P.S. randy said wallWART not wallMART.I was thinking the same thing as I walked past Walmart. May check and see what they have. Would prefer to run at least 2 off of one power supply. That gets me going. It covers the 2 most important areas and gives my SD 59 ptz camera more coverage.
Yea the 171 is expensive, there are a number of other brands too. The 171 is dual PIR + microwave meaning 2 PIR sensors have to trip to trigger it in addition to the microwave sensor and a wider field of view. Optex maxes some really expensive ones designed for ptz cameras that are irrelevant to a residential application.I understood what he said. Walmart is about the only thing we have in our small town to get anything from. Was hoping to find something suitable. That converter is going up in the camera to power the mic. The LC-171 is pricey. Wow. I think 3 of the 151's could cover 3 sides of the most concerning sides.
The power adapter I just linked is probably a better choice, I'd cancel the extra 24vac to 12vdc supplies.I ordered 2 more of those 24vac to 12vdc converters and 2 more LC-151's. According to the site they cover same distance.
confused. what company are you talking to? What gets "sluggish"?Rep from the company says to run them at 13.6 and that when you get down to 12v things get sluggish. He definitely recommends the pyramid device.
