Hmmm. I wonder if this will work with my hp micro server?

Hmmm. I wonder if this will work with my hp micro server?

"AV output" suggests to me that it plugs directly into the phono AV input of a TV, so not an IP camera. Suppose if your microserver has a videocard with AV input then it could be used. Happy to stand corrected if my assumptions are incorrect.

I'm guessing if your tv has PVR built in (via USB), it would be possible to record like that?

have a old PVR 1300 in my box

I just can't believe that that resolution is going to capture decent images, the police will end up putting out an arrest warrant for manic miner

Thanks for posting this - I think I will get one of these dummy cameras as well as a dummy burglar alarm- as I just want it as a deterent at the front of my property. I might even get one of these as well....

not likely - this is an analogue camera, and usually PVRs (inc TVs) can only record digital streams. They don't have any way onboard to digitise images, but just record the 1s and 0s that are sent over the airwaves.

If you have a PVR capable of recording analogue channels (or even a (gasp) VHS recorder!) you would be able to record though. Anything other than a computer with an associated capture card isn't likely going to work well though, as you'd need to change disc/tape regularly otherwise.

That is unfortunate then, I guess I'll just go have a look at them to see what's required.

But surely cops and robbers would be a more apt although less funny reference?

I am just saying that Manic Miner may have had ADHD but he was not a criminal.

An alternative which costs more but gives much greater quality is to use a Raspberry Pi in an enclosure with a Logitech C720 web cam, it will beat just about any IP camera out there unless you pay 10 times the price.

720p resolution. At that resolution you can actually identify people instead of that blurry I haven't got a clue who the person is who just keyed my car.

This is the Pi running with a £35 Logitech C920, quite impressive >

Can't recommend CCTV enough. We caught someone trying to sneak up our back passage in the middle of the night. Police took the footage away and the guy was arrested. Genuine story!.

The thought of someone sneaking up my back passage in the middle of the night has made me consider buying at least 100 CCTV cameras, some dogs, a shotgun and an alarm system.

I'm seriously thinking of getting on as I had my windows smashed 3 times in 11days, still waiting for them to be replaced. As police r unable to take prints off the offending rocks/bricks the idiot is still free to.carry on...

While this is better outdoors than a webcam

Some thing like this will be far superior
Yes no power adapter and youll need extension av cable but its a 700tvl sony ccd lens camera for similar money

and dome cameras a good low profile option too £75 will get a 700 tvl sony ccd dome hd camera full 960H D1 with pan&tilt and mini dvr with no hd drive (add your own) but gives network capability to remote access via phone/ipad etc

forget ebay rubbish, cctv42.co.uk is all you need - trust me I've wasted enough ££ on all sorts over the years. Three weeks ago we caught someone trying to break in front door, detective wanted to know where I got the cameras from as he's never seen such good quality. Few years back we caught another guy trying our car door, was arrested as police knew straight away who he was.

seems like u own this company...

yeah that's the usual response I get, just trying to pass on experience of having wasted hundreds myself

also be wary of putting these infra red cameras say near a front door, at night all you will get is a bright white face as the ir reflects off the persons face, resulting in absolutely nothing detailed facially. They're only decent high up, a non IR cam with a normal PIR sensor light will show the persons face in all it's true detail.

A gentleman called "Henry Firmam" owns the company, he may work there.

Is that towards me? haha really this is humourous all the allegations and assumptions at hand, I work for a firm in the city near liverpool street (hence my previous deals being moorgate and the like) - Although I should be on commission the amount of times I mention them whenever this topic comes up - he owns the company (henry) he's always on cctv forums and putting up youtube vids, I'll just ignore any cctv topics on here in future, it's just simply honest advice believe it or not, the latter being clearly chosen. I'm sure this camera from Aldi is up to spec along with the other chinese ones on ebay, good hot deal for anyone on a basement budget I'll say that. Anyone serious about high spec footage I'll only say do your research thoroughly, the guide on the link provided is just an insight.

Turn the lights off then - no webcam I've ever seen can do decent low/no light images.

The Pi camera with it's IR filter removed can do very good pictures (probably better than the Logitechs) but you'll get odd daytime colours without the filter in place. And with the filter the low light performance is less than ideal.

Not true. I have some ancient 3Com Homeconnect webcams, 640x480 (horrid) but they actually work in near 0 lux with no IR. Only problem is, they are SO out of date, that drivers hard to find. Got them working in Windows, but not tried Linux. They also come with interchangable lenses. I've got a wide angle and telephoto.

i have this survillance camera from aldis--but all the people s clothes are pink--any help please ? thankyou very much
