    Great Idea

    i put a link on my site bahamassecurity.com so that should help some. Should help to get your link on more and more web sites also, other forums, etc.
  2. Alarm Monitoring Company: Cameras: existing mixed brands, Color & BW, 10 Total System: 1 Kalatel Triplex 10 channel Multiplexer 1 Kalatel DSR-2000e 40GB 1 Kalatel RSM-1600 Phone Transmitter 1 CCTV Color Monitor (existing) All computers on network can view video playback, or they playback on the cctv monitor. 10 cameras on the 40GB at 5pps gets them 3-4 days with motion detection in highest video quality. At the other end (home), the owners can view sound and video via the phone line, on their Big Screen TV, a CCTV monitor, or any TV that is connected to the matching RSM-1600 in their home. Slower than Internet Video, but cheaper, simple to use, and nice that they can view it on thier TVs throughout the house. Audio is also transmitted, with a sligt delay though. Video quality is not as clear as with Internet Video, but good enough, and can be near real time by lowering the resolution (remember the video phone on CNN/MSNBC during the Iraw war). How its hooked up: RSM-1600 has only 3 channels on base product (it can be expanded with the addition of an expander). 1st channel is 10 channel multiplexed output using the monitor out. 2nd channel is a camera with audio (cheap walmart type camera), 3rd is a color 520TVL Sanyo Camera for the Central Station. These are looped from the multiplexer to the RSM-1600 using BNC-RCA jacks. RSM-1600 http://www.geindustrial.com/ge-interlogix/kalatel/prd_remote_video.html RSM-1600 - approx price $980 Retail per unit. The RSM-1600 master transceiver lets you access your video surveillance system from anywhere there's a phone line. Use 2 for video to TV/Video, or 1 for video to PC (free software).
  3. Pretty expensive, but some real good wireless day/night products. http://www.extremecctv.com/mecc.cfm

    Gas station system

    Hi, yes it uses motion detection recording, and it is using the highest resolution for the Kalatel DVRs, cant remember off hand, will have to check (im not on my computer right now, someone elses). No signal problems with the lights, except they give out alot of glare on the products which can make the picture not be as good as it could. The wires are run far from the lights in the drop ceiling, would have prefered in conduit but the customer preferred it run loose

    pc or all in one unit

    if you are s witching from tape then I imagine you are looking for maintenance free and ease of use. In that case id suggest an all in one such as the Kalatel StoreSafe, or another brand. They are just plug and play and ready to go. You rarely have to go back to them once they are on a Line conditioner and a UPS. Whatever advantages a PC board system has, the biggest drawback is that it is a PC and we all know how reliable windows is! )
