Adventures In Wireless Video

Tips on bidding and selecting components for a wireless video project with networked indoor and outdoor CCTV cameras and recorders. The project also included refitting the front doors with new exit devices, a door bell and a remote release system.


Except for aiming and focusing, all other settings are performed through the NVR using software which is accessed from the desktop. The menus are rather straightforward, and tech support is always available if you need it.

Digital ID View’s scalable NVR solution is built to order and designed to provide extended reliable professional video surveillance. The system may be ordered in a variety of configurations (tower, rackmount) with whatever complement of hard drives you require.

The NVR, Model IV-4/16/24/32VK-NVR, can also be configured for hybrid operation, hosting both analog as well as IP cameras.

Middle Atlantic Wall Mount Rack

The Middle Atlantic Redesigned Sectional Wall Mount Rack with Enhanced Cable Management for Larger Systems is sturdy, attractive, easy to install and cost effective for making a home for video surveillance head-end equipment. When we realized that the room designated for our equipment was not air-conditioned, we installed Middle Atlantic’s fan kit to provide forced air ventilation. We also added a ventilated shelf to the enclosure.

The locked cover prevents unauthorized access to the equipment within.

Wireless Bridge Link

The Digital ID View IV-RD7184-1 long range outdoor wireless video link operates in the 2.4 and 5.8 GHz frequency bands. It provides high bandwidth up to 54Mbps and features high transmitted output power as well as superior sensitivity. It provides user-friendly interface including user friendly distance control ranges from 300 feet to up to 4 miles and RSSI LED indicator offering real time signal status.

A separate PoE injector is used to provide power to the wireless radios.

The wireless bridge enforces transmission security with full support of latest encryption mechanism including 64/128-bit WEP, WPA and WPA2 with 13dBi internal antenna and superior performance.

LuxRiot Software

LuxRiot is a digital video recording and remote surveillance software package for Windows. LuxRiot accepts video streams from all major network (IP) cameras and servers, frame grabbers and any direct show compatible devices including webcams and USB cameras. Along with the LuxRiot client-server architecture, you can build fully scalable solution sizing from a single camera up to thousands of cameras.

LuxRiot was designed to primarily be used to:

1. View live video streams from multiple sources locally and remotely, over the Internet.
2. Record video from multiple sources and play them back later locally or remotely
3. Export previously recorded video to preserve it and to present it as evidence.

LuxRiot offers a principally new concept for DVR solutions – “One Software/Choice of Hardware”. LuxRiot DVR software can be either integrated with supported hardware or acquired from a LuxRiot reseller as a part of a complete digital video recording and remote surveillance solution.

LuxRiot consists of two major components: DVRServer and DVRClient. DVR Server is a behind-the-scene application that captures, processes and records video and then serves it to a local or remote DVR Client software. DVR Client is the application that shows live and recorded video streams from a single DVR Server or multiple DVR Servers. It also allows users to configure and control DVR Server(s).

In order to better suit your customers’ needs and budget, LuxRiot has five editions ranging from Personal to Enterprise and each edition varies in the number of allowed cameras, the number of simultaneous remote DVR Client connections as well as other limitations, or lack thereof. However, all of the LuxRiot editions have the same user-friendly interface and functionality.

LuxRiot DVR Personal Edition is a shareware product, which means you can try it first, and then buy if you like it.
