    Advice between recommended cameras.

    I've got a speco intensifier installed at my firehouse. It's an interior cam and it's less than spectacular. They were retailing for around 160, he sold me one for 130. I prefer the cnb with the Monalisa over the speco intensifier. Jason

    Advice between recommended cameras.

    Did you contact the supplier in Edmonton that I pm'ed to you? The vcm24vf does not have built in infrared lighting. It uses the Monalisa chipset and has a removable infrared cut filter. It switches to black and white and the filter slides out of the way when the illumination drops past a certain point. You can used external IR illuminators for extra light at night. Pointing an IR illuminator out a window will simply reflect and make itself useless. If you must, mount the IR illuminator outside and the camera inside.

    Post your camera pictures here

    The following are from 3 different CNB VCM24VF: The following are from a COSTAR CDC2500H with a cloudy/scratched dome: The following are from an Dahua ESCEB650-1:

    Secuirty Installer Licensing??

    In my state, it costs 850 to register for a license to install or service "electronic security equipment". That covers the first two years. A 2 year renewal after that costs 500 dollars. These fees are used for extensive background investigations. Employees of the applicant company are also required to obtain a license if they will have "intimate knowledge" of a customers electronic security equipment, including location of equipment, design of system, location of wiring, passwords, etc. So if your local agency that does the licensing does more than rubber stamp it, it will weed out most of the riffraff.

    remote land with shed/garage

    I've got three of those on my house. Very nice cameras. It's the best bang for your buck analog in my opinion. Properly focused and placed should yield decent facial recognition shots. Definitely go for DSL or cable over Satellite if you want an offsite recording solution. If you go the dummy dvr route, you can probably get a 4ch for a hundred bucks or so. Don't forget dummy wiring too. Make em work to disconnect it so it makes them really think they have the brain. You could go one step further and use wired cameras. Split the signal and send to the decoy and the real one. Hide the junctions in an enclosure up high though.

    I don't think you're going to find a remote recording solution over a residential satellite connection. Video is a bandwidth hog and satellite connections are notoriously slow and suffer from high latency. With that being said. You could design an extremely secure bunker type setup for the dvr and maybe use wireless cameras so a would be thief couldn't simply follow the wires back to where the DVR is located. I would keep the distance for the wireless signal as short as possible. Also keep in mind anyone can scan frequencies and pickup your feed if it's not encrypted. Another option is a decoy dvr in plain site so they grab it thinking they are good to go. Just some thoughts.

    what are your thoughts on this idea?

    Have you tried using rain-x on the dome? To assist with the water beading and running away?
