Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 2.4 Ghz Wireless Surveillance System (Camera)
This video was taken with a Kodak EasyShare DX4530 5MP Digital Camera w/ 3x Optical Zoom aimed at my Insignia HD LCD TV that is projecting the images from the Instapark 1.2GHZ Hidden Mini Pinhole Nanny / Spy Wireless Color Video Camera with Microphone.. The "Beeping" sound is from a Driveway Patrol Sensor and Receiver Kit that I have mounted inside a feeder........... Yes I live a boring life :)
BTW, The video did lose about 10% clarity from being taken with the Kodak from the TV.
Overall a nice wireless video spy camera, but a 500' range? More like 50'-75' range.
I had to take down the camera and feeder (along with all the Peanuts) :( because the Squirrel's UGLY "Cousins" aka the Rats started visiting!
I wish I took videos of the "Mexican Standoffs" and seldom skirmishes between them.
BTW: The Squirrels always came out the "Victor"

Could you please tell me how many walls (if any) the signal of this camera would go through? Thank you

I guess that would depend on what the walls were constructed of, I.e. brick, drywall, lath and plaster, etc.
My personal "setup" went through only one wall consisting of fiberglass (siding), wood framing, insulation, and drywall.
In other words, I really can't say and I don't know?
Sorry, I couldn't be more helpful.

That was very helpful, thank you. So I should buy it having in mind that it may or may not go through any walls. I expected that. Thank you again!

You can always (easily) return it, but be sure you buy it directly from amazon.

You said it doesn't record.
I wish to use this to record kids destroying my property while I'm at work, either during the day or at night.
Is that possible to do with additional equipment?
Thank You, Chuck.

I bought a EasyCAP DC60 to try to record the videos using a computer. I will work on it this weekend, and I will let you know if I'm successful. So, if you buy a capture card, you can use your computer to record the videos.

I bought the EasyCAP DC60 and I was successful on recording and streaming on the internet the video from the camera on real time. I used VLC in a Linux machine, since the drivers for the EasyCAP DC60 come with the kernel. But as long as you can install the drivers on Windows, you can use VLC to record the footage on a file, and you can also stream the video on real time on the internet using VLC. One comment I have for those who use Linux: Create a file on /etc/modprobe.d with the line "options easycap bars=0", otherwise it won't work. If you want to know more or have any question, send me a message.

can the wireless receiver be connected directly to your computer with an adapter? if so, which adapter would work? what im getting fromt his so far is that the reciever goes to a tv, and then you need additional equipment to link it to a computer, on which you need other programs to record, correct? anyone know anything about using these 2 or 3 at a time? thxs!

YES! All you need to connect the wireless receiver to your computer is a capture card. In my case, I only bought the EasyCAP DC60. Again, you do not need a TV or additional equipment but only a capture card. I was able to record the input from the wireless camera and stream it real-time on the internet by using ONLY the EasyCAP DC60 - USB 2.0 Audio/video Creator Capture High-quality Analog Video . Any capture device should work, but this one is particularly cheap and solved my problem.
