IP cameras that are part of a modern surveillance system are deployed using PoE technology that involves the use of copper based network cabling like CAT5e or CAT6 that has a data transmission limit of 100m (328ft). While that is adequate for installations for a home or small business, large scale installations may need to use a couple of different connection methods.

One optional component that can be added is the PIR sensor which stands for Passive Infrared sensor. PIR sensors are motion sensors commonly used in home security systems but can also be added to some of our security camera systems. Using this additional sensor, you can configure your camera system's DVR recorder to do a number of different things based on what you specify.

The PIR sensor is an electronic sensor that is triggered by measuring infrared light that radiates from objects that fall within its field of view. Passive is part of its name for a reason and that is because the sensor doesn't use energy for active detection.  It is only triggered if energy is being given off by an object.

A common problem that we are contacted about is sending multiple camera signals over one wire in a HD over coax system. Fortunately there is a solution for sending up to 4 camera signals over 1 wire using equipment called passive video balun hubs. A pair of hubs is able to send 4 camera signals from a transceiver to a receiver and then to a DVR using 1 Ethernet cable rather than installing a separate cable for each camera back to the DVR.

If two PTZ cameras are set to the same ID then they will receive the same commands. This causes both cameras to move in the same direction at the same time. Most people want to control their PTZ cameras individually, and in order to do that each PTZ needs a unique ID.
