OCULi Wireless PIR Camera

OCULi is a product range of battery powered wireless, PIR motion sensors which have integrated colour/monochrome cameras and infrared illuminators. These products provide rapid video verification of alarm events using the mobile phone 3G network. A dedicated cloud server and web portal provides a full monitoring system as well as an easy way to set up and control the detectors. Alarms and alerts are sent to the OCULi mobile phone app as Push Notification as an alternative means of monitoring.

OCULi System Overview

OCULi uses the mobile phone 3G network and can be sited anywhere there is a network signal available. Simply sign up to SIM usage on a rolling monthly contract and you are ready to go. (SIM price includes the use of the cloud server). Images are streamed over 3G giving exceptional speed and quality of delivery. Connection time to the network using our roaming SIM is fast and non network specific so the strongest signal will always be used. All video & data is stored on the SD card and cloud server until it is deleted by the user.

Superior VGA 640×480 colour video starts filming in just a few milliseconds after detection ensuring that events are not missed. Unrivalled monochrome night-time clarity is achieved using powerful IR LED lighting.

PIR detection range is 15 metres x 90° using a Quad Pyro Sensor and falls well within the camera’s field of view of 135° to ensure detected movements remain in view. Bluetooth® facilitates easy set up using the mobile phone app to determine signal strength, camera view and PIR detection coverage. Sensitivity, pulse counting and AND gating are all configurable using the App or web portal.

Each OCULi detector is programmable to automatically set and un-set up to 3 times per day on a 7 day timer.

On site Arm/Dis-Arm can over-ride the automatic schedule by using the OCULi phone App.

Quad pyro technology minimises false alarms and ensures superior detection performance. OCULi is fully tamper protected with IR anti-masking, 3 axis inertia sensing and enclosure tampers.

Materials needed:  CAT5/5e/6 Cable, RJ45 Plugs, Crimping Tool for RJ45 Plugs

To make a Patch Cable using CAT5/5e/6 first, using the cable stripper on the crimp tool, strip about 25mm of the outer jacket to reveal the 4 twisted pairs being careful not to damage the twisted pairs.  A Stanley knife can also be used if the crimp tool does not have a cable stripper.  Arrange the four twisted pairs as follows from left to right:  Orange White, Orange, Green White, Blue, Blue White, Green, Brown White, Brown.  Straighten the pairs as much as possible whilst keeping them arranged correctly.  Once the pairs are straightened, trim them down to about 10mm, or enough to allow the RJ45 Wedge grip the Cable Jacket when crimped, and insert into your RJ45 Plug with Orange White being in Pin Terminal One and Orange being in Pin Terminal Two and so on, making sure each of the pairs go into the correct Pin Terminal.  You can now use you crimp tool to crimp the RJ45 Plugs pins into the pairs and the RJ45 Plug wedge onto the jacket of the Cable.

RJ45 pins and pair arrangement shown below

Materials Needed: RG59 Coaxial Cable, BNC Plugs, Coaxial Cable Stripping Tool, BNC Crimp Tool.

 

To make up a BNC cable first, using your cable stripping tool, strip about 20mm of the black outer cover from the cable exposing the copper braid, inner insulation and centre conductor.  Next place the BNC Ferrule onto the cable.  Then fold the copper braid backwards onto the black outer cover to reveal the white insulating material.  About 4mm of the white insulating material should now be removed and the centre pin of the BNC placed onto the centre conductor.  Using your BNC crimping tool, crimp the centre pin onto the centre conductor.  Now the BNC plug can be placed onto the cable, allowing the centre pin to be inserted through the BNC plug.  You should hear a click once the centre pin is inserted properly, be a snug fit and the BNC plug should hold the white insulating material.  You can now fold the copper braid over the BNC, place the ferrule over the copper braid and crimp using your crimp tool.  If any copper braid is still showing, it can be trimmed away with an appropriate tool.

 

The below image will show you how to attach a crimp-on BNC Connector to a RG59 Coaxial Cable.

RJ45 Wiring for CAT5/5e/6

Cabling transmits information, and to get that information to where it needs to go the correct connections must be make to an RJ45 connector.  The cable run needs to terminate into a connector, and that connector needs a jack to plug into.  The Registered Jack 45 (RJ45) is a standard type of physical connector for networking cables used widely in networking.  Modern Ethernet cables feature a small plastic plug on each end of the cable.  That plug is inserted into the RJ45 jacks of Ethernet devices. 

