Entry door security camera


Recommended Posts

I’ve been looking for some time to have a security camera above the entry door.  Most wireless cameras are not wireless  they still need a power wire. I also didn’t want to drill holes and fish wiring though the hull.  Roaming around Walmart I spotted this back up camera by Whistler.

  The camera is totally wireless and once fully charged via USB it has built in solar to keep the battery maintained. The monitor is 4in and plugs into a 12v outlet. With a suction cup mount. Looking at the picture on the box it looked like it would be a perfect fit above the entry door. The purchase price was $100,00  I rolled the dice if it didn’t fit perfectly it was going back.  I did a Amazon check it appears this model is only sold at Walmart.  The reviews on the whistler models were mixed good and bad.  Once the camera was charged I turned on the monitor within seconds the picture appeared. Very nice color image it has inferred for night time haven’t try it yet. Very few features it is not a continuous on you can choose  20 sec to 120 sec on then auto off plenty of time to see who is outside your door. Also no audio or recording capability.  Simple setup no frills. 

Mounting the camera I used Scotch outdoor heavy duty Velcro very secure. Very happy on the looks of the camera  attached to the hull above the door  it looks like a factory installed  option.  The Big question?? Will it last, does anything these days? It’s the $100.00 question. We shall see I'll give a review in 6 month’s the warranty is good for one year.  attached are the photos of the install.

Wow, that is pretty cool. Can the camera itself be adjusted vertically? 

Never mind, found a pic:

Looks like you have both the clear glass AND a camera.  Nice setup.

I also see in the manual that that supports 2 cameras so you could put one on the other side as well.

 

  1. This system can support 2 cameras, select the camera you

    would like to pair. Camera 1 is the rear camera, Camera 2

    is the front camera.

Hello, in order to attach the camera flat into the Ollie, did you removed the plate that goes to attach it if it would have been used on the license plate?
