  • Wireless Security Camera Systems Are Easy To Setup

    If you've been considering purchasing wireless cameras and are wondering how hard it is to configure a wireless security camera system then you need to watch this video we made. Up till now wireless security cameras have been riddled with issues. Up till 2012, the only kind of wireless security cameras available were those that used RF signals to transmit the video signal. Although RF signal is great for transmission of real time video (instantaneous transmission of action without delay), the signal is highly susceptible to interference from other wireless signals of the same frequency or from EMF transmitted by high power lines. Most importantly, RF wireless signals cannot traverse any obstructions whatsoever without significant degradation in video quality. Continue reading

  • How to Replace the Pigtail on a Outdoor IP Security Camera

    Properly protecting a camera's pigtail from the weather is a necessary step that every installer should take. In the off chance that this wasn't done, you probably lost your outdoor IP camera the first time it rained. In most cases this can be repaired by replacing the pigtail itself.

  • Hikvision DS-2CD2032-I vs. Dahua IPC-HFW4300S

    The Hikvision model DS-2CD2032-I and Dahua model IPC-HFW4300S are easily two of the most popular bullet style IP security cameras on the market. This only makes sense with these two manufacturers being as popular as they are. When posed with the question of which manufacturers, or brands, give you the most “bang for your buck,” you’d be hard pressed to find someone who won’t throw the Hikvision and Dahua names out there. Hikvision’s 2032 and Dahua’s 4300S have noticeably stood out as the most popular among these company’s other products in their IP camera lines. When you look at the information that’s out there regarding these cameras, they come off as nearly identical in almost every possible way. For that reason, we figured it was time to get both of them out side by side and see if we can’t find the real differences between them. Continue reading
