    it uses a 12v power source.i just used a old power pack from a old ntl modem that i had hanging around.they plug in by rca(phono).i used alarm wire from b&q them put (phono)rca plugs on each end to plug them in.took me less than 10mins to get it all setup.a easier way is to get audio phono's leads like what u plug from a head unit to a amp & cut & extend them then all u need is a 12v power supply.

    After my recent GSI bumper shenanigans and our house being broken into a couple of months back my dads no looking into CCTV. Apparently Costco are doing a deal on a four camera set up at the moment but i''m yet to look at it. The camera above from ebay looks a good shout just need to sort something out for it to record to so we don't have to have a PC running at all times.

    I would actually ask a security company such as ADT etc, as they have a lot of experience in this field. But i would do a 2 camera setup one from each corner of the front of the house being recorded directly on to a hard drive.
    Before you criticize a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way, if he gets angry, he's a mile away and barefoot.
