|The Swann SW211-DSC color camera is both ultra-compact and low-cost, making it a perfect choice for DIY (Do-It-Yourself) discreet monitoring for your home or business. A built-in microphone provides audio along with video monitoring. Also included with the camera, is a power supply and 15 foot A/V cable, making it quick and easy to install.|
This was shockingly tiny coming out of the box...but that's good. It mounts easily just about anywhere and is very inconspicuous with it's flat black finish. Outdoor locations should be at least semi-sheltered from weather, such as under a roof overhang. A single cable coming out of it splits off into separate power and video/audio cables. The included wall-plug cube supplies power, so an outdoor outlet will make installation more convenient. Readily available RCA type extension cables routed inside to your TV complete the set-up. You can just use a single cable if all you want is video, or use a second cable to make use of the built-in microphone. A single button punch on my TV remote switches from TV to camera input. If desired it can be run through a VCR to get the action on tape. (You could even make home movies).
