Coleman PSD3E Solar Security Camera Light 480TVL

 

 

  • Uses no electricity, only solar power (light, motion sensor, transmitter only)
  • Runs up to 14 hours on a full charge
  • Advanced monocrystalline solar panel and lithium-polymer battery
  • Photocell prevents lamp from coming on during the day
  • Motion sensor turns on light and camera
  • Wireless installation

 

Don’t let an intruder sneak up on your home. This security camera looks like a floodlight, but it contains a covert camera as well. And it does not require AC power or video cable! Mount this solar-powered camera/floodlight where it can keep an eye on things, then point its solar panel towards the sun. Connect the video receiver to a video monitor or DVR and you’re finished with the installation. The sun will charge its internal lithium polymer battery and give you up to 14 hours of continuous illumination. But because there are both a photocell and a motion sensor, the floodlight will come on for 60 seconds only when triggered, conserving battery power. The receiver has a built-in quad screen system, allowing you to connect up to 3 more cameras to monitor your entire property. The lamp housings are made of cast aluminum to act as heat sinks for the LEDs, to assure durability and ensure maximum brightness. The LEDs are from CREE, the best available, and emit 600 lumens (the same as a 60 watt incandescent bulb).  Read More

Create an Outdoor Media Center that Stores a Small Flat Panel TV and Other Gear

February 9, 2012 Leave a comment

The medialifTV system lets you build an entertainment center equipped for outdoor environments. You’ll never have to lug your television outside for a temporary setup for outdoor parties. This enclosure is designed to be left outside, while protecting its contents from the elements. Large enough to house a flat panel television up to 47 inches and related media components such as cable boxes, game consoles, and movie players, the medialifTV system is weatherproof to provide a permanent outdoor media center. Beautiful, rounded edges and sides make this a sleek and sophisticated storage compartment and TV lift.

A built-in auto-lift mechanism allows you to raise and lower your media gear as needed. When you are ready to view, the system will lift the TV out of the enclosure. After you shut down your TV, a quick button press stows everything into the enclosure, forming a weatherproof seal to safeguard your devices from open-air conditions. Each system is equipped with an infrared remote control and wired switch box. Use the remote to raise and lower your TV from a distance. Or use the manual switch located on the enclosure itself. The remote requires the use of one CR2025 lithium battery, included.

Front mount enclosures can be mounted behind a wall or work bench, even in the back of a truck. The media-QUAD system is perfect for watching movies or sports games during backyard barbeques and parties. You can even take the enclosure to tailgating events. The media-QUAD enclosures can be used in both stud and concrete installations. Additional mounting options include a rear mount for mounting in front of a wall or a wheeled rover option for a truly mobile media center.   Read More

Hall Research EQ-HDMI-DP HDMI Active Extender Decora Plate with ExtenderAchieve a professionally installed look with the use of Hall Research’s HDMI Decora Plate Extender. This decorative wall plate not only provides a standard HDMI plug connection for any HDMI device, its active equalization cleans the signal traveling through long cable runs. Fully compatible with HDMI versions 1.2a and 1.3 and the unit is self powered and requires no additional power supply.

The EQ-HDMI-DP can be used on the source end of your home entertainment center as a booster (to push HDMI up to 50 ft), however, it is better suited as a receiver on the remote end of the cable where it acts as an active equalizer to display the image on your display. In that case, you will be better suited to use the less expensive Passive Pass-Through HDMI Connector on the source end and be able to extend the video to 65 feet or longer. Read more
