I have a camera in the radar arch. It checks all rear view plus transom and Flybridge area, very useful when crew moves around the boat, particularly kids. A second camera checks the engine room
It is possible also to connect the signal to a pc with movement detection recorder, therefore you can check what has happened if you leaved the boat going out for dinner...

Alberto. What cameras did you use with the rather good looking monitor. I could hook up cameras to my Raymarine E120, but the cost of those seem a little steep.

I have two cheap camera's connected to my Ray E-90W that monitor vacuum gauges. I just bought 2 more for engine monitoring, $40 each and low light. I believe any compatible camera will work, read the instructions for your E-120.

I bought both in NY at B&H, they have a wonderful webpage.
The monitor you can see in the picture, is a HD external flat monitor for professional cameras.
The problem with the raymarine camera is the aluminium support bracket which corrodes very fast

The camera is this one:

Hey, thanks Alberto.

I find that when it looks like I might get waked, I noodle a bit, don't hold a steady course as if I have had a few beakers of beer, (I NEVER drink while operating the boat or have grand kids aboard) but the over takers need to actually take into account that I am taking up more room and they have to slow or alter course. It's particularly bad in the Copeland Islands...

The Sea Ray that passes you at 25 knots, 25 feet off your side and knocks your crap all over the cabin and hurts your crew can be filmed and charged. Then sued. Maybe you could own his boat? The law says you are responsible for your wake.

I just installed a wireless security camera system, designed for home use but chose the one with best water resistant rating for the cameras. I put 2 cameras in the ER, have one at the stern facing back (my rear view mirror if you like) and one is still lying on the counter top until I figure where to use it. They are connected to a small TV in the pilothouse. The system can record - motion detectors in the IR camera's will start recording. So if you want to know who has been visiting your dock, you can!
