Which Camera Should I Buy?
What's the difference between a
hardwired camera and a wireless camera?
A hardwired wired camera has a cable that goes from the camera to a TV
or VCR. The video signal is passed from the camera, through the cable,
and to your TV or VCR which allows you to see the picture. All wired
cameras must use RCA cable to connect the camera to the TV or VCR.
A wireless camera does not need an RCA cable connected from the camera
to the TV or VCR. The video signal is transmitted through the air to
the TV or VCR directly, or to a receiver. However, wireless cameras
still require power. You can apply power by either using batteries, or
by plugging the camera into a regular wall outlet.
Do I need to get cable with my
All wired cameras require RCA cable to connect your camera to a TV or
VCR. Cameras with a description that says wired for Plug and Play
Connection have two leads coming out from the camera. One of these
leads is for power. A power supply is provided to plug into a regular
wall outlet. The other lead is an RCA video connection to connect to
your TV or VCR. The video connection is a female connection and
additional RCA cable must be obtained to connect to your TV or VCR. If
the description says it comes with cable, then you only need additional
cable if the size specified is not enough.
Are the cameras difficult to set
Both the wired and the wireless cameras are very easy to set up. You do
not need any special knowledge or skills to set up and operate these
hidden cameras. Basically, all you do is apply power, either by
plugging it to a regular wall outlet or by using batteries.
For a wired camera, you plug the RCA cable into the camera and run the
cable to your TV or VCR. Follow your TV or VCR instruction manual for
viewing the video input.
For a wireless camera with receiver (900Mhz or 2.4Ghz), apply power
either by plugging it to a regular wall outlet or by using batteries.
The receiver plugs into a wall outlet as well or you can use a battery
pack. The receiver plugs into your TV or VCR the same as wired cameras.
Can I use my camcorder to record?
You can use a camcorder or any video device that has a video-in port
that will accept RCA cable. Depending on your input port, it may be
necessary for you get an RCA to BNC connection adapter. These are
easily obtainable at any Radio Shack for $2-$4.
Do the cameras come equipped
Covert use of video and audio together is reserved for law enforcement
personnel only. We do not carry any hidden cameras that have audio
capability. Audio is only available to law enforcement agencies due to
federal US law.
I have a 2.4GHz telephone
system, will that be a problem?
There are a number of possible problems. When the phone is picked up,
the picture may go out. You may not get any picture at all. There may
be a horizontal hold type problem with the picture. Problems may vary
because of all the telephone manufacturers and the different
telephones. If you have a 2.4GHz phone system or any other 2.4GHz
system in your home or office, please consider hard-wired, or replacing
your existing 2.4 appliance.
