Product Questions (18)

At the top of the page in the product desription you say it has a Sony SuperHAD CCD but both the additional information and the product data sheet say it has a CMOS sensor, this is both rather confussing and as I believe the CMOS is the acurate desciption a bit dissapointing
Does POE require a splitter at the camera or does it auto sense..
how would you attach an external microphone to this camera? via a standard 3.5mm jack? Where would the sound be captured? Could you incorporate sound and video together via the software provided?
Hi, you mentioned that you can set the cameras to record at a certain time, how is that achieved? via the software? I want to record from 6pm till 10pm and after that I want the cameras to turn off until 6pm the next day, is this possible without physically touching the cameras? what about setting specific days to film only? Also can you set one camera to do specific days and hours, and another camera on the same network film at alternative hours? I am looking to have 4 cameras on the same network filiming at different times, please let me know if this is possible, thank you.
thank you very much for your very prompt reply, and to your expert inputs,

if you dont mind can you recommend a 3rd party software that i can use as an NVR, ACti software for me lacks features like recording information, and a few bugs i found out.
what is the ideal bitrate, resolution , frames per second setting that i should use in NVR recording so that i can view at least 9 cams over the net..

here in the philippines a house hold internet bandwidth averages 1 MB downstream..

can i view 25 cameras on a web site..? ive tried port forwarding to my NVR, i made a successful connection over the net but that was 2 cameras running, now we are using 25 cameras and i cant view it over the net anymore, seems i need a lot of internet bandwidth to view my cams offsite..


we have25 units installed in our compound ACti ACM 1231, what other way to know if the cameras are recording, aside from checking that the record button is pressed or actually checking that the camera directory is incrementing in bytes, it would be very helpful if theres a view like blinking RED Light the signifies that the cam is recording

you say it works on windows x.p. but does it also work on vista.. thanks
Hi, Does this camera have the ability to view the live feed over a built-in web interface like other ip cctv systems, for example, to use dynamic dns to view via a web link.
Does this then mean that it will work on a network without any local storage (Broadband connection only for FTP/Email)?
1. Does the camera capture sound?
2. Can you use alternative software programmes to play about with the video clips?
3. How large would a video clip filmed for 1 hour on high quality be?
1. Can I connect this camera directly to a laptop or pc without a DVR?
2. If so will it display pictures or video?
3. Can I connect two cameras simultaneously on the same pc or laptop?
4. Can I turn the motion detection off on the camera?
Hi, Does this camera have any internal storage capability? eg. SD Card?
Otherwise can it send via email / FTP?
Also, what is the maximum distance for the IR at night? Thanks
How wide is the angle on this camera? i.e. in degrees? Can i set up a zoom and angle so that this camera, if moved, can be automatically returned to the original zoom and angle? What DVR do you recommend to bring the best out of this camera?
how much bandwidth is required to stream live images from this camera?
Can I display the video feed from this IP camera on a page on a website?
Will this network web camera work with Firefox?
We'd like to run the cable(s) to the camera through some flexible plastic conduit, what thread size is the cable gland hole?
