War Driving with X-10 Wireless Video
So we decided to drive
around with my X-10 video receiver in my car. I used a USB TV Tuner so I could
view any signals on my laptop and record without a VCR in my car (And so I could wardrive for WiFi at the same time). I was amazed to find city cameras pointed
at traffic, and even was able to record video of myself driving through an
intersection. We also witnessed this camera pan so now I am interested in how it
is controlled :-)
Update! We found this camera
on the internet! Check it out
A video clip we captured.
You will need
the DiVX codec
to play it..
Right-click and save
A step-by-step of the movement. First
pic blurred by bad reception.
Here are some various other
still images I've snapped from other 2.4GHz wireless cams. Most of these I
simply grab a frame of video while I am driving, so I don't always get the
clearest picture. Usually I get a pretty clear picture at first, but by the time
I notice it and hit the capture button it has started to fade out some. Also, I
have adjusted the brightness and contrast to make these pics as clear as
want to start collecting video's of myself in these cameras as I find them,
however that requires more planning. Most of the ones I could be in view of and
not be illegal are the store cameras and don't have parking close enough for
someone to man a laptop while I go inside, so some antenna work will be needed
Got these two the same night as the
traffic camera above
These two came in off of a highway. The
one on the left (driveway) was at least a quarter mile off the road as far as I
My latest additions.
All this makes me itch for
these babies so I
am not limited to just X-10's 4 channels :-).
