I found some GE SmartHome GESECCTVBWC b&w hard wired security cameras at closeout. These were meant to be used with an associated GE monitor that supplied the power to the cameras.
The camera has standard RCA plugs for video and audio output, and a male DC plug for power. There are no markings on the camera or DC plug concerning voltage or polarity. (There are no specifications at all provided on the packaging.)
Anyone out there know what voltage and polarity to use with these cameras? I'm assuming it's either 4.5 or 6 volts - like most other CCD security cameras, but you know what happens when you assume things.
I could at least check the polarity - if I could figure out how to open the case for the camera. But after removing the two obvious screws the case parts won't budge.
Would I likely kill the camera if I applied DC voltage just long enough to see if I got the polarity correct?
