Residential Digital Integration, League City, TX
Joshua Marks has been installing residential electronic systems since 2001, coming to the business after moving through the ranks in the mid-fi retail industry. Acknowledging that the current economic climate requires integration companies to invest in diversity, Moore says that his firm has expanded beyond its hi-fi audio specialization. He has been a SnapAV for more than five years.
How do you rate the Wirepath 500?
I give this product an eight out of 10.
For what types of installations is it best suited?
After several months of surveys from SnapAV we finally got our first 500 series in hand and right off the bat I notice the heavy-duty housing. I opened up the camera and the IR array is immediately noticeable. We mounted and plugged the camera in and the picture was very detailed and bright. The manual gives explanations of all the sub menus and how to tweak the contrast and other picture settings including the night vision. We adjusted the camera setting and got an even better picture.
What is one feature of the Wirepath 500 that stands in your projects?
The night vision was even better than I expected, SnapAV claims 65-feet illumination but I think it could be pushed farther. With a $499 retail price there is profit and ease of installation.
What features would you like to see changed or added?
I would like to see a remote control to adjust the settings without having to dismantle the camera to get the settings adjustment, also a video dongle for a one-man installation. I think this product can be installed in either residential or commercial applications.
