The ITSPP Infra-red Surveillance Systems
In the Shadows Paranormal Project uses two Infra-red Surveillance Systems.
One that connects via a I/O card installed directly into an HP desktop PC, with Windows
7 sp2, 2 gigabytes of memory, 200 gigabyte hard drive. Our second system is for a
portable DVR (Digital Video Recorder) system connecting to a laptop. Both are capable of
using the Sony Bravia 40” monitor when power is available, or smaller LCD monitors.
FG Video Surveillance 16 Web Cam System
Our primary system, an I/O card is installed in our HP Desktop PC, supporting 1 to 11 cameras, with the use of
any video capture device (DVR). Although it includes is software for Video Monitoring and Motion Detection
System suitable for both home and business (making it a value at a small price). We have developed our own
software for monitoring, freeze frame, and playback. This system allows us to watch over client 'hot spots' with
relative ease from ‘Home Base.’
For unattended monitoring we also use an advanced image motion detection system to capture video to file of
anything that moves in front of the camera. We can receive alarm notifications via our email, and directly to our
cell phones or activate a sound alarm that can be heard nearly anywhere. We are also able to review the
captured video files on our home PC’s remotely from anywhere in the world over the Internet. As well as scan
multiple cameras at several locations locally or remotely.
The best part of this system is that it allows us to Remotely View Live Video and Audio of a client’s home or
business from anywhere via the Internet, by any member of our team, at any time. We can even take remote
control of any of the 16 surveillance cameras over the Internet, change video or alarm settings when required,
check program variables and review vital capture statistics. Even restart the program with our protected remote
password that logs users access to the system. This program truly fills an important need for the In the Shadows
Paranormal Research team.
Sony Bravia Monitor/Television
Our 40" Sony Bravia provides us exquisite detail as a monitor and playback. As a television it allows us to
view all of our cameras live in HD quality without having to squint. As well as review footage from our any of
the surveillance cameras in full HD zoom, including the associated video camcorders for more detail in the
panel on the right.
XBR6 Series features: Full HD 1080p, Motionflow™ 120Hz, BRAVIA® Engine EX full digital processor,
Live Color Creation™ technology, Advanced Contrast Enhancer circuit (ACE), 24p True Cinema capable,
x.v.Color™, piano gloss black finish with floating glass accent.
Advanced Security Surveillance Solutions
Our secondary system will work with most MS Windows operating systems including Vista 7. It uses a any
compatible USB port for a 4 Camera 60fps Mobile DVR system, which can operate in Full Color (day mode)
or infra-red (night mode). This system provides our investigative team with an easy to install, and easy to use,
DVR Portable System that allows any of our team’s laptop computers to become a fully functional 4 camera
digital video recorder system. This is perfect for any team that can only afford a smaller system and already
owns a laptop or desktop PC.
It is simple to plug into a USB available port (cable included), install the software (included with the DVR),
and connect your cameras (all sold separately). That’s all there is to it and you're done! No complicated "cards"
to install and absolutely no tools required. The smaller 4 port DVR is even powered by the USB connection
from the PC. So this system can be totally available entirely on battery, when no outside power source is
available for the investigation. The USB-DVR has all the features found only on professional DVR's like 30fps
(overall) recording, high-resolution color MPEG4 recording and adjustable motion detection. And best of all,
it's capable of remote viewing though standard Internet browser. Included with this unit are 2 audio channel
inputs for audio recording. For a fast, easy, and economical surveillance system for your team.
Motion detection recording allows easy recording only when activity is detected in front of the cameras.
Allowing the need to view endless hours of redundant footage to find an incident. The motion detection has an
adjustable grid and sensitivity selection for each camera to optimize our recording settings as well.
The USB-DVR is perfect for people that only have a laptop computer. Simply plug into a USB port (cable
included), install the software (included), connect your cameras (sold separately), and you're done! No
complicated "cards" to install and absolutely no tools needed. It's even powered by the USB connection. The
USB-DVR has all the features found only on professional DVR's like 60fps recording, high-resolution color
MPEG4 or MJPEG recording and camera selective motion detection. And best of all, it's capable of remote
viewing though standard internet browser and PDA. For a fast, easy, and economical home or business security
solution, the USB-DVR is the product of choice.
