Question about eBay Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I am considering purchasing a home security camera, maybe more than one. I would like a Nest but can't afford one of those at this time.

I see on eBay many wireless home security cameras from China in the $25 price range. They look like Nest cameras or a little different but they seem to have the same or similar features. Does anyone know if these are worth buying? I don't know the manufacturer or model numbers of these from China. I have contacted the sellers to ask for this info and am waiting for responses. I would like to have one or two for inside the house and one for outside to keep an eye on my dog who has figured out a way to get out of the back yard.I can't caught him doing it yet. I just have to track him down and let him back in the yard. I set up a Nest camera for a neighbor and am impressed with it. I just can't afford one of those at this time. Has anyone ever purchased and used one of these inexpensive cameras from China? What are your opinions? Any feedback anyone can provide me with would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

How much a home alarm system cost?

the actual cost of an alarm system varies by company. most companies want the monthly monitoring revenue and offer the installation and equipment as an incentive for signing up with the service. to purchase equipment directly can vary greatly by type of equipment, number of devices and services wanted. your best option is to get at least three quotes from and compare what you are getting for you dollar. most alarm contracts for monitoring auto-renew after the initial term so you want to watch for that. most often batteries and acts of nature are not covered under any warranty.

my search did not help, not enough info to do a good search. model numbers may help. the camera number does get info but nothing on the company. you can just get another dvr security system less the cameras and connect these cameras to it and start over. i did that few time just in doing upgrades. the cameras are mostly universal anyway just make sure you connections are the same from the camera to the dvr. sorry i can't help more. but not enough info for a good search. good luck. try ebay for dvr systems for the head unit.
try this.

The video timer seems to be set at 1 minute is there a way that i can increase the length of time?

The time is a function of how much space is available for storage on your Compact Flash card. As you're inferring that your maximum video size is one minute, am guessing that you have a 128MB CF card. To be able to save larger videos, consider purchasing a larger CF card. You can purchase relatively inexpensive 2GB CF cards these days from eBay (direct from Hong Kong) that would be acceptable for use in your camera. You should be able to get close to 20 minutes with this size card. However, you might also consider using a card reader to download the file to your computer, as downloading from your camera will eat batteries at this filesize.
