    I'm thinking this camera. u think it is overkill for getting the bus vandals from 50' away with low-medium light? could i find one cheaper?

    with this dvr box and other cameras

    http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product...se=&lang=en-US

    for the church. then i'll get the 9 channel one for me at hoem

    http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product...US&Sp=C&topnav=

    in the church i'll set up the expensive camera watching the parking lot, and then one camera in the sound tech room, one in the lobby, one in the basement.

    i'll use the ptz camera from the 4 channel package at my house. the question is, where would i want 9 cameras at my house?
    1. front door
    2. cul de sac
    3. back yard
    4. litter bugs on other side of fence
    5. main living space upstairs
    6. main living space down stairs
    7. side yard
    8. bat cave (where alfred, my HS computer is)
    9. future use?

    what are your thoughts?

    I'm going to have to say probably not, especially at night. You would need 400+ with powerfull IR for night vision

    You guys think 380 lines would be enough to get a definitive id on a face and license plate from 30' away or so, at night? someone jerks are cutting the filler hose on the church bus and trying to siphon gas out of it, i'm getting tire of replacing the hose, so i'm parking the bus at my house. my neighbors are tired of that. i'd like to catch the punks in the act and have the judge sentence them to community service, weeding the church garden or something, while I preach to them 8 hours a day (ok, dreaming a bit there).

    anyway, looking for a good wireless camera to do the trick, cost is issue, though, most of what i'm finding in my price range for the camera is 380 lines.

    OK, you got me going. I opened the box and started playing with it. I installed three of the cameras to see how it looks. Not bad if you ask me. I just hooked it up to a montor that we had sitting here.

    The question I have for you Neil is, in the instructions it said to install the hard drive. Did yours come installed? Mine was installed.

    not yet, i will take some pictures this week and post if you like, as mentioned i only have 4 of the intended 7 mounted right now and still have some work to do on nailing down the cables.

    I will get some night time pictures and put them on my website tomorrow

    I made them quite conspicuous intentionally. I want people to see that i have a camera system, hopefully that will work as an additional deterant.

    It came with a few stickers as well saying "under surveilance" so i stuck them at every door.

    I would love to see how the night ones come out.

    My wife wants me to hide the cameras as much as I can. I want people to see them like yours. People will think twice if the see them.

    I think what I'm going to do is set-up the DVR player first. Then hook up the cameras to make sure they are mounted just right. By chance did you do that.

    One other thing, do you have any pictures you took of where you mounted the cameras?

    forgot to mention. Mike was right, the record frame rate is fixed and has to be pre-defined.

    Since i will be using 7 camera total i will have 4 @10fps and the less used cameras will split the remaining 20fps at 6 or 7 each.

    The 10fps is fairly fluid and is not really choppy.
