WHY FIRST ALERT SECURITY CAMERAS?
Over 50 Years of Safety and Security Experience
For more than half a century, BRK Brands, Inc. has made the home-safety and
security products that make your job easier. These products are marketed under
the First Alert and BRK brand names. Our products are built to the highest
standard which has earned the company a leadership role in the home-safety
and security product categories. We are committed to serving our customers,
from you, the professionals who install our products, to the families who count
on them.
First Alert/BRK has introduced a line of Security Cameras targeted towards the
small business owner and high-end residential market. Until now, your customer’s
options have been limited. Spend thousands on the design, installation and
maintenance of complicated security systems or sacrifice quality and features for
other entry level systems. First Alert Security Cameras have all of the important
features your customers need for their small to medium security monitoring
requirements.

How many locations do you need to protect?
First Alert Security Camera systems are available in systems that can accommodate
up to 16 cameras. For most residential and small business applications this is sufficient
for covering a front and rear entrance along with several inside locations like the
cash register, storage area, key warehouse locations or residential interior rooms.
Wired or Wireless?
Wired Systems: Wired systems provide the most secure camera monitoring and are
perfect for new construction or anywhere access to an open cable run is available.
In addition, the wired systems supply power to the cameras from the cable so no
electrical outlets are required near each camera.
Wireless Systems: First Alert wireless systems operate on a secure 2.4 GHz digital signal
using frequency hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) technology. This FHSS technology
is highly resistant to narrowband interference and is difficult to intercept. However,
as with any wireless transmission, it can be subject to interference, interception or
jamming under certain conditions. Wireless signals can be significantly reduced
depending on the structures the signal must go through. Concrete, copper and metal
pipes and heating ducts tend to reduce the signal length. In addition, the camera
needs to be plugged in to a 120V outlet near the camera. If no outlets are available
they will need to be installed first.
What is the maximum distance you need to cover?
Longer runs may require an upgrade to RG59 CCTV Coax cable. First Alert kits ship
with economical AV cable that is designed to work well up to the length of cable
provided, usually around 60 feet. If longer distances between camera and DVR are
required, you will need to upgrade to RG59 Coax cable. We provide several lengths
up to 300 feet. In addition, if you need to run cable for in-wall installations, then you
may require fire rated cable, FT-4/CMR UL approved for in-wall installations.
Do you need to monitor your system remotely?
All of our wired and some wireless systems have the capability of being monitored
using an internet connection. Remote access is available via your PC or Mac
computer or via a smart phone through software provided or downloaded from your
smartphone app store. Access ranges from all DVR functions to just remote viewing
of the live view feed depending on the model.
HOW TO CHOOSE
HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR CAMERA SYSTEM
Do you need audio surveillance?
Our wireless systems and some of our wired cameras have the capability of audio
surveillance and recording. Be aware that audio surveillance in some states is illegal
or requires permission from one or both parties to record someone’s voice. Laws are
also different from residential vs. commercial applications. Be sure to check with state
or local authorities in your area for laws that may affect your installation.

INGRESS PROTECTION (IP RATINGS)
The IP rating is used to specify the strength of the enclosure that surrounds electronic equipment and is
determined by specific tests. Each IP rating consists of using two separate measures. The first is protection
against solids; the second number is protection against liquids. So therefore an IP rating of 65 is totally
protected against dust and is protected against low pressure jets of water from all directions with limited ingress
permitted.

MECHANICAL PROTECTION (IK RATINGS)
The IK rating is an international numeric classification (EN/IEC 62262) for the degrees of protection provided
by enclosures for electrical equipment against external mechanical impacts. For cameras this can be a measure
of vandal resistance of the housing. Not all cameras have an IK rating. This mechanical impact is identified by
the energy needed to qualify a specified resistance level, which is measured in joules (J).

CCTV COAX CABLE CONSTRUCTION
Not all coax cables are created equally. You do not want to use CATV RF coax video cable used for
standard cable TV installations for your CCTV installation. This CATV cable can cause video distortion
and excessive loss of video strength because of the copper-covered steel core and aluminum braiding.
First Alert’s RG59 CCTV Baseband/composite coax video and DC power cables use a solid copper
conductor for less voltage drop and better signal over longer distances. This also makes the cable easier
to handle versus other lower quality copper clad steel cables as it is less rigid and will not remain coiled.
In addition, the cables are double shielded with copper clad aluminum (CCA) braiding to help protect
the video signal from interference. This offers an economical alternative to a solid copper braiding
shield while still meeting industry standard requirements. Runs can be made up to 600ft without video
performance loss.
Each cable comes with BNC Male connections on each end of the video cable and 1 jack male, 1 plug
female on the ends of the DC power cable (2.1mm I.D./5.5mm O.D.). We also supply two adaptor
plugs for your convenience. One is a BNC female to BNC female adaptor to provide a way to connect
two lengths of cable together. The other is a BNC Female to RCA male connector to attach cable to a TV
RCA female (Yellow Video in) input. In addition, we offer cable that is fire rated FT-4/CMR UL approved
for in-wall installations. All of these features ensure your customers of the highest quality installation.

