Is anybody here familiar with the Swann Night Hawk wireless infrared
It's sold at Radio Shack, on Ebay and elsewhere. Here's a link that
providesa lot of info including the technical specifications.
I read the owner's manual and also found some reviews. If I buy one, I will
install it outside by my front door. The receiver will be hooked up to a B&W
Sony SSM930 monitor (if I can use a B&W monitor with this camera and
receiver). And there will be less that 10ft separating the camera and
I have 2 questions.
Question 1 - This is a color camera. Will it work with a B&W monitor both
day and night, ie. with natural daylight and infrared at night? I don't care
about the lack of color. I just need to know if I the B&W monitor will
handle the signal during the daytime using only daylight? I assume nighttime
images utilizing the infrared light would be B&W. Is this correct?
The owners manual suggests the system be set up with a "clear line of sight"
from the camera to the receiver for optimum results. Well, there is no line
of sight through a wooden door.
And some of the people who owned these complained about poor reception due
to the lack of a "sight line" between camera and receiver. None of them
mentioned the distance between the camera and receiver, however.
Question 2 - The signal will have to be transmitted 7-10ft and pass through
a 2" thick wooden door. Does this mean the camera and receiver will not work
Maybe I should just go wired. I'm not sure. Any advice will be appreciated.
