For their own security system project, the reviewer used the Bulldog Cam as an external camera and noted that â€œThe Bulldog camera was a good choice for this location not only because of its tough, weatherproof case, but because it transmits high rezolution video at a 52Âº angleâ€. The reviewer also liked the fact that the Bulldog Cam had a long 33 foot cable to run through the house and was still be able to connect the composite video input of a TV.
To be able to monitor the camera through a computer, the reviewer installed the PC Security Guardian (PC DVR-4-Net PCI card). It was noted that â€œthe DVR software has a user-friendly interface and a host of features to customize each camera such as scheduled recording, motion detection, sensor alarm mode, and multichannel displayâ€ and â€œthe software has remote viewing options which require a broadband connection and a list of allowed IP addresses.â€
The reviewer commented on Swannâ€™s value for money factor, commenting that â€œI was able to build a comparable home security system that costs under (US)0â€. Overall the review highlighted that Swannâ€™s products were applicable to a wide array of situations at a highly affordable price.
For an indoor camera to monitor the entrances of their home, the reviewer wanted â€œa camera that was small and could easily be disguisedâ€. They found that the Microcam II was a â€œperfect solutionâ€ as it didnâ€™t require cables and can be hidden anywhere.|
