  1. Cool Components has some good products. Here is a link to the “venting rooms and equipment closets” section. They have a bunch of “cool” cooling products for all applications. http://www.coolcomponents.com/Rooms-Closets_c_9.html You can add a variable switch, link below so the hotter it gets, the more air it moves. http://www.coolcomponents.com/Advanced-LT-Controller-v2-OnOff-Variable-Speed-_p_390.html I have the VS-HF-PRO up close to the ceiling sucking warm air out and a passive vent around the floor that allows cooler air in. Simple, cost effective and works for me.
  2. For those of you with your own, what weather stations are you using?
  3. https://www.axis.com/en-us/solutions-by-application/license-plate-recognition I think it only works with Axis cameras, but appears to do everything you are looking for.
  4. I have several cameras outside and probably half have plenty of light and the other half could use additional light. Does anyone have any suggestions on an IR illuminator/floodlight that you use or have used? I am looking for one that is PoE. Thanks.
  5. What CK said. I have 11 cameras and have not had any issues.
  6. Personally I wouldn't have a button that can turn your alarm off. Could result in bad things. I have several that arm at doors when leaving or in the bedroom to arm/stay, but having one that disarms scares me. Just my $0.02.
  7. If you have a NAS, go IP and use the NAS for storage. You can use software like Blue Iris or whatever comes with the camera (free). Personally I would and did go IP. One stream pointed at C4 and the other pointed at the software.
  8. I don't have those specific cameras, but I do have both Hikvision domes and bullets integrated.
  9. Sorry if that came off wrong, I was truly just curious. Currently I have Tru Audio and Klipsch. Was really asking for when I add more or one of the others dies.
  10. Wouldn't any amp work if you are fine with 4% jumps? What would be the benefit of the C4 amp over another brand...quality, price, etc.?
  11. Answers match your numbers. 1. Personally, I have everything inside in a central closet. This is probably largely personal preference. I don't know where you live, but where I am it is hot, so I would worry about have an amp in non climate controlled area and it getting far to hot. If temperature is not extreme either way, probably either location is fine. In your case, wire gauge can basically make up for distance in my opinion. 2. I would run a conduit and then it doesn't matter. That way you can ultimately run whatever you need and will be future proof. 3. Yes, any amp will work unless I am not understanding the question. Amps are just pass through and not really even "integrated". If your amp is also your matrix that is a different question all together. 4. See 2. If not running conduit I would run double the amount of everything you think you might ever want. 5. For the speakers, here is another recent thread that discusses them. I am neither the smartest on these forums nor a professional in the business, but that is my $0.02 as an end user.
  12. I have 2 AWR-650-SM Outdoor Rock Speaker in the flower beds by the pool, 2 AW-650 Outdoor Speaker mounted on the house and 2 Episode® Landscape Series Burial Subwoofer with 12 in. Woofer buried in the flower beds and it sound pretty awesome in my opinion. The thing I would say is adding a subwoofer dramatically changes the "quality" of sound outdoors. Lots of outdoor speakers sound great and get loud, but few have the bass. Adding this will definitely set your system apart from others. The good thing about whatever you choose you will probably love it and be happy you picked them. Given you won't ever have anything else in your yard to compare them to, it will be hard for something to outperform them.
  13. Gotcha...makes sense. Just thought I might be missing something.
