Many closed circuit video cameras use coaxial cables to hook up to your security equipment.

The Ultrak CCD is a closed circuit digital video camera used to monitor your home or office building. The camera fits just about anywhere and hooks up directly to a closed circuit television or security card installed on your computer. A single cable provides the black and white video feed (no audio) and can be attached to your video equipment in just a few minutes.


Step 1

Place the Ultrak CCD camera in any location you choose. If attaching to a wall or ceiling, place the base against the wall, then screw in the two Phillips screws through the connection holes on the base (this is provided with the Ultrak CCD camera).

Step 2

Insert the coaxial cable into the connection port on the rear of the video camera.

Step 3

Attach the opposite end of the cable into either the "In" port on your closed circuit television or into the "In" port on your security TV card.


Step 4

Power on the TV or launch the installed security program on your computer. The video feed from the Ultrak CCD video camera now loads onto the screen.
