    Cam Layout

    As far as security around my house and garage, I've got a pretty good view of nearly everything. Obviously the angles are not exact, but it's a pretty good representation of the field of view. Think nearly all cameras are a 4mm lens, couple are 2mp and few are 3mp Hikvision.

    Really nothing too impressive, but impressive quality for 720p on a $75 dome camera from lightinthebox. This is one of the cameras I've previously mentioned to NEVER buy, it's crap, but it works, and I spent money on it, so I use it. seems out of my 19 cameras, on 2 systems, I always get a...

    Hikvision DS-2CD2432F-IW 3MP w/POE IP Camera fresh off the boat from china... excellent picture, frame rate, and quality seems ok... the problem is: No matter what settings I've tried on the day/night switch, the only way to show day vision (a color picture) is to select "day" mode... on...

    IP scanner to find what's on your network

    Very simple, small, easy to use stand-alone program... I've had this in my arsenal for a long time, and have used it several times... anyway, I've realized that not everyone has some of these cool little tools that can make life a bit more simple, so have decided to share it to anyone who may...

    Settings in DVR software and cameras

    Ok, I can't be the only one. I've managed to fumble through getting several cameras set up in BI, and have managed to tweak a lot of settings to attempt to make the systems run smoother, but some stuff may as well be written in Chinese because I don't know what it means... I'll start with one...

    Finally put a decent cam on my birdnest

    well, I'm on my third cam..1st was a 640x480 with the most junk lens ever... 2nd one was a nightmare to even get working, and when I put it up by the birdnest, things just didn't work out and the image/video was not worth sharing... But, this is a 1080P camera that probably isn't meant to view...

    Passive POE trick to save a buck

    one of my favorite tricks is to wire up the RJ45 with the blue and brown pairs...I leave them hanging out...Then, I grab the power supply for whatever device I'm powering, chop it in the middle, strip the wires, and splice them onto the blue (for positive) and brown (for negative) to send...
