Product Description

The Sylvania SY5S1021C-A 5-inch B/W 2-channel Observation System with 1 Camera provides convenience and quality in a robust and complete system. This system allows you to view up to two camera locations individually in full-screen or sequentially with its built-in two-channel switcher. With a weather-resistant camera featuring a built-in microphone for audio, the Sylvania SY5S1021C-A is a complete, self-contained observation system perfect for home or business applications.

The SY5S1021C-A's 5-inch black-and-white monitor is protected by a durable metal cabinet and includes two 6-pin DIN audio/video inputs. This monitor features a speaker with volume control for listen-in audio, as well as RCA audio/video outputs for connecting to a time-lapse VCR or DVR. Powered by an included 13.5-volt DC adapter, this monitor can operate in temperatures between 14 and 104-degrees Fahrenheit.

The camera that comes with the SY5S1021C-A utilizes a 0.33-inch black-and-white CMOS (complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor) image sensor with 3.6mm fixed lens, and achieves 400 TVL (TV lines) of horizontal resolution. Powered from the monitor via the connecting cable, this camera can receive a usable picture in very low-light conditions with a minimum illumination of 0.1 Lux. This unit features an electronic condenser microphone and an electronic auto-iris with shutter speeds ranging from 1/60 to 1/6,000 of a second. The SY5S1021C-A's camera comes with its own 63-foot connection cable, and can operate in temperatures ranging from -14 to 122 degrees Fahrenheit.

Technical Features:

  • Resolution: 400 horizontal TVL
  • Image sensor: 0.33-inch B/W CMOS
  • Sensitivity: minimum illumination of 0.1 Lux
  • Operating temperature: -14 to 122 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Monitor dimensions: 6.2 x 6 x 7.7 inches (W x D x H)
  • Camera dimensions: 2 x 2.5 x 2.8 inches (W x D x H)
Designed primarily for indoor use, the Sylvania SY5S1021C-A offers you everything you need in a basic security surveillance system. Compatible with other Lorex video devices, when used with a time-lapse VCR or DVR the SY5S1021C-A allows up to two cameras to be controlled, viewed, and recorded all by a single unit. Users should note that the CMOS image sensor in the camera may become permanently damaged if exposed to long hours of direct sunlight or halogen light, so the camera should not be mounted or pointed directly at the sun or other bright-light sources.

About Surveillance Camera Technical Features
Lux rating is the measurement used to indicate how sensitive a camera is to light, and stands for the level of light reflected off a piece of paper by a candle from one meter away. Thus a sensitivity of three would mean a camera could generate an acceptable picture of a piece-of-paper-sized object that was illuminated by the equivalent of three candles from one meter away. The lower the level, the better the camera's ability to work in low-light conditions. The camera's resolution should be greater than or equal to the resolution supported by the system's recorder or monitor. The S/N, or signal to noise ratio, is an important measure of a camera's quality. A poor camera, low-light conditions or poor wiring causes "noise" which consumes processing power and disk space. A camera with a wide dynamic range is ideal, especially for recording areas in which both indoor and outdoor light are present. CCD (charge-coupled device) sensors provide high-quality images that are less susceptible to noise. CMOS (complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor) sensors offer less image quality, but are usually more cost-effective and energy efficient.

Customer Reviews:
  • Great Buy
    Bought this item because I needed a rear view camera for our RV. Ran the cable through the cable run on the RV (31 ft). Hooked up the monitor through a DC to AC inverter (cig lighter), made an adapter to mount the camera in the rear window of the RV. Now I can watch the jeep we were towing and the traffic behind us! We just returned from a 7 week 9000+mile trip to Alaska and the camera/monitor worked flawlessly (sp)!...more info
