CCTV Help required
Need some help setting up a basic CCTV system, I have no knowledge of it really!
Anyway… It wants to be cheap, yet effective. Probably 2 or 3 cameras in a single location. If it makes it easier, I have a spare PC I could use (Dual Core Processor, Windows XP) to run it.
So what would you suggest?Posted 4 years agobuzz1024Member
Maplins is the place to go – i got a system with 2 cameras, Hard disk recorder with 4 camera capability – it can also be set up to be accessible via phone or t’interweb. The cameras are colour and go to b/w at night with i/r. i think from memory it was around £150Posted 4 years ago
I just have it wired in to the tv so I can flick channels to see whats going on outside.dannybgoodeSubscriber
I have myself a pair of these:
And use a piece of software called Vitamin D – have to pay for a 2 camera version but it is excellent.
The cameras themselves are surprisingly good. A bit fiddly to set up but the night vision in particular is really quite acceptable – people are easily recognisable and identifiable 10 or so meters away.
Need a good wi-fi connection, I bought a range extender specifically to have these hooked in to.
Seem to be pretty reliable.

MrNutt, click the following…
It is for a business indeed, but won’t be very extensive, and I will put the signs up.
z1ppy, can’t see that info on ton’s profile! I thought he was a scrap metal merchant?!?! 😕
Any more info anyone? Was hoping it would be as simple as buying a couple of glorified webcams (with night vision too) and installing a piece of software on a PC (and possibly installing a bigger HDD). Can this be the case?Posted 4 years ago