INFRARED (IR) LIGHT AND ITS EFFECT ON
COLOR SECURITY CAMERAS
Color security cameras that feature night vision use IR LED’s to illuminate the area. The infrared region
of the color spectrum is not visible to the human eye, but is visible to night vision security cameras.
Many light sources including the sun emit infrared light. Unfortunately, infrared light in the daylight
to a security camera sometimes results in strange colors. The color spectrum to the naked eye can
seem to shift, causing for example, the grass to look white or pink. To get around this problem some
cameras contain a special component which filters out infrared light. This gives a high quality image
with truer daytime colors. This component is called an IR cut filter. However, having a permanent filter
in the camera renders it useless if we want to monitor in the dark using infrared light. Therefore, some
cameras feature an automatic IR cut filter to move over or away from the lens when appropriate.
No IR cut filter during daylight

CONNECTING FIRST ALERT WIRELESS
CAMERAS TO WIRED DVR SYSTEMS
Connecting First Alert wireless cameras to our wired DVR systems or other wired DVR systems is very easy.
More importantly, all of the features and recording options in the wired DVR such as schedule recording, mask
field, enhanced motion detect, remote internet and mobile phone access, e-mail alerts and alarm functions all
work as they should. In addition you get the benefit of a large hard drive for extended recording time.
To make the connection you will need a Male BNC to Female RCA adaptor.
This is used to allow the DWS-401 RCA cable to be connected to the BNC
Video In port on the back of the DVR. One adaptor is included in the
DWS-401 Kit. (See image at right).
Step 1: Install and pair the wireless camera to the DWS-401 receiver
as per instructions. Do not insert the SD card. All recording will be done
on the wired DVR. (Note: You must first connect the DWS-401 to a TV
or monitor in order to see the setup menu to pair the camera. Only the
camera video stream and not the setup menu is visible through the BNC
camera connection on the wired DVR.)
Step 2: Attach the BNC Male/RCA Female adaptor described in Step 1 to one of
the Video In BNC ports of the DVR.
Step 3: Connect the AV cable that ships with the DWS-401 to the AV Out port on the DWS-401 receiver. Then
connect the yellow RCA plug to the adaptor on the Video In Port you just installed in Step 2. (Nore: If recording
sound connect the White RCA plug to the Audio In port of the same number as the Video In port. Both port
numbers must be the same to sync the sound with the video image.) That’s it! You’re connected.
Step 4: Configure your recording settings on the wired DVR system.

COMPRESSION FORMATS
The foundation of these standards is JPEG, named after the group that developed
it in the mid-1980s, the Joint Photographic Experts Group. The first JPEG
standard was released in 1991. Another group of developers, in the late 1980s,
developed a standard for compressing moving pictures and audio - the Motion
Picture Experts Group, hence the name MPEG. MPEG-4 was released in 1998.
H.264/AVC (for advanced video coding), is the latest block-oriented motioncompensation-based codec standard developed by the ITU-T Video Coding
Experts Group (VCEG) together with the ISO/IEC Motion Picture Experts
Group (MPEG), and it was the product of a partnership effort known as
the Joint Video Team (JVT). The ITU-T H.264 standard and the ISO/IEC
MPEG-4 AVC standard (formally, ISO/IEC 14496-10 - MPEG-4 Part 10,
Advanced Video Coding) are jointly maintained so that they have identical
technical content. H.264 is used in such applications as Blu-ray Disc, videos
from You Tube and the iTunes Store, DVB broadcast, direct-broadcast
satellite television service, cable television services, and real-time video
conferencing. The standardization of the first version of H.264/AVC was
completed in May 2003. Version 13 was implemented in March 2010.
H.264 provides good video quality at substantially lower bit rates than previous standards. Basically
it compares compressed images using the first compressed image as a reference frame, then it sends
only the parts of the following images that differ from the reference image. This substantially lowers
the amount of data that needs to be transferred making it more attractive for video network delivery
and the delivery of HD video. H.264 is an open format and is available for anyone to implement.
M-JPEG is a picture compression format utilizing a video codec where each frame is separately
compressed into a JPEG image. The resulting quality of video compression is independent
from the motion in the image. Each individual image is a complete JPEG compressed image,
unlike H.264 which uses reference images. M-JPEG technology is simpler however uses more
storage space. As images are compressed, clarity can suffer. A balance needs to be drawn
at reducing image size and keeping the image clear. Latest versions of H.264 improve clarity.
M-JPEG is ideal for courtroom evidence, whereas H.264 could be challenged as every frame is
not a complete picture. However, due to its widespread use H.264 is becoming more accepted for
courtroom evidence, depending on what is being reviewed. Consulting the District Attorney or other
law enforcement authority before using any video format is highly recommended.
