Analogue cameras are very easy to use and install. In fact they are virtually plug in and play technology. See diagram below:
All you do is connect the camera to an AV cable, red to red, white to white and yellow to yellow. On the viewing end, all you have to do is connect the yellow and white connectors to your TV. Plug in the 12v power supply at the TV end into the red connector. The power travels down the camera to the camera and the video and audio travels back through the cable to the TV.
Differences between wired and wireless cameras
Wired cameras run 12v, video and audio through one cable to your camera. It send 12v down and video and audio back through the composite AV cable.
Wireless cameras need power at the camera end and transmit the video and audio wirelessly to a receiver in the house.
How to decide?
Whether to go wired or wireless is always tricky. What you need to ask yourself is the following:
- Have you got outdoor power?
- If yes, then wireless is an option. If no, you may need to consider wired.
- If no, then you may need to get power to it or run off battery or solar.
- Are you planning to view the camera far away ie through many walls?
- If yes, then you may consider wired or digital wireless
- If no, then either option is open to you
- Do you want to be able to turn the camera on or off?
- If yes, then go for wired.
- If not fussed, then go for wireless
How do I focus the camera?
Unfortunately, these cameras are fixed focussed
Is it compatible with my cable?
We would always recommend using our cables as they have been tested and work well with our cameras. This depends on your cable. Most composite cables are ok as they carry power (12v) to the camera and send video and audio back down the same cable. The connectors are standard RCA jacks and the power socket is 5.5mm outer 2.1mm inner.
This is a wired camera, do you have wireless one?
All cameras tend to be wired, but then get converted by using a separate transmitter.
Can I use my own power supply?
We would always recommend using our power supplies as they are built to the latest standards and specifications. Power supplies come in various voltages and amperages. It is always important to use the correct power supply.
Can you see the LED’s, will they effect the animals?
The camera produces a very dull glow. It is hard for you to see and possess no threat to birds and animals.
What do I do with the cable and connectors?
When the connectors are fitted to the camera, ideally they should be enclosed to protect from the elements.
Can you turn off the audio?
No there is no audio, but you can fit external audio with an external mic.
Can I connect the camera to a computer?
The camera is AV or TV ready. In order to connect to a computer or network (tablet, phone). You can either use a:
- USB device to digitise the signal into a computer
- IP convertor – This converts the signal into a digital signal by connecting the camera to your router. Any device in your network will be able to see and use the camera.
