September’s Q&A

How can I keep my prewired sensor cable runs from getting covered over by the dry wall people?

Answer: Partially drive a nail in the middle of a stud closest to you sensor location.  Wrap the stripped end tightly around the nail. Make sure to leave a loop in the wall in case the wire is nicked by the dry waller.  Tag it for extra measure.

I have a customer that wants to see an existing CCTV picture on an older consumer type TV set.  What can I use?

Answer: You need to get a modulator and modulate the signal.  The customer should be able to pick it up on channel 3 or 4 depending on how the modulator is set up.