Portable Hard Drive
Don't forget to get a portable USB drive for recording and transferring your data. These are readily available at
Best Buy, Circuit City, Media Markt, and just about anywhere quality electronics are sold.
Infra-red Surveillance Cameras
550 Line 28 LED Vari-focal Infrared Outdoor Camera
We own two of these exceptional cameras. Exceptional quality camera, extremely durable. 24 volts AC or 12
volts DC operation. Easily adjust the lens mm and focus to your exact specific needs
whether it be 5 inches or 100 ft distance. Carbonite Composite LEDS
are the are the latest innovation for infrared illuminators. This type
of LED last twice as long as the standard 850 nm style. View up to
100 feet in total darkness. No tools whatsoever are required to
adjust focus or mm width. There are 2 weatherproof adjustable
hand screws on the bottom of camera that will allow you to set the
focus and distance to your exact requirements. And are ideal in cold
weather, as well as indoor or outdoor use.
940nm 104 LED Color Camera
ITSPP’s favorite cameras are these extremely reliable cameras. Their smaller size makes them ideal for
placement within a small room, almost undetectable in the darkness, and have become our workhorses and
used on early every investigation surveillance cameras have been required. We highly recommend them and
believe them to be one of the best cameras we’ve ever used.
The 940nm Infrared LED (light emitting diode) is virtually invisible to the naked eye at night or in the dark.
This camera is considered a specialty camera. is ideal for theaters, sleep Clinics, store rooms, warehouses,
nursing homes, and many other locations where you do not want the camera visible at all in the dark.
Full color in normal light, with a 1/3" Sony Super HAD CCD automatically switching to B/W with infrared
illumination in low light conditions. See up to 60 feet in total darkness. Power/video cord attached, AC
adapter and mounting bracket included. 12 DC volt operation.
The 940nm LED does not output as much visible light as the 850nm. Thus more LEDs are required for
equal lighting, The 850nm LED is the standard for outdoor infrared surveillance cameras. If this is what you
are looking for then we recommend our 580 line high resolution cameras.
Infrared Camera with Audio
Outdoor weatherproof cameras with audio are few and far between. This camera features 480 lines of high
resolution color with 20 infrared LEDs that automatically illuminate when the environment turns to night or
dark. It has a water, crush, and dust resistant glass coating. There is a very small hole at the base of camera
exposing the microphone. The microphone is rated at approx. a 10-15 foot listening range.
However, a word to the wise – we purchased this camera from eBay, and one
of the cameras came in non-functioning. To date, we still have not gotten a
replacement from the fly-by-night person that sold it to us. It was purchased
for $129.00 to save some money. But with the service we have received from
Advanced Security Products would have made it a better deal at $199.00.
They stand behind their products and bend over backwards to make sure
everything is right! The one we do have is also a great camera for
warehouses, gymnasiums and store rooms as well has a crisp clean image.
BNC connection for audio and video. 100ft power, video, audio cable,
mounting bracket and power supply included.
Don't forget to get enough BNC connectors to connect up to your DVR cards and
Plug & Play Cables We also have what is referred to as the 3-way 100' foot Plug
and Play cables. This allows us to have all power, audio recording, and video connections in our 'Home Base'
Power, video, and audio in all on one cable, 3-wire choices, and we have them wrapped on a spooler purchased
from Lowes or any home improvement store. All of our hard wired cameras are plug and play ready regardless
whether it is an indoor or outdoor camera. One end is female and other end is male. Power supplies are female
and cameras are male. It does not matter whether your camera is RCA or BNC, we supply necessary adapters.
Makes installation a snap. Eliminates the need to run separate power cable or find power near the camera. Most
individuals use these cables to add distance between the camera and recording device. These cables will allow
you to have most hardwired cameras up to 150 feet away and plug directly into your TV or VCR. You do not
need to have a power outlet near camera.
This cable runs power, video, and audio making it ideal for cameras with audio.
Other items you may need would include microphones, RCA jacks and connectors, and good power
connectors. Also be sure you have some extra grounding adapters when the outlets are not grounded. Otherwise
you won't be able to use the available power sources.
