Hi. I've got a DVR4. 1260 and 2 cameras have failed, would these units work with this DVR. Thanks

Asked by: Paddy
No these cameras are not suitable. If you want a dome camera for that system then you need http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/swann-pro-h856-1080p-dome-camera-twin-pack-a77wg NB these HYBRID cameras need to be set to TVL mode before you mount them in order to operate with your DVR, this is achieved by applying power to the camera and holding the small joystick on the camera cable in the UP position for 5 seconds.

Is it possible to buy a single camera?

Asked by: Alan
On this occasion Maplin do not stock a product that exactly meets your requirements, or indeed anything close enough to offer you as an alternative.