RJ45 plugs feature eight (8) pins to which the copper cores of a cable interface electrically.  Each plug has eight locations (positions), spaced about 1mm apart.  Individual wires are inserted using special cable crimping tools.

Wiring for a RJ45 plug is shown below.

 
 

Wiring for RJ45 Jack Sockets

The RJ45 port is the network port on a computer.  This socket has many names.  It is also known as the Ethernet port, the network adapter, the network jack or the RJ45 jack.  A “port” is another name for a socket on a computer, as is “jack.” The RJ45 port is wired directly onto the network adapter inside the computer, and so is the cable interface to that device.  In this instance you will be wiring an RJ45 Wall Socket.  To wire your cable into the socket use an IDC insertion tool to insert each wire core into it’s corresponding terminal.

Wiring for RJ45 Jack Sockets is shown below.

People commonly ask how far they can run Power over Ethernet. The answer is 100 meters from the PoE switch or hub to the PoE dependent device, regardless of where the power is injected. The limitation is not the power; it’s the Ethernet cabling standards that limit the total length of cabling to 100 meters.

There are however some devices that will allow PoE to be provided to a device over the 100m limitation.

Videplus’ PoE switches can provide PoE up the 250m which CCTV mode is turned on

 

The UNV range of NVR units can provide PoE up to 300m when Extended Transmission is enabled.  To enable Extended Transmission, open up the Main Menu, click Camera, select the camera you wish to enable Extended Transmission with, click Configure and finally Tick the Extended Transmission box and save.

Finally Videplus’ VP-EO2C-POE Single Port PoE Ethernet Extender is a high-speed Ethernet transmission device.  It can transmit Ethernet and Power signals together for PoE devices. It transmits data network signals up to 1000 metres over any pair of copper conductors, such as CAT5e, CAT6, coaxial cable.

Power over Ethernet (PoE) is a technology that lets network cables, such as CAT5e or CAT6, carry electrical power.

For example, a security camera would normally require two connections to be made when it is installed:

A network connection, in order to be able to communicate with a DVR and any display equipment.

A power connection, to provide electrical power the camera needs to operate.

However, if the camera is PoE-enabled, only the network connection needs to be made, as it will receive its electrical power from this cable as well.

Power over Ethernet reduces the number of cables required to connect a POE IP camera

Specifying Power over Ethernet brings many advantages to an installation:

Time and cost savings – by reducing the time and expense of having electrical power cabling installed.  Network cables do not require a qualified electrician to fit them, and can be located anywhere.

Flexibility – without being tethered to an electrical outlet, devices such as IP cameras and wireless access points can be located wherever they are needed most, and re-positioned easily if required.

Safety – PoE delivery is intelligent, and designed to protect network equipment from overload, under powering, or incorrect installation.

Reliability – PoE power comes from a central and universally compatible source, rather than a collection of distributed wall adapters.  It can be backed-up by an uninterruptible power supply, or controlled to easily disable or reset devices.

Scalability – having power available on the network means that installation and distribution of network connections is fast, simple and effective.

PoE has many applications such as:

VoIP phones – the original PoE application.  Using PoE means phones have a single connection to a wall socket, and can be remotely powered down, just like with older analogue systems.

IP cameras – PoE is now found throughout networked CCTV surveillance camera systems, where it enables fast deployment and easy re-positioning.

Wireless – Wifi & Bluetooth Access Points and RFID readers are commonly PoE compatible, to allow remote location away from AC outlets, and relocation following site surveys.

How to upgrade to PoE

Adding PoE to your network is straightforward, and there are two routes you can choose:

A PoE switch is a network switch that has Power over Ethernet injection built-in.  Simply connect other network devices to the switch as normal, and the switch will detect whether they are PoE-compatible and enable power automatically.

PoE switches are available to suit all applications, from low-cost unmanaged switches with a few ports, up to complex multi-port rack-mounted units with sophisticated management.

Adding Power over Ethernet using a POE Switch

A midspan (or PoE injector) is used to add PoE capability to regular non-PoE network links.  Midspans can be used to upgrade existing LAN installations to PoE, and provide a versatile solution where fewer PoE ports are required.  Upgrading each network connection to PoE is as simple as patching it through the midspan, and as with PoE switches, power injection is controlled and automatic.  Midspans are available as multi-port rack-mounted units or low-cost single-port PoE injectors.
