Surely if someone wants to jam your signal they probably could easily, rending this useless?

Not a hot deal, you can pick much better kits up in Costco for £29.99, this is typical Aldi cheap carp.

Anyone know any good deals for Network CCTV cameras? My dad is after one but he wants it so that he can go online and have a look at the house whilst he is away on business. Also means presumably that you can record straight to your PCs HDD

A network CCTV camera tends to mean an IP camera (otherwise a USB camera tends to be called a webcam :p), and almost all IP cameras just allow live viewing across the internet, but not recording to a PC HDD (even on the network).

You can probably get some open source program to save footage from the IP camera to your PC using some generic IP-camera-streaming protocol.

I use this http://www.zoneminder.com/ it supports just about any type of camera out there.
It also uses motion detection so you don't have endless hours of footage to look through.
I don't think you could pay for anything better and this is free.

Hi, is there no way this can be made to record to a pc at all then?

Not bad for an in shop price, but your can get better spec cameras for less money from a popular internet auction site. 2.4G Cameras with more IR Leds give a better quality image day and night.

To capture images on your PC I believe a TV card is needed.
As for software, theres free software available on the web.

If you are looking to buy one of these, remember they are not great at night, I have had a few camera and bought the wireless ones from a diy store and they are useless in the dark, if you are looking to buy a good cctv camera always make sure it is CCD not a cmos as I have setup a CCD Axis camera and it is good in the dark and no ir illumination.

A few camera do allow to record directly to hdd through use of the supplied software and displaying over the web, don't understand Calamitie saying this is not recording to the hdd, trust nw7100 with the supplied software and also third party software and the axis camera allows this.

The only real way to have the camera display a decent image in the dark is as close to 0 lux as possible.

Anyone know where i can get a colour camera from, would prefer a wireless one
dampflippers#14
I wonder if you could tell me how close it will focus? Will it focus at say 4 to 6 inches?
The reason is I'd like to try one as a nest box camera.
Does the camera have a power cable? How long is it?
How sharp and clear is the image?
Thanks for your help
