Do you buy everything in twos?
Two heads is always better than one.

or in my case... two cameras or two security lights... I actually bought one camera and then went back for another as they only had couple boxes left in my store.
what's the resolution on these?

Cheers

It is worth nowhere near the price at Tesco but it's a good value at £20
How do they connect to TV/DVR? We have a Technika 8320HD and wondered if it would be able to connect up to it and record to it? If it does, I'd be getting one for my parents too for their peace of mind.

oh yea not even worth half, but for £20 and everything it does.. you'd pay that for a good dummy camera...

£20 even to have there not connected is worth it.

yea they connect using the WHITE & YELLOW video cables. (audio and video)
easy to do and connects straight to a TV or recorder, which is why I bought two to do that.

will hook them up to this and my network.

many thanks
anyone know how to get this to rec to a pc or nas
You'd need an analogue capture card of some sort, with a seperate input for each camera. Doubt a NAS could do it, you'd need a PC.
what is the picture like

I know you're trying to help but these Dazzle clone adapters are rubbish, you can buy them for £2-3 elsewhere
this price is available on ebay for this stuff
bordering on totally useless at that resolution for a security camera, or even basic monitoring... as for night vision at that rez... it's going to be pretty poor in daylight so god knows how bad it would be at night.

If you get the right drivers (took me a couple of hours!) they're actually pretty good. Does the job perfectly with a cheapo night vision camera.

They are cheap and if set up correctly (not hard to do) they are fine, as for price they are probably cheaper elsewhere Play was just the first result.

I don't agree at all, I have 6 cctv cameras setup, varying in quality from unbranded cheap ones to expensive Bosch and Panasonic camera's. This resolution is more than adequate.

actually... having put this directly on my 1080p 40inch TV right now I can say its pretty dam good.
could easily recognise faces or number plates... and that's all you need it to you, I don't need to see people's spots...

does the job without spending £100's! so what you can record in 1080p? and have massive amounts of gb for 2mins of footage?

its pretty cool, nice set of red lights and night vision works really well, bonus that its all smooth.

Don't forget £5 off £35 spend in Aldi voucher in today's 45p Daily Mirror. I.e. buy two cameras @ 19.99 each - 5.00 voucher + 0.45 newspaper = £35.43 for two or £17.72 each.
and still cheaper at ALDI

Why dont you just use a DVR in the first place and save having to leave the PC with a DVR you can possibly FTP or email yourself photos then
does this record on motion detection ?

but you'd have to leave it onto record constantly with a PVR? if I record using PC I can use it with software to record on movement... and auto save it to my NAS server for storage...
all sold out where i live

good deal, hott
was some in the Barrow store tonight.
Bought 4 tonight. Tried one, in artificial light they appear quite decent. Will look tomorrow in daylight. Turned the lights off and IR works quite well too.

Seems not a bad little camera with 18m of cable and easy to fix in place and wire up.

However, I bought for bird boxes primarily and they are not suitable as the focus is set to about 2ft onwards i.e., it is blurred any closer. I know this isn't what they are for but if, like me, you were thinking of buying for a bird box or similar use, don't as they will not be any good.

I've tried to see if I can dismantle to change the focus of the lens myself (some of these cameras you can do that) but I cannot find a way to undo the two 'screws' - what I mean is I can't even see what type of fitting they are and when I slid a driver in the recessed holes in the back it seems to come up against some sort of rubber grommet.

I'll have another go later.

But as a cheap CCTV system I think it's a simple and effective way to monitor whatever you want to monitor.

Heat.
Just to add - quite small and unobtrusive. Appears well made. Resolution has already been posted but in action I would liken the quality to an average SD video camera resolution when plugged directly into your tv. Certainly not HD, but fairly decent nonetheless and fairly good colour balance.

Worth £20 easily.
