Wireless Camera Install

Just finished installing a couple of wireless cameras. One in the ER and the other on the radar arch facing the stern so we can "see" when in the PH.

AND I resolved the issue with the FB monitor showing "Out Of Timing," it was the resolution setting.

I am REALLY please with the quality. See short video here:



And this is a shot of the ER from the FB monitor during a nice sunny day today. The light at top left is a ER light that I need to tweak the camera away from.

I have room for two more cameras. I saw a pair in Wal-Mart today for ~$80 so I may grab those and just use them temporarily when we leave the boat at home to travel for periods. Using crocodile clips or cable ties I can put one on the bow rail looking back and one in the cockpit watching the boarding area. Or even on the back of the house watching the whole boat. Then remove when we get back.

Thanks,

There is a 19 inch Green Marine monitor in the PH, and a 15 monitor which replicates on the FB.

It is not dedicated, you can hook up a good set of inputs with VGAx2, DVIx2, Composite x3, RS232x1. Here is the data sheet PDF.

Then you just select your input - or multiples using PIP.

I'm sure in Larry's case, it's not maintenance related. He probably just wants to drool over his spiffy new engine room.

Great job Menzies,


It is always best to have an extra way of seeing behind you. It was a wise move on your part to install them.


Now I am wondering if you will place one so you can watch the mystery box???


Thank you for sharing and posting the video.




Cheers and happy cruising.
