so...even tho i have found one for under 1500 usd, can i just make one for less?

can i just buy an itablet and download the software or a laptop that can monitor the wireless cameras?

or buy a monitor, and a (insert technical term for hardware here) or whatever is needed for the dvr and just build it and us Windows as my OS and
download the software?

can i do this cheaper?

a guy I worked for was able to view his store security cameras from his fuking iphone. soo, if i just buy a verizon android, can i do that then or would i still need a seperate dvr?
go easy, break this down for me, im noob, im not familiar with the hardware its currently using.

Re: Can I just make one?

I think you can build one of these. You will need to also buy the wireless receiver units to pick-up the signals from wireless cameras and also need a device to acccpt the digital video input from a wired camera. AFAIK its just a laptop computer, a (USB?/PCI?) device for receiving wireless video signals, a USB?/PCI? device for inputting wired (digital) video signals, some software to integrate it all into an appliance and a case. If you build one yourself you could also integrate other devices into the case such as a wireless video signal detector and a wirelss video signal jammer.

Re: Can I just make one?

I'mnot sure how much money it ould sae you, but one possibility would be to see if you can get a non portable version, i.e. one you have to plug into main power, then convert it to work on battries. It might nto be as simple as that but most electronic devices have a rectifier that converts the AC from the mains into DC like a battery to work the unit, so if for example you found that it rectifies mains power into 12 volt DC then converting it to run off say a car battery would be pretty simple. I know car batteries are pretty big and it could work of 24 volt DC which would eman you'd need 2, but you could always buy special batteries (like the ones that are inside a laptop battery) and string a load together to suit your purposes. Like i said i dont knwo how much this would save you but usually when u have a choice between somehting that needs to be plugged in and somehting that runs off batteries the pluggy in option is usually a good bit cheaper, so as long as the batteries don't add up to much you could potentially save a decent amount without having to build the whole unit from scratch.

http://kipkay.com/videos/battery-hacks/ ... tery-hack/ An example of how much cheaper it is to string batteries together yourself ratehr than buying (in this case) a laptop battery.
