Use On-Q's Camera Module to connect up to four different cameras to an On-Q home monitoring system. The module provides a convenient one-wire installation to each camera by supplying power, video, and audio (from a microphone-equipped camera) through a single CAT-5 cable.

You can output the signal from each camera individually, or combine all the cameras together on a single output and view them sequentially on a monitor. Integrate this module with additional On-Q components to view your cameras on TVs, in-wall LCD monitors, or even over the Internet with an optional IP Video Server.

Product Research


Overview: The On-Q Category 5 Camera Module allows you to connect up to four Cat 5 cameras, and view them from your TV, an On-Q LCD panel, or over the internet via the On-Q IP Video Server. Each camera connects to the module via Cat 5 cable. The cameras can be viewed sequentially on the same channel, each on a different channel, or a combination of both. A metal single-bay bracket is included to mount the module into an On-Q enclosure. In order to power the module, a separate power supply (717F7726) is needed.

Connections: The camera module has four RJ-45 camera input jacks for each camera, and four RCA composite video jacks that output the video from each individual camera. The built-in Video Sequencer has its own RCA composite output jack. When using a camera microphone with any of the cameras, the audio is output through a separate RJ-45 jack.

Video Sequencer: The Video Sequencer combines the video from all connected cameras and outputs them one at a time in sequence from a single composite video jack. A rotary knob below the sequencer output jack allows you to set the switching interval between cameras between 2 seconds and 40 seconds.
