Wired Video Security Camera Systems


Should I use wireless or wired camera system?

Wired cameras are optimal for permanent installation of security cameras. Great care should be taken to determine the positioning of the camera because moving its location can be very difficult.

Wireless cameras can be used for either permanent or temporary installations. You can move the camera easily to a different location when needed without the need to run wires between the camera and recorder.


Can wireless cameras be used with wired cameras?

Yes. Wireless cameras can be used in any security system that uses wired cameras. For example, you could use 12 wired and 4 wireless cameras together and record them all on a video recording device.

My camera has two small switches on the end of the cable, what do these switches do?

Our new 4-in-1 cameras support four video technologies, TVI, AHD, Analog, and CVI. Our new DVR's support all four of these technologies as well, but the best one to choose is usually TVI. If you are not sure which technology to use, contact our technical support at 800-947-7328 or at webstaff@palmvid.com. The diagram below shows how to set those switches, the camera should be set to TVI by default when you receive it.

Can a system run on battery power?

Yes. We offer different sizes of rechargeable battery packs and chargers that can power our wireless cameras. They supply power to a typical camera for 4-8 hours before they need recharging.

What other equipment do I need?

Our video camera systems come complete with everything you need to send the video and signal. To view the live signal, just hook the camera to any TV. To record the live signal, connect the camera to any video recording device.
