    Hi, just wondered, I am thinking of buying a wireless Security camera system. But what I'd really like is so that all my TV sockets can distruibute the camera signal device. Basically I want to be able to switch on my TV in the kitchen or the bedroom and be able to view the CCTV signal . Bit like I'm able to pump the Sky signal from the digibox currently.

    thanks

    Antonio, what are your reasons for the Security camera system ?
    If it is a visual deterrant for would-be thieves, dummy cameras
    will do the job.
    If it is to help 'catch' criminals, you will be better off installing
    a dedicated recording device. you can then set your system to
    record at the correct time with 'video starting' equipment.
    Bear in mind that most intruders will attack your property when
    you are either out, or asleep.
    The only benefit to using Real Time Monitoring is when there are
    Security Teams in place monitoring 24/7.
    Johnny.

    Reason is two fold, so we can leav e a recorder on that channel whilst out and whilst in, we can monitor different zones outside of the property, live through the various tv's chanels and simply switch to that channel, plus you'd be able to see who's calling at your door.
    thanks for the link Corkonia!

    Beware, if you can receive a picture wirelessly, so will your neighbours and anyone parked outside with a suitable reciever.

    I would also guess that the remote cameras will need a power feed so why not install the cable connection at the same time? Obviously this depends on what cameras you are using etc etc, but I hope you see my point.
