I bought a Swann two-camera wireless set up a couple of years ago. One on the radar arch looking back for when we are in the PH and one in the ER. It has a one TB HD for recording and has four channels for up to four cameras. You can select to full-screen one camera or split screen the four. Video is 1080p and really crisp on both helm station GreenWise monitors.

Eventually I want to replace them with a system hard wired into my DC system rather than having to plug them into a local AC adapter. The ER is no issue as the outlet is two feet from the camera, but the one on the arch has a wire run under the bimini from the helm, about 20 feet.

You can use the Swann App to monitor the cameras remotely if you put them on a wi-fi network.

BTW...

My battery charger is working (battery voltage is between 12.25 and 13.75 volts)
Shore power is working
No fires or smoke are detected
Bilge water is not too high
The temp in the deep freeze is -3F

All is good.
And the beer is at a crisp 34° forgot that temp sensor......

[QUOTE=Codger2;69655Before I leave the bridge, I go to "camera" on the plotter and bluetooth sends the pic to the salon iPad. Even in pitch dark", the picture is quite clear.

ksanders...you state that you are able to tell what your battery voltage and freezer temp is, how do you do that? I have D-link cameras and when I try to read LCD or meters with class over them I get reflections and can't read them..thanks

The cameras are Dlink

I’m not using the cameras for those functions. I have a boat alarm system for that. My apologies for any confusion.

Hmmm. That kind of throws a wrench into my own ER monitoring plan. I was imagining that I would have one of rhe cameras focused on some localized gauges, like fuel filter vacuum, alternator temperature, etc. for monitoring at the helm.

Codger, what cameras did you use to connect to your raymarine system?

Although I didn't buy from this supplier, this is the exact model I bought & I paid $450.00ea in 20105.

A little pricey but a damn good camera.

Larry, I can think of no reason why that won't work!

A $450 camera probably wood work for monitoring gauges and LCD, but my cheap $90 D-link camera does not do a very good job.

Bilge pump alarm.
Low coolant alarm.
High water alarm.
Fire detection and automatic extinguisher system.
Fuel filter gauge on the dash.
Smoke alarms.
CO2 alarms.
Camera to see an empty engine room? Useless.

What would be useful is a dash-cam pointed backwards, that records so I can see the back deck to check on deck hands and monitor the moron who is about to wake me.

I don't use the cameras while cruising or when I'm on the boat, but I do do a visible inspection ever couple of hours. I use mine for the off season when I'm over a 1000 miles away at home. I like to be able to read an inside of the boat temperature, battery voltage, distribution panel and just a look over of the cabin and sun deck. The cabin temperature and battery voltages are what I have problems reading with my camera.
