The basic ground rules for discussions on CCTV Forum are simple:

Use Common Sense.

Don't Break the Law.


Failure to use common sense resulting in impolite, disrespectful, unprofessional, or illegal behavior may result in your account being suspended immediately, or any other action solely at the discretion of forum administrators and/or moderators.


Members are permitted a maximum of one account per person, no exceptions.


Please do not use this forums resources to promote other forums/communities of any type. For example, don't use the PM or email system to send messages to members asking them to visit a site that is currently being censored by the forum.


Please do not post the same message in multiple forums. They will both be deleted.


Please do not post in any language other than English. It may be deleted.


Please do not try to defeat the forum's word censors - words/urls are censored/masked for a reason.


Since this is a Public forum, any replies of "PM Sent" or similar; may be edited or removed, since all members can not read the reply.


New members will not be able to send PM's or Emails via the forum due to a minimum post count restriction. Please participate on our forum by asking or answering questions and this functionality, along with others, will open up to you.



Advertisements and/or solicitations should only be conducted offline (email or PM's at invitation only). In other words, please do not conduct business in public forum posts. Any post of an obvious business nature will be removed by the moderators at our discretion. Please do not send mass PM's to the memberlist advertising your products or services. Repeated offenses will lead to banning without warning.


Also Retailers/Manufactures are not allowed to post their own urls in replies or direct members to their site(s).


Retailers' posts will be subject to stricter moderation standards than regular members.


Signatures are not for advertising. Please keep them a reasonable length and free of advertisements and images. Signatures are earned via post counts. Please do not fake one before you have earned the right to have one.


Affiliate links within signatures or posts are not permitted.



As a courtesy to our advertisers, please do not post links when recommending products; just post the recommended products name/model number etc.. Of course, we encourage a search of our advertisers sites first for any recommended products mentioned in threads


Please refrain from posting special prices available only to dealers or installers in our forums. When in doubt, post the MSRP.


In light of our policy of encouraging candid, open exchanges of views and the rapid distribution of information originating from many sources, CCTV Forum cannot determine the accuracy of information that may be posted to the Forums.


Opinions, advice and all other information expressed by participants in discussions are those of the author. You rely on such information at your own risk. Participants are urged to seek professional advice for specific, individual situations and not rely solely on advice or opinions given in the discussions.


That's all folks, get back to posting and reading
