VEO Wireless Observer RS232 serial cable help please
I have purchased this camera off eBay but alas it did not come with the serial cable, I have bought 1 serial cable (2 wires inside) but this did not work, so i am assuming its some special cable? Anyway, can someone please help me to locate a RS232 serial cable that will work for this unit? Failing that the pin outs would be equally helpfull?

Bashy, a long shot is to get a 3,5mm stereo plug and RS232 female connector, wire it up, you only need pin 2,3 and 5 from the RS232 to 3,5mm plug (see photos). Peter
change over 2 and 3 (on one end) if doesn't work firs time

The motion detector is available new on Ebay right now from an electronics surplus dealer. Just type in 12v motion as your search and at least half a dozen come up. I bought one and it was new in the box with the instructions.
While you had it plugged in the serial port you should have set the SSID name for the camera?
You may have to enter this manually to find the camera. If it is not set to broadcast this SSID, it will work but you must put it in the wireless connection settings.
Can you help me? I have an Observer camera too. And I have the problem
"no response from camera" (Veo Observer Studio) and I can't reach the
camera via Explorer too (the page dosen't exist).
Earlier it is working well except the remote access. I try it resolve and came the problem: "no response from camera".
Make sure that you are using Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher. If you are experiencing problems, try upgrading to the latest version of Microsoft's Internet Explorer from the Microsoft webpage at: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie
1) Go to C:\Program Files\Veo Observer Studio and delete the files: xrlknc.dll and xrlkncd.dll.
2) After the files have been deleted, try using the Veo Observer Studio again.
1) Uninstall the Veo Observer Studio from your computer.
2) Download the latest version of the Veo Observer Studio from our webpage at: http://www.veo.com/Observer/firmware.asp if it still has the same promblem refer to your display or the grafix recommendations
