Depending on the Security System, it may have a VGA out. If so, your set. If not, you will either need a converter to change the output of your security cameras (probably RCA's) to VGA., or you can route it through a PC if you have a capture card.

    OK your Security System's Video out is an RCA Cable. The Monitors Input is VGA. You can use an RCA to VGA adapter to connect the Monitor to the Security System. Something Like This Should work.

Check your computer to make sure it is actually sending out a signal. You can do this by hooking up another working monitor. If the other monitor works, there maybe a problem with the original monitor and it may need to be sent for service repair.

The problem is most likely the monitor itself. Hook up an old monitor (usually someone has an old monitor laying around) if the computer works with another monitor you'll know for sure.
Look at your monitor using a flash light at an angle, if you can see a picture in the background you have a bad inverter.
