if you see a completely black screen then your lens is ok and your camera's iris control is broken. If you see a image then still then it would be your lens would be defective.

    cctv for convenient store

    Go with a 8 channel 240 fps standalone that is stackable. Trust me, you dont wanna deal with driver issues and all the other stuff that comes with a computer based system. Plus if its stackable then it will be very scalable for the future.

    the way to solve the losing natural color

    Yes you need ones with the ICR. If not then the filter in front of the CCD module will be sensitive the the IR in the day time and the colors wont look right.
