Cameras. Passive components must not exceed 5V 100mA. Active components must be self-powered by an external power source. For the demonstration below a D-Link DCS-1000 was purchased from www.dlinkshop.com , the security equipment was purchased from www.smarthome.com, and some cable accessories from a local hardware store.
Basic Hardware Set-up Diagram The diagram below shows the hardware configuration for 1 Active Sensor (PIR Motion Sensor), 1 Passive Sensor (Magnetic Switch), and 1 output (For Relay) for a siren. Passive Component Notes!!! Only simple magnetic or contact switches can be used for Passive components. This limitation is by the camera only supplying 5V and less then 100mA current to those circuits.
Camera Configuration Follow the instructions for setting up your wired or wireless camera.

Appendix Frequently Asked Questions Internet Camera Features Q: What is an Internet Camera? A:The Internet Camera is a standalone system connecting directly to an Ethernet or Fast Ethernet network and supported by the wireless transmission based on the IEEE 802.11b standard. It is different from the conventional PC Camera, the Internet Camera is an all-in-one system with built-in CPU and web-based solutions providing a low cost solution that can transmit high quality video images for monitoring.
Q: Can the Internet Camera be setup as a PC-cam on the computer? A: No, the Internet Camera is used only on Ethernet and Fast Ethernet network and supported by wireless transmission. The D-Link DSB-C100, DSB-C300, DSC-350 or DSC-350F can be used as a PC Camera (Webcam).
need to first disconnect the Internet Camera from the network. Then run the PING utility (follow the instructions in Appendix B - PING Your IP Address.) A2: Another possible reason is the IP Address is located on a different subnet. To fix the problem, run the PING utility (follow the instructions in Appendix B - PING Your IP Address).
A3: The wireless connection might be at fault. In ad-hoc mode make sure the Internet Camera wireless channel and ESS-ID is set to match the PC/Notebook wireless channel and ESS-ID for direct communication. Since The Internet Camera ad-hoc mode supports two modes (802.11 ad-hoc mode and proprietary ad-hoc mode), make sure that you are using the same mode on each device.
A2: There might be wireless transmission interference. Make sure there are no other wireless devices on the network that will affect the wireless transmission. Q: The images is of poor quality, how can I improve the image quality? A1: Make sure that your computers display properties are set to at least 15- bit color.
I/O Connector I/O Connector Definition for the Internet Camera An 8-pole connector is provided for auxiliary I/O connections to the Internet Camera.
